Scope and content

The fifty- seven cubic feet of records which comprise this accession come from the Staff Library of the Geology Department and the personal collections of Professors Peter Eakins and Thomas Clark.

The first 47 cubic foot boxes contain reprints of geological studies by members of the department, their colleagues, or students. The remaining 10 boxes contain reprints selected from the library collection for their particular historical interest as well as files on the research and business connections of the members of the department. Within this last category, material compiled under the direction or
with the assistance of Dr . Clark includes the typescript of a 1932 Harvard PhD thesis by D. Fairbain; a field notebook by A.F. Banfield and correspondence between Clark and Wallace M. Cady concerning a thesis by A. Roth and a study to be prepared by Clark and Peter Eakins. The documents concerning Professor Eakins' activities conĀ­centrate on his work as a mining consultant, as director of the South Peru exploration in 1952-53, and on his involvement in exhibit planning for the 1972 Georama and Expo '67.
