In Remembrance: Harold C. Spear ’45 Died on August 29 2013

Cardiothoracic surgeon Harold C. Spear died August 29, 2013, one month shy of his 90th birthday. He had been a pioneer in thoracic surgery, doing experimental work during the early days of heart/lung machines, heart transplants, and pacemakers—while maintaining a busy surgical practice in the Miami, Florida, area, which at one time included practicing at as many as ten hospitals.
