Field Camp 1955

In 1955 the Curriculum (Department) of Geology-Mineralogy required summer Geologic Surveying (Geol 70) and Field Geology (Geol 72).  The Curriculum (Department) of Geophysics-Geochemistry required Geol 70 and Field Geophysics (GG 403).  This list from the database of 1955 and 1956 Geol Sci and Geophysics-Geochemistry alumni hopefully contains the names of field camp attendees
, although some may have attended a year earlier or a year later.
