Carl Fred Ehlers, junior hydrographic and geodetic engineer, died suddenly on November 8, while on duty as chief of party engaged on shore work near Ocean City, Maryland.

He was appointed in the Coast Survey on August 15, 1924, and because of his enthusiasm and industry and the painstaking care with which he did all of his work, rendered valuable service. At the time of his death he was on his first assignment as chief of party.
