Jersey City, N.J.

First Lieutenant Harold William Brown died of heart failure at Camp Leach, Washington, D.C.

Brown was born on April 24, 1886, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William F. Brown, of Jersey City, N. J. He prepared at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, and entered the Cornell Medical College in 1904, receiving the degree of M. D. in 1908.

He served a term as interne at Christ Hospital, Jersey City, and later opened an office for general practice. In the fall of 1917, he was about to enter the service, but suffered an attack of grippe, followed by pneumonia, and was forced to postpone his application until the spring of 1918.

Then, with the approval of his associates, he enlisted in the Medical Corps, and was commissioned a first lieutenant, and was assigned to Camp Leach, a camp of engineers.

When the epidemic of influenza broke out in the camp, his work was very heavy, and he died very suddenly of heart failure, probably induced by the hard and continuous work among the men. 
Cremated, Location of ashes is unknown.
