A massive collection of Ordovician echinoderms has been accumulated primarily from northeastern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota but including material from other states; it is in process of being studied. A brief history of the inception of the study and the process of bringing the material together is presented. Individuals are named but only brief details are given. Primarily this is a report of a concentrated effort to produce a significant study of echinoderms from Middle and Upper Ordovician strata, the people involved and the methods of obtaining material.
