On Jan. 7, 2021, Dr. Peter L. Eichman, 95, died peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family, and entered into eternal life. The cause of death was heart failure (and not the coronavirus).

Peter was born on Nov. 18, 1925, in Philadelphia, Pa., to Edward Eichman, a physician, and Frances (Liebert) Eichman. He graduated from St. Joseph’s College and, in 1949, from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. In 1950-51, he was a resident at Walter Reed Army Hospital, specializing in the study of hepatitis and, for a time, conducting research in Munich, Germany. In 1952, he trained in neuropsychiatry and internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
