ALBERT B. FERGUSON, JR.
June 10, 1919 - August 20, 2014

Albert B. Ferguson, Jr., passed away the evening of August 20, 2014.

Dr. Ferguson was a resident of Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania and Kingwood, Pennsylvania.

He was born in New York City on June 10, 1919. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1941 and from Harvard Medical School in 1943. After spending three years with the U. S. Marines in the Pacific area, Dr. Ferguson trained in surgery and orthopaedic surgery in Boston's Children's, Peter Bent Brigham, and Massachusetts General Hospitals. In 1953, he was appointed the Silver Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, where he remained until his retirement in 1986.

Dr. Ferguson was honored by the British Orthopaedic Association and the Japanese Orthopaedic Society with honorary fellowships. He served as President of the American Orthopaedic Association, a founding member of the Hip Society, and President of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Dr. Ferguson was recognized for his contributions to orthopaedic surgery by the American Orthopaedic Association in 2006 and by the Pennsylvania Medical Society by their Distinguished Service Award in 2007.

Dr. Ferguson authored numerous articles related to orthopaedic research and many well-known orthopaedic texts relating to children's and adult orthopaedics, metals and engineering in orthopaedic surgery, and the treatment of athletic injuries. The graduates of his training program held professorships in orthopaedic surgery in many medical schools in the United States as well as in England, Japan, Korea and Turkey.

Dr. Ferguson was a member of the Fox Chapel Golf Club. For over 40 years he undertook the development of a tree farm in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.

Dr. Ferguson was married to the late Louise Enequist Ferguson for over 60 years. They had four children: Sanford, who is married to Kelly Westhoff Ferguson, Bruce, who is married to Rose Marie Emanuele Ferguson, Gary, who is married to Frances Calvanese Ferguson, and Laurie, who predeceased him. They had 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Memorial services will be held at Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church at 10:30am on Saturday, August 30, 2014.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Dr. Ferguson's memory to the University of Pittsburgh - Albert Ferguson Orthopaedic Resident Education Fund at the Medical and Health Science Foundation, University of Pittsburgh, 3600 Forbes Avenue, Suite 8084, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
