The AARC was saddened to learn of the death of Peter E. Snyder, RRT, CPFT, an early pioneer in respiratory care who passed away in December at the age of 81.

A member of the first class taught by the legendary Donald F. Egan, MD, at Grace New Haven Community Hospital/Yale School of Medicine, Snyder served as an RT at Yale New Haven Hospital for 44 years, working in clinical medicine and research. His work led in part to a patent on a device to measure respiration.

A member of the AARC even in retirement, Snyder will be remembered by his colleagues for his devotion to the profession and dedication to improving care for respiratory patients.
