Biographical and/or Historical note

Professor Hoxie serves as the Swanlund Professor of History at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and is affiliated also with the College of Law and the American Indian Studies program. A specialist in U.S. and Native American history, Dr. Hoxie came to the University of Illinois in 1998 from the Newberry Library, a private research library in Chicago, where he had served as vice president for research and education. At the Newberry, he developed programs for scholars, students and teachers that promoted the study of the Native American past and administered an internationally-acclaimed research and fellowship program for scholars in all fields. He also oversaw the library’s exhibits and programs for the general public.

These programs were supported by a variety of foundations and government agencies, including the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Dr. Hoxie received his undergraduate degree from Amherst College in 1969 and his Ph.D. degree from Brandeis University in 1977. He is the recipient of honorary degrees from Amherst College (1994), and Long Island University (2000). He taught at Antioch College from 1977-1983, and from 1986-1998 was an adjunct professor of history at Northwestern University.

His publications include A Final Promise: The Campaign to Assimilate the American Indians, 1880-1920 (1984), The Crows (1989), Parading Through History: The Making of the Crow Nation in America, 1805-1935 (1995). He also edited The Encyclopedia of North American Indians (1996), Talking Back to Civilization: Indian Voices from the Progressive Era (2001) and The People: A History of Native America (2007). In 2007, the University of Illinois Press published Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country: The Native American Perspective, edited by Hoxie and former student Jay T. Nelson. The book grew out of an exhibit of the same name, curated by Hoxie, which is currently on a twelve-city national tour. Professor Hoxie served as a consultant and expert witness to the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, the National Park Service, the Cheyenne River and Standing Rock Sioux Tribes and Little Big Horn College.

He is general editor of The American Indians, a 23-volume series of books published by Time-Life which has sold over two million copies, and series editor (with Neal Salisbury) for Cambridge Studies in American Indian History, published by Cambridge University Press. Dr. Hoxie is a trustee of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, and has served on the boards of Amherst College, the Illinois Humanities Council and the Organization of American Historians. He is the former president of the American Society of Ethnohistory and has held fellowships from the Rockefeller, Mellon Foundations, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.


This collection consists of research done for the book Parading Through History: The Making of the Crow Nation in America 1805-1935. The materials collected include, copies of agents letter, tribal council minutes, allotment leases, land sales of 1890, marriages, district meeting minutes, social relations, irrigation reports, labor wages, politics, legal court cases and issues, oil, grazing, farming issues, Crow interviews, field notes, maps, photographs, long runs of Agent reports, newspaper notes, clippings, miscellaneous statistics, notes and files, census records, audio tapes, microfilm, correspondence, miscellaneous articles on Crow. All this research took a great time to collect, organize, write up, re-write and publish. The amount of information here comes from across the United States, and is most invaluable to the Archives here at Little Big Horn College.

Scope and Content Note

This collection entails everything that would showcase the steps the Crow tribe endured to progress up to 1935. The collection includes every aspect of Crow life in the late 1800s into the early 1900s. It paints a unique picture of the Crow whom took hardships in stride and kept marching forward through historical markers to finally come into the 20th century. The information collected is a treasure as it is knowledge into the memories of a people who survived the progress of evolution.
