Paul Coze (1903–1974) was a French-American anthropologist, artist, and writer, most notable as a French authority on Native Americans. Coze moved to the United States in 1938, and lived in Pasadena, California since 1942, spending two years producing murals at Mesa Verde National Park. In 1951, Coze moved to Phoenix, Arizona. He soon founded an art school and created nine major pieces of public art in the city, including large multimedia installations at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum and other civic landmarks, most with Native themes. He also provided artistic designs for Arizona's celebration of 50 years of statehood, The Arizona Story, in 1962.
