Charles Sumner Neer II 1917-2011

Charles Sumner Neer II was born in 1917 in Oklahoma into a medical family. Both his father and his grandfather were physicians. After graduating from Dartmouth College, he received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where he also did his internship in general surgery. He started his residency on the Fracture Service of the Presbyterian Hospital, but his residency was interrupted as he proudly served as a Captain in the United States Army during World War II, first in Europe under General George Patton and then in Asia. He returned to finish his training on the Fracture Service and at the New York Orthopaedic Hospital and became an attending. He eventually became Chief of both the Fracture Service and then the Adult Reconstructive Service at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center as well as Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Columbia University.
