Dr. Theodore Klock Chamberlain, a retired oceanography and geology professor from the Warner College for Natural Resources, passed away Sept. 24 after a long illness. Dr. Chamberlain was an outstanding teacher, scholar, poet and philosopher and his legacy will live on through his inspired students and loving family. Dr. Chamberlain, a renowned oceanographer and a geologist, spent years doing oceanic research around the world and at the Chesapeake Bay Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He has led the Department of Geology at Colorado State University and spent the rest of his career of 38 years at the University teaching two of the largest undergraduate courses on campus.

Dr. Chamberlain loved teaching, and he passionately encouraged and inspired thousands of students into higher education, exploration, and spreading knowledge. Dr. Chamberlain was a scholar, a poet, and a philosopher; he left a wealth of publications and writings. With Dr. Chamberlain's passing away, the light that has enlightened the paths of thousands of students has dimmed, but Dr. Chamberlain's students will hold his torch to light other people's paths. Dr. Chamberlain's students and family are establishing the Theodore Chamberlain Scholarship in Earth and Global Resources.
