Delphi Journal, first week of April, 1951.

Dr. Hubert Gros, 47, prominent Delphi physician and native son, died
early Sunday morning at St. Elizabeth hospital, Lafayette.  Dr. Gros'
death followed an operation two weeks ago for the removal of a gall
bladder and complications.  He underwent additional surgery Saturday
in a fruitless attempt to save his life.  Dr. Gros had not been well
since his returning from duty with the Army Medical Corps where he
served as an officer in the China-Burma-India theater.

His death came as a shock to the community where he was born and
reared and where he returned to practice medicine.  Hundreds of
patients, friends, and fellow physicians called at the Jackson funeral
home on Monday and Tuesday to pay their respects to the beloved
doctor.  The final tributes were said to have been the most elaborate
and numerous in the history of the community.

Born here January 19, 1904, he was the son of William and Fannie
(Roll) Gros, prominent residents of the community.  His marriage was
to Jean Kramer on October 17, 1935.

After graduating from Delphi high school in 1922, he attended Indiana
University's school of Medicine, later serving as an intern at
hospitals in Indianapolis, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, and Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania.  He served as resident physician in the American
hospital, Paris, France, and for a year as resident physician at
Culver Military Academy.

He returned here from Culver and opened his office for the practice of
general medicine.  He served as county coroner and as city health

medical associations, the American Legion, IOOF, and was a 32nd degree
