Claudius Henry Mastin, M.D., University of Pennsylvania, 1849, died at Mobile, Ala., October 3, aged 72 years. He served as a surgeon in the Confederate Army and was a member of several scientific bodies.
In the death of Dr. Mastin the medical profession has lost one of its most learned and active members. The American Surgical Association will miss him, and the Alumni Association of the University of Pennsylvania is deprived of one of the ablest and most efficient workers for the University. A loyal friend, a gentleman and a scholar, his life is now only a sweet memory, but his surviving friends will cherish it while they remain on earth as an undying possession.
