graphic records of Hopi singing, were added to the previous contents of the Hemenway Room at the Peabody Museum. The songs were studied by Mr. Gilman and form the subject of the present volume. In the winter of 1892 and 1893 Mrs. Hemenway commissioned Dr. Fewkes to take to Madrid a representative collection of objects from the Hopi Pueblos for exhibition at the Exposicion Historico-Americana held on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. The musical results of the Expedition were of great interest to Mrs. Hemen­way, who in 1893 commissioned Mr. Gilman to make a collection of phonographic records of exotic music at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago. A number of cylinders were inscribed with vocal and instru­mental performances by Javanese, Samoans, Syrians, and Kwakiutl Indians, and have since been deposited with the collections from the Pueblos at the Peabody Museum.
The field work of the Expedition came to an end at Mrs. Hemenway's death in March, 1894. The following publications record its results: —
