Summary
In any time, in any place, Edgar Lee Hewett would have stood out from the crowd. But in Santa Fe in the early part of this century, it took some doing. He did not shy from controversy; indeed, he seems at times to have courted it. Founder of the School of American Research and the Museum of New Mexico, Hewett was a colorful character, and now stands as the centerpiece for this insider's biography. Touching on little-known aspects of Santa Fe's history during the years 1900-1950, Mrs. Chauvenet has succeeded in capturing the true flavor of Hewett and a prominent Southwestern circle that included archaeologists, artists, politicians, and scientists in one of the most colorful eras of an always-colorful town -- Book jacket
