Biographical/Historical Note

Anthropologist and author Mary Lindsay Elmendorf is best known for her studies of Mayan women in the village of Chan Kom, Mexico, and for her work as a consulting anthropologist in the application of appropriate technology for community participation and involvement. Dr. Elmendorf received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the Union Institute in 1972. Earlier education included an A.B. in psychology (1937), a M.A. equivalent from the School of Public Administration and Social Work (1941), and graduate training in sociology and anthropology, all at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

In her early career, Dr. Elmendorf held various positions in the United States and abroad, working in the rural south and the slums of Boston and New Haven in the late 1930s, and at the Putney School in Vermont and Mexico in the early 1940s. She performed volunteer work with the American Friends Service Committee in Europe from 1944-1946, working in the prisons and with displaced people and later serving as Director of the Spanish Refugee Program. In 1947 the American and British Friends were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work during and after World War II, and Dr. Elmendorf considered this to be one of her greatest honors. Following her European volunteer work, she returned to graduate studies in anthropology at Chapel Hill. In addition to her dissertation research, she completed several other studies of the women of Chan Kom and of other women in Latin America.

From 1952 to 1960, Dr. Elmendorf was head of the CARE office in Mexico, and later served as a consultant to the Peace Corps and the Overseas Education Fund of the League of Women Voters. At the same time she designed and supervised internships and off-campus study with the Peace Corps, CARE, and other groups for students at Brown University and New College of Florida (where her husband was Vice President 1961-65 and President 1965-72, respectively). In 1975, she accepted a staff position at the World Bank in the Division of Environment and Health. As the first anthropologist hired by the World Bank she prepared the first sociocultural impact study to add the human dimensions to the already required environmental impact studies. In 1977 she began her career as a consulting anthropologist to the World Bank and other organizations, while continuing her research on women with an initial two year grant to examine fertility determinants among the Maya.

Her career as an educator included various projects at Brown University (1962-65), New College (1965-68), as visiting professor at Hampshire College (1971), Goddard College (1973), World Campus Afloat (1973-1974), and adjunct professor at the University of Florida (1990-2000).

Dr. Elmendorf participated in all of the United Nations Conferences on Women: Mexico (1975), Copenhagen (1980), Nairobi (1985), and Beijing (1995). She was a member of the United States delegation to the United Nations Water Conference (1977). In 1992 she was a delegate to the Earth Summit UNCED (United Nations Conference on Environment and Development) in Rio de Janeiro. She worked as a consultant for CEDPA (Center for Population and Development Activities) before, during and after the Rio de Janeiro Conference.

The emphasis of her professional career, as it was in much of her research, has been on ways to involve people concerned in the implementation of technology and development. She has focused on involving women--often the primary users and managers--in the planning and implementation of suitable technologies for community participation and involvement, in terms of people's choosing and managing their own development strategies. Some notable projects on which she has worked include preparation of a human impact assessment for the Bura Dam (Kenya) Irrigation Project, the World Bank project on Water Supply and Waste Disposal in Developing Countries, the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade, and water projects in Sri Lanka, the Philippines, and Thailand. Her book and monograph publications include The Mayan Woman and Change (1972), La Mujer Maya y el cambio (1973), Nine Mayan Women (1976), Socio-Cultural Aspects of Water Supply and Excreta Disposal (1980), Seven Case Studies of Rural and Urban Fringe Areas in Latin America (editor, 1982), The International Drinking Water and Sanitation Decade (1980-1990) and Women's Involvement (1990).

She is also the author of numerous technical reports, chapters in books, journal articles, and conference presentations. Among the honors and recognition received by Elmendorf are the Margaret Mead Award for applying principles of anthropology to the resolution of issues of contemporary human concern, presented by the American Anthropological Association and the Society for Applied Anthropology in 1982. In 1993 the University of North Carolina honored Dr. Elmendorf with its Distinguished Alumna Award.

