The Drake quadrangle includes approximately 200 square miles, and lies between 100°15' and 100° 30' West longitude and between 47°45' and 48°00' North latitude. In general, the area is located in the north central part of North Dakota. This quadrangle is unique in that many ice-contact features are present within the area. These include kames, eskers, and crevasse fillings. It is not the intent of this paper to discuss every ice-contact feature present, but to bring forth the available data gathered by the writer concerning eskers and crevasse fillings, evaluate this information, and try to draw a conclusion as to the probable mode of origin of these features. It is also the writer's hope that some material included in this report may serve as a means for distinguishing these two types of ice-contact features from one another.
