Wayne Anderson, born in geode country in southeast Iowa, earned his Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. at the University of Iowa (writing a thesis and dissertation on Iowa geologic topics). He will complete a 37-year career teaching geology at the University of Northern Iowa with his retirement in the Spring of 2000. His research activities and the work of his students have added greatly to our understanding of the geology of eastern Iowa. In his many years of studying and teaching, Wayne has clearly developed a thorough understanding of the geology of the Iowa, and he has drawn on this wealth of information in his newest literary effort, to produce a very complete and accurate book on Iowa's geologic history.
