"DIED--On August 6, 1902, Dr. Erasmus Darwin Beach died at his home in Baronne street. Dr. Beach was one of the best known physicians in New Orleans and in many ways identified himself with professional work. He was a member of the local Medical Society and identified with it since its organization. The deceased leaves a number of children and many grandchildren with whose bereavement the Journal warmly sympathizes.

"Erasmus D. Beach, M.D. Medical College of Ohio, Cincinnati, 1842, the oldest physician in New Orleans, died in that City, August 5, aged 87. He was the elected coroner of New Orleans in 1856 and served two terms, during which he framed and succeeded in passing an ordinance that tended to prevent steamboat explosions and other accidents by which such heavy losses of life occurred at New Orleans and on the lower Mississippi River."
