In 1944, Harold Fisk (1908–1964) published a geological investigation of the lower Mississippi Valley at the request of the Mississippi River Commission.
Included in his exhaustive account was a series of maps that illustrated the many historical courses the river has traveled on its way from Missouri to the Gulf of Mexico.
Fisk, a geology professor at LSU, artfully chose to document these meanderings by color coding each path, resulting in a series of maps that showcases just how wild the Mississippi River once was.
