"Politics and Dirt!" W. J. Wintemberg in Toronto
In his application to be considered a Fellow of the Society for American Archaeology in 1935, W.J. Wintemberg listed himself as an archaeological preparator beginning in 1902. Diamond Jenness wrote in WJW's obituary that his first job in archaeology was at the Dominion Museum, in Ottawa, in 1911. What is known about WJW in Toronto between 1902 and 1911 when he departed for Ottawa? As we know from Andrew Hunter, WJW was a "Conservative!" Did that poli?cal affiliation hold him in good stead in Toronto? Politics and Dirt! An interesting period in Ontario Archaeology.

Keffer is an ancestral North Shore Iroquoian village situated in the Upper Don River Valley. The development of this community is highly integrated and dependant on the relations of its inhabitants with those in the surrounding Lake Ontario north shore area. These relationships are central to the identity of the Keffer community.
