Gordon Browncompleted his Ph.D. degree in 1970 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, where he focused on X-ray crystallographic studies of olivines and chemical bonding in framework silicates. Following a year-long post-doctoral position at SUNY Stony Brook, where he developed high-temperature single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods, carried out crystallographic studies of returned Lunar samples from the Apollo missions, and studied Al/Si order-disorder in feldspars using neutron diffraction methods, he became an Assistant Professor of Geological & Geophysical Sciences at Princeton University. In 1973, he moved to Stanford University, where he is now the D.W. Kirby Professor of Earth Sciences...
