John F. Schuttler
Historical Research Services
Mr. Schuttler has worked at Heritage since 1991. He began as a research assistant in the Missoula office, established the Denver office and accepted the post of Vice President for Historical and Cultural Resource Services in 1994.
Schuttler is responsible for defining research strategies and priorities. Those tasks involve design and preparation of proposals, task assignment and direction, coordination of project-related tasks amongst staff in disparate locations, and integration of multiple projects active at any given time. Schuttler maintains contacts with past and present clients along with developing new business.
Schuttler serves as a principal historian, also. He has extensive experience conducting research in materials held in the National Archives and Records Administration system. His knowledge of finding aids and the logistics of using materials in the National Archives system facilitate greater efficiency in our efforts. Schuttler has worked with materials in numerous state and local archives, academic institutions and public repositories, also. Familiarity with these diverse sources permits Schuttler to construct methodologies specifically-tailored to each unique project.
Schuttler received a B.A. in history from Montana State University and an M.A. in history for the University of Montana. Despite those seemingly divided loyalties, John will always be a Bobcat (that's MSU, folks) fan.
