Obituary from New York Times, May 12, 1973
Dr. Marian Irwin Osterhout, long associated with the Rockefeller University and the Marine Biological Laboratory as a researcher and assistant to her late husband, the late Winthrop J. V. Osterhout, died Thursday at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. She was 84 years old and lived at 160 East 65th Street.
With her husband, who with Jacques Loeb had founded the Journal of General Physiology, Dr. Osterhout was a pioneer in general physiology.
She was born in Tokyo, the daughter of Richard Walker Irwin, an American diplomat, who married a member of the Japanese nobility, Iki Takechi. After attending the Japanese Nobles School, she came to the United States, graduated from Bryn Mawr College, and was one of the first women to receive a Ph.D. degree from Radcliffe-Harvard.
She held a National Research Council Fellowship at Harvard from 1923 to 1925 before joining the faculty of Rockefeller University.
