When it was erected medical practice, as we know it today, was still far in the future. The well known contributions of Pasteur and Lister were a half century away. Percussion of the chest was very new and Laennec had not as yet published his famous “De l’ausculdetation Mediate,” wherein he described the use of that useful instrument of his invention, the stethoscope. The foundation stone of this, the original med- ical school building was laid by Colonel John Eager Howard on April the seventh, 1811. Colonel Howard, a local revolutionary war hero and wealthy land owner, sold the land for nine thousand dollars. The building, completed in 1812, was designed by the noted American architect, R. Cary Long. A newspaper account of the day states: “ — the front forms a handsome peristile of eight columns of Grecian Doric in imitation of the pan- theon of Rome. The rotunda has an amphitheater of sixty feet in diameter capable of accommodating one thousand.” The building was described as “located on a hill just beyond the western boundary of the city, commanding a fine view of the harbour and conveniently situated near the Washington Post road.” Cost of the land for the building and its construction was met by public lottery. At that time this was not an uncommon procedure for financing an institution. Interesting though the old building is, except for the medical school within, it would be only another quaint old Baltimore edifice, the work of a once famous architect. For an interesting account of the actual begin- nings of the medical school we turn to the writings of Dr. Nathaniel Potter, one of the co-founders. In an account written in the eighteen thirties he states: “In 1797 I adopted this city (Baltimore) as a permanent residence and became acquainted with the late John Beale Davidge, M.D. He was born in Annapolis in 1768, son of an ex-captain in the British army and Mary Howard of Anne Arun- del county. He had been educated at Edinburgh and Glasgow, where he had devoted himself to the study of anatomy and physiology. We fre- 5 JOHN BEALE DAVIDGE, M.D. quently conferred on the prevailing theories and practice of the day as they were taught and pursued on both sides of the Atlantic. We came to the conclusion that science could not be successfully taught under the usual organization of the medical schools. We saw — that without the aids of physi- ology and pathology associated with anatomy— the philosophy of the body could not be understood. In the winter of 1806, Dr. Davidge began to lecture on obstetrics and anatomy in an anatomical theater that he had erected at his own expense on his own ground. In 1807 — it was discovered by the people that he had introduced a subject for dissection — a mob assembled — -which demolished the house and put a period to all further pro- ceedings for that season. — This disaster activated us to pray the legislature for authority to open a medical college under the guarantee of the state.” In 1807 an act was passed by the legislature establishing The College of Medicine of Maryland and creating a Board of Regents consisting of the Board of Medical Examiners of Maryland together with the president and the professors of the college. The Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Marvland was made patron of the college and its president named chancellor. The original faculty consisted of John B. Dav- idge, M.D., and J. James Cocke M.D., joint pro- fessors of anatomy, surgery, and physiology; George Brown M.D., professor of the practise and theory of medicine; John Shaw M.D., professor of chemistry; Thomas E. Bond M.D., professor of materia medica; and William D. Donaldson M.D., professor of the institutes of medicine. Dr. Brown resigned and Nathaniel Potter M.D. was elected to fill the vacancy. Ten students comprised the first class. Anatomy and chemistry were held in an old abandoned school house on Fayette Street and McClellan’s Alley. The first winter was so cold that cadavers and chemical reagents froze and the professors all contracted pleurisy. The course of the institutes and practice of medicine was held in the ball room of a private residence on Commerce Street. In April 1810 the first public commencement was held and five graduates received degrees. In 1812 the m edical school moved into the building which houses its administration and lecture halls to this day. Also in this year an act was passed by the state legislature creating The Uni- versity of Maryland by engrafting Schools of Di- vinity, Law, and Arts and Sciences upon the exist- ing Medical College. Archbishop John Carroll was chosen first Provost of the University but declined and the Hon. Robert Smith, a former U.S. Secret- ary of State, was elected and accepted the position. Of the various colleges of the new university that of medicine was the only one that flourished during the early years. A Gold Medal was instituted in 1813, to be awarded annually to the student writing the best 6 medical thesis in the Latin language. During the war with England the medical faculty banded to- gether to attend citizens wounded at the Battle of c North Point. Following the war classes began to increase in size. In the years 1824-5 there were at least 300 students, the exact number being unknown even to the Dean. At this