The Flints have been leading the field in groundbreaking documentary research on the Coronado expedition for the last 35 years. They both hold Master’s degrees from New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Richard also earned a Ph.D. in Latin American and Western United States History from the University of New Mexico. The Flints have conducted extensive research in numerous archives in Mexico, Spain, and the United States, and have participated in archaeological investigations in New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona related to the Coronado entrada. They directed two major conferences on the Coronado expedition in 1992 and 2000. Those conferences resulted in the location and identification of the Jimmy Owens site near Lubbock, Texas, a 1541 campsite of the Coronado expedition. In lieu of hosting a third conference, the Flints invited submissions from many of those active in the field which were published in 2011 as a volume entitled The Latest Word from 1540: People, Places, and Portrayals of the Coronado Expedition (UNM 2011). They are currently completing a 12-year documentary research project. The results of that project will be conventional publication of a major analysis of the membership and operations of the Coronado entrada: A Most Splendid Company: The Inner Workings of the Coronado Expedition to Tierra Nueva (UNM 2018). That will be accompanied by online publication of the massive data base that has resulted from the research for the use of other scholars. During the last seven years, Richard has been serving as an expert witness concerning Spanish colonial documents in water rights cases for the Pueblos of Laguna and Santo Domingo in New Mexico. Shirley’s most recent major publication is No Mere Shadows: Faces of Widowhood in Early Colonial Mexico (UNM 2013).
