About the Author and the Publication (excerpted):
Frederick Byron Plummer, 1886-1947
Frederick Byron Plummer served The University of Texas faithfully and well from 1928 to 1947 as Professor of Petroleum Engineering and Geologist in the Bureau of Economic Geology. A host of former students will always treasure memories of his inspired teaching and generous interest in their welfare. His contributions to knowledge of the geology of Texas cover a wide range of subjects. The problems of Carboniferous stratigraphy and paleontology of central Texas were a continuing interest with him....The present report in a sense is a progress report of results of his research up to the time of his death. Had he lived it would have been revised and extended. However, it contains so much basic and detailed information that any future progress in this important area of Texas geology will be based on this work.
