Larry Fellows to receive AASG award

Larry Fellows, director of the Arizona Geological Survey and its predecessor organizations for 26 years, will receive the Distinguished Service Award from the Association of American State Geologists on the occasion of their 100th anniversary.

Larry served as AASG president in 1988-89 as well as on more than 20 committees and panels over the years, half of which he chaired. Even after his retirement in 2005, Larry continued supporting AASG by chairing the Honorary Members Committee. When I became State Geologist of Utah in 1989, Larry served as a mentor and role model. Whenever I had a tough problem, Larry was the go-to guy with ideas on how to solve it. It was a role he played for many of us.

The award will be presented at the AASG annual meeting in Shepherdstown WV at the end of June.
