During the November 1, 2015 national meeting of the Geological Society of America, Dr. Glenn Stracher’s story was told by the GSA president. The meeting was held in Baltimore, Md. And over 8,000 people were registered to attend. Though Dr. Stracher could not attend the event, he was there in spirit and was represented by friends, colleagues and former professors during the presentation. Congratulations to Dr. Stracher on his most recent achievement.
