This study assesses the plausibility of two models of spatial allocation of drumlins, i.e., random allocation and "contagious” allocation. Quadrat methods of analysis were used to test the models” utility in the southeastern Wisconsin drumlin field. Quadrat data were collected from the 15-minute U. S. Geological Survey topographic quadrangles. Results favor the "contagious" allocation model. This model is consistent with the theory of drumlin origin proposed by Smalley (1966), modified to allow for the distribution effects inherent in the drumlin-forming process.
