Dr. John Campbell Merriam, distinguished paleontologist, died in Oakland, California, on 30 October 1945. He had just passed his seventy-sixth birthday. Since his retirement from the presidency of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, which office he held for 18 years, Dr. Merriam had continued his writing and scientific study on the Pacific Coast, spending much of his time at the California Institute of Technology. In 1943 he became consultant and lecturer at the University of Oregon, where he was associated with the Departments of Geology and Anthropology. These were his last scientific interests before his health failed.
