UPDATE 10/10/14: It seems that Google has neglected this archive and it no longer works properly. Some discussion about this failure here
Time-Life has teamed up with Google to archive their images online. Browsing around I found this gem, a picture of “Anthropologist Franz Boas” from the cover of Time in 1936 (When he was 78). The caption reads: “He translated the world’s gestures.”
UPDATE: Link to article text. (Thanks to raggedrobin!) Here’s a snippet (emphasis added):
Franz Boas got into anthropology 53 years ago. He has invaded almost every branch of this science: linguistics, primitive mentality, folklore, ethnology, growth and senility, the physical effects of environment. He reminds his colleagues of the oldtime family doctor who did everything from delivering babies to pulling teeth.
