Passing of Dr. M. Lee Allison


A message from NBMG Director and State Geologist:


It is with incredible sorrow to convey the terrible news of the passing of Lee Allison, the state geologist of Arizona. Lee was a good friend to many of us and a good friend to NBMG. He had a passion and boundless energy that inspired many, including myself. His passing is an incredible loss to the Arizona Geological Survey, the state of Arizona, and the entire scientific community. His countless contributions will live on for many years, as he leaves a lasting legacy of selfless dedication to the community of state geological surveys and beyond. He will be missed.
