Lewis Larsen was one of the pioneers of modern North American archaeology. Along with Joseph Caldwell and Arthur Kelly, he supervised the archaeological studies at Etowah Mounds National Landmark during the mid-1950s. He then went on to a highly productive career as a professor and expert on the Mississippian Culture.
It would be very nice if this collection could be preserved intact.
Is it possible to raise money to buy it? Then Digitize it for all? Im in!
Many of his books probably are protected by copyright, so they would not be able to be shared. Let’s see what is offered when the catalog becomes available.
