Washington, DC Knickerbocker Theatre Roof Collapse - Shaughnessey Death

E. H. SHAUGHNESSY DIES FROM INJURIES AT KNICKERBOCKER

Washington, D. C., Feb 2. – Second Assistant Postmaster General E. H. Shaughnessy died early today at the Walter Reed Hospital, a victim of the Knickerbocker Theatre disaster. He made a game fight against death and the physicians tried hard to ward off the end. Blood transfusions taken from strong soldiers made him rally for a time but the injury to his pelvis was so severe that it was impossible to save his life. In another Shaughnessy’s wife and daughter are slowly recovering from their injuries.
