Abstract

In a recent publication by President Van Hise it was stated that the data of geology have become so numerous that they are almost unmanageable. With this view all geologists will agree. Not many decades ago it was possible for a geologist to have a reasonably full and satisfactory knowledge of his own science, and, also, to be fairly familiar with the related sciences. Now it is impossible for any geologist to learn all the important facts about all the branches of his own science. Not only is this true, but no geologist can know all the discovered facts of the world, or even of his own country, concerning that branch of geology in which he may be a specialist.
