Paul A Chandler, MD, graduated from Hastings College, Harvard Medical School and did residency at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI), a teaching hospital of the Harvard Medical School. Following residency, Dr. Chandler went into practice in Nebraska with Eugene C. Foote, M.D., head of the Foote Clinic.
Dr. Chandler was invited back to MEEI by George Derby, M.D., and established the Glaucoma Service there in the 1940s. The Paul A. Chandler Visiting Professorship at MEEI was created by David Cogan, M.D., Chief of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Chandler retired from active practice in 1984 at the age of 82. In 1986, Harvard Medical School established the Paul A. Chandler Professorship of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Chandler's favorite quote:
W Morton Grant, MD, graduated from Harvard Medical School. He had a lifelong interest in organic chemistry which is reflected in his major work "Toxicology of the Eye." He began his career in the Howe Laboratory at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) in 1943, working with David Cogan, M.D. on the effects of mustard gas on the eye. Although his career at the Howe Lab never involved specific ophthalmology or glaucoma training, he became a world leader in both. He and Paul Chandler held weekly coffee seminars to discuss glaucoma, and an invitation to attend was a high point in an ophthalmology resident's education. Dr. Grant had a reserved, almost ascetic and self-sacrificing manner, with a wonderful, dry sense of humor.
Dr. Grant served as the first director of the Glaucoma Consultation Service at MEEI . His professional career was multifaceted.
Four noteworthy aspects of Grant's career:
|Chandler and Grant's textbook was originally published in 1965, and was based on a series of lectures they had given. It has gone through four revisions and is still in print. The current publication is from April 2013|
|Grant's work with toxicology remains unparalleled in ophthalmology. It has gone through four editions, the most recent with co-author Joel Schumann.|
