"More than twenty years of pro-
ductive effort and his wide per-
zonal contacts with other work-
srs have secured him this place in
he world of science" he says. In
pointing to the work of President
Ruthven, Professor Gaige com-

he has made, and the publications
that have resulted from these trips
and other forms of research.
The nature of the publications
based on these explorations show
plainly President Ruthven's wide,
interest in the field of zoology, ac-
cording to Professor Gaige. Present- J
ed in them are studies on the
geographical distribution of ani-
mals, ecology, life histories, and
other biological studies, descriptions
of new species and genera, on or-
thogensis, faunal lists. In addition
to his specialty of reptiles and arm-
phibians, he has published articles
on mollusca, spiders, insects, fishes,
birds and animals.
