William Iseminger - IHPA legacy

Bill Iseminger, an anthropologist, began his career at Cahokia Mounds in 1971 when the site was in serious disrepair, encroached upon by several developments, including a housing area and drive in theater. Over the next forty-six years he helped manage the site's transformation into a world class archaeological site, becoming one of UNESCO's World Heritage Site in 1982. In 1989, a world class museum was added to the site, and Cahokia Mounds is now the site for archaeological digs and research.
