Most readers are aware that FHL has been connected for over a century with marine biological and oceanographic work in the San Juan Islands. Fewer may know that there has been almost a century of geological work done here too, most of it with UW connections. I asked Darrel Cowan, a UW Geology professor who has been working here for many years, to tell us some background on an exceptional map he donated to FHL; it is framed and hanging in the Commons. I encourage all to come admire it, and to read its history below! Many of the publications Darrel describes are also in the FHL library.
