Independent scholar, art historian, exploration philanthropist, and global traveler Jack Daulton is one of the world's most acclaimed travel lecturers on the subjects of non-western art, architecture, and belief systems.  During the past twenty-five years, he has been a study leader on more than 50 group trips around the world to more than 75 countries (from Asia to Africa, from South America to the Pacific Islands), representing some of the world's most distinguished institutions, including, among others, The National Geographic Society, The American Museum of Natural History, and The Art Institute of Chicago.  On these trips, Jack has presented hundreds of lectures covering a vast and diverse range of subjects relating to non-Western art, architecture, and material culture and non-Western religious traditions and belief systems (including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and animism, among others).  In the early 1990s, he did field work in India and Myanmar relating to relic veneration in Buddhist Asia; and, in 1999, published the results of this work in the Journal of Burma Studies in the widely-cited article "Sariputta and Moggallana in the Golden Land: The Relics of the Buddha's Chief Disciples at the Kaba Aye Pagoda."  Jack is also well known for his activity in exploration philanthropy, funding research expeditions around the globe, from archaeological digs in the Peruvian Andes to language documentation projects on remote atolls in Micronesia and among isolated groups in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas.  He personally collected in the field nearly every item on this website.
