The 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (2013)


Session 19. From Paleoamericans to Recent Americans: A Celebration of Richard L. Jantz’s Contributions to Biological Anthropology. Invited Poster Symposium. Chair: Steve Ousley and Kate Spradley

Thursday Afternoon, 301E Add to calendar

Richard Jantz has been a teacher, mentor, and colleague at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, for over 40 years, and has recently retired. His numerous contributions to understanding human variation (anthropometric, dermatoglyphic, and osteometric) have greatly impacted many facets of biological anthropology. He also oversaw the establishment and preservation of databases including skeletal observations from modern Americans (the Forensic Data Bank), anthropometrics from Native Americans (from Franz Boas), and worldwide dermatoglyphic observations (from Heinz Brehme), which have and will continue to benefit many anthropologists. Most recently he was a litigant in the Kennewick Man case, highlighting his contributions to understanding the earliest Americans. This symposium reflects Richard Jantz’s depth and breadth of contributions.
