I am honored that Konrad Krauskopf asked me to serve as his citationist for the 1994 Mineralogical Society of America Distinguished Public Service Medal. I have known of Konnie since I was an undergraduate student, but we didn’t meet until 1972 during my interview trip to Stanford University. I was somewhat in awe of Konnie when I first met him. He took me on a brief field trip to the Coast Range west of Stanford, which helped convince me that I should leave the relatively flat and geologically uninteresting surroundings of Princeton, New Jersey, for the geologically spectacular and earthquake-prone Bay Area. After 22 years as his Stanford colleague and friend, I am still in awe of Konnie because of his accomplishments, his work ethic, and his distinguished service to the public, for which he is receiving this medal.
