Looking back upon toe pest tour years. I am sum wo aO had day when wo wondered it w would eve- graduate. It all started in 1991 during Orientation, when Dr. Joseph d splayed his famous pictures Of gore We all gared around the darkenod room to get a glimpse ot everyone' reaction ot disgust. As I sat there in neck. I began to ask myself, ‘Am I the only one m this room .iitim'dated by these photos? Will I ever have the ebJty to treat such patient ?
Now that four years have pasted, there t no reason tor us to ponder any more Instead, we car. hold our heads up high with genur.e pride and look on to the next step in our pod-amc cf'eers Armed with extensive knowSeCgo and wisdom, wc arc ready for new cha ienges.
A tremendous amount of effort from many people was necessary for production of the t995 edition of the Achilles. My jmcero thanks goes out to an of you vrho were invoked. I hope that ten years from now. ell of u will flip through the pages of this book with a strife, reliving the memor es lead-ng up to graduation from PCPM.
I with everyonein the Clast of 1995 good luck ;n their future endeavors. Just remember that as you tako pride In today's accomplishments, do not become complacent - keep striving to achieve higher goals.Retrospective of James E. Bates, D.P.M.
By Carrie Smith, Director of Public Relations
James Earl Bates, D.P.M. was born in Ligonier, Pennsylvania in 1923. As a young man. Dr. Bates became inspired by a dynamic podiatric physician named Alvin Mitchell. After some additional career counselling by his high school principal. Dr. Bates applied to the Temple School of Chiropody in 1941. He matriculated in the fall of that year.
World War II broke out in the middle of Dr. Bates' professional training, and many of the students at Temple University signed up in the U.S. Army Enlisted Reserves Corps; they were called to active duty in March 1943. After basic training. Dr. Bates and eight other students from Temple were transferred into the Medical Detachment Unit of Camp Wolters Station Hospital, and were assigned to treat the feet of the trainees in the six area regimental dispensaries and also in the hospital foot clinic.
After a bout with pneumonia. Dr. Bates was discharged from the Army and returned to Temple University to complete his podiatric training, graduating in 1946. As class president for two years. Dr. Bates worked with both students and faculty. He managed clinic schedules, acted as a mediator between classes and organized the Chiropody Ball.
1 le practiced successfully in Germantown for over 25 years. In addition to his practice. Dr. Bates held the part-time position of associate professor of Radiology at Temple University where he worked with Dr. Felton Gamble and ultimately. Dr. Vincent Jablon, both of whom were pioneers in the field of Roentgenology.
In the community. Dr. Bates served as president of the Board of Managers of the Germantown YMCA, trustee and chairman of the Finance Committee of the First United Methodist Church in Germantown, and a member of the Board of the Germantown Businessman's Association.
In 1962, Dr. Bates was persuaded to accept the position of president of the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine. Due to the urgencies for funds, Dr. Bates worked on a part-time basis, still relying on his practice for income until 1966, when he accepted a small salary for working two full days a w'eek at PCPM.
Over the years. Dr. Bates exercised many skills, l ie planned and directly oversaw the renovations of the former Skin and Cancer Hospital Building. Later, when the College outgrew the facility, he helped plan and oversee the new six-story PCPM building at 8th Race Streets. Then came the seven-story student apartment building and, finally, the construction of PCPM’s Foot and Ankle Institute. Due to Dr. Bates' foresight and leadership, the College encompasses almost an entire city block.
As a member of the Executive Committee of the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine since 1965, and president for three years. Dr. Bates has contributed expertise, guidance and leadership to the growth of the organization and to the colleges it serves. He has also worked actively on developing scholarships, grants, gifts, and trusts for the College. (Continued on next page)Dr. Bates is renowned tor his political discernment. He communicates on a first name basis with many local, state, and national prominent citizens and political personalities. As past president of Bucks-Montgomery and Greater Philadelphia Podiatry Societies, American College of Foot Radiologists, Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical Association, and the Federation of Associations of Schools and Health Professions, he is a vigorous force for strengthening the profession.
For 18 years he has actively led as Chairman of the Region Three Convention of the APMA, one of the largest, most popular and affordable regional meetings in the country.
PCPM has become the outstanding college in the collection of archival artifacts, gifts, old books and manuscripts on podiatric medicine. Dr. Bates has created and fostered-with the help of colleagues, friends, fine librarians and archivists in the United States and England- the largest library and archives collection in podiatric medicine in existence.
Dr. Bates is known and respected internationally, having served for 16 years as a Member and four years as Chairman of the International Committee of the APMA. He has also helped sponsor international courses at PCPM and offered faculty lecturers to foreign and international organizations’ programs.
In 1982 Dr. Bates was the only podiatric physician to have been awarded "Fellow, College of Physicians of Philadelphia", one of the oldest and most prestigious medical institutions in the United States.
In 1991, at the meeting of the International Congress of Podiatry in Nice, France, Dr. Bates was presented "Honorary Fellow of the Society of Chiropodists", an elected distinction awarded to only 18 American podiatrists in the 78 year history of the Society.
Most recently, in honor of Dr. Bates' 70th birthday and for over 30 years of dedicated service to PCPM, a Presidential Scholarship was inaugurated on June 2, 1993. A luncheon was held in Dr. Bates' honor. According to Dr. Bates, "The Presidential Scholarship Award is one way PCPM can assure that gifted students will continue to receive financial assistance and reduce the financial hardship they may incur during their four years at the Col lege."
PCPM will begin a new chapter in its distinguished history with a new president. Dr. Bates, the only president in PCPM's history, announced his retirement in June 1994. The College has been through a tremendous transformation in health care, and has led many of the advances in podiatric medicine and research. PCPM has emerged from Temple University and become the leading institution of podiatric medicine in the world.
In the words of Dr. Bates, "It has been an honor to serve as president of PCPM since its opening in 1963. As the new president leads the way in podiatric medical education, and as I consider the College's future, I am confident that the best is yet to be.'
Dr. Bates and his wife, Laura, have been married for 45 years. They have four children; Susan, Sarah,
J. Barrington, and IVilla, and two grandchildren; Olav and Laura Jaren. Dr. and Mrs. Bates reside in Philadelphia and spend lime at their vacation home in Somers Point, NJ.

