Osgood is best known for his research among the Athabascan speaking people of interior Alaska, including the Bearlake Indians, Han, Tanaina, Kuchin, and Anvik people, and for his detailed ethnographies and linguistic studies. Osgood also did field work in Connecticut, China and Korea. Much of his research was published through the “Yale University Publications in Anthropology.” [Biography adapted from the Peabody Museum’s website].
