Anthro faculty pay visit to colleague Barbara Luedtke camping on Calf Island summer of 1976
'Professor Luedtke was doing archaeological excavations on Native American occupations and colleagues would visit her there. She was camping on the island that summer. She studied Native pre-contact remains on many other islands too, especially Long, Bumpkin, and Thompson Islands and was the expert on the archaeology and pre history of this part of Boston. After she died of breast cancer at age 51 in 2000, the department sponsored a memorial symposium on her work with presentations by her students and colleagues. It took place on Thompson Island, in her memory, and we all traveled by boat.
