    Dr. John Fisher
    1925-2009

    Dr. John Fisher, one of ACBL's top players in the Sixties and Seventies, died in Dallas Aug. 14 of cancer. He was 84.

    Fisher won eight North American championships in a long bridge career that included the McKenney Trophy in 1972 for
    winning the most masterpoints that year. That competition is now known as the Barry Crane Top 500. Crane and Fisher
    won the national Open Pairs at the Spring NABC in 1970, 1971 and 1972 and again in 1974. He also won the Vanderbilt
    Team, the Grand National Team, the Master Mixed Team, and a second in the World Open Pairs.

    Besides bridge, Dr Fisher had many other interests, including a love of opera. He was a member of the Dallas Historical
    Society, the Dallas Bach Society and the Dallas Wagner Society

    A graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in 1948, he set up a medical practice in Dallas in 1954
    after serving in the U.S. Air Force. Fisher started his own practice in 1966 and retired in 1993.
