This rather idyllic appearing scene is one such, and though much emotional stress is sometimes involved, it may lead to another perusal of the sources and a better knowledge of the subject. TERRA MARIAE ( I MEDICUS 1951 The school circa 1870 The Annual Publication of the Student Bodies of THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE and SCHOOL OF NURSING Baltimore; Maryland ,■ . .• . i-: THE SCHOOL ,« - iM The students in the picture to the left are enjoying a custom of lounging between classes in front of the main medical school building. Assuming that this custom has been unbroken through the years this is the one hundred thirty-eighth consecutive such group to be allowed this particular privilege before this particular building. Annually since 1812, when the building was completed, there have left from these doors an unbroken succession of Doctors of Medicine. This is unique among medical school buildings on this continent and a point of pride among our gradu- ates. Indeed the school itself, although founded only four years prior to the construction of this building, is antedated by only four other American medical schools. The school has been strengthened from time to time since its inception by a method which, were it not for the ultimate purpose and results obtained, would remind one of those used by the various trusts and monopolies that have dotted .American history. This method is the elimination of competition, in this case by the ingestion and assimilation of three other medical schools which at one time or another have had their individual existence here in Baltimore. The first to be thus engulfed was the Washington University School of Medicine which was established in 1827 and " merged " in 1878. Through this maneu- ver the teaching beds at Mercy Hospital were placed under control. The Baltimore Medical College and the Baltimore College of Physicians and Surgeons were the other two to join us and were enfolded in 1913 and 1915 respectively. A DEDICATION Not alone to the student who for a few brief years is detained within these walls and is then released to take up the profession to which he has been introduced; but also to those in the later years who maintain the devotion, the enduring energy, to know the truth and let it be their guide, do we, the editors, dedicate this book. This school, this cluster of buildings here in downtown Baltimore, by its very nature, by the simple fact of its having been erected at all, is also dedicated to the same individuals; just as have solid buildings and temples for centuries past. But all this tradition and these fine buildings are not erected for the student and the student alone. We are students for a reason, and all this energy to make us students is not directed at learning in the abstract, but in its application. It is hoped that in learning all these sub- jects and facts and in applying them that we will not forget the one to whom the entire effort is directed, the patient. These freshmen, standing on the " preclinical " side of Greene St., are probably thinking of almost nothing at the moment but Anatomy. In the background looms what for them is yet to come, when as seniors and interns days, nights, and weekends will be spent in the Hospital. HARRY CLIFTON BYRD, B.S., L.L.D., D.Sc. Over at his College Park campus " Curley " may seem a little remote to most of the medical students, but his influence is very real in the Baltimore division of the University. As President of the University since 1936, after a nineteen-year reign as football coach and four years as assistant to the President and Vice President, he has had a guiding hand in the main physical develop- ment of the Baltimore schools as well as the better-known mushrooming of the College Park plant. His guiding theme at College Park, " A place in Maryland University for anyone in the state who wants to attend, " is consistently assailed by his implacable foe, the Sunpapers; but this smoldering war has so far only caused Curley the inconvenience of writing a statement to the press in reply. Possible contributing to his success in getting the legislature to promote the University ' s expansion are the usual aids which any politician needs: he is a native son (Crisfield 1889), is handsome, can speak well, and is a member of the necessary fraternal orders and societies. MAURICE CHARLES PIXCOFFS, B.S., M.D. A Chicagoan by birth, Dr. Pincoffs stayed there long enough to earn a B.S. from the University of Chicago in 1909; then migrated to Baltimore where the years have been spent constructing an amazingly varied and prominent medical career. Beginning with his graduation from The Johns Hopkins Medical Col- lege in 1912, he spent the years up to World War I as a general practitioner in his chosen city, then volunteered early when the U.S. entered the conflict. Captain Pincoffs won the DSC and Croix De Guerre in 1918, and, returning to his former haunts engaged in medical research in addition to his practice. These activities netted him an offer to become Professor of Medicine at this school in 1921. Since that time he has managed to become a Brigadier General in World War II, Editor of the Annals of Internal Medicine, civilian advisor to the Secre- tary of War, chairman of the Commission for Medical Care in the State of Maryland, and Assistant to the President of the University as regards the medical school. HAMILTON BOYD VYLIE, M.D. Among the things Dr. Wylie misses most after having attained what another chemist might call an endpoint in his career in the medical school is his former close association with the students. He has always been one of those educators to whom the personal touch, and even intimacy with his students has meant much. In his nearly forty years here; first as an instructor in Biochemistry in 1912 when fresh out of what was then called the Baltimore Medical College; as Professor of Biochemistry in 1919; progressing through such titles as Assistant to the Dean and Acting Dean, to 1948 when he became Dean; he has become an inescapable subject of conversation whenever this school is mentioned. Every- one knows him, but our present senior class is the last to have known him as the teacher that he prefers to be: friendly, smiling, somewhat of a disciplinarian, and gixing lectures riddleil ith cliches of his own making that we might ijctter remember the otherwise dry facts. 10 UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE BALTIMORE I MARYLAND OFFICE OF THE DEAN " I swear I vfill keep this oath according to the law of medicine . For the benefit of my patients I will pass my life and practice my art . " The fulfillment of this obligation is the most cherished privilege of the true physician. To the young physicians of the Class of 1951 I can wish no greater personal gratification than that which results from the con- scientious practice of this precept. U . , yiie, M. IX HBVY:LMC STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Left to right: John Barr, freshman class; William Esmond, senior class; Harrison Langrall, sophomore class; Hatfield, freshman; Ed Spiidis, sophomore; Bill Mathews, junior class; Bob Berkow, sophomore; Bill Kiser, sophomore; J. Walter Smythe, freshman. The Student Government Association is com- posed of members elected by each class. Regular weekly meetings were held throughout the year, and during the past year the Association has been very active. At the beginning of the year, a new constitution was drawn up for the Associ- ation, and it was voted that the Vice President o£ eachj class be included in the Council. A Medi- cal Movie Program was energetically promoted and provided all students with an opportunity to widen their experience by seeing a wide variety of medical films. The SGA has promoted the formation of the Student American Medical Association at the University of Maryland; Bill Mathews and Harry Walsh actively participating in laying the groundwork for this new organiza- tion. At the end of the year a Student-Faculty dinner was held at which the student representa- tives offered suggestions for improvements which would be beneficial to both the school and the students. Below are seen two views from one of the weekly meetings in the little office on the third floor of Gray L ab. IHTTlll Here in the Bressler Building the courses in anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and operative surgery are taught. The building was named for Frank C. Bressler, an alumnus of this school who donated funds for its construction. 13 THE OATH I SWEAR BY APOLLO THE PHYSICIAN, BY AESCULAPIUS, HYGEIA, AND PANACEA, AND I TAKE TO WITNESS ALL THE GODS AND ALL THE GODDESSES, TO KEEP ACCORD- ING TO MY ABILITY AND MY JUDGMENT THE FOLLOWING OATH: TO CONSIDER DEAR TO ME AS MY PARENTS HIM WHO TAUGHT ME THIS ART; TO LIVE IN COMMON WITH HIM AND IF NECESSARY TO SHARE MY GOODS WITH him; to LOOK UPON HIS CHILDREN AS MY OWN BROTHERS, TO TEACH THEM THIS ART IF THEY SO DESIRE WITHOUT FEE OR WRITTEN PROMISE; TO IMPART TO MY SONS AND THE SONS OF THE MASTER WHO TAUGHT ME AND THE DISCIPLES WHO HAVE EN- ROLLED THEMSELVES AND HAVE AGREED TO THE RULES OF THE PROFESSION, BUT TO THESE ALONE, THE PRECEPTS AND THE INSTRUCTION. I WILL PRESCRIBE REGIMEN FOR THE GOOD OF MY PATIENTS ACCORDING TO MY ABILITY AND MY JUDGMENT AND NEVER DO HARM TO ANYONE. TO PLEASE NO ONE WILL I PRESCRIBE A DEADLY DRUG NOR GIVE ADVICE WHICH MAY CAUSE HIS DEATH. NOR WILL I GIVE A WOMAN A PESSARY TO PROCURE ABORTION. BUT I WILL PRESERVE THE PURITY OF MY LIFE AND MY ART. I WILL NOT CUT FOR STONE, EVEN FOR THE PATIENTS IN WHOM THE DISEASE IS manifest; I WILL LEAVE THIS OPERATION TO BE PERFORMED BY PRACTI- TIONERS (SPECIALIST IN THIS ART). IN EVERY HOUSE WHERE I WILL ENTER ONLY FOR THE GOOD OF MY PATIENTS, KEEPING MYSELF FAR FROM ALL INTENTIONAL ILL- DOING AND ALL SEDUCTION, AN D ESPECIALLY FROM THE PLEASURES OF LOVE WITH WOMEN OR WITH MEN, BE THEY FREE OR SLAVES. ALL THAT MAY COME TO MY KNOWLEDGE IN THE EXERCISE OF MY PROFESSION OR OUTSIDE OF MY PROFESSION OR IN DAILY COMMERCE WITH MEN, WHICH OUGHT NOT TO BE SPREAD ABROAD, I WILL KEEP SECRET AND WILL NEVER REVEAL. IF I KEEP THIS OATH FAITHFULLY, MAY I ENJOY MY LIFE AND PRACTICE MY ART, RESPECTED BY ALL MEN AND IN ALL TIMES; BUT IF I SWERVE FROM IT OR VIOLATE IT, MAY THE REVERSE BE MY LOT. 14 . ■ ( " iii hl: RoIrii ll( | kins, vitcprcsidciil; William IlsiiiuikI, president; Robert Artluir, treasurer; Theodore Lanning, student council representative.

