Joseph S. Cragwall, Jr., 59, has been officially named associate director of the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior. He has held the Survey's ‘number 2’ post in an acting capacity since February 1979, when he replaced William A. Radlinski, who retired after more than 35 years of federal service.

Cragwall joined the USGS in 1941 as a hydraulic engineer and became the Survey's chief hydrologist in 1974, responsible for the management of the Survey's nationwide water resources program involving the appraisal of the quantity and quality of the nation's surface water and groundwater resources.
