David Cole '52
David Cole graduated from Mines in 1952 with a professional degree in mining engineering and in 1956 with a master’s degree in mining engineering. After a long career in uranium exploration and the mining business, he retired as president of the Colorado Mining Association with 25 years of service. Cole died in 2016, but his legacy will continue at Mines because a significant gift commitment from the David R. Cole charitable lead trust is making scholarships possible for Mines undergraduate students with a preference for those interested in mining or petroleum engineering.
