Though widely attributed to Mead, we can't find a citation for this.  (See Wikiquote: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Margaret_Mead#New_millennium)

The Book Architecture and Field/Work (page 80, note 3) describes this adage as "a simplification of extensive writing by Mead on the fieldwork of anthropologists."
