The Life and Work of George William Stow, South African Geologist and Ethnologist

J. W. G.


SOUTH African geology has yielded many results of world-wide interest, including the extinct fauna of the Karroo and the Pateozoic glaciation of South Africa. The debt due to George William Stow, the pioneer in the discovery of both subjects, will now be paid more easily owing to the admirable sketch of his career by Prof. R. B. Young. Geologists would, however, have been still more grateful for this biography if it had included a table of contents, an index, and a bibliography.
