Dewey Medal

John Dewey

The Society is delighted that the inaugural award of the new Dewey medal, which the President announced at the 2017 Annual General Meeting last June, was made at this year’s AGM on 6 June.  

This medal is awarded to a geologist who has made substantial and significant contributions to geology through sustained field mapping and/or field observation of rocks, and who has a strong record of training, leading and encouraging others to practise and pursue advances in geology by this means. 

The Society is most grateful to Professor John Dewey for making this award possible through his generous donation.
