Stratigraphic range: Ordovician-Devonian

Quadrangle or area: Craig Quadrangle, SE Alaska
Shipment No.: A-74-19
Referred by: Churkin, Michael, Jr.
Report prepared by: Oliver, William A., Jr.
Date: 01/27/1975

A number of coral collections are reported on here. I would like to have more material from 1801, 1473 and 1511 as these are particularly interesting. I note indications that not all of the corals in some collections were sent. This is objectionable as it makes it more difficult to answer some kinds of questions. Any time that I am asked to give the age of a collection I am entitled to have all pertinent information and material.
