H. William Primakoff

October 16, 1990

Dr. H. William Primakoff, who practiced internal medicine for about 60 years, died Sept. 13 at his home in the Thirty-Nine Hundred Apartments after a long illness. He was 87.

A memorial service for Dr. Primakoff will be held at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the Memorial Auditorium of Union Memorial Hospital, 201 E. University Parkway.

He was honored as a member of Union Memorial Hospital's distinguishing service staff about a year ago, after his retirement from practice. A member of the staff since 1932, when he served as chief resident, he also practiced at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and taught interns and residents at both hospitals.

Dr. Primakoff was a fellow of the American College of Physicians.

A native of Durham, N.C., he was a 1924 graduate of Duke University, where he earned a master's degree a year later. He received his medical degree in 1928 from George Washington University, and he moved to Baltimore after serving an internship at the Watts Hospital in Durham.

He was a member of the Johns Hopkins Club and the Suburban Club of Baltimore County.

His survivors include a niece, Marjorie Schaeffer of North Carolina.
