KENNETH MILTON CHAPMAN; A Life Dedicated to Indian Arts and Artists

Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. 7 x 10, 370 pgs, index, bibliography, b&w historical photos. The accomplishments of Kenneth Milton Chapman (1875-1968)--a leading force in the revitalization of Pueblo pottery in the 1920s--are as varied as they are significant. Chapman was instrumental in the establishment of the Museum of New Mexico, the School of American Research, and the Laboratory of Anthropology in Santa Fe. He was widely recognized for his knowledge of Pueblo pottery design elements and was the University of New Mexico's first professor of Indian arts. With a special focus on his professional development as artist and archaeologist, this biography is the first to track Chapman's life from his midwestern upbringing through his nearly seventy years in New Mexico.
