Outline Cultural Materials

Scope note

The Outline was originally developed as a tool for the Cross-Cultural Survey, an organization established in 1937 by the Institute of Human Relations at Yale University as part of its program of interdisciplinary research in the social sciences. Under the direction of George P. Murdock, and after 1945 of Clellan. S. Ford, this organization engaged in assembling and classifying the basic information on a sample of the peoples of the earth. Its ultimate objective was to organize in readily accessible form the available data on a statistically representative sample of all known cultures — primitive, historical, and contemporary — for the purpose of testing cross-cultural generalizations, revealing deficiencies in the descriptive literature, and directing corrective field work.
