Specola Guestbook: June 20, 1910 – Arthur L. Day — 2 Comments

  1. Br. Macke –

    Nice to see a geologist/geophysicist get recognition as a VO visitor.

    Just want to clarify the the Wollaston Medal is the highest award of the Geological Society of London. The first recipient was William “Strata” Smith, who received the Wollaston Medal in 1831 for surveying and preparing the first geological map of England and Wales.

    Arthur Day also received the Penrose Medal, the top award of the Geological Society of American, in 1947.
