Katharine Walter Kalman, M.D. was born in Elkton, MD to George T.R. Walter and Pauline Frederick Walter.

Katharine knew from age five that she was to be a doctor, and she achieved that goal after attending American University and George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington DC. She met and married her husband while both were residents and, shortly thereafter, started a family.
Family life and the practice of medicine were her two passions but she also loved music, the outdoors, tennis, socializing, and shopping.

She spent over twenty years as a pulmonary physician at Rancho Los Amigos Hospital, and later worked with TB patients at various LA County Health Clinics until fully retiring at age eighty. She had also been Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at LAC-USC.

Katharine was predeceased by her eight year old daughter Kathleen, and brothers Thomas and Harry Walter. She is survived by husband Albert, daughters Andrea and Sheila, son Brian, and sister Naomi Thompson.

Graveside Services will be held on Saturday, December 26, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. at Green Hills Memorial Park, Rancho Palos Verdes.
