Notes: The Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project (MMARP) was founded in the 1970s by Daviíd Carrasco, a historian of religions, archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, and archaeoastronomer Anthony Aveni. Its intellectual mission is to organize and transmit new knowledge about the history of religion and society in Mesoamerica. Its educational program is modeled on the interdisciplinary work of the Templo Mayor Project in Mexico City guided by Eduardo Matos Moctezuma. MMARP iscurrently housed in the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University.
Description: approximately 2,979 pictures : approximately 1,700 black-and-white and color negatives with corresponding contact prints, approximately 179 gelatin silver prints

Abstract:

The collection comprises Lawrence Desmond's photographic documentation of symposia organized by the Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project (MMARP) held between 1982 and 1999 at the University of Colorado-Boulder; the Museo Templo Mayor, Mexico City; and Princeton University. Included in the collection are approximately 1,700 black-and-white and color negatives with corresponding contact prints, approximately 179 gelatin silver prints of various sizes, and a panoramic print of the 1989 symposium participants at the Templo Mayor Museum in Mexico City, also reproduced as a symposium poster. Desmond's unpublished catalog of his MMARP photographs, "Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project, 1982-1994: catalog of black-and-white and color negatives and transparencies," 2013, accompanies the collection. Also included are two copies of Davíd Carrasco and Jane Marie Swanberg, Waiting for the dawn: Mircea Eliade in perspective, 1985, illustrated with a number of Desmond's early MMARP photographs.

In 1982 Davíd Carrasco invited Eduardo Matos Moctezuma to give a talk on the excavation of the Templo Mayor in Mexico City at the University of Colorado-Boulder. This is the first of the MMARP events documented in the collection. Later that year Mircea Eliade, the noted Romanian historian of religion from the University of Chicago whose ideas had influenced Carrasco and Matos Moctezuma, led a week-long multi-disciplinary symposium at Boulder. Lawrence Desmond, then a graduate student in anthropology and archaeology at Boulder, who as already making photographs for the MMARP Templo Mayor Archaeological Site Photo Archive, photographed these early events, thereby becoming the unofficial photographer for MMARP. He continued to document its activities until 1999.

Carrasco, Matos Moctezuma and Eliade and his wife Christinel, are prominently featured in the photographs. Other symposia participants pictured in the collection include Anthony Aveni, Elizabeth Boone, José Cuellar, Barbara Fash, Doris Heyden, Jaime Litvak King, Cecelia Klein, Leonardo López Luján, Charles K. Long, Phyllis Messenger, Raphael Moses, Henry B. Nicholson and Desmond himself. Most of the photographs were taken during the symposia and at symposia receptions and meals. Symposia speakers and participants are represented in individual images and in both posed and candid group portraits.
