The object of this paper is to record the occurrence of four large boulders previously unnoted. Their exact location is in a small ravine, near the middle of the northeast quarter of the southwest quarter of the northeast quarter of section 16, T. 72 N., R. 2 W., Huron township, Des Moines County, Iowa. This location is four and three-fourths miles northeast of Mediapolis and five miles northwest of Kingston. Des Moines County is in southeastern Iowa at the eastern end of the second tier of counties north of the Missouri boundary. Its surface is the dissected Illinoian glacial drift plain. Three glacial drifts are represented in the county, but it is believed that only the Kansan and the Illinoian occur in the vicinity of the glacial boulders under consideration.
