THE PAKISTAN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
In Memoriam Ghulam Mohammad : (1913 -1967)
Ghulam Mohammad, Senior Economist of the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics, died in a hospital in Rome in September 1967. His death has left the Institute with a void which will never be quite filled. An able arid experienced civil servant, a masterful student of bureaucracy, a wide ranging, technical¬ly proficient agricultural scientist, a tireless and energetic researcher, a bright chee¬ry, irrepressible and eternally youthful colleague—Ghulam Mohammad was all these things and more. From the humble background of a Punjabi tenant farming family, he rose, by virtue of his intelligence, natural talent, energy and hard work, to a position of recognized professional excellence, eminence, and stature, respected and admired in Pakistan and abroad, even by those who disagreed with his views. His career is an inspiration to any aspiring young professional, particularly in a society which only recently has begun to replace ascriptive quali¬ties by merit and achievement as bases for position, status, and prestige.