Mary and her first husband, John Elmendorf, were classmates at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1935 to 1937. They married in December of 1937, following graduation. "John and Mary Elmendorf--A Mosaic" (Series 4, Box 1) captures highlights of the 43 years they shared. The John Elmendorf Collection in the Archives of New College documents his role as President. From 1977 to his death in 1980, John Elmendorf continued his career as Vice-President of the Academy for Educational Development in Washington, D.C. Mary Elmendorf is now married to Dr. John Landgraf, retired anthropologist and as she, an adjunct of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida. They live in Sarasota, Florida.

Scope and Content

The Papers of Mary Lindsay Elmendorf include manuscripts, notes, correspondence and memoranda, journals, household surveys, publications and "gray" literature, audio tapes, photographs, and other documentation created or used by her. The Papers document most of her long career, beginning with her position as head of the CARE office for Mexico, and including her doctoral research on the lives of the Mayan women of Chan Kom, Mexico, and other research on the roles of women, her career as a consulting anthropologist to the World Bank and numerous other organizations, and some aspects of her personal life. In addition to her dissertation research on "Mayan Women and Change," published as Nine Mayan Women (Cambridge, 1976), the Papers include extensive documentation of her study with Deborah Merrill of the socio-impact of development on Chan Kom women, and a larger project in collaboration with Alfonso Villa Rojas and others on Behavior among Mayan Women (series 1, 16 boxes). Her participation on a Ford Foundation Task Force on Women resulted in the production of several papers including a chapter, "Mexico: the Many Worlds of Women," in the book Women: Roles and Status in Eight Countries (New York, 1977). In addition to Elmendorf's own research and manuscripts, the Papers include copies of the manuscripts and working papers of other contributors. The Papers also include documentation of other of Elmendorf's studies on women in Latin America, including "Suggestions, Recommendations and Resources for Enhancing the Role of Women in Development: Peru, Chile, and Brazil" and the "Women Governors of the Dominican Republic" (series 2, 6 boxes).

The second major topic of the Papers is the application of appropriate technology (series 3, 18 boxes), especially the provision of clean water and sanitation, women's health, and ways to involve women in the planning and implementation of such projects. Among the major projects are Water Supply and Waste Disposal in Developing Countries (5 boxes), numerous studies and projects emanating from the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD, 6 boxes), and a study on the social impact of the Bura Irrigation project in Kenya (1.5 boxes). The Water Supply and Waste Disposal project was an extension of Elmendorf's Latin American interests, as all the case studies including the village of Chan Kom, are from Latin America. Documentation of the IDWSSD is extensive. As a consultant to an Interagency Task Force on Women's Involvement and a United Nations Development Program assignment on the Promotion of the Role of Women in Water and Environmental Sanitation Services (PROWESS), Elmendorf prepared a paper on the prospect for women's involvement at the beginning of the Decade and at the end an assessment, The IDWSSD and Women's Involvement (1990). Also documented are her involvement with numerous projects as a consultant to Water and Sanitation for Health (WASH), the U.S. Agency for International Development arm of the Decade, and other organizations such as the Institute for Rural Water and Global Water. Specific projects include assessments in Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the Philippines. In addition to Elmendorf's own work, the IDWSSD papers include extensive documents from the agencies with which she was associated.

The General Series of the Papers (series 4) include personal and professional correspondence (1.5 boxes), a collection of biographical material and documents relating to opposition to the Vietnam War and advisement of draft resisters (.5 boxes), manuscripts of Elmendorf's writings and presentations not included in the project files (1 box), files from participation in many professional and academic conferences (4 boxes), and many pre-publication documents, often with notes and accompanying correspondence (7 boxes). There are three boxes of audio-visual material, primarily audio tapes of interviews with Mayan women and conference proceedings (Series 5). Additional descriptions are found with each series.

