Chris Wayne


Chris Wayne has been a professional Geographer for over 20 years, after spending seven years roaming the world as an archaeologist. He has worked in federal, local and state government, higher education and the private sector. A native Hoosier, Chris earned a BA in Anthropology from Indiana University and an MS in Geography from Oregon State University. He now calls the State of Jefferson in Southern Oregon home. Chris loves old maps and atlases, and frequently aggravates his lovely and patient wife by bringing home orphaned specimens from thrift shops and used book stores.
