Nineteen ninety-two has been a strange year for funerals. Not a heart death among them. Six in all. All solid tumor. Two lungs. Two breasts. A colon. And a cervix. Three men, three women—mean age, 55; range, 34 to 70. Two other physicians, a physician's wife, my accountant of 27 years, a much-loved brother-in-law. And Kath. Katherine Swan Ginsburg, 34, MD, MPH. Department of Rheumatology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Instructor in Medicine, Harvard Medical School, first author of an article (1) in this issue of Annals; and my youngest daughter.
Kath had been away from home for 16 years—UCSD, Tulane
