About Alan M. Leventhal

I am a trained archaeologist/anthropologist/ethnohistorian with particular interest in California archaeology and ethnography. During the early 1970s, I had worked at the American Museum of Natural History in New York in the Anthropology and Education departments. I completed my undergraduate degree in Anthropology at City College of New York (CCNY) and continued graduate work at City University of New York and University of Nevada, Reno.
During the mid-1970s worked as a state archaeologist at the Nevada Archaeological Survey at the University of Nevada, Reno, and taught classes in archaeology and North American Indian cultures there. In 1978, I briefly worked as a Forest Service Archaeologist in the Lassen National Forest before coming to San Jose State University where I spent nine years in the Department of Anthropology as the Anthropology Lab Director. I completed my Master’s Thesis at SJSU in Social Sciences with an emphasis in Anthropology/Archaeology. My thesis was entitled A Reinterpretation of Some Bay Area Shellmound Sites: A View from the Mortuary Complex from CA-ALA-329, the Ryan Mound.
Presently I work as on the administrative staff as an Information Technology Consultant in the Office of the Dean, College of Social Sciences and I continue to teach as a volunteer lecturer about contemporary Native American Issues in the Urban and Regional Planning Department and topics on advanced methods and theory in Archaeology in the Anthropology Department.
