MRS HASKELL DAVIS DIES IN CAMBRIDGE
Columbia Woman Succumbs to Pneumonia Following Attack of Influenza

News received in Columbia yesterday, announcing the death in Cambridge Tuesday night of Mrs Susanne Haskell Davis, wife of Harvey N Davis, professor of mathematics at Harvard University, came as a shock to a wide circle of friends here and cast a shadow of sorrow over New Year's Day. She was a sister of Mrs Christie Benet and of Porter Haskell of this city.

Having been taken sick with influenza on Christmas day she was unable to resist the pneumonia, which developed and she passed away just as the new year came in. The occurrence is made doubly sad by the coincident death of an infant son.

She is survived by her husband, who for the last year has been prominently engaged in war work in Washington and by two little daughters, aged five and three years.

Mrs Davis, who was 32 years of age, was the youngest of the ten children of the late Col and Mrs Alexander Cheves Haskell and her death brings the first break among the brothers and sisters. Having lived all her life in Columbia until her marriage, she was widely beloved and appreciated for her gentle womanliness and for the strength of her character and intellect.
