This chapter narrates the events that surrounded Joseph Grinnell's sudden death in the spring of 1939. It shows that his death had the biggest blow in the life of Alexander since her father died. The chapter examines a document that Grinnell drew up shortly before his death, which reiterated the objectives of the institution, the museum program's six foci, and the museum's functions and role within the context of the university and community. It then shifts to Alden H. Miller and E. Raymond Hall, two strong contenders for Grinnell's legacy.

Keywords:   Joseph Grinnell, death, document, Alden H. Miller, E. Raymond Hall, museum functions, museum program
