Summary

The future of Historical Archaeology, cultural resource management, and the National Park Service are richer because of the contributions of Stephen R. Potter including his encyclopedic knowledge, robust research and syntheses, indefatigable energy, and his ability to partner, share, and support growth of the field, individual researchers, and public experiences and understandings.  Beneficial outcomes of his NHPA Section 110 management studies along the C&O Canal include his support of synthetic research and public interpretation and experiences in the development of a Trail of Native American history in the Middle Potomac, exemplifying best practices of public outreach and professional partnering.   Further, his lifelong research directly contributes to current efforts to expand our definitions of cultural landscapes and their management and his detailed historical and archaeological work has expanded our conceptions of ethnicity, identity, diversity, and the definition of archaeological sites.  His contributions beneficially reverberate well beyond the Potomac, enriching our nation.
