Title
1863. William Logan: The Geology of Canada
Abstract
In 1843, the Montreal-born William Edmund Logan (1798-1875) was hired to undertake a geological survey of Lower Canada and Upper Canada. The Geological Survey of Canada, based in Montreal from 1843 until 1881, evolved from this position. Logan served as the director of the GSC until 1870. In 1863, the GSC published "Geological Survey of Canada: Report of Progress from Its Commencement to 1863", which the author describes as being without doubt the most important Canadian scientific work of nineteenth century Canada. Logan was the premier author of this document.
