Notes for 4 lectures on the 'Volcanic History of Britain', given to the Royal Institution in 1886. Sir Archibald Geikie looked at the emergence of types of geological formations against a geological timeframe and how they have been affected by various processes, especially the action of volcanoes and materials produced by them, within the natural world. He used examples from numerous locations from different parts of the British Isles.
Seawell, a former pupil of Ewart's, writes as a teacher of biology at a State Normal School in Warrensburg, Missouri, where he has recently been conducting general botany and zoology research. In particular he has been investigating the ecological relations of the life-forms of a series of small freshwater lakes in the area. He would like to know how he might go about studying for the degree of Doctor of Science from the University of Edinburgh.
Kerr apologises that he is unable to provide Ewart with a copy of the University of Glasgow's Natural History Department syllabus, as such a thing does not exist. He describes some aspects of the course and complains that ten weeks is an insufficient period to teach the Zoology course. He hopes that one day a satisfactory course in Zoology for medical students is devised.
Fleming writes to inform Ewart that the University Court have decided that accommodation should be provided for the Department of Zoology on the University site at West Mains Road.
