Portrait of John Endicott Lawrence (1910-2007)

Lawrence was a trustee and honorary trustee of Mass General for more than 50 years and chairman of the board for more than a decade. His long service and devotion to the hospital earned him the nickname “Mr. MGH” among his friends. That devotion was more formally recognized in 1997 when the Trustees House was rededicated as the Lawrence House.
