Dr. Ernest Granville Crabtree (1883-1947) was a graduate of Harvard Medical School, Chief of the Urological Department at Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, and President-elect of the American Urological Association at the time of his death. Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Arctic explorer and Chief of Naval Operations for the U.S. Navy during World War II, wrote of Dr. Crabtree: "In my long and active career I have never met a man I admired more than I did Granville Crabtree . . . Crabtree's was one of the finest and most beautiful characters that one could think of in life or literature" (Letter to Mrs. Granville Crabtree, June 5, 1947).
