Biggar, Norma

Norma Biggar graduated from Antioch College and went on to earn a Masters degree at the University of Alaska. She went to work for a consulting company, first evaluating the seismic hazards along the Alyeska pipeline and later evaluating seismic hazards in such far-flung places as Iran, Colombia, and Israel. The latest project was on the high-level nuclear waste project in Nevada, on which she worked for fifteen years from her home in Las Vegas. Upon retirement, her attention turned to hiking, dancing, propagating native plants, and compiling Roadside of Geology of Nevada.
