Directory of Geoscience Departments, United States and Canada.
Henderson, Bonnie C.
The 1970 edition of the Directory of Geoscience Departments has a combined listing of 640 colleges and universities offering instruction in the earth sciences in the United States and Canada. Of these, 407 grant degrees in one or more of the geosciences. The remaining schools comprise 137 junior colleges and 96 four-year colleges that offer some courses but not degrees in the field. A chart of available degree programs by subject matter is arranged by geographic location of the institutions, with the Canadian universities followed by a state-by-state listing of those in the United States. All degree information for one school appears on one line, whether furnished by single or by several departments. The main section of the Directory is an alphabetic listing of all 640 institutions, with separate faculty and degree information in the case of multiple geoscience departments under one university heading. Highest earned degrees, where and when received, are shown for each of the 4,603 faculty members in the entire Directory. In degree-granting departments, the faculty are shown by academic rank. A chart of summer field course data for those schools operating camps or special field trips describes location, duration and geology studied. Appended footnotes give further particulars from individual departments. (Author/PR)
