Dr. Oskar Fischel, noted art historian and a refugee from Germany, died here today at the age of 69. He came here recently with the aid of leading English museum officials. Dr. Fischel was dismissed from the University of Berlin in 1933, when the Nazi regime took power, but was reinstated upon the insistence of students and prominent scholars. He was finally dismissed in 1935. Dr. Fischel was the author of many works on the theatrical arts and on the painter Rafael.
