Dr. Robert M. Barnhart, 55, a radiologist at the Harbor Hospital Center and the Liberty Medical Center, died Monday after collapsing at his summer home on Wiltshire Lane in Severna Park.

A memorial service will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Towson Presbyterian Church, Chesapeake and Highland avenues.

Dr. Barnhart lived on Templeton Road in Towson. As a partner in Harbor Radiologists for more than 20 years, he was the senior attending physician in the imaging departments of both hospitals.

A native of Washington, he was a graduate of the University of Virginia and the George Washington University Medical School.

He served an internship and surgical residency at Duke University Hospital and then served as a captain in the Air Force in Germany from 1962 until 1965.

Then he came to Baltimore and took a residency in radiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital before becoming associated with the group of radiologists.

He was a member of the Radiology Society of North America, the American College of Radiology, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, the Maryland Radiological Society, the American MedicalAssociation and the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland.

Survivors include his wife, the former Ellen Devol; two sons, Robert Miller Barnhart Jr. of Parkville and Donald Lee Barnhart of Columbia; a daughter, Laura Lynn Barnhart Alberg of Washington; his mother, Pearl Barnhart of Prince Frederick; and a sister, Virginia M. Ireland of Fort Myers, Fla.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the Towson Presbyterian Church, Mar-Va Marriage Encounter, in care of the church, or to the Union Memorial Hospital Hospice Program.
