The Works of A. E. Douglass

A. E. Douglass (1867-1962) is commonly known as the Father of Dendrochronology. This article contains a list that I created of Douglass’ works.

Works

1909: The Monthly Weather Review published his first paper on dendrochronology.[1, p.315]

1914: His paper from 1909 was updated to be added to The Climatic Factor (Washington: Carnegie Institution).[1, p.316]

The Carnegie Series[1, p.311]

1919: Climate Cycles and Tree Ring Growth, Vol. 1

1928: Climate Cycles and Tree Ring Growth, Vol. 2

1936: Climate Cycles and Tree Ring Growth, Vol. 3

Volume 4 was never finished but an unfinished version of it is currently being held in the Special Collections of the University of Arizona Library.
