Globe: Dr. George Richardson, MGH surgeon, dies @89

Dr. Richardson, who also conducted research into gynecologic cancers and in later years wrote so much verse that at times he might have preferred the title poet, died of cancer July 1  in his Nahant home. He was 89.

Looking beyond surgery to see a patient as more than just a diagnosis on a clipboard was second nature for Dr. Richardson, who insisted that his own life transcend vocation.
