It is with sadness we report the passing of Dr. James Stoltman in Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday. Dr. Stoltman, an Emeritus Professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, was a long-time contributor to the archaeology of the Eastern Woodlands who trained many of the current generation of archeologists practicing in the Midwest.
He took students to the field regularly for decades to Prairie du Chien, at the Fred Edwards site, the Bass site, and others. In the last months before he died, he submitted articles for publication in the Wisconsin Archeologist (Brisbois House excavations) as well as contributions to a book. He will be missed.
Dr. Stoltman's funeral will be next Tuesday September 17th at 11:00 at Cress Funeral Home in Middleton. The address is 6021 University Ave, Madison, Wisconsin 53705.
