Walter E. Berman, MD: 1923-2017

Walter E. Berman, MD, one of the founding members of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, died on July 24. He was 94.

Berman, an otolaryngologist, began his career in 1954 at Cedars of Lebanon and Mount Sinai hospitals before their merger, and later continued to practice at Cedars-Sinai for decades. He also was one of the five founding members of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

During World War II, Berman served in the U.S. Army Air Corps as a flight surgeon and went on to complete his training in ear, nose and throat and plastic surgery at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York City.

Berman is survived by his two children, Andrew Berman and Ellen Flashman, their spouses, Erin Berman and Tom Flashman, and four grandchildren, Sophia, Alexsa, Jason and Allison.

Donations in his memory may be made to the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
