References and Acknowledgments - Geologic Walking Tour of Building Stones of Downtown Baltimore
It was a great experience working on this project, and with the wonderful people involved. I gratefully acknowledge the geologists with the Maryland Geological Survey: Mr. Kenneth Schwarz, Dr. James Reger, Dr. Jonathan Edwards, Dr. David Brezinski, and Dr. John Glaser. Thank you, Ms. Claire Richardson, for your many hours of conversation and guidance. Thanks, Dale Shelton and Dean Freeman for the many rides downtown; it would have been a long walk without you! Peggy McCabe, thank you for all the moral support. I owe a special thank you to Mr. Thomas Doyle, president of Hilgartner Natural Stone Company in Baltimore, for your many hours spent with me looking through books and walking downtown. Also, thank you Dr. Robert Ridky of the University of Maryland for your inspiration and sharing your knowledge of the downtown area.
Subsequent to Ms. McCann-Murrays
involvement, geologists of the Maryland Geological Survey prepared
and produced most of the imagery and completed final editing and layout
of the document. The geologists involved in this phase included James
Reger, Heather Quinn, John M. Wilson, and Robert D. Conkwright. The
Maryland Geological Survey wishes to thank Mr. James M. Strickland
of Maryland Stone Service, Inc. of Baltimore for his contributions
to this Walking Tour. The Maryland Geological Survey would also like
to thank Mr. Thomas Doyle, president of Hilgartner Natural Stone Company,
for his contributions during the final preparations of this document.
