Biographical Note:
Lina Lee Brock (1945-1991) was an anthropologist whose research focused on the Tuareg people of Niger. She earned her BA in Philosophy from Reed College (1967) and her MA (1974) and PhD (1983) in Anthropology from Columbia University. She was a professor of Anthropology at Sarah Lawrence College from 1981 until her death.

From 1973-1976 she conducted field research in Niger on the effects of economic change and the drought of 1968-1974 on patron-client relationships in Tuareg society. Her field work included historical research in local and national archives, as well as study of oral tradition, social structure, deomographics, and economic activities. In the late 1980's she returned to Niger to conduct additional research on Tuareg literature, oral history, and the Tamajeq language.

Brock died of pancreatic cancer in 1991.
