Dr. E. D. Weinberg, surgeon, dies

January 03, 1991

Dr. E. David Weinberg, a retired orthopedic surgeon, died yesterday of heart failure at Roland Park Place, where he had lived for about three years.

Dr. Weinberg, who was 95, had lived in Pikesville for more than 40 years.

He was in private practice from 1927 until his retirement in 1975 and was chief of staff from 1958 until 1965 at what is now the Harbor Hospital Center. He was chief of orthopedic surgery at the hospital and a member of its board until about four months ago.

He was an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins University medical school and was on the staffs of other hospitals, including Sinai and Children's and the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

He also conducted orthopedic surgery clinics in Cumberland and in Southern Maryland.

Dr. Weinberg wrote many professional papers and was curator for the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. He was a member of many national and international professional groups.

The native of Lonaconing was a 1918 graduate of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa., which awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1954.

After completing his studies at the Johns Hopkins medical school, he was an intern and resident at the Johns Hopkins Hospital until 1926 when he studied bone pathology in England and Austria.

In that year he married Edith Rothschild, who died in 1979.

Fond of music, reading, travel and the study of archaeology, Dr. Weinberg collected early American furniture.

He is survived by two daughters, Marjorie Ottenheimer of Pikesville and Alice W. Herrmann of Avon, Conn.; a brother, Dr. J. Arthur Weinberg of Baltimore; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Private services were planned.
