The National Building Stone Database would not be possible without the generosity of the hundreds of quarries that sent us samples of their stones at their own cost.



We would like to thank the following people for their contributions to this project:

The Staff of NCPTT

Edward G. FitzGerald (Architectural Conservator and Building Stone Collection Manager, NCPTT, 2010-2015) developed and executed the concept for the NBSDB its website.

Matthew Pailes, PhD (2015 Summer Intern) was responsible for most of the petrographic descriptions.

Raven Mueller (2014 Summer Intern) photo-documented samples and completed most of the data entry for new specimens.

Tyler Cenac (2014-2015 LSMSA Intern) helped to photo-document many samples.
