Catherine King-Frazier
BS, Radford University



Catherine King-Frazer came to JMU from the NASA curatorial lab where she worked on lunar highland breccias. With interests in petrographic modes of meteorites, she went to the McMurdo Station in Antarctica to recover meteorites and conduct experiments relating to the nature of ice sheets and global climates.

Catherine was well known across campus and an advocate of women in geology. The Catherine King-Frazier scholarship was established in her memory to be awarded to the most promising new freshman geology major.
