About Dr. Henry Clay Baum

For many years Dr. Baum was actively interested in the National guard. Although a commissioned officer in the guard, he enlisted as a private in the Second regiment, N.Y.V.L. at the outbreak of the Spanish war. He was eventually promoted to surgeon with the rank of major.

During his term of service with the infantry, Dr. Baum won the admiration of all with whom he came in contact. On one occasion a member of the company became seriously ill. Dr. Baum sacrificed his cot that his comrade might rest comfortably. He slept on the ground in the meantime. After several days he developed a severe case of bronchitis, from which he suffered from time to time for the remainder of his life.
