The Daily Goodbye

Patricia Sullivan

Good morning, everyone.

We have a trio of obits about medical researchers: Leon Eisenberg, a pioneer in autism studies; Eloise Giblett, whose work on blood made transfusions safer; and John J. Wild, who invented a way to find tumors using ultrasound.

You have to like a guy who kept old photos and memorabilia of a brewery for years. Richard Bosley donated to the Miller Brewing Co. nearly 15,000 negatives and 5,000 prints taken between 1954 and 1981.

Helga Gisela Buss had a rather exciting start in life: Born into a privileged family in East Prussia, she, her mother and six sisters, was captured by the Russians during the Second World War, and held in a Russian prison camp for the duration. She immigrated to Canada and became a highly informed citizen, eschewing activism until a half-way house was planned next door to an elementary school.

Forewarned: here's an awfully sad obit about Donna M. Cooper's struggle with alcoholism throughout her adult life.
