The remains of pueblo architecture are found scattered over thousands of square miles of the arid region of the southwestern plateaus. This vast area includes the drainage of the Rio Pecos on the east and that of the Colorado on the west, and extends from central Utah on the north beyond the limits of the United States southward, in which direction its
.boundaries are still undefined.
Seventeen years have elapsed since I was in the territory in which the events in the early history of the Rio
Grande Pueblos transpired, and twenty-nine years since I first entered the field of research among those
Pueblos under the auspices of the Archæological Institute of America. I am now called upon by the Institute to
do for the Indians of the Rio Grande villages what I did nearly two decades ago for the Zuñi tribe, namely, to
record their documentary history.
January 2012 saw the completion of the U.S. Army’s Chemical Materials
Agency’s (CMA’s) task to destroy 90 percent of the nation’s stockpile of chemical
weapons. CMA completed destruction of the chemical agents and associated munitions
stored at six of eight continental U.S. storage facilities as well as chemical weapons
deployed overseas, which were transported to Johnston Atoll, southwest of Hawaii, and
demilitarized there. The remaining 10 percent of the nation’s chemical weapons stockpile
is stored at two remaining continental U.S.
The Committee to Review Assembled Chemical
Weapons Alternatives Program Detonation Technologies
was appointed by the National Research Council
(NRC) in response to a request by the U.S. Army’s
Program Manager for Assembled Chemical Weapons
Three types of detonation technologies available
from technology vendors and the Army’s explosive
destruction system (EDS), collectively known as
explosive destruction technologies (EDTs), are being
considered for use at the Blue Grass Army Depot in
Richmond, Kentucky, and the Pueblo Chemical Depot
in Pueblo, Colorado....

About the close of May, 1895, I was invited to make a collection of objects for the National Museum,
illustrating the archeology of the Southwest, especially that phase of pueblo life pertaining to the so-called
cliff houses. I was specially urged to make as large a collection as possible, and the choice of locality was
generously left to my discretion.
Leaving Washington on the 25th of May, I obtained a collection and returned with it to that city on the 15th of
September, having spent three months in the field.
