OAS | March 2023

Office of Archaeological Studies

We are sad to announce the passing of Mollie Toll, beloved ethnobotanist and educator at the Office of Archaeological studies. Mollie’s impact is noted in a wonderful article that was published in a Santa Fe New Mexican article last week. If you would like to make a donation to support archaeological education in her honor, click this link.

We are also deeply saddened by this news of Eric’s removal as director of the Office of Archaeological Studies. Eric has been a wonderful partner in securing vital financial support for OAS education and research, a popular presenter for our Conversations with the Curator online series, and a beloved leader of our Circles Explorers trips to Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument and the Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness.

Please know that the Foundation will continue to work with OAS to raise private funds for education and research and will support OAS staff and Friends of Archaeology to the best of our ability.

OAS continues to fundraise for its education programs and research activities. To make a donation, please contact Lauren Paige at 505.982.2282, or lauren@museumfoundation.org.
