Herman W. Weddle Memorial Scholarship

Herman W. Weddle Memorial Scholarship

Herman Weddle was a geologist with Standard Oil Company of California. He ended his 33 year career in 1962 as District Development Geologist for the Northern Region. Herman graduated from University of California, Berkeley and started his career as a field geologist at a time when electric logs were experimental. He believed that regardless of technological advances in subsurface geology, it was always necessary for students to look at rocks. This scholarship was established in memorial to Herman by his son James Weddle. James wished to carry on his father’s support of students utilizing the repository to further their education.
