Recent Faculty Activity
Dan Barker's biggest event of the year occurred on Sep tember 5, 1965, when he and Barbara became the proud parents of Marian Rebecca (Molly), their "first addition." Dan recovered in time to take over as freshman geology lab coordinator when classes started and also taught the under graduate petrology course and graduate courses in igneous petrology and thermodynamics of geological processes. He was
busy during the year setting up the laboratory for rapid analysis of rocks and minerals using atomic absorption spec trophotometry, and he continued to organize other equipment for experimental petrology. He supervised two Master's theses in the Llano Region. Dan attended the GSA meeting in Kansas City and the AGI short course on feldspars at Lawrence pre ceding the meeting.
In June the Barker family drove to New York and Maine to visit relatives. During the rest of the summer, Barbara will cut grass and flowers, while Molly will cut teeth and "just grow." Dan is finishing up his research on quartz-feldspar intergrowths and beginning a long project on the origin of feldspathoidal syenites and phonolites, which is supported by a grant of $24,000 from the National Science Foundation.
Bill Behrens does his teaching and research at the Marine Institute at Port Aransas, although he makes frequent trips to the main campus in Austin. He is in charge of the seminar program for the Institute and the summer course in marine geology, as well as regular marine geology and research courses, during the academic year. He attended the annual GSA meeting in Kansas City in November, and his paper, "Recent Emerged Beach in Eastern Mexico" appeared in Science last fall. The Central Power & Light Company recently awarded Bill a grant of $12,500 for investigation of the life history and ecology of Serpulidae (reef -forming marine worms) in Texas coastal waters.
Charlie Bell attended the GSA annual meeting in Kansas City last fall and the AAPG meeting in St. Louis this year. He also conducted a couple of field trips for graduate students through central Texas from Austin to Del Rio. During the school year he taught historical geology, stratigraphy, and advanced courses in Paleozoic biostratigraphy and paleon tologic techniques. His review of the book, Photography for Scientific Publications, was published in the December 1965 issue of Journal of Geological Education. During the current summer Charlie is supervising the research of seven graduate students, several of whom are mapping Paleozoic rocks on the flanks of the Llano uplift. His activities and the field expenses of his students are supported in part by grants from the Ge ology Foundation.
Charlie and Phoebe had an exciting Christmas season high lighted by the marriage of their son David to Linda Green on December 27.
Bob Boyer has gradually become an indispensable worker both locally and nationally in the rapidly growing field of earth science education in the secondary schools. He was em ployed half-time last fall to edit the Field Study Guides for the national Earth Science Curriculum Project; he co-authored the ESCP Reference Series pamphlet on Film Strips and Transparencies with Bill Matthews, and he published an article on education in earth science for teachers in the Journal of Research in Science Education. Bob also produced a series of 24 short papers and accompanying transparencies on earth science topics for C. S. Hammond & Company, and he obtained
