1985 Maurice Ewing Medalist: K.O. Emery


  • Robert E. Stevenson,

  • K. O. Emery


Kenneth O. Emery is the consummate scientist in his chosen field; inventive, curious, imaginative, a leader, a listener, a teacher, an iconoclast, and the inveterate producer, all carried out with ingenuity and a warm, humorous yet constant personality. He is the friend one always appreciates, who is ready with counsel for every idea, who can think through nearly any question, big or small, and provide the logical brackets in which your concept is comfortably enclosed. For all of us, he stands high as the exemplary marine geologist of our time.
