The Walk to
Paradise Garden

The New York Times, Friday, Jan. 17, 2003:

Mr. and Mrs. Braidwood


Robert J. Braidwood, a University of Chicago archaeologist who uncovered evidence of the beginnings of agriculture and the subsequent rise of civilization in the Middle East, died on Wednesday [Jan. 15, 2003] in Chicago. He was 95.

From close to the beginning of his career, Dr. Braidwood worked in partnership with his wife, Linda S. Braidwood, also an archaeologist. She died several hours later on Wednesday in the same hospital. She was 93. The couple lived in LaPorte, Ind.

  1. That ‘Paradise Garden’ photo reminds me of a great movie called ‘My Neighbor Totoro.’

  2. You have interesting things to say but the design of the site with so much blue and black and columns of text is confusing and doesn’t do it justice at all. Since you like to lay things out in a pretty complex manner, you would show it off more with a different design that hides the non-blog stuff a bit better or at least makes it fade into the background and not compete with what you have to say.

  3. Thanks for the site-design comment. I tried to clean it up a bit.
