Hoeing's Map: "Mountain Passes"
Joseph Bernard Hoeing served as a geologist, cartographer, and
topographer, with the Kentucky Geological Survey from 1882-1893.
John R. Procter, director in 1890, wrote of him, "an educated
engineer, who has had large experience in topography....his very
instructive map showing mountain passes was published during the
year 1889." -- from notes made by Vivian Hall, Librarian,
Department of Geology, University of Kentucky. This little
map, which James Lane Allen might have known, has been reproduced
from two plates; the over-lay plate (printed in red) was prepared
by Allen Lindsey. This book has been printed during the summer
months of 1969-1972 by apprentices at the press of Gravesend.
Allen Lindsey, Peggy Bennington, Travis DuPriest, Mabel Benson,
and Gray Zeitz gave many hours to its publication. one hundred
