Robert G. Doyle, State Geologist of Maine from 1958 to 1979

Bob Doyle, former Director of the Maine Geological Survey, passed away on August 13. He developed a rigorous program in economic geology, and in 1967 oversaw the creation of the first modern statewide bedrock geologic map of Maine.  In his later years, he remained active in the geological community and introduced many students to geology through the courses he offered at the local community college. His obituary is available here.
