9781333433666: Contributions to the Geology and Paleontology of the West Indies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Contributions to the Geology and Paleontology of the West Indies
I left Washington during the latter part of January 1914, and spent the month of February and most of March in the islands of Antigua, Saint Bartholomew, Anguilla, Saint Martin, and Saint Christopher. While engaged in field work I received a great deal of help from the oficials of the respective islands and will particularly mention Sir H Hesketh Bell, then governor of the Leeward Islands, and T. L. Rox borough, then administrator of Saint Christopher. Rather large collee tions of fossils resulted from my e orts and they have now been com pletely or almost completely described and illustrated. Five papers are herewith presented; my own account of the fossil coral faunas is almost finished; Dr. Robert T. Jackson has nearly completed his memoir on the fossil echinoids; and Dr. Paul Bartsch intends to submit a paper on the fossil and living land Mollusca of the Leeward and Virgin Islands.
The accompanying papers and those nearly complete supply the foundation for the correlation of the difierent geologic events in the West Indies, and they will be followed by descriptions of local geologic details and an account of the general development of the region, in correlation with the geologic events that were taking place in the southeastern United States and Central America. Most of the manu script relating to local details and geologic interpretation is already written and might have been complete had the entrance of the United States into the World War not necessitated diversion to other duties.
