About Harlan Wilbur Fisk

Prof. Harlan W. Fisk

THE science of terrestrial magnetism has lost an outstanding investigator and the staff of the Carnegie Institution of Washington an esteemed member by the sudden death, on December 26, of Prof. Harlan Wilbur Fisk, chief of the Section of Land Magnetic Survey of the Institution's Department of Terrestrial Magnetism. During his long period of service with that organisation, extending over more than a quarter-century, he contributed much to the success of the world magnetic survey both by personal participation in the observational work and by planning and supervising the work at repeat-stations for obtaining data where most needed for investigations in his complex field. Prof. Fisk was born at Geneva, Kansas, on September 25, 1869, but his youth was spent in Minnesota where he received his fundamental scientific training at Carleton College, Northfield.
