James Deane in Edward Hitchcock (1858)



I suspect that the research into James Deane readily uncovered the discussion 
of him by Edward Hitchcock in "The Sandstone of the Connecticut Valley" 
(Boston: 1858), but I mention it anyway.  After 3 fleeting mentions of Deane 
in the body of the text, Hitchcock concludes his work with a 9 page (191-199) 
refutation of claims that Deane's scientific study of Ct. Valley tracks had 
preceded Hitchcock's.  The tone is one of high pique.  

Incidently, the following works by Deane are cited in Hitchcock's 
bibliography.
The one exception is the entry preceded by asterisks (***) which is an 
article by Hitchcock which seems to mark the first public volley between the 
two men -- presumably in 1844 or 45.
