WE regret to record the death of Dr. Marion Isabel Newbigin, which occurred in Edin burgh on July 20. The removal of her outstanding personality marks a severe loss to geographical science in Great Britain, for she exerted a powerful influence upon the development of geography throughout the present century, by her own writings and teaching as well as by her admirable editing of the Scottish Geographical Magazine since 1902.
