THE name of Dr. Emil Trinkler must be added to the growing list of those who, having risked health and life itself in the cause of science in distant lands, have fallen victims to the perils of modern civilisation. T. Alexander Barns, after years of exploration in Central Africa, was killed in a motor accident in Chicago; Dr.Trinkler, after such narrow escapes from disaster in the uninhabited Kunlun as when all but one of his yaks perished, also died as the result of a motor accident—in Bremerhaven in April 1931. He was but a young man of thirty-five years when he died but he has left behind a record of solid work which will remain as an important contribution to the elucidation of the structural and morphological history of the Karakoram, Kunlun and Takla-makan regions.
