A memorial service for Dr. S. Bernard Hughes Jr., a Baltimore native who practiced osteopathic medicine in New York City and worked in research institutions, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Sharp Street Memorial United Methodist Church, Dolphin and Etting streets.
Dr. Hughes, who was 80, died of heart disease March 13 at his home in Philadelphia.
He moved to Philadelphia about four years ago after retiring as a data analyst for the Manpower and Career Development in New York.
He had worked in research programs at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and at Harvard University and Children's Hospital in Boston.
He graduated from Douglass High School and Lincoln University, where he was quarterback on the football team, a member of the track team and captain of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity basketball team.
A chemistry major, he worked for the New York City government after his graduation and then attended the Massachusetts BTC College of Medicine and Surgery, earning a doctor of osteopathy degree in 1943. He also studied electron microscopy at the University of Iowa.
His first wife, the former Dr. Vivian Andrews, died.
He is survived by his second wife, the former Kathryn Coleman of Philadelphia; a sister, Ann McAllister-Hughes; a brother, Dr. Donald Hughes; and his stepmother, Blanche Hughes, all of Baltimore.
Bishop Edward G. Carroll, retired United Methodist Bishop of Boston and a Baltimore resident, will conduct the services.
