During 1925, he traveled with the Danish archeologist Frans Blom, who taught at Tulane University, to what is now known as the Olmec heartland. He (re) discovered San Martin Pajapan Monument 1 and, more importantly, the ruins of La Venta, one of the major Olmec centers. La Farge devoted considerable study to Native American peoples and issues, especially after relocating to Santa Fe, New Mexico, during 1933. He became a champion for American Indian rights and was president of the Association on American Indian Affairs for several years. During World War II, La Farge served with the U. S. Air Transport Command, ending service with the rank of major. He participated with the Battle for Greenland, commanded by Colonel Bernt Balchen. Balchen, together with Corey Ford and La Farge, wrote War Below Zero: The Battle for Greenland (1944) about the actions to defend Greenland." (from Wikipedia)
