GSA James B. Thompson, Jr. Distinguished International Lectureship
The lecture tours are made possible through a gift to the GSA Foundation by James B. Thompson, Jr., whose bequest
contributed to the endowment of two lecture tours by distinguished geologists, one a non-North American scientist
to tour academic and related institutions within North America, and the other a North American scientist to tour
foreign universities and geological institutions. Both tours are arranged under the guidance of GSA International.
