Elson Craig, MD
Elson Craig, MD had plans to make a difference with his life. It wasn’t easy growing up on the East side of Columbus, but he was hardworking and determined. He was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” by his high school graduating class and they were right.
He received his undergraduate, graduate, and medical degrees at OSU where he also completed his residency. He was named chief resident and asked to remain on faculty. Over the next 40 years, he cared for countless patients, educated residents and medical students, and conducted eye disease research that continues to change the way we care for patients.
He wanted to make sure that his work would go on long after he was gone, so he made a planned gift to the Havener Eye Institute to further pathology research. His plan was to make a difference, and with his planned gift he continues to make a difference.
