Winter

Although the occasional anthropologist made his way through the University of Virginia (Eric Wolf wrote his masterpiece Sons of the Shaking Earth while here) the first serious anthropologist to plant himself in the Lawn of Thomas Jefferson’s University was Edward H. Winter. Born in 1923, Winter graduated from Harvard in 1944.  He was a LT(J.g) in the Navy from 1944-1946, serving in the Pacific.

Perdue, Jr.

I came to the academic study of folklore by a somewhat peculiar route. My mother was a traditional ballad singer and I grew up singing her songs, learning others, having my head filled and my behavior guided by traditional stories, proverbs, riddles, superstitions, and other forms of folklore. Years later after service in the Army Security Agency during the Korean War, and marriage to Nan, I attended the University of California, Berkeley, and majored in geology.

Martin-Perdue

My concerns with issues affecting women, social class and power differences, history and the politics of culture, are themselves reflections of my own personal history and experiences. As the first woman in my family to graduate from college, I am obliged to a score of aunts and female relatives on both sides for their dreams and insistent encouragement. However, the primary source of my ethnographic and historical imagination was my paternal grandmother (1857-1953), who grew up on the northern Texas frontier amidst conflicts with both Comanches and the Confederacy in the Civil War.

Hymes

My earliest interest in anthropology was focussed on linguistics, but three years in Puerto Rico added a fascination with how anthropologists study the ways different people work out ways of being human, raising children, living in families, celebrating seasonal rituals. Graduate work in anthropology at Indiana and later at UCLA made it possible to keep all these interests active.

Turner

I am an anthropologist engaged in the study of ritual, religion and consciousness. I have been researching the field of symbol and ritual for 58 years, formerly in collaboration with Victor Turner. My theoretical interests have developed from Turner's "anthropology of experience," a field that has been spreading in anthropology to narratology, humanistic anthropology, and the anthropology of consciousness.
