Bloomington World (Newspaper) - May 24, 1894, Bloomington, Indiana A i department of be ology. The first work offered in geology at Indiana University was by or. Richard Owen who was elected professor of natural philosophy and chemistry in 1863. Or. Owen was a distinguished scientist Well known at Home and abroad. In 1869 As state geologist he made the first geological Survey of Indiana. Prof. Owen was in 1870, instrumental in securing for the University the extensive geological Cabinet of his brother or. David Dale Owen. Or. David own and his Friend or. William Mcclure were engaged dung the greater part of their lives in making the collection. It contain Iii Over 85,000 l eing one of the largest collections of its kind in our country and served As a great advertise Niento for the school people at a distance knowing Little Ole of the institution than that it possessed the Quot Owen the Cabinet furnished Excel hint opportunities for the study of Quot , and although prof. Owen a As hindered by the Niu Viber of Kulij Clits he was compelled to teach and Ilie limited space which science was Given in the College curriculum of those Days he was Nevert Liless Able to teach geology As it Cou d be taught nowhere else in the West. In 1879 the departments of natural philosophy and chemistry were separated prof. Owen remaining at the head of the department of in Tural philosophy. He was now Able to give much More time to his favorite subject geology the other sciences holding a secondary place in his affections. Or. Owen continued at the head of this department until his resignation in 1879 when he was succeeded by or. Jordon who taught geology but whose special energies were directed toward biology. The most serious calamity that Ever befell the Deij Arment came in the fire of 8 when the Owen collection was totally destroyed work was almost abandoned owing to the want of room and material. In 1885, when or. Jordon became president of the University or. A. C. Branner was ducted i professor of geology and botany. Under or. Branner s direction the work was almost entirely Toi geographic the loss of the Owen Cabinet which had not then been replaced by other collections made it impracticable to teach Miner ology or pah ontology in a satisfactory manner. In 1887 or. Branner was granted leave of absence As state geologist of Arkansas. During his absence the instruction in the department was limited to a course of lectures by or. Jordon save one year during which a course in Miner ology was Given by or. Rettgar. Or. Branner resigned in 1890 to Actie get tie chair of geology at Leland Stanford or. Iii Hersity. He was succeeded by prof. Vernon f. Marsters with or. Claude e. Sieben Thal As assistant. Prof. Marsters has since remained at the head of the department and has succeeded in putting it on a firm basis with the other departments of the University. His object is to give an outline of the whole Range of geological study a physical and historical and above All things to instill in the student careful and systematic methods of study and to give insight into such problems As will be met in everyday life a to be preeminently practical and not theoretical. The department offers three years work the first year like the a Soond has two courses physical and historical. The physical course begins with Miner ology which continues through two terms. It includes lectures Labrador or and Field work. The student is expected to become familiar with most of the Bommon minerals and especially those of economic importance. The first term is devoted to the a to tidy of the Quot ores Quot Mich student being not tired to determine the comp of Ilion and name of the Ore their common lit during the a a end term Iii octet and Rook forming la Fame Sre studied and a re att motion is Given to physical pro Rte a so Oci ally to the crystallisation. The third term s work is in Eop nomic geology. Much emphasis is Given to the importance of the in tool Mineral resources of the thu flt states in particular and tie in general also the actual geological Structure of the Ore bodies origin production of Ore and the bearing of production upon our National growth. This connects the department with a subject of Universal importance and interest to the general student. The historical course is so arranged As to i Ive the student a Clear idea of the development and relation of Fossil organising from Early and Siipple forms to later and More Complex forms the relation of one Fossil group to another and the application of i Al ontological facts in unravelling economic problems. Such Points As Bear upon the evolution of organisms Are touched upon at various places in the course. This course begins in the tall with Donau Sicul and structural geology followed by Miner ology during the Winter term and palaeontology in the Spring term. In the second year the student choosing the physical course is Given Petrography. This includes lectures and Laboratory work i crystallography physical and optical Miner ology. For this work the Laboratory has been fitted with microscopes a Sec Tion Cutter and All necessary appliances for the microscopic study of minerals. For the student Choos ing the historical course problems in palaeontology form the basis of study. He is Given material for specific determination. The Laboratory has been supplied for this work with a Large collection of Type fossils and such material As is needed to give the student a detailed idea of the geographical and geological distribution of fossils. Field work is also a Pron intent feature of this year s course the student is required to run sections calculate strike and dip and construct maps according to Given Scales. In this he is made sufficiently familiar with Ordinary method. Of a old Quot girl investigation to Tako up Sut v. Y Ivory. In the third it end the student is exp a Ltd to Taico Soti. Problem collect his own fads and upon them pro Paie a thesis giving in detail the result of his year s investigation. Each year during tue Spring term a course for teachers in Miner ology or palaeontology is offered such As will give them a general understanding of the subject and help them to teach it in the High school. Much credit is due professor Marsters for his Earnest work in this department when he came to the University i the department was in a very poor condition his predecessor had been away on leave of absence and practically but one year s work was being offered there were no laboratories and but few specimens in Possession of the department and a these owing to Dis usage had to be re arranged before they could be of any advantage. However a Laboratory was fitted us and a three year s course arranged for. The attendance has steadily increased calling for the addition of an instructor who was elected at the beginning of this school year. As soon As conditions will permit professor Marsters Hopes to make some changes in the department two courses of study will be offered physical and biological and Laboratory work will be introduced into All their branches. Professor Marsters received his a. B. Degree from Acadia College Nova Scotia in 1887. He took Post graduate work and received his a. Degree at Cornell in 1889. While taking Post graduate work at Cornell he was appointed instructor in geology at that place and remained As such until called to the head of the department of geology at Indiana University in 1891. Professor Marsters is a member of Sigma Psi a scientific honorary society among Eastern schools the american geological society and the Indiana Academy of science with prof. J. P. Kemp of Columbia College he has made a petrographic Cal study of the eruptive rocks of Lake Champlain also engaged in a study of the traps of the triassic area of the United states and published several articles on the subject in the american geologist and elsewhere. In addition to these professor Marsters has published a number of articles on local geology both Here and in Nova Scotia. Or. Edward m. Kindle the instructor in this de it lament is a Grade Date of Indian Vaif Tristy class of 93. During 1889 he was Amici ated with the geological Survey of Arkansas. Both these professors Are Well liked by their students and have the Happ it faculty of forming warm friendships with them thus addin it ran interest to their work which Many professors fail to obtain.
