dedication 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 named dean. 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 weapon. .'-,Y W.. . 11' - '- - 'j:- . ,-I I. I .V...m.-v 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 Society. 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. 4 g .l 1 X :fbi .- .