After several pre-war classes at Dartmouth, he served in the Naval Air Corps from 1941 to 1945. He received his B.S. in Medicine from the University of North Carolina. Lamar was married February 2, 1943 in Atlanta and is the father of two children. Layer Lawton, age 3, and Law Lamar, Jr., age eight months, Sports, sliding the trombone and strumming a guitar are his hobbies. He spent his summers farming in the hills of North Carolina. A spec- ialty in Medicine or Psychiatry and five chil- dren are his aspirations. ROBERT KEY ARTHUR, JR. Currently from Macon, Bob was born February 5, 1926 in Cordel, Georgia. He received his B.S. in 1948 from Mercer University in Macon where he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Previously he served twenty-one months in the Air Force Cadet program. He married Dorothy Bechtold on July 9, 1949 in Baltimore. Playing the trumpet and listening to classical music occupy his spare time; he ex- terned in Anesthesia at the University Hospital in 1949. He was class treasurer during his Jun- ior and Senior years and he can ' t wait to get back to the red clay hills of Georgia. 16 JOHN PAUL BARTHEL John, who spent most of his vacations furthering his medical experience, was born December 20, 1923 in Baltimore. He attended undergraduate classes at Western Maryland College and Johns Hopkins University. After serving three years in the Southwest Pacific with the Army Medical Corps, he was married to a college sweetheart in a candlelight ceremony at the Calvary Meth- odist Church in Washington, D.C. on September 21, 1946. His hobby is gardening— particularly rose and orchid culture. He externed ih Anes- thesia at the University Hospital in 1950 and hopes to do General Practice in a small mid- western town. EARL MILLER BEARDSLEY Earl was born on September 21, 1924 at Berwyn, Maryland. Undergraduate work was completed at the University of Maryland at College Park. He served with the USNR from 1943 to 1946 and was married on June 8, 1948 at Hyattsville, Maryland. He is the father of a year-old daugh- ter, Jane. One of the most avid bridge players in the class, he did, however, take time out during the summer of 1950 to externe at Penin- sula General Hospital in Salisbury, Maryland. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, he plans some day to settle down to General Practice. 17 ARTHUR KEITH BELL This self-termed " eligible bachelor " was born May 10, 1924 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He attended Marietta College and Columbia Uni- versity, but received his A.B. from Oberlin Col- lege in 1947. He served forty-four months in the USNR, two years with the amphibious forces in the South Pacific as Lt. (jg.) in command of an L.S.T. He was camp physician at the Orange Sullivan Scout Camp during the sum- mers of ' 49 and ' 50, and he spent his senior year externing at Church Home and Hospital in Baltimore. Art aspires to become a board member in Obstetrics and Gynecology. JOSEPH BILDER, JR. Born December 6, 1921, Joe received his B.S. in 1944 from the University of Akron where he was a member of Phi Kappa Tau. A Lieu- tenant in the Infantry from 1943 to 1946, he was married to Bettye (Tex) Bynum— an Army sweetheart— on September 9, 1950. Marriage, music and photography are his special interests. He was a laboratory technician during the sum- mer of 1948, and externed at Franklin Square Hospital in Baltimore from May 1949 to Sept- ember 1950. A specialty in Pediatrics and three children of his own (at least one son) are his future goals. 18 BEVERLY ROBERT BIRELY B. Robert spent his first twenty-eight years working towards his M.D. Born in Baltimore, undergraduate work at College Park, three years, twenty-eight months of which were in the S.W. Pacific with the Army Amphibious Command, helped pass twenty-four of the years. His mar- riage in June of last year consumed another day. Summer vacations since migration from the down-state campus to the Baltimore exten- sion of Maryland ' s University have been spent fishing, boating and externing at Union Mem- orial. Depending upon finances, either G.P. or Internal Medicine will consume the remainder of his three-score-ten. NANCY BLADES Nancy was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1926 but now resides in Summit, N.J. She received her A.B. degree from Connecticut College. Her hobbies include music and sports, particularly golf. Being a female, she is well versed in the culinary arts, as verified by the healthy fat look of some of her classmates. Her summers have been spent traveling, working at children ' s play- grounds, and as a camp counselor. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha, she was elected class secre- tary her junior and senior years. She externed at Women ' s Hospital in Baltimore her senior year and plans to specialize in Pediatrics. 19 JOHN WESLEY BOSSARD A Marylander all the way, John was born in Hagerstown on August 5, 1924, married Esther Holter in August of 1946 in Middletown and now lives in Glen Burnie. Reversing the usual trend, John went to Carolina for his college days, received an A.B. from Duke University in Durham. On January 5, 1951, John and Es- ther became the parents of a son whom they named Robert. John is quiet, unassuming, ap- parently unharassed by trivia of any sort; is def- initely not the ulcer type. He has made no long term plans— he figures the future will take care of itself. JOHN VANDALE BRANNON John V. Brannon, better known to friends and bridge opponents as " Sly John, " hails from Bridgeport in the Mountaineer State. He at- tended the University of West Virginia for sev- eral years when the " call of the west " took him to Texas. He helped develop the Rockefeller funds until Uncle Sam called him to instruct A.A.F. Cadets, after which he flew a B-29 over Japan. In 1942 Pauline Ward took John in hand. Since then John Jr., 7, and Beverly Joan, 5, have assumed command. Upon discharge John returned to Fairmont State College and was rewarded with a B.S. John plans a quiet life in the southwest as a G.P. 20 JOHN RUSSELL BUELL, JR. Via Bates College, Middleberg College and the U. of NL, this Sparrows Point product mean- dered his academic way to Lombard and Greene. This route took a thirty-six-month consuming detour through the Navy where John served as Communications Officer aboard a destroyer. He has worked in the Sparrows Point steel plant both in the mill and in the company hospital. A college romance, he reports, terminated in April of 1945 with marriage. However, " wom- en " still heads his list of hobbies, with beer, golf, and United States coin collecting following. After graduation he aspires to coin collecting (U.S.) as a General Practitioner. RUSSEL LEE CHRISTOPHER Chris bummed his first cigarette in Pawtucket, Rhode Island in lOliT; since then has elevated this simple habit spasm to an art. A graduate of Bowdoin College and a medical corpsman in the big war, Chris keeps his fingers nimble for his future in surgery by exercising them on the musical ivories. A summer ' s work in Dr. Uhlen- huth ' s " lively lab " put an edge on his scalpel and he has gained a summer ' s office experience with a local M.D. Chris is a member of Phi Beta Pi medical fraternity, and a family man. Chris Jr. arrived on the scene in 1949. 21 RAYMOND LEOPOLD CLEMMENS With the 103rd Infantry Division during World War II Ray saw France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Czechoslovakia. Last year he revisited France to review the sites of conquest, see first hand the post-war reconstruction, have a vaca- tion. Always on the move, Ray has sojourned at four different universities and one college, emerged with a B.S. In addition to his Euro- pean tour, he has externed at St. Joseph ' s, car- ried membership in Phi Beta Pi, of which he has been an officer, and been a member of the Newman Club. He deems his future uncertain. KAOHLIN MINER COFFMAN Curley not too quietly marched, more properly rotated, into Waynesboro, Pa., in 1923 and then on to an A.B. at Western Maryland College. Hunting and fishing have occupied part of our taciturn lad ' s time and the game was big when he hoofed it across France in 1944 and 1945. He made a trip to the altar in 1947 and passed out cigars for Douglas K. in the spring of 1949. Curley is a member of Phi Beta Pi, externed at Williamsport Hospital, Williamsport, Pa., and now has his sights set on a future of General Practice. 22 SOLOMON COHEN Erudite Solomon, whose mental capacity in no way belies his namesake, also possesses a warm, engaging personality and a trenchant wit. A lover of the open spaces as well as books and music, he accumulated some of his undergrad- uate credit at Denver where he was graduated B.A. and elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Extra- scholastic experience was gained at the West Virginia Medical Center, and his education gen- erously broadened by the Air Forces in which he served as bombardier. Asked his aspirations, Sol modestly remarked, " graduation, " but his class could testify that he could have listed more noble feats with excellent chance of realizing them all. RAYMOND RALPH CURANZY " Big Ray, " a well developed, well nourished white male considerably younger than his hair line indicates, came down from the hills to learn medicine after trying every other available means of earning an honest living. He has mined coal, assisted his father in maintaining electrical equipment, ran a drill press in Pitts- burgh, a lathe in Detroit, a bulldozer in the construction of the Turnpike. For three years the Army maintained him in the South Ameri- can jungles. Despite the variety, he found time to jaw Juniata College out of a B.S., and now will return, with his bride, a graduation present, to General Practice in Pennsylvania. 23 JOSEPH DECKELBAUM Although Deck considers his birthplace, Brook- lyn, New York, to be the garden spot of the U.S.A., he has lived in Baltimore for many years. Before coming to medical school Joe received a B.S. from the University of Maryland and helped many of his present classmates through organic chemistry when he was an instructor at College Park. Despite his activities at school and as secretary for Phi Delta Epsilon, Deck also has time to be a family man. He was mar- ried June, 1947 and now has a fifteen-month-old daughter. Deck will devote his attention to In- ternal Medicine and family life. ERNEST ALBERT DETTBARN " Professional Magic, " which he distinctly differ- entiates from medicine, and painting, which he calls " Art, " are the part-time hobbies of Ernie. Magic has earned him membership in the So- ciety of Osiris Magicians, Incorporated, and dur- ing college days at Randolph-Macon earned him pin money. In June 1948, he married Helen and they now have a little trick, Ernie Jr. Five summers he has donated to the Camp of the Maryland League for Crippled Children; anoth- er was spent at Frederick Memorial while still another he made money— as a Good Humor Man. He ' ll take his bag of tricks to a small town for General Practice. 24 LEON DONNER Either Pediatrics or General Practice will occupy Lee after he completes his hospital work and eventually squares away. College began for this Baltimorean at Maryland State Teachers College in Towson where he earned his B.S. Other work followed at Hopkins, Columbia, Gettysburg, the University of Maryland. Sum- mers have been concentrated at Camp Osceola in North Carolina, a boys ' camp, where he has served in various and sundry capacities, last year as Chief Counselor. Such work abetted his attraction to and allowed time for camping, swimming and fishing. Married, Leon has on3 daughter, Lesley Lynne, age six. His fraternity is Phi Delta Epsilon. WINSTON CLARK DUDLEY Wink was born in Tirumangalain, Madura dis- trict, India, in 1923, where his parents were serving as missionaries. His few stories of that land excel fiction. He came stateside for higher education at Oberlin College, and immediately after graduation the Navy commissioned him, sent him to sea. Ashore again after the war. Wink decided upon a career in medicine; mar- ried a college sweetheart to assure a girl in at least one port. His parents have since returned from India and he calls Aburndale, Massachu- setts, home. Like many of his classmates. Wink wavers between General Practice and Internal Medicine; fears the Navy may decide for him. 25 GEORGE MITCHELL DUNN, JR. Raconteur de-luxe, a fast man, especially with acrid retorts, he bifurcates his allegiance be- tween D.C. and Tennessee, and in both places attended colleges. A spare man, with moderate ambition, George is content with photography, horses, guns, drinking, drinking women, to pass his idle hours while working towards money. Internal Medicine, money, a Cadillac convert- ible. School nights found George, who was once reprimanded by the government for selling " tele- scopes, " either resting at Chicks or working as a medical officer at the Maryland State Peni- tentiary. Well versed medically, he spent eigh- teen of his forty-two service months in the Paci- fic with the 26th Medical Laboratory. WILLIAM ANDREW DUNNAGAN William A. Dunnagan claims to have been born November 21, 1920 on a boat off Cape Hat- teras. No other medical student makes this statement. He evidently made the beach, for he now calls North Carolina home. There he attended the State University, two years of med- ical school, and then migrated to Baltimore. During the war he was a pilot with the Air Force. He married in 1945 and is now the father of Charles and Carolyn. Bill has worked for the University Hospital Anesthesiology de- partment, joined Phi Chi. Summers he deliv- ered babies in the Carolina mountains. His am- bition—a big family. 26 DAVID EVERETT EDWARDS " Draw me a tall one with a short collar " was not the first utterance of casual Eddie of Johns- town, Pa., back in 1921, but the phrase was to be used. Moving to Washington, D.C., and stud- ies at George Washington and College Park gave Eddie some time to pursue his arty interest in oil paintings and classical music. His more strenuous pursuits have b een supplied in swim- ming and skiing. He served in the Naval Med- ical Corps during the war, is a member of Phi Beta Pi and has externed at St. Joseph ' s of Bal- timore and Spring Grove. Eddie has selected General Practice for his future. WILLIAM HUNTER EDWARDS, JR. Bill is a home town boy and although he re- ceived an A.B. degree from Johns Hopkins none of us hold it against him. Regarded as the quiet, reserved type, we are surprised at the diversity of his interests and activities. One is as likely to meet Bill at the symphony as they are at the next Hopkins lacrosse game. A competent biochemist, he worked for two summers at the National Cancer Institute. Last summer Bill ex- terned at Sheppard-Pratt and now has his eye set for a Psychiatric residency. In a few years we will all be able to bring our fractured libidos to Bill for r epair. 27 WILLIAM GEORGE ESMOND Our two-time class president has had a produr live thirty-two years. After College Park he put his technical training to work for the Army, attended both U.S. and Canadian Chemical War- fare Schools, finished as a Captain representing Chemical Warfare at Washington meetings. He holds membership in the American Chemical Society, Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, A.O.A. Three medical publications have been co-authored by Bill; he has a nerve research project underway, holds two patents, has four pending. Last summer he worked as a Good Humor Man. In collaboration with ■wife Ella, has produced two daughters, one son. He will specialize. OTIS DRUELL EVANS, JR. Except on state occasions this easy going North Carolinian refuses to divulge his given name; throughout his service in the South Pacific, Iwo Jima, Japan and China with the 5th and 6th Marine divisions he was known simply as " O.D. " Druell, though he appreciates the alleged finer things, sought but three things— at least third on the list was an M.D. and tho opportunitv to study Internal Medicine. To attentive list- eners O.D. will accurately locate his home town of Hickory, tell of college days at Davidson. Few things will keep him away from a baseball game —or any other athletics. 28 CHARLES KIRKPATRICK FERGUSON Twangy, tweedy, cautiously giegarious, Fergie shuns the specialties, hopes to be one of our future General Practitioners. He was born March 4, 1923 in Bellaire, Ohio. He completed his undergraduate work at Muskingham College in New Concord, the Buckeye State. For his hobby he enjoys playing around with photogra- phy whenever he finds a few spare moments. After serving thirty-one months with the Army, he was married on September 6, 1947 in George- town, Ohio. We aren ' t sure, but we think that a young addition to the family arrived around April, —or was it May, 1951. JOSEPH CARROLL FITZGERALD This friendly Irishman first saw the light of day on April 20, 1925 m the city of Baltimore. After putting in time on a Navy destroyer in the Pa- cific he came back and earned his B.A. degree from Middlebury College in Vermont. Ocean City sees a great deal of him during the summer when his chief interests become sailing and swimming. Joe and Homer will always be re- membered for their " pent-house " bachelor apartment where the gang met after school dances. Joe plans to settle down to General Practice after two or so hospital years. 29 ROWLAND ELDER FULLILOVE September 10, 1949 at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Jack, bolstered by roommates Homer and Joe, married Virginia Dudley Armstrong, M.D. Their honeymoon was delayed until summer of 1950 when they flew to Europe, spent two and a half months visiting cafes in France, watching bull fights in Spain. Before returning they had been to Portugal, North Africa, Casablanca, Egypt and Fez. This was Jack ' s second visit to Africa, having been there with the Army En- gineers during his three service years. Born in Athens, Georgia, Jack attended the University of Georgia, William and Mary. He plans to practice in Virginia, live in the country, per- haps start a " Tullilove Clinic. " JAMES PATRICK GALLAHER Congenial Pat started on his suave way from St. Mary ' s, West Virginia, in 1925. His location on the banks of the Ohio gave Pat ample oppor- tunity to pursue his favored sports of hunting and fishing. He received his A.B. from West Virginia University, after taking three years off for the Naval Air Forces. Pat aspires to a Gen- eral Practice in his beloved hills and he will share this life with Sara Underbill, whom he met while externing at Elizabeth Buxton Hos- pital, Newport News, and married December 22, 1950. His medical education has been advanced by a second externship at St. Joseph ' s Hospital of Baltimore. »»».««?«IKl»i 30 MARIO RUBEN GARCIA-PALMIERI Mario, the only admitted collegiate Magna cum Laiide in the class, (he attributes to beer and bad association, medical students, his minimal academic decline here at Maryland) was borr. twenty-four years ago in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. Each summer he has returned to his island, taught high school, shared a national interest in baseball. Senior year was spent furthering his medical student associations and externing at St. Joseph ' s Hospital.

He anticipates General Practice. 31 JOHN BUTLER GATES During the war, Deck Officer Gates served in the Pacific; helped run occupation tro ops to Korea. Also spent his first three summers of medical school on active Navy duty, but got wise last year, he admits, " played " all summer. Gay- lord, who will have to compete with Schlitz to make his city famous, wants to live where the sun shines most of the year— California, Ha- waii—hopes that Ob-Gyn or Internal Medicine will permit it. Two Big Ten schools. North- western and Wisconsin, shared in the education of " Bet a Million. " Entirely apropos therefore, is his avid interest in sports, especially football. BENJAMIN DICHTER GORDON " Bud " hails from Brooklyn, New Jersey, where he was born March 9, 1927.

FREDERICK MILLER JOHNSON Easy going Fred, born November 12, 1921 in Columbus, Ohio, received his B.S. in 1943 and M.S. in 1947 from the University of Maryland. He was an Army combat medic in Europe, and after a wartime U.S.O. romance, was married on June 22, 1946. Although his wife and son, Paul Samuel, age three, are his chief interests, he found time to play chess, do some Rorschach testing, and edit this year book. Two of his summers were spent at the Bethlehem Steel Co., and he externed at Spring Grove the summer of 1950. Besides staying out of the service, he hopes to become a small town G.P. 34 WALLACE EDWARD JOHNSON Wally is a product of New England ' s hardy stock. Although not in very good voice that first day in April 1923, he has learned better control and gives vent to fine vocal renditions on occasion. Hailing from Manchester, New Hampshire, Wally obtained his pre-medical work from St. Anselm ' s College and Wesleyan University, Connecticut. His love of reading and good music were not dampened by a rough tour of France and Germany with the U. S. In- fantry. His medical future is not definitely de- cided, but he has gained valuable experience serving an externship at Baltimore ' s Lutheran Hospital. PAUL EDWARD KASCHEL Besides being an avid philatelist, photography and golf are also among the hobbies of Paul who was born June 6, 1925 in Patterson, New Jersey. As a camp physician in the Adiron- dacks for two summers, he spent a great deal of time aquaplaning and water skiing behind his boat, " Belladonna " . He found time to ex- terne at St. Claire ' s Hospital, Schenectady, the summer of 1950. He has been president of the Christian Medical Society and " house doctor " at the local Y.M.C.A. for the past two years. He received his A.B. from Wheaton College and thinks that Uncle Sam will probably alter his plans to specialize in Internal Medicine. 35 WILLARD FR.EED KINDT Another spare time philatelist, Will, who was born on October 5, 1923 enjoys nothing more than taking an active part in political and phil- osophical discussions. He served thirteen months with the U. S. Navy and completed his undergraduate work at Muhlenberg College. He spent his summers at Camp Taitt in Pennsyl- vania where he was camp physician for two years, and Assistant Director for one year. Throughout his Senior year he externed at Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore and plans to practice general medicine and perhaps at a later date, Internal Medicine — all this unless his crazy driving catches up with him. VICTOR FRANCIS KING One of Baltimore ' s sons, Vic was born Septem- ber 27, 1925, attended the University of North Carolina, and after two years before the mast with the Navy ' s North Atlantic Fleet return- ed to the University of Maryland at College Park. Music and modeling occupy most of his spare time, and he claims to have been No. 2 man at Sears-Roebuck during his summer vacations. A member of Phi Beta Pi, he was the fraternity secretary at one time. He externed at Maryland General Hospital during the summer of 1950 and plans to specialize in Pediatrics. 36 DAVID MORRIS KIPNIS Sonny, born May 23, 1927 in Baltimore, received his A.B. in 1945 and M.A. (Biology) in 1949 from the Johns Hopkins University.

