About the Contributions to Geology Publications (excerpted)
These works include "shorter papers of which...usually one volume per year is published, the present volume being the fifth of the series. Each volume of the "Contributions" bears a bulletin number and is thus a part of the series of The University of Texas bulletins issued from the Bureau of Economic Geology.

The 1932 volume...has been issued as a memorial to Dr. Johan August Udden and is published from funds generously contributed by his many friends to the Johan August Udden Publication and Research Fund. The great service to the geologic sciences rendered by Dr. Udden make this volume a most fitting memorial to his life and work..." -- E. H. Sellards, 1932