The 1st accession of the Elmendorf Papers is arranged in five series: Series 1 - Mayan Women in Chan Kom, 1969-1979; Series 2 - Early Career and Women's Studies; Series 3: Appropriate Technology; Series 4: General Papers; Series 5: Audio-Visual Formats; and Series 6: Supplement and Addendum (1997). The 2nd accession is arranged in the same five series as the 1st accession. The 3rd accession also adheres to this five-series arrangement, but all of the materials in Accession 3 are found under Series 4.

The 2nd Accession, acquired between 2002 and 2003, both complements material in the original accession, prior to 1995, and adds new papers created since 1994. The second accession is arranged in the same five series as was the original: (1) Mayan Women (2) Early Career and Women's Studies (3) Applied Technology, (4) General Papers, and (5) Audio-Visual Material. Series 1 has been expanded to include material somewhat beyond the original scope of Elmendorf's own work with Mayan women, but is still nearly all Mayan related. A large part of the Series includes manuscripts and other documents relating to a forthcoming book, based on a 1997 American Anthropological Association panel in honor of Elmendorf's career in Mayan studies, including two chapters by Elmendorf (Boxes 5-6). The series also contains field notes taken by Elmendorf and Alfonso Villa-Rojas (Box 1).

Series 2 expands considerably the quantity of papers relating to Elmendorf's early involvement with CARE in Mexico, the Peace Corps, the Women's Governors Project in the Dominican Republic, and the Overseas Group of the League of Women Voters. A new, small component of her work with the American Friends Service Component during World War II has been added.

Numerous documents have been added to the Appropriate Technology Series (Series 3), especially relating to the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD) and Promotion of the Role of Women in Water and Environmental Sanitation Services (PROWWESS) project (Boxes 2-5). New topics in the series include water, sanitation, and population projects in Central America and Mexico (Boxes 6-7), a box on several Indian projects (Box 8), relating to waste disposal and women's employment and financial issues. Some papers relating to the Florida environment (Box 7) demonstrate Elmendorf's interest and participation in local environment concerns and in simple technological solution to those problems. Box 9 includes documents relating to the editing of the Women, Water, Sanitation abstract journal.

Series 4 includes two major presentations by Elmendorf, one entitled "Priorities, Challenges and Strategies: A Feminine Perspective, 1975-1995" made to the 1996 WEDEC conference in India (Box 3) and the other, "Water is Life: A View through the Eyes of a Women," a seminar at the International Women's University in Germany (Box 4). A major part of the series (Boxes 7-9) relates to the Fourth Women's World Conference, Beijing, 1995, especially the NGO Forum, to which Elmendorf was a delegate, representing the United Nations Association (UNA/USA) and the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). At the Beijing Conference she organized a panel of participants from the 1975 Conference to review progress made during twenty years. The records in this Series document greater participation with local groups and women's issues than in the first accession. The Series also contains biographical records and correspondence (Boxes 1-2) and additional conference presentations and organizational participation (Boxes 3-5). A substantial quantity of papers relate to the Habitat II Town Hall, held in Sarasota, in 1996, preliminary to the Habitat II International conference in Istanbul.

The 3rd accession to the collection, acquired in 2005 and 2006, includes correspondence, biographical, writings, photographs, and other materials. There are several folders pertaining to the book inspired by ME's research, Rights, Resources, Culture and Conservation in the Land of the Maya. Additionally, there are several folders pertaining to organizations and corporate bodies, including UNICEF, the United Nations, the Society for Applied Anthropology, and the University of Florida. All of the folders in Accession 3 have been added as under Series 4, and the materials in this accession both compliment and add to the materials existing in Series 4 under the first two accessions to the collection.

Contents List

Series 1: Mayan Women in Chan Kom, 1967-1979, 1945-1994 (bulk 1971 - 1978)

9 Linear feet. 16 boxes.

The Series is based on three [separate] projects: 1. Mayan Women and Change (1971-1975), Elmendorf's dissertation research. 2. Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom: 1971-1976 with Deborah Merrill Sands. 3. Behavior among Mayan Women (1977-1979), a larger project conducted in collaboration with Alfonso Villa Rojas and others. Related audio tapes and slides are included in the Audio-Visual series (no.5).

