My Bio Lawrence G. Desmond received his PhD in anthropology and archaeology from the University of Colorado, Boulder; his MA in anthropology from the Universidad de las Americas in Cholula, Mexico, and carried-out archaeological research in Mexico and Guatemala for more than 40 years. He taught at the University of Minnesota and San Francisco State University. His books, "A Dream of Maya" and "Yucatán through her eyes," are about the photography and studies of the ancient Maya by Alice and Augustus Le Plongeon who worked in Yucatán in the 1870s. His photographs of the people, architecture, and landscape of Mexico and Guatemala are archived at Harvard University's Peabody Museum, and photographs of the Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project (MMARP) are at the Getty Research Institute. Desmond is a senior research fellow in archaeology with the MMARP at Harvard University, and a research associate with the Department of Anthropology at the California Academy of Sciences.
