Obituary (per Findagrave.com):

A Steelton Woman Bursts A Blood
Vessel When Frightened By Dogs
____________________

Mrs. Andrew Yost, a resident of South Second Street, Steelton, died very suddenly on Wednesday under peculiar circumstances. She had been visiting her daughter in the lower end of Steelton, and as she was walking to a car several large dogs sprang at her. Mrs. Yost became greatly frightened and as one of the dogs made at her, fell half fainting on a step.
Neighbors picked her up and she was taken to her daughter's home, where she had several hemorrhages from the nose and mouth and died in about ten minutes. A physician says death was due to the bursting of a blood vessel caused by the violent fright given her by the dogs. Mrs. Yost was a large woman and was about sixty years of age. She will be buried tomorrow from her late home.

Student Pinned Under Car Dies

A 31-year-old University of Delaware graduate student was killed yesterday when his small foreign-make car apparently slipped from a lift while he was working beneath it on the Coast Guard dock at Lewes.

Earl Samuel Fitz of Hanover, Pa., who worked at the university's Marine Biology Laboratory in Lewes, was found pinned beneath his car at 6 p.m. by a fisherman. Fitz was taken to Beebe Hospital where he was pronounced dead. It is believed he was changing a tire when the accident occurred.

Fitz had been working at the laboratory for the past five years. He had a master's degree from Delaware and a bachelor of science degree from Drake University, Des Moines, Ia. He was seeking a doctorate in marine biology. He commuted to the laboratory from an apartment in Newark.

HANOVERIAN DIED IN ODD ACCIDENT

Earl S. Fitz Jr., 31 Graduate Student At University Of Delaware,
Killed By Car Falling From Lift

-------------

A Hanover graduate student at the University of Delaware, Newark, was killed yesterday when his small automobile apparently fell from a lift on top of him on the U.S. Coast Guard dock on the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal, near Lewes, Del.

The victim, Earl Samuel Fitz Jr., 31, was found pinned beneath the vehicle by a passing fisherman and was taken to Beebe Hospital, Lewes, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Physicians said he suffered a crushed chest.

Fitz, whose parents live at 312 Broadway, was studying for his Doctor of Philosophy degree at the university. He was engaged in research work at the university’s marine laboratories and was to have become a member of the university faculty this fall. He visited his home here last weekend.

The Hanover student was deeply interested in marine life and gave numerous lectures on the subject before college students in eastern states.

Fitz graduated from Richelberger Senior High School in the class of 1943. A World War II veteran, he served with the Seebees in Alaska from 1943 to 1945 and later studied for two years at the Presbyterian College, Clinton, S. C.? ? Fitz was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree at Drake University in 1950 and received his master's degree at the University of Delaware last June.

He was a member of the Phi Sigma Pi fraternity at Drake University and belonged to Emmanuel Reformed Church, Broadway.

Surviving are his parents, Earl S. and Virginia W, Lewis Fitz, and three sisters, Mrs. Roy C. Bixby, 21 West Chestnut Street; Caroline Moul Fitz, Valley Stream. N. Y., and Mr. J. R. Lesley, Schuylkill Haven R. D. 2.

Funeral services will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Paul W. Panebaker funeral home, Broadway. His pastor, the Rev. Dr. Nevin E. Smith, will officiate. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home tomorrow evening.

Funeral Saturday For Earl Fitz, Jr., Killed Under Auto

Hanover -- Funeral services for Earl Samuel Fitz, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl S. Fitz, 312 Broadway, who was injured fatally Wednesday when his automobile fell from a lift and crushed his chest, will be held tomorrow at 11 a.m. at the Panebaker Funeral home, 311 Broadway.

Rev. Dr. Nevin E. Smith, pastor of Emmanuel Reformed church, will officiate. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet cemetery.

The accident happened at the Coast Guard dock, Lewes-Rehoboth canal, near Lewes, Del. Mr. Fitz, who served in the Seabees during World War II, was studying for his doctor of philosophy degree at the University of Delaware, Newark, and had planned to become a member of the university faculty this fall.

He was a member of Emmanuel Reformed church and was affiliated with Phi?Sigma Phi (sic) fraternity of Drake University.     
     

Note (Catherine Cook): I believe the fraternity named above is in error - it wasn't founded until 1988 in Indiana; also there is confusion as to what doctorate he was seeking. I tend to believe it was in Marine Biology.

Cause of death: Accidentally crushed when the automobile he was working on fell on him. He was buried in September 1956 at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Hanover, York Co., PA.
