AMI, Henry M., Canadian scientist, born in Belle-Riviere, Quebec, 23 November 1858. He was graduated at McGill College in 1882, and in June of the same year was appointed on the paleontological staff of the geological survey of Canada. In 1886 he was assistant paleontologist, and during the same year was engaged in the determination, identification, and classification of the fossil remains of Canada, in connection with the museum and geological survey at Ottawa. His first paper on geology was read at Ottawa in 1881, and in 1882 his work on "The Utica Formation in Canada" was published. Then followed "Notes on Triarthrus spinosus, Billings," and various reports on the stratigraphy and paleontology of Ottawa and vicinity, and a catalogue of fossils.
