American Geologist and Paleontologist, who was also the grandson of US President and General Ulysses S. Grant.

The son of Ulysses S. Grant, Jr, he was born at his father's farm, Merryweather Farm, near Salem Center, NY, and shortly after his birth, the family moved to San Diego, California, where he was raised. Grant studied geology at Harvard University, graduating cum laude in 1915, and for the next two years, he mined for gold in Mexico. When the United States entered World War I in 1917, he enlisted as a Private in the US Army, and by the end of the war, had been promoted to Second Lieutenant. After the war, from 1919 to 1925, he worked at the New York Stock Exchange, then returned to school, taking graduate courses at the University of California at Berkeley. From 1927 to 1929, he studied Paleontology at Stanford University, where he received his Doctorate degree in 1929. He then worked for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County as curator of invertegrate paleontology, then two years later taught paleontology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Retiring in 1959, he is the author of several books and articles relating to paleontology, including "Catalogue of the Marine Pliocene and Pleistocene Mollusca of California" (1931), "The Cenozoic Brachiopoda of Western North America" (1944), and "A Sojourn in Baja California" (1963). He was married twice, first to Matilda Grant, and when she died, he married again, to Frances Dean. Grant died at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California, from lung failure due to leukemia. He was buried along side of his father. (Bio by Kit and Morgan Benson)
