|This page is under construction, and I hope to bring to you information on Clifton J. Sarle, the discoverer of the Pittsford Shale Fauna of eurypterids, and what happened to him after he left Rochester, New York.|
|It was Clifton James Sarle who described the wonderful eurypterid fauna in 1903. I am one of the lucky few to have seen and collected eurypterids from the old Erie Canal behind the historic Spring House and eastward into the Village of Pittsford. I am indebted to Sarle for revealing these prehistoric animals to all of us. My interest in eurypterids, ironically, began within 2 or 3 years after his death--so I never had the opportunity to meet him.
Biographical data is currently being received from Allan Sarle Troy and I hope to include this data on this page. STAY TUNED Sam Ciurca June 30, 2002
