Abstract

Although for many years much has been spoken and written about the glacial deposits of Pleistocene age in Iowa, in connection with the meetings of this Academy and many other scientific organizations, there is as much interest in these deposits today as at any previous time. Your retiring President has chosen therefore as the subject of this address, "Contributions to the Pleistocene Geology of Iowa." It is my purpose to recall to your minds some of the geologists who have made contributions to the Pleistocene geology of Iowa, and insofar as the time at our disposal will permit to point out the significance of some of their contributions. For a much more complete presentation of the development of our present-day views regarding the glacial and interglacial deposits of Iowa you are referred to a paper accompanied by references which the writer prepared recently entitled "History of Investigations and Classifications of the Pleistocene Deposits of Iowa." This paper was published and distributed by the Iowa Geological Survey.
