Discoverers and Miners

Arthur F. Stocker, "Edward Kennard Rand," The American Scholar 52 (1983) 89-97 (at 93):
In the phrontisteria of this world, as in Heaven, there are many mansions. In some dwell the discoverers of great truths hitherto unknown or unrecognized, in others live the miners of data, who gather and sort diverse bits of new information that become building blocks out of which the edifices of the future can later be constructed.
