Sketches by John Muir
TO JOHN MUIR AND WILLIAM E. COLBY
No geologist today, nor chemist or physician, would venture to predict any “final” pronouncement about his science; the measure of John Muir’s total contribution to geology must therefore remain somewhat obscure—less so, perhaps, for having been gathered together here in printed form. But in a broader sense his supremacy is, and always has been, unchallenged. It is as the great public servant, the pioneer in conservation, that the Sierra Club will best remember and honor him.
Second only to Muir in this great service, and dedicated to it with equal devotion, yet over a longer period of time, is William E. Colby. In the wish to record some measure of appreciation of his half century of devotion, the Sierra Club can find no better expression than in the publication of a book which links the names of its two best-loved members.
