Livingston V. Watrous, Professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in archeology research and instruction.

After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in classics and art history in 1966 from Princeton University, Dr. Watrous later continued his education with a Doctor of Philosophy in classical archaeology in 1975 from the University of Pennsylvania. For nearly four decades, from 1977 to 2015,  he provided superior education as a professor of art history, classics and anthropology with the State University of New York at Buffalo and as a professor in the university’s professional Master of Business Administration program from 1977 to the present.

Dr. Watrous has published numerous books in the discipline of archeology including “Minoan Crete: an Introduction,” “Archaeological Survey of the Gournia Landscape: a Regional History of the Mirabello Bay, Crete, in Antiquity (Prehistory Monographs),” “Greek Vases from the Buffalo Museum of Science : Life’s Possessions: Treasures from Hades,” “The Plain of Phaistos: Cycles of Social Complexity in the Mesara Region of Crete (Monumenta Archaeologica)” and “Lasithi: A History of Settlement on a Highland Plain in Crete (Hesperia Supplement).” In addition, he co-authored “The Galatas Survey: The Socio-Economic and Political Development of a Contested Territory in Central Crete during the Neolithic to Ottoman Periods (Prehistory Monographs).”

From 2010 to the present, Dr. Watrous has prospered as the Director of Archaeological Excavation for the island of Crete and has served for one year as a professor with the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. He is a fluent Greek and Spanish speaker and has served his country in the United States Army Special Forces.

Dr. Watrous attributes his success to hard work. His mother instilled in him the value of hard work and education. In addition, his wife has been very helpful in preparing his publications. His goal in the coming years is to focus on two articles he is working on, and he is also working on putting together a series of volumes that would document what he and his team found during their archaeological excavation at the Island of Crete.