In 1967, Dr. Elmendorf returned to academics to pursue her Ph.D. in Anthropology. She conducted her field research in Chan Kom, Yucatan, Mexico, under the direction of Alfonso Villa Rojas, with whom she had collaborated while serving as director of CARE in Mexico. The research concentrated on women's roles in social change. Dr. Elmendorf completed her dissertation, "Mayan Women and Change," in 1972. The dissertation was first published in 1972 by Ivan Illich at CIDOC as a case study to use in his seminar on Quality of Life. The Mexican Ministry of Education published a Spanish version of the dissertation, La Mujer Maya y el Cambio, that same year and distributed it to public schools and libraries throughout Mexico. In 1976, the dissertation was edited to become Nine Mayan Women: A Village Faces Change. See "Mayan Women and Change, 1971-1975" (boxes 1 and 2) for more information. Between 1976 and 1978, Dr. Elmendorf, with her former student from Hampshire College, Deborah Merrill, returned to conduct research in Chan Kom. The study was funded by the World Bank. The research was designed to analyze the impact of various development projects from 1971 to 1976, and was based on previous research conducted by Elmendorf and Merrill. The resulting paper "Socio-Economic Impact of Development Projects in Chan Kom, 1971-1976," was presented at the 1978 Annual Meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. See "Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom: 1971-1976" (boxes 3 and 4) for more information. Between 1977-1979, Dr. Elmendorf and Alfonso Villa Rojas conducted applied research in Chan Kom and elsewhere in Yucatan on issues of fertility determinants among the Maya and on socio-economic variables affecting the determinants. The variables included contact with the outside world, the level of education, value of the children, and the acceptance of new technologies into the family. Brigette Jordan, Deborah Merrill and several Mexican colleagues, including Hilaria Mass Coli, assisted in the field research. Support was provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). This project resulted in numerous papers, one of which, "Changing Role of Maya Mothers and Daughters," was ultimately published in Women and Technological Change in Developing Countries (1979) and another, "Anita: A Mayan Peasant Woman Copes," in Studies in Family Planning (Nov./Dec. 1979). See "Behavior Among Mayan Women, 1977-1979" (boxes 5-16) for more information.


Mayan Women and Change, 1971-1976

Papers in this project include manuscripts, publications, correspondence, and notes and notebooks related to Elmendorf's dissertation, "Mayan Women and Change." In addition to notes for and versions of the dissertation, there are manuscripts of several other papers discussing women's roles in social change that are based on the Mayan Women research. Several of these papers were presented at various conferences attended by Dr. Elmendorf between 1971 and 1973. Research for "Mayan Women and Change" was conducted on repeated field trips to Chan Kom between March, 1971, and July, 1972, is recorded in the field notes and other notes. The paper entitled "The Role of Women as Agents for Peaceful Social Change" contains the preliminary problem statement for Dr. Elmendorf's dissertation. The dissertation itself "demonstrated how women sacrificed, cooperated and planned strategies to survive better and/or maintain traditions they valued." It was presented to the Union Graduate School in June, 1972. An abstract of the dissertation was presented at the Ninth Annual International Conference of Anthropology and Ethnology (ICAES) in Chicago, 1973, and was published in 1975 as a chapter in the book Women Cross-culturally: Change and Challenge, edited by Ruby Leavitt. Included in the folder with "Mayan Women and Change" (1972) are several letters and prefaces added to the dissertation to create Nine Mayan Women, published in 1976. Also included with this section is a collection of correspondence, dealing with the dissertation topic and proposal. Also related to the research in Chan Kom are a series of cassette tapes of personal interviews conducted by Dr. Elmendorf between 1971 and 1972. There are approximately 39 tapes documenting the opinions and beliefs of the Mayas of Chan Kom. Dr. Elmendorf also recorded several conferences she attended during 1973. For more information on these tape, see the Audio-Visual series (no. 5).

Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom: 1971-1976, with Deborah Merrill (1971-1978)

In 1976, Mary Elmendorf traveled to Chan Kom with her former student from Hampshire College, Deborah Merrill. The World Bank funded the six week stay in Chan Kom. The purpose of their visit was to conduct research to determine the impact of several development projects over a five year period, 1971-1976, on the lives of men and women in the village. The study is based, in part, on research conducted by Elmendorf and Merrill prior to 1971. Comparisons were made to baseline data gathered during their previous visits to Chan Kom. Three versions of the text are included: "Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom - 1971-1976: Rural Women Participate in Change"; "Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom - 1971-1976: Rural Women Participate in Change - A Preliminary Study"; and "Socio-Economic Impact of Development in Chan Kom - 1971-1976: Rural Women Participate in Change - An Executive Summary." Collectively, these papers provide (1) a description of Chan Kom and its social, political, and economic organization (including patterns predominant prior to 1971); (2) A discussion of development projects: a new road, establishment of bus services, electricity, running water, a cooperative store, a health clinic, and an agricultural extension station; (3) A discussion of changes in family structure, marriage and family, housing and population; (4) a discussion of changes relating to income producing activities; (5) and a discussion of changes in the role of women. After completion of the project, Elmendorf and Merrill were invited to submit their text for publication in Human Organization. The collection includes correspondence with the publishers and revisions of the text based on their comments. However, time constraints and other commitments kept Elmendorf and Merrill from being able to edit the paper to the editor's satisfaction, and the paper was never published. Also related to the research in Chan Kom are a series of cassette tapes recording the personal interviews conducted by Dr. Elmendorf, Deborah Merrill and Brigette Jordan between 1976 and 1979. There are approximately 27 tapes documenting the opinions and beliefs of the Mayas of Chan Kom. (For more information on these tapes see the Audio-Visual series, no. 5.).

Behavior Among Mayan Women, 1977-1979

In 1977, Mary Elmendorf, with the collaboration of Alfonso Villa Rojas of Mexico, began the project titled "Behavior among Mayan Women." The project was sponsored by the Research Institute for the Study of Man (RISM) and funded by the Office of Population, Bureau for Development Support, Agency for International Development (AID). The ultimate purpose of the study was to detail how the Mayan women of Chan Kom view family planning and how they handle the cultural constraints and supports. The project was designed to "(1) augment the basic knowledge of changing roles and status of women in fertility behavior in relation to education/learning and female employment/ economic opportunities; and (2) provide basic information for implementing an improved module for a maternal/child health/family planning service." The final write-up of the project resulted in several papers by different authors; therefore there is some duplication in the material. The field work consisted of six months in Yucatan studying the (1) changing roles and status of women, (2) household economy and the contributions of men, women and children, (3) spatial mobility, including migration patterns and how they relate to education, work and world views, and (4) communication and decision-making of couples. Both Elmendorf and Villa Rojas had previously conducted research in the Yucatan area and had established a series of relationships and contacts. Villa Rojas conducted research in three additional villages, one of which was Piste, providing limited material for comparative data. The paper titled "Behavior among Mayan Women in the Yucatan Peninsula in Relation to Demographic and Technological Change" provides an in-depth discussion of the project itself, including the methodology, participants and resulting papers. Several papers were prepared for seminars or conferences. "Changing Patterns of Fertility" was presented at the Society for Applied Anthropology in 1980. "Changing Family Structures and Development: Impact on the Child" was prepared for the conference of the Midwest Association for Latin American Studies, Michigan State University, October 1979. "Changing Roles and Status of Maya Mothers and Daughters" was prepared for the annual meeting of Society for Applied Anthropology, March 1979. And finally, "Changing Roles of Mayan Women in the Home and in the Market Place" was presented at the First Mexican/Central American Symposium on Research about Women, Mexico City, Mexico, in November, 1977. Related to the fertility project are a series of slides taken between 1971 and 1979. A set of slides of a traditional Mayan birth was taken by Brigette Jordan. (For more information, see the Audio-Visual series, 5.).

