Dames [china, 1883, vol. 4, pp. 1 - 33] from Liau-tung, and Dr. Emanuel Kayser [pp. 34 I was impressed with the necessity of having the strati graphic sections studied in detail, and extensive collections of fossils made, in order that comparisons of value might be instituted between the Cambrian sections and faunas of the western portion of North America and the Paleo zoic sections and their contained faunas in eastern Asia. This project was held in abeyance for eighteen years, and had it not been for the support Of the Carnegie Institution of Washington it might not have been consummated. Dr. Bailey Willis has given, in the preface of volume I, part 1, of Re search in China, 1907, a brief statement of the events that led to the sending of an expedition in his charge and the securing Of data and collections by him and his associate geologist, Mr. Eliot Blackwelder. On the return Of Messrs. Willis and Blackwelder, I made a preliminary study Of the Cambrian fossils and submitted to them the results of the study bearing on the interpretation of the various geological sections in which the fossils occurred. These were included in their description and discussion of the stratigraphy Of Shan-tung, Shan-si, and Shen-si. Mr. Blackwelder also made a rapid reconnaissance of the southwestern portion Of the province of Liau-tung, Manchuria, and identified certain Cambrian formations, but did not find any fossils....