The Class of1995 would like to present a gift to the future graduating classes of PCPM. It is a valuable tool which can be used in any stressful situation during your residency interviews. We have compiled a list of 20 different ways of stating, "I don't know, "during an interview. It is very important not to keep saying, "1 don 7 know. " If you do, it displays that you have a very narrow sense of imagination. Therefore, use this list frequently!
1) I DON'T RECALL.
2) Umm... Can you repeat the question?
3) I'M AFRAID THAT I'M DRAWING A BLANK ON THAT ONE.
4) OH NO, BRAIN FLATULENCE!
5) God, I KNEW THAT ONE YESTERDAY!
6) What do you mean by that?
7) Can you rephrase the question please?
8) Well, I don't know the answer to that question. However, I'm a hard worker and a people person!
9) Can I go to the bathroom?
1 O) You KNOW, THAT IS AN INTERESTING QUESTION.
However, I don't have an answer for you
AT THIS TIME.
1 1) AW MAN, I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE ANSWER IS TO THAT QUESTION IN THE PRESBY BOOK!!
12) Can you ask me something about antibiotics
13) I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH THAT PROCEDURE.
14) I THOUGHT THIS INTERVIEW WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ONLY 1 5 MINUTES!!
1 5) WHY ARE YOU ASKING ME ABOUT THE ANATOMY OF THE HAND? I ONLY REMEMBER STUFF ABOUT THE FOOT!!
16) Umm... Aah....Umm...Aah...
17) WHAT KIND OF ? @ QUESTION IS THAT, YOU @!! .
18) THAT STUFF ISN'T IN THE PRESBY BOOK!!
19) I DON'T KNOW, NOR DO I CARE. I WAS OFFERED A PROGRAM LAST NIGHT. SEE YA!!
20) YOUR LAST RESORT: I DON'T KNOW.Suggestion Box
The Class of1995 wants to make sure the transition into the era of a new presidency at PCPM is a smooth one. For this reason, we, the Class of1995, have brought to the table a few suggestions for our new leader to possibly take under consideration. Mr. President you will become an instant hit with the student body if you:
1 ) PROVIDE AMPLE FREE STUDENT PARKING.
2) Construct a force field in the clinic that will
PREVENT THE ATTENDINGS FROM LEAVING THEIR MODULE WHEN THERE ARE PATIENTS TO BE SEEN.
3) Set a stiff limit on how many patients can be seen on "Dr. Downey Days" in A.M. Surgery Clinic.
4) Provide more comfortable chairs in class so
THE STUDENTS WON'T GET STIFF NECKS WHEN THEY DOZE OFF.
5) SET MORE CONVENIENT OFFICE HOURS FOR THE BUSINESS OFFICE.
6) INFUSE THE ANATOMY LAB CADAVERS WITH 500 CC.
OF POLO COLOGNE IV BID.

