Robinson, Captain Jay H. of Oakland. Cal., died at the American Hospital, Constantinople, from pneumonia on December 10, 1920. During the influx of Russian refugees lo Constantinople following the collapse of General Wrangel’s anti-Bolshevik forces in Crimea, Captain Robinson worked night and day distributing food and caring for the sick and wounded. The illness from which he died was brought on by exposure and overwork while engaged in this service .
