Biographical / Historical

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.
