Dr. H. Zheutlin, 80, Baltimore dermatologist


Dr. Harold E. C. Zheutlin, a dermatologist with offices in Baltimore and Severna Park, died of cancer Monday at home in Owings Mills. He was 80.

Beginning in 1950, Dr. Zheutlin practiced dermatology in Baltimore, first on Calvert Street downtown and since 1960 on Cold Spring Lane near Loyola College. He also had a practice in Anne Arundel County, first in Annapolis then in Severna Park.

He stopped practicing in February because of his illness.

"He was a man of dignity and principle, and he helped shape those around him into this mold," said Dr. Jack Handelsman, a longtime friend and colleague who shared office space with Dr. Zheutlin on Calvert Street. "He will be sorely missed."

Dr. Zheutlin served on the staffs of Johns Hopkins, Sinai and Anne Arundel County hospitals and was an assistant professor at Hopkins' medical school.

As an undergraduate, he joined Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha and was a member of the basketball and track teams.

Dr. Zheutlin joined the Army in 1943 and served as a member of Hopkins' 118th General Hospital unit in Sydney, Australia. He was discharged as a major in 1946.

He did post-graduate work at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University until 1948, when he returned to Hopkins as a full-time instructor.

He belonged to many professional organizations, including the American Medical Association, the Maryland Dermatologic Society, the Atlantic Dermatologic Society, the Southern Medical Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland.

Dr. Zheutlin was a member of the Suburban Club in Pikesville and enjoyed gardening, reading, traveling and sports, particularly tennis.

Services are scheduled for 4 p.m. today at Sol Levinson & Bros. Inc., 8900 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.
