Leon “Lee” V. Langan, MED ‘99

As a dedicated, long-standing Fellow of The Explorers Club, Lee Langan faithfully served on the Board of Directors for six years without missing a single meeting. Langan started out by taking on leadership roles within his Northern California Chapter. He went on to bring his member-focused approach to the entire organization by serving on the Membership Committee, Grants Committee, Ethics Committee, and Executive Committee. He is currently the Editor of The Explorers Log and Chair of the Publications Committee, which provides oversight for The Explorers Journal and Chronicle & Roster. When a Board member, Langan wrote two reports on the relationship between The Explorers Club and Morocco; he also carried Explorers Club Flag 139 to the Mayan ruins of Palenque. 

Langan’s first field work was exploration; on a Coast and Geodetic First-Order Triangulation Survey team he measured the West during college summers. As a graduate geologist he sought uranium in southern Utah. After military service and Stanford, he spent a decade introducing quantum-electronic devices to scientists and explorers worldwide, the proton free-precession magnetometer and atomic clocks. Then he founded a unique company, Environmental Measurements, Inc., to measure air quality using remote sensing and moving measurements around the world. Thereafter he pursued the production of pocket-size portable measuring tools and expanded an interest in applying non-invasive geophysics to archaeology.
