Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This album contains photographs of various geological formations, including columnar basalt, monoclinal ridges and folds, sandstone dikes, and exfoliated granite. Locations include New Jersey, New York, West Virginia, California (Lassen, Inyo, and Shasta Counties), Colorado (Garden of the Gods and Golden), Nebraska (Sioux and Banner Counties), and South Dakota (Big Bad Lands and the Black Hills). Photographers and dates are identified on only a few images. In one image (taken in Wilbur, New York) an outdoor advertisement for a performance of Uncle Tom's Cabin is visible on a shed.
Bailey Willis, a member of the United States Geological Survey, came to Stanford University in 1915 to succeed John C. Branner as head of the Department of Geology and taught here until his retirement in 1922.
