FROM the University of Colorado we have received a bulletin containing abstracts (of 500–1500 words each) of 108 theses for higher degrees conferred in 1930. A noteworthy feature of these abstracts is the evidence they afford of the predilection of advanced students of this university for regional studies, a circumstance attributable in part, perhaps, to the publication in 1927 of a series of university studies of local geology, botany, zoology, and social history. Of the 1930 theses, more than one-fifth were regional surveys: for example, “Colorado in the Civil War”, “History of a County”, “Vegetation of a Mountain in Arkansas National Park”, “Micro-zoology of Boulder Creek”, and so on.
