Thus, the InterAgency Archaeological Salvage Program came into being (Brew 1968:3). Pursuant to a 1945 agreement (revised in 1961 and 1965), the NPS became responsible for “over-all programming, funding, and administration” while the SI functioned as an “advisor to the NPS in the planning and programming stages” and as “the major cooperating agency in salvage operations and the publication of archaeological research” (Petsche 1968:iii). In California, fieldwork was performed under the local direction of the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), Department of Anthropology and, until June 30, 1949, UCB’s California Archaeological Survey (CAS).

The actual losses to the archaeological record by flooding were far more appalling than we ever dreamed at the time. When Donald J. Lehmer and I began working on the Missouri River in North Dakota in 1966, we knew of only five earthlodge village sites along a seven-mile stretch of the terraces lining the valley on the property of the Cross Ranch, all of them Plains village sites. 7 sites per linear river mile. Since our focus was precisely on those villages, we neither looked for, nor did we find by chance, any further sites.

Field crews often visited one another over weekends during the summer field season to socialize and exchange ideas. ” The session produced a new taxonomy and chronology for the Central Plains and Middle Missouri areas (Stephenson 1954:15–21). Field-based “Half Plains Conferences” continued to be held for several years, often at the airport in Pierre, South Dakota, to share information and review mutual problems. These “mini” conferences were well attended and exceedingly useful. The MBP fieldwork provided training for hundreds of students, many of whom, like myself, never had a formal field school in archaeology.
