As I approach retirement – my successor Jonathon Cooper starts as our new Technical Director in a couple of days - I search for some profound and meaningful comment to make about my experience at Carleton over the past 36 school years. But if I were a profound person I would have been a philosopher or a theorist rather than a technical director, so maybe I should just keep it simple. I have enjoyed my work at Carleton immensely. The place, the people, and the subject of geology have all been interesting and rewarding.
I am leaving the Carleton Geology Department in good hands, and I know that the faculty, Jon Cooper as the new Technical Director, Ellen Haberoth, and current and future students all will take good care of the Geology Department and help it thrive into the future.
There is absolutely no question that the very best part of my experience in all these years has been getting to meet and work with well over a thousand wonderful people at Carleton.
