LYLE M. SELLERS, MD
His particular interests were in otology, and his hobbies included the collecting
of rare books and early editions of medical and religious writings. His scholarly
interests and mastery of Latin led him to the collaborative translation with Prof
Barry Anson of Scarpa's "Anatomical Observations on the Round Window" which
was published in the Archives of Otolaryngology in 1962.
Modest and reserved, loving good food, art, and fine music, an intense sense of
obligation to help those less fortunate, Lyle Sellers leaves an irreplaceable void in
the ranks of scientific medicine and in the thoughts of his many devoted friends and
