SEPTEMBER 25 -- TODAY IN THE HISTORICAL SCIENCES

1749: ABRAHAM GOTTLOB WERNER born at Wehrau, Upper Lusatia (now Osiecznica,
Poland).  Werner's father was inspector of the ironworks in Wehrau and
Lorenzdorf, and Abraham will develop an early interest in mineralogy.
Following study of law and the history of language at Leipzig, he will
become curator of the mineral collections and a teacher of mining at the
Bergakademie Freiberg, which, under his influence, will become one of the
most prominent schools of geology in Europe.  As one of the first
geologists to distinguish minerals from rocks and to use the sequence of
rocks to reconstruct the history of the earth, Werner will be remembered as
one of the founding figures of historical geology

1798: JEAN-BAPTISTE-ARMAND-LOUIS-LEONCE ELIE DE BEAUMONT born at Canon,
Calvados, France.  A mining engineer and geologist, he will publish in
1841, with Armand Dufrenoy, _Carte Geologique Generale de la France_,
the first detailed geologic map of France.

Today in the Historical Sciences is a feature of Darwin-L@ukanaix.cc.
