Shields – A Profound Loss to Our Profession

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Dr. Glen O. Brindley on August 1. Glen was a resident at Duke Eye Center in the late 1970s. He did a fellowship in oculoplastics and then returned to his home town of Temple, Texas, where he joined the faculty of the Scott White Clinic, which was co-founded by his grandfather. In the ?80s, he came back to Duke for a glaucoma fellowship with me and then practiced both subspecialties at Scott White, although glaucoma soon became his primary interest and the bulk of his practice. He joined the American Glaucoma Society and was a loyal and active member. In the ?90s, he was appointed chairman of his department, which flourished under his leadership. Glen was one of the finest Christian gentlemen I ever knew. He was a devoted husband to his wife, Nell, father to his daughters, Amy and Anne, and grandfather to all his beautiful grandchildren. His untimely passing is a profound loss to our profession and to all of us who were privileged to call him a friend.
