Burton Wilbur Adkinson, Clark University


The author and his companion Mr. Van K. English devoted the summer field season of 1941 to mapping and interpreting glacial features in a portion of the Cabinet Mountains in western Montana. The story of alpine glaciation and post-glacial adjustments within the region are covered in this dissertation. The record of cordilleran glaciation is presented in a separate dissertation by Mr. English.
