John Robert Eyer died at Carlsbad, New Mexico, on January 30, 1976. J. G. Watts and W. A. Iselin (1976), his former colleagues in the Department of Botany and Entomology at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, wrote an obituary and quite naturally focused on Eyer's work at the University's Agricultural Experiment Station. Since Dr. Eyer's first positions in entomology were in Pennsylvania, we have prepared this biographical sketch to preserve the record of his early accomplishments.
