John Stockwell received his B.S. in geology magna cum laude at Yale in 1957. He was employed as an exploration geologist by BP Alaska and later Sohio from 1974 to 1981, working mainly on and in Alaska. After 1981 he remained in the Bay Area and eventually retired in 2002 from teaching high school earth science and chemistry. He now considers himself an amateur geologist who happens to have had some formal training and professional experience. He is a member of the board (K-12 programs) of the Northern California Geological Society, past president of North Bay Field Trips, and is currently Field Trips North chairperson for the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies. The past 10 years he has taken a considerable interest in thundereggs, collecting extensively and reviewing problems of their formation. These studies have led to a developing interest in acid volcanics. Mr. Stockwell resides in Berkeley.
