Maria Reiche
Birth: May 15, 1903
Death: Jun., 1998

Mathematician and archaeologist. She dedicated half a century to protecting and studying massive ancient drawings in the Peruvian desert. Reiche became a legend in Peru for her almost single-handed battle to preserve the Nazca lines, a set of mysterious animal figures scratched into the desert floor about 250 miles south of Lima. She was laid to rest besides the enigmatic drawings she spent half a lifetime protecting on the plains of Nazca, Peru. (bio by: David G. Stuart)
