Biographical / Historical:
Samuel Kirkland Lothrop (1882-1965) was born in 1892. Upon his graduation from Harvard College, he joined A.V. Kidder's archaeological dig at Pecos (New Mexico), thus beginning a long and illustrious career at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. After earning a PhD in anthropology (Harvard), Lothrop was appointed Director of the Museum's Central American Expedition (1916-1917). Between 1922 and 1931, Lothrop conducted archaeological and ethnological studies for the Museum of the American Indian in New Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Central America. In 1940, Lothrop assumed the position of Assistant Curator (Middle America Archaeology) of the Peabody Museum and became Curator of the Department in 1943. He assumed the position of Curator for Andean Archeology from 1947 until his retirement in 1960
