Extract from obituary in the Belfast Telegraph; a full version of the article is available here.

Charles James Hume Logan was born on March 3, 1931, and was educated at school in Lisburn and later at Campbell College, Belfast.

Talented at sport, he played cricket and rugby for Campbell College.

He captained the rugby XV which won the Schools Cup but, to his great and lasting disappointment, he was unable to play in the final because of a knee injury.

Hume Logan graduated in medicine from Queen's University, Belfast, in 1955, and was awarded by thesis an MCh (Hons) in surgery in 1966. He was also a clinical examiner at Queen's for two periods in the 1980s.

In a distinguished medical career he became a Fellow of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons in London and also Edinburgh in 1960, and in Dublin in 1976.

From 1962-63 he spent a year in Boston on a Fulbright Travel Scholarship.

He was also an examiner for the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons in Edinburgh from 1982-93.

During his time at the Ulster Hospital, he was a Post-graduate Clinical Tutor, a chairman of the Medical Staff, a member of the Medical Executive Committee, and a Unit Clinician.

Hume Logan was a consultant general surgeon at the Ulster Hospital Dundonald for 24 years until his retirement in 1992.

Ken Wilson, a close friend and medical colleague in the Ulster Hospital, paid tribute to Mr Logan at his funeral: "Hume was an outstanding general surgeon at the Ulster and was responsible for setting up the breast clinic in 1980, which provided a first-class service for patients.”

Hume is survived by Eileen, his wife of nearly 60 years, and their daughter Karen, and the wider family.
