Professor Fritz Marti passed away in his sleep November 23, 1991, in Tucson, Arizona, where he lived with a daughter since 1987. He would have been 98 years old on January 1st. Born in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1894, Marti served in the Swiss Army during the First World War as an engineer and as an intelligence officer in England at the war's outset, preventing German nationals from returning to Germany under the guise of Swiss citizenship. He took his Doctorate of Philosophy at the University of Bern in 1922 and came to the United States that year to teach at the University of Oregon.
