Dr. Harry P. Ward, chancellor emeritus of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, died at home last night. He was 74. Ruebel Funeral Home will be handling arrangements.
There is no service, but a visitation with family will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at Pleasant Valley Country Club.

Ward was credited during his 21 years of leadership from 1979-2000 with reshaping UAMS from a sometimes-struggling charity hospital to a colossus of health care and research.

He was also simply a good guy. His full obituary is here.
