Abstract

In June, 1960, a 2-ft. post-Kansan peat deposit was exposed in a building excavation in Grinnell (Poweshiek Co.), Iowa. A Kansan gumbotil lies beneath the peat, and approximately 16 ft. of loess lies above it. Well-preserved wood and pollen of coniferous forest species are abundant. Because there is no overlying till, the deposit is tentatively classified as of Buchanan age.
