Whereas, the members of the General Assembly are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Herbert Keyserling of Beaufort on Monday, June 19, 2000; and

Whereas, Dr. Keyserling was the son of the late William Keyserling and Jennie Hyman Keyserling. He graduated from the College of Charleston and then the Medical University of South Carolina in 1940; and

Whereas, Dr. Keyserling was the beloved husband of our former colleague, Harriet Keyserling and the father of another colleague, Billy Keyserling of Beaufort. He is survived by a second son, Paul also of Beaufort, and two daughters, Judy Keyserling of Washington, D.C., and Beth Kramer of Charleston, and two grandchildren; and

Whereas, Dr. Keyserling was a veteran of World War II and was awarded the Silver Star. He served in the Naval Medical Corps, as well as the 1st Medical Battalion of the lst Marine Division; and

Whereas, he practiced medicine in the Lowcountry for over fifty years and was well known as Beaufort County's country doctor. He championed health care for the poor and worked diligently to extend health care to low income families in Beaufort and Jasper counties. He delivered over three thousand babies and was a family doctor in the truest sense of the phrase as he knew and treated the cousins, aunts, and other members of a patient's extended family; and

Whereas, he was the former chief of staff at Beaufort Memorial Hospital and secretary of the Lowcountry Medical Association. He served on the Penn Center board and was a member of the TB Association, the Advisory Group to the Lowcountry Council on Health, and the Beaufort Rotary Club; and

Whereas, Dr. Keyserling will be sorely missed by his family and his community. He will be forever remembered for his dedication, service, and commitment to his patients and to the community. As one of his colleagues said in his honor, "the good news is Dr. Keyserling will live forever in what he has done medically for this community"; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly want Dr. Keyserling's family and many friends to know that they all are uppermost in the members' thoughts and have their deepest sympathy. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly express their profound sorrow upon the death of Herbert Keyserling of Beaufort and extend deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to our dear colleague and Dr. Keyserling's widow, the Honorable Harriet Keyserling.
