Abstract

The Historical Preservation Committee (HPC) was established to continue the preservation of important artifacts, instruments, and documents that had previously been part of the SEG Geoscience Center which was closed in 2009. Despite its relatively brief existence, HPC has completed several projects and others are moving forward. Exhibits detailing various aspects of the history of applied geophysics have been created at various locations. The first, at the University of Oklahoma, includes documents by and about John C. Karcher, a graduate of that university. The exhibit is in OU's Sarkey's Energy Center, part of the ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics, which is also the home of the Oklahoma Geological Survey. The second exhibit is at Oklahoma State University in the Noble Research Center, Boone Pickens School of Geology. A third exhibit, the vintage gravity instruments known as the Robert M. “Ivy” Iverson Collection, is on display at Fugro's offices in Houston thanks to a partnership between SEG, the Geophysical Society of Houston Museum Committee, and Fugro Gravity and Magnetic Services.
