Living with Nature's Extremes – The Life of Gilbert Fowler White

Gilbert Fowler White

Many readers will need no introduction to this combination biography and memoir of Dr. Gilbert Fowler White. Gilbert was an eminent, public-minded geographer, whose scientific contributions in theory and practice mattered to each of us. During his 70+ year career, Gilbert studied nature's extremes, the hazards they posed for humanity, and the political, scientific, and philosophical issues regarding their mitigation and effective societal response. He believed with a passion that any person can make a significant difference in this world. It only takes the determination to live one's life in cultivation of a talent or an idea that is useful, and then to present and advocate that idea to ensure its appreciation or adoption, in order to make a difference. Gilbert White was such a person. This publication is available from ASFPM for $15 per copy, which includes shipping – contact memberhelp@floods.org or call 608-828-3000.
