NGS Volume 2 Part 8


The Nebraska Geological Survey as now constituted has been in operation since 1891, but it has enjoyed state aid during the past four years only. Considering the size of the commonwealth and the limited appropriations for geological work, unusual progress has been made. Since no report covering the work of the first biennium was prepared it will be included incidentally in this paper. Briefly stated the Nebraska Geological Survey during the past biennium has devoted especial attention to the industrial resources of the state, prepared ten o! twelve reports in manuscript form, published eight reports completing volumes I and II, made extensive collections of industrial material, fitted an office with furniture and fixtures, finished certain maps, many drawings, photographs, and plates for succeeding reports, and has prepared an invoice and catalogue of all survey material.
