Gustavus invites you to a public lecture at the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul on Monday, December 3, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the SMM Auditorium to meet and hear Rydell Professor William Fitzgerald, Ph.D., noted geochemist and one of the foremost experts on the chemistry of iron from an oceanographic and environmental perspective. His presentation is titled “Iron in the Oceans: What’s the Fuss About?” A reception at the Elements Cafe will follow the talk.
There is no charge for the event; however, seating is limited. So, advance reservations are requested online at gustavustickets.com beginning November 5. Contact the Office of Marketing and Communication at 507-933-7520 for further information.
As the Rydell Professor at Gustavus, Fitzgerald is team-teaching an oceanography course this fall. The Drs. Robert E. and Susan T. Rydell Professorship is a scholar-in-residence program designed to bring Nobel laureates and similarly distinguished scholars to the campus as a catalyst for enhancing student learning and teaching.
