Dr. G. Harvey Cameron, professor emeritus of physics at Hamilton College, Clinton, N.Y., died last Saturday in Faxton Hospital, Utica, N.Y., after a lengthy illness. He was 75 years old and lived in Clinton.

Professor Cameron, a native of Streetsville, Ontario, received his bachelor's degree at the University of Saskatchewan, and his doctorate in physics at the California Institute of Technology, where he studied under Robert C. Millikan, the Nobel Prize winner.

In 1928, Professor Cameron was appointed to an experimental station of the E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Company in Wilmington, Del. There he worked with Crawford H. Greenwalt, later the company's president, on problems in X‐ray defraction and particle‐size determination.