Rights, Resources, Cultures and Conservation in Maya Communities of Yucatan, Mexico, 1952-1962

The 1997 American Anthropological Society meeting included a Panel in Honor of Mary Elmendorf, with concluding comments by her.

Betty Faust and E. N. Anderson. Greenwood Press, in Press), including two chapters by Mary Elmendorf. One of these, "The Many Worlds of Mayan Women," is an extended version of a presentation given at the 1994 University of Florida seminar, "The Wisdom of the Maya." The other "Conclusions: Reflections on Rights, Resources, Culture and Conservation in Participatory Research" is an extension of Elmendorf's remarks given to the Panel.

The Papers include a manuscript of the complete book, drafts of individual chapters, especially those by Elmendorf, drafts of the Papers from the AAA Panel, and e-mail regarding the preparations for the Panel and for the editing and publication of the book. Several of the drafts include Elmendorf's autograph notations.

Many Worlds of Women (Ford Foundation) 1973-1993 (bulk 1973-1986)

In 1973, Dr. Elmendorf was invited to join the Ford Foundation's first task force on women. She was asked to prepare several reports and materials for the offices in New York and Mexico City. Her research resulted in several papers: "Changing Roles and Status of Women in Mexico," "Working paper for Reporting Session, July 1973" and "Many Worlds of Women - Mexico." This last paper was subsequently published in two forms, one for the internal use of the Ford Foundation (the long version) and another in the book edited by Janet Giele and Audrey Smock, Women : Roles and Status in Eight Countries (1976). A section, "images of women," was omitted from the book, but can be read in the long version of the papers listed below. The additional papers listed here are chapters from the whole book One chapter and the conclusion are missing. The working papers section include a large portion of the references used by Dr. Elmendorf in her research.

USAID: Enhancing the Role of Women: Peru, Chile, Brazil and World Campus Afloat, 1973-1975

Because she had previously written a paper for the Ford Foundation about the changing roles of women in Mexico, USAID asked Dr. Elmendorf to write a comparative study of women in Brazil, Chile and Peru. Dr. Elmendorf conducted research while teaching a seminar with the World Campus Afloat program, a student study/travel semester sponsored by Chapman College. The research resulted in the paper "Suggestions, Recommendations, and Resources for Enhancing the Role of Women in Development: Peru, Chile and Brazil." Only three countries are included in the final report, but the folders included in the background research section show contacts used by Dr. Elmendorf in other countries.

World Bank Research Project 671-46 (Water Supply and Waste Disposal in Developing Countries), 1960-1990 (bulk 1975-1990)

These papers represent a major research project concerning appropriate technology for waste water and waste disposal. They include World Bank memoranda, reports, briefings, background materials, consultants reports, findings of research centers studying appropriate technology, questionnaires, maps, and other data regarding the project and the seven communities involved. Also included are national documents from several of the Latin American countries where the studies were done and local documents and "contracts" from the communities studied. Mary Elmendorf, and a number of consultants and researchers, were involved in carrying out the investigations utilizing social science methodologies and techniques. They included Patricia K. Buckles, Bertha Salinas, Roberto Caceres, Frank C. Miller, Cynthia A. Cone, Isabel Nieves, W. Timothy Farrell, Rafael Rodriguez, Charles Pineo, and Michael McGarry. John M. Kalbermatten, DeAnne S. Julius, and Charles Gunnerson were members of the World Bank staff through whom Mary Elmendorf and the other investigators and consultants reported and communicated. Several of the consultants had connections to the Agua del Pueblo project in Guatemala, the Centro de Estudios Mesoamericanos sobre Technologia Appropriada, and the National Plan for Environmental Sanitation in Rural Areas.

