Dr. Norris W. Jones
After 32 years of teaching Physical Geology, Optical Mineralogy, X-Ray Mineralogy, Petrology, and sundry other courses, Emeritus Professor Jones retired at the end of Spring Semester, 2000. His golf game reportedly has improved ever since, though he thinks the reporters must have been watching someone else.
Dr. Jones’s eighth edition of his popular Laboratory Manual for Physical Geology, co-authored by his son Charles (U. of Pittsburgh), was published by McGraw-Hill in early 2012. We hope his lab manual will continue to be available because our geology labs use it.
