ARCS Honolulu's East Iceland Connection

George Walker exhibit in IcelandThe ARCS Foundation name can be found in the oldest building in Breiðdalsvík, Iceland—on a koa bowl tucked atop a file cabinet that is part of an exhibit at the Breiðdalssetur Research and Heritage Center. The exhibit recreates the academic office of acclaimed University of Hawai‘i geologist George P. L. Walker, widely considered to be the father of modern volcanology. The bowl names him the Honolulu Chapter’s 1987 Scientist of the Year. The late Dr. Walker's international honors included Iceland’s Order of the Falcon (the equivalent of a knighthood) for revolutionizing understanding of the island’s geology.
