Caltech Professor Emeritus Receives Roebling Medal

Deborah Williams-Hedges
Former heavyweight boxing champion and dog-sled driver Peter Wyllie is adding a new accomplishment to his list of achievements—he has received the highest United States award in mineralogy. Wyllie, now a professor of geology, emeritus, at the California Institute of Technology, is the 2001 recipient of the Mineralogical Society of America's Roebling Medal, which is awarded for "scientific eminence as represented primarily by scientific publication of outstanding original research in mineralogy." The only other Caltech faculty member to receive this medal was Linus Pauling in 1967.
