Hornick Endowed Lecture Series

Dr. Newton Hornick was a private practice Pittsburgh radiologist from 1947 until his retirement in 1980. Upon his death, his two sons, Robert and Joe, created an endowed fund in honor both of their parents, Newton and Julia (a Pittsburgh nurse). This fund sustains an annual lectureship, with an emphasis on governmental and socioeconomic impact on radiology practice and has continued since its inception in 1986.

Dr. Hornick was a graduate of Catawaba College and Duke University School of Medicine.
 For many years he served as the head of radiology at Suburban General Hospital. He was a past president of the Pittsburgh Roentgen Society and the Pennsylvania Radiological Society (PRS). He was a fellow of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and served on its Board of Chancellors. He held various administrative roles in the ACR including vice president (1978-79), secretary and treasurer. He was a leader in the radiology community who foresaw the need for radiologists to commit themselves to organized medicine and socioeconomic issues confronting radiology practice.
