Andrew Gibb Maitland was a geologist and authority on underground water in Western Australia (WA) for around thirty years. Prior to this he worked on the 1888 Geological Survey of Queensland. As Western Australia's Government Geologist, Maitland established the Geological Survey of Western Australia, located water bores between Geraldton and North West Cape, surveyed and mapped the Pilbara region and parts of the Kimberley.

Maitland also received numerous other honours and awards including the Mueller Medal from ANZAAS (Australian and New Zealand Association for the Advancement of Science).
