We're sorry to report that William Breed, long time geology curator at the Museum of Northern Arizona, and prominent researcher, died in Flagstaff on January 22. Bill Parker, paleontologist at Petrified Forest National Park, noted in his Chinleana blog that Breed had a "long and accomplished career predominantly studying the geology and paleontology of the southwestern U.S. He is also well known for his work with Edwin (Ned) Colbert and Jim Jensen in Antarctica in 1969 when they discovered fossil evidence supporting the idea of Continental Drift."
