Summary

Anthropologist Fay-Cooper Cole (1881-1961) was a professor at the University of Chicago for most of his career. After earning his Ph.D. at Columbia University in 1914, he worked as ethnologist at Field Museum and was a member of various expeditions to the Malay peninsula, Sumatra, Java, and Borneo. He then became the first anthropologist in the sociology department at the University of Chicago and served as chairman of the department of anthropology from 1929 to 1947. This photograph may have been taken around the time of his retirement from university teaching.
