Dr. Thomas T. Sabine, the distinguished surgeon, son of Dr. Gustavos A. Sabine, who survives him, died August 23d, having been ill for some time with a complication of diseases. He was graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, in 1864, and in 1879 was appointed Professor of Anatomy in the College. For a number of years he was attending surgeon to Bellevue Hospital, St. Luke's Hospital, the New York Orthopedic Dispensary and Hospital, and other institutions, and he was highly esteemed for his many genial qualities no less than for his marked professional ability and rare skill as an operator. 


THOMAS T. SABINE, M. D.,  But few of the noted medical men who have passed away within the past year have been more universally regretted than Professor Thomas T. Sabine of this city. Although an invalid for nearly the whole period of his professional life, he proved how much faithful and arduous work could be accomplished under trying circumstances of physical disability. No one can appreciate such a trial more thoroughly than the medical man himself, who is convinced that his disease is incurable and that he must stubbornly work his way without hope. There is no heroism superior to this. Dr. Sabine bravely faced such an issue, and kept busily engaged in his beloved pursuit until the inevitable came and the galling harness dropped with him. Born and educated in this city, he graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1864, after which he served in the house staff of the New York Hospital. At the completion of his term in that institution he was attacked with pulmonary hemorrhage, which laid the foundation of his life-long invalidism. With a power of endurance and indomitableness of will strangely at variance with his slender frame and bodily weakness, he accepted and filled the onerous positions of hospital surgeon at Bellevue and St. Luke's Hospitals, and also the chair of anatomy in the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
