    GEORGE GOUDIE CHISHOLM, who was the first lecturer (1908) and later the first reader (1921) in geography at the University of Edinburgh, and acted also as secretary of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society from 1910 to 1925, died very suddenly in Edinburgh on Feb. 9. Born on May 1, 1850, he was thus on the eve of completing his eightieth year, though few of his associates realised the fact; his mental vigour being unimpaired to the end, while even physically there were few signs of age.
