Field Camp 1977

In 1977 the Geological Sciences Major included options in Geophysics, Geochemistry-Mineralogy, and Geology.  Geology and G&M required GSc 470, Introduction to Field Geology, during the academic terms and summer GSc 472, Field Geology.  A pre-camp cross-country excursion was available as GSc 471.  Most of these names are from the database of 1978 Geosciences alumni that, hopefully, is a proxy for 1977 field camp, although some may have attended a year earlier or a year later.  Some of these alumni, in addition, may have been geophysics option, so would not have attended field camp.  Thanks to Pierre Zippi and Mark Pawlewicz for additional names.
