Geologic map dedication to Larry Fellows

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of presenting a geologic map dedicated to Larry Fellows, my predecessor as Director of AZGS.

The presentation was made during the AIPG Arizona Chapter's annual business meeting at the AZGS offices in Tucson.  Many of the AIPG national board of directors were also in attendance.

The map is "Geologic Map Database for Aggregate Resource Assessment in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area and Surrounding Regions, Arizona," authored by Phil Pearthree, Brian Gootee, Stephen Richard, and Jon Spencer.

The dedication on the map reads:

This map is dedicated to Dr. Larry D. Fellows, first official State Geologist of Arizona, who transformed the Bureau of Geology and Mineral Technology into the modern Arizona Geological Survey, in recognition and appreciation of his contributions to advancing the understanding of the geology of Arizona and its applications for societal benefits.
