Professor Pat Manley Receives Whiting Foundation Fellowship

April 22, 2016

Professor of Geology Pat Manley has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled Reading the Rocks: A History of Modern Geology. The grant will fund travel in England and Scotland this summer to geologic locations that are key to understanding the history of modern geology and to museums and historic sites that will bring to life the geologists who founded this field. Manley's goal is to enhance her teaching of introductory and advanced geology by adding sections on the history of geologic thought.
