The Department of Anthropology at the University of New Mexico (UNM) was founded in 1927 by two remarkable institution builders, Edgar Lee Hewett and James Fulton Zimmerman. Hewett, then age sixty-two, had built several major cultural institutions in New Mexico and California beginning in 1906. Zimmerman, age forty, had been acting president of UNM for three months. The founding of the UNM department must be understood in relation to Hewett’s history as scholar-entrepreneur. Both Hewett and Zimmerman played very different roles vis-à-vis the Laboratory of Anthropology, founded in Santa Fe, also in 1927. From 1942 until his death in 1944, Zimmerman served part-time as unpaid director of the Laboratory, while continuing as president of UNM, and was involved in the joint UNM/Laboratory development of the Journal of Southwestern Anthropology, the antecedent of the Journal of Anthropological Research.
