LAMONT--LANSING. The Trustees and community of the American Museum of Natural History are saddened by the death of Lansing Lamont, Trustee and Honorary Trustee for over three decades. An acclaimed journalist and author, he brought keen intelligence and passionate support to the Museum and its Library, notably continuing his family's longstanding support of the Museum's ornithology research and collections. Our deepest sympathies go to his wife, Ada, and the entire Lamont family. Lewis W. Bernard, Chairman Ellen V. Futter, President
