Anton M. Dainty (1942 - 2014)


We were saddened to learn of the death, on August 15, 2014, of Anton Dainty. He was an accomplished seismologist who was best known for his work on seismic-wave propagation and for using seismic waves to monitor a nuclear test ban treaty. He passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly, in his home, at the age of 71. Anton had worked at the University of Toronto, MIT, Georgia Tech., NORSAR, Phillips Lab (U.S. Air Force) and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. After retiring from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency in 2012, he became an Editor for both the BSSA and PAGEOPH.
