As a man of science and a man of the cloth, George Hemingway lived a life that delved into fact and faith. A biological oceanographer who was also an Episcopal priest, he found the two divinely tied together. “Science is an orderly, structured way of knowing. For me, as a Christian, science contributes to the self-revelation of God’s order and plan,” he said in a Union-Tribune story published in 1996. Mr. Hemingway, a seagoing research scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego ordained in 1985, died Nov. 8 at his home in Nehalem, Ore., after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 75. He joined Scripps in 1966. As a scientist there for more than 30 years, Mr. Hemingway was highly regarded for his contributions to the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI), a marine research program that is considered to be one of the best in the world.
