    Obituary from A1 of the Friday, Jan. 2, 1959 Courier Journal (Louisville):
    Anatomy Professor Kornhauser Of U. of L. Medical School Dies
    Dean Calls Him Most Beloved

    Dr. Sidney I. Kornhauser, long-time professor of anatomy at the University of Louisville Medical School and one of the most beloved members of the faculty died early yesterday.

    Death came to the 71-year-old professor in his sleep about 2 a.m. at his home, 3931 North Western Parkway.

    He had suffered a heart attack about 12 years ago and had been under a doctor's care, but had not been ill recently.

    Planning to Quit

    For 36 years until last June, he was chariman of the Medical School's department of anatomy. He continued as professor, however, and took over the additional duty of director of admissions.

    In about three weeks, he was to have quit teaching entirely.

    Dr. J. Murray Kinsman, dean of the school, said Dr. Kornhauser would have continued in the admissions post, however. Also, the dean had planned for Dr. Kornahuser to become a student adviser of director of student affairs.

    The dean called Dr. Kornhauser "probably the most beloved teacher by his past students on the whole faculty."

    Dr. Kinsman explained that the freshman students, all of whom were required to take Dr. Kornhauser's microscopic anatomy course, were perhaps a "bit afraid" of th professor. He was demanding by completely fair, the dean said.

    But once finished with the course, the students "looked back with a great deal of affection" on Dr. Kornhauser, Dr. Kinsman said. He continued: "He knew them all. He had a flair for keeping up with his former students and remembering things about them. We will miss him greatly."

    Said another colleague of Dr. Kornhauser's: "He was a dedicated person and an ideal teacher. He loved teaching. He loved the Medical School. He loved the students."

    Scholarship named for Him

    Dr. Kornhauser was not a medical doctor. His doctor's degree was a Ph. D., earned at Harvard University in 1912.

    Yet he was an honorary member of the Jefferson County Medical Society -- the first non-M.D. in many years to be so honored in 1956.

    He was also an honorary member of Alpha Omega Alpha [continued on page A9] national medical honor society, and of the Phi Delta Epsilon medical fraternity, whose Graduate Club here named a scholarship fund after him.

    A "pet project" of Dr. Kornhauser's was the Medical School library, maintained jointly with the County Medical Society at the school.

    He was chairman of the school's library committee and led annual campaigns to raise money for new books and to buy medical periodicals.

    Headed Rhodes Committee

    For several years until last year, he headed the Kentucky selection committee for Rhodes Scholarships to Oxford University in Englad.

    From 1928 to 1948, he was executive secretary of the Medical School. He resigned after touching off a contraversy with charges that political pressure was being used to get students in the school School and university officials denied the charges.

    Dr. Kornhauser was a founder of the Biological Stains Commission, which has worked with inductry since the early 1920's to standardize stains used to study tissues under the microscope. He was commission secretary for many years.

    Studied in Germany

    He was an honorary consultant to the Army Medical Library in Washington.

    Dr. Kornhauser was a native of Cleveland and was graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1908. One of his classmates, and valedictorian of the class, was Anna Viola Marshall of McKeesport, Pa. They were married five years later. Mrs. Kornhauser survives.

    He did graduate work at Harvard and at the University of Halle and University of Wurzburg, both in Germany. He came to the U. of L. Medical School in 1922 as professor and chairman of anatomy.

    Previously he had taught at George Washington University, Washington, D.C.; Harvard; Northwestern University, Chicago, and Denison University, Granville, Ohio.

    He served as a lieutenant in the Army Sanitary Corps in World War I, and remained active for many years in the Army reserve.

    Dr. Kornhauser published more than 25 papers on biology and anatomy, and patented a dissecting table and a method of staining body tissues.

    He is survived also by three children, Albert E. Kornhauser, Glen Ellyn, Ill., treasurer of a thermostatic controls firm; Dr. Edward T. Kornhauser, who teaches electronics at Brown University, Providence, R.I., and Mrs. Frank H. Miller, Jr., Louisville; a sister, Miss Carrie Kornhauser, Pittsburgh, and nine grandchildren.

    The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Pearson's, 149 Breckinridge Lane. Burial will be in Zachary Taylor National Cemetery.
