An article on Ruth Simon is in the November/December 2006 issue of
the Seismological Research Letters, a publication of the
Seismological Society of
America.

Heroines: Ruth B. Simon Ruth was working at Lamont Observatory
during my first year in graduate school.

It reminded me of the manual that she wrote: Earthquake
interpretations : a manual for reading seismograms, which I haven't
thought about since my graduate schoold days. My professional
seismology work only involved local and regional seismograms, mostly
from southern Alaska, so I think I'll look up her manual to help with
interpreting the seismograms that I typically record on my AS-1 system.

The article also included a useful link to a web site for finding
library materials. That's a useful site of which I was unaware. Use
this link to see if there is a copy of her manual in a library near
you: http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/top3mset/f421589db9985f18.html

Cheers,
