Henry Simpson Greenleaf – Colonel, United States Army

Henry Simpson Greenleaf of Idaho
Appointed from California, Assistant Surgeon, 1 January 1899


This hospital was commanded by First Lieut. H. S. Greenleaf, assistant surgeon, United States Army. Under him were 3 assistants, about 40 members of the hospital corps, and 6 trained female nurses.

The diet kitchen was admirably managed, and everything was done conducive to the welfare of the sick. I do not believe it would be amiss to state that the United States Military Hospital No. 1, in Pekin, was, in point of equipment, the most complete hospital among the allied forces in north China, and it reflected in the most favorable manner upon the Medical Department of the Army. Lieutenant Greenleaf proved himself an efficient and capable officer and a large part of the success of this hospital was due to his untiring energy and ability.
