Bowles, Oliver. Memorial Stone (PDF), Information Circular 7720. U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1955a. 6 pp. (The excerpt below is from the “Introduction.”) “From the most remote periods of civilization stone has been used to perpetuate the memory of individuals or to immortalize their noble achievements. Ancient memorials ranged from simple piles of stone (cairns), or single markers, to great obelisks and pyramids or magnificent mausoleums. The Taj Mahal at Agra, India, built of white marble by Shah Jehan in memory of the Empress Mumtez Mahal, is one of the most beautiful and costly memorials ever built. It was erected between 1632 and 1650 at an estimated cost of $50,000,000 or more and is today an object of unusual interest for travelers. Other magnificent memorials both ancient and modern are to be found in many lands....”

(From the Introduction: "The many problems involved in winning this great quantity of raw material from the natural rock and preparing it for the kilns have in the past received little attention from any governmental agency. Therefore...the Bureau of Mines began a study of problems in limestone quarrying in an effort to advance more economical methods of operation and the utilization of waste material. Field studies were made at many quarries, and the information thus compiled.")

The films are part of their geography series, made under the supervision of Dr. Charles T. McFarlane of Columbia University, and are used in teaching this subject by the visual education method in the public schools of America. Building Stone deals with the quarrying of granite, limestone, slate and other building stone. Included are pictures of the largest cathedrals of Europe and America, the beautiful temples of Indian, and the Lincoln, Washington and Stone Mountain Memorials of our own country. STONE Magazine and some of the leading industrial concerns aided in the making of these films. Among them are: Sullivan Granite Co.; Vendor Slate Co.; Hallowell Granite Co.; Vermont Marble Co.; John A. Roebling’s Sons; National Slate Association; S. W.

(Book description: “After some 25 years of exploring the impact of industry on our planet, the celebrated Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has accumulated a substantial body of work documenting the world's major quarries - in Canada, Italy, China, Spain, Portugal, India and America. Quarries are, of course, a crucial source for the buildings we construct, and as such, a negative correlative of what we add to the world - as well as a tangible (and neglected) evidence for our ongoing dependence on its resources. Somewhere a building is being created while a landscape is being destroyed, and, as Burtynsky writes, ‘quarries are places that are outside of our normal experience, yet we partake of their output on a daily basis.’ His images of these plundered landscapes are simultaneously beautiful and disquieting.”)
