About Author

George A. Dorsey

George Amos Dorsey (February 6, 1868 – March 29, 1931) was an American ethnographer of indigenous peoples of the Americas, with a particular focus on the Great Plains Caddoan and Siouan tribes. While working as curator at the Field Museum in Chicago from 1898 to 1915, he is credited with helping to create the anthropology of Plains Indian nations. From 1907 to 1915, he was also Professor of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. Dorsey was one of the first anthropologists to testify as an expert forensic witness in the murder prosecution of Adolph Luetgert in Chicago in 1897, when he examined what he established were human remains. Why We Behave Like Human Beings, his cultural study, became an unexpected blockbuster in 1925. This prompted the release of his 1917 novel, as well as the publication of several other volumes on anthropology and culture. One book that was in the works when he died in 1931 was published posthumously. Edwin Jackson and Mary Emma (née Grove) Dorsey raised Dorsey in Hebron, Ohio. Prior to college, he attended local schools. In 1888, he got a Bachelor of Arts degree from Denison University, and in 1890, he received a second bachelor's degree in anthropology from Harvard University.
