Richard Pugh (SX 1987) Richard N. Pugh has a BS and MST in Physical Science and was a high school science teacher for more than 30 years. He taught all the science courses and motivated a number of his students into continuing their science studies and becoming professional scientists. Pugh is a meteoritologist and archaeologist who has done field work in meteoritics throughout the west. He was instrumental in founding the Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at Portland State University in 2003, which has been funded by private donations and NASA grants since its inception. He will receive the 2011 Service Award from the Meteoritical Society this summer at a ceremony in Greenwich, England. Dick has published extensively in local and national journals on meteorites. In addition to Pugh's major contributions to description and analysis of meteorites, he is known for bringing this information to the public. In the past year, he has made more than 20 trips to small communities in Oregon and Washington, driving countless hours and miles to meet with these communities, visiting with schools and holding public talks at libraries and town halls. He also participates in outreach activities for students and teachers locally related to our chapter programs. Pugh joined Sigma Xi in 1987 and was responsible for holding the Columbia-Willamette chapter together for many years, serving as President from 1994-1996 and 2001-2005. He served as Vice-President from 2005-2008 and was always ready to jump in and pick up the reins when necessary to keep the chapter in shape.
