Abstract:

"William O. Field is recognized as the father of modern glaciology in North America. He began his career with major contributions in the field in the 1920s, and was its premier archivist until the 1990s. His life, travels, and work are narrated in his own voice in this oral biography, compiled by C. Suzanne Brown. Bill also speaks through his camera, which was a tool both of his important scientific contributions and of his instinctive ability to capture history being made all around him. Bill documents his life - and thus change - with his camera."--BOOK JACKET.
