Doc Holliday Goes to Tombstone

Author(s): Jesse Ballenger

Year: 2018


In 2002 Vance won the role of Executive Director for the Argonaut Archaeological Research Fund (AARF) at the University of Arizona. The program provided immediate funding for a number of graduate students working on the archaeology and Quaternary geology of the Desert Southwest. A renewed investigation of the upper San Pedro Basin was among those projects. Vance endured every possible graduate student misstep, some of which are reviewed here, to assemble new information about long-term and hotly debated topics such as mammoth hunting, late Pleistocene paleoecology and extinctions, and even the question ET impacts. These new contributions were made under the shadow of his close friend and colleague, C. Vance Haynes, Jr. The combined efforts of "both Vances" is a case study in the scientific value and intrigue embodied by the Fryxell Award for Interdisciplinary Research.