The research projects investigated the socio-cultural factors in seven communities in the rural areas and urban fringes of Latin America which influenced the people's responses to appropriate technologies for water supply and for excreta disposal. The seven communities studied were San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala; Chijtinimit and Chontala, Guatemala; Yalcuc, Mexico; Las Chacras, El Salvador; Villarrica, Colombia; La Fuente, Masaya, Las Mangas, and Licoroy, Nicaragua; and Chan Kom, Mexico. The collection of papers reflects the various levels of organization, research, and information channels from the most complex World Bank operations to the interviews and local documents of the small communities. There are significant draft materials and personal notes throughout the collection. The final reports of each case study include suggestions on the way in which social and cultural factors can be integrated into project designs so that the new appropriate technologies can be accepted, used, and maintained.

The materials are arranged into two broad categories: 1) World Bank General: background materials relevant to the concept of the project, consultancy arrangements, general World Bank memoranda, etc. 2) Case Study Materials by Locations - The papers applicable to a specific community, region, or country for the seven cases. There are additional background materials on Haiti, Kuala Lumpur, and Japan concerning projects involving sanitation and water supply.

International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD), 1980-1990

The series contains Elmendorf's publications, processed papers and presentations, manuscripts, notes, and correspondence from various IDWSSD projects, as well as many publications and documents, which provide background information. Many of these contain Elmendorf's annotations, markings, etc. and represent activities in which she participated. Following recommendations of the United Nations Water Conference at Mar del Plata in 1977, the General Assembly, in 1980, designated 1981-1990 as the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD). Its goal, to provide universal clean water and sanitation by 1990. Many international organizations and national governments joined this effort. International activities were coordinated by a Steering Committee for Cooperative Action. An Inter-Agency Task Force on Women's Involvement was created in 1982. As a consulting anthropologist, Mary Elmendorf participated in a number of ways, with emphasis on the involvement of women. As a consultant to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) she participated in a project for the Promotion of the Role of Women in Water and Environmental Sanitation Services (PROWWESS Project INT/83/03) and in a project on low-cost water and sanitation (INT/82). She was also a member the team that wrote a water and sanitation plan for the government of Sri Lanka, participated as a consultant to the U.S. Water and Sanitation Health Decade (WASH), under a contract to Camp, McKee, and Dresser (CMD) from the U.S. Agency for International Development, and as a member of the Institute for Rural Water's Knowledge Synthesis project. At the beginning of the decade she prepared papers on the prospects for the decade and women's involvement, and at the end, an assessment.

Institute for Rural Water Knowledge Synthesis Project (AID), 1978-1982

Between 1980 and 1982, Mary Elmendorf worked as a consultant to the Institute for Rural Water under a contract from the AID to produce reference information on safe water and sanitation for use by technicians and planners actually engaged in field work in such projects. The output included a reference manual, Safe Water and Sanitation for Health (1983?) and several fact sheets. This work was apparently also referred to as the "Knowledge Synthesis" project. Elmendorf was employed to write a chapter on "Community Participation," for the manual, some of the fact sheets, and to advised on the editing of the entire work. The papers include drafts and notes of her chapter, including workshop presentations, outlines and drafts for the entire manual, drafts of some chapters, notes, and outlines for the Fact Sheets, and correspondence regarding the project.

Dr. Elmendorf labelled the first two tapes as A and B. They have been renumbered as 1 and 2. Tapes 1 - 35 cover the main research conducted by Elmendorf for her dissertation. The list was compiled by Dr. Elmendorf herself from the notes on the labels of the tapes. Tapes 36 - 67 cover various field visits to Chan Kom from 1972 - 1981. Tapes 68 - 76 are interviews with other academics, or are notes for various papers written by Dr. Elmendorf. Tapes 77 - 79 do not have labels, but the list reflects what is actually heard on the tapes. Tapes 80 - 87 were recorded at the Interamerican Commission of Women - Office of American States and the Interamerican Indian Institute (INI) Conference in Guatemala City in 1973. Tapes 88 - 92 were recorded at the Special Seminar on Women and Science in the American Continent held in Mexico City in 1973 and sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Sessions from two separate days recorded on several tapes (one set of labels is written in pencil and one set in green ink).
