Henry Titus Koenig
Birth: 1891
Death: May 20, 1934

Scientist. He gained world acclaim for his research with radium. In 1922 he and 20 other scientists went to Belgium to work with Madame Marie Curie. Not long after that research, many of the scientists began dying from malignancies caused by their exposure to radium. Realizing his fate, he nevertheless continued his research under a self-imposed death sentence. He was the last of the scientists to die. Madame Curie died less that two months later. He was hailed as "a martyr to radium research" and the man who put radium research on its feet.
