Service in a top academic or administrative position at one's
Alma Mater is a privilege accorded to very few individuals. To
have served in both types of posts is even more rare. However,
such is the distinction achieved by Charles Sherwood Cameron, M.D.
It was in November 1956, that Dr. Cameron was named Dean
of the Hahnemann Medical College, which iust 21 years earlier
had conferred on him his Doctorate of Medicine. In 1960, he
assumed the presidency of Hahnemann and served as both presi-
dent and dean until June 1961, when Dr. William F, Kellow was
A native Philadelphian, Dr. Cameron returned to his Alma Mater
after a ten-year stint as Medical and Scientific Director of the
American Cancer Society, during which time he also was elected
its Vice President. During this time, Dr. Cameron was in large
measure responsible for the development and expansion of the
Society's medical and scientific program of assistance to doctors
in their efforts to combat cancer. He long stressed the leading role
which must be played by the family physician in the control of
cancer, explaining "it is he lthe family physicianl who has the
opportunity to guide the patient to early diagnosis and prompt,
aggressive treatment." Dr. Cameron also established the Society's
Clinical Fellowship program, and under his direction, the Statistical
Research Section was developed into an important scientific cancer

Following his graduation from the University of Pennsylvania
and the Hahnemann Medical College, Dr. Cameron served his
internship and residency at Philadelphia General Hospital. For
the next four years he was a Rockefeller Fellow in postgraduate
cancer surgery at New York's Memorial Hospital, during which
time he came under the influence of many of the nation's out-
standing scientists, among them the late Dr. James Ewing, former
director of the Memorial Cancer Center.
Dr. Cameron was discharged from the U. S, Navy in 1946 with
the rank of Commander in the Navy Medical Corps, following
duty in the South Pacific and as Chief of the Tumor Service at
Brooklyn Naval Hospital,vthe Navy's principal cancer treatment
center. lt was at this point that he ioined the American Cancer
The list of his professional societies and associations is seem-
ingly endless. Some examples: Founder-member of the Inter-Society
Cytology Council, former president of the Commission on Cancer
Control of the International Union Against Cancer, member of the
board of directors of the Philadelphia division of the American
Cancer Society, former vice president of the Board of Health of
the City of Philadelphia, member of the National Board of Medical
Examiners, member of the traineeship committee of the National
Cancer Institute, founder and later consulting editor of CA -A
BULLETIN OF CANCER PROGRESS, advisory editor of the iournal
GERIATRICS and of EXCERPTA MEDICA.
His book, THE TRUTH ABOUT CANCER, since its publication in
1955, has been translated into nine foreign languages and six
editions have been printed in foreign countries.
