Trowelblazers - Marge Lambert

Marge Lambert was the first woman curator of archaeology in the United States - and has become a Santa Fe Living Treasure, along with her husband Jack, who started his working life as a cowboy.
Between 1932 and 1936, Marge began her archaeological career in New Mexico, digging at a variety of sites. Several of these were substantial pueblo villages like Kuaua Pueblo, which she dug with Edgar Lee Hewitt. In 1937, she became curator of archaeology at the Museum of New Mexico, and her work throughout her career was important in including American Indians of the South West and Hispanic people in the history, archaeology and anthropology of the region.
