This is a companion volume to the Anthology of Editorials by Dr. B.P. Radhakrishna brought out as Memoir 5 1 of the Society in 2003. The current volume deals exclusively with biographical sketches and tributes to renowned earth scientists and scientists of India and other countries, sketches of public figures and benefactors with path-breaking contributions to our society and portraits of personal friends, colleagues and associates with exceptional qualities.This compilation of portraits of distinguished men is not only an essential reading for all geologists to recapitulate a part of the history of our science but also to learn a little more about the character and qualities that moulded the lives of some of our illustrious predecessors. All young scientists irrespective of their discipline, stand to+ benefit from going through BPR's writings to find inspiration in their own quest for excellence and originality.Even for the layman, these essays are of value and relevance in highlighting some of the major issues in geology in simple terms, and in acquainting them with some of the best minds that have shaped geological science in India and abroad as a part of the larger human heritage.
