One hundred and fifty years ago marked the beginnings of a remarkable geologic odyssey funded by the State of Indiana. The legislature of this then pioneer state appropriated less and $2,000 annually for David Dale Owen to conduct a geological survey of the state. David Dale Owen accomplished much more than perhaps even the modern state legislature has yet realized.
