The Southwest Journeys of Adolph F. Bandelier, Charles H. Lange, Elizabeth M. Lange, and Carroll L. Riley
Author(s): Richard Lange
The US Southwest has attracted numerous adventurers and researchers since the mid-19th Century, including the three individuals noted in the title. Although more than 60 years passed between their respective journeys, their approaches to understanding native Southwest cultures were remarkably similar. Their work melded data and insights from ethnology, anthropology, history and historical documents, and archaeology. The later researchers could not have known when they began their journeys that telling the story of the earlier researcher would become a shared project that consumed much of their professional lives. That process took more than twice as long as the original researcher was in the field in the Southwest. This paper reviews the enduring legacies of these scholars and the circumstances that surrounded their efforts.
