Francis P. Martin, M.D., FAAP, of Rockville Centre, N.Y., died Oct. 15 at age 73.

A track star at Notre Dame and at New York University, he was the only person to ever win three NCAA national outdoor titles at two miles. He won one national AAU championship at 5,000 meters and finished as an alternate for the 1948 U.S. Olympic team just two weeks before his medical school exams.

He treated three generations of patients while at Mercy Medical Center in New York, served on the board of the Marty Lyons Foundation, which grants special wishes for seriously ill children and served on the board of directors for Smith Barney Funds.
