Through a discussion with John Bredehoeft, C.V. Theis recalls the early days of hydrogeology at the US Geological Survey. Together, they take a journey through Theis’ major discoveries, discussing their context, and the roles of the other important people that were involved at that time (Hubbert, Wenzel, Jacob, Meinzer, Thiem, etc.). We discover Theis’ personality in detail and he shares with us many professional and private anecdotes and stories that punctuated his life.
