AEGSF is sad to announce the passing of longtime member John Williams

It is with a sad heart that AEG announces the passing in early July of one of our strongest supporters and AEG Association Past President, Dr. John W. Williams.

Dr. Williams was an active AEG member of the San Francisco Section/Chapter, professor of engineering geology and Department Chair at San Jose State University (1976 – 2010), and former AEG National President (1988). Dr. Williams also served as the Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG) President and a founding Officer and President of the Engineering Geology Foundation (1996), now the AEG Foundation.

Additional information on Dr. Williams will be shared during our Annual Meeting in San Antonio and future issues of the AEG News and EEG Journal.
