Dr. William J. Fritz was named a Geological Society of America (GSA) Fellow for 2014.

Society Fellowship is an honor bestowed on the best of the profession, in recognition of
their distinguished contributions to the geosciences, by election at the spring GSA Council meeting.

According to July 2014 issue of GSA Today magazine, Dr. Fritz was recognized for having trained many field geologists in the field geology courses that he taught, publishing several seminal articles that have helped us understand the geology of the Yellowstone hotspot, tectonic sedimentation in associated graben basins, and deposition of volcaniclastic and lacustrine sediments.
