Department of Geological and Geophysical Sciences Records

The records document the department from its 19th century origins to the recent past with departmental files, faculty files, faculty meeting minutes and visual materials. In Series 2, a variety of materials document significant figures in the department such as Arnold Guyot, Richard Field, and William B. Scott, as well as curriculum development and related matters. A consistent run of faculty meeting minutes in Series 4 provides a detailed picture of the department’s development over the course of the 20th century. Series 3 and 5 contain photographs, slides and film that document many of the department’s expeditions and excavations in North America—primarily in the American West. The collection also includes the records of the defunct organization the American Institute of Geonomy and Natural Resources.
