John Creasy (Emeritus)

unnamed

John Creasy was a Professor of Geology at Bates College from 1975 to 2014. John passed away in the spring of 2017.

John was an excellent mentor to all the students, faculty and staff in the Geology Department, giving needed advice but also letting us discover on our own how to navigate the waters of being a geologist. With his trademark great dry wit, steady and friendly personality, intense focus on always improving and tweaking his classes, and purposeful leadership as department chair, we all grew to rely on him.  We will miss him and his sage advice.
