Professor J. B. Woodworth will give the third of the six Geological Museum lectures this afternoon at 4.30 o'clock, in the Geological Lecture Room of the University Museum. His subject will be, "Recent Studies of the Ice-Age in Eastern Massachusetts." Within the last decade great advances have been made in the exploration and understanding of the deposits of ancient glaciers which covered New England. Professor Woodworth will show by means of stereopticon views how geologists have been able to determine the position of the vanished ice-sheet at various stages of its retreat across Eastern Massachusetts. The various topographical features of glacial origin will be pointed out, and the relations of inland towns and harbors to the control exerted by local glacial deposits will be indicated. The lecture will be open to the public.
Professor W. M. Davis will give the fourth lecture next Friday, on "The Geological History of Niagara Falls."
