Harold Barber Fain, M.D., was born June 23, 1910 in Stamford, Texas to Mary Barber and Douglas Wythe Fain. He was the second of three children when the family moved to Weatherford, Texas, settling on a dairy farm west of town in the Greenwood community. There the family grew from three to nine children.

Harold graduated from Weatherford High School with honors and Weatherford Junior College. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin and was employed for several years by the Railroad Commission. Following service in World War II, and after further undergraduate work at the University of Texas, he entered the University of Texas School of Medicine at Galveston where he earned his M.D. degree in July, 1958. He did postgraduate training at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in Ft. Worth, Texas. He later transferred to the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, where he practiced as a forensic psychiatrist until his retirement.

Harold died in Dallas, Texas on July 14, 1978 and was buried in the Greenwood Community Cemetery in Greenwood, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mary Barber Fain and Douglas Wythe Fain of Weatherford, Texas. His eight siblings, now all deceased, were brothers John Wythe Fain, J.D. of Dallas, Douglas Wilson Fain of Dallas, and Robert Henry Fain, M.D. of Houston, and sisters Mayna Fain Bode of Austin, Ruth Fain Greer of Longmont, Colorado, Ann Fain Rea of Weatherford, Betty Fain Wright of Amarillo, and Norma Fain Braly of Houston.
