Dr. A. S. Romer in a recent note has written on collecting vertebrate fossils in the Texas "Red Beds." In his paper, Romer states that the year 1946 is the seventy-fifth anniversary of the beginning of vertebrate-fossil collecting in the Permian of north-central Texas; and bases his statement on a small Permian reptile bone (which turned up in the Museum of Comparative Zoology a few years ago) with a label in Jacob Boll's handwriting, "Beaver Creek, 50 miles north of Fort Belknap, Texas, 1871." I have been much interested in Romer's note because of my own extensive studies on Boll's life and explorations in Texas.
