Brandon Hart died Oct. 24, 2006, from Pick’s disease.
In our 2004 book, Lives of ’54, his wife, Katrina, wrote a lovely report of his life, saying that at that time Brandon was no longer able to communicate or participate in activities of daily living. Regrettably, patients with this type of dementia often are left unable to care for themselves.
Brandon was born in Princeton and graduated from the South Kent (Conn.) School. He was a psychology major and a member of Tower Club and varsity crew. It is noteworthy that his senior thesis topic at Princeton was “Electroencephalography and Its Uses in the Measurement of Brain Ailments.”
He had a productive medical career as a solo practitioner in ophthalmology in Beverly, Mass., until his retirement seven years ago.
The class offers its sympathy to Katrina and Brandon’s daughters, Alexandra and Eliza. Expressions of sympathy may be made in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 8th Ave., New York, NY 10001.
