In Memoriam

Editor’s note: Beginning with this issue, the Medical Bulletin is changing the way it handles obituaries for Medical School alumni. In lieu of the slightly longer announcements we have run in the past, we are opting for a simple announcement but with a link to each individual’s full, public obituary notice, when available. We have chosen to provide links to published obituaries because they offer readers the information families have shared to honor their loved ones.
