Biographical History

David Bright Reger (1882-1958) was the Assistant Geologist for the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey from 1911 to 1930. As a geologist and paleobotanist, Reger was known for describing the geology of several West Virginia counties, including Randolph county, home to Fossil Tree Park. After Reger’s description of the Tygart Valley Petrified Forest, the state designated this area as a place of historic interest.
