The Antonio J. Waring, Jr. Anthropology Scholarship Fund

The Antonio J. Waring, Jr. Endowment in Anthropology was established by Mrs. Henrietta Waring in memory of her husband, Dr. Antonio J. Waring, Jr. (1915-1964). Dr. Waring was one of the pioneers of Anthropology in Georgia and is responsible for defining the prehistoric cultural chronology of the coastal region of Georgia. Although professionally trained in medicine, Dr. Waring had interests in archaeology and directed and participated in several major archaeological excavations in the southeastern United States. It is indeed fortunate that the training of a new generation of anthropologists is encouraged and supported by the generosity of the Waring family.

The Waring Endowment funds several programs including several scholarship for Anthropology majors, travel and research awards for Anthropology students, a lecture series, as well as the West Georgia Anthropological Society.
