Hello! I’m Dana Sheridan (a.k.a. Dr. Dana at the Cotsen Children’s Library at Princeton University), creator of Pop Goes the Page. After we finished the book, we will take a walk across campus to Guyot Hall, home of the Department of Geosciences. Their central office space is lined with display cases full of rocks, gems, fossils, and minerals. We will look at samples of pyrite courtesy of Laurel Goodell, manager of the undergraduate labs in geosciences.
Frederick Muller Schall, Jr. graduated from Princeton University in 1937 with a degree in Geology. He subsequently spent a year studying Geology at Cambridge University, England. The "Houston Chronicle" news hosts his obituary listing.
On Wednesday, Nov. 18th, the department was pleased to welcome back paleontologist Jack Horner, who gave a special seminar in Guyot Hall Rm 10, entitled "Dinosaur Evolutionary Patterns, or Why it was Good to Get Rid of the Princeton Paleontology Collection."
