      Horace E. Shell

      Horace Edward Shell died on Nov. 24, 2002, at the age of 90. A descendant of
      early California Gold Rush pioneers, he was born on April 23, 1912, on the Shell
      Homestead near the old mining town of Rawhide, Calif., named before the advent
      of barbed wire, when enclosures for livestock were made with strips of rawhide.

      He was educated in Sonora Union High School in Sonora. He received a bachelor of
      arts degree in geology from UC Berkeley in 1938. He worked as a seismologist
      exploring for oil in Texas; Oklahoma; Wyoming; Alberta, Canada; Australia; and
      New Guinea. He was an award-winning photographer and a lifelong collector of
      cameras. He was a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, the
      American Association of Petroleum Geophysicists and of the Del Rey Fraternity.

      He is survived by his wife, Gwendolyn Dexter Shell of Davis; son, Thomas Daniel
      Shell and his wife Karen of Denver, Colo.; daughter, Susan Shell Winston and her
      husband Thomas of Wharton, Texas; and four grandchildren, Andrea Shell of
      Denver, Jennifer Winston of Austin, Texas, Steven Winston of San Antonio, Texas,
      and Janis Winston of Wharton, Texas.

      Memorials in his name may be sent to the Salvation Army.
