Journal of Northeast Texas Archaeology
A key to my career as an archaeologist working in East Texas has been a very successful professional-avocational collaboration on a wide range of projects with individuals and avocational organizations working in East Texas, such as the Northeast Texas Archeological Society, the East Texas Archeological Society, the Valley of the Caddo Archeological Society, the East Texas Caddo Research Group, as well as the Gregg County Historical Museum, among other museums in the region that hold ancestral Caddo archaeological collections. It has been my good fortune to work with a number of very knowledgeable and hard-working East Texas avocational archaeologists and Texas Archeological Stewardship Network members over the years, including Bo Nelson (who has gone on to establish a professional career as an archaeologist and also start his own CRM firm, Tejas Archaeology, in 1997), Mark Walters, Tom Middlebrook, Patti Haskins, Robert L. Turner, Jr., Kevin Stingley, Bryan Boyd, Mike Turner, Mark Thatcher, Gary W. Cheatwood, Clyde Amick, Lee Green, and Bill Young, among others.
