    Drew Days...a shining light on the NMAAHC scholarly advisory committee -- funny and wry and brilliant. Someone who's personal kindness extended as far and wide as his rigor and sense of justice. I can remember him taking time to always check in and look...  more

    When I reached Comayagua in l967 the Days were already there and knew the townspeople. I remember going over to their house many times when I got lonely or needed help. I remember one day I was admiring a painting they had on the wall and I commented...  more
