Lieutenant Colonel Mortimer Sanderson, head of the dental corps in the 34th Division, died Tuesday night as a result of blood poisoning, which originated in an abscess in one ear. He was 32 years of age and recently promoted from Lieutenant.

Lieutenant Colonel Sanderson is survived by his wife and three children. His father is coming from Pennsylvania, where the body will probably be shipped. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Wednesday, July 31, 1918
