Thomas M. Bee
(1951-    )

Geologist Thomas Michael Bee was born February 17, 1951. Beginning in 1977, he was the proprietor of the Topaz-Mineral Exploration dealership in Grand Haven, Michigan. He began advertising in the Mineralogical Record in 1978, specializing in mining, geology, minerals, mineral books and exploration, especially in items from Michigan where he has lived all his life. He also branched out into other fields including sports, antiquities, and maps, and sold specimens for several years on eBay.

For some time in his younger years he was on the faculty of Grand Valley State College (now University) in Allendale, Michigan. In recent years he has been plagued by health problems and was periodically hospitalized; he closed his eBay auction site in 2007, but he still operates his business on a limited scale (no lists), from his current address at 18754 N. Fruitport Road, Spring Lake, Michigan 49456.
