Todd Tucky graduated from Wright State in 1990 with a B.A. in Anthropology and went on to The Ohio State University to pursue graduate work in archaeology. He completed his M.A. degree in 1992, but while working toward the Ph.D. was sidetracked into the information technology world by taking a position with the Ohio Historical Society.
Todd became the resident computer and IT at the Ohio Historic Preservation Office (OHPO) and was named their computer systems manager, a position he held from 1997-2003. Since October 2003, he has held the position of information systems manager for the Historical Society, in which he oversees the Society's network and internet systems, the GIS program, and support and reporting functions for the OHS Accounting and Budgeting process. In December 2005, he was recognized as a certified GIS professional. Among his numerous accomplishments has been the development of a comprehensive GIS system for the archaeological and historical sites maintained by the OHPO, which received the Best Practice Award for the State of Ohio in 2003. He has also been the project manager for the digitization of all the paper inventory forms and maps for the OHPO.
To date, Todd has received almost 1 million dollars in grant support for his GIS, digitization, and historic preservation work.
