This spring I completed a feature documentary for Weber State University. The film shares the history of the school through stories of its faculty, staff and students. One of the faculty members I enjoyed learning about was Walter Buss.
Buss taught Geology for many years at Weber State and was legendary for his "College on Wheels" bus tours. Outfitted with a chalkboard, projector and screen, the geology bus made its way past 5,000 miles of countryside and landmarks from Yellowstone to Los Angeles, and from Crater Lake to Glacier National Park. Students camped along the way and engaged in hands-on learning, on-site.
