Administrative History:

Hubert C. Lambert, a son of Isaac Lambert and Flora Cottrell, was born in Farmington Utah on January 21, 1916. Lambert received a Bachelor's Degree in 1940 and Master's degree in 1941 from the University of Utah. From 1941 to 1945 he was Party Chief and Area Engineer for the State Engineer's Office. From 1945 to 1946 he served in the U. S. Army. Lambert taught Geology at The University of Utah 1947-49, Weber State College, 1949-52, and Brigham Young University, 1960-72. He also did Adjudication work for the Utah State Engineer's Office from 1949-65. Lambert was Deputy Utah State Engineer and Utah State Engineer from 1965-73. Lambert served as the Western State Engineers representative on the basic data co-ordinating committee of the U.S. Geological Survey. He was a member of the Utah Academy of Arts, Science and Letters, and Engineering Committee of Upper Colorado River Commission and Ad Hoc Advisory Committee (Washington D. C.), and Water Resources Council (Washington D. C.). He was a member of the Interstate Conference on Water Problems, where he was the Secretary-Treasurer in 1969 and Chairman in 1971-72. The members consisted of state officials administering water throughout the fifty states. He was a member of Sigma Xi National Honorary, Scientific Fraternity, and a charter member of the Utah Geological Society. He served as adviser to the Wasatch Geozoic Society of Salt Lake City, which was an organization of Lamberts former students who meet together to continue the appreciation and study of Geology. He died in Ogden on March 5th 1973. For more information see his obituary in the Ogden Standard-Examiner, March 6, 1973. Additional information may be found in Men of Achievement, 1974.
