G. D'Aguilil, and 15 copies of Aggression Among Nonhuman Primates by Charles Southwick; a letter to Donald Clairmont from Jerome Barkow, detailing his topic for Soc 520 Graduate Seminar, the readings he'll be drawing on (that were available on reserve at the Killam), and his actual speech for the seminar; Barkow's notes for his Human Ethology class in January 1972, where he would go over the exam, introducing anthropology to students who weren't familiar with it, how to construct their papers, and the main topics they would be going over in class and lectures; and Barkow's lecture notes on the topic of play behavior, and how society views it as shameful, and something only children do.
