Dwight P. Lanmon is a Research Associate at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, as well as the School for Advanced Research. Prior to his retirement and relocation to Santa Fe, he served as CEO and Director of the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum near Wilmington, Delaware. He was earlier the Director and Curator of European Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, where he published several books and articles on glass history. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. He and his wife, Lorraine, an art historian, have been collectors and students of Pueblo pottery for more than 30 years. He has co-authored with Francis H. Harlow three comprehensive books: The Pottery of Zia Pueblo (SAR Press, 2003), The Pottery of Zuni Pueblo (MNM Press, 2008), and with Duane Anderson, The Pottery of Santa Ana Pueblo (MNM Press, 2005). He also co-authored with his wife the book Josephine Foard and the Glazed Pottery of Laguna Pueblo (UNM Press, 2007). He and Harlow are presently working on another comprehensive book, The Pottery of Acoma Pueblo (MNM Press, probably 2012), which will illustrate and discuss examples of pottery made there between about 1200 and the present and identify over 800 potters working from the mid 1800s and 1900s. The collections of the Indian Arts Research Center and the Catherine McElvain Library of the School for Advanced Research are central to the research and publication.
