Abstract

To those earth scientists who have followed the revolutionary development of plate tectonics from its dawning, it may come as a surprise that Dan McKenzie can have done so much and still be young enough to qualify for the James B. Macelwane Award. Nonetheless it is so. He was born on February 21, 1941. He received his advanced education at King's College, Cambridge University, and was awarded a B.A. in 1963 and a Ph.D. in 1966. He became a Fellow of the college in 1965. He was fortunate enough to be a student in Edward Bullard's Department of Geodesy and Geophysics just in those exciting years when the validity of sea floor spreading was demonstrated. McKenzie was one of the first to realize the broader implications of the computer fitting of continents by Bullard and others which assumed that the drifting crust is rigid.
