Biographical Sketch

William A. Kneller was born on April 7, 1929, in Cleveland, Ohio.   He received his A.B. in Geology from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 1951, his M.S. in Geology from Miami in 1955 and his Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Michigan in 1964.

After serving as a Geology teaching fellow at both Miami University and the University of Michigan, Dr. Kneller began his teaching career as a Geology instructor at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, and was an assistant professor of Geology from 1959-1960. In September 1961, when he was appointed to the faculty of the University of Toledo, the Geology Department was part of the Geography Department, and as one of his colleagues put it, “Dr. Kneller transformed the Geology Department from a pebble to a rock.” In only two years the programs were separated and developed into full-fledged courses taught by well-known scholars in the fields of Geography and Geology.  In these early days, Dr. Kneller recalled that the Geology Department’s annual budget was $1,100. Even at this stage of his academic career, Dr. Kneller proved to be adept at obtaining money for the program. He recalled the necessity to put in a wet lab in the Geology Department and the lack of money for plumbing.  “I told Bill Carlson [UT’s president] that we really needed the wet lab and we couldn’t wait until the following year to get the money for plumbing. Then he decided to give us the extra money for the plumbing.”

By 1966, Dr. Kneller proposed a master’s program in Geology for UT to the Ohio Board of Regents. The day the board approved the plan was “one of the happiest days ever in my career at the University,” Dr. Kneller said.  The Board of Regents singled out Dr. Kneller’s proposal for special praise, stating that it was one of the best-prepared proposals they had reviewed.

From 1961 to 1989, Dr. Kneller built, taught in, and chaired the Department of Geology.  One of his major contributions to the university occurred in 1988 when a $1.2 million dollar gift from the Nippon Electric Glass Co. in Japan established UT’s first fully endowed faculty chair in silicate science. The post began in September 1989 and was based in the Wilhelm Eitel Institute for Silicate Science and Ceramics Research.

The Eitel Institute focused on the research and study of silicates. Dr. Kneller was instrumental in founding the institute with grant money from Johns-Manville and funds that he had earned from various research consulting jobs. He and UT students and research personnel tested batches of powdery materials that Johns-Manville produced that were used to make the heat-absorbing tiles on the exteriors of the first space shuttles.  This work netted about $12,00 per year. Teams of UT researchers and graduate assistants also developed new treatments for sewage sludge and a method of turning cement kiln dust and fly ash into road building materials. The Institute also studied waste solidification, reactions in hydraulic binders and low temperature ceramic coatings for industrial materials.

In his laboratory in the basement of the Bowman-Oddy building, Dr. Kneller presided over coal experiments and canned samples of Ohio coal that he and his graduate assistants and researchers classified, tested, and analyzed. The work involved measuring moisture, volatile components, ashes and impurities in the samples and a coalmine smelt.

The Eitel Institute was just one of Dr. Kneller’s activities at UT. The National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, Columbia Gas of Ohio, Exxon, France Stone Co., the Ohio Coal Research Laboratory Association, Toledo Edison and the Ohio and Federal Highway Administration are just a few of the organizations that sponsored his research.  He published over 100 papers and articles and served as a consultant to many stone companies. He documented the effects of chert, a silica-based material, in concrete and developed non-toxic coating for various kinds of pavements.  Other research areas included industrial rocks and minerals, electron microscopy of mineral surfaces and concrete petrology.

One of Dr. Kneller’s more interesting science activities at the UT involved operating a seismic station for the detection of earth tremors that operated in the Department of Geology. Two seismometers monitored and recorded measurements of irregular earth movements. Dr. Kneller freely acknowledged that Toledo is in a “minor” earthquake zone, but he explained that the UT station served as an important adjunct to the seismic station at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor because it recorded low-energy earthquake waves generated from a seismic zone near Anna, Ohio, in Shelby County. The waves could not easily be recorded at Ann Arbor because the earth’s interior absorbed them, but according to Dr. Kneller, the UT station relayed information on earth movement in the area that could affect the Davis-Besse nuclear power station near Port Clinton.

Dr. Kneller enjoyed long affiliations with many professional and academic societies, including the Sigma Xi scientific honorary, which he helped start at the UT in the 1960s. He was also a member of Sigma Gamma Epsilon, a Geology honorary, and Phi Sigma, a biological science honorary. He belonged to the Geological Society of America, the Mineralogical Society of America, the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Electron Microscopy Society of America

Outside of UT, Dr. Kneller’s professional activities included extensive consulting experience. He consulted on the reinvestigation of the condition of the subsoil at the Health Service Building site at Eastern Michigan University, and was consultant to the Citizens Mutual Insurance Company in Lansing, Michigan.  He was the field geologist for the Olivier Mining Company in Northern Quebec, Canada; and consultant to the Edward C. Levy Company in Detroit, Michigan; the Homer A. Merritt Construction Company in Sandusky, Ohio; the Woodville Chemical and Lime Company in Woodville, Ohio; the Nicholson Concrete Company in Toledo; and the Tarbox-McCall Stone Company in Findlay, Ohio. A few of his other consultations included the City of Toledo; N-Viro Energy Systems; Trow Group of Rexdale, Ontario; Woodlawn Cemetery, Toledo; and Sun Refining and Marketing Company.  For many years Dr. Kneller served as Research Advisor for the NSF Student Science Training Program in Scientific Research for High Ability Secondary School Students, conducted many Geology Field Camps, and directed dozens of graduate student theses.  When he retired from the university in 1989, he said, “My years at the University of Toledo have been wonderful, and I’ve always tried to do everything in a positive way.”

On July 14, 1951, Dr. Kneller married Olga Kanareff and the couple had four children:  Karinlee, Gregory John, Ellen Kay and Kurt Tihon. His daughter Karinlee and his son Gregory John worked with him on geology projects.

Dr. William Kneller died in Toledo September, 2002.
