About Marjorie H. Akin

Marjorie (Margie) Akin has spent most of her life in California where she completed her education (Ph.D. University of California, Riverside, 1996), married, and raised four children. Her area of specialization within the field of historic archaeology is numismatics and included among her publications are contributions to Roberta Greenwood's Down by the Station: Los Angeles Chinatown 1890-1933, Julia Costello's The Luck of Third Street, and many articles and reports about Asian coins recovered in North America. Her publications in other fields include the seminal essay Passionate Possession: the Formation of private collections (Smithsonian 1992) which examined the world of collectors and the often-fractious relationship between archaeologists and collectors. She has been active in the Riverside "Save Our Chinatown Committee" to protect the archaeological remains of Riverside's Chinatown from development (see James (Jim) Bard completed his education (Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley, 1979), married, and raised three children.

Jim currently is the Pacific Northwest Cultural Resources Lead for Cardno, Inc. in Portland, Oregon. He has worked throughout the western U.S. as a principal investigator and project manager specializing in precontact and historical archaeology.

His writings include several published articles in regional journals and agency-sponsored cultural resources management compliance reports. Jim believes that much can be gained by cooperation between professional archaeologists and amateur archaeologists, numismatists, and private collectors.Kevin Akin, a retired steam engineer, has provided physical labor for Margie Akin's archaeological projects for 41 years. He is a longtime collector of coins and tokens, an active member of several numismatic organizations, and has designed medals for coin clubs and community organizations.
