William H. Doelle, Ph.D., founded the company in Tucson in 1982, as the Arizona Division of the California-based nonprofit, the Institute of American Research. The company grew and prospered, prompting Dr. Doelle to form Desert Archaeology, Inc., in 1989, to accept a growing number of cultural resources management contracts.
