According to A.L. Kroeber, Cushing's residence at Zuni from 1879 to 1894, laid the foundation for the study of ethnology in the Southwest. This beginning of work in the study of the life, manners, and customs of the living Indians in the Southwest, came at a time when the modern study of ethnology was itself very new, dating its beginning back but twenty years before Cushing went to Zuni. It will be my purpose to summarize briefly briefly the history of general anthropology and ethnology, in order to indicate Cushing's place in the sequence as the new science developed.
