Blaubaum, Ivan (1891–1949)

Dr Ivan Blaubaum, well-known diabetic specialist, died yesterday at his home in Myoora rd, Toorak, after a short illness.

Dr Blaubaum served as Lieut-Colonel with the 39th Battalion in the First World War.

He was a prominent member of the Naval and Military Club and a member of the Caulfield branch of the Returned Soldiers' League.

Before going to England to study diabetics, Dr Blaubaum practised in Armadale for 20 years. He returned about 10 years ago, and moved to Collins st, where he remained until about three weeks before his death.

He is survived by a widow and one son, Dr Peter Blaubaum.

After a service at 10am today at his home, the funeral will leave for the Springvale Crematorium.

W. G. Apps and Sons Pty Ltd are in charge of the funeral arrangements.
