About This Publication (excerpted)
"This history of geology at The University of Texas was prepared for the dedication of the new Geology Building, November 1967. It is a brief history; many details have been omitted. The names of most graduates and some faculty will not be found. The mission was to summarize some important landmarks in Geology at The University of Texas and to describe the personalities and personal relationships that explain many of the decisions that have brought us to the present. I propose a toast to those who have made us what we are."----- Keith Young
The frontispiece is a photograph of the Old Main Building taken in about 1901, and the plate depicts the geologic rig of W. B. Phillips, first Director of the Bureau of Economic Geology, and the first car that the Bureau owned, a 1-cylinder Brush.
