Historical Note

The Department of Geology at Rice University was designed and organized by Dr. Carey Croneis in 1953. Dr. Croneis became the first Harry C. Wiess professor of geology before being named acting president of Rice then Chancellor in 1960 and 1961 respectively. John A. S. Adams, with Dr. Croneis, helped found the Geology Department and later served as Chairman of the Geology Department for thirty-four years. The Geology Department has recieved grants from the Welch Foundation and the United States Atomic Energy Commission, and worked with influential companies such as PeMex and Shell. Rice University's Geology Department, today the Department of Earth Science, continues to promote exploration of the earth, the atmosphere, and the evolution of the environment.
