IN MEMORIAM: Dr. George Rennell Merriam, III
George Merriam died on Thursday, September 26, 2013, in what appears to be an accidental fall in the Mt. Rainier, Washington area, while hiking alone. George was a main leader behind the annual Merriam reunions held at Meriam's Corner in the Minuteman National Historical Park in Concord, Massachusetts for many years. Dr. Merriam was a Professor of Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology and Nutrition at the University of Washington in Seattle. George will be very much missed and our hearts go out to his wife, immediate and extended family and friends.
