Basic Biographical Information

Norman Clermont (Fig. 1) (born 16 October 1940 [Grand-Mère, QC, Canada]) is a Canadian Amerindianist who pioneered the development of field archaeology, ethnohistory, and paleoanthropology in the province of Québec and Northeastern North America more broadly. His publications have explored various topics, methodologies, and culture groups including the history of anthropological thought (Clermont 1978a, b, 1984), field archaeology (Clermont 1982, 1990a), ethnography (Clermont 1977), the Atikamekw (Clermont 1974, 1978c), and the Iroquoians (Clermont 1990b, 1996). Gifted speaker and inspirational intellectual, Clermont occupies a privileged place among the pioneer minds of Québec scientific history.
