Ed regarded his election to NAE in 1989 as his highest honor. His NAE citation reads: “For significant and outstanding advances in several fields of geophysics, as well as his clear transmission of these advances to students and colleagues.” Ed always appreciated the support of his colleagues, but he was especially grateful for the encouragement and understanding of Courtenay, his wife and companion for 63 years. Ed took great pride in his four children: Becky Vanderslice, Marie Jamieson, Coco Forte, and Duffie White, and his seven grandchildren.
