Kenneth G. Hatfield
Ken received his B.S. in Geological Engineering from Michigan Tech in 1950.
His first position following graduation was with the US Atomic Energy Commission where he was assigned to field camp in the Lukachukai Mountains. Ken dedicated thirty years to the mining industry specializing in mineral exploration. During that time, he also worked a short (two-year) stint in uranium production.
Following retirement from industry, the unexpected invitation to teach at a university allowed him to maintain an active role in the profession of his choice. Ken is now retired from Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
