Head On Tap

May 6th, 2011

The piece on Professor of Geological Sciences Jim Head '69 PhD as an accomplished and prolific beer aficionado brings back memories of his introductory planetary geology class in the fall of 1982 ("Pressing On," Elms, March/April). Not only is he a wonderful lecturer, Professor Head was a terrific section leader. Although I learned a lot about the planets, I most recall the evening that Professor Head challenged us students in his section to find the lunar module in a photo of the surface of the moon that had been taken from the command module. I found the correct spot, and won a six-pack of beer as my prize!
