THE hand of death has fallen heavily on the Geological Survey of India during the past few years; for we have lost in turn, and at a comparatively young age, Cotter (1941), Pilgrim (1943), and Christie (1944), all retired from the Department. Now we have to lament the death of a serving officer, Dr. Edward Leslie Gilbert Clegg, who passed away on September 8, 1944, some days after an operation in the General Hospital, Calcutta.
