GEOLOGY AS A PART OF A COLLEGE CURRICULUMH. S. Williams, 1892 The demand for scientific studies as a part of the college curriculum is felt by all those who have to do with the provision of higher instruction for American youth. The reasons for this may be various, but a fundamental reason is found in the tendency among the American people in particular, and in this age in general, toward practicality in all things.
