Ian Graham was Founding Director of the Corpus of Maya Hieroglyphic Inscriptions Program at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University.
The Corpus will be a lasting contribution to the study of the Maya
and will save much of the cultural heritage of Mesoamerica from
sure obliteration. We owe a debt of gratitude to the authors.
Ian Graham has done more than any other person to save the fragile written record of the ancient Maya from destruction by looters, harsh weather and acid rain… All Mayanists agree on the importance of Graham’s work.
