Dr. Berkeley Zinn was apparently on the faculty of the Trudeau School of Tuberculosis in 1952. The same year, his wife was involved with the Women's League of the Presbyterian Church.

Richard Ray wrote this about Dr. Zinn in his book, Saranac: 1937-1940: "Doctor Zinn, my personal favorite, was the only MD who always seemed to know my name without referring to a chart and to know why I was taking up a bed at Ray Brook."
