J. Herbert Waite
"The J. Herbert Waite you found is my
grandfather and I was certainly named after him. He went onto get his MD at
Harvard, did a couple of years in Australia and Papua-New Guinea studying
parasites with Rockefeller Foundation funding, and then settled into a very
illustrious career as a professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. I
did not know about his stint at Indiana-PA. Thanks very much!" The
