Dennis J. Stanford
May 13, 1943 (age 75)
Cherokee, Iowa, United States


Dennis J. Stanford (born 13 May 1943 in Cherokee, Iowa,[1] dead 25 April 2019[2]) was an archaeologist and Director of the Paleoindian/Paleoecology Program at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution.[3]

Along with Prof. Bruce Bradley, Stanford was known for advocating the Solutrean hypothesis, which contends that stone tool technology of the Solutrean culture in prehistoric Europe may have influenced the development of the later Clovis tool-making culture in the Americas by way of an earlier trans-atlantic European migration to North America during the Last Glacial Maximum. In 2012, they published details concerning their hypothesis in Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America's Clovis Culture.

A great and courageous archaeologist. IIRC I cited  one of his (and Bruce Bradley's) papers in a thread.
