Charles Harrison

(1888-1986). Physician, administrator. Born in Indiana, he studied medicine in the United States, London, and Edinburgh, gaining the M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., and F.R.C.S. degrees. For more than 30 years he was medical director of the Sydney Sanitarium and Hospital (now Sydney Adventist Hospital). Not only was he a highly skilled surgeon and physician; he was also loved and respected by staff and patients. He was greatly appreciated as a teacher and lecturer. When he returned to the United States, he became professor of anatomy at Loma Linda University. The Charles Harrison Memorial Home at Cooranbong, Australia, is a tribute to his contribution to Adventism in the South Pacific.
