Ever wonder who the key figures are in disaster science and emergency management? One professional organization has provided a fine example in the form of short bios of key persons.
The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), provides an Oral History Series that consists of booklets on key figures in the development of earthquake science and seismic safety. Presently, 21 reports are available in this series.
One can download and read them, at no cost, but not print them off. If you want to order one, most of the reports are available at the cost of $15. Go to the EERI website noted above to order them.
