The Centenary of the Geological Society of London


UNDER the presidency of Sir Archibald Geikie, K.C.B., the celebration of the centenary of the Geological Society of London has been carried out with conspicuous success. While the proceedings throughout were characterised by an air of dignified gravity, a feeling of quiet enthusiasm pervaded the meetings. On no previous occasion have so many illustrious geologists been gathered together from all quarters of the globe, and a noteworthy feature in the assembly was the presence of many women who have achieved distinction in the pursuit of geology.
