Herbert Miller Swartz ’50

Published in July 7, 1999, issue

Herb Swartz died Jan. 25, 1999, of heart failure at Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley, Calif. He was 69, and his health had been compromised by arthritis.

Herb prepared at Oakwood H.S. in Dayton, Ohio. At Princeton, he majored in mathematics, joined Court Club, and was manager of the Student Tennis Agency.

After earning an MD from Columbia in 1954, he performed his residency in internal medicine at Brooklyn Hospital and then at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco. He was staff internist at several hospitals in California before he went into private practice in 1965. He moved into child psychiatry in 1970 with the necessary residency at Napa State Hospital and as a fellow in child psychiatry at the Langley Porter Institute in San Francisco.

His long history of service in community mental health included working as a psychiatrist in the Juvenile Court System as well as in the Contra Costa County Mental Health Center. Herb's practice reached a large number of people, and he was known as a physician highly dedicated to his work.

He is survived by his wife, Thea, son David, and daughters Elisa Swartz-Larson and April S. Daly, to all of whom the class extends its deepest sympathies.
