Geoscience Center and Museum News - February, 2023

Updated: Feb 24

We had a good response to the February Living Legends Doodlebugger social event. We had some new attendees and a few possible volunteers for help with some of the items on our project list. The next such event will be on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.


We have received a donation of a Helicorder from Mark Willis. It had been used at MIT to record earthquake events in their earthquake monitoring research. Mark had previously donated a collection of geophones and other instruments used in earthquake studies.


I continue to receive papers, files, and publications of Enders Robinson dating from the 1940’s forward from his wife Joyce. Some of his books will follow. We will need to organize everything and decide what to add to our library and what to keep in storage. There is also a continuing effort to work on the organization of the storage racks and dispose of some of the unusable items. Volunteers are always welcome.


In addition to our growing collection of books and manuals in the Bob Sheriff Library, we have a large collection of geoscience related periodicals. A partial listing is below and there are missing issues in some of the years shown. Donations of missing issues are welcome. We are also working on an inventory of our digital files which includes more recent issues of some of the periodicals. Pictures of the periodicals portion of the Library are included with this article.
