The New York Tribune newspaper dated February 15, 1896 states that 'The funeral of Max Eglau, who was murdered in the deaf and Dumb Institute, took place at his home in St Mark's Place'.
Among the visitors to the Eglau home were several public school principals in whose schools Professor Eglau had been engaged. They all spoke of him as a kind hearted old man, against whom no one could say an unkind word.
Max Eglau was born 1825 in Baden, Germany and was survived by his wife, a daughter and a son-in-law, John B Zink.
