Fremont Morse,
Lieutenant Commander of the Coast and Geodetic Survey retired on March 1, 1924, died on April 5, 1936. Born January 19, 1857, in Manchester, Massachusetts. He received his Ph. B. degree at the University of California in 1879, and entered the service of the Survey September 1, 1879. Practically all of his time was spent on the Pacific coast, an outstanding accomplishment being his triangulation and topographic work in connection with the Alaska-Canada boundary survey. He was also in charge of the San Francisco field station. A lovable character and hard worker, he made a friend of everyone he met.
