Dr. T. G. Pinches


    WE regret to record the death of Dr. Theophilus Goldridge Pinches, the distinguished Assyriologist, which took place at the age of seventy-eight years, at Muswell Hill, London, on June 6. Dr. Pinches originally was engaged in his father's business as a die-sinker; but, taking up the study of cuneiform inscriptions, he joined the staff of the British Museum in 1878, retaining that position until 1900, when he retired on pension. He was lecturer in Assyriology at University College, London, and in the University of Liverpool, resigning the latter post, owing to ill-health, only a year or two before his death.
