The Archdiocese of Guadalajara is a Roman Catholic archdiocese based in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The diocese was erected on July 13, 1548 and was elevated to Archdiocese on January 26, 1863. The Archdiocese of Guadalajara is the Metropolitan see of the suffragan dioceses of Aguascalientes, AutlÃ¡n, Ciudad GuzmÃ¡n, Colima, JesÃºs Maria del Nayar, San Juan de los Lagos and Tepic.
Eleanor Burnham Adams (1910-1996) began her career as a historian in 1934 in the Division of Historical Research of the Carnegie Institution, which was housed in the Peabody Museum at Harvard University. At Carnegie Adams began a lifelong collaboration with France Vinton Scholes, head of the Post-Columbian History Section. Within a few years Scholes and Adams began to publish their YucatÃ¡n studies, the product of what Lewis Hanke described as "the most sustained and important cooperative research project carried on by a United States institution in Latin America during the twentieth century. Adams took over as editor of the New Mexico Historical Review beginning with the July 1964 issue. She remained in this post until 1975. Over the course of her twenty-four years at UNM, Adams often had to fight off criticism from some members of the History Department who did not consider her their equal because of her nontraditional career path, particularly because she did not have an advanced degree. Adams's backers pointed to her stellar publishing record, which easily outdistanced that of all her detractors. Adams eventually won the fight, and UNM named her Research Professorâ€‘atâ€‘Large in 1974. Tulane University conferred upon her the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters on in 1984.
Adams' signature to title, spine age toned else a better than very good copy.
