The New York
Glaciogram was stared as a "round robin" chain of notes kicked off by Dr. G. Gordon Conally here at SUNY New Paltz in December 1965 with the encouragement of Dr. Ernest Muller at Syracuse University (see New York Glaciogram Vol. 1 no. 1). The first collection of notes was complied in 1966 by Dr.
of the Geology Department at SUNY Binghamton as
an informal news letter for
researchers interested in glacial and Quaternary geology, and the New
York Glaciogram was born. The Glaciogram was compiled and edited
at Binghamton until Fall 1972 when, Dr.
Parker Calkin, Department of Geology, SUNY
Buffalo assumed the responsibilities as editor. The
Glaciogram was last picked up in Fall 1997 by Dr. P. Jay Fleisher
at SUNY Oneonta, who continued collecting news and distributing the
Glaciogram until 2005. We are all indebted to Gordon, Ernie, and Don’s
foresight and to Parker and Jay for carrying the message. I
a promise to Jay in 2007 that if I landed back in New
York State I would continue the tradition.
2008 and Beyond
Well, here I am now
in the Hudson Valley, and I would like to thank Jay for all of his
support and encouragement. I have decided that the Glaciogram
will enter the digital age begining with the 2008 volume. I
intend to publish it only annually in December, so there should be no
lack of news from your summer field season! Also, it will now be
distributed electronically via this web page thanks to
the generosity of SUNY New Paltz Computer Services.
If you have comments or suggestions for
Glaciogram contact me anytime. Those of you with
submissions... please don't
wait until the deadline!
