Since the Norwegian Expedition to Easter Island in 1955-56, led by Thor Heyerdahl, University of Wyoming anthropologists have been involved in archaeological and osteological research on the island. The late Dr. William Mulloy, University of Wyoming anthropologist, was a member of the original team of professional scientists elected by Heyerdahl. He maintained a strong and enduring commitment to continued research there until his death in 1978. Today, his students and colleagues continue much of his pioneering work.
