    Notes: The past year has been marked by a number of changes in our administration and in the personnel of our Board: some most desireable; one most deplorable. This latter has reference to the sudden and untimely death of our beloved President, Dr. Samuel Leon Frank. The demise of an able, affable and charitable man is always a loss to the community in which he lived, but to our Institution Dr. Frank’s death is doubly deplorable. It came at a time when the hospital was undergoing changes in the conduct of its affairs and was beginning to evidence the wisdom of his administration by a betterment in its methods and a marked increase in its usefulness; a time when we were relying on his ability and judgment for guidance. For thirty-six years he was connected with this Institution in one capacity or another devoting of the best years of his life to its service. In his death a considerable portion of the fruits of his labor is to be applied to its greater good.
