Bigsby Medal

HONORS

Awarded by the Geological Society of London:

In 1877 Dr. Bigsby gave to the Society a sum of 200, the interest of which was to be devoted to providing a medal to be given biennially, preferentially to one who had studied American Geology, "as an acknowledgment of eminent services in any department of Geology, irrespective of the receiver's country; but he must not be older than 45 years at his last birthday, thus probably not too old for further work, and not too young to have done much." The medal is struck in gold.
Awarded annually starting in 2005.
