The Life and Times of Lawrence Wager

Lawrence Wager - "Bill" to his friends - was by any measure one of the most important geologists of his time. His discovery and studies of the Skaergaard Intrusion of East Greenland were a landmark contribution to igneous petrology, and his work, together with that of his students and colleagues contributed to some of the most basic concepts of magmatic differentiation.
