We are saddened to report the passing of
Hueston C. King "Hugh", MD, of Venice, Florida, passed away at home
on November 29, 2013. Hugh attended Princeton
University and Columbia Medical School. After
serving in the U.S. Army and acting as team doctor
for West Point Military Academy, Hugh moved his
family to Miami, Florida, determined never to shovel
snow again. Hugh enjoyed a twenty year medical
practice in Miami. He and his wife moved to
Venice in 1982, where Hugh continued a fulfilling
ENT/Allergy practice until he retired. In
addition to being a Fellow of the Triological
Society, Hugh was a past president of the American
Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy and taught multiple
courses around the world. Hugh was also a much
respected medical author on the practice of allergy,
having his books translated into several languages.

Robert J. Toohill, MD FACS Dr. Toohill's obituary can be found
here. (The following was prepared by Bruce H.
Campbell, MD) Bob
born on June 7, 1935 in Wapella, Illinois. He attended St. Bede Junior
College and St. Ambrose College before graduation from Marquette
University School of Medicine in 1960. He completed his otolaryngology
residency at the University of Illinois where he worked with mentors
Francis Lederer, Paul Hollinger, Richard Buckingham, and Burton Soboroff.
He served in the US Navy and was stationed in Chelsea, Massachusetts
where he had the opportunity to work with William Montgomery, MD and M.
Stuart Strong, MD. He returned to Milwaukee where he opened a solo
practice on Oklahoma Avenue working primarily at St. Luke's Hospital.
He staffed the residents at the Milwaukee County Hospital and the Wood
VA Hospital finally moving to a full-time position at MCW in 1978. He
became Division Chief of Otolaryngology in the Department of Surgery in
1986. He stepped down as Division Chief in 1998 but continued on,
pursuing his interests in rhinology and reflux. Despite attempting to
retire in 2000, he remained a welcome and active participant in the
Department of Otolaryngology until his recent illness. Bob was a role
model, encouraging each of us to be our best and to always keep our
patients' best interests foremost. Clinically, he left his mark by
building a thriving department, training more than 100 otolaryngology
residents, collaborating on ground-breaking research, providing
outstanding patient care, volunteering in the community, and interacting
with otolaryngologists around the world. On a personal level, he was
steadfastly honest. He questioned everything. He worked and played hard.
He made the world a better place.

Rhinological and Otological Society, Inc., aka The Triological
Society, was founded in 1895 in New York, New York.
In the more than 100 years since its founding, the
Triological Society has attracted the best and brightest in
academic and clinical otolaryngology.
Membership in the Triological Society brings the
distinction of being elected to the most prestigious society in
otolaryngology. Active Fellowship is achieved
by presenting a thesis in the field of otolaryngology considered
acceptable to a panel of peers.
For those entering the field of otolaryngology, the Society
provides role models. For those who are committed to research and related scholarly
activity, the Society offers fellowship with like-minded peers who
share common values, interests, and concerns.
Society disseminates scientific information by presenting
the latest basic science and clinical information at scientific meetings and
through publication of its scientific journal, The
Laryngoscope. The Society promotes research
into the causes of and treatments for otolaryngic diseases by
attracting promising physicians to scholarly otolaryngology
research and supporting their development, providing financial
support for the research efforts of young scientists, and promoting
the highest standards in the field of otolaryngology-head and
