Smithsonian home to WSU anthropology prof’s bones

WASHINGTON — In a dim hallway in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History, anthropologist David Hunt opens a dingy green cabinet and pulls out a drawer full of human bones. “This,” he says, “is Grover Krantz.”

…. Krantz spent 30 years at Wazzu, teaching anthropology, human evolution and forensics while running the university’s anthropology lab. His tests were notoriously difficult, but his classes filled up because he was so much fun.
