Professor Daly Returns from Samoa

Professor R. A. Daly '93, Sturgis Hooper Professor of Geology, returned to the University last Sunday from a successful field trip to the Samoan Islands, Several important discoveries were made, including the finding of positive proof than within geologically recent time the surface of the ocean has sunk approximately twenty feet. This has long been suspected by geologists but definite confirmation of the theory has been lacking until this discovery.

The purpose of the expedition was to study the volcanic formations and coral reefs of Samoa, under the auspices of the Carnegie Institute of Washington.
