Blogger deserves GSA History Award

Posted by Callan Bentley

Join me in nominating David Bressan’s History of Geology blog for the Geological Society of America’s Mary C. Rabbitt History of Geology Award. To my knowledge, this would be the first time a blogger has won that honor. Every time I read one of David’s posts, I learn something new. I think it’s a wonderful service that he provides.

Who among you appreciate David’s efforts enough to support the application with a letter of support? Let me know who’s in. The nomination is due by February 1, so shoot me an e-mail if you want to contribute to the process. I might suggest that you emphasize how David synthesizes knowledge about the history of geology in order to promote understanding among a wide range of people using a free medium, the internet.

Thanks in advance!
