Today's Globe: TB warning ignored, Fernald future, Shirley Maciver
A widely traveled Atlanta lawyer with a dangerous strain of tuberculosis was allowed back into the United States by a border inspector who disregarded a computer warning to stop him and don protective gear, officials said yesterday.
A sense of where she fit in the history of medicine informed Dr. Shirley R. MacIver's approach to being a physician, from the days she tagged along as a girl for her mother's nursing duties to her service on a state board in retirement. Dr. MacIver, who spent the last decade of her medical practice at Cape Cod Hospital and designed the medical herb garden at the Massachusetts Medical Society headquarters in Waltham, died at her house in North Chatham May 3 of complications from Alzheimer's disease. She was 85.
