Century Memorial

Frederick Putnam Gulliver devoted his life to the study and teaching of science. Graduated at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, an investigator under a traveling fellowship of Harvard, a student at the Universities of Berlin and Vienna, for five years topographer of the United States Geological Survey, he brought to his work in the education of others a full mind and a ripe experience. He had been a non-resident member of the Century during the past decade.
