Historical Note

In 1964, Warren L. d'Azevedo (1920-2012) led an initiative to reorganize the Great Basin Anthropological Conference. Warren had been brought to the University of Nevada in 1963 to found a four field Anthropology Department. The conference reorganization and name change reflected his vision of a holistic Great Basin anthropology, acknowledging the distinct anthropology to an understanding of all the peoples and cultures of the region, both past and present. He encouraged colleagues and students to pursue professional and ethically responsible research in the four fields. His influence on colleagues, students, Native collaborators, and friends was profound, enriching their lives in many different ways over five decades. In this symposium, students, colleagues, and Native collaborators honor Warren's memory as friend, mentor, teacher, and author, and discuss the many positive impacts he had on their personal and professional lives in the Great Basin and far beyond.
