A Collection of Writings in Memoriam Sylvanus Griswold Morley—1883–1948

This collection of vignettes written by colleagues, friends, and family of Sylvanus Morley provides an intimate look at a man who devoted his life to the study and understanding of the ancient Maya. In personal reminiscences of his childhood in Buena Vista, Colorado, on to Berkeley, to Santa Fe, and his archaeological adventures in the jungles of Mexico and Guatemala, his multitude of friends paint a portrait of a man who lived his life to the fullest.
