Item Information

Title:
Abstract of the proceedings of the fourth session of the Association of American Geologists and Naturalists, extract
Description:
Two pages from "Abstract of the proceedings of the fourth session of the Association of American Geologists and Naturalists" extracted from volume 45, number 2 of the American Journal of Science and Arts, published in 1843. The extract describes a debate between Edward Hitchcock, Joseph Nicollete, William C. Redfield, and Henry Darwin Rogers regarding Louis Agassiz's glacial theory. Hitchcock notes that he is almost afraid to say anything more on the subject due to much misunderstanding of his previous reports on it, but states that he believes the phenomena of drift is the result of ice and water, though he is uncertain which is a greater force or what causes such action of ice and water.
