The Campbell House is honored to welcome desert archaeologist, teacher, and researcher Joan Schneider, who has spent much of the last 20 years following and studying the legacy and work of the Campbells.

Joan S. Schneider received both her MS and PhD degrees in Anthropology from UC Riverside. Her research interests include the reasons why prehistoric peoples (particularly women) chose certain stones for tools and vessels and how the materials chosen related to the tasks performed or to the uses of the artifacts. She has published articles in regional, national, and international professional publications. Schneider has worked for over 30 years in arid regions of the world, including the Colorado, Mojave, Sonoran, Negev, and more recently, the Gobi.
She worked closely with Claude N. Warren, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, UNLV, in Joshua Tree National Park on a number of projects. Her own experience with Elizabeth Campbell started in 1989 when she, Warren, and Gary Garrett (volunteer ranger) attempted to relocate sites from which the Campbell's had recovered cremation remains; this was part of a "repatriation" project in compliance with the new NAGPRA law. Warren and Schneider developed and carried out, over a two-year period, a sample archaeological survey within Joshua Tree, the results of which were the first systematic look at the archaeology of the entire Park. Schneider and Warren also conducted other studies in JTNP: At Cottonwood, near Hidden Valley Campground, and at Keys Ranch. At the latter, they taught two summer field schools in 1991 and 1992.
Schneider directed a study at the Oasis of Mara in preparation for new NPS construction. As part of this study, she developed a National Register of Historic Places nomination of the Oasis; one part of the eligibility assessment for NR was that the Oasis was important in the history of the region in that newcomers to the Twentynine Palms (including the Campbell's) camped at the Oasis because of the availability of water there. Over the years, Schneider assisted Warren in several studies at Lake Mojave, where the Campbell's conducted their very significant fieldwork.
Over the last 50 years, Claude Warren has researched the life, times, and work of Elizabeth Campbell. Schneider helped him organize his research notes, his many Campbell anecdotes, and his academic papers about Elizabeth Campbell. After three years of writing, organizing, and editing, the story of her life and the influences that made her the person she was will soon be available: The Purple Hummingbird: A Biography of Elizabeth Warder Crozer Campbell. The book will be published by the University of Utah Press in December.
