(From the collection guide for the Richard Daugherty Papers, Cage 808):
Archaeologist Richard Deo Daugherty (1922-2014) was born and raised in Washington State. He attended the public schools in his hometown of Aberdeen and went on to Central Washington College and University of Washington. His schooling was interrupted by World War II when he joined the US Navy Air Corps. During his time in the Navy, he was a blimp pilot stationed in New Jersey, and taught meteorology and navigation at the Navy Air Navigation School. After the war, he returned to the University of Washington. After earning his Ph.D. in Anthropology at University of Washington, he joined the Anthropology Department at Washington State University in 1950. During his 30-year career at WSU, he taught and supervised undergraduate and graduate students, served as department chair, and conducted extensive field research. He led excavation efforts at several of the most important archaeological sites in Washington, including Ozette, Lind Coulee, and Marmes. After retiring in 1985, he started Western Heritage, Inc., an archaeological consulting firm.
