Hugh E. Mullen

[Michigan City Dispatch.]
A Bright Young Physician Has Passed Away.

Dr. Hugh Mullen, of Hammond, Ind., died in this city at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon of chronic throat disease, known as laryngitis. Dr. Mullen had been sick about a year, and five weeks ago he was brought to this city and placed under the care of his brother, Dr. A. J. Mullen, Jr. It was manifest that the patient could not long survive, and all that could be done was to ameliorate his sufferings and make him as comfortable as possible. He was getting along comparatively well until two days prior to his death, when he taken with a relapse and sank rapidly thereafter.

Dr. Hugh E. Mullen was born in Napoleon, Ind., on Dec. 25, 1858. His primary education was obtained in the public schools at Madison, Ind. From there he went to St. Joseph's College, Tentopolis, Ill., where he studied for two years, and then finished his collegiate education at St. Louis. His medical education was received at Keokuk, Iowa, and St. Louis. Dr. Mullen was a graduate in pharmacy and followed that profession for three years in Leadville, Col. He then finished his medical education and located at Hammond, Ind., where he had been established ever since, and had a large practice until this sad affliction came upon him. Hard work and exposure day and night made him susceptible to the trouble that ended his career.

Dr. Mullen's remains will be taken to the family burial place at Madison, Ind., leaving this evening at 5 o'clock by way of the Michigan Central for Hammond and thence south by way of Monon. The remains will be accompanied by relatives from this city, and other members will meet at Madison. The requiem high mass was offer up at St. Mary's church this morning at 7:30 o'clock for the repose of his soul and brief services were also held this afternoon.

This includes transportation to and from Madison, and was done in recognition of Dr. Mullen's services of many years as surgeon of the road. The party will consist of twelve, namely: Mrs. Lizzie Mullen, wife of the deceased; Dr. A. J. Mullen, Sr., St. Louis; Mrs. A. J. Mullen, Jr.; Dr. A. J. Mullen, Jr.; Mrs. Thomas Donnelly, Mrs. Angela Donnelly, Eulalia and Carlon Mullen and nurse, Miss Emma Gabbert, Rev. Father J. Bleckmann, Dr. M. A. Schutt, J. B. Collins, Daniel Huganin, Chicago, and William Foodhue.

Dr. Mullen was very popular among those who knew him. His cheerful and pleasant demeanor won friends wherever he went and these characteristics asserted themselves even in affliction.
