With the discovery of new paleomagnetic evidence in the 1950s, and especially with the discovery of plate tectonics in the 1960s, Wegener's theory of continental drift eventually became widely accepted. Wegener's paper is rare and very difficult to find in the original three separate journal issues in their original printed wrappers. Norman 2192. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.Book Id: 41526
