BANDELIER, Adolph Francis Alphonse, archaeologist, born in Bern, Switzerland, 6 August 1840. His early education was very slight, and he never attended school after his eighth year. After settling in the United States, he became interested in several kinds of business, but without much success. His attention was then turned to archaeological pursuits, and his principal work has been performed under the direction of the Archaeological Institute of America. From 1880 to 1885 he was engaged in examining the ruins of the ancient Pueblos, and in studying the sedentary Indians of New Mexico. He visited Central America in 1881, and for a time during 1883-'84 was in northern Mexico and Arizona. His papers and reports of progress have been published in the " Proceedings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science," and among the "Papers of the Archaeological Institute of America." He is the author of "Art of War and Mode of Warfare" (Boston, 1877); "Tenure of Lands, and Inheritances of Ancient Mexicans " (1878); "Social Organization and Government of Ancient Mexicans " (1878); and "An Archaeological Tour into Mexico" (1880).
