Prof. S. Thomas Parker, a giant in the field of classical archaeology and the archaeology of Jordan, passed away 12 September 2021. An ACOR trustee since 1987 and officer (second vice president) for twenty years (2001–2021), he had a deep commitment to our community and will be dearly missed.
Tom’s family would like to establish an endowment fund in his honor here at ACOR, and this page begins the effort to do so. We are honored to help continue his legacy into the future.
Tom inspired, supported, and connected with an untold number of students, colleagues, and friends. If you are such a person and want to help keep his memory alive or honor him, one way is to make a contribution to this effort.
Please consider sharing stories about Tom, and about this effort, on social media.
