In Memoriam: Mary Lou Larson (1954-2022)

The Rocky Mountain Anthropological Association and the archaeological community throughout the region has lost a valued friend and colleague with the passing of eminent archaeologist Mary Lou Larson [Mary Larson Obituary (1954 - 2022) - Casper Star Tribune]. Her service on the RMAA Board of Directors was but a tiny fraction of her immense contributions to our professional community. We extend our sincere condolences to her husband Marcel Kornfeld and other family members, as she lives in our fond memories.


The International Mountain Conference will take place on Sept. 11-15, 2022 in Innsbruck, Austria. Details about the conference, including registration and abstract submission, can be found at https://www.imc2022.info/
