Before his death August made several applications to the Insulin Foundation for continued support for his laboratory. He estimated that the laboratory would have to operate until 1952 to make it possible for WeisFogh to complete the locust research. Not knowing that Krogh was dying, Hagedorn hesitated because of the losses suffered by the Insulin Laboratory during the war. By the end of March 1949, however, Hagedorn could assure Krogh that the Insulin Foundation had enough money and that support for Krogh’s laboratory could continue. August was greatly relieved. The research was continued and brought to completion by Weis-Fogh and Martin Jensen.
