The College of San Fernando de Mexico was a Roman Catholic missionary college, or seminary (Colegio Apostolico) founded in Mexico City by the Order of Friars Minor on October 15, 1734. The institution was established to provide specific training for priests who were to labor among the indigenous populations in New Spain.
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.
Foster's stamp to front wrapper, wrapper edges chipped with tears, tear at front hinge extending more than half else a good to very good copy.
