M. Weiss demonstrated his profound love and
respect for medicine through his excellent skills as
a neurosurgeon, his compassion for his patients and
his never-ending pursuit of excellence. Following his
death in 1985, the Foundation for Vassar Brothers
Medical Center, with the assistance of Dr. Weiss’s
widow, Esther, and friends throughout the community,
created an annual lecture fund in his memory. We are
pleased to remember him on this day.
