may be advantageous to you and in conformity with our appropriate legal
and tax requirements.

6. Esophageal Fellow
You will provide to me within the next week a proposed modus operandi

no later than June 30, 1977 and that we can count on your cooperation to assist
us in the transition period for the Acting Director of Surgery who will be

Your letter of May 27, 1977
/ / ,
" . / \
In regard to your letter of May 27, 1977, attached with acknowledgement of
receipt, there were several items upon which we agreed that were not included .
1] The funds contributed by the Weston Foundation in my honor and for my use in
esophageal surgery are to be used only by me either at The Je\'Iish Hospital or
2] The travel expenses, including one week's hotel and meals, for my lectures in
London, in June, are to be reimbursed by The Jewish Hospital in keeping with our
Letter of Agreement. I will also be on vacation two additional weeks at my own
expense .
3] Terminal compensation under the provisions of our Agreement be placed in
the trust account on or before June 30, 1977.
4] A suitable location for me to see and examine patients will be provided.
Other matters that should be considered at this time include:
1] Your letter states "other benefits as have been outlined in our Letter of
AC]reement dated June 23,1975, will not be applicable after June 30,1977."
This item was not discussed at our meeting on May 26, 1977. Please specify.
2J Under"#2. Secretarial support" discussed the matter of my secretary,
Natalie Meyer, working in other areas when I am away and she is not occupied
with mY"/ork. He did not take into consideration Meyer's own feelings.
She would prefer to not work in other areas and not be paid for hours when she
is not occupied with my duties . Her knowledge of my work and files makes her
presence essential to me during the transition period, therefore, your concurrence
with this arrangement is requested.
3] In regard to my phone, I request that my present numbers be transferred to the
new office as they are listed in the Cincinnati phone directory under my name.
It is also important that they be transferred to me or discontinued and reference
given to my new number when (no longer occupy an offi ce ; n the hospita 1. P1 ease
The Cdrbett Foundation was given to me for the work of HARP. The funds
should be made available to me at The Jewish Hospital or elsewhere.
5] It is expected that The Jewish Hospital will obtain documentation that
coverage durinq the period of time I was employed by the Hospital will continue to
protect me for life. As you know, should I choose a new carrier for coverage such
protection will be terminated.
Cooperation durinq the transition period is, I am sure, mutually desired.
FORM 194 R1
TO: Dr. Henry J. Heimlich DATE: June 1, 1977
FROM: Mr. Warren C. Falberg
SUBJECT: Announcement of Your Changing Role
Dear Henry:
I was most disappointed to receive your memorandum disagreeing with the
contents of my communication to the Board of Trustees regarding your change
in position. According to our discussions which we held on Thursday,
May 26, and the notes which I made, we agreed that the announcement would
state that you will no longer be the Director of Surgery by mutual agreement.
Additionally, it was your intention to devote more time to the practice of
surgery and research. I believe my memorandum very specifically spelled
out this issue and used, in fact, your own wording.
In regard to your other letter concerning the provisions of our letter of
agreement, please be assured that we will meet our obligations with respect
to the establishment of the trust by June 30, 1977.
Lastly, I have not received to date a .copy of my memorandum outlining the
.accommodations which we have agreed to signed by you and I would appreciate
your forwarding this signed copy to me as soon as possible.

circumstances surrounding it.
