Stephen C. Jett (b. Cleveland, OH, 1938) holds an A.B. cum laude in Geology (Princeton 1960) and a Ph.D. in Geography (Johns Hopkins 1964).
He taught geography at The Ohio State University 1963-1964 and then at the University of California, Davis, serving thrice as Geography chair and becoming emeritus in 2000. From 1996, he was also professor of Textiles and Clothing, becoming emeritus in 2000. He has also taught or co-taught courses at other institutions, and he serves on the boards of various research organizations.
