Biography of Dr. Harry Pike
Bronx County, NY Biographies





HARRY PIKE, M. D. Within the field of surgery, Dr. Harry Pike is making a fine contribution to that rapidly growing division of the metropolis known as The Bronx, whose people are justifiably proud of the generally high standing of its professional and commercial elements that are continuing to make for the progress of their community. While Dr. Pike is of the younger generation of physicians and surgeons, his innate capacity, plus a wide and related training, has placed him among the leaders of his profession in The Bronx, and he enjoys the esteem of a large and exacting practice.

Dr. Harry Pike was born in Russia, June 7, 1891, the son of Mandel and Rebecca (Miller) Pike, both of whom are living, his father being engaged in the mercantile trade in New York. He attended the grade and high schools of the city, and having elected the medical profession, entered the Long Island College Hospital. There he completed his training in medicine and was graduated in the class of 1914. He served his interneship in the Kings County Hospital, Brooklyn, and in 1916 entered upon his private practice in The Bronx. His practice was of a general nature until 1925, in which year he began to make a specialty of surgical cases. He has made consistent and timely advance in his profession, and is on the staffs of the Post Graduate Hospital, Bronx Maternity Hospital, and the new Bronx General Hospital.

Dr. Pike rendered a fine service to the United States Government during the World War. He enlisted and was assigned to the transport department, in which he found his place as a naval surgeon. He is a member in good standing of the New York State Medical Association, and The Bronx County Medical Society. He has contributed many papers on surgical subjects in different journals, and also is the author of a book on diseases of women. In politics, he is a Democrat, and belongs to the Jackson Democratic Club. His interests, though of broad and essentially helpful relation, are naturally centered in The Bronx, which is the scene of his professional endeavors. Coming in contact with large numbers of the community's people, he has made for himself a large place in their regard, and his active sympathies embrace all forward movements for the improvement of their affairs, physical, educational, and civic.

Dr. Harry Pike married, February 24, 1924, in New York City, Ida Weiss, daughter of Harry Weiss. They are the parents of a daughter, Elaine G. Dr. Pike has his offices at No. 1269 Grand Concourse, The Bronx.
