In memory of Milman Parry, assistant professor of Greek and Latin, who died in Los Angeles on December 3, a service in Appleton Chapel will be held at 4 o'clock this afternoon.
The Reverend William Learoyd Sperry, chairman of the Board of Preachers, will conduct the service, and Charles B. Gulick '21, Eliot professor of Greek Literature, will speak.
Professor Parry died as the result of an accidental discharge of his pistol while he was unpacking his suitcase in a Los Angeles hotel room. He had studied in the University of Southern California and received his degree of Dr.-Es-Lettres at the University of Paris in 1928. At Paris he studied under the Croiset brothers, two of the foremost classical scholars of their time, and he himself was a noted authority on Homer, about whom he had written several books.
