Wooster Geology Professor Frederick W. Cropp III (1932-2017)

August 11th, 2017

Professor Fred Cropp taught geology at Wooster from 1964 to 1997. He was an extraordinary teacher and, in his own words, “a cheerleader for geology”. Many, many Wooster students became geologists in response to his enthusiasm, energy and spirit. I was one of them. His obituary and memorial page is here.

    I was saddened to hear of the passing of Dean Cropp. What a special man he was! He was truly mentor of mine that I will never forget. I, however, was not geologist student of his. In fact I think I barely passed Geology 101! But I still have many of the notes and letters he wrote to me during my four years at Wooster. He had a way of connecting with students that made them feel special and loved during those very impressionable years. He truly made a different in this world! Dean Cropp, you will always have a special place in my heart! Rest in peace and love,
