Households and Families of the Longhouse Iroquois at Six Nations Reserve is the recently published anthropological study conducted during 1956-1958 by Merlin Myers (1923-91). As part of Syracuse University's Studies in the Anthropology of North American Indians Series, the book brings the original research completed years earlier to the general reader. Myers studied the kinship (clans) relations, economics, and household organization among Longhouse families on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve. The fieldwork done over a two-year period collected data from 150 families regarding the household structure and functions and analyzed the findings according to the structural-functional anthropological theory prominent among British anthropologists of the period. In this sense, the preface by the late anthropologist's wife compares and contrasts her husband's research with Annemarie Shimony's ground-breaking book, Conservatism Among the Iroquois at the Six Nations Reserve. In contrast to Myer's, Shimony's work identifies informants throughout her work. Myers employs pseudonyms for identification of informants but lists specific names of individuals in the acknowledgements and in the captions for the numerous black and white photographs included in the text.
