Tribute

Dr. Morrow Chamberlain II, age 81, died February 3, 2024, of complications from CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia).  He was the son of Dr. Douglas Chamberlain and Mary Ellis Cairnes Chamberlain, the grandson of Morrow I and May Douglas Chamberlain and the great-grandson of Captain Hiram Sanborn and Amelia Isabella Morrow Chamberlain.

A lifelong Chattanoogan, Dr. Chamberlain attended and was graduated from The Bright School and The McCallie School.  He also attended the University of Virginia and was graduated from the University of Tennessee of Chattanooga.  He pursued his medical degree in otolaryngology, following in his father’s footsteps and practicing at Chattanooga Ear Nose and Throat. He was a flight surgeon in the Air Force

From an early age Dr. Chamberlain showed both interest and skill in the sports arena.  At McCallie he teamed up with a friend to become Coach Strang’s “dynamic duo” taking on and demolishing Mid-South opponents on the tennis courts.  On the basketball court he was equally skilled-being six feet, 5 inches was helpful!  Later in life, he became a ranked USTA tennis player in the Southeast, winning many tournaments.  He and his wife, Sue, cherished their love of tennis and golf together.  Their passion for travel, exploring the cultures, architecture, music, the arts, and geographic sites, took them to: Tanzania, Kenya, France, Italy, Brazil, Chile, etc…and including a special musical river cruise down the Danube River.

Another passion was music.  Coming from a family in which both performing and appreciating various forms of music was encouraged, he did both.  His early instrument was the trumpet; it was mandated he “practice” it out his bedroom window!  Later in life he was an ardent supporter of both the Chattanooga symphony and Opera; in fact, Opera become more and more a passion as he aged, and he followed local performances as well as The Metropolitan Opera enthusiastically.

He cherished his family and leaves behind his wife, Sue, of 35 years, his daughters Brannen Greenslade (Christopher); Carrie Lamb (Mike); Anne Morrow Frazier (Bryan) and six beloved grandchildren ranging in ages from 18 to 10 years old.  He also leaves behind Sue’s children, Heidi Johannsen and Heather Johannsen Erger (Ed), three sisters, Nan Smith (Gilbert), Betsy Tuller (Charlie) and Louise Tual (Blanchard) and dearly loved nieces and nephews.
