Journal History

The Arizona Anthropologist is the most recent in a long line of student and student-faculty publications dating back to Emil W. Haury’s newsletter the Atlatl in 1944. Over the years the chatty, informal newsletter designed to keep in touch with present and former students evolved into a venue for research articles and emerging scholarship. After a hiatus in the 1970s the journal was reborn in 1980 as a purely scholarly journal. In the early 1990s the journal changed its name and became the Arizona Anthropologist we know today.
