Dr. John S. Shelton, recipient of the 1993 AGI Outstanding Contribution to the Public Understanding of the Geosciences Award, passed away on July 24, 2008. A geologist and a pilot, Shelton was well respected for his ability to capture earth science on film. As an educator, Shelton was passionate about teaching his students. In addition to the AGI Award, he also received the National Association of Geoscience Teachers “Neil Miner Award” for “exceptional contributions to the stimulation of interest in the earth sciences.” The first public exhibit of 33 of his large-format photographs, â€œAerial Portraits of the American Westâ€, is now on display at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park, CA.
