Additional Info:

In March of 1948, a group of mineral collectors met at the home of Dana Putnam in Rumford Corner, Maine and organized the “Oxford County Mineral and Gem Association.” The purpose of the club is to bring together people who are interested in mineralogy and geology, in hopes that by exchange of information and specimens that all people may benefit. To also maintain the common interest by social meetings and friendly discussions. To visit, as a group, mineral locations for the study and collection of Mineral specimens. To encourage safety practices in the field. It shall also be the policy of the club to award scholarships as funds allow.
