    Bio / His Notes: 
    Edward Adamson Hoebel (1906-1993) was an anthropologist and educator who pioneered studies of the legal systems of pre-literate societies. From 1929 until 1948 Hoebel taught sociology and anthropology at New York University and he received his PhD in anthropology from Columbia University in 1934. After conducting field research on Comanche legal systems at the Santa Fe Laboratory of Anthropology under the direction of Ralph Linton, his resulting dissertation findings were published in an article titled "The Political Organization and Law-ways of the Comanche Indians." He later became a professor, head of the anthropology department, and Dean of Arts and Sciences at the University of Utah. Hoebel took visiting professorships at the universities of Harvard, Chicago, Nijmegen, Arizona, and Lehigh and served as president of the American Ethnological Society and the American Anthropological Association. He retired as Regents' Professor of Anthropology at the University of Minnesota.
