Proceedings of the 6th Annual Institute on Coal Mining Health, Safety and Research, Blacksburg, Virginia, August 26-28, 1975. Foreman-WE, ed., Blacksburg, VA: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1975 Aug; :1-6
The Sixth Annual Institute on Coal Mining Health, Safety and Research will now begin. It is both an honor and a privilege as conference chairman to extend to all of you a welcome to the Sixth Annual Institute. I have served as chairman of this year's Institute following the sudden death of T. Carl Shelton, Jr. His death was a great shock to all of us. Carl was my friend and colleague in the Mining Engineering Department at VPI for many years. This year's conference is indeed part of the legacy of Carl's dedication in making each conference worth your time spent here on the VPI campus. To honor Carl Shelton's contributions, both to these conferences and to the Mining Engineering Department, we have initiated an annual award of a watch to a deserving senior student in Mining Engineering. Also, Mr. Louis Hunter is heading a drive for a T. Carl Shelton, Jr. Scholarship Fund. Louis would like to say a few words about this scholarship Fund.
