Two of these, “Symposium on Turbidity Currents” which was held at the Chicago meeting in April 1950, and “Finding Ancient Shorelines” held at the Houston meeting in March 1953, were subsequently published in special volumes in October 1951 and February 1956, respectively.

In addition to the regular Research Committee Symposium on “Faunal Facies and Their Lithologic Associations,” presented in 1954 at the St. Louis meeting, a special symposium was also held on “Regional Aspects of Carbonate Deposition.” This carbonate symposium was organized by the writer in response to a special request by H. N. Fisk, who was president of the S.E.P.M. at that time.
