Born in Ohio, Albert Dickas earned BA and MA degrees from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio). He earned his PhD at Michigan State University and then worked in the oil industry for many years. He taught at the University of Wisconsin—Superior for thirty-one years, founded an environmental research center, and became involved in the industrial exploration for oil in the Precambrian strata of the Midcontinent Rift. He has led numerous field conferences, authored and coauthored more than thirty papers, and delivered presentations from Nova Scotia to Siberia—all on the subject of Precambrian oil and Precambrian rifting. Today he lives on the crest of Brush Mountain in southwest Virginia, where he continues to engage in research and plan travel excursions in his quest for new and interesting geo-sites on all of the seven continents.
