Collection Historical Note

William B. Potter was appointed the Allen Professor of Mining and Metallurgy in 1871. Thomas Allen, President of the Missouri Iron Mountain Railroad Company, pledged $2,800 per year for a 5-year period to support the teaching of mining and metallurgy at the university. It was reported that the Department of Mining and Metallurgy’s laboratory was outstanding for its day, even housing the collection of the Missouri State Geological Survey. The pledge from Thomas Allen was not renewed and expired in 1876. Enrollment in the department declined significantly in the 1880s. In 1892, the course in Mining and Metallurgy was abolished. The Department of Geology had gained traction under the leadership of Walter McCourt, Professor of Geology, in the 1910s. The Department of Geology expanded and developed over time, becoming the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.
