Grandson of C. Hart Merriam Praises Centennial Issue of Journal of Mammalogy

Dear Editor,

I have been a life member of the Society since the 1960s, but this is the first time I have written to the Journal. I am an ecologist with a strong interest in mammalogy, partly due my father who was a pioneer range and wildlife ecologist, and my grandfather, C Hart Merriam. 

I have just selectively read essentially the whole of Volume 100, Number 3, and I am tremendously impressed.  You have done a magnificent job of assembling pertinent information about the Society, the science of mammalogy, and the history.  My warm congratulations! This number should be required reading for all mammalogists.

With appreciation,

Lee Talbot
