Anthropology and the Classics

Excerpt

Clyde K. M. Kluckhohn, Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Southwestern American Ethnology in the Peabody Museum, Harvard University, died in Sante Fe, New Mexico, on July 29, 1960, at the age of fifty-five.

In April of that year, Professor Kluckhohn delivered the Charles K. Colver Lectures at Brown University. As is the custom, the lectures were three in number, spread over several days. During his sojourn on our campus, the charm and brilliance of his personality, and the vast learning which he carried so lightly, endeared him to all. It was a time, too, when former students, now on the Brown faculty, delighted to recall not only their professional debt to him but also the countless little things which he had characteristically troubled to do for them over the years.

Professor Kluckhohn's lectures made a deep impression on the audience, for it was clear that here was a man who had a profound understanding of the ancient Greeks and yet might just as easily have lectured on the anthropological background of another civilization, as indeed his entire life bore witness.

C. A. ROBINSON, JR.
