The rich and productive career of Carlyle S. Smith, a well-known historical archaeologist, prehistorian of the Great Plains region, and archaeologist of the East Pacific, has now ended. His death occurred December 13, 1993, following by-pass surgery. This was within only a few months of his most recent publication on Easter Island research (Smith 1993) and his enthusiastic participation in the 3rd International Conference on Easter Island Research: Rapa Nui Rendezvous '93. These quite recent accomplishments in spite of his failing health, stand as testimony to Smith's enduring interest in and dedication to Easter Island investigations.
