After almost 30 years, the photos I took of scholars who participated in the ground-breaking annual symposia sponsored by the Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project (MMARP) are now available in my book: Scholars in Dark Glasses. Photos of MMARP Symposia 1982 to 1994.

The photos are documentary in style, and are of the archaeologists, anthropologists, ethnographers, historians of religions, art historians, historians, archaeo-astronomers, and many others from Mexico, the US, Japan, UK, and Europe who contributed to the development of a new direction in the study of the life and religious practices of the Aztecs, Maya, and other ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica.

Photos selected for the book are from the Lawrence Gustave Desmond Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project Photographs collection archived by the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles (GRI Special Collections accession number 2014.R.16).

On completion of my biography of Alice Dixon Le Plongeon, Yucatán through her eyes (2009), it seemed appropriate to donate my 30 years of Le Plongeon research materials to the library of the Getty Research Institute (GRI) in Los Angeles. My papers, by and about Alice Dixon Le Plongeon (1851-1910) and Augustus Le Plongeon (1826-1908), and the history of archaeology, add to and complement the GRI’s already extensive Le Plongeon research collection of 19th century archaeological and ethnographic photos, unpublished manuscripts, notes, Alice’s diary, correspondence, and other papers accessioned around the year 2000.
