Excerpt from Pre-Glacial Man and the Aryan Race

Professor G. Frederick Wright of Oberlin College, who is indorsed by the Journal of Education as perhaps the best authority in America, in December last delivered a series of lectures before the Lowell Institute of Boston, on Glaciers. Of the various causes of the glacial period which have been presented, he says, A third [cause] is the precession of the equinoxes, and the varying eccentricity of the earth's orbit. This last is Mr. Croll's theory, and is perhaps the best of all the ten offered. On the duration of the glacial period, Dr. Wright calculates that the Niagara gorge is but seven thousand years old, the gorge at St. Anthony's Falls on the Mississippi the same age, one across the Scioto River not over twelve thou sand years, and possibly eleven thousand years for the erosion of Plumb Creek near Oberlin. It will thus be seen that Professor Wright, by scientific reasoning and research, has reached substantially the same results as are indicated in the present volume.
