Interesting Question Willard.

One thought from my disciplinary base is that this might stem from the
wider dissemination of anthropological ideas which critically involve
taking seriously peoples on the European-north American periphery. Two
key works are Malinowski’s "Argonauts of the Western Pacific" 1922 and
then Margaret Mead's "Coming of age in Samoa"  1928 (for all the later
controversy about it this was very widely read in the 1940s and 1950s)

Hope this helps
