Tatiana Proskouriakoff Centennial 2

charsolomon_tproskouriakoff1January 23, 2009 will mark 100 years since the birth of the great Mayanist Tatiana Proskouriakoff (1909-1985), best known for her discovery of the extensive historical content in Maya art and inscriptions. The upcoming anniversary will be a excellent time to reflect on Tania’s remarkable career and her contributions to Mesoamerican research.


  1. David,
    What a nice post on Tania. I’ll be toasting her with a glass of bubbly on the 23rd! I’ve heard, too, that Cal State Un (LA) is hosting a conference in May as an homage to Tania. Thought you’d want to know.
    With much happiness hope from the inauguration!
