David Starbuck (Anthropology) hosted the annual meeting of the New England Chapters of the Society for Industrial Archeology on March 1 in Boyd Hall. The conference featured multiple presentations on the subject of early industry in New Hampshire.  He also concluded his exhibit on the early cartoon character, “Foxy Grandpa,” which had been featured on the first floor of Lamson Library since late January. “Foxy” was one of the most unique subjects of comic book art between 1900 and ca. 1920.  David also submitted to the New York State Museum his final archaeological report on past excavations at the Lake George Battlefield Park (New York) as a prelude to directing a new series of excavations in the Park that will commence this coming summer.  David is editor of The New Hampshire Archeologist, and in March he published Volume 52, devoted to Native American sites in New Hampshire.
