Mr. Frank De Wolf Granger, a distinguished officer of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, died at Somerville, Massachusetts on December 9, 1913. Mr. Granger was born December 30, 1846, and entered the service July 1, 1864. During the following winter he served with distinction as an officer of the survey under General J. G. Foster before Savannah, Charleston and Port Royal. He remained in the survey as long as he lived taking part in many field operations to perfect the charts published by the government to safeguard life and property along the coasts of the United States. Through nearly half a century he thus served his country with unusual ability.

For several years preceding his death he represented the United States Commissioner in a Canadian field party engaged in surveying and remarking the international boundary between the United States and Canada.

A letter testifying to the value of the services of Mr. Granger was addressed by the Secretary on December 12, to Mrs. H. A. Chapin, Mr. Granger's sister.
