I have been doing research on William Edgar Geil for three years now, and some of my thinking about the man, his travels, and his writings is on Round and Square. This resource center is meant to help you negotiate the thousand-plus entries on the blog to find the forty or so that deal with Geil.

Phi Beta Kappa Lecture 2011
My first public lecture about William Edgar Geil. This is a very good place to start if you have not heard of him before.
The Isle That Was Called Patmos
This 1896 publication was Geil's first book-length travelogue. Each post in the series is linked to all of the others, so you will be able to find your way once you click the link above.

Ocean and Isle
Geil's second book (1902) is the first to appear from his three-plus year journey across the globe. It focuses on the south seas, followed by an account of his extraordinary mission to Melbourne (many copies of this book are still on used bookstore shelves in Australia, 110 years later).
