The widow of Congressman John E. Fogarty, Luise Rohland Fogarty, has died at the age of 96. After the Congressman’s death in 1967, she worked to realize her husband’s goal of establishing a center for international health at NIH.

The John E. Fogarty International Center began operation in 1968, in memory of the Congressman and his long support for health research, as well as his interest in promoting world peace through health. The Congressman and his wife are survived by their daughter, Mary Fogarty McAndrew, of Providence, R.I., shown here with her parents.
