THANKS

The existence and continued success of a small analytical laboratory (and my career in archaeology) like Northwest Research would simply not have been possible without the help and interest of a lot of different people over the years. For all of you that provided moral support, financial support, technical expertise, source information, good ideas, good company on field work, and all those many obsidian and fine-grained volcanic source samples ... a sincere thanks! I couldn't have done it without you.

The original crew - from left to right: Jennifer Thatcher, Craig Skinner (me), and Kathy Davis (1996).

My apologies to anyone that I missed - let me know.

The QuanX EC EDXRF spectrometer used at the lab for the last several years before I retired (2012).

The original Spectrace 5000 X-ray spectrometer that was used at the lab from 1992 until 2012 when the by-then irreplacable detector finally failed.
