LIVED AND DIED IN BED. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 2 June 1906

LIVED AND DIED IN BED. Professor Oedmann, a Swedish theolo-. gian, whose death is announced from Stockholm, was an eccentric of a pecu liar type. Alter an illness which com pelled him once to keep to his bed lor a time,-hie conceived a liking, for lying abed, a*nd did all his >vork and took his meals snugly ensconced in the blankets, Tlie latter part o£ his lire, indeed, was spent entirely in bed. The professor had an unreasonable dread of catching cold, and . would never allow his bed room window to be opened. Written ex ercises by students were ilrst warmed on a stove ; before he would touch them. His death was caused by a visit from an old farmer who wished to consult him, and by some mistake entered ■ the bed room with clothes plentifully besprinkled with snow. Herr Oedmann angrily or dered him away, but •'the visitor, who. was deaf,; drew nearer to his bedside. This excited the warmth-loving profes sor so much that he broke a blood ves-' sel and" died. .
