April 13, 2006 - Each spring, the geology faculty faces the difficult task of selecting a few students to be Duncan Stewart Fellows. The Duncan Stewart Fellowship was established in 1976 by Daniel Gainey, class of 1949, in honor of Duncan Stewart, professor of geology at Carleton for nearly 25 years.
We select the Stewart Fellows based on a combination of excellence in scholarship, a high level of intellectual curiosity, potential for scientific growth, and involvement in departmental activities. As we make this selection, we realize how fortunate we are to have so many talented, interesting, and impressive students within the department.
We are pleased to announce that Mark Dyson, William Guenthner and Kendra Murray, all class of '07, will be the 2006-07 Duncan Stewart Fellows. Mark, Willie and Kendra will extend the number of Stewart Fellows to 86. Congratulations and best wishes to you!

February 13, 2006 - We are extremely pleased to announce that Cameron Davidson, who has been teaching Mineralogy, Petrology, Structural Geology, Environmental and Science Policy, Introductory Geology, and the Italy Program for the past several years, has been awarded tenure by the college.
Cam earned his B.S. in Geology and Geophysics at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and his Masters and Ph.D. at Princeton. Cam actually came to us from Beloit College in Wisconsin where he taught for seven years and was tenured. His fields of specialization are metamorphic petrology, structural geology and tectonics, and his current research interests include the metamorphic and structural evolution of the middle and deep crust during mountain building and the tectonic evolution of southern and southeastern Alaska and northern British Columbia.
Among his current professional activities, Cam is on the editorial board for the journal Geology, published by the Geological Society of America, and is the Distinguished Lecture Series Coordinator for the Mineralogical Society of America.
