Abstract

Dr Arthur Richard Ivor Cruickshank died
on 4th December 2011, aged 79, in the
Borders General Hospital, Melrose, Scotland.
Arthur Cruickshank was part of the post-war
generation of palaeontologists who laid the
foundations on which today’s researchers
build. Appropriately for someone from
an expatriate Scots family living in Kenya,
much of his work was on the extinct reptiles
of the great southern palaeocontinent of
Gondwana.
