Margaret Mead did have three husbands...the first was Luther Cressman
from 1923-28. I believe he was a minister.The second was Reo Fortune, a
New Zealand psychologist turned anthropologist from 1928-35. The third
was Gregory Bateson (1936-50). He was a British anthropologist whose
strong natural science background influenced Mead's work.
Information from a book called Women Anthropologists - Selected
Biographies edited by Gacs, Khan, McIntyre, and Weinberg. USA: Greenwood
press, 1988.
Hope that helps you! :)
