AAA Mourns the Loss of Dr. Anthony Wallace


The AAA mourns the loss of Dr. Anthony Wallace (president in 1972). Once called the “Quiet Anthropologist” in a Philadelphia Inquirer article, Dr. Wallace taught at the University of Pennsylvania upon graduating from there with a Ph.D. in Anthropology. A specialist in Native American cultures, especially the Iroquois, his research expressed an interest in the intersection of cultural anthropology and psychology. He is famous for the theory of revitalization movements. After retiring, he continued to write about the Native American Indians and was a good friend to the Tuscarora, the subject of his last published book, Tuscarora A History in 2012.
