ONLY a little more than five years have elapsed since the duties of the Chair of Pathology in Aberdeen University, rendered vacant by the resignation of the late Professor Hamilton, F.R.S., were taken over by his successor, Dr. George Dean, whose early decease it is now our sorrowful duty to chronicle. Professor Dean had been in feeble health for a considerable time before his death, and the hope that the leave of absence granted him from his professorial duties would bring about some measure
more » ... bout some measure of improvement in his condition was not to be realised. He passed away in his fifty-first year on 30th May. The University in which he had spent his student days, and in which he ultimately served with great distinction, is the poorer for his loss; and it is not too much to say that the whole world of pathological science to which, in spite of physical disabilities, he had given a lifelong devotion, is thrown into mourning. By none will his death be regretted more than by the numerous confrbres, both a t home and abroad, many of whom enjoyed his friendship while all paid homage to his scientific work. Among the members of the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland his loss will be especially felt. He waa one of the original members and a member of Committee, he frequently contributed to its Proceedings, and always took the keenest interest in its welfare. Professor Dean was an honours graduate both in Arts and Medicine of the University in which he afterwards became a professor. I n 1885 he took the degree of M.A. with honours in the Department of Natural Science, and four years later (in 188 9), after a distinguished curriculum, he graduated with honours in Medicine. A love for biological science had always possessed him, and it was therefore t o be expected that on the completion of his medical course he would take what opportunity offered to secure the widest possible training in the methods of the science to which the inspiring teaching of the late Professor Hamilton had introduced him.
