BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE



John Leland Champe was born in Elwood, Nebraska on April 27, 1895 and graduated from high school in Friend, Nebraska in 1911.  From 1917 to 1919 he was a member of the 36th Infantry of the U.S. Army.  He rose to the rank of 1st Lieutenant but never actually served over seas in WWI. He received a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Nebraska in 1921.



On December 27, 1924, John Champe married Flavia Waters, a teacher of ballet.  He became a successful businessman and worked for the National Assurance Corporation in Lincoln from 1924 to 1935, eventually becoming Vice President.  Champe, while still in business, became interested in anthropology.  He did graduate work in archaeology at the University of Nebraska from 1934 to 1936.  Deciding to make the field his life’s work, he enrolled as a graduate student in anthropology at Columbia’s University in 1938.  He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1946.



Champe was instrumental in reactivating the Plains Conference in 1947.  The Plains Conference is an annual event that brings together people interested in Plains Anthropology, and gives them a chance to present papers on research they have done.  The first Plains Conference was actually held in 1931, but the conferences were discontinued during the war.



John Champe became an assistant professor of Anthropology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1947, an associate professor in 1950, and a full time professor in 1952.  He was Chairman of the Department of Anthropology from 1953 to 1961.  He worked on numerous archaeological sites throughout Nebraska and the Great Plains.  He did excavations at Ash Hollow Cave near Lewellen, Nebraska. With the Smithsonian Institution River Basin Surveys program, he helped coordinate salvage operations of prehistoric sites located in the reservoir areas of the Middle Missouri.  He did archaeological work in cooperation with the Nebraska State Historical Society and the Nebraska State Museum, and developed an archaeological field school as well.  He retired as a Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Laboratory of Anthropology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1963.



From 1954 to 1978, Champe acted as a consultant and expert witness on a number of court cases involving treaty disputes and land claims between various Native American tribes and the U.S. government.  Among the tribes involved in these cases were the Yankton Sioux, the Omaha, the Pawnee, and the Nez Perce.



John Leland Champe died of a heart attack on January 28, 1978.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE



This manuscript collection consists of materials relating to the career of Dr. John L. Champe.  It is composed of four distinct groups of materials that are listed as subgroups.  These subgroups are 1) Indian Claims Litigation; 2) Archaeological Materials; 3) Miscellaneous; and 4) Maps.  Each of these subgroups is arranged in series and each series into subseries (SS) based on material content (refer to RG2003.AM Champe Collection Outline).



The first subgroup, Indian Claims Litigation, is the largest and is arranged into 23 separate series.  Each series is based on an individual court case or groups of court cases in which Dr. Champe was involved as a researcher and/or expert witness.  Because some of the court cases are so inter-related, it was sometimes difficult to separate documents into individual court cases.  This is why some materials were left under groupings of court cases.   Examples are Series 1 and Series 7 (see Champe Collection Outline).  This will be explained in more detail in the paragraphs to follow.



NOTE:  The dates in parentheses next to each series refer to the dates of materials contained in the collection, not to the actual length of the court cases.  The court cases may or may not have started earlier and ended later than the dates shown on the Collection Outline.



The second subgroup, Archaeological Materials, is arranged in two series:  1) Archaeological Site Information; and 2) Plains Conference.  These series are further arranged into subseries based on content of materials.  Note:  Series 1 contained archaeological site information and was transferred to the Archeology Division.



The third subgroup, Miscellaneous, consists of three series:  1) Biographical Information;  2)  Personal Correspondence; and 3) Other.



The fourth subgroup, Maps, consists of approximately 180 maps stored in nine over-sized folders.  Some of the maps were used by Dr. Champe as exhibits and reference materials in the various Indian Claims court cases.  A list of maps, including their descriptions, is available with the collection.



Subgroup 1:  Indian Claim Litigation



The first five series involve the Yankton Sioux tribe (refer to Collection Outline).  Series 1 (Docket #s 332A-C, 74) contains materials related to all four docket numbers.  Series 2 (Docket #332-A) deals with disputes over land claims.  Series 3 (Docket #332-B) contains monetary compensation/accounting materials.  Series 4 (Docket #332-C) deals with more disputes over land claims.  Series 5 (Docket #74) concerns land disputes between the entire Sioux Nation and the Yankton Sioux tribe.  These dockets started as one court case but later diverged into several separate cases.  The cases started as Docket #332 which dealt with both land claims and monetary compensation/accounting.  After a while the land claims part of the case was split from the monetary compensation/accounting part:  land claims became #332-A; and monetary compensation/accounting became #332-B.



