Robert F. Heizer (1915-1979) was an anthropologist best known for his archeological and ethnographic work in California and Nevada. After receiving his doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley (1941), he worked there as a professor from 1946 to 1976, when he gained emeritus status. Heizer's research interests grew to include Mexican archeology, and he undertook an expedition in 1955 to La Venta with Philip Drucker, of the Bureau of American Ethnology, and Robert J. Squiers.