During the summer of 1949 he toured New England and Canada " ... avec femmes locale. " Besides a future academic career he plans to marry and raise a family. HARRY LESTER KNIPP " Hose Nose " has been a true Baltimorean since a rainy night in September of 1924. His thirst for knowledge was partially slaked by studies at Johns Hopkins, St. Anselm ' s College, Loyola of Baltimore and George Washington Universi ty. Between 1943 and 1945 Harry bombardier- ed in the Army Air Forces, then returned home for a mission to the alter, target - Barban Clarke. Harry Clarke was added to the Knipp roster in January ' 51. Phi Beta Pi received Harry ' s services as vice president and historian, and St. Agnes Hospital found him handy with the history sheets for two summers. A General Practice will occupy Harry in the future. 37 HOWARD CALVIN KRAMER Jack, the man with the little black mustache, is another of the native Baltimoreans in our class. Undergraduate studies were pursued on the campus of Cornell University and at College Park. Having served in the Navy during the last war. Jack loves to pass the time exchanging bawdy stories with former gobs; always seems to have one a little better than the next fellow. A daily battle of insults with Bob Venrose sharp- ened Jack ' s cutting verbal offense. He calls the four year fracas a draw. When asked about his plans after internship. Jack just cast his usual smile and hinted that it will be General Prac- tice. WILLIAM EUGENE LAMB Though now from Jacksonville, Florida, Gene was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He attend- ed Stetson University but received his B.S. from the University of Florida where he was a mem- ber of Alpha Epsilon Delta, pre-medical, and Phi Kappa Phi, honorary scholastic fraternities. He served two and a half years with the R.A.F. and two and a half years with the U.S.A.A.F. Married for over eight years, he is the father of two children. Interested in anything in the sports line, he has spent most of his summers resting and fishing. As for the future — either General Practice or Ob-Gyn. 38 THEODORE REUNEY LANNING Ted was born on January 21, 1921 and claims West Trenton, New Jersey as his home town. He attended Wesleyan University and Spring- field College and has his B.S. degree. He is single and lists reading, piano, and drama as his hobbies. He spent the summers of 1947 and 1948 at Mercer Hos])ital in Trenton as a labor- atory technician, and the summer of 1950 ex- terning at West Baltimore General Hospital. He served with the Civilian Public Service from 1944 to 1946. He is the class two-year Student Council Representative and hopes to specialize in either Internal Medicine or Psychiatry. JACK LEIBMAN Jack was born September 29, 1927 in Baltimore and received his A.B. at the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus in 1947. His chief interests are music, women (sans wine) and vending machines. His summer vacations have been spent as camp counsellor (1948), externing at Crownsville State Hospital (1949) . In the sum- mer of ' 50 Jack spent a month knocking about Havana. Throughout his senior year he ex- terned at Spring Grove State Hospital. He is a member of Phi Delta Epsilon. With his al- ready formidable background in Psychiatry, he plans to make this his speciality. Friends call him " Smiley " . 39 A 1 LEO HENRY LEY, JR. Leo, tho depleted of mane, stands immaculate and poised as our most eligible bachelor. Mel- lowing since 1914, he has that richness of knowl- edge offered by Notre Dame of South Bend and Mount St. Mary ' s of Maryland. To this may be added fifty-six months service with the Army Medical Corps. Tho fending off serious offers by the fairer sex, Leo readily accepted the re- sponsibility of Freshman class president and treasurer for Phi Beta Pi. A member of Alpha Omega Alpha and a two year extern at St. Agnes, Leo intends to return to a General Prac- tice in his home town of Cumberland. LEONARD MELVIN LISTER A member of the Phi Delta Epsilon and Alpha Omega Alpha fraternities, Len was born Jan- uary 5, 1923. He attended Loyola College and the University of Maryland, and served thirty- eight months in the Army as a laboratory tech- nician with U. S. Typhus Commission. Ath- letics, history of medicine, and classical music are among his spare time pursuits; his summers have been spent working with Dr. T. E. Wood- ward in infectious disease research. He was mar- ried July 31, 1944 and has a two year old son, Eric David. A full time academic career in In- ternal Medicine is his goal. 40 JAMES MELVIN MACDONALD, JR. Tho he claims Baltimore for his home town, Jim was Ijorn in .Martiiis illc, West ir; inia on June 2, 1927. On June 12, 1948 he was married to Francis Lyle Ellison at Saints Philip and James Church in Baltimore; is now the father of James M. the third. Young in years, Jim still found time to serve in the Hospital Corps of the U.S.N.R. as well as to earn his B.S. from Loyola College in Baltimore. Easy going and unperturbed, he is a member of Phi Beta Pi and aspires never to find it necessary to shave more often than every other day. EARL BOYD McFADDEN With two McFaddens in this class, E. B. has worn a mustache for differentiation. A man of many stories, few of which could bear repeti- tion, and none of which can be told with the same methodical McFadden relentlessness, he came to medical school via College Park. Mac has excellent command of simple Anglo-Saxon words; uses them often and appropriately. E.B., who claims to be the smallest male in his family, wants to be a country physician, have time for hunting and fishing. War years Mac served the Navy, a Lt. aboard an A. P. A. Med school sum- mers, he confesses, have been passed studying for re-exams. 41 I I JOHN WILLIAM McFADDEN " Little Mac " , who can still quote (sometimes ad nauseum) all the poetry he ever learned, is tone- deaf, likes good parties, knows his Culbertson. He was born March 25, 1928 in Cleveland, Ohio. He received his B.S. in 1948 fcom Mt. Union College ( " beat Nortre Dame in 1906! " ) . He was married June 12, 1949 and is the father of little Nancy Lee. Mac enjoys photography, but usually spends his summers working and fishing. Always happy, usually joking, friendly to all — expecially attractive women — he will take his family and his balanced sense of humor to Cleveland for his intership. RICARDO TOMAS MENDEZ-BRYAN Ricardo is a man whose only aspiration is to keep on being happy. He was born May 30, 1928 in Lares, Puerto Rico and received his B.S. from the University of Puerto Rico where he was a member of the Sigma Iota Alpha medical fraternity. He taught high school during the summers of 1948 and 1949 and externed at Mer- cy Hospital during his Junior and Senior years. Sports in general and billiards, in particular are his chief hobbies. Baseball (especially the Yankees) and women (any women) , each in the appropriate place, can give this Lochinvar adrenal tetany. 42 CHARLES WINIFRED McGRADY, JR. Mac was born January 16, 1924 in Macon, Geor- gia, and received his A.B. in 1947 from Emory University in Atlanta. After sixteen months in the V-12 program he served twenty-two more as an ensign in the South Pacific. He and Kay were married June 27, 1949 at the Cathedral in Baltimore, five days after State Boards. Thus Mac not only acquired a wife, but also a sec- retary, for Junior and Senior years Mac sat in class and listened, used wife Kay ' s notes at home. A Nu Sigma Nu man, he was secretary in 1949- 1950. Eventually he hopes to supplement the family income by practicing Surgery. KATHLEEN REILLY McGRADY Kay began medical school alphabetically ' way down as Kathleen Reilly, moved up to the " M ' s " when she and classmate Charles McGrady were married in 1949. She was born on November 10, 1926 in New York City, received her B.S. in 1947 from Long Island University. She is also licensed as a Medical Technologist, having trained at Mary Immaculate in Jamaica, New York. Reading, clothes, traveling between New York and Georgia, and, of course, her wifely chores, occupy most of her spare time. She and Mac externed at Queen General in Jamaica the summer of 1950. She plans to specialize in Pedi- arics, professional and personal. •••ja i.m m » 43 JOHN SHELBY METCALF, JR. After his freshman year " Moit " (of the little car and big bow-tie) forsook medicine to study violin at the Peabody, but returned when he realized a salpingectomy outdid a scherzo when it came to paying bills. He was born March 21, 1923 and hails from Carmel, California. He attended San Francisco Junior College and the University of California and served two and a half years in the V-12 program of the U.S.N.R. He was married April 14, 1948 at Springfield, Mass. He externed at Spring Grove State Hos- pital and plans to become a small town G.P. and to raise a large family. ROBERT SCHAAF MOSSER Behind Bob ' s blanket of silence rests a person- ality that few have been fortunate enough to appreciate. Those who know him well are priv- ileged to be able to share his wealth of intel- lect as well as his dead-pan humor. Although born in Philadelphia, Bob claims Cumberland as his home. His pre-medical course was taken at College Park where he met and married Ellen Notz. Bob is a member of Nu Sigma Nu fra- ternity and will go anywhere to make a four- some at bridge, otherwise golf or reading fill his spare time. Bob is playing safe and allowing his internship to decide his ultimate course in medicine. 44 ARTHUR ZELIG MUTTER It was not a bashful wailing that filled the Mut- ter ' s Brooklyn, N.Y., home when Art first tested his lungs. Art left the tree to grow, moved to Baltimore and on to studies at Franklin Mar- shall. Although denying special hobbies we know he is interested in sports, reading and music, and can bat the political breeze with the best. Though possibly shy with a curva- cious blond, ' twas a memorable day when Art looked Dr. Uhlenhuth squarely in the eye and quoted him the relationships of the parotid gland to the pinna of the ear. An externship at Elixabeth Buxton has further cleared that point. Art ' s future is undecided. DONALD JOHNSON MYERS A man who vaguely remembers events around the period of World War I, Don was born Oc- tober 2, 1912 in Steubenville, Ohio. He re- ceived his B.S. degree from Bethany College where he was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity. He was married on November 9,1939 and is the father of two children, Cynthia K., age nine, and David J., age four. He served two and a half years in the Army and though he spends most of his summers working, he enjoys fishing when he can find time. As for the future, Don will probably do General Practice in his home town. 45 EDWARD JOSEPH NYGREN As a climax to his three year tour with the Signal Corps, Ed found time to attend the Uni- versity of Paris (Sorbonne) . That, combined with pre-war college, permitted him to get his A.B. from Western Maryland in his home town of Westminster after returning stateside. Al- though surgery is Ed ' s one big love, he has others. For him, New York City holds an in- definable almost pathological attraction, and there he plans his hospital days. Vacation 1950 Ed revisited Europe, personally demonstrated France ' s need of CARE by returning thirty pounds lighter. When all else palls, Ed can slouch for hours listening to classical music. JOHN STAMBAUGH ORTH One of Baltimore ' s sons, John was born Decem- ber 2, 9 ' Ti and attended the Uiii trsiiy ol Maiy- land at College Park. He was married April 26, 1946 at Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and is the father of a three-year-old son, Paul Michael. He was a navigator with the Fifth Air Force in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater. He likes to spend his vacations swimming in Florida and found time to take in a surgical externship there dur- ing the summer of 1950 at Eglin Air Force Base Hospital. His future is undecided at the mo- ment, but he would like to settle out west. 46 DOUGLAS RICHARD PACKARD This twenty-seven-year-old student par excel- lence who understates his recreational interests as " all athletics, " camouflages his Jackson, Mis- sissippi, origin by calling Baltimore his home town. Sportswise, he split his educational ends wide— Texas A M and College Park, with time out for ETO cond)at duty as a BAR man. His army career was terminated by wounds and he was discharged partially incapacitated (physical- ly) , a fact which will not be corroborated by his fellow football players. Jackson is married, has one son, a " Junior " ; anticipates another quarterback this August. He is aiming towards General Practice— with time out for athletics. I DORRIS MARIE PENCHEFF Dorris was born November 5, 1929 and is mighty proud to claim Los Angeles as her home. She attended Immaculate Heart College, U.C.L.A., and received her A.B. from the University of Southern California, where she was a member of Phi Mu. Music and upholding California foot- ball teams (which she might do were there no " Big Ten " ) are her major interests. She externed at Santa Monica Hospital during the summer of 1949 and her senior year at Women ' s Hos- pital in Baltimore. For the future, she plans to return to California, specialize, get married, raise a family. 47 FRANK ROBERT PERILLA Smiling Frank Robert has traveled under the diminutive of his middle name through Drexel Institute, College Park and Medical School. War years found Bob in the ETO as a combat infan- tryman and he totaled three and a half years in uniform. A conscientious student, member of Alpha Omega Alpha and Phi Beta Pi, Bob favors athletics and himting as extra-curricular interests; worked for two summers as an athletic instructor on the Baltimore City playgrounds. Last vacation he externed at Newport News in the Elixabeth Buxton Hospital. Already he has determined his specialty— Ob-Gyn— but is un- certain as to where he ' ll practice. HENRY DAVID PERRY, JR. At the age of seventeen Hank left Miami, spent four years at Emory University, came to Balti- more free, white, and twenty-one. He leaves now, perceptibly four years older, married to a University nurse, Margaret E. (nee Wein- hold) , with an M.D. to add to his B.S. Vacation 1949 was spent in the pathology department of Jackson Memorial Hospital at home, and his last two years in Baltimore have been occupied, in addition to school and romance, externing at Lutheran Hospital under the vigilant eye of Shelley York. Serious about studies, never over- ly preoccupied, Henry often considers Internal Medicine; will let internship experience decide. 48 GUY McClelland reeser, jr. A long line of Reesers have written M.D. after their name and Guy, from Tilghman, Maryland, is carrying on. Born in Tennessee, he nonethe- less qualifies as a native of the eastern shore with his interest in fishing, boating and hunting. Undergraduate work was done at Western Mary- land and the year before medical school Guy and Dorothy Marie Stewart were married. Their son, born in 1949, named after Guy ' s fa- ther, became Guy McClelland III. Guy, who figures he saw enough travel with the Army, including a year of combat in Europe, has al- ready decided on General Practice at St. Mi- chaels, on his beloved eastern shore. HENRY GRAY REEVES. JR. Rewriting Scott, this young Lochinvar came cut- ting out of the south, from Whiteville, North Carolina, via Wake Forest College. An excel- lent student AOA member Gray has spent his summers externing at home, and his senior year at Women ' s. Balancing a distinctly scientific approach to medicine with an artful approach to women and sports. Gray can pass with equal facility— being either on the gridiron or at a Lanvale Street type party; has been termed a great competitor. At an early age he did serious research with monkeys, and under appropriate stimulus will present his findings. Always liking things tangible. Gray will be a surgeon. 49 EUGENE BRAIDEN REX Rex hails from the cattle country of Alamosa, Colorado, and he donned his first triangular chaps in 1922. Although he has a range of his own, his main interests were turned toward medicine and early preparation for this was ob- tained at Vanderbilt University. During the War, Rex turned his Western talents upon the German horde and helped drive them across Europe while serving with the 28th Division. After the war he roped Julie Looper, was presi- dent of Nu Sigma Nu and assisted Robbie in his skin clinic and office. He hopes a future in surgery will permit application of his sliding tithe-like fee system. GEORGIA REYNOLDS Georgia first gave vent to her forceful ways in the city of Colon, Republic of Panama. Since that day in 1917 she has followed a determined path which has been brightened by a love of music and the theater. She received her A.B. from Western Maryland College and served in the Navy Nursing Corps from 1942-1946. Geor- gia has elected to pursue the life of a General Practitioner and her training has been enhanced by an externship in Anesthesiology at University Hospital. We hope her desire for a quiet but lucrative practice will be fulfilled. 50 AUBREY DeVAUGHN RICHARDSON In 1919, after receiving his B.S. in Medicine from the University of North CaroHna, Red joined the class of ' 51. His undergraduate schooling at Carolina was delayed somewhat by ' the Army, wherein as a medic with the Trans- portation Corps, he made two trips into the Pa- cific, six to Europe, and found occasion to visit major points of interest. Summers he has been able to complement his liking for the ocean, fishing, swimming, photography by working as a pharmacist at Myrtle Beach. As an externe at Church Home, Red helped prepare himself for what he wants to be: " ... a good General Practitioner. " MARVIN JAY ROMBRO Bucknell University recalls Marvin as a student in quest of a B.A., the Army knew him as a 1st Lt. Bombardier, and Lutheran Hospital saw him as an externe, but here he will be remem- htrcd ;ii most lre(|ueiitly seen, bcliind a l)ig ( igar at tlic bridge tabic, usually winning. Baltimore 1)0111 ami l)i(.(l, I ' ll!

