STATEMENT OF STANDING. 



Matriculated in 1876 from Montreal High School into the 
Department of Applied Science (Practical Chemistry Course) of 
McGill University. Graduated three years later as Bachelor 
of Applied Science with first rank honours in Natural Science. 
Continued scientific studies as a Post-Graduate Student during 
the next year in the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale Uni- 
versity. 

In 1880 received appointment on the regular staff of the 
Geological Survey of Canada — with which I had been 
connected since 1877 — which appointment was held until 
1889. 

In 1886 was one of the representatives of the Geological 
Survey of Canada at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition in 
London. 

In 1888 was elected a Fellow of the Geological Society of 
America. 

In 1889 was appointed Lecturer in Geology (including 
Petrography) at McGill University, which appointment has 
been held since that time. 

Studied three semesters at the University of Heidelberg and 
graduated in 1892 as Doctor of Natural Philosophy with the 
highest possible honours (" Summa cum laude ''). 

Also studied several times for short periods at Johns Hopkins 
University.

Mv DRAB DR. A.DAM8, — 

1 may Bay that I am exceedingly pleased to learn thai you 
are i candidate for the Logan Chair of Geology at AfcGilL 
I am quite certain that it would be i to edingly difficult, if not 
impossible, to find any one who, from training, study and prac- 
tical experience, and knowledge of geological work, would be 
more competent than yourself to give Bound instruction in 
geology and in all the best methods of geological investigation. 
I therefore Bincerely trust that, in the best interests of the 
science in Canada, there will be no hesitation on the part of 
the University authorities in selecting you for the vacant chair, 
which, if elected, you will, I feel assured, fill with much credll 
and bonour to the University and to yourself. With West 
Irishes for pour success, believe me to l><'

TESTIMONIALS. ( 

affords me much pleasure to express my belief that he is emi- 
nently qualified for that position, both by training and experi- 
ence, and that if appointed to the chair, he will conduct the 
work connected with it, to the satisfaction and advantage of 
the University. 

Mr. Adams has availed himself of the best opportunities for 
the study of geological subjects, both in Europe and America. 
He has also had long practical experience in geological work 
in connection with the Geological Survey of Canada, which 
has enabled him to familiarize himself especially with the 
details of Canadian Geology and with the economic minerals 
of the country. 

I am familiar not only with Mr. Adams' work, while con- 
nected with the Survey, but also with various memoirs resulting 
from his investigation of special subjects, and have formed the 
highest opinion of both. 

I have the honour to be, Sir, 

Your obedient Servant, 

George M. Dawson.

From John W. Judo, Ph. D., F. R. 8., F. G. S., &c, Professor of Geology 
in the Royal College of Science, London, England, and formerly Presi- 
dent of the London Geological Society. 

The Chancellor of McGill University, Montreal. 

Sii\ — It is with feelings alike of pleasure and confidence 
that I venture to address you on the subject of the appointment 
to the Geological Chair in your University. I feel sure that 
I am only expressing the general sentiment of geologists in 
Europe in stating that the researches of Dr. Frank D. Adams 
are of the highest scientific value and that they are full of 
promise for the future.

These researches in mineralogy and on various branches of 
tr«- .1« >Lri« :tl Bcienoe which have been rani..! on daring the last 
fourteen years have made Dr. Adams' name widely known 
a- an investigator <>i' singular acateneas and a thinker of no 
ordinary pow<

siderable experience in the work of teaching, I cannot but feel 
thai h<- a especially marked on! as a u orthy successor to the 

chair BO 1 < < n l: and ably filled by Sir William Dawson. The 
appointment of I fc. Adaias to the ( 'hair «»f < I oology at Montreal 
would ensure the continued excellence oft he geological teaching 
in the University, and would be an appropriate recognition of 
 scientific career of great success and still greater promise. 
I have the honour to be, Sir, 

Yours very faithfully, 

John W. Judd.

>//. — I learn that my estimate of Dr. Frank D.Adams may 

be of service to him and 1 am very happy to avail myself of 

tlii- opportunity of expressing my sincere esteem for this young 
scholar. 

M ■. knowledge o I l>r. frank 1 >. Adams was obtained from 

the study "I lii- scientific publications and from intimate per- 
sona] association with him during three semesters in which he 

studied under my guidance, in the E&ineralogicaJ and Geological 

I minute of this I biiversity. 



TESTIMONIALS. y 

His earnest scientific work, the scrupulous care of his obser- 
vations, the thoroughness of his investigations, and the objec- 
tivity of his statements have won my high esteem. I am fully 
convinced that he would discharge the assumed professorial 
duties with devotion and consider him as perfectly qualified 
to fill a University position as teacher of Geology and Petro- 
graphy. 

It would be a source of great pleasure to me if this testi- 
monial should be of service to this talented young scholar. 

Yours respectfully, 

H. Rosenbusch. 

Heidelberg, April 8th, 1893. 



From A. Andrew, Ph. D., Professor of Palaeontology in the University of 
Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany. 

(Translated from the German.) 

