George Irving Adams, head of the Department of Geology and Mineralogy in the University of Alabama, passed away suddenly September 8, 1932, as the result of a heart attack.
President George H. Denny expressed the sentiments of the university faculty and students in the following brief tribute: “We shall keenly feel the loss of Doctor Adams. He was a fine gentleman. No member of our faculty was more deeply interested in research. He was perhaps the leading spirit on the campus in all matters relating to research. Doctor Adams was outstanding in his loyalty to the best ideals of the university. He was a man of rare culture and of remarkable devotion to duty. He was conscientious, high-minded, and untiring. We mourn his loss. We shall cherish his memory.”
George Irving Adams was born at Lena, Illinois, August 17, 1870, . . .
