New York Eye and Ear Infirmary’s (NYEE) 200-year journey has not been an easy one. Wars, pandemics, and financial meltdowns: we have seen and endured them all. So perhaps it is fitting that an institution that has weathered the vicissitudes of history and the constant flux of the health care industry celebrated its bicentennial year in the trenches—fighting the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 in the epicenter of the pandemic, New York City. While we were all looking forward to celebrating with friends and colleagues during numerous events, including the Bicentennial Gala Fundraiser in October, the restrictions on large gatherings due to the pandemic have caused us to postpone many of our plans until 2021. Despite the setback, NYEE faculty and staff marked our historic milestone with the publication of a history book and a dedication ceremony for a trailblazing physician.
