Herbert Neisser, M.D.

Herbert Heinrich Neisser

d. 01 Jan 1905 - age 94



A friend just sent me a Daily Press clipping about the money that Dr. Herbert Neisser donated to the Hilton Library. I did not know he died on New Year's Day. I looked at the newsletters from then, but didn't see him mentioned. Fortunately for me, Dr. Neisser "fixed" my mother, then I was conceived. He delivered me and treated me through two hospital stays for pneumonia, many strep throats until the tonsils were removed, and various ailments until high school. And I was surprised to learn he was only two years older than my mother.......she turned 92 on Apr 12th! I know there are LOTs of alumni out there with a Dr. Neisser experience. Please share.

I'm sorry I didn't pick up on Dr. Neisser. My own physician was Nowell D. Nelms, M.D. in Southampton Shopping Center. He had been an Army buddy of my father's during the war, where he earned the nickname of "Stinky" Nelms for his ability to spot slackers.

By the way, my #1 daughter-in-law was a "miracle" baby just like you, Gloria, born after her mama's tubes had been tied. She just really, really wanted to be born - and I suppose you did, too!
