History of the Sedalia - West Central Missouri Archaeological Society
The Sedalia - West Central Missouri Archaeological Society was founded in the Spring of 1985 by three avocational archaeologists: Irwin H Lehmer, who was the driving force, and his close friends Eldon C Leiter and Robert M. Seelen, all of Sedalia, Missouri. Dr Tom T Hoyne of Stover, Tom Christopher of Warrensburg, and Florence Collins of Sedalia were instrumental as well.

In 1986, the Sedalia - West Central Missouri Archaeological Society affiliated with the Missouri Archaeological Society as a state MAS chapter. We remain a separate archaeological organization and can separate from the State MAS at any time on majority vote of our general membership.

The membership area for the Sedalia chapter includes the eleven counties of Pettis, Johnson, Henry, Saline, Lafayette, Morgan, Benton, Cooper, Moniteau, Miller and Camden Counties. We also welcom members from outside this given area.

Since Sedalia is more or less centralized in the eleven county area, the monthly meetings are held the fourth Saturday of the month in Sedalia. However, each summer the club holds an Artifacts Show outside of Sedalia. The purpose of the show is to promote archaeology in the west central area of Missouri. This show is free and open to the public. Features of the show are an artifact identification booth, a booth to register archaeological sites, a professional archaeologist to answer questions, plus hundreds of actual Native American artifacts found in Missouri. This is an educational show and NOT a buy/sell/trade show.

Professional Archaeologist, Gary Rex Walters, Ph.D., has been our "in-house" archaeologist for over 20 years. He devotes a great deal of his time to our chapter - without charge.

The Sedalia - West Central Missouri Archaeological Society abides by Missouri and Federal Archaeological Laws regarding site excavations and archaeological surveys. Site excavations are done only when requested by archaeological organizations and approved by vote of general chapter membership.

The organization is an educational endeavor and not for selling or trading of artifacts. Many of our members join with limited archaeological knowledge and little archaeological field experience.
