Into International Waters

Author(s): Carole Crumley

Year: 2016


The remarkable career of Vernon Scarborough includes a long, lesser-known association with international programs of significance to archaeology and anthropology. Drawing on the meticulous investigation of Maya water management strategies, Vern has taken that interest to the global level, working in South Asia, Sri Lanka, Greece, Bali, and the American Southwest. His has been an important and persistent voice in the global change community for a quarter century, leading an enormous project on the history of water for UNESCO and as an early member of the Integrated History and Future of People on Earth (IHOPE). His far-ranging intelligence, immense curiosity, and warm personality have gone far in convincing the global change community of the utility of the past for the future.
