Ted Lynch graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of X-ray Technology, the forerunner of the School of Medical Imaging, in 1941. After one year at the school, Ted was recruited into the military and served with a Johns Hopkins medical unit in the South Pacific islands. After his military service, Ted worked at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as an X-ray Technician with faculty member, Webster Brown, M.D., until Dr. Brown’s retirement. Ted then worked in the Department of Radiology at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore until his own retirement. In 1982, Ted was the first person to be inducted into the Maryland Society of Radiologic Technologists hall of fame. The Lynchs were married for 28 years, before Ted passed away in 1992 at the age of 79. Ted had a wonderful reputation for meticulousness, kindness, and patient focus. His colleagues and patients were uniformly appreciative of his compassion and exceptional care.

The Edmond and Mary Regina Lynch Scholarship is in gratitude of the training Mr. Lynch received at the School of Medical Imaging. Because of the Lynchs’ commitment to the profession and our institution, future generations will benefit from excellent training as they prepare for careers in our field.
