Death of Dr. John W. Dunn

The death of Dr. John W. Dunn, a well-known physician of Capitol Hill, which took place at his residence, 129 B street southeast, yesterday afternoon, causes much regret and deep sympathy for his family. Dr. Dunn was only thirty years of age, but had already built up a large practice. He studied medicine with the late Dr. C.M. Ford, and at his death succeeded to the larger portion of Dr. Ford's practice. A few weeks ago he was in attendance on a very severe case of diphtheria and he took the disease, which resulted in his death yesterday. He married a Miss Marche of East Washington four years ago, and she survives him with three children. His funeral will take place from the Church of the
Reformation Friday morning at 11 o'clock.
