Geology of the Burntfork Area

Mark J. Schoenfeld is a shirt-tail descendent of Robert Fosdick one of  Burntfork's earliest homesteaders.  Mark's wife is Robert's  great granddaughter.  Robert Fosdick married Maggie Mass, daughter of Phil Mass, which also makes Mark's wife the great great granddaughter of Phil and Adeline Mass, the areas very first settlers.

Anyway, all of the above has nothing to do with the fact that this kid (Mark Schoenfeld) from the streets of New York City, who started working on his masters degree at the University of Michigan and then transferred  to the University of Wyoming, decided to do his Master's Thesis on the Geology of the Burntfork Area.

The Thesis published in 1969 is available through the University of Wyoming Department of Geology Library.

With Mark's permission, the thesis is presented herein in its entirety.
