I met John shortly after beginning my tenure as a faculty member at the University of Northern Colorado in 1971. After his talk about the activities of the newly re-constituted Colorado Geological Survey (CGS), I became a fan of John and CGS. As I moved around the country, I always followed with interest, his leadership of CGS. His legacy to the people of Colorado is large and lasting.
