Summary

In the 1960s women were beginning to make major strides in the field of archaeology. It is also during this time that informal mentoring relationships began between women active in the field and young women interested in pursuing their interests in archaeology. One such example is the role of Bertha Dutton with the Girl Scouts during the early 1960s. Working out of Camp Elsa Seligman, Girl Scouts conducted survey and excavation within Sandoval County. Their field notes, archaeological field collections and personal reflections document the important role of women mentorship in Southwestern Archaeological research while also providing important archaeological data from sites within the Jemez Springs area.
