John W. Sanders Internship Fund

The internship fund we began for Fort Lewis College archaeology students doing projects and research at the Center of Southwest Studies has been renamed the John W. Sanders Internship and Education Fund in honor of our recently departed friend, scholar, humorist, intrepid hiker, and chapter founder, John Sanders. If you wish to make a charitable tax-deductible donation to this worthy endeavor, please make your check out to SJBAS, indicate it is for this Fund, and mail it to: SJBAS, Attn: Randy Graham, PO Box 3153, Durango, CO 81302. Shelby Tisdale, director of the Center of Southwest Studies, will ensure that the funds go to the students; we only ask that once a student has completed a project, he or she make a brief presentation at one of our monthly meetings. For more information, contact Randy at
