Centennial Ceremony of Prof. ThaHla (1913-2013)

Geology doctrine in Myanmar has been established in colonial period (1923) in the University of Rangoon as Department of Geology and Geography. In 1956, the Department of Geology was formed by Professor ThaHla who became constitutional rector of the university in 1961. For not forgetting his enthusiastic works to produce numerous geoscientists who have been leading the country’s resource industry, hazard assessment, environmental conservation and academic researches, MGS organized the Centennial Ceremony on 16th June 2013 in the University Campus.