He plan s on doing General Practice in the Monimiental Citv. 51 HARRY SHEPARD ROWLAND, JR. Harry Shepard is the little-known never used given name of this New York City born, Wes- leyan educated young man. Though Rumson, N.J., is now his home, Shep seldom gets there. Senior term he moved to Mercy, worked there throughout last year. Before that, Franklin Square had his services. In addition to student nurses, Shep likes going after big game fish, water sports, horseback riding; has spent one summer as a lifeguard, another doctoring Boy Scouts, With the Navy last war as an aviation cadet, Shep may return as an M.D. He likes Surgery; will either cut or do General Practice. ARMANDO SAAVEDRA-AMADOR Though medicine is Armando ' s grail, and he plans doing General Pracice in his home town of Quebradillos, Puerto Rico, he has, on occa- sion, participated in the Puerto Rican national pastime of politics— but wants it known that he campaigned for the Independentist party. His hobby of color photography, and results thereof, have enlivened several prosaic periods when a projector was available. He shows discretion in subject material. The University of Puerto Rico granted Armando his B.S., and four years as a Lt. with the Quartermaster Corps convinced Armando he " . . . don ' t want any more! " ; he just wants to become a husband and a father. 52 ARTHUR HENRY SCHMALE, JR. Art started life in Lincoln, Nebraska; in his migration east stopped at Pennsylvania State College for his pre-med work, spent three years in the Army ere reaching medical school. Orig- inally of the class of ' 49, Arthur tangled with Koch ' s bacillus as a Junior, battled with it one year, had a thoracoplasty, eventually joined the class of ' 51 as a senior. Early in medical school he got in two summers ' work at Lincoln General Hospital at home. Internal Medicine is what Art is eventually hoping to do. He balances that interest with dilettante i:)hotography, raising ito[)i(al fish, oiiicn. ROGER 1)A II) SCOTT Under what he terms " voluntary conditions, " Scotty and Dorothy Roberts exchanged vows at the University of Virginia Chapel in 1946 when Roger attended that institution. Previously he had studied at the University of Florida. Two children will accompany the Scotts back to Rog- er ' s native Florida where he plans to practice. . n inveterate if not invulnerable pinochle play- er, Roger works hard, likes photography, fishing, hunting and television. His armed forces ex- perience he dismisses abruptly as " unpleasant, " doesn ' t relish the prospect of more. Roger, who is noted for his thorough interrogations, be his target patient or professor, is himself never at a loss for answers. 53 JOHN THORSEN SCULLY Friend of the working girl, or any other avail- able woman, " Long John " of Gary, Indiana, did his undergraduate work at Indiana University, spent thirty-nine months in the Army Medical Corps before entering Maryland. A walking embodiment of the " Information Please Alman- ac, " this black Irishman can tell you the Ken- tucky Derby winner of 1915, Luke Appling ' s 1935 batting average, the blocking assignments for the Notre Dame offensive. Senior year he externed at St. Joseph ' s; often took his calls from Chicks or Phils. John plans to put his thorough knowledge of fundamentals and phe- nomenal memory to work in Internal Medicine. WILLIAM HAROLD HOLLAND SHEA December 7, 1941 Willie was aboard a merchant- man steaming towards Pearl Harbor. Feeling inadequate for battle at that stage, he reversed course, came home, joined the Navy. Fighter Pilot Shea returned to the Pacific in a Grum- man, stayed three years, earned a few medals. This connoisseur of brew, authority on aircraft, relaxed but efficient student, attended Loyola College; has flown with the Naval Reserve at Anacostia on alternate week-ends. Will ' s Og- den-Nashish verse and bottomless barrels of stor- ies have enlivened his associates through dreary ays of labor. Married in ' 48, Bill and wife Boots have one son, Danny. 54 SAMUEL NORMAN SHERRY One of the native Baltimoreans in our class, Sonny is a true Marylander. He received a B.S. degree at College Park where his reputation as a fanatic footgall fan remains unsurpassed. His interests in the theatre, added to his many ex- periences in Europe this past sunmier, have no doubt influenced this gifted raconteur in the art of conversation and the telling of jokes. Son- ny is a member of Phi Delta Epsilon Fraternit y and spent two years in Uncle Sam ' s Navy before entering medical school. Whatever field of medicine he may choose, all of us know he will soon be one of the best doctors in Baltimore. LESLIE DALE SIMMONS Dale joined the group in 1919 after a B.S. in Pharmacy and two years of Medicine at West Virginia University. Following outstanding play with West Virginia ' s national basketball cham- pions of 1942, Dale served in the . rmy medical department during the war. During his . rmy career, he got a ten-day leave to marry another mountaineer. Dale enhanced his medical acu- men by serving an externship at Fort George Meade in the summer of 1950. He maintained his thirty-eight waistline playing basketball in a Fat Men ' s basketball league his senior year. Dale intends to return to his beloved West Vir- ginia as a General Practitioner. 55 EDWARD N. SIPPLE Known to his classmates as " Eddie " or " Sip, " he had his first obstetrical experience in 1920 in Burlington Iowa, but understandably remem- bers very little of the technical details. During World War II Eddie traded his civilian clothes for an Army uniform, was assigned to the well known Americal Division, and spent a number of months in the Southwest Pacific. Eddie ' s pre-medical training was varied. He attended Dickinson College, Johns Hopkins University and received his A.B. at Earlham College. Be- sides pursuing his medical curriculum Eddie was recently successful in still another pursuit, hav- ing been married in 1948. Eddie ' s ambition is to become a G.P. ROY KENNEDY SKIPTON Five years with the 82nd Airborne took Captain Skipton through France, Holland, Belgium and Germany. For all this he was awarded seven combat decorations plus four battle stars and the bronze arrowhead on his ETO ribbon. In return, he gave his right eye, part of his skull; wounds received while fighting in the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, after the hospitals, he married Mary Eleanor McLaughlin, and they now have two daughters. Skip was born in Excelsior, Minnesota, where the shades of night fall fast, and was graduated from College Park in ' 42. After internship, he is pointing for Ob- Gyn. 56 DAVID MILTON SOLOMON Dave was just a tiny lad when he checked into Baltimore in February of 1927. His interest in golf and other sports certainly had no detrimen- tal effect on his physical growth and his mental talents were sharpened at College Park where he obtained his pre-medical education. Ikloic starting his studies of Cecil and Christopher, Dave developed sea legs serving with the U.S. Merchant Marine. During a busy four years, Dave served Phi Delta Epsilon as treasurer for one term, studied OB during a summer ' s work at University Hospital and found time to court and wed his attractive wife, Kay. Future plans are for a specialty in Ob-Gyn. JOHN HOSKINS STONE Jack, who once gave his all making Dr. Harry Hull look sharp, professes a special interest in good parties; denied that, he ' ll listen to any kind of music or even play tennis. His trek towards the specialty of Internal Medicine be- gan at College Park, went slightly askew some three plus years in an Army Heavy Mortar Bat- talion, but righted itself during two summers of Army-sponsored externship. In search of she- kels after the freshman year, he tried mining coal in West Virginia; ended up recuperating at Ocean City. Phi Beta Pi, of which he has been president, helped supply Jackson with par- ties. 57 1 JULIAN THEOPLOUS SUTTON The Navy interrupted Julian ' s undergraduate work at the University of North Carolina in 1942, eventually commissioned him and sent him to the Pacific Third Fleet. In celebration of receiving his gold braid, he got married, now has a son, Jay, five years old. Post war he re- turned to his native Carolina for two years of Medical School and then took the established route to Baltimore and the U. of M. Summers he has eschewed medicine and worked in the building contract business. For relaxation, he prefers woodwork, tinkering with cars, pinochle. The Navy left its mark: He aspires to be a civilian doctor. RICHARD BOYD TOBIAS The Army called Toby early in World War II and before his enlistment terminated, after five years, he had served the Medical Corps in every capacity except as veterinarian. Formal educa- tion he garnered at the Universities George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Bucknell. In 1944 Toby, in Texas, asked his girl, in New Jersey, about marriage. She met him half way, he says, and the wedding was in St. Louis. They now have two sons. An indefatigable reader, he never forgets, can quote journals, texts, the Reader ' s Digest; is seldom without an answer. Internship will be in Williamsport and there- after, small town General Practice. 58 HOMER LEE TWIGG, JR. Our perennial Student Council representative Homer came down from upstate Maryland to College Park, spent two years in khaki, even- tually matriculated in the school of medicine. Always a good student, never " spastic, " he finds ample time for tennis, dances, Nu Sigma Nu. Unless pressed. Homer would rather read a nov- el than make a diagnosis, listen to music than murmurs, see a play than a patient. Emulating classmates ' vacations of the previous year, sum- mer 1950 found Homer in Europe— France and Switzerland. He visited hospitals, compared techniques, investigated continental night life. He prefers the scalpel to the stethoscope, and seeks the specialty of Surgery. MELVIN MICHEL UDEL Though he traveled with the Navy as an Op- erations Officer for a destroyer squadron, Mel ' s greatest thrill to date was his trip to France in the summer of 1949. To quote, " ... a French brochure said, ' Come ' . I did. " He ad- mits to multi-faceted interests, sculpture, Chal- iapin. Bach, imported wines, the financial suc- cess of commercial photographers, but his one genuine interest, never camouflaged, is psychi- atry. His quest of the functional has led through Princeton, College Park (A.B. 1947) and externships at Crownsville and Spring Grove. Acquisition of an M.D. is, for him, one step closer to psychoanalysis. 59 ROBERT JAMES VENROSE Always busy. Bob has taken time from studies to serve as class president, president of Alpha Omega Alpha, be a Phi Beta Pi member, vend medical equipment for Murrary-Baumgartner. A University of Michigan grad, he majored in Zoology, participated in athletics, won a varsity letter. Last War he served three years with the paratroopers and two with military govern- ment in Japan, emerged a major. Always the scientist, he explains his marriage to Helen in 1946 as " an attraction of opposing forces. " Though his home is Youngstown, Ohio, he plans on General Practice in a small town— " ... where a physician is needed. " CHARLES POLK WATSON, JR. The University of West Virginia first saw Char- lie as an engineering student, but post-war, post thirty-three months overseas (Africa, Sicily, It- aly, France) , he returned, switched to pre-med, took an A.B. In 1948, during a summer thunder- storm, he married Frances, a home town New Martinsville girl, and spent the rest of the vaca- tion as a carpenter. Throughout the senior year he assisted Robbie in the Clinic and office, learn- ing the efficacy of calamine. Called ' Pokev " by his wife, his middle name is Polk, something similar by his cohorts, he is meticulous and thorough, he anticipates General Practice in West Virginia. . kiiSSSii ■i.

Just look for the nearest trout stream, for next to practicing Internal Medicine, Bob would just as soon spend the rest of his life camping and trying to hook the big ones. Bob hails from Cleveland, Ohio. He received a B.S. from Heidelberg College in near- by Tiffin. Prior to medical school he spent three and one half years in the Army and Navy. While in Baltimore he stopped cussing local drivers long enough to many Elizabeth Owen, Peabody Conservatory graduate, and to have a son, Owen Bradford. HARVEY PRARSE WHEELWRIGHT " I want to (1) own the longest, blackest Cad- illac in the State of Utah (2) Practice in the Golden West (3) have four children. " These are Harvey ' s ambitions and he ' s on his way. He and wife Saxon, whom he married in 1944 after his graduation from pilot training, anx- ious to use his silver wings, already have Greg and Lon, and another coming. The reason for " blackest etc in Utah " — he lives there, at Og- den. The oiih Mormon m the class, H;ir ' at- tended Brigham Young University.

Even though he spent two of his three service years overseas, the prospect of more service, this time as an M.D., he finds attractive. He was born in Pennsylvania, went to school in Pennsylvania (Gettysburg) , married a girl from Pennsylvania. Last summer Maryland General accepted him as an extern and both he and the institution prof- ited. Charlie never forgets a case. The future —immediately a Navy internship, fatherhood —eventually either Internal Medicine or General Practice. SHELLEY CLYDE YORK, JR. This York— also a Carolinian, but a full term Maryland man— was born in High Point, lives, off season, in High Point, and will return to High Point. Guilford College gave Shelley the requisite background for entering medical school, and he has furthered his practical know- ledge with summer jobs in hospitals. Junior and Senior years he has assisted Drs. Wagner and Krause at Lutheran Hospital and became adept at navigating around the " pearls. " In- terests other than medicine are minimal, the exception, nurses— especially Student Nurses— for whom he feels a clinical affinity. He ' ll spec- ialize— " ... a belly surgeon, " he says. 62 THOMAS LUTHER YORK Up from North Carolina came Tom, wife, and son Thomas at the close of summer 1949. Tom finished Carolina ' s medical school after serving in the U.S.N. ' 43- ' 45. Student days he aligned himself with the Greeks, A.E.D., K.E., and Phi Beta Pi Summers have been spent at Boys and Girls Camps— as Camp Doctor. In addition to an avid interest in all things medical, Tom ' s favorite activity is horseback riding— in Balti- more a recreation, at home a necessity (Denied) . The York family will leave Baltimore one-third larger than on arrival. Following internship, Tom et al will settle in " ... Swannanoa, North Carolina, which is near . . . " . CALVIN LESSEY YOUNG Cal aspires to " ... a measure of humility. " This falling within the domain of things func- tional rather than organic, it is not inappro- priate that is main interest, excluding cats, ra- dios, music, pediatrics and small European-made cars, is psychiatry. Further, this dominant in- terest has led to two summers ' work at mental hospitals- 1950 at the USPH Narcotic Hospital in Lexington, Ky. His B.S. came from Haver- ford. At Christmas time, freshman year, having weathered Drs. Uhlenhuth and Davis, he took courage, and married. Young Eric C. Young, born last year, may divert Cal from psychiatry to pediatrics; will certainly contribute towards filling the measure. 63 IB ; K. lUUli The University Hospital: erected in 1933-34; containing 435 tjeds and 65 bassinets; and source of much clinical experience.

CLASS of 1952 The class of 1952 officially set foot on Terra Mariae Septem- ber 14, 1948. There were 98 hopefuls the first day and 97 the second, one having succumbed to the odors of the anatomy lab. Our first president was quiet, soft-spoken, efficient Bill Pillsbury. Even in the first year class spirit was high and several organized parties were held. During the second year, while in the midst of " fevah therapy, " Harry Walsh arose as our leader. With the coming of the Junior year ten transfer students bought shoes and came North while we re-elected Harry as helmsman. A survey shows that the average age of the class is 24.96 years, 45.4% are married, 70.7% are veterans and there are 0.23 chil- dren per man. 65 ft wiMm ■;) n ( f . 9 9 9 p. ?

CLASS of 1953 After having weathered the spastic freshman year under the guidance of Bob Custer, the class of 1953 elected Buz Langrall as its leader for the sophomore year. A class party at the Up- lands Community Hall on February 9th during which the profs were panned in a skit and the students relaxed, some to a point resembling deep ether anesthesia, was among the activities knit- ting the class together. Other activities were a basketball team that beat the highly-touted freshmen, a touch football team, a Softball team, and an organized and perpetual pinochle tournament in the student lounge at lunchtime. 69 9 ' f 9 9 p. 9 .0 or 9 (J lO O O O . 5 c Q , f o L»uis Arp Richard Baldwin James Banks Grace Bastian George Beck Robert Berkow Samuel Blumenfeld James Boggs Joseph Bove George Brinkley Thomas Burkhart Walter Byerly Bernard Byrnes Charles Carroll Donald Carter John Clift John Codington Jerome Cohen Salomon Colon Lugo Arthur Cook Wyand Doerner Rowland Dowell John Dumler Jules Edlow Harry Eye Hugh Firor Leonard Flax Sylvan Frieman Frederick Garlock Joseph Garrison George Gevas Joseph Gilotte Robert Goldstein John Hartman John Heisse Kenneth Henson Thomas Herbert Charles Hess George Himmelwright William Holder Henry Jones Thomas Jones Walter Judge Werner Kaese William Karn 70 Robert Kingsbury William Riser Arthur Knight Robert Lambert Harrison Langrall Benjamin Lee Herbert Leighton Robert Levine Rafael Longo Cordero Cordon Madge Don McCurry Archibald McFadden Ronald fendelshon John Metcalf Benjamin Middleton James Might Leslie Miles George Miller Norman Miller Joseph Palmisano George Peck James Powder James Read Joe Richardson Lewis Richmond James Rowe Richard Schindler Joseph Shuman Robert Singleton Thomas Skaggs William Slasman William Smith Edward Spudis John StauRer William Templeton Morton Treiber James Troxel William Tyson Arnold Vance Herbert Walter Jack Watson Karl Weaver Joel Webster Harry Weeks Israel Weiner 1 ) f 1 0 , J ?»J f , ,1 , 1 o O O O ' o ' ' ' 9 9 .O C O O: .o C o o, o, o idi l i iti fTi O.

CLASS of 1954 Starting the year with a flat one hundred matriculants, the class of 1954 came largely from the state of Maryland (73 mem- bers) and the City of Baltimore (51 members). The 27 out-of- state students came from literally the four corners of the country: Washington state, Maine, Florida, and Puerto Rico being among those represented. Of additional interest is the thirty year spread between the ages of the youngest and oldest members of the class. An intrepid basketball team, the " medics " had phenomenal success in a local amateur league using members of the class who had played college ball. 73 W fe A- 5 h- " " !

Two of these lecture series would qualify one for the diploma from the original University of Maryland School of Medicine. By the time 1839 rolled around the curriculum had grown to two six-month lecture courses, but only four months of each were actually required. Slowly the sched- ule lengthened until after the Civil War, when there was a three-year course in full swing and the preceptor reconunendations had been fortified by the requirement of some evidence of formal edu- cation, either a high school diploma or a written test. In 1896 the three-year schedule was raised to four with the high school diploma lequired instead of optional. One year of college became mandatory in 1914; thus making a noteworthy stride toward mod- ern medical standards. Coinciding with this increase in tempo and breadth in medical education w as the increase in the physical plant of the school. The first University Hospital, erected in 1823. was one of the first in this country to i)e used solely for teaching. This building was ex- panded and remodeled to finally become the Old University Hospital and, with the inexorable progress of steel beam construction, gave its place in the teach- ing program to the New University Hospital; becom- ing itself the outpatient dispensary. Today we see advances in construction again reflecting the advances in medical teaching with the erection of a large wing of the hosjjital to be used largely for psychiatric teach- ing and treatment. The page opposite pictures the rising framework of this structure which is to con- tain 150 new beds along with numerous aids to psy- chiatry such as one-way observation rooms, and re- cording apparatus for the interviews. 77 ANATOMY EDUARD UHLENHUTH, Ph.D. Professor of Anatomy and Head of the Department After relegating our fear of the Almighty to second place for a year, our most famous foreign- born (Walkensdorf, Austria) professor retired from our active scholastic lives to the labora- tories of Bressler, regrouped his innocent ferocity for future classes. He studied in Vienna and came to Maryland in 1925, complete with ac- cent, flowing mane, bow ties, enthusiasm. Con- tinuously engaged in teaching, research, publica- tion, family life, his schedule is active. In 1936, he won the Van Meter Prize. Who can forget those pelvic fascias he practically created, those practically bilingual lectures and exercises? Who can forget the man? Below we find Dr. Krahl lecturing to the class. .Actually this had hecn a lecture by Dr. Uhlenhuth on his beloved and lielaljored endopelvic fascia. l)ut when the photographer showed up he became surprisingly shy. The well- known wh ite mane and cigarette holder are seen in the foreground. 78 Early in llie year. Iiefore the first of three written exams, the most difficult dissection of the course (that of the head and neck) was outlined by Dr. Krahl for Kdwards, VVellivcr. and Wohl. ?- ) .

With this the structures were separated, rather than shredded. A surgeon who finds time to teach the freshmen anatomy.

