Peter Gould was an Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus of Geography at Penn State University. Throughout his tenure at Penn State University, Gould received many awards including the Lauréat Prix International de Géographie Vautrin Lud, the Retzius Gold Metal of the Swedish Society for Anthropology and Geography, as well as an honorary Doctor of Science from the Universitaire de Strasbourg.[1][2] Dr. Gould was a main contributor to the quantitative revolution in the field of Geography.[3]


Born in 1932 in Coulsdon, Surrey, Peter Gould decided he was going to become a geographer at a fairly young age.[1] He attended Colgate University for his BA, and Northwestern University for both his MA, and PhD.[3]


Professor Gould is still well known for his work with spatial analysis, and mental maps.
