As a Research Associate of the Maxwell Museum, Dr. Hayward Franklin has been making important contributions to scholarship on the ceramic collections in the Archaeology Division since 2006. Over his career, Dr. Franklin has worked with many archaeological projects in Arizona and New Mexico. His Ph.D. dissertation (University of Arizona) involved the excavation and analysis of a major Hohokam-Salado site in the San Pedro Valley. He then served as a NPS Ranger at Mesa Verde Park. Between 1974 and 1980 he directed the ceramics lab at Salmon Ruin, a large Chaco culture pueblo near Bloomfield, NM. Concurrently, he was Assistant Professor at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. After a year as a student at Albuquerque T-VI in 1980, he was hired as an instructor in Computer Programming, and remained on the faculty until his retirement from CNM in 2005. In a separate but "parallel" career, Hayward analyzed and wrote about ceramics for a number of major contract projects, most of them connected with OCA at the University of New Mexico. He was ceramic analyst on projects at Cuchillo Wash, Valencia Pueblo, and numerous smaller projects. Together with Carol Condie he completed analysis of l 700's ceramics from Los Ranchos Plaza, in Albuquerque.
