Earthquake Expert to Speak Tuesday


A geophysicist who has done extensive research on earthquakes will deliver this year’s Mondy-Carroll Lecture at Williams Baptist College. Dr. Oliver Boyd is set to speak on Tuesday, Feb. 16th, at 7:00 p.m.

Boyd’s lecture will be entitled “Earthquake hazards in the central and eastern United States,” and it will be held in WBC’s Sloan Center, room 101.

Boyd is a research geophysicist with the United States Geological Survey, and he serves as an adjunct professor with the Center for Earthquake Research and Information at the University of Memphis.

The Mondy-Carroll Lectureship, which deals with the natural sciences, was endowed by the late Dr. Nell Mondy of Ithaca, N.Y. Mondy was a Pocahontas, Ark., native who named the lectureship in honor of several late relatives from the Pocahontas and Walnut Ridge area.
