"This thesis will concern itself primarily with the preparation, handling and calcination of Missouri fire clays that are subsequently used as "grog" for manufacture of fire brick. This "grog", i.e., calcined flint, burley or diaspore clay is then mixed with ether clays having plastic qualities to form desired shapes of high temperature refractories, and burned as a final product in tunnel kilns and as required, in “beehive” or periodic kilns. The actual manufacture of fire brick will not be dealt with since it is, in itself, a highly specialized industry. We are immediately concerned with the proper preparation of calcined clay as required for firebrick manufacture"--Introduction, page 1.
