Biographical/Historical Notes
From Anne B. Wagner:
"Brief Biography of Robert Hancock Goodwin, M.D.
Robert Hancock Goodwin was born 14 March 1903 in East Liverpool, Ohio, son of Charles Fawcett Goodwin and Anne Elizabeth (Hancock) Goodwin. He graduated with honors from Princeton University in 1925, and earned his Doctor of Medicine from Harvard Medical School in 1929. Internship and residency in Boston hospitals filled the next three years. He became a staff member and then medical officer in charge of hospital at Grenfell Mission in Newfoundland, serving there from June 1932-August 1934. After acting in loco tenens for a physician in Assonet, MA, he established a private medical practice in New Bedford, Massachusetts, specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and joined the staff as a surgeon at St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford, where he eventually became Chief of Staff. In 1938 in married Augusta (Bradford) Hollis, daughter of Harry Prince Bradford and Maria Louise (Cumings) Bradford. She had three children from her former marriage and together they had two children. She was born 11 May 1904 in Newton, Massachusetts, and died 4 February 1958 in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts. On 20 April 1961, he married Doris Ann (Widmayer) Cummings in Manchester, Michigan, and they had one child. Doris died 12 April 1995. In mid-1980s Bob was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig's Disease. He succumbed to the affliction 13 June 1988.

During WWII he joined the U.S. Navy and subsequently served in the then secret Sino-American Cooperative Organization (SACO) under the command of Captain Milton Miles and General Dai Li in an American effort to support Chinese Nationalists under Chiang Kai-shek against the Japanese and Communists. SACO men and their Chinese counterparts worked behind Japanese lines to report weather conditions; to monitor Japanese troop movements; and to befriend local inhabitants.

Bob was active in civic and social activities, especially Rotary International and YMCA, and medical societies, willingly accepting leadership roles. A deeply religious man, one of high moral character, he was a Deacon and then Moderator of Pandanaram Congregation Church. He was an adventurer and inveterate traveler, always testing himself, climbing mountains, ocean racing, serving as mate aboard ships. He loved the sea and he loved sailing, often joining his friends Irving and Electra "Exy" Johnson aboard their various ships called "Yankee". In the prime of his practice he reluctantly exchanged a sailboat for a "stinkpot" to save time when he had free time. He was adored by his patients."

Robert H. Goodwin was a member of the Harvard Travelers Club.
