Saga of EWH


Wright, Barton, Journal of the Southwest


To the best of my recollection these sketches are from notes that I took during a seminar on archaeological terminology sometime in the 1950's. Unfortunately all of the other individuals in the group with whom I could check this information are now deceased. It consisted of Emil Haury, Ned Danson, Terah Smiley, Charles DiPeso, Alan Olson, Rex Christiansen, and myself. I believe that all of the information came directly from Dr. Haury and I took it down as he spoke.

Editor's note: Carol Gifford, who worked for many years with Emil Haury until his death in 1992, recalls that the three pages of sketches were redrawn by Barton Wright at the request of Frances Slutes, Haury's secretary, in 1952, so that Haury could have a personal copy.
