Eleanor Emlen Myers

An archaeological photographer for twenty-two years, Mrs. Myers came to this career after a previous twenty-year career as a teacher and consultant in child development. Married to an archaeologist, all her training and experience was gained on the job in the field where she used a blimp to help her first do an aerial survey of Crete' major sites, published as an atlas, and later to produce an extensive photo reference archive of many archaeological sites in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Jordan. She was a research fellow at Boston University's Department of Archaeology.
