Tim worked extensively on the project that brought in the Tektite collection of Virgil Barnes
. He inventoried all the specimens, created a database and helped to develop the Tektite portion of the IMPACT:TEXAS educational CD.
Tim Gibbons was sponsored by the Geology Foundation
of the Department of Geological Sciences at UT Austin, through the
Thomas and Ray Burke Student Job Program, The Barnes family and the Susan Vaughan Foundation.
Comment: Tim became engrossed in the tektite project and made sure that we produced a first rate document about these specimens. His database will be searchable on line.
Tim graduated and continued into graduate school at UT Austin. He completed his MS in geology and then went to work at El Paso Exploration and Production Company.
