Binford 1931-2011

Posted on April 12, 2011


This just came over the NMAC listserve

Lew Binford passed away on Monday at his home in Kirksville, Mo. He was 79 years old and leaves behind a legacy that will be hard to match in Anthropology.

Apparently wikipedia was quick on this too (posting his death quite early, less then 24hrs after) NOTE Wikepedia had his birth year as 1930 and 1931. Considering the message I received has his age as 79 I have gone with the 1931 birth year most others have chosen 1930( don’t always trust what’s on wikipedia)-

Lewis Roberts Binford, born November 21, 1931 to Joseph Lewis Binford
and Eoline (Roberts) Binford
in Norfolk, VA, died on Monday, April 11, 2011 at 6:10pm
