About Lydia (Liidia) Gerhard (Luberg)

newspaperarchive.com › ... › Wednesday, January 22, 1958 http://newspaperarchive.com/ca/ Receives Eyes Dead Woman VANCOUVER (CP) - A snap decision by Vancouver General Hospital surgeons to remove the eyes of a woman within minutes of her death may restore the sight of a blind nurse. Surgeons were granted permission to transplant the eyes of Mrs. Lydie Gerhard, 48, by her brother Otto Luberg, of Calgary, who was at her bedside. Funeral service for Mrs. Gerhard, who became famous throughout the North in the 30’s for setting up lunch bars for prospectors, was held here Monday. She died Friday. Within an hour arrangements were made to perform the delicate operation on tlie nurse, whose name has not been disclosed by hospital authorities. The transplant was made but it may be some weeks before the final outcome of the operation is known. ‘‘My sister often told me during her lifetime that if her body could be used to aid medical research or for any other purpose I should give permission,” Mr. Luberg said. Mrs. Gerhard was known in many areas of Canada’s north-land and was the first white woman to reach Great Bear Lake.
