Marie Wormington. This project was timely because Bunzel, Ellis, Kent, Keur, Leighton, and Marriott have since passed away. Our graduate research assistant, Jennifer Fox, interviewed these women in 1985 and 1986 using a detailed yet open-ended interview schedule that Barbara and I constructed. Some of the interviews required two consecutive days because of the problems of format and recall. On the first day Jenny conducted a semistructured audio interview in the form of a conversation. Although there was a prearranged ordering to the questions, Jenny was instructed to let the women's responses determine the order of the discussion and the topics to some extent, as well as the amount of time spent in each area.

The resulting data from the interviews and archival sources is primarily qualitative and sometimes impressionistic but of a quality and richness not duplicated by other methodologies. The public conference, held in Tucson, Arizona, in March 1986, and the exhibit were designed to honor these key women and the countless others who worked in the Southwest. The goal was to document the range and depth of their contributions, to demonstrate that many women anthropologists were or are scholars who cannot be ignored.

Why do we know so little about them? Why, when we tell people how many women have worked in the Greater Southwest, are we met with looks of disbelief? Why are women not in our history of anthropology books? Why are they not cited in theoretical discussions? Why, with the exception of Benedict and Mead, are women anthropologists hidden, seen only in the shadow of men or at the margins of the field? Is anthropology really a good discipline for women? Are women hidden because women's contributions had to be made invisible, shown to be handmaidenly or less important than those of male theoreticians, for anthropology to be accepted as a science?
