BMC Trauma Chief Drowns in Boating Accident | BU Today
Erwin F. Hirsch, a much-respected and well-loved physician who served as chief of trauma surgery at the Boston Medical Center for 25 years, died yesterday afternoon after his dinghy capsized in the harbor off Rockport, Maine. The 72-year-old surgeon was legendary for his efforts to provide the highest quality care to all patients, regardless of their finances or personal histories, and for his seemingly inexhaustible energy and good will.

I didn’t know him, but it sounds like I would have enjoyed working with him.
