Biographical Note

Donald F. Saunders and Martin J. Davidson are both dedicated scientists who studied many facets of surface geochemical exploration for petroleum.

Donald F. Saunders, born in 1924, received a B.S. in Chemistry in 1946 and his PhD from the University of Wisconsin in physical chemistry in 1950. He worked for Texas Instruments for 30 years working in projects as diverse as seismic events, lunar geologic composition and measurements, remote sensing, serial gamma ray spectral and geochemical data, and the commercial utility of satellite imagery.

Martin J. Davidson, born in 1924, received a B.S. from Alfred University in ceramic engineering and glass technology in 1948. He received his MBA from New York University in 1950 and his PhD in economics from the University of Houston in 1967. Davidson worked for Sylvania Electric Products, National Union Radio Tube Corporation, Crown Central Petroleum Corporation, Davidson Geochemical Oil Company and NASA, but the majority of his career was spent in academia. He was an Instructor in Economics at the University of Houston from 1963-1967. From 1967 to 1989, he was a Professor of Economics at the University of North Texas and continues to be Emeritus Professor of Economics.
