Biographical Note

Eiler Henrickson ‘43, Carleton College Charles L. Denison Professor of Geology emeritus.  Carleton College Faculty Author; Carleton College Alumni Author.  A three-sport, nine-letter athlete as an undergraduate, Eiler served as captain of the wrestling squad, played football and ran track. He was undefeated in dual wrestling meets and in tryouts for the U.S. Olympic team. Henrickson was elected to the Carleton College “C” Club Hall of Fame in its first such ceremony and in 1986 was named to the Minnesota Wrestling Hall of Fame.  Eiler taught geology at Carleton from 1946-87 and also coached the Carleton wrestling team for 12 seasons. In 1957 he led the squad to the Midwest Conference Championship, beating nationally ranked Cornell College for its first conference defeat in 26 years. He was called back to coach the 1975 season and again in 1984, at the age of 63. His academic career was even more spectacular. His 1949 discovery in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula of the first uranium in the United States outside the Colorado Plateau made the front pages of newspapers all over the world. His 41-year tenure at his alma mater included serving as department chairman, and emphasizing and implementing field trips for students as an integral part of their education. Annual student field trips to Alaska, his favorite place, were one of these accomplishments. Those field trips are still an important part of the geology major today.
