Obituary (New York Times, Jan. 16, 1908):

EDWARD H. STROBEL DEAD

Had been General Adviser to the Government of Siam since 1903.

Bangkok, Siam, Jan. 15.--Edward Henry Strobel, general adviser to the Government of Siam, died to-day after a long illness, in the course of which several surgical operations were performed. These operations became necessary on account of blood-poisoning due to the bite of an insect in Egypt two years ago. The death of Prof. Strobel at this time is considered a great loss to Siam.
---
Edward Henry Strobel, Bemis Professor of International Law at Harvard, resigned from that chair in 1906 to assume a post permanently with the Government of Siam as general adviser. Prior to this, since 1903, he had been acting in a similar capacity while on an extended leave of absence granted him by Harvard.

Prof. Strobel was born in Charleston, S.C., in 1855. He was connected with the United States Legation at Madrid for a time, and in 1893-4 was Third Assistant Secretary of State at Washington. Later he served as American Minister to Ecuador and to Chile. Resigning this post in 1897, Mr. Strobel served as arbitrator of the Frerault claim between France and Chile. He was counsel for Chile before the United States and Chilean Claims Commission in Washington in 1899.
