Jon Glass is a graduate student in the Cultural and Heritage Resource Management (CHRM) master’s program. As an anthropology undergraduate student, Mr. Glass began practicing cultural resource management in 2000. Since that time, he has participated in thousands of archaeological survey, testing, monitoring, and data recovery projects throughout the southeastern United States. Glass owns and operates a cultural resources management consulting firm on the Alabama Gulf Coast, conducting hundreds of projects each year. The intersection between project development and historic preservation has intrigued Glass since his introduction to this specialized field of “contract archaeology” 20 years ago. Whether through conducting cultural resource investigations on behalf of a federal or state agency, or by navigating private developers and clients through the various federal, state, and local historic preservation laws and regulations, Glass and his firm identify, record, and assess cultural resources, evaluating whether each proposed project will impact significant cultural resources, which may be eligible for or listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
