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.

from Stephen Pierce; land was sold to Nathaniel Aber on 22 July 1857 for
$100 by Edward Plaisted and Rachel
granddaughter, Florence Plaisted, wrote the following about her: "I do remember my grandmother Plaisted as I made my home with her at different times when I was a child, my own mother having died when I was very young. They had a very large farm with a large house and big red barns. She was a very religious woman and drove her own horse and buggy to Rexville to Church every Sunday and in good weather to Prayer Meeting during this week. I have been with her many times. She afterward moved to Greenwood, N.Y., where she was a great worker in the Methodist Church. She was also a member of the W.C.T.U. She liked to read and had a good many books."

grandaughter, Mabel Scott Loeven, wrote the following about her:
"One of my earliest recollections is of being brought to see my grand-parents. They had a large many-roomed farmhouse about a mile from the nearest village. The living-room was dominated by a large "bay-window" filled with all kinds of flowering house-plants.
"In the center of the room stood a round coal stove whose red coals could be seen through its isinglass windows. And then my grandfather, always sitting in his wheelchair, for on account of his heart disease he could not lie down. We children had to be quiet.
"Grandfather died in 1897 and the funeral service was held in the large living toom, all the grown-ups in a semi-circle and the children on the floor in front. We cried because our parents did, although I wondered why my grandmother could cry since she was no "relation" to him.
"The house was immense with many rooms upstairs and down and an adjoining house for the farmer and his wife who ran the farm, with its many horses and cows. The house had many gables; "The House of Seven Gables," we children called it after we had read Hawthorne's famous story of that name.
"There were two barns, on of which was called the "horse-barn," and a granary where various grains were stored. We children found that a mouthful of wheat grain chewed for a long time made a good chewing gum.
"One of the horses was a large bay horse named Bill. He was very gentle and was the one assigned to Grandma Plaisted for her own use. Hitched to a small buggy, he took Grandma and her grandchildren everywhere. My little sister wanted to ride him, so Grandma lifted her to his back while he was fully harnessed and hitched to the buggy.
"When my sister Eva and I were about ten and twelve years old, we often spent Saturday and Sunday at my Grandmother's farm. We would walk the mile and a half to school on Friday morning, but in the afternoon instead of going home, we would walk about the same distance to my Grandmother's. Monday morning we reversed the process and I always cried when we had to leave. I remember that the upstairs bedroom where we slept had a large picture on the wall of "Moses in the Bulrushes."
"About a mile from the farm there was a small Methodist church attended by my Grandmother and us children when we visited her. Most fun were the ice cream festivals given to raise money for the church. The women cooked the vanilla-flavored custard and the men chopped the ice and turned the freezer handle. We children took pleasure in licking the dasher when it was removed all covered with delicious ice cream.
"grandmother was always doing things with her grandchildren. There was the candy-making -- taffy-colored molasses candy which was boiled and then pulled until it had the right consistency and then cut off in short chunks with the kitchen shears. We ate these with walnut meats which we cracked and picked ourselves, accompanied by her jokes and conundrums.
"Grandma had what seemed to me very grand clothes, the only item of which I remember is a black sealskin coat. The dresses were lined as they are today and many were trimmed with passementerie.
"Thanksgiving and Christmas we gathered at Grandma's for dinner -- aunts and uncles and fourteen grandchildren, if they all came. The delicious cakes were something to be remembered -- three-layered white cakes with cocanut frosting or layer cakes with a cooked raisin filling. My father, Grandma's only son-in-law, admitted that she was a very good cook.
"For Christmas presents the girls always recieved sterling silver, initialed teaspoons and a book. I have forgotten what the boys recieved. Long winter evenings she had pored over catalogs from the Methodist Book Concern in New York to find books suitable for children.
"Her garden was her pride and joy with all kinds of flowers and vegetables. I remember most vividly the climbing, fragrant sweet peas in delicate, pastel colors. In the Spring the seed catalogs arrived and we had fun helping to select the flower and vegetable seeds.
"When she became older, the beautiful farm was sold and she moved to a small house in Greenwood, N.Y., near her son, Edward, who operated a hardware store there. There she organized the Women's Christian Temperance Union and was active in the Methodist Church. Although there were other churches in the town, this one had the High School graduation exercises and she saw her grandchildren graduate, attend Sunday School, Epworth League and join the Church.
"Evenings Grandma and I often read to each toher or looked over the Methodist Discipline, hymn books and the magazine published by the Church.
"When she died at the age of seventy-four, she left no estate but some beautiful furniture and the remaining members of a grateful and sorrowing family."