Docket #332-A dealt with several areas of land which were later divided into two separate groups (Royce Area 151 and 410).  One area of land, Area 151, remained in Docket #332 while the other one, Area 410, was placed into a new case which became Docket #332-C.  The earliest court document in the collection for #332-C dates to 1968.  Any documents concerning Area 410 prior to 1968 were left with Docket #332-A (Series 2), while those dated 1968 or later were placed with Docket #332-C (Series 4).



A fourth court case developed out of Docket #332A-C.  This became Docket #74 (Series 5) and dealt with the Sioux Nation as a whole.  The other tribes in the Sioux Nation disagreed with some of the Yankton Sioux tribe’s arguments over land rights, so they went to court against both the U.S. government and the Yankton Sioux tribe.



At times, similar aspects of two different cases were tried at the same time.  This resulted in two different docket numbers showing up on the same document, which made it difficult to keep these dockets separate in the collection.  For the sake of consistency, documents with two docket numbers were placed with the lower series number docket.  For example:  A document with both Docket #332-A (Series 2) and #332-B (Series 3) would be placed with Docket #332-A.  A document with both Docket #332-C (Series 4) and #74 (Series 5) would be placed with Docket #332-C.



Because these Yankton Sioux dockets are so inter-related, some materials, such as expert witness contracts, covered all docket numbers.  Such materials were placed in Series 1.  For similar reasons, the background research materials, which also relate to multiple aspects of all Yankton Sioux dockets, were placed in Series 1.  A large number of research materials were left in original order under Docket #332-B (Series 3) because the surrounding materials were designated for #332-B.  It is possible, however, that some of these materials belong under a different docket number.



Series 6 through Series 23 contain materials related to various court cases not involving the Yankton Sioux.  The materials for these cases are not nearly as complete as those in the Yankton Sioux cases.



NOTE:  There are a number of maps relating to some of these court cases that can be found in “Subgroup 4:  Maps.”



Subgroup 2:  Archaeological Materials



Subgroup 2 is arranged in two series:  1) Archaeological Site Information; and 2)  Plains Conference.  Series 1 includes materials such as site forms and field note books relating to various archaeological sites on which Dr. Champe worked.  It is arranged into subseries based on the county in which the site was located.  These materials have been transferred to the Archeology Division.



Series 2 contains Plains Conference materials, 1931 to 1972.  NOTE:  Audio recordings of some of these conferences are available, but are stored separately.



Subgroup 3:  Miscellaneous



Subgroup 3 is arranged in three series:  1) Biographical Information;  2)  Personal Correspondence; and 3) Other.  Series 1 consists of biographical materials concerning Dr. John L. Champe.  Series 2 contains personal correspondence received by Dr. Champe and Mrs. Flavia Waters Champe.  Series 3 is comprised of  a small amount of materials (three folders) covering diverse subject matter that could not be placed in any other series.



Subgroup 4:  Maps



Subgroup 4 consists of nine over-sized folders of materials.  There are approximately 180 individual articles in this subgroup, some of which are duplicates.  A master list is available giving a brief description of each map.  The maps have numbers assigned to them which correspond to the numbers on the master list.  It is unknown whether or not these designations were used by Dr. Champe or if they were assigned after this collection was accessioned.



The majority of maps appear to have been used for reference purposes by Dr. Champe, possibly for his work on the Indian Claims court cases.  Some of the maps were used as exhibits in the various cases.  See “Subgroup 1:  Indian Claim Litigation.”



The maps are arranged according to the numbers assigned to them on the master list.  However there are gaps in the numbering sequence where the size of the map has dictated separate storage.  Some maps on the list are no longer part of the collection, which created additional numbering gaps.  Some maps containing archaeological site information were transferred to the NSHS Archeology Division.  Some Nebraska maps were transferred to the NSHS Library.  Other generic, non-Nebraska travel/highway maps were removed from the collection entirely.  Map #31 was transferred to a folder of its own (F:8) for preservation purposes.
