EAC Middle Campus

The Mills Collection and other Archaelogical Publications

Ardent avocational archaelogists Jack and Vera Mills conducted extensive excavations in Southeastern Arizona and Western New Mexico.  Their world-class collection is on display as a self-guided tour in the College's Student Services Building at the Thatcher Campus.

Some research on this collection and other past publications from the former Eastern Arizona College Museum of Anthropology has been saved in .pdf format for those who would like access to that research.  The links below will open those files.
