Dr. William S. Webb was a professor of Physics. His lifelong interest in Kentucky's cultural history led him to conduct the first county-by-county archaeological survey of Kentucky during the 1920s, and to establish the Department of Anthropology at the University of Kentucky in 1927. The W.S. Webb Museum of Anthropology was founded in 1931 as a nonprofit, permanent, educational institution operated for the benefit of students, faculty, and staff of the University of Kentucky and, more generally, for the citizens of the Commonwealth. The Museum provides secure storage and curation of ethnographic and archaeological materials, particularly for artifacts collected during the numerous surveys and excavations conducted by professional archaeologists throughout Kentucky.
