Hi, my name is William Mor
As a kid, I was not much interested into sports, I was more absorbed into studies and researching. For many years I was also home-schooled.
I graduated from Harvard University in 1869, with a bachelor's degree. As of 1870, my interest turned to the study of land forms and the publication of "The Rivers And Valley of Pennsylvania ", which led to his finding of the cycle of erosion.
After my retirement in 1912, I served as a visiting lecturer to many universities, devoted much time to writing, an field studies. taught at Harvard University from 1876 to 1912. I described the action of rivers in the shaping of landscapes and developed the concept of the Davisian cycle of erosion.
I was married thrice, and unfortunately lost my wife(s) twice. (M. Wyman, Ellen B. Warner, and lastly his surviving wife, Lucy T. Tennant.) Sadly, on February 5, 1934, in Pasadena, California, I passed away, a few days before my 84th birthday. Though,myi legacy lives on in geomorphology, and advanced theories in scientific racism.
I had apassion for science and studies. Iinfluenced others such as Charles Cotton, Jovan Cvijic, Walther penck, and Hans Henrik Resusch. I made an impact on academic learning in the late nineteenth century and took full advantage of the new developments. The progress in physical geography as a whole and the part I played in it may be judged from my objective, methods and international impact.
