Geo Gathering Three MHC geoscientists will present their research at the 116th annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. The meeting, “Geoscience in a Changing World,” will be held November 7–10 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Approximately 6,200 geoscientists are expected to attend. Michelle Markley, associate professor of geology, will present “What’s Happening under There? Kinematics and Vertical Axis Rotation of Crustal Blocks in Oblique Divergence and Convergence.” Steven Dunn, associate professor of geology, will present “Stable Isotope Geochemistry Research Projects in a Petrology Course.” Amanda Tyson, laboratory director in the department of earth and environment, will present “What Is the Significance of AMS Fabric in Plutons? Initial Results from a Study of Magmatic Fabric in the Cadillac Mountain Intrusive Complex, Acadia National Park, Maine.” Tyson carried out the research with Markley, Morgan Terres ’06 and Phoebe Judge ’03.

Moving Day On Tuesday, October 19, the oldest house in South Hadley was moved down Route 116 from 40 Woodbridge Street to 28 Woodbridge Street, the 1788 home of Ruggles Woodbridge. His home, Sycamores, was a Mount Holyoke dormitory from 1915 to 1970. Each year 14 students, predominantly sophomores, and a housemother lived there, attended by a maid and a cook. Of the nearly 800 students who resided there many come back to Reunion to seek out their rooms and relive their days in Sycamores.
