Henry F. Dobyns

Henry F. Dobyns, a Tucson native son, has contributed distinguished publications to the fields of anthropology and history since 1948. Among the most widely recognized of his numerous works are more than 20 books and articles reporting research and action on rural development in Peru, several analyses of cultural change, and various studies of the Spanish colonial period. His work in demography has won him recognition for bringing to light the extent of Native American depopulation under colonial conditions. Dobyns holds a Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, and has received the Bronislaw Malinowski Award from the Society for Applied Anthroplogy and shared the Anisfield-Wolf Award from the Saturday Review for his writing.
