Antonio de Otermin was the Spanish Governor of the northern New Spain province of Santa Fe de Nuevo Mexico, today the U.S. states of New Mexico and Arizona, from 1678 to 1682. Otermin was governor during the Pueblo Revolt, during which the religious leader Pope led the Pueblo people in a military ouster of the Spanish colonists. Pope's forces besieged Santa Fe, surrounding the city and cutting off its water supply. Otermin, barricaded in the Palace of the Governors, called for a general retreat, and on September 21 the Spanish settlers streamed out of the capital city headed for Ciudad Juarez, then called El Paso del Norte. In 1680, he, along with Fray Francisco de Ayeta founded La Mision de Corpus Christi de San Antonio de la Ysleta del Sur in Ysleta, Texas.

George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.
