BRODBECK, Dr. Conrad - Dr. Brodbeck, late a Senatorial delegate to the Republican National Convention, at Chicago, died at his residence in Dayton, Ohio, on the 28th ult. [Belmont chronicle.(St. Clairsville, Ohio), July 05, 1860]

Conrad Brodbeck - Died, in Dayton, Ohio, on the 22d of June, Dr. Conrad Brodbeck, aged about 50 years. The deceased was a native of Germany; he came to this country in 1835, resided five years in Philadelphia, and removed to Dayton in 1840, where he has since been engaged in the practice of his profession. His education was acquired in the University of Heidelberg. As a man, Dr. Brodbeck was quiet, plain and unostentatious in his manners; he preferred that his works, rather than his creed, should manifest his character, and the benevolence of his heart is attested by the orphan children he adopted and brought up as his own. His many virtues had won for him the respect of his fellow citizens, a large concourse of whom followed him to the grave. Dr. Brodbeck was a careful, cautious practitioner, of good judgment, and although not engaged in an extensive business, he had acquired the confidence of community sufficiently to maintain himself in a good practice. In his intercourse with his professional brethren, he was courteous and honorable, and always preferred taking any course to one which would lead him into strife. His last illness probably commenced about three years ago, but it suffered a great aggravation from the fatigue and exposure incident to attending the Chicago Convention, to which body he was a delegate. A post mortem examination revealed extensive empyema of the left side, dilatation of the right side of the heart, and an amount of valvular ossification very unusual. Dr. Brodbeck was a member of the State Medical Society and of the Montgomery County Medical Society. The latter Society held a special meeting, and passed the following resolutions:
- Resolved, That by the death of Dr. Brodbeck society has lost a valuable member, and our Association one whose professional education and ability, correct habits and unassuming manners, commanded our esteem and respect.
- Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with his family and friends in the affliction which has fallen upon them, and we will manifest our appreciation of the worth of the deceased by attending his funeral. [The Cincinnati Lancet & Observer, Volume 3; Volume 21]
