In Appreciation Of Marley Brown

Author(s): Stephen Mrozowski

Year: 2015


I first met Marley Brown in 1973 when he was both a PhD candidate at Brown University and an Assistant Professor – a dual status that reflected his role in the early development of Historical Archaeology. As both a student of the young field and one of its early leaders, Marley had a unique place in the growth of Historical Archaeology in New England. Marley would go on to be an inspiration, mentor, critic, collaborator and friend. Anyone who has worked with Marley knows that he could be all of these things within the same moment. Sometimes warm, sometimes stinging, always generous, Marley has always been among the best anthropologists in the field with a keen appreciation for the importance of theory. My paper will present a personal reflection and appreciation of Marley and the critical role he has played in shaping a career.
