When Leslie Spier launched the Southwestern Journal of Anthropology at the beginning of 1945—still several months before the end of World War II—he printed not a word of introduction or explanation. The Journal, which has now reached the respectable milestone of six decades, simply began (vol . 1, no. 1). On December 15, 1944, an announcement had been made in the Southwestern Journal ’s predecessor, New Mexico Anthropologist, by Donald D. Brand, its first and only Editor—and Head of the University of New Mexico Department of Anthropology. To this day the Journal of Anthropological Research continues to fulfill much the same mission as was set forth at the end of 1944. Brand stated "With this issue the New Mexico Anthropologist terminates its career. Conceived originally as a periodical for and by the students of the University of New Mexico, outside interest in it soon demanded expansion to include articles of professional caliber and wider scope. Thus it moved from a concern with local affairs, intended to meet a local audience, to a position of offering more serious discussion, but still largely confined to the Southwest and the Latin-American lands to the south. We believe that it has served this function usefully but that it may now be replaced by a journal of wider interest". Spier was an inveterate editor of journals and publication series. As he moved from institution to institution, he created outlets for the publication of serious, for fields of anthropological research . He also edited the American Anthropologist and was President of the American Anthropological Association. The international, multidisciplinary vocation of SWJA was firmly established with its very first issue and has continued ever since, through the editorships of Harry Basehart (first with Stanley Newman and later alone), James Spuhler, Philip Bock and Lawrence Guy Straus. the fundamentally global scope of the publication was ultimately emphasized with the change of name to Journal of Anthropological Research by Basehart in 1973.
