In Memoriam: Banice M. Webber, MD


Banice M. Webber ’45, MD, 94, died May 27. Born in Providence, he attended Brown and graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine in 1947. He trained in surgery and served in Korea in 1952 as an Army surgeon.

Later in his career, Dr. Webber became a radiation oncologist, ultimately founding Radiation Oncology Associates in Providence. He was a clinical associate professor emeritus of radiation medicine at Brown and an associate professor of radiation oncology at Tufts. His long and distinguished medical career included stints as president of the New England Cancer Society, the New England Society of Radiation Oncology, and The Miriam Hospital Staff Association. A lifelong sailing enthusiast, after his retirement in 2003 he tutored fourth- and fifth-grade children at Paul Cuffee School, a maritime charter school in Providence that he loved dearly.

He is survived by his two daughters, their spouses, and four grandchildren. Donations in Dr. Webber’s memory can be made to the American Cancer Society.
