Alden W. Gallup, Victim of Influenza
Alden W. Gallup died on December 17, 1918, of pneumonia after having had influenza. He was born in 1890, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Mozart Gallup. Alden Gallup earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell in 1913. He had been employed at the Hinde and Dauch Company in Sandusky. Alden left behind a wife, Helen, and a young son. Alden W. Gallup was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. In 1916, Alden W. Gallup and Daniel Kelleher were issued a patent for a wrapper package. The assignee was the Hinde and Dauch Paper Company. It is so sad that such a bright young man had such a short life. Rest in peace Mr. Gallup.
