Heinrich Lowie, Professor of Anthropology, UC Berkeley
"Lowie was a scientist and scholar in the European tradition.
He was respectful of learning itself, imbued with its dignity, but
unexpectant of world rewards for devoting himself to it. The respect
and affection Lowie inspired in his students and colleagues are the
finest tribute a man might wish."
Winslow Gifford, Professor of Anthropology and Director of
the Museum of Anthropology, UC Berkeley
"Professor Gifford was interested in every aspect of anthropology.
Treatises in ethnology, social organization, archaeology and culture
history, folklore, religion, physical anthropology, material culture,
and museum collections flowed from his pen."
Professor of Anthropology, UC Berkeley
"Professor Kroeber's range of interest and competence in nearly
every one of the major fields of anthropology made him the broadest
student of the larger discipline, a position held in the past by a
notable few, such as Edward B. Tylor and Franz Boas."
Doney McCown, Professor of Anthropology and Associate Dean
of the College of Letters and Science, UC Berkeley
"McCown's analysis was a major step forward in the analysis of
fossil human remains and threw enduring light on the problem of the
relationship between Neanderthal and modern man; it still stands as
one of the major contributions of [the twentieth] century to a knowledge
of human evolution."
Fleming Heizer, Professor of Anthropology, UC Berkeley
"The combination of basic intellect, curiosity, and broad training
produced one of American's last 'general' anthropologists who could
talk and write knowledgeably in areas of the discipline far transcending
his primary passion, archaeology."
G. Mandelbaum, Professor of Anthropology, UC Berkeley
"Although Mandelbaum's professional concerns embraced many other
and topics, India remained his greatest love, and it is for his
contributions to Indian studies that he is particularly well known."
