Because of erroneous information given The Washington Post, an obituary on Julius K Wolf in yesterday's editions stated his birthplace incorrectly Mr. Wolfe was born in Vienna, Austria.
Julius K. Wolf, 65, a retired attorney with the Veterans Administration, died Thursday at Holy Cross Hospital following surgery.
He had retired about two years ago from the general counsel's offices of the VA headquarters here.
Born in Poland, Mr. Wolf grew up in Vienna, Austria, where he earned a law degree. He fled from Austria after the Nazis took over in 1938.
He made his way to North Africa, where he served with the French Foreign Legion until coming to the United States in the early part of 1942.
Immediately after arriving in this country, Mr. Wolf enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was sent back to Europe as a combat infantry sergeant and was severely wounded in action in Germany.
Following his military service, Mr. Wolf joined the New York regional office of the VA. He earned a second law degree and was admitted to the New York Bar.
He served in the VA's chief attorney office in New York until coming to the Washington headquarters in 1967.
He is survived by his wife, Margery Wolf, of the home in Potomac; a son, Michael, of Boston; a stepson, Daniel Eli Comarovschi, of Richmond, Va.; a sister, Stella M. Odinger, of London, England, and one grandchild.
