INTRODUCTION

The existence of the Anthropology Library as a branch of the General Library at Berkeley is attributable largely to the persuasive talents of John Rowe. He was primarily responsible for setting up a departmental reading room in May, 1953, and he later harried appropriate administrators until the separate branch was established on July 1, 1956. It is obvious that I owe a great deal to him, which explains in part why I accepted the proposal to compile a bibliography of his publications. Since he has a well-deserved reputation for precision and accuracy in his bibliographic citations, I entertained no illusions about measuring up to his standards. As the work progressed, I was able to continue only on the justification that a faulty tribute would be better than none.

Because this special issue was intended to be a surprise, I was unable to resolve difficulties by consulting him., The years 1940 through 1954 were available in slightly different format in his earlier bibliography published in the Boletin Bibliografica de Antropologia Americana, vol. XVII, parte segunda, 1954, pp. 265-273. Some more recent lists compiled by him for other purposes were made available to me without his knowledge. But any errors, omissions and eccentricities of arrangement are mine, not his.

John Rowe is well known for sharing with others his ideas and hypotheses and through the years has made available in a variety of ways other than formal publication his first formulations and tentative treatments of wide-ranging aspects of anthropology and archaeology, along with charts and diagrams to clear up confusion on specific technical matters encountered in his research. Many preliminary but significant working papers were mimeographed at the request of others. Also, in his grant applications and reports, intra-departmental circulars, communications to University administrators, letters to the editor, interviews, course descriptions, and seminar outlines and notes, is hidden much material which cannot be ignored in any total assessment of his contributions. Time and secrecy have not permitted the luxury of listing more than a very few influential items of this nature, and the mention of even these few may not meet with his approval. Generally, therefore, I have been guided by whatever evidence there was available to judge whether he would have listed a publication himself as part of his professional output.

I am grateful to Dorothy Menzel, Dorothy Koenig, and Harold Fisher for their aid, in locating and checking some of the more elusive items, and to Robert Van Kemper and Sylvia Forman for advice and encouragement.
