The Beales Bibliography,
a work in progress, first released 2001;
revised 21 October 2002; and posted
here on 08 December 2004.
Further material has come to light, as some of Frank's files
were re-evaluated during the final phase of the AGID CANADA Book & Journal Project
in late 2008 and early 2009. Occasionally, new items come to light, as recently as 2019. There are now 103 items, cited below.
Frank Beales (1919-2004) was a geologist who spent the majority of his academic career at the University of Toronto, after early years at McMaster University in Hamilton. Frank is known best for work on carbonate sediments of Neoproterozoic to Recent age (dolomitization, reef settings, bahamites, cherts, etc), for original contributions to the study of Mississippi Valley-type lead-zinc deposits, and for consideration of the migration of petroleum and ore fluids in sedimentary basins. All available Beales papers are included, and all known theses by students whom he supervised. Omitted are notes on field trips that he led, most notably to Florida and the Bahamas, and products of his consulting activities, concerning topics such as lead-zinc-silver mineralization in Mexico and industrial minerals in southern Ontario.
The bibliography is provided here in a citation-style format. It contains 71 items by Frank, 25 student theses and 7 other related items. The items are presented in three sections, each arranged in chronological order. A brief note on the origins of the bibliography appears at the end of this document: it should prove useful for biographical and archival purposes in particular. A knowledgeable appreciation of Frank in the context of Canadian sedimentology is available (Miall, 1998). He was certainly one of the first practitioners of the discipline in Canada (Middleton, 2004), eventually working in many parts of the country, from British Columbia and Alberta to southern Ontario and the Canadian Arctic.References

Notes for biographer and archivist
This bibliography is undoubtedly incomplete, especially with regard to graduate students, both formally supervised and informally aided. The BSc thesis roster in this list is but a token; there must be many more. Much of this material was assembled while sorting out a sizable fraction of Frank Beales' library in the past few years, as part of the collection of materials for overseas shipment as part of the AGID Canada Book and Journal Donation Project which is hosted on this site.
This material has been interesting to compile, and suggests three principal stages in Frank's professional evolution, namely; (1) sedimentology and energy resources, (2) sedimentology with regard to metallic ores, such as MVT deposits, and (3) excursions into geochemical and geophysical techniques applicable to his beloved carbonate sequences. His wide-ranging interests extended to additional topics, such as terrestrial impact structures.
