C.G. “Gil” Mull, who recently passed away, was not only a friend of Petroleum News, but a close friend of mine.
Starting in the mid-1980s, Gil helped me understand the geology he loved most, that of northern Alaska, where he loved to “pound rocks.”
Not only did he help map and interpret northern Alaska’s geology, but Gil was also a talented photographer and writer who captured much of the history around the discovery and early development of Prudhoe Bay.
He patiently edited many of my articles to make sure they were accurate and understandable to non-geologists.
On a personal note, in more recent years we talked about his eventual death and the hereafter. Our philosophical discussions toward the end had to occur in late morning or early afternoon when he was best able to talk as he fought his battle with a disease that ate away at his ability to communicate the musings and memories of a great mind.
Gil was a man who felt it was important to contribute, which is evident in all that he accomplished in his life, even after his official retirement.
Contained in this section are just a few of the articles Gil wrote or was featured in in Petroleum News.
He will be remembered.
