BIOGRAPHY - Thomas H. Weller:
Ernest lived close to nature in Wakefield.
As a boy on a small farm, with many chores and few playmates, he prepared, with parental encouragement, collections of beetles, dragonflies, and arrowheads. Throughout his years in college and medical school, he trapped muskrat, fox, mink, skunk, and weasel to provide funds for educational expenses. This activity also provided a focus for a maturing intellectual curiosity that was to determine his future career. In 1899, he spent the spring recess of his second year at Harvard Medical School trapping.
He graduated from Brown & Harvard in 1902 with a M. D. His interest in cancer research was paramount during 1905-1916 when he was director of the Harvard Cancer Commission. Tyzzer's contributions to research on cancer were recognized by his election to the presidency of the American Association for Cancer Research in 1913 and by receipt of the Bronze Medal of the American Cancer Society in 1952.
"He was a large, kindly, who spoke slowly, softly simply, and, succinctly."
