Earle B. Weiss, M.D. ’61, has published a book of his poetry and artwork titled Faded Shadows: Some Thoughts at the End of a Journey (Miles Press, Worcester MA, 2013). “I began writing many years ago during the summer days when spare time was rare for me,” writes Dr. Weiss. “Now and then subjects beyond my seaside loves began to find some ink. …My daughter, Ilana, and wife, Vicky, encouraged me to collate the maelstrom.” The book includes original photographs and line drawings by Dr. Weiss as well as copies he made of oil paintings and watercolors. Several of the poems previously appeared in collections published by the International Library of Poetry and the National Library of Poetry. Now retired from a long and distinguished career in pulmonary medicine, Dr. Weiss is a past president of the Massachusetts Thoracic Society and received its Chadwick Medal for “meritorious contributions to the study and treatment of tuberculosis and other thoracic diseases.” He established a student research fellowship at Einstein and has made a planned gift to support global health programs at the College of Medicine.
