Noted pioneer anthropologist Elsie Clews Parsons published four articles on Laguna, Zuni, Hopi, and Tewa mothers and children in the British anthropological journal Man. Editor Babcock, a professor at the University of Arizona, has supplemented these unfamiliar pieces with seven Parsons articles from American journals on Zuni fertility, conception and pregnancy beliefs, women's life cycle, men-women; Hopi and Tewa wedding practices; the Nativity Myth at Laguna and Zuni (1918). Babcock, known for her work on women anthropologists in the Southwest and on Cochiti potter Helen Cordero and the Pueblo Storyteller tradition, provides a valuable introduction on Elsie Clews Parsons and the Pueblo Construction of Gender.
