1971 - Hans Christian Hagedorn dies

In his last years, Hagedorn has Parkinson’s disease and is severely ill. By 1958, he is already using a signature stamp to sign his name because his hands shake so much. He gradually relinquishes his posts: in 1958 as Senior Hospital Physician, in 1963 as the Managing Director of Nordisk Insulinlaboratorium and in 1969 as Chair of the Board. He remains on the Board of the Nordisk Insulin Foundation until his death. In his final years, he is an inpatient at Steno Memorial Hospital.
