Alfred Sherwood Romer (1894-1973)

American vertebrate paleontologist. Although his speciality was in Paleozoic amphibians and the origins of tetrapods, Romer's knowledge of vertebrate anatomy was wide-ranging. Romer participated in the founding of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, helped to recruit Simpson to Harvard University, and wrote a textbook that became the standard reference in the field for nearly a half century.