FIGGE, Ph.D. Professor of Anatomy From the spectacle of fluorescent lights shown in Paris the summer of 1951 and his spread in " Life " in 1947 you wouldn ' t rccogni c the cjuiet chuckling man surrounded by mice on the sec- ontl floor of Bresslcr. How can a man who demonstrates the bovine laryngeal musudature so authentically that a farmer was hoaxed by the synthetic moo be so unassimiing? F.H.J.F. received his Ph.D. from the University of Maiy- land in I9;i4; has been on the facidty since 1929. His ex]jloring mind has led to research where he is now engaged in the laboratory figlu against cancer. Dr. Figge liabitiially Itclurcil while strolling about the room w.lli the mitrophoiie. 81 Professor Harne helps Barr on a " trip around the world " microscopically speaking.

Here Dr. .Mack helps Dr. Figge load the pro- jector. .Somewhat hesitantly, as is his habit. Dr. Lutz picks out the proper (|U()tation for Knotts. Usually this only resulted in another ques- tion from someone else at the table. 82 NEUROANATOMY The Inilk of ilic (liuliiiiK in iKMiri anatoiiiv was (lone in this kind of a group. Here Professor Harnc helps some of ihc tiass suiily the lirain stem. The dissetlions were done Ijy the in- dividual students at their own tahlc. Frequently enough to make it interesting, Dr. Figge would have the neurosurgeons present and dis- cuss a case for the freshmen, ' [ ' hey are shown answering questions after the case presentation across the street in the University Hospital. The physicians in this case were Drs. ' lurner and Mangarrcllo. 83 BIOCHEMISTRY EMIL G. SCHMIDT, Ph.D., LL.B. Professor of Biological Chemistry and Head of The Department Ever hear of Osceola, Wisconsin? There ' s a professor aroimd school who can tell you all about it. Dr. Emil .Schmidt was born there and knows well that part of the world. In quest of higher education he went to the University of Wisconsin where he received a Ph.D. in 1924. The following year he came to Maryland as an instructor in Biochemistry and in 1948 became head of that department. Here is a man who not only can speak with authority about Wis- consin, but also can explain what puts the blitz in Schlitz. Always ready and able to answer the sometimes desper- ate queries of the students, Dr. Schmidt found that Miss Bechtold needed some help in calculating a titration. . [ the time Miss Berk was waiting to let go with another question concerning the experiment at hand. These stock bottles held supposedly carefully made-up solutions, which were not always verified by our re- sults. Blumfield and Bullock are loading up with NaOH. Some called il salmon pink, some tailed ii " sammon " ; but whatever the name was. that is what Dr. Herbst is helping a grad student identify. Baitili gets his routine bur- ettefull of distilled water while Brown waits, and Dr. Vanderlinds smilingly adds a word of advice. Titration curves were not the easiest things in the world to plot, and here are Hayes and Hat- field determinedly watching drops turn pink. Ann Virginia Brown and Miss Nemo were two of the lab assistants respon- sible for checking on the normality of solutions and the status of equipment. Here they seem to be checking the status and normality of John Barr. Once the lab period got well under way and the bench got loaded with dirty glassware some would start borrowing their neighbors ' equipment. 85 PHYSIOLOGY WILLIAM R. AMBERSON, Ph.D. Professor of Physiology, and Head of The Department This Pennsylvania Dutchman became Profes- sor of Physiology in 1937. En route from Har- risburg, his birthplace, to Baltimore, he ac- quired a Phi Beta Kappa Key, a Ph.B. from Lafayette, a Ph.D. from Princeton, married, had a daughter. Always active in research, his work has taken him to European universities, led to the publication of papers, occupied his summers at Woods Hole. Though some students admitted failure to comprehend the intricacies of his neurophysiology lectures, often wondered just what that " big neuron " he talked of actual- ly did in such a little fish, all appreciated his patience, his humor, his clarfying co-authored text, enjoyed his friendly clashes with Dr. Davis. The semester in Physiology began with some experiments on cold-blooded animals. The turtles in the pictures be- low have been stunned and the students are getting the feel of setting up the rather frustrating kymographs, levers, turtle-boards and various stimulating devices.

Professor of Pharmacology and Head of The Department Our " John Nesbitt of Pliarmacology " began his professorial career in 1921, assmned his pres- ent chair in 1932. From Maryland he has three degrees (Ph.D. 1928, Colloidal Chemistry), hcn- oraries from two other institutions; in 1929 re- ceived the Simon Medal, Ebert Prize in Chemis- try. He has been director of .Sharpe and Dohme Pharmaceutical research. Chief of the Marylanil bureau of chemistry, since 1940 chairman of the U. S. Pharmacopoeia Revision. Married, with one daughter, this Baltimorean (1899) has ]nib- lished a novel, co-authored two texts (Pharma- cology, Speech) contributed heavily to scientific literatine. Dr. Carr answers a few questions on some of llie more common anaesthetics and illustrates his remarks with a few structural formulae while Goldstein, Codington and Karn remain unanes- thctizcd bv the flow of wisdom. While Dr. Hcrgyson explains the Drinker machine. Mimmelwright, Bastian. and C:iifl listen as if they understood what it was all about. 89 The experiments in Pharmacology ' were usually done on some animal such as the rabbit, and usually followed the sequence outlined in the pictures alove. Bove takes a ralibit from his cage; Arp and Holder wait in line to weight them. Colon-Lugo, Frieman and Berkow tie theirs down: and finally the experiment is consummated with the injection of the drug into the animal by Himmel- wright while Gevas, Bove and Hesse watch. Using the same anesthetic machine that is used across the street in the hospital operating rooms, Dr. Carr helps Mr. Harne in one of his demonstrations of anesthesia, in this case concurrent EKGs were taken and studied, (below right) Mr. Harne demonstrates four different types of anesthesia by knocking out mice in a jar with them.

Although Dr. Krantz ct al. tried to allay some of the tension there was something about those politely asked, but detailed questions that was totally unnerving. Nobody has yet found out whetlier the results meant anvtliine on the final reoort. Waiting for a mouse to come out from under the dose of anesthesia are Dr. Carr, Byrnes, Karn, and Kaese. I his is another view ot the same demonstration as on the opposite page. Here we see the dog to a little better advantage. BACTERIOLOGY FRANK W. HACHTELL, M.D. Professor of Bacteriology and Head of The Department In 1904 a student completed the medical curriculum of Maryland Medical College who had attained the ultimate in pre-Krantz prescrip- tion writing. He later projected that skill into all his scripting, with unmeditated oblivion to Palmer, and all students of medicine in this in- stitution since 1924. Away from the agar, stains, sugars, mice and microscopes, Dr. Hachell, who has a truly elephantine memory for names, an alacrity of action athletic, a propensity for bow ties aristocratic, relaxes with Shakespeare: over the years has amassed a prodigious amount of lore concerning the bard. Imiminology came the second semester, .As always the deciphering of Dr. Hachtells handwriting started f " ' " ' = " ' " Langrall and Ben Lee each laboratorv period.

SPENCER, M.D. Professor of Pathology, and Head of The Department Since his graduation from the Baltimore Medi- cal School in 1910, Hugh Spencer has been as- sociated with this institution. After working a year in physiology, he switched to pathology, studied two years at Hopkins, has since exer- cised the pathologists perogative of always hav- ing the last word, except with wife Lillian whom he married in 1912. Tho ' born in Baltimore (1888), he grew up in the county, still likes to slip away for hunting and fishing. During World War I he served the Army as a patholo- gist, was overseas for thirteen months. Dr. Warner at Baltimore City Hospitals discussed several cases each week with the Juniors who happened to be on that particular section. Dr. Barnett demonstrates a few rheumatic cusps to Douglass and Duntord. 94 During ihe second half of the sophomore year pathology is introduced to the student through histological sections. This microscopic approach is less accentuated in the Junior year when the gross specimens and autopsies are studied; but to the right we see four members of the Junior class checking pathol- ogy slides. Left to right are: Kramer, Lightbody, Lapp and Olsen. Probably Dr. Wright ' s most famous quotation was, " You may think to look at me that I ' m a city boy, but I ' m really from the country. " Here he presides over G.L pathology and points out a few lesions of the l iver for Sharrctt, Sindler, Smoot and Slager. 95 He of the dry wit and almost totally individualistic medical theories, Dr. Fisher displays a few of his pickled beauties to Hankoff and Houch while the Hunters relax in the background. Autopsies are still one of our chief sources of medical knowledge and the one recorded below starts off with everyone wearing a mask because of the suspicion of tul)erculosis. Dr. Nichols takes out the brain (upper right) and will take it across the street for sectioning. By the time Dr. Reimann and Dr. McNinch dissect the individual organs there is a more casual feeling about the possibility of catching anything. The findings aren ' t too. dangerous-looking and the masks have disappeared. 96 Once a week in the senior year there was a Clinical Pathologic Conference on a medical and a surgi- cal case. Here Dr. Ycager presents the surgical case to he followed by a discussion and then the find- ings at autopsy. Dr. Reimann demonstrates a few x-ray bone changes to Berios and Alderman in surgical pathology. Neuropathology, as taught by Dr. Wagner, can be an informative course. Below he runs through the descrip- tions of a few of his priied brain sections. 97 CLINICAL PATHOLOGY MILTON S. SACKS, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine and Head of Clinical Pathology Dr. Sacks first saw the Baltimore city lights in 1909. In 1930 a B.S. was awarded him from College Park, and in 1934 an M.D. from the School of Medicine. Extensive training led to boards in Internal Medicine and Hematology. Somewhere along the way he met Nell, his wife, and from this union have come two daughters, two sons.

NELSON CAREY, M.D. Professor of Clinical Medicine That whirlwind tearing through the halls and wards is Dr. Carey. He is the man, it is rum- ored, who can do a complete physical in forty- two seconds flat and come up with the correct diagnosis. A Baltimorean since a memorable day in 1904, he received his pre-medical work at Loyola College and graduated from the Uni- versity of Maryland School of Medicine in the class of ' 27. Being a good internist has created a rush schedule divided among classroom, hos- pital and office. An interest in photography and antique collecting used to occupy his spare time when not working on medical publications. Filled schedules now leave insufficient time for his love of music, the theatre, and evenings with his family. .■ major part of the time in the fourth year medical section, one month of which was at Mercy Hospital and one month at I ni ersiiv. was spent in ward work. This consisted of a complete history and physical together with such lali work as was not done by the intern of the hospital lal): usually the urines, hlood counts, and stools falling to the student. Charley Watson, being on Medi- cine, is caught in the midst of his ward work with a twenlvfoiir hour specimen under one arm. a stool specimen in hand, and searching for that other single specimen of urine; hoping to get through with enough time to say " hello " to the patient before he goes to sleep. 99 T. Conrad Wolff, Associate Professor of Medicine. Head of Physical Diag- nosis. The introduction to a lifetime of history and physicals came from him. The Juniors take care of outpatient medicine and below we find Wolfel taking that voluminous history. Trace doing that complete physical, and Wol- verton and Warren handing out the prescription, feeling very much like Doctors. Needle-sticks were seldom indulged in during the junior year, and when they were the apprehension was usually more on the part of the student than is indicated in this gag shot, posed by Spritz and Smoot.

M.D. Professor o[ Psychiatry and Head of The Department Dr. Finesinger is that rare professor who asks, " What do you think? " and doesn ' t mean " Guess what I ' m thinking. " Tliis near heretical approach has been perfected since he left Oil City, Pennsylvania, studied at Hoi kins (B.A., M.A., M.D.) did work in neurology and neurophysiology at Boston, in Europe, taught and continued his research at Harvard. Married, the father of two teenagers, he is now devoted to teaching and research — " Must test things out, it ' s the only way. " — Aspires to make his depart- ment, " The best there is! " " Medical students must first have a scientific orientation, but additionally be able to evaluate patient ' s problems as they bear on the illness, must understand the doctor- patient relationship and as doctors do more comprehensive work. " The tliscussions in Dr. Finesinger ' s office could and would involve any topic in the imagination. The two views to the right indicate the relaxed atmosphere. Below are a group of the Juniors discussing a case they have mutually interviewed with Dr. Gross. 105 SURGERY CHARLES REID EDWARDS, M.D. Professor of Surgery and Acting Head of The Department For the student, maintains Dr. Edwards, there is no substitute for clinical experience — they must see things. Born in West Virginia, he came to Baltimore at the age of five. After high school he tried business, was dissatisfied, turned to medicine and was graduated from Baltimore Medical College in the days when a senior student could voluntarily do interne ' s work (fee: |150 extra), when graduation was uncertain until commencement. In World War I, he did detached duty with the French, worked in the laboratory and at the bedside with the then miraculous Dakin ' s solution. His family, (three daughters, five grandchil- dren) golf, medical biographies, occupy his lim- ited leisure. The section looks with bemused expressions at an X-ray of a patient with ileus whom Dr. Edwards was dis- cussing. Discussions with Dr. Edwards were always relaxed, some- what amusing, and highly informative. Here he ex- changes pleasantries with Blades, Birely and Bossard. 106 Thurston R. Adams.

NELSON, M.D. Professor of Anacstliesiology and Cfiairnian of Tfic Department Dr. Nelson, a Baltimore boy, was born on February 29th, a leap year lad. For higher education he shopped around — Southern California, Michigan — but returned to Maryland for medicine, was graduated in 1943, married the same year. Away from the O.R., he plays golf, pets his dog, takes pictures, has recently turned to the violin. MacDonald has tried and failed in doing a spinal with the patient in the reclining position. Dr. Nelson takes over and strikes bone on several tries, so he sits the patient up and the success of the maneuver is self-evident in the lower picture.

DOUGLASS, M.D. Professor of Obstetrics and Head of The Department Having seen the obstetrical service expand from 360 to 3,000 deliveries per year under his direction. Dr. Douglass can justly be proud of his well-conducted department. A native of Danville, Virginia, Dr. Douglass received his medical education at the University of Mary- land, and has been associated with the school in an instructional capacity since graduation forty-odd years ago. He is a veteran of World War I, having served as a Navy Medical Officer for two years. A grandfather with three grand- children. Dr. Douglass ' two aims are improve- ment of his woodworking ability and removal from obstetric practice of the Mauriceau-Smellie- Veit maneuver. Besides giving a series of lectures to the Juniors, Dr. Savage was also very active on the delivery floor teaching his meticulous methods to the Seniors. Here Art Mutter helps him do a D C. One night Dunn look his camera up to the delivery floor to follow the activities of the groiip then on duty. At the top left Art Mutter sits writing up a case when he is called to rectal a patient. .She is rcaciy. he follows to the delivery room where he holds her for the saddle block.

Techniques with forceps were demonstrated to the Jun- iors on OB at BCH, but the students did only the un- complicated deliveries. It doesn ' t take four students to check in a new arrival, but evervone had plenty of chances ' at measuring and examining this newborn. For some, OB at City was the first taste of sterile tech- nique. On duty, but elsewhere when the pictures on the pre- ceding page were taken were (besides futter): Don Myers, Bob Mosser, Kay McGrady, Ricardo Mendez- Bryan, and Shelby Metcalf. 1 16 GYNECOLOGY JOHN MASON HUNDLEY, JR., MA., MD. Professor of Gynecology and Head of The Department This distinguished native Baltiniorean received from St. John ' s College his A.B. and M.A.. and in 1916 his M.D. from Hopkins. A.E.F. service in 1918-19 and studies at Kiel and Berlin furthered his education, gynecologically, socially. Member of numerous national and local medical associations, he has headed his de- partment since 1936, is a frequent contributor to medical litera- ture. Fred Hatcm relentlessly questions his patient as to when, how much, for how long and other items pertinent to a GYN history. The most imporiunt thing learned in GYN was how to do an intelligent pelvic.

EDMUND BRADLEY, M.D. Professor of Pediatrics and Head of The Department Born in Baltimore, Dr. Bradley spent his youth in Howard county. After graduating from Loyola he attended Medical School at George- town, received his M.D. in 1932. Graduate training followed at Mercy and Children ' s in Boston. His bachelorhood was ended by Miss Kathryn Davis Strong in 1933 and fatherhood came with children Mark and Marcia. While engaged in active practice, until 1946, he was an instructor in Pediatrics at University. Two years were then spent as Director of Pediatrics at the Permante Foundation in California and Oregon. Maryland reclaimed his service in 1948 when he returned as full-time professor of Pediatrics. Harry Knipp holds while Vic King gets a pipette-full of blood from the heel of an infant. Two complete blood counts were required each week on each patient. Dr. Click, in his usual energetic manner, leans over the table and tries to estalilish some contact with the baby and its mother. 118 Dr. Bradley makes up to a patient while Kindt, and Knipp take mental notes on the technique. rTi] ' I " i Willy Kindt gets ready to replace some of the baby ' s blood through a scalp vein while Vic King handles the clamp and nurse keeps things steady. The clinic at Mercy was usually pretty busy, but Buell takes time out to show a young patient some of the methods of doctoring. 11 9 Shep Rowland has no trouble getting down and mixing with the younger generation; but Scully just sits and ponders. " Kids, " he says. Bossard runs up a urine all by himself in the cubbyhole lab at Mercy. The clinic was one of the main sources of pediatric knowl- edge.

