It is our sad duty to report the death, on May 8, 1979 at Detroit, of Russell W. Parkinson, Jr., age 52, after a lengthy illness. Russ was a longtime observer of steamboats and had been a member of T.M.H.S. for many years. He belonged to several other similar groups, notably the Marine Historical Society of Detroit, which he served as president at the time of his passing, and the Great Lakes Maritime Institute, of which he was a director.

To Mrs. Parkinson and to the other members of the family, we extend our deepest sympathy.
