Apgar Remembrances
S.P. Browning III'54

Norwich, Connecticut

I would like to recall several things about Dr. Virginia Apgar. The first was her dynamism, her forthrightness, and her honesty. The second was her sense of humor and enjoyment of life. The third was the observation that when the patient was not doing well was when Dr. Apgar stopped talking. And, fourth, I think she deeply enjoyed her fire-engine red convertible which was about as sporty a car as we had in that era. It was a privilege to know, even slightly, such a great lady and such a great physician!
