Dr. Lindsey earned a Master of Arts in History from Abilene Christian University and a Ph.D. in History with an emphasis in Historic Preservation from Texas Tech University. He also earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Texas Tech University and is an architect, as well as a historian. As an architect associated with various architectural offices and as an owner of an architectural firm, he designed office buildings, shopping centers, churches, banks, warehouses, medical facilities, residences, public and private school buildings, hospitals, a university coliseum and other higher education facilities.
Thus, as a historian as well as an architect, Dr. Lindsey combines both fields to focus on the preservation and interpretation of historically and/or architecturally significant buildings. In addition, his areas of interest are Public History, the American West, American Indian history, Civil War and Reconstruction, the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, and U.S. History since 1945. He holds teacher certification in Secondary Social Studies and taught and coached in two Christian high schools. As well, he taught in the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University where he instructed architecture design studios, and classes on ancient, medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture, and historic preservation. Dr. Lindsey also taught in the Department of History at Texas Tech, and in the history departments of Abilene Christian University and Oklahoma Christian University. He is a member of the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society and is the faculty adviser for its LCU chapter, Alpha-Rho-Gamma.
