Globe obit: Former BU med school dean Ephraim Friedman

From the Globe:

To administrator, professor, ophthalmologist, surgeon, and researcher in the field of age-related macular degeneration, he added challenging pursuits outside work. An avid outdoorsman, he hiked the Sierra mountains in the West and carved a vacation home out of the Maine woods. An accomplished sculptor, he shaped clay into figures of delicate beauty.

Dr. Friedman, who also formerly served as president of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, died Saturday  at his home in Beverly Farms, more than six years after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumor. He was 81.

“He was really a renaissance man,’’ said Dr. Joan W. Miller,  chief of ophthalmology at Mass. Eye and Ear and chairwoman of the ophthalmology department at Harvard Medical School.
