UNDER the title “American Old and Middle Tamary Larger Foraminifera and Corals” (Get Soc. Amir., Mem. 9; 1945), Dr. Thomas land Vaughan and Dr. John West Wells have produced a notable contribution to sciepce. Part 1, “American Paleocene and Eocene Larger Foraminifera” (pp. x+175+46 plates) is by Dr. vaughan; Part 2, “West Indian Eocene and Miocene Corals” (pp. iii+25 + 3 plates), is by Dr. Wells. It is a far cry from the brief list of oraminiferal and coral species published by Matley in 1932 (Geol. Mag., 69) from the Scotland Beds of Barbados to this splendid double monograph by two well-known specialists on their respective groups.
