The following paragraph is from the report of the meeting of the American Association as given in the Cincinnati Commercial:
"President George J. Brush called the meeting to order and announced that the Association invited Professor Thomas Meehan to address the section of Biology at the next meeting in Montreal. This action was taken for the reason that Professor Meehan has several times been invited to accept the Vice-Presidency of the Association, but has for personal reasons always refused. The resolution was passed to express the appreciation of the members of the Association of his contributions to science, and his constant devotion to the interests of this body. [Applause]."
