EDWIN M. SHOOK

EDWIN M. SHOOK A legendary figure in Maya archaeology, Edwin M. Shook, passed away at his home in Antigua, Guatemala, on March 9, 2000. Ed was one of the most prodigiously active figures in Mesoamerican archaeology during the twentieth century and may well have worked at more archaeological sites than any other Mesoamerican scholar. His career spanned more than 60 years and included associations with luminaries such as Alfred V. Kidder, Sylvanus Morley, Tatiana Proskouriakoff, Ledyard Smith, and Gustavo Stromsvik, to name just a few. In addition to his many outstanding contributions as a scholar, Ed will be remembered for his generosity and friendship. He was a friend and mentor to many generations of Mesoamerican field workers in archaeology, ethnography, and the natural sciences. No one fortunate enough to have spent an evening in his company will forget his enthralling stories of adventure, exploration, and discovery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Ancient Mesoamerica Cambridge University Press

Abstract

A legendary figure in Maya archaeology, Edwin M. Shook, passed away at his home in Antigua, Guatemala, on March 9, 2000. Ed was one of the most prodigiously active figures in Mesoamerican archaeology during the twentieth century and may well have worked at more archaeological sites than any other Mesoamerican scholar. His career spanned more than 60 years and included associations with luminaries such as Alfred V. Kidder, Sylvanus Morley, Tatiana Proskouriakoff, Ledyard Smith, and Gustavo Stromsvik, to name just a few. In addition to his many outstanding contributions as a scholar, Ed will be remembered for his generosity and friendship. He was a friend and mentor to many generations of Mesoamerican field workers in archaeology, ethnography, and the natural sciences. No one fortunate enough to have spent an evening in his company will forget his enthralling stories of adventure, exploration, and discovery.