10) Provide the PM modules with vacuums that work.
1 1 ) GET RID OF THAT ANNOYING SECURITY SYSTEM.
1 2) PROVIDE MEAL PLANS AT THE JOHNNY CART.
13) PROVIDE THE STUDENTS WITH PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINERS IN THE SCHOOL'S GYM.

Mom: 1 think back over all the years, who would have ever imagined it would end like this. Graduation is the culmination of one long journey that without a doubt started at the bottom. But, through it all you were the one constant in my life. The love and respect that 1 have for you is immeasurable. The amount of self respect, dignity and pride with which you have led your life has guided me to do the same, although not always successfully. Mom, I thank you, without you none of this would be possible... 1 love you.
Dad: Over the years we both have changed, we matured somewhat, we grew apart and then back together again. After many of years of searching I think we both have found what we were looking for in our relationship. While at times it hit bottom, I never lost the respect and admiration 1 have for you as a man. Your tendency for hard work, perfection, dedication, and confidence to lead yourown way are traits that I was fortunate to inherit, because these have played a major part of mv success. Your constant support over the years has been something I could always rely on regardless if it was monetary, eiridtiona 1,afriendshiporcompassion.

Graduating from PC I’M represents the completion of years of devotion toward fulfilling my personal dreams of becoming a health care professional. It also represents the completion of years of investment by my parents who have helped me tremendously during this arduous endeavor. Not only have I completed academic goals but I have honed in on my personaland business skills as I've developed into the person that I am today.
I d like to thank every family member for thdr support in any way. My degree in part is the result of their efforts to help me. Further, there have been friends and associates that have helped me along the way, froma kind word, something tocat,a place tostay, to personal sacrifice-thank you very much...vou know who you are. My wish is that in the future I can give back to those who have given to me.

Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road You can stand there and agonize Till your agony’s your heaviest load.
You'll never fly like the crow flics, get used to a country mile. When you're learning to face the path at your pace Ever)' choice is worth your while.
Well there's always retrospect to light a clearer path Ever)' five years or so I look back on my life And I have a good laugh.
You start at the top, go full circle round Catch a breeze, take a spill-

To my brothers and sisters: Bruno, Linus, Helen, Tom, Mike, Lasarian, Fidelia and sister-in-laws (especially Celia), and all of the OSHIO kids. Aunt Terry and mom, you have all been a constant source of support and 1 deeply appreciate your affections and care.

The perception of the passage of time has always amazed me.
Time appears to progress so slowly on a day to day basis that the "end of the road" seems quite distant when one is involved in a long term | curriculum or project. Yet in looking back upon the "road just traveled", one can't help but to wonder where has all the time gone?" For me, 1 have experienced both the best and worst of "times" of my life during my PCPM years. Each has involved the status of my health. Thankfully, I have been fortunate enough to regain my health, both mentally and physically. I should only hope that my fellow classmates and friends never take their health for granted, or anyone else s for that matter. For it is the possession of one's health that grants an individual the ability to obtain and perceive happiness and to help others attain the same goal. Good luck to all of you'
Above all. I would like to thank my family for their continued support throughout my life. I love you Mom, Dad and Davi!
To my closest friends: Michael (CS), Rock.Secord, Rico,Cork,and Maria—without your influences, sanity would not have been possible.
Lastly, 1 would like to thank Vanessa for always being a kind, caring and very special person in my life.

