From: Andrew L Christenson 

On Tuesday I received the following from Joan Silk of the Department of
Anthropology at UCLA -
    
"This week begins with very sad news. Jim Hill died on Saturday morning,
the end of a long and very courageous battle with cancer. Jim has had a
long and distinguished career at UCLA, and was deeply committed to the
practice of Anthropology as a holistic discipline. His friends, colleagues,
and students will miss his calm patience, gentle humor, clear insight, and
great sense of fairness and integrity.
    
A memorial service for Jim will be held on Monday, August 11, at 4:30 pm in
the West Alumni Center on the UCLA campus...
    
In lieu of flowers, Jim's family has requested that donations be made to
the James N. Hill Fellowship for Undergraduate Research in Anthropology.
Checks should be made out to the UCLA Foundation. Please write JNH on the
memo line and send checks to Jeanne Ladner (Dept. of Anthropology, UCLA,
Los Angeles, CA 90095)"