To the Chancellor of McGill University, 

Montreal, Canada. 

Honoured Sir, — I learn that Dr. F. Adams is about to apply 
for the Professorship of Geology and Palaeontology in your 
University. I take this opportunity of most heartily recom- 
mending Dr. Adams especially as a teacher of Palaeontology. 
He has for several semesters worked in my Institute in 
Heidelberg, paying especial attention to the Invertebrata and 
other fossil forms of especial importance from a geological point 
of view. I believe that Dr. Adams is a gentleman thoroughly 
qualified to represent Palaeontology in your University. With 

greatest respect I remain 

Yours most sincerely, 

Dr. A. Andrew.

Dear Sir, — -Being informed that Dr. Frank I). Adams is a 
oandidate for the ehaii of Geology and Paleontology at your 
University, it gives me much pleasure to express my high 
opinion of bim and my belief that he will do honour to any 
tion i" which he is appointed. Bis course of training in 
. Mineralogy and Chemistry has been broad and 
thorough, and he has made the best use of bis opportunities, 
which have been unusually good. Be carried away from New 
Baven the esteem and respecl of his associates and instructors 
alike, ami judging from the remarks of his chief instructor at 
Heidelberg — in a personal interview last summer — the same 
was true there. The fact that he obtained the highest degree 
in Germany bears testimony to the character of his work. He 
has already Bhown the spirit of the investigator, and has pub- 
lished a Beries of papers which do him much credit. I believe 
that in the future he will bring credit to his University both 
:i- i teacher and a man of science. I remain with high respect, 

Very truly yours, 

E. 8. Dana.

and to obtain personal knowledge of his ability as a student, 
and also to learn something of his qualities as an investigator. 
I have also watched his career since be left here, and have 
been much gratified with the character of the scientific work 
he has accomplished. 

Few Geologists have had the benefit of such varied training 
in the field, the laboratory and the class-room, and that Ik; has 
fully availed himself of the opportunities lie lias enjoyed is 
abundantly demonstrated by his published contributions to 
geological science. Added to this experience he has the 
earnest enthusiasm and personal character which must greatly 
increase the value of his instruction in the University. 

I most cordially commeud him to your consideration for the 
position of Logan Professor of Geology, believing that if ap- 
pointed he will discharge the duties of that chair with such 
ability as to bring honor alike to himself and the University. 

I am, with great respect, 

Yours very truly,

New Haven, Conn., April 20th, 1893. 



From George H. Williams, B. A., Ph. D., Professor of Inorganic Geology, 
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md , U. S. A. 

To the Chancellor of McGill University, Montreal. 

My Dear Sir, — I regard it as a privilege to be able to address 
to you, and through you to the Board of Governors of McGill 
University, my estimate of the fitness of Dr. Frank D. Adams 
for the Logan Professorship of Geology. 

Since we were fellow students in the University of Heidel- 
berg, in 1880-81, I have known Dr. Adams intimately, 
and have come to value more and more highly his many 
personal and scientific qualities. Of the former, and of 
his popularity and success as a teacher, it is, of course, 
unnecessary for me to speak, since they are even better 



151 nsn im«»m \i>. 

kn->wii to those who are near him. I take it that yon 
will care to hear from me onl} what I think of his scientific 
abilit) . equipment and work. 

The department of Geology to which I>r. Adams has in the 

main devoted his attention is the one which in my opinion is 

the most difficult, bul at the same time the most attractive and 

lising in the science. It i- the one which, if it has in the 

past yielded the least definite results, is destined in the future 

to be second to □ ■, since it covers the longest part of the 

earth's history. It- tardy development has been due to the 
lack of adequate methods and a clear formulation of its 
problems, These arc now ;ii hand, and Geology Bhonld 
!*■ repn I in Montreal only by some one thoroughly 

acquainted with modern methods for the study of meta- 
morphic and pre-Gambrian rock-. For this line of work 
Canada presents a field perhaps unrivalled in the world, 
and I know of no available man better equipped to culti- 
vate it than Dr. Adam-. 

If- has th< great advantage <>f a much more thorough 
chemical experience than i- usual with L r ('<>lo<dsts — a training 
somewhat tin result of circumstance-, Imt a most valuable 
preparation for original research on the crystalline rocks. In 
the second place, a persona] acquaintance, resulting from twelve 

- of field work, with the country where his problems lie. 

If ha- also had the advantage of long, frequent and recent 
contact with the foremost investigators in his Held of work, so 

that he conic- with his mind tilled with the best and freshest 

ideas of Europe and this country. His published papers show 
hi- appreciation of critical points, and an ability to observe 
keenly ami to draw even from small material, conclusions of 

eaching importance. 

Other field- of geology than that eh,, -en for his own re- 
ches have by do means been left by I m-. Adams uncultivated, 
so that, for purposes of teaching at least, he has an adequate 
all-round equipment. 