It seems hard to believe that 1,460 days have brought so many changes! Like the movement of clouds as they pass the sun, moments flash through my mind's eye:
gross lab (the room of the dismembered); Arti; when my grandmother died from cancer; ballet with Alex (my instructor, mentor, and friend); New York in the November rain; D.C. in the spring; Persian feasts on the floor; calling home when EVERYONE was there; crying with jov; laughing becauseit feels good; waiting for the plane; watching fireflies; holding hands under the moon; looking out over the city feeling silly in a long white dress with a veil listening to my aunts being daughterly sisterly a godchild a wife...and now, a graduate.
The memories all run together.
Thank you. Mom and Dad, for loving me through it all; forgiving words of guidance, encouragement, and hope. Thanks for being the greatest parents. I love you very much.
Garo, the future is ours. Let's roll the bones!

To My Very Special Daughter Ruth L. Gilliam
Always remember that if one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick up one of the pieces and begin again. Believe in your talent. It is what God gave you. Skill is how you keep care of His gift. No goal is unreachable when your goal is above the clouds.
No one can predict what height you can soar to. Even you will not know until you spread your wings. You are limited only by your imagination and dreams.
You are so very precious to me. I knew that the day you were born. Nothing has changed since that very special day.
To Ruth, Words can not describe how proud we are of you. Your patience and perserverance to obtain your goal is extremely admi- As you prepare for commencement day, your friends from Baltimore have a few words to say. We want you to know that your graduation fills our hearts with joy and admiration. We know how hard you've worked to obtain your dream, and we think it is really keen.
rable and because of those traits you will succeed at whatever you endure. You are one of a kind and with pride we say we’ll be your friends forever and a day.
With all our love. CONGRATULATIONS RUTH

Thank God an individual can grow! However, accept this point in life as a prelude to more challenging accomplishments. Do not lose focus as to where you can go. This is just a stepping stone toward greatness. You were blessed with tenacity to prevail. Key on that factor. Always strive to be the best at whatever you embark upon.
Having a daughter like you, makes parenthood especially rewarding. In essence, if everyone in this world could be exactly like you, this would be one wonderful place to live. Remember mostly that you have the love and support of your Mom and Dad both with you and behind you.

CONGRATULATIONS! ! !
At a very young age you had the vision
that caring for others would be your life's mission.
By high school you had formed your position.
Becoming a healer (heeler?) was your decision.
You worked very hard to gain med school admission.
A difficult task and no minor ambition.
Ignoring attrition and some inhibition
you stayed on your course, refusing revision
while avoiding collision throughout the transition.
Then came the search to land a position - against stiff competition.
Though no politician, you have great intuition.
And with your dedication and our affirmation you reached a solution to this situation.
Despite the frustration and no relaxation, your work bears fruition - a doctor's commission.
You deserve admiration, for sure recreation,
but there's still one condition..... repaying tuition!
With Love and Best Wishes for the Future Mom and Family

'The great thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.
In honor of your graduation I've written a little verse To help remind you how far you've come From Chem 101 at BU to Anatomy (and worse !)
The time we first met in Boston Is forever etched in my mind To meet you in Warren Towers Was truly an extraordinary "find"
You were in my mind both day and night At times just a phone call away We had our ups and downs, at times it was rocky I’ve told you once. I'll tell you again "I love you" and I'm here to stay.
I remember that 21 st day in August in 1993 Your brothers, parents. Father Andy and all the rest Gave both of us a gift, a memory that will last forever A day and an evening that Iknow was the best
Listening to your dreams of becoming a Doctor At the time it seemed so far away You never wavered in your conviction And now you’ve made it to that magic day
At PCPM the courses were tough and the challenges were many You put up with a lot. dealing with classes, investments and hot coals The months turned to years and passed in a flash It happen so quickly, now you’re achieving your goals
I’m very proud of you and all you have done It's your day to shine, reflecting on all your success The journey . the adventure has just begun Now let's celebrate and have some fun I
Carpe Diem !
