AAA presidents red-linked

In my brief research for the previous post, I happened upon the Wikipedia page for the American Anthropological Association and its list of presidents, and was shocked to see the number and importance of individuals who were ‘red-linked’ (i.e. had no page of their own).  Irving Rouse basically built Caribbean archaeology.   There’s a page for the Goldschmidt Thesis but not for Walter freakin’ Goldschmidt himself?  I bet that Francis Hsu was the first Asian American to chair an American academic department.   Yolanda Moses has been president of basically … everything.     So step up, people!  Somebody’s got to be running a history of anthropology course where they can get their students to write up basic biographies.
