Dr. DeWitt Halsey Sherman (1864-1940) was professor of Pediatrics, 1909-1929.  He developed the department of pediatrics at the University of Buffalo and guided the expansion of Children's Hospital. A graduate of the medical school, class of 1891, he left the bulk of his estate to the University of Buffalo Medical School, and with the bequest and generous gift of Mrs. Sherman, almost $500,000 was used in the construction of a new medical building.