Below right, Fred Johnson listens to some infantile protests as Dr. Caplan stands ready to perform the rest of the physical. 120 George Iten takes a history from a mother who brought in five children, all with the same thing. George had to do a history and physical on all of them. Joe Bilder. who expects some day to be a Pediatrician, sharpens up his ability at establishing a doctor-patient relationship with the younger generation. The biggest time-waster on Pediatrics was the temptation to play with the kids. Bilder, Birely. Bell, Ager. and the nurse are all indulging in this pleasant pursuit. 121 DERMATOLOGY SYPHILOLOGY HARRY M. ROBINSON, SR., M.D. Professor of Dermatology Robbie, of the quick, friendly smile, pat or low posterior jab, has a path strewn with the marks of a great teacher. This started in Cin- cinnati back in 1884. New York City public schools and the Oxford School for Boys readied Robbie for the Maryland School of Medicine. Post graduation, class of ' 09, he opened a gen- eral practice which was supplemented by studies at Hopkins and University. An early interest in Dermatology and Syphilology led to research and specialization, to American Boards in ' 33, to a professorship in 1937. Robbie has many and varied interests including the theatre, painting and poetry. Of poetry, he has written and pub- lished several volumes. The student exposed to his instruction will long remember his organized but hectic clinics, his sincerity, his ever explor- ing right hand. Robby looks down his list as he gets ready to fire another one at the Juniors. Most of the teaching in the third and fourth years took this question and answer form, but Robl)y didn ' t always ask all the questions. 1 22 Half the diagnoses made by the students were wrong at first, but they soon came to coincide with Dr. Shapiro. Pete gives Fullilove and Evans a quick look at some fluorescence as the scalp ringworm glows under the ultraviolet light. Dr. Shapiro expounds on the primary lesion secondary lesions, and other tidbits of informa lion concerning this particular patient. Robby at his best . . . discussing a lesion on the patient. A r ' OHjK ' 123 OPHTHALMOLOGY F. EDWIN KNOWLES, JR., M.D. Assistant Professor ot Ophthalmology and Chairman of The Department Since leaving Boonton, N. J., Dr. Knowles has adhered to the Free State. Following Col- lege Park, he moved to the School of Medicine, was graduated in ' 35, interned at Mercy; later was resident at Baltimore Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat. He now divides his time among prac- tice, teaching, clinics, wife and three sons. He aims, via a limited exposure, to teach students the use of instruments, to acquaint them thoroughly with the normal eye, to demonstrate common ocular pathology, to encourage com- petent observation; learn what they can and cannot do, ready them for general medicine. The slit-lamp, although an esoteric instrument of the opthalmologist, was demonstrated to, and used by, the stu- dents in the clinic. Dr. Osazewski first lines up the patient and then gives Venrose a look while Watson, Young and York wait their turn. 124 Harv Wheelwright escorts a new pa-- tient to her chair where the history- taking and examination will take place.

KILBY, M.D. Professor ot Roentgenology and Head of The Department A graduate of the University of Virginia (1933), Dr. Kilby ob- tained his radiology training at the same institution after intern- ship at Cincinnati General. In 1936, he migrated to Baltimore, has been associated with the University since, excluding a four year Army-conducted Pacific tour. This bachelor from Wood- ville, Virginia is a good golfer, gets to the links whenever pos- sible. Dr. Uana, at Mercy, gave the Medical and Surgical sections X-ray lectures on bone, — nothing but bone. Johnson, Hopkins, Gates, and Lamlj show interest as Dr. DeCarlos demonstrates the technique of taking an Xray. On the X-ray section at City Hospitals Feski, Greco, and Grubb discover that they can find things on a X-ray if they hunt long enough. 126 ORGANIZATIONS As night settles down on the Medical School and the floodlights spring to life on the one- sixth acre campus all students are not at home or in their rooms studying. They may be enjoy- ing the fruits of membership in one or more of the various extra-curricular societies which grow and have their being in the various byways of the city of Baltimore. Not all the extra-curricu- lar societies are organized, but there are four Greek letter fraternities, one being honorary, and one religious society. 127 ALPHA OMEGA ALPHA " To be worthy to serve the suffering " Alpha Omega Alpha is a non-secret Medical Honor Society which was founded at the Uni- versity o£ Illinois College of Medicine in 1902 by William Webster Roo t, M.A. The Society has continually grown since its founding and at the present time there are 61 chapters in Med- ical Schools throughout the United States and Canada. In December 1949 the Beta Chapter of Maryland was installed at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The aims of the Society are the promotion of Scholarship and research in medical schools, the encouragement of a high standard of character and conduct among medical students and gradu- ates, and the recognition of high attainment in medical science of practice and related fields. The spirit of the Society is set forth in its motto ' and in a modern interpretation of the Hippocratic Oath. It is the duty of members to promote its ideals, to foster the scientific and philosophical features of the medical profession, to look beyond self to the welfare of the profes- sion and of the public, to cultivate social mind- edness as well as an individualistic attitude to- ward responsibilities, to show respect for col- leagues, and in all ways to strive to enrich and ennoble the profession of medicine. The most prominent requisite of membership is high scholarship in a broad sense — scholarship that is more than a record of high average grades and facility in memorizing information. It con- notes continuous industry, effectiveness in meth- ods of work, facility in correlating facts and an intellectual grasp that permits application to new problems. Election to this society is not only a recognition of accomplishment as a student, but also an insignia of both promise and expectancy of leadership in some phase of medicine after graduation.

The Delta Epsilon Chapter was chartered at the University of Mary- land School of Medicine two years later by a group of young men determined to uphold and maintain the high standards of the original group at Cornell. In addition, the fraternity has attempted to promote a feeling of good fellow- ship and equality among all those embarking upon the medical profession. With this in mind Delti Epsilon has included among its varied activities monthly scientific meetings which are always open to all members of the student body and faculty. The guest speakers at these func- tions are usually faculty members from other schools who are participating in various forms of research. In this way the students are not only given a chance to attain a broader and more intelligent outlook on the current prob- lems in medicine, but are also able to meet their colleagues and professors on a social level. These meetings have been responsible for the establish- ment of many bonds of fellowship and friend- ship which have lasted far beyond the under- graduate years. Phi Delta Epsilon through its national organi- zation has also established an annual lecture- ship at the University of Maryland at which time some renowned authority in the world of medicine is invited to speak on a current topic of importance. One of the major accomplishments of Delta Epsilon this year was the successful completion of a thorough plastic job on the fraternity house. The house was completely remodeled and re- decorated through the tireless efforts of all fraters who showed their ingenuity when they set aside their medical books and instruments and became carpenters, electricians, and painters.

The very able Dr. Harvey Beck exerted the initial effort and it was under his leadership that Zeta was estab- lished as a chartered chapter of the national organization. Zeta flourished in the years that followed un- til 1942 when the stresses of World War II caused the chapter to pass into temporary obliv- ion. The organization which had come to be known as " the fraternity " remained inactive un- til after the cessation of hostilities had been declared. In October 1947, Dr. Eduard Uhlenhuth, Dr. Rodney Shipley, Dr. William Kammer, Dr. Frank Hachtell, and Dr. Friedenwald under the leadership of Dr. William Duffy reorganized Zeta Chapter at the University of Maryland. Messrs. William Shea, Harry Knipp, James Mac- Donald, and Raymond Clernmens were the first men to be initiated into the chapter after its revival. Little more than four years has passed since Zeta was reborn and at present her active mem- bership numbers fifty-two. Club rooms are now occupied by the Phi Bets at 519 West Lombard Street, where a program of events were scheduled throughout the year for the purpose of advancement of the medical profession by aiding in the production of better physicians.

The fraternity has 42 chapters and a membership of over 25,000. Beta Alpha Chapter was chart- ered in 1904. It has 589 active members and alumni. A house is maintained, located at 922 St. Paul Street. In fulfilling the stated purposes of the fraternity. Beta Alpha has had an active and successful year. Two smokers were held in October to orient and acquaint Freshmen with fellow students and instructors. Each month guest lecturers were invited. Dr. John Savage addressed the group on " History of the Medical School, " Dr. Milton Sacks on " Acquired Hemoly- tic Jaundice, ' ' Dr. Harry Hull " Surgery of the Traumatic Abdomen, " Dr. Ernest Cornbrooks " Contraception, " Dr. Otto Brantigan " Surgical Aspects of Mitral Stenosis, " and others. Socially the chapter had an active year. At the Annual Christmas Party eight orphans were entertained at dinner and gift exchange. Planned affairs were the Sadie Hawkins Dance in Octo- ber, an informal dance in March, and the An- nual Spring Formal held in April at the Staf- ford Hotel. At the Annual Alumni Banquet, Dr. Jacob W. Bird talked on " General Prac- tice. " Dr. Charles Reid Edwards, President of the Nu Sigma Nu Alumni Association, was toast- master. First row: J. V. Brannon, J. B. Gates, F. J. Hatem. E. B.

' THE CHRISTIAN MEDICAL SOCIETY The Christian Medical Society is a nation- wide interdenominational organization of Chris- tian medical students and doctors with a two- fold aim: (1) to gain fellowship with other Chris- tians in the profession through Bible study and prayer, and (2) to present the Christian message to the profession at large. The national organization has chapters in twenty-odd medical schools throughout the country, of which the University of Maryland is but one. The local group was organized six years ago, and began by holding monthly din- ner meetings. These have since been replaced by weekly Bible studies which are held in the student lounge of the Gray laboratory Building from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. each Thursday afternoon plus a monthly get-together at the home of a local physician on Sunday afternoon. Actual membership in the society is limited to medical students and physicians, but those in allied fields may hold associate memberships. The meetings have been attended by dental stu- dents, and nurses, as well as medical students and interns. The weekly meetings take the form of a dis- cussion-group on some portion of the Bible; the Bible study being led by doctors, and promi- nent businessmen as well as ministers. The last part of the meeting is given over to an open discussion in which everyone is free to join. Students of all faiths and denominations are welcome. Doctrinally, the organization be- lieves the Bible to be the inspired Word of God (H Timothy 3:16) and seeks to present Christ as the Son of God and a Saviour from sin to those who accept Him (John 1:12).

Their life for four years is mainly concerned with the hours spent in class and on the books, but there are the other phases of a student ' s life which are just as much a part of going to medical school. Dances, card games, reading magazines in the library, eating lunch in a hurry in odd places — such things are also medical school remem- brances. 137 DANCES Not everyone danced. Kindt and King spent their time toasting everyone including the photographer, while Sipple and Bossard relaxed with their spouses. Perilla, Dunnagan and their cohorts seem pleased with things in the picture above. This table-full looks as if the carefree spirit is setting in. When the dancing began BIG MAC was able to keep his face toward the photographer. The louder the band played, the louder the conversation became. Visiting with couples at other tables was a favorite past- time. CARDS Hatem, Gates, Lamb and Rombro form a familiar foursome. Sometimes more kibitzers than players. At lunch time each class could be divided into two groups — the avid bridge players and the non-enthusi- asts. Whether at Mercy or University, the bridge players could be foimd each noon busily attempting to initiate ulcers by forcing unchewed hotdogs into stomachs made more hypertonic with each round of biding. LIBRARY Bell looks professional while Arthur checks on the Thibierge-Weissenbach syndrome. Two opinions, both backed with references, provoke a discussion between Barthel and Buell, while Bossard and Birelv listen in. Under the bust of J. M. H. Rowland. M.D., Dean Emeritus students toil in the search for knowledge, as they have done in Davidge Hall for generations. In the stacks Agar and Arthur poke through the dust to find the desired volume. LUNCH I ' at Gallaliir typilics the nicii sliiilcnl ' s atrocious eating hal)its while studying. Bag lunches could he. and were, eaten on the stairway. The Juniors on BCH section grab theirs at a local drugstore, lietween-class coffee in local restaurants contributed to tardiness. Bag lunches loukl he. jnil were, eaiell on the suirwav. The noon time crush at restaurants was fast, furious, and deafening. OFFSPRING EXTRAS Indulging in their daily exercise Johnson, Tobias and York help Sniool with the body English on the pinhall machine. A break in class gives I.amb and Udcl time for a coke anil a war story from Willie Shea. McGrady checks facts; he has heard this before. There actually is such a place — the TB sani- torium for medical students near Pau, France — to which Ed Nygrcn channeled our contribu- tions during the sophomore and junior years. On the page opposite are some of the accomplishments of which the class of 1951 feels justifiably proud. We also feel that inasmuch as our class is probably the most prolific on record at this school the fact is worthy of presentation. These children are thirty-six out of the more than forty in the class. Top row. David and Chris Tobias, Jane Barker Beardsley, Jay Sutton, Stuart Rombro, Eric Lister. Second rozv. Eric C.

THE SCHOOL OF NURSING The University of Maryland School of Nursing was founded in 1889 by Louisa Parsons who received her training and the privilege of using the point d ' esprit cap as the graduate cap for her first school of nursing from Florence Nightingale. This school and St. Thomas ' Hos- pital in London, England are the only two in the world so honored with this distinction. Also traditional in this school are the black shoes and stockings which have been retained by student vote year after year. Two basic programs of study have been offered in the school since 1924: The combined Arts and Sciences and Nursing course in which the first two years are spent in the College of Arts and Sciences at Col- lege Park and the remaining three at the School of Nursing; and the basic three year nursing course which is also given at the Baltim ore school. All students receive their clinical experience at the University Hospital. FLORENCE MEDA GIPE, R.N., M.S.

