Brief descriptionEdit

This brief description is released under the CC0 copyright waiver.

Suzanna W. Miles (1922–1966) was an anthropologist, archeologist and historian, specializing in the history of the Maya peoples. She is best known for her 1957 work, The Sixteenth-Century Pokom Maya. She had planned a translation of Bartolomé de las Casas' titanic Historia de las Indias, but this was never completed. Miles received her doctorate from Radcliffe College, her master's degree from the University of Chicago, and her undergraduate education from Shimer College and Beloit College. In the 1960s, Miles taught at Guatemala's Universidad de San Carlos, becoming the first woman anthropologist to reach the top professorial rank. (from Shimer College Wiki)
