Dr. Ryan Gray (Anthropology)


D. Ryan Gray (Department of Anthropology, University of New Orleans) specializes in recent historical archaeology.  His dissertation (University of Chicago, 2012) examined race, segregation, and the origins of public housing in the U.S.  His recent projects in New Orleans range from the archaeology of the city’s earliest Colonial-era cemetery, to that of the ‘Storyville’ red light district, sometimes regarded as the birthplace of New Orleans jazz. 

This summer, in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck, he will lead an archaeological field school searching for the crash site of a Tuskegee Airman from World War II.
