He also taught in medical ethics and served as chair of the Committee on General Pathology for the Royal College.” A former neighbour recalled: “When we were kids and our parents were going away, my mother would take care to point to the list of contacts she’d recorded, in case of emergency. Then she’d turn to us and say, ‘But, if you’re in trouble, real trouble, call Harry.’ ”
