The Biographical Memoirs is a series of volumes, beginning in IS77, containing the biographies of ~leceasecl members of the National Academy of Sciences ant! 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.

These volumes, therefore, provide a record of the lives ant] works of some of the most distinguished leaders of American science as witnessed anc! interpreted by their colleagues and peers.
