Women in geology
H. J. Plummer (1891-1951)
M.A. Northwestern University
Well-known for her work on foraminifera.
Consulting paleontologist and member of the BEG.
NPL holds many of her reports and thin sections.
Her library and foraminifera type specimens were transferred to the Paleontological Research Institute (PRI) in Ithaca, NY in 1952.
Many additional forams and the sample splits (the unpicked reference material) remain at TNSC.
