  • Description

    Spain and the whole world grieves the passing away of Dr. Gregorio Maranon.

    These shots evoke his figure ... we see him here in his study where he passed many hours of hard work and meditation.

    This great scientist, extraordinary writer and learned historian went some time for arrest to his "oigarral" (country house) in Toledo, to enjoy the company of his grand-children and great-grandchildren. In this same property, Tirso de Molina wrote some of his famous works, and Becquer, the romantic post, composed some of his best stanzas late in the party century.

    Dr. Maranon spent hero his week-ends, contemplating the imperial city fraught of historical reminiscences about which he wrote some of his best works.

    His professional academic life was full of many very important works... recalled in these scenes..
    Thousands join in the funeral cortege and render the last tribute of admiration and affection to the great man who was Dr. Maranon. His son, Don Gregorio Maranon Moya, and his brother Don Javier Maranon, with several Cabinet Ministers and other high officials preside the cortege.. In the Faculty of Medicine, his pupils carry their Professor's remains to the chapel installed in the porch of the building.. In front of the Provincial Hospital - where Dr. Maranon did so much for the welfare of mankind allaying the sufferings of many - a responsory is said for the soul of this prominent Spaniard and famous scientist and humanist.
