Wilhelm-Salomon-Calvi, late professor of geology at the University of Heidelberg, was one of the earliest outspoken supporters of Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift on which he published a series of papers and one book between 1930 and 1933. His work, which is briefly reviewed here, was completely ignored by almost all later authors. One of his interesting contributions was to point out that, because of lack of sufficient available moisture, an icecap could not have formed on a supercontinent such as Wegener's Pangaea.
