Public Forum Speaker
Doug Boyd was raised in the small town of Tulia in the Texas Panhandle. He received a BA degree in General Studies-Archeology from West Texas State University in 1983 and an MA degree in Anthropology from Texas A&M University in 1986. While his career has taken him all across Texas and beyond, the prehistory of the Tex-as Panhandle remains his passion. He has published more than 150 CRM reports and articles for books, pro-fessional journals, and popular magazines.
One of his more recent books is a collaboration with John Erickson, Porch Talk: A Conversation About Ar-chaeology in the Texas Panhandle. He received the TAS Fellow award in 2022 in recognition of the 20 plus years he has served as the Youth Program Director at Field School.
