Field Camp 1956

In 1956 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 1957 Geol Sci alumni hopefully contains the names of field camp attendees
, although some may have attended a year earlier or a year later.
