F&M Students Visit the Oil Patch in Houston The Houston trip grew out of a casual conversation between Zeshan Ismat and Dave Lehman ‘68. Zeshan noted how students from the eastern U.S. have almost no exposure to the energy industry, except for the generally bad rap it gets on environmental issues. She mused that our students would learn so much if only they could go to Houston and meet some of the players in the ‘oil patch’. This was the just the impetus Dave needed.

F&M Alumni College at Red Lodge, Montana For a week in August not long ago, F&M faculty and alumni explored the geology and ecology around Red Lodge, Montana. The group stayed at the YBRA field station, located high in the hills overlooking Red Lodge. Accommodations were rustic but beautiful, the food was excellent, weather fantastic, and the scenery magnificent.

F&M Geology first graduate found The Founders Society recognized one of the F&M Geology Department’s earliest students in a previous newsletter. We highlighted the long career of Jerry Wermund ’48, noting that he was the only living person from those earliest days. Imagine our surprise and delight when we received a letter from John R. Mills, class of 1947, announcing that he was actually quite alive and well and living in Australia!
