Jack Kallmeyer receives the Strimple Award

Each year the PS presents the Strimple Award to recognize outstanding achievement in paleontology by amateurs (someone who does not make a living full-time from paleontology).

This year we are pleased to report that the Strimple Award recipient is Jack Kallmeyer. Jack is the President of the Dry Dredgers Fossil Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to working with professionals and coauthoring papers in professional journals, Jack has been instrumental in the continued success of the oldest fossil club in the United States. Jack will be presented the Strimple Award during the PS Awards Banquet to be held at the Geological Society of America Annual meeting in Indianapolis, 4-7 November 2018. The Strimple Award could not have been given to a more deserving person. We congratulate Jack on this accomplishment.
