Research
 

Early years involved working with Pleistocene non-marine Mollusca from marl deposits of Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Interested in the ecological relationships of mollusks and other freshwater organisms. In the process, a substantial reference collection of Pleistocene Mollusca has been built. A typical study would involve pit excavation of stratigraphic sections and systematic collection of continuous stratigraphic columns (extent of sections dependent on water table) and analysis of fauna and containing sediment.

More recent work involves description and tabulation of the use of building stones and bricks in Ohio and surrounding states and the history of quarrying and the clay industry within this region.
