"I've got a question about Hargrove's normative culture models-"
―Student in Library[src]

The Student in library was a sophomore at Marshall College in 1957 and was in an archaeology class taught by Professor Henry Walton Jones, Jr.


At some point, the student enrolled at Marshall College and became a sophomore. He also entered the archaeology class that Professor Henry Walton Jones, Jr. taught, going to him when he had any questions or doubts.[1]

One day, while studying in the reading room of the Marshall College Library, he was disrupted as a motorcycle driven by a greaser skidded to a stop against his chair. Noticing that the motorcycle's passenger was his archaeology professor, the student asked Jones about Hargrove's normative model of culture. Jones replied to skip Hargrove and read Vere Gordon Childe instead. Hopping back onto the motorcycle, Jones gave the student a final piece of advice: if he wanted to be a good archaeologist, he needed to get out of the library.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Student in Library was played by rapper Chet Hanks in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Hanks is the son of actor Tom Hanks, director Steven Spielberg's most frequent collaborator.
