The Geological Engineering class of 1955 was small – only three students – but it bore a wealth of talent. William Smitheringale, BSc’55, PhD (MIT), was a geological consultant in BC for many years; Eric Walter Mountjoy, BSc’55, PhD (Uni. of Toronto), was a professor at McGill and received the 1997 Logan Medal of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC) for his teaching and research on carbonate rocks; and William A. Padgham, BSc’55, PhD (Wisconsin), who won the 1996 Ambrose metal of the GAC for his sustained and dedicated service to the Canadian earth science community.
