Charlotte Beck retired in December 2012. A member of the Hamilton faculty since 1985, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Auburn University and her master’s degree and Ph.D. from the University of Washington. Professor Beck’s work focuses on the earliest human occupation of the Great Basin (Paleoindian). Together with her husband, Leavenworth Professor of Anthropology Tom Jones, she established a field school in Nevada where Hamilton archaeology students spend their summers learning to apply research techniques such as surveying, excavation, mapping and systematic collection. The recipient of a National Science Foundation grant, Professor Beck has edited two books and published more than 40 scholarly articles. In 2001, she received the Lang Prize for Excellence in Teaching.
