History / Biographical Note

Biographical Note

Gilbert Van Ingen, geologist, paleontologist and professor of geology, was born in 1869 in Poughkeepsie, New York. He was an artistically gifted young man, a skill served him well in his career as a geologist and paleontologist, and that is on display in his field notes. He matriculated at Cornell University in 1886 where he became interested in geology before studying paleontology at Yale in 1892, and finally coming to Columbia in 1893 where he received his Bachelors degree. He remained at Columbia for eight years as a curator of geological collections under Professor J.F. Kemp.

In 1903 Van Ingen took a position at Princeton as an assistant in geology and curator of invertebrate paleontology. He was promoted to assistant professor of geology in 1908 and associate professor in 1921.

Gilbert Van Ingen died in 1925
