Biographies

John Wilkinson was an internationally distinguished classical igneous petrologist and master of the polarising microscope. Having completed his PhD at Cambridge he was appointed to the University of New England where he spent more than 30 years. Here he initiated a career-long program of petrological research on igneous rocks, mainly from north-eastern New South Wales, covering granites, serpentines and especially Tertiary basaltic lavas and their contained mafic and ultramafic inclusions. His petrological and geomechanical investigations of pyroxenite and related xenoliths revealed differentiation processes in melt bodies at mantle depths that potentially created great diversity in derivative magma compositions. The mineral Wilkinsonite was named in his honour in 1990.
