KENNETH CHAPMAN’S SANTA FE: ARTISTS AND ARCHAEOLOGISTS, 1907-1931: THE MEMOIRS OF KENNETH CHAPMAN
by Kenneth Milton Chapman and Marit K. Munson. School for Advanced Research Press
“Searching for better health, Chapman left the damp Eastern seaboard for New Mexico at age 25 in 1899. In then-thriving Las Vegas, NM, he had the luck to be employed by Edgar Lee Hewett, president of the university there and a renowned anthropologist, archaeologist and preservationist. Chapman soon moved to Santa Fe, where he spent most of his long life at the Museum of New Mexico and the Laboratory of anthropology. In his 60s he began to write an authobiography, producing a mammoth manuscript that was never published. Munson’s editing provides an excellent sense of Chapman’s entire life while focusing on those active years, age 32-57, during which Chapman’s antipahy for his former mentor and friend, the more famous Hewett, turns his text into a hostile diatribe about Hewett’s life and professional standards, which he deemed quite low. Enjoyable reading about the era in which Santa Fe decided to become “the city different.” – W. David Laird
WILLARD CLARK: PRINTER AND PRINTMAKER
by David Farmer. Museum of New Mexico Press
“On his way to California, Clark hit Santa Fe in 1928 (remember what happened in 1919!) and decided to stay. He weathered the Depression years as a commercial printer, but one with the artistic skills that allowed him to create handsome, multi-color illustrations for menus, sales brochures, and the like. World War II changed that: he went to work for Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he stayed until he retired 40 years later. He then picked up his wood-block cutting tools, bought other printing presses and began a second career as printer and printmaker. Farmer give us a biography of both of those “printerly” years, supplying dozens of color and black-and-white illustrations of Clark’s style, which was perfectly suited to Santa Fre at that time, which was becoming ‘the city different.’ Handsome book, well-designed and beautifully printed.”- W. David Laird
