PREFACE The Biographical Memoirs is a series of volumes, beginning in IS77, containing the biographies of (lecease(1 members of the National Academy of Sciences and bibliographies of their published scientific contributions. The goal of the Academy is to have these memoirs serve as a contribution toward the history of American science. Each biographical essay is writ- ten by an individual familiar with the discipline and the scien- tific career of the cleceased. These volumes, therefore, pro- vide a record of the lives and works of some of the most clistinguishect leaders of American science as witnessed and interpreted by their colleagues and peers. Though the pri- mary concern is the members' professional lives and contri- butions, these memoirs also inclucle those aspects of their lives in their home, school, college, or later life that lecl them . . . ,` to t nelr sclentlhc career. The National Academy of Sciences is a private, honorary organization of scientists and engineers elected on the basis of outstanding contributions to knowledge. EstablishecT by a Congressional Act of Incorporation on March 3, 1863, the Academy works to further science and its use for the general welfare by bringing together the most qualified individuals to clear with scientific and technological problems of broad . ,~ slgnlncance.
