The second State Geological Survey of Texas (the "Glenn Buckley survey") owed its establishment to an Act approved August 13, 1870 (supra). Over two years elapsed, however, before a state geologist was named. Finally, on March 31, 1873, Governor Edmund J. Davis appointed J. W. Glenn State Geologist. Charles Edward Hall of Albany, N. Y., was his assistant. This office Glenn held until March 6, 1874, when he resigned.