TESTIMONIALS. 13 

In short, I have no hesitation whatever in saying that 
in my best judgment, and from my knowledge of the 
requirements of the Professorship which you desire to fill, 
there is no available person better fitted as a man, a 
teacher, a student and an investigator to hold the position 
than Dr. Adams. 

Should my opinion be desired upon any more special points 
than those touched upon in this letter, I shall be happy to 
place it at your disposal. 

Very respectfully, 

Geo. H. Williams. 

Baltimore, April 7th, 1893. 



From William B. Clarke, Ph. D., Associate Professor of Organic Geology, 
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md., U. S. A. 

To the Chancellor of McGill University, 

Montreal, Canada. 

Dear Sir, — I take the liberty of addressing a letter to you 
in regard to Dr. Frank D. Adams, whom I have known as 
a friend for some years and for whose scientific attainments 
and strong character I have the greatest admiration. Dr. 
Adams accompanied me, several years ago upon a scientific 
expedition to the region adjoining the Chesapeake Bay and its 
tributaries, and upon that occasion I had an opportunity to 
become acquainted with his wide scientific attainments. I 
think among the younger men in America in geological science 
he has few equals. His publications have attracted much 
attention among scientific men and show a fundamental 
knowledge of the subjects with which he deals. 

It is of the greatest importance to an institution that its 
Professor of Geology should be fully versed in the geology of 
the country and region in which he has to labour. In this 
particular especially Dr. Adams is well equipped for collegiate 
or university work in Canada.

From Joseph P. Iddings, Ph. B., Associate Professor of Petrology in the 
University of Chicago, 111., U. S. A. 

To the Chancellor of McGill University, Montreal. 

Dear Sir, — I take the liberty of addressing you in behalf 
of my friend, Dr. Frank D. Adams, who I understand is de- 
sirous of being appointed to the chair of geology in the McGill 
University. It gives me great pleasure to do so since I am 
confident that the University will find in Dr. Adams both an 
able geologist and a gentleman in the best sense of the word. 
Having known him for more than eleven years, I am able to 
assure you of his qualifications as a geologist along those lines 
about which I may be permitted to express an opinion, that 
is in petrology. But he has extended his studies beyond the 
limits of this portion of geology and has prepared himself for 
the broader field of general geology. His ability to teach the 
subject you have recently tested, and I trust he was as suc- 
cessful in this undertaking as he has been as an investigator. 
His association with the University together with his experi- 
ence and acquaintance with those of Yale, Johns Hopkins and 
Heidelberg would seem to render him peculiarly well fitted to 
undertake the duties of a professorship and would make him 
an intelligent member of the University faculty. 

Begging your favorable consideration of his application for 
the position mentioned, I have the honour to be 

Yours very respectfully, 

Joseph P. Iddings.

Adam- for the " Logan < hair of < Ji'olofjry and Palaeontology " 
in M.t.ill I 'nivcrsity, bo Long oocupied by yourself, and I 
most respectfully beg permission to express my regret thai it is 
asary for yon to retire and my sincere hope thai Dr. Adams 
may receive the appointment His success would be a fitting 
jnition «>t' his fine qualities as a geologist, a teacher, and a 
cultivated gentleman, and would till the must prominent pro- 
fi-ssorsliiji of triHtloiry in Canada with a man well equipped to 
buco i d j ourself. 

I am quite familiar w ith the published record of 1 >r. Adams' 

work, and have great admiration for the breadth of view he 
displays while so thoroughly grounded in a great specialty — 
petrology. It is the opinion expressed by many in this 

Country, besides myself, that we have a ri<dit to expert very 

important results from the application of Dr. Adams' talents 
and knowledge t" some of the great problems of geology as 
illustrated in Canadian area-. Ilis must recent publication, 
on the Norian or Laurentian of Canada, is an evidence in this 
direction which must he fully appreciated by bis own country-

From J. S. Diller, B. S., F. G. S. A., in charge of the Division of Petro- 
graphy, United States Geological Survey, Washington, D. C, U. S. A. 

To the Chancellor of McGill University, 

Montreal, Canada. 

8i7', — It is a pleasure to say a word in behalf of a young 
man like Dr. Frank D. Adams whose published results so 
clearly show that he stands in the front rank of progressive 
geologists of this country. He has made nearly a score of 
original contributions to the science of geology, chiefly from a 
petrological and chemical standpoint. 

His investigations of the rocks of the Quebec group, of the 
granites from British Columbia and adjacent parts of Alaska, 
and the Canadian rocks containing Scapolite and those associ- 
ated with the apatite deposits are best known to me. They 
give evidence of that careful observation of facts and of that 
keenness of judgment in interpretation and generalization 
which characterize a geologist of the highest grade. In the 
particular phases of geological investigation to which he has 
given special attention, Dr. Adams stands far ahead of any 
other Canadian geologist. 

His happy disposition, pleasing address, clearness of state- 
ment and full appreciation of the needs of students, qualify 
him well for giving university instruction and I heartily 
recommend him as a worthy successor of Sir William Dawson 
in the Logan Chair of Geology of McGill University. 

Very respectfully yours, 

J. S. Diller.
