John Peter Buwalda, Professor of Geology at the California Institute of Technology and a member of this Association since 1926, died from a sudden heart attack on August 19, 1954, just as he and his son Robert were returning to the highway after a day reviewing a section along the San Andreas Fault in the vicinity of Frazier Mountain. However hard such an unexpected shock is to family, friends, and colleagues, it must be tempered--in the minds of all geologists--by the thought that this is exactly the way each of us would choose to go, were a choice granted to us.