MARCH 1951 DOROTHY COCHEL CALAFIORE Baltimore, Maryland Secretary of Class ' 48 ' 51, Student Council Representative ' 48- ' 49 " Cali, " one of the most likely to succeed, was once a private secretary but left this field to enter training. Winning scholastic awards in her first and second years is only one of the reasons we feel that success will be hers, for " Cali " has a determination that radiates to all those around her. Outside interests include music, hiking, and we understand that this gal is quite a skier, too. Public health holds " Call ' s " interests for the fu- ture and after securing some experience in this field she intends to further her education by at- tending Columbia University to receive her de- gree in public health. MARIAN LOUISE CARSON Catonsville, Maryland Treasurer of Class ' 48- ' 51, Student Council Representative ' 50- a I Marian will always be remembered to us by her easy going personality and that outstanding " giggle " which echoes wherever she might be. Always ready for a good time and never satisfied to rest is characteristic of Marian. Her main inter- ests are finding time to go home and taking an oc- casional glance into the latest itiagazines. Marian finds that obstetrics is her favorite phase of nursing and speaking of obstetrics, will she ever forget a certain BOA on 6AC? Her future plans include industrial nursing in Baltimore and Marian will begin by obtaining a psychiatric backgiound at Spring Grove Hospital. PATRICIA DOWNEY FRISA Washington, D. C. President of Class ' 48- ' 51 B.S. in Nursing Although Pat has temporarily resided in Balti- more tor three years she has made sure Washing- ton, D. C. wouldn ' t forget her by frequent visits home. But how (inild they forget this tall hazel- eyed girl who is undoubtedly one of the reasons for the often quoted statement that " Gentlemen prefer blondes. " A willing worker, Pat is always in there pitching for every class project. Pre- nursing at College Park preceded her entrance to UH and it was while here that she found obstetrics to be her favorite phase of nursing. -Spare time is spent knitting and writing to Bob, who during this past Christmas season placed a ring on the fourth finger, left hand. DORIS JEAN HUDGINS Baltimore, Maryland Treasurer of Student Government ' 50 " 5I, Student Council Representative ' 49- ' 50 If you ever need any pointers concerning night duty or pediatrics ask Doris, for she has spent a large portion of her time in training on one or the other, notably night duty. " Hudge, " as we all know her, is quiet, sincere, poised, and well liked by all. That punctuality is one of " Hudge ' s " out- standing attributes will never be forgotten. Her leisure time is spent listening to the radio, crochet- ing, and writing to Tommy. " Hudge " intends to continue her education after graduation by attend- ing seminary with her husband to be, a ministerial student. ELLEN DORTHEA LANG Baltimore, Maryland It has been somewhat difficult for us to become acquainted with Ellen as every spare minute she has is spent at her home in Baltimore. But when Ellen is around, she shows us her quiet, carefree attitude which seldom changes. Her interests in- clude music, participating in all types of sports, and visiting her other home in the country for she is a lover of outdoor life. Ellen has particularly enjoyed working in pediatrics and in the nursery, and it is to this field of nursing that she will re- turn after taking a long vacation. ALICE PEARL PRITCHETT Pasadena, Maryland Fun-loving, carefree " Pritch, " who hails from Pasadena, Maryland, can usually be seen sitting on the sixth floor using the services of the Chesapeake and Potomac. When not talking on the phone, she spends her leisure time reading Freud, loafing and discussing the opposite sex, the latter being her main interest. Future plans include maintaining her own apartment and a position as head nurse on a medical ward in a small hospital. Her philos- ophy of life is, " We only live to do the things we said we never would do. " LAURA LEE WITTE Baltimore, Maryland Vice-prcsidcnl of Class ' 48 ' 5I Laura, a tall, curly-hcadcd brunette, can fre- quently be seen at our switchboard inquiring for tlie number of calls that she has had. With a pleasing personality she is full of life and when not " resting " is always ready for a good time. Laura ' s hobbies and interests vary from collecting black suede shoes to crocheting and knitting. Al- though we have never seen an end product of her knitting we are sine that she has hidden talent for tliis. Working in the accitlent room was one of the most interesting places lor Laura but fu- ture jjlans aie at present indefinite. PAULINE NAEGELE ZELLER Pasadena, Maryland Social Cominiltefe Representative ' 49- ' 50 Pauline may be the smallest member of our class, but her size does not seem to hamper her in any way. Full of life, zest and ambition, Naegele is always on the go doing little things here and little things there. Her cheerful attitude will never be forgotten by the members of the medical staff and also by her classmates. Pauline used to spend her time reading, listening to detective stories, and taking part in sports; but since September 23 she has been going home to her husband Stan. Ob- stetrical nursing is included in Pauline ' s future plans, as well as keeping house for Stan. SEPTEMBER 1951 JOYCE ANITA BLADES Baltimore, Maryland It may be " nice to have a man around the house " who holds his own with wrench and pliers, but " we ' ll get by as long as we have Bladsie. " Added to her amazing touch with bulbs, sockets and plugs, here is a gal who puts " The Angler " himself to shame. She is always ready for an evening with the musical greats or a midnight ses- sion with the " much-a-do " set. She plans to specialize in surgery and someday quench the thirst for travel in " far away places. " MARIAN KATHRYN BOLAND Baltimore, Maryland Upon meeting Marian, one is impressed with an exceedingly neat brunette with a twinkle in her eye. She is especially noted for her capability and her frank and outspoken manner tells the world just how she feels about the topic of the moment. She can often be found sewing busily away on one of her attractive fashion creations. Her artistic tal- ents also extend to the " brush and easel, " and the few of us who know of this talent have seen many of her sketchings in the making. She has shown a great interest in pediatrics, and although indefinite, future plans are to obtain a responsible position that pays well. MARY ANNA BRISLIN Highfield, Maryland " Bris " ' — always to be remembered for that in- imitable sense of humor and those unexpected dry witty remarks that have sent us into gales of laughter many times. She enjoys music and is happiest when dancing to music that is on the mellow side — likes to " cut a rug, " too. Reading and home decorating interest " Bris " and along this line her hobbies are composed of collecting china and crystal. She has liked all phases of training, but particularly pediatrics, with emphasis on child development and care. Future plans for " Bris " are to continue nursing and take a trip down the aisle with Bill. MARY JUANITA BUCKNER Baltimore, Maryland Spring came early in March, 1950 and with it came " Bucky " from South Baltimore General Hos- pital to adapt herself with ease to UH — even with- standing a Stat appendectomy — to soon become a permanent member of our class. Full of fun and life " Bucky " can be seen rushing around hither and yon but when she returns to her room there is quiet as she relaxes to the music of Romberg that she loves. Her first love, the O.R., opens the path of her future as she plans to return to South Baltimore to work in this field. CARMEN MARIE CAPLE Lake George, New York Treasurer of Class ' 50- ' 51 Our Carmen, dancing with roses in her cheeks, sparkling Irish bhie eyes, and a boisterous laugh, lights her way into the hearts of all she meets. Carmen ' s greatest enjoyments are sleeping, eating and getting numerous phone calls from that man in her life, Al. Going to the country and talking about the beautiful inviting shores of Lake George keeps her busy in her spare moments. The O.R. holds Carmen ' s interest in the nursing field but her future includes one of the biggest steps of 11 — marriage with Al and a home of her own. MARY LOU CHAPMAN Baltimore, Maryland Mary Lou has been home again for here she comes with a suitcase in each hand. It seems as though this Baltimore gal is always busy, for if she is not coming or going home, she is making a dash for the latest cinema or busily clicking away with her knitting needles. Participating in many class activities Mary Lou has helped to make many a dance successful through her work on the refresh- ment committee. She is unique in that her favor- ite phase of training is bedside nursing. It is to this field that our understanding Mary Lou will aim after receiving that coveted R.N. JOANNE CLARK Chevy Chase, Maryland Chairman of Social Coimniltcc rjOTil. Social Committee Representative g- ' SO, Student Council Representative •48- ' 49 " Today our life anew will grow. " That ' s " Clarkie, " for each day is her individual challenge and is done so with a most winning manner and a mephistophelean glint in her eye. Be cool of mind and cjuick of wit is our " pixie " with the addi- tion of any and all Dixieland records on the mar- ket. Joanne became a star the night that her musical talent was made known with her rendi- tion of " The Preacher and the Bear. " Always a willing worker for this and that committee, she will blightfully aim for her B.S., adding another vivacious beauty to the campus of College Park. Then " Clarkie " plans to return to her beloved Illinois. DANA LOU DAY Mt. Airy, Maryland Student Council Representative ' 49 ' 50 Take a pleasing personality and a girl always ready, willing, and able to help when she is needed and you have Dana. A gal who likes to sleep and does it well, Dana is well known to all of us as a staunch supporter of self expression — ask any- one on the seventh floor of the Nurses ' Home. In- terested in sports, she has proven her worth on our basketball team many times. Following two years of College Park she entered our nursing school to discover a love for " knives and clamps " in the O.R., although public health will probably claim her after she graduates and obtains her B.S. CLARA BYERLY EVANS Pikesville, Maryland Upon meeting this blue-eyed " Honey " an im- pression of an easy going girl with high ideals and willing ways will greet you. Often forgetful of appointments and frequently dashing in to class just a few minutes late, " Honey " did keep one ap- pointment on October 17, 1950 when she changed her name and gave her heart to the medical pro- fession. Continuing her career which was started at Washington College, Chestertown, Maryland, " Honey " is interested in public health nursing and has plans to complete work for her B.S. However, making a home for " Toppy " is foremost in her future plans. IRENE CHAMBARLIS EWING Baltimore, Maryland Laughing eyes, a ready smile, and an expression of wonderment — blightfully describes Irene, one of our Baltimore girls. The bridal procession from our class added Irene ' s name to its growing list on October 28 when she and Clint permanently " tied the knot. " Cooking for her hubby and keeping up her interests in books, medicine, and the ocean occupies most of her spare time. During these three years Irene has found her interests predomi- nating in surgical and obstetrical nursing, although following graduation she will probably turn to the field of public health. SARA BEATTY FLECK Fort Howard, Maryland Our starry-eyed smiling girl came flying in on a moonbeam to add cheer to UH. During her three years Sara has helped on dance committees and participated in the Glee Club. Her spare time is spent swimming or flying with the pilot of her dreams. Seems the pilot took her on as co-pilot on October H, 1950, their wedding day. Sara may do general duty with the V,-V or pediatric nursing for awhile — then devote all of her time to Ted and their home. PEGGY JUNE FEISER Hagerstown, Maryland Treasurer of Newman Club ' 50- ' 5I The proof that good things come in small pack- ages is witnessed by our " Perpetual Peg. " Ve ' ll never forget those nights of her Charleston prac- tice and gay harmony with shower accompaniment. Peg ' s interest in singing extends to the Glee Club and spare time is occupied with reading poetry. She entered training with the same vim, vigor, and vitality of any six footer but those who know her will appreciate the somber moments as well. After graduation Peg will attempt to search out the baffling mysteries of neuro-surgery and plans to do post-graduate work in that field. EDITH FREDERICK Canal Zone, Panama B.S. in Nursing Edith, better known to us as " Freddie, " is one of the quieter and more reserved members of our class. Preceding her entrance to UH she spent two years at College Park in pre-nursing. Seldom seen around the nurses ' home, " Freddie " spends most of her spare time out of doors experimenting with nature. Interests are varied — bird watching, collecting fish, photography, and music are but a few. " Freddie " can always be seen bustling around here and there while on duty and just takes a moment to stop before she is off again. Plans for the future are in the field of mental health work- ing with maladjusted children. BETTYANN AUDREY GILLARD Washington, D. C. B.S. in Nursing The old adage " Beautiful but dumb " goes out the window when one meets Bettyann. An all- around girl she enjoys a good time but consistent- ly maintains a high scholastic standing as proven by her receiving scholarship awards in her first and second years. Knitting is one of her favorite hobbies and those clicking needles turn out one sweater after another. In addition, Bettyann also manages to find time for an interest in sports. Having completed two years of pre-nursing at Col- lege Park Bettyann is now planning post-graduate study. WANDA GREGORIUS Baltimore, Maryland Corresponding Secretary of Newman Club ' 50- ' 51 Poetry and music, particularly the works of Browning and C hopin, ap])eal to Wanda who is dee]:)ly interested in the esthetic attributes of life. Before entering the jjortals of our school she at- tended the Empire Mannequin School in New York so it is easy to understand why the latest fashions are a topic of interest with her. Psychology has appealed to Wanda more than any other sub- ject and as a consccjuence her affiliation at Chest- nut Lodge in psychiatry finthered this interest con- siderably. Far away places attract her and after graduation AVanda woidd like to travel abroatl in the coiusc of her career, conditions permitting, to such countries as England and Switzerland. SHIRLEY ANNE HACKENBERG Washington, D. C. " Hackie, " unofficial class artist and poet, has al- ways been ready to lend a skilled and helping hand with her works of arts for various class projects. She has a decidedly cheerful philosophy and an incom- parable sense of humor all her own. " Hackie " loves to crack jokes — " my funny bone is perpetually tickled. " Her rendition of the " Legend of Tiabe, " the original Gypsy Rose Indian in resplendent regalia at our dances is something rare to behold, indeed. In addition to her artistic inclinations " Hackie " loves good music, steaks, men six feet and over, and enjoys swimming. She hopes soon to be off to Florida to specialize in O.R. or obstetrical nursing. MARGARET MURRAY HEAD Petersburg, West Virginia " A little work, a ' little play " is characteristic of Marg, petite and blonde with very expressive brown eyes. She has certain peculiarities such as liking to walk in the rain, enjoying weekends on the bay, and sleeping late. Her profession is what Marg takes seriously and the ability to meet and cope with any situation with calmness and self-confidence are qualities shown foremost in her nursing. Per- haps this is why the O.R. and accident room have appealed to her most of all. Marg ' s future plans, still indefinite, include the probability of the Naval Nurse Corps. aH;f«» " 5»w,K K ?5!S 7H MARGARET CRUMBAUGH HIGGINS Cabin John, Maryland President of Newman Club ' 50- ' 51 Smiling brown eyes under a changing coiffure is our Marg. Interior decorating holds the spot- light for Marg ' s hobby and certainly lends a help- ing hand to our new homemaker classmate who took that important step during the blusterous month of March. Knitting needles clicking into the wee hours have often been heard from Marg ' s room — hand knit sweaters are quite the thing. During her training Marg seems to have enjoyed all phases of it so plans to do private duty awhile after graduation before settling down to a full time job of homemaking. DOROTHY ELENORE HUCKSOLL Baltimore, Maryland Our sctoiui tlaiin to a " South Baltimore nurse " is blue-eyed and dimple-cheeked Dorothy. Work- ing efficiently and earnestly on dance committees and many class activities she has proven to be a very valuable addition to our class since her ar- rival in March 1950. An ardent swimming fan, Dot is usually seen on her way to the nearest swim- ming pool during the summer months to indulge in the sport and to acquire one of the most enviable tans. Watch her for a future in obstetrics after her dreams for a B.S. from College Park come true. SARA JANE KELLY Westernport, Maryland Treasurer of Class ' 48- ' 49, Social Committee Representative •49- 50 As Irish as Kelly green on St. Patrick ' s Day is our Janie. She is a happy go lucky girl with lots of pep that keeps her constantly on the go. Those who live near Janie in the Nurses ' Home know of this vitality that she possesses, especially when they are attempting to sleep during the clay. But her carefree manner makes it impossible for them to become perturbed for it ' s always passed off with a smile and " Kelly — again! " Music, whether danc- ing or listening to records, is one of Janie ' s biggest interests. Post-graduate study in surgery, which has appealed to her most, is in her future plans. CAROLYN CADLE LOWER Emmittsburg, Maryland Vice-President of Class ' 49 TiO Tall, blonde, lanky " Tootie " has amazed us all with her " garter belt ballet " and her rendition and ruination of current song hits. Following her col- lege days at St. Joseph ' s, " Tootie " entered UH to bless our midst with her special sense of humor. " Crazy Rhythm " just about describes the pace at which she exists and " Tootie " will be going at quite a tempo to learn all the little essentials neces- sary to make a successful marriage; for in a quiet wedding ceremony at home on February 2, she changed the Miss to Mrs. After graduation " Tootie " will settle down to general duty and life with Bill in a fruit tree and raising little Johnny Appleseeds. LORRAINE LYSACK Shamoken, Pennsylvania Secretary of Class ' 50- ' 51 Here ' s our " Jack of all Trades. " Lorraine is an accomplished seamstress and a standing member of the needle and yarn club. She is interested in music and the culinary arts and will some day make a tapable homemaker. Lorraine and her dependa- bility go hand in hand for she is an avid supporter of all class projects. Right now her nursing talents turn toward the obstetrical service although she plans to acquire her B.S. degree before entering the field. In her social life, as well as on duty, her warm smile is a reminder to all of us that, " Laugh and the world laughs with you, " is still the reigning attribute. GARY BRUTON McCURDY Baltimore, Maryland Gary, liked by one and all, knows when to say the right thing at the proper time to make one feel good. Her favorite extra-curricular activity seemed to be helping to plan for our dances and en- tertaining at them with her guitar and harmonica. Under a rose covered arbor Gary and Gleve said their " I do ' s " on a beautiful day in late August. Being a student and housewife at the same time, Gary still manages to find time for hiking, horse- back riding, and dabbling in photography. Her nursing career has been more interesting because of psychiatry and pediatrics and it is in one of these fields that she will specialize after graduation. MAXINE McGRAW Meadow Bridge, West Virginia Dark hair with lots of curls around a face that wears a perpetual smile is the picture of " Mac. " She, is one of the more domestic members of our class and all of her spare time is spent knitting or embroidering when not talking longingly about the hills of West Virginia. " Mac " loves children so is it any wonder she enjoyed pediatrics and obstetrics so much. There is no place like home to " Mac " , and after state