Dr. Archie Dickey started teaching full-time at Yavapai College in 1971. He taught Biology, General Botany, Identification of Arizona Plants, Natural History of the Southwest, and Plant Biology.
The very first semester Dr. Dickey was here he started the Yavapai College Herbarium with twenty five of his own plant specimens. His intention was to establish a reference collection of flora from the local area. Over the years with summer trips and student field trips the collection grew to over 6,000 specimens. The Herbarium was used as a teaching aid in botany and other classes.
Dr. Dickey took his students on numerous field trips to increase their understanding of biology and botany and have hands-on experience in the field. He also initiated and helped develop the 2+2 program with Northern Arizona University in Environmental Science. This program allows students to take two years of classes at YC and then transfer to NAU to finish their Bachelor’s Degrees in two more years.
Dr. Archie Dickey retired in 1998 and was recognized as Emeritus Faculty in December, 2006.
