Discovery in Flint Ridge, 1954 - 1957
Philip M. Smith


Flint Ridge is a term well known to many speleologists. The intense investigation of the cavern system that is in the ridge probably has no equal. The work in Flint Ridge is now a major effort of the Cave Research Foundation, an organization formed for the purpose of financing and directing scientific speleological investigations. Philip M. Smith, president of the Foundation, has been with the Flint Ridge Project since it started. He was a member of the NSS expedition in 1954 and has been on many of the subsequent expeditions. Mr. Smith summarizes the highlights of exploration in the Flint Ridge system since 1954 in this paper.
