From MiningFoundartionsw.org: Thomas Arthur Rickard had a significant influence on the mining industry through his editorship of the three principal mining journals of the English-speaking world from 1903 to 1929 and through his popular hooks on the techniques, history and romance of mining. In 1937, he wrote in the preface to his autobiography. Mr. Rickard was editor of The Engineering and Mining Journal from 1903-1905 and 1922-1929, of Mining and Scientific Press of San Francisco from 1906-1909 and 1915-1922, and of The Mining Magazine of London from 1909-1915.

Mr. Rickard wrote more than a dozen books about mining, including Man and Metals (1932), A History of American Mining (1932), Retrospect (1937), and The Romance of Mining (1944). He was honored with a Sc.D. from Colorado School of Mines in 1927 and with the „Gold Medal& #8223; from the Institution of Mining and Metallurgy of London in 1922.
