NZ Founding Father of British Anthropology

Sir Raymond Firth, one of the world’s most prominent anthropologists, emeritus professor at London University, Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit, and recipient of first Leverhulme medal (given to scholars of exceptional distinction) has died aged 100. According to to The Guardian he was the “founding father of British anthropology whose perspective was shaped by his experience of New Zealand’s expropriated Maoris … at the time of his death, Firth was, without doubt, the most distinguished living British anthropologist.”
