"Several years ago in the Ceramics Lab. of the Missouri School of Mines some A. P. Green Ozark Clay test pieces were left in a drier for a period of about seven months at a constant temperature of 110C. At the end of this period it was noticed that these specimens had disintegrated and crumpled down to a powdered mass. The object of this experiment was to repeat the former test and see if the clay would disintegrate and if so why. We also wished to find if by drying at higher temperatures for a shorter length of time would these specimens disintegrate. There was no literature of this subject or any subject which closely related this one"--Object, page 1.
