Fund Descriptions

Hugh E. McKinstry Fund

The Hugh E. McKinstry Fund was established in memory of Hugh E. McKinstry, an enthusiastic and loyal member, and a past president of SEG. He, along with his wife, Elizabeth, were very involved with SEG, SEG Foundation, and the economic geology community. Both were loyal and generous friends of SEG and will be truly missed.

Hugh E. McKinstry (1896-1961)
Elizabeth F. McKinstry (1903-1998)

All but the very youngest SEG Fellows and SEG Members no doubt remember well the late beloved professor of economic geology at Harvard University. He believed strongly in our Society as a positive force in maintaining high professional standards and impeccable ethics in the science and profession of economic geology. His wife Elizabeth (who was also a prominent economic geologists in her own right), kept in touch with a number of Hugh's former students, his former colleagues, and the geology community in Tucson until her passing in 1998. Specifically, she has conferred frequently during the past decade with Tucson resident Ernest L. Ohle, the first recipient of the Ralph W. Marsden Award, past president and trustee of the Society of Economic Geologists Foundation (SEGF).
