In the death of Dr. Eugene Hodenpyl, the medical profession has lost a great man and a rare spirit. To die at the age of forty-six, when ready to enter the door which one has opened to a great discovery, is one of the tragedies of life. To have succumbed to pneumonia, because he was too worn with work to rally, places Dr. Hodenpyl in the ranks of the martyrs of science.
Until a few years previous to his death, Dr. Hodenpyl had been associated with Columbia College as pathologist, but during the last few years his work was done at Roosevelt Hospital. The laboratory of the latter institution may gain no little credit from having been the scene of Dr. Hodenpyl's successful experiments on the relief and possibly the cure of cancer.
