Born in Aurora, New York in 1818, Lewis Henry Morgan initially pursued a career in law. However, his passion for understanding human society led him to abandon law and embark on a lifelong journey of research and writing. Morgan's meticulous observations and innovative theories revolutionized the field of anthropology, making him one of its founding fathers.

Pioneering Studies on Kinship and Social Organization

One of Morgan's most significant contributions was his groundbreaking work on kinship systems. In his acclaimed book 'Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family' (1871),Morgan proposed a revolutionary theory that human kinship systems could be classified into six categories based on marriage patterns and family structures.

Morgan's research on Iroquois society provided a foundation for his theories. He spent years living among the Iroquois, carefully studying their social organization, kinship terminology, and marriage customs. His insights into their matrilineal clan system profoundly influenced his understanding of the evolution of human society.

The Evolutionary Theory of Society

Morgan is also renowned for his pioneering work on social evolution. In his seminal book 'Ancient Society' (1877),he proposed a comprehensive theory of the development of human societies from savagery through barbarism to civilization.
