S. W. Geiser, "David Gouverner Burnet, Satirist," is Pro-
fessor of Biology at Southern Methodist University, Dallas.
He is Texas' most distinguished student of the history of science
and scientific endeavor. His major interest is in the Texas field
from 1820 to 1880. He is an inveterate seeker after facts;
Professor Webb once, rather wittily, described Professor Geiser's
method as: "get all the facts about the main character, and then
all the facts about all the folks who had anything to do with the
main character." His Naturalists of the Frontier is one of the
finest contributions to the field of Texas research. He is a
frequent contributor to the Quarterly.
Samuel E. Asbury, "The Private Journal of Juan Nepomuceno
Almonte," is now on modified service in the State Chemist's of-
fice at the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas at
College Station, Texas. Professor Asbury spends his afternoons
and evenings, however, working on his many absorbing Texas
history projects. Other than the Almonte, his most interesting
recent find has been the reminiscences of Ann Raney Thomas,
in seven books, 1810-1890.
Also, at present, he is collaborating with S. W. Geiser on a
study of the weather and the Texas Revolution. Professor As-
bury's "Jonas Harrison: Legendary and Historical" in the Jan-
uary, 1942, Quarterly is frequently referred to as one of
the models of biographical study.
Eugene C. Barker, "A Plea for More History in Business,"
is the dean of Texas historians; see the Quarterly, April,
1943. Dr. Barker is at present working on a biographical study
of Lester G. Bugbee, one of the early, great teachers of the
University, and a prime mover in the early days of the
E. W. Winkler, "A Check List of Texas Imprints, 1846-1875,"
