American trauma surgeon known for his research on shock, which initiated the current practice of giving saline to trauma and surgical patients. He operated on John Connally and Lee Harvey Oswald after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

After President John F. Kennedy was shot in 1963, he was brought to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where Shires was then chief of surgery, and it was Shires who issued the statement that the president had been dead on arrival at the hospital. Shires successfully operated on John Connally, the Governor of Texas, who was also wounded in the assassination. He later also operated unsuccessfully on gunman Lee Harvey Oswald after he was shot by Jack Ruby.

He was married to Robbie Jo Shires (nee Martin); the couple had a son and two daughters. Shires died of gastrointestinal cancer at Henderson, Nevada on 18 October 2007.
