Major General Robert McCarrison


Robert McCarrison, who died in May 1960 in Oxford at the age of 82, is the seventh member of the Nutrition Society to be commemorated by an obituary memoir in this Journal for outstanding contributions to the modern science of nutrition. A pioneer worker of great originality, he was one of the founders of the science and a leader in applying it. The fact that his work was done not in Western laboratories but in isolated places in British India lends interest and significance to his life history and achievements.
