In Memoriam: Martin C. McHenry, MD, MS, FIDSA (1932-2013)
Martin C. McHenry, MD, FIDSA, was a passionate practitioner of infectious diseases who mentored many IDSA leaders during his long career as an infectious diseases and internal medicine practitioner. His career was dedicated to patient care, education, and scholarship. 
Dr. McHenry graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and subsequently trained in infectious diseases at the Mayo Clinic. After three years as a staff physician in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Dr. McHenry joined the staff of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and served for 20 years there as the first chair of the Department of Infectious Diseases. 
Dr. McHenry was known for his extensive clinical experience and encyclopedic knowledge of medical literature and his empathic and thorough bedside manner.  His warm personality permeated his interactions with patients, colleagues, trainees, family, and friends. In 2000, Dr. McHenry was recognized with the IDSA Clinician Award.
Dr. McHenry was a fellow of IDSA and was active in many professional societies. He was a well-recognized authority in the field of bacterial infections and general clinical infectious disease. His seminal study of vertebral osteomyelitis was the product of many years of research and was influential in the development of IDSA’s upcoming vertebral osteomyelitis guidelines. 
Dr. McHenry is survived by his wife, Patricia; children Michael, Christopher, Timothy, Jeffrey, Paul, Kevin, William, Monica, Martin C. Jr., and the late Mary Ann; fifteen grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
