D. M. Nash, Jr. received the 1958 SEG Best Paper in Geophysics Award with Albert W. Musgrave, and G. W. Ehlert for their paper Directivity effect of elongated charges.[1]


D. M. Nash, Jr. was born in Dallas, Texas in 1926.

He served as a radio offcer with the U. S. Navy during World War II. After the wartime interruption he completed his college training in 1948, and from the University of Texas he received the degree of B.S. in Electrical Engineering.

Upon his graduation he was employed by the Magnolia Petroleum Company to work in their geophysical department. After he advanced to the rank of seismic party chief, he was transferred to the Socony Mobil Oil Company, Inc., for a brief period. He was afterward assigned to the geophysical laboratory of the Magnolia Petroleum Company for three years before he was given a position as a geophysicist in its West Texas district of Midland.

Mr. Nash was a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.[2]
