Abstract

Mr. President, members of the society, and guests: It is my pleasure to present Robin Brett for the Distinguished Public Service Medal of our Mineralogical Society of America. There is a remarkably close match between his lifetime of Public Service efforts, and a section in the "Description of the Award" that species: "extraordinary service to national or international science societies." This nomination is inspired by Robin's repeated and continuing excursions into national and international science with public ramifications, including NASA, NSF, AGU, IUGG, GSA, IGC, IUGS, USGS, and ICSU, where he has served us all in vigorous style. I should add that while pursuing a career with the USGS and NASA, Robin has produced a publication list that also establishes his credentials as a distinguished mineralogist and geochemist.
