I am a geologist and for 34 years taught on the UW-Madison campus. During that time I interacted with, and benefited from, many staff and faculty members at the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. My success in understanding Wisconsin geology was greatly enhanced by joint research and discussions with the late Dr. Lee Clayton and now retired Dr. John Attig. In my retirement, now working as a consultant, the new Quaternary geologists at the Survey, Dr. Eric Carson and Dr. Elmo Rawling, have kept me enthused and informed about Wisconsin geology. Perhaps more importantly, all of the staff, from Director to hourly help student, have made me feel part of their very professional community. They have helped to produce maps, edited and published my work, and provided outreach support and materials for my own community and university educational programs. I had, and continue to have, success as a geologist in Wisconsin in large part because of the support and cooperation of WGNHS staff.