boards and that R.N. come through she will no longer have to dream of awakening some morning and finding herself in Meadow Bridge for she will be home at last. JEANNE HOOK MIECZNIKOSKI Fort Howard, Maryland Vice-President of Class ' 50- ' 51 Taking long walks in the rain is a favorite pas- time with Jeanne so in early February of this year amidst a shower of rice she took another walk — down the aisle of matrimony to become " Mrs. Mike. " Fun-loving Jeanne likes to dance and her abounding energy amazes all but those that know her more intimately are acquainted with her de- termination and loyalty to support what she be- lieves is right. Neurosurgery and obstetrics have appealed to Jeanne very much but future plans include making a home for Mike, so her latter in- terest will be foremost as she hopes someday to have — twins! NORMA MARILYN MILLER Forest Hill, Maryland Marilyn ' s a quiet one but one senses that she is a steady and understanding person with her sin- cerity and warm smile that would quiet any • troubled soul. Activities have included the Glee Club and committees for dances, parties, and teas; for she is always to be counted upon for coopera- tion. The O.R., accident room, and nursery have been favorites with her but Marilyn plans to work in a country M.D. ' s office. Sometime in the not too distant future she will be living on a farm sur- rounded by a big family, a couple of dogs and horses, and tending to her rose garden. Then all her dreams will have come true. ROSEMARY MORGAN Oakton, Virginia President of Class ' SO- ' 51 Four score and some odd years ago, our Confed- erate fathers waved the flag above the land of cot- ton. The cotton, since then, has taken on slight meconial characteristics, but the flag ' s still waving and our " Morgie ' s " the chief mainstay. Holding true to her anccstory, she is a capable leader and extends her winning, southern charm to all about her. She is interested in needlework, sports, work- ing on dance committees, and a certain Yankee named Dave. Rosemary will specialize in obstetrics after graduation and continue to spread southern hospitality throughout the forty-eight states. ELLEN ANN PEREGOY Annapolis, Maryland Aninuilcil (uriosity is aptly applieil to our " Peg " . Three years of " ups and clo ■ns " has never en- croached u[)on her genuinity nor her ai)ility to win friends, because of that same rare quality. " Pef; " is the proverbial outdoor girl and manages to keep up best when not pre-occupied with knitting needles, working on dance committees, or engaged in play- ing canasta. Though presently enthralled with the land of " id and super ego, " next year will find her working for her Bachelor of Science degree at Col- lege Park. DOVE BELLA PILSON Bassett, Virginia Treasurer of Glee Club ' 50- ' 51, Chairman of Canasta Club ■50- ' 51 Dove thought that she was leaving the field of mathematics behind her when she entered our school three years ago. But this talent for figures has often resulted in her being called upon to aptly handle the finances for our projects, particu- larly in her senior year as chairman of yearbook subscriptions. She is also skilled with figures of cloth and her deft ability with thimble and thread has turned out many a student nurse doll for her classmates. Sewing elsewhere interests Dove — suturing and all that goes on behind the portals of our O.R. is in the future as she hopes to follow this field of nursing that fascinates her so. LILLIE FLORA PORTER Baltimore, Maryland Lillie loves to laugh and make new friends and for three years this is exactly what she has been cloiiit;. Her amicability and wide-eyed expression have become synonymous in our minds with this tall iMunette. Often during her spare time she can be seen ice-skating or swirling around the dance floo) to the tempo of the latest melody. Lillie also enjoys reading and nothing appeals to her more tnan hiking trips on cool autumn days. When asked which phase of nursing she enjoys the most Lillie will often reply, " All of it! " so that her future tends toward general duty. PATRICIA LEE PYLES Myersville, Maryland Look for a piano and one is certain to find Pat playing for a crowd of singing girls. Her expert ac- companiment at the ivory keyboard has brightened many of our dances, too. Eating and sleeping have become hobbies with Pat, but it only natural for everyone in our class has developed them fully in these three years. P;it ' s nuisic.d inclinations extend even to her laugh — a giggle that goes right on up the scale. Speaking of scales, her favorite phase of training is night duty in the delivery room and future nursing will perhaps be in this field. ELIZABETH ANN RAY Baltimore, Maryland Secretary of Class ' 48 ' 50. Student Council Representative ' 50- T. I Betty Ann is a girl who never lets anything get her down. She is always smiling and has spread her good cheer throughout these three years. That broad grin and infectious laugh have even pre- vailed through some of those hectic nights of relief. An overabundant supply of energy has kept our redheaded lass busy for she has always had a hand in all our activities. Painting and singing are the loves of her life and the residents of the fourth floor have enjoyed many a serenade, unknown to her. Pediatrics rates high with Betty Ann, but she will be aiming for that B.S. at College Park after graduation. EVELYN BAXTER ROBERSTON Hagerstown, Maryland Vice-President of Student Government ' 49- ' 50 Expressive dark eyes that can convey deep mider- standing or shine with merriment and laughter will stand out in our memory book as we turn to " Robbie. " Serious-minded, she is a girl with determination who knows what she wants and is endowed with a sense of humor that can be count- ed upon to come to the rescue of others in a per- plexing situation. Always on the go, Robbie en- joys sports, music, and dramatics; having taken an active part in the Glee Club, basketball, dance and poster committees. Excelling in pediatrics and obstetrics, her plans for the future will include a nursery of her own. ELLEN RUTH SCHUSTER Baltimore, Maryland " Shoo, " a typical hyperthyroid although un- diagnosed, is active in anything and everything. Her interests are many and varied— from vacation- ing and celebrating anything at all to knitting and thinking of the " men of the hour. " The buzzer is always ringing for " Shoo " and she makes many trips to and from the phone. Obstetrics, particu- larly the delivery room, is the field of nursing best liked. Although this is the type of nursing " Shoo " will follow after graduation, she enjoyed her affilia- tion at S.E.P.H. and the surroundings. Besides obstetrical nursing future plans include settling down, if possible, for our very active classmate. SHIRLEY MAY SHAFER Mount Union, Pennsylvania Hailing from the only place in the world — Pennsylvania — Shirley came to us from South Baltimore General Hospital in March of last year. Quickly and quietly she won many lasting friends. Beautiful clothes are her hobby and she is one of the fashion plates of our class. Dancing and good music are among her treasured joys. Dancing gaily throughout the days she plans for the future flame of her interest — psychiatric nursing — by working at the Sheppard Enoch Pratt Hospital for awhile and then — who knows? MARGARET LETCHER SHOVVELL Groom, Maryland President of Student Government ' DO ' Sl B.S. in Nursing With a twinkle in her eye and a laugh in her voice, auburn tressed, brown-eyed Maggie has proven to us that she is quite a girl. Her dry wit and winning manner cannot be excelled, partic- ularly when she is entertaining others. Will we ever forget the topper-girl get-up and " The Lion ' s Cage? " Two years of pre-nursing at College Park preceded Maggie ' s entrance into the halls of UH where she found the O.R. the best liked phase of her training. Marriage is included in her future plans, too. Anywhere and anyplace Maggie goes from here she will be a success for she is what we call " people. " DORIS MARIE STEVENS Riderwood, Maryland Social Committee Representative and Secretary ' 48- ' 50, Social Committee Chairman ' 49- ' 50 " Stevie, " our tall and well-poised blonde, radiates a feeling ot warmth and simplicity. Her capacity for human understanding has made her a sincere advocate of democracy and romance, which is the essence of her life. Greatly interested in dress designing, cooking, and interior decorating she finds enjoyment in the domestic side of life. " Stevie " also manages to find time for class proj- ects. Her cooperation and dependability in these activities, as well as in her nursing, always rates high. In addition, collecting pearls of wisdom is a hobby she thoroughly enjoys. Her favorite phase of nursing is psychiatry and future nursing may be in this field. MARY JEAN STROHECKER Shamoken, Pennsylvania Mary Jean with her dancing brown eyes has a winning smile that radiates with a sparkling person- ality. Her love of life is always in evidence through that very infectious laugh. Knitting and sewing constitute her spare time interests and she is the envy of her less domesticated classmates for as a result many of her own creations adorn her ward- robe. Crazy about " kids ' , " Mary Jean will take on the " art of baby sitting " in pediatrics after she has received her " Flossie. " BEVERLY HOXIE TETHER Hartford, Connecticut This blonde New England lass, with her well Icnown grin, spends her off duty hours listening to the music of Beethoven and Wagner and enjoys reading literary classics. When not engaged in these artistic pursuits " Lynn " fairly floats on air dancing to music that is " sweet and mellow. " On March 23 the dental school became a permanent part of her life as she walked down the aisle to Jet. Pediatrics is her favorite phase of nursing and she intends to continue in this field following graduation with the hopes of achieving some financial success. EVELYN CAVER VENESKY Myersville, Maryland They say " Gentlemen prefer blondes " and here is one to be preferred. Tall and slender, blonde, blue-eyed " Eb " with the vibrating laughter has long infected us all with her vivacity. She became one of our married clasmates just before the begin- ning of the senior year on September 3 and has since proven that it is possible to combine a career and homemaking successfully. With hubby Dave, " Eb " has chosen a family as her future goal. Ideally enough she liked pediatrics when in training. Music, poetry, and stone collecting occupy her re- maining spare time. JOANNE ALICE WILSON, B.S. Piedmont, West Virginia President of Class ■48- ' 49 How could we ever forget West Virginia with Jo, our terrific little brunette, always ready to re- fresh our memories at any hour of the day or night. Her never ending supply of energy and sense of humor forever ceases to amaze us all and this might be some clue as to why she decided to try her ability in nursing after completing four years at West Virginia University with a B.S. in Business Administration. Music, particularly singing, makes our class Nightingale a natural for the Glee Club. The O.R., will claim our Jo after graduation for this is the field she has looked forward to these three years. HELEN WINNIFRED WINKS Cheverly, Maryland Editor of Terra Mariae Medicus ' 51 (Nurses Section), Secre- tary of Student Government ' 50- ' 51 When our class looked for a leader, a friend, and a willing worker, it was always " Winkie " who affirmatively answered with a winning smile. Gen- eral duty, the accident room, and pediatrics interest her most and it is no wonder she is " tops " in nursing ability for her understanding manner has been foremost even from the beginning. Music, listening and playing the 88 keys, comprises Helen ' s extra-curricular activities with dramatics, literature, and sports holding her interests, too. Originally hailing from Montreal, Canada she loves cold brisk weather — likes night duty, too. After gradua- tion Helen plans to work for the VA in Florida. ROBERTA EVELYN WORTMAN Lapeer, Michigan " Bobbie " came from Lapeer with a smile and friendliness she has always maintained during these three years. Reliability and conscientiousness are two factors which have contributed to her success in being a good nurse. Music is high among " Bobbie ' s " spare time interests. Her zeal for sports places basketball at the top of the list as her height makes her a natural for the game. " Bobbie " plans to continue her education after graduation and next year will find her at the Uni- versity of Michigan or U.C.L.A. JEANNE MARIE ZAHRENDT Baltimore, Maryland President of Class ' 49- ' 50, Chairman of Social Committee of SGA ' 50- ' 51, Social Committee Representative ■48- ' -}9 B.S. in Nursing " Jay " our ever-living classmate, is a girl we will never forget. She loves life and lives at a mad pace, although she has her serious moments, too. An active member of our class, " Jay " has proven her worth as a staunch supporter of many organi- zations. She likes swimming, sailing, sports, parties, and psychology. Her interest in the latter was in- creased during our affiliation in psychiatry at S.E.P.H. Graduating with her B.S., obtained at College Park, " Jay " aspires to the field of psychol- ogy in the future and plans to attain her goal by first securing her M.S. Journey back through time with us to recall memories of the years at University in which we have been learning to become nurses. MEDICAL AND SURGICAL NURSING The story of training in pictures is presented to our friends by the class ol ISI ' il. We hope that through these scenes you may hetter understand us and some of the typical days we spent while in training at University. As preclinicals our study of nursing began in the class- room. Anatomical Hall became a familiar plaic as we delved into the mysteries of the human bodv and it was not long untU wc felt that " Mr. Bones " and liie numerous caduM ' is wc worked with were old friends. It was in tl.e nursing arts lab that we began to study and practice the art and science of nursing. I he labs — chemistry and microbiology — correlated our book learning and as we conducted our experiments the understanding of various principles was made clearer to us. Starting to work on the floors of UH the dav began with the morning report. . s we listened to some of the happenings of the night — admissions from the accident room and stats to the O.R. — we could hardly realize that it would not be too long until we would be the night nurse reporting olf with a similar re- port. .• nd there were beds, beds, and more beds to be made each day. 4 Over and over again — A.M. care seemed to constitute our probie days on the wards. At the same time that we were broadening our knowledge of anatomy, sociology, and psychol- ogy in the classroom we were gaining a good practical founda- tion of life from our patients. The surg cal dressing and our bandage scissors became in.separable as our di.t on the surgical wards came to include the changing of the surgeons handiwork. Charting — the I ane of every nurses life! However, we knew it was part of our duty and accepted it as such although we often wished there was not quite so much of it. After being supervised for the administration of medicines and having succeeded in passing dosage and solutions we found ourselves taking a big step forward in assuming responsibility. We were soon giving medicines — oral, I.M., and I ' RN orders with an accuracy and understanding that sometimes amazed even us. Tradion with its wcigliis and pulleys looketl awesome until we learned the me- thanits of its opera- tion and the impor- tance in orthopedic- nursing for correct body alignment. Orders for C;()j t|. 15 minutes x 4 patients on a busy relief shift was something else to keep us running. At the same time we helped younger stu- dents with nursing |)rocedures and an- swered a multitude of (lucslions. Oxygen tents were somewhat lerrifving in the beginning liut as we became more famil- iar with them and gained conlidentc in our skill we lame to look upon them as vital and life saving to the patient. " That I ' niversity touch " — a soothing back rub. We foimd that TLC (tender loving care) was one of the best medicines that could be given. How many times did this greet us as we came on duty! .Shock position for a bleeding idcer, or perhaps it was a post-op pneumonectomy, or even a neurosurgical patient. I.V. fluicis — sometimes half a dozen sets or more running at the same time. And then there was the inevitable 2 A.M. telephone call to the intern with the story, " They ' re out of the vein! " Caring for a post op tratlieotoniv patient called for competent nursing care. Responsihility rested heavily upon our shoulders with the realization that these patients depended completely upon us for the all important task of maintaining the air-way through suctioning. Wangensteen suction and Levin tubes became synonymous. They were a boon to helping the patient but it was always a blow to us when an uncooperative patient would pull one out and the reinserting began again. We worked at night and slept by day — between classes. Night duty came to each of us in our turn, to some much more frequently. It always presented a challenge but working two wards was often more than a challenge by the time 7 A.M. arrived. But we took everything in our stride for by now this was all in a day ' s or a night ' s work. out-patient department OI ' D provitlcd further clinical experience as well as extending the opportunity for study of community problems. PUBLIC HEALTH A two month affiliation with the Baltimore City Health Department was offered to some, preferably the live year students. One of the quieter moments in the accident room, which is under the supervision of Miss Edith Lillard, B.S.. R.N. We enjoyed our duty there even though some of those Friday and Saturday nights were hectic. OBSTETRICS Obstetrics was an entirely different branch of nursing and a new experience for lis, especially after our days on medical and surgical wards. Flora Streett. R.N., Supervisor of Obstetrical Department. It was in the delivery room that we saw and heard a new life take his first breath and give his first cry. Mother had her first glimpse at the " little bundle of joy " in the delivery room. Father first saw his offspring through the nursery wi ndow. One of ihe more dramatic moments in OB — delivery by Cesarean section. Feeding babies in the nursery was always a happy lime. Mary Klevisher. R.N., head nurse of the delivery room, adding the latest information to the ever changing board. We soon learned that the rooming-in-plan helps moth- er and baby establish com- panionship from an early stage and is psychologically better for both. In addition, mothers learn to care for their babies imder super- vision. OPERATING ROOM It was with mixed feelings that each and everyone of us walked through the doors on the seventh floor marked POSITIVELY NO ADMITTANCE to see and be- come a part of what goes on behind the doors of the O.R. " Setting up " for an operation. We soon discovered that the cir- culating nurse is an important member of the O.R. staff. Elizabeth Aitkenhead, R.N., Super- visor of the Operating Rooms. Wirh phisoderm and brush we began the three minute scrub. After the operations were over tor the day we continued " to scrub " — but along different lines. All the instruments and sutures passed through our hands when we assumed the role of " scrub nurse, " as an integral member of the surgical team. PSYCHIATRY Our psychiatric afTiliations began in our senior year as we packed our l)ags and haggagc to depart for three niontlis to arious |)sychialrit institu- tions. I he majority of us spent our ihiys at SlicppanI and Knoch Pratt Hospital (SKI ' H) in Towson, others affiliated at Chestnut Lodge in Rock- villc. and in April a few ventured to Sykes ille to begin an affiliation with the Springfield State Hospital. For three uionlhs we were engrossed with the intricacies of the human mind as it related to the changes due to func- tional and organic factors. I reatmcnts that we observed and assisted with in- cluded psychotherapy, electric shock, insulin shock, hydrotherapy (continu- ous tubs and cold wet sheet packs), aiul ainytal Cslcep) therapy.

PEDIATRICS Our pediatric training concerned the diseases of chil- dren but the psychological aspec ts of this specialty were also stressed. Thus we learned in theory and practice that each child is different and must be treated as an individual. We hclpcil with inanv ijrocedmes in the treatment room, from lumbar pimctures to exsanguinations of Rh babies, under the direction of Mrs. Catherine Zukor. R. .
