Administrative / Biographical History

Certain items of Geikie family correspondence were photocopied and microfilmed as were a number of letters by Charles Darwin. The former consisted mainly of letters from John Somerville Geikie and William [Geikie] from Sarawak and Singapore and include geological observations (John Somerville Geikie later pubished  A List of Sarawak Minerals ). The latter partly concermed James Geikie's publication,  The Great Ice Age .
