Joe Harten ’85 Donates Rock Collection

12 May 2009

We would like to express a special thanks to Joe Harten ’85, who was a history and political economy major, for the donation of a very nice set of rocks and minerals that had been collected by a great-uncle who happened to be an avide amateur geologist.  The collection included a number of very nice specimens which will be added to the Dana Mineral Set or used as classroom specimens.

The collection contained minerals such as apatite, barite, fluorite and staurolite as well as some geodes and fossils.

 Thanks Joe, we appreciate your gift very much!
