To but few men is it given to enjoy vigorous activity in a field of science continuously for a span of six and a half decades and to be, moreover, the outstanding and acknowledged leader in that field for a large part of that period. Yet such was the enviable experience and admirable accomplishment of William Morris Davis, physiographer and geologist, whose long and rich life ended rather suddenly but peacefully at Pasadena, California, on February 5 of this year. He had not quite reached his eighty-fourth birthday.
