First suggested by Dr. Rae, in 1832. W. E.
(afterwards Sir) Logan was appointed provincial geologist, 1842, and,
the government having decided to carry out a geological survey of the
province, he took charge of the work the following year. The
establishment of the survey was largely the result of petitions
presented by the Natural History Society of Montreal, and the Quebec
Literary and Historical Society. The first report was for the year 1843.
Twenty years later, the reports 1843-1863 were summarized in a volume of
983 pages, Geology of Canada. The periods 1863-1866 and 1866-1869 were
each covered in a single report. Thereafter, annual volumes were
published. Two general indexes have been issued, one for the reports
1863-1884, and the second for 1885-1906.
