Reported by the Chicago Daily Tribune on this day in 1950:


Dr. Henry Bazett, professor of the University of Pennsylvania physiological medical school, died of a heart attack aboard the liner Queen Mary, on the way to New York, said a radio message today.

According to a 1921 edition of The Pennsylvania Gazette, Dr. Bazett came to his post that year at the age of 35 from Oxford University in England where he was "one of the foremost authorities on physiology...[and] one of the leading younger scientific men of the world."

He was en route to the International Physiological Congress in Copenhagen when he passed away.