time the course of medicine was two years, a Bachelor of Medicine being awarded after completion of 1 year, and Doctor of Medicine degree after completion of the full two years. At the commencement of 1825, held in Chemical Hall, an honorary degree of Doctor of Medicine was conferred upon Ephraim McDowell, the famous ovariotomist from Kentucky. And in 1824 an hon- orary L.L.D. was given to the Marquis de Lafay- ette. By an act of the legislature passed in 1826 the Board of Regents was abolished and a board of twenty-one Trustees was established with the Governor of the state ex officio president of this board. This move was said to have been instigated by certain members of the faculty who were jealous of Drs. Davidge and DeButts. The latter had given series of lectures in their homes which were very popular with the students. Whatever the cause of the act it resulted in 13 years of instability for the medical school during which time the faculty and students bitterly opposed the government of the Trustees. On the second of February, 1828, a duel was fought between two students, Samuel J. Carr of South Carolina and William Bond Martin of Mary- land. The duel followed an argument in which Carr declared that Martin was “no gentleman.” Carr put a pistol ball through Martin’s forehead and Martin died. Following the duel Carr eloped with Davidge’s step-daughter and was temporarily expelled from the university. He left the country for a time, becoming United States Consul to Tan- giers. Later he returned to school, obtained his degree in 1834, then entered the army. After a brief but distinguished medical career he died at old Pikesville Arsenal in 1847. A revolution within the medical school occurred in 1837. This was said to have started when the janitor struck a student for bringing a friend into the university grounds in order to show him an anatomical specimen that he had prepared. Later, Professor Potter objected to this janitor conducting a gambling establishment with the sale of whiskey and brandy to the students between classes. The janitor threatened to thrash the professor who objected to the Board of Trustees. However no action was taken and the janitor continued his dubious activities. The sympathy of the students was with Professor Potter who carried side arms for his protection. The appointment of a new faculty member against the wishes of the faculty caused further ire, culminating on the second of May 1837 with a meeting of the old Board of Regents and certain of the faculty in the Infirmary. At this meeting, they voted themselves independent and decided to hold classes in the Indian Queen Hotel. Most of the students attended these classes; others either transferred to other schools or quit school entirely. A new faculty appointed by the Trustees also held classes, however before an al- most empty Chemical Hall. On the night of September 21 several of the faculty, assisted by a number of the students, obtained keys to the university. They expelled the janitor and occupied the grounds for two days, then decided to resort to legal proceedings rather than force to regain control of the university. In ( Continued on Page 211) 7 ♦ ♦ ♦ The Library . . . The library of Dr. John Crawford, which the medical school purchased from his estate for five hundred dollars in 1813, formed and in a sense still forms the nucleus of the medical library. Dr. Crawford was born in Ireland and received his M.D. from St. Andrews. He served as a ship’s surgeon for the East India Company and then settled in the Barbadoes. Later he practiced in the Dutch colony of Demerara, in Africa. At the age of forty he moved to Holland and received a degree from the University of Leyden. In 1796 he came to Baltimore. Here he quickly developed an extensive medical practice and his fame as a physician spread. He was a close friend of Ben- jamin Rush. In 1800 he introduced smallpox vac- cine to Baltimore. His theory of the “contagium animatium” (that certain diseases were caused by microscopic organisms) was published in 1800 bringing him denounce- ments from the medical leaders. On May 9, 1813 he died and was buried in Westminster cemetery. The library was first located in the old Green Room of the medical building. Here the library went through periods of growth and decay until 1903 when Dr. Eugene Eauntleroy Cordell, the medical historian, was appointed librarian and professor of the history of medicine. In 1913 the library moved to its present location, a former church, renamed Davidge Hall. In 1914 Mrs. Ruth Lee Briscoe was appointed librarian to fill the vacancy left by the death of Cordell the preceding year. It was in Mrs. Briscoe’s administration that the greatest growth and develop- ment of the library occurred. Mrs. I. M. Robinson is the present librarian. In addition to its extensive collection of current medical literature there are two departments of peculiar interest to the university. The Maryland Room contains a collection of books on the history of the medical school and the graduate theses from 1817 to 1886. The Crawford Room contains most of the original collection of Dr. John Craw- ( Continued on Page 111) The Hospital The teaching of clinical medicine and surgery at the university was put on a practical basis when the Baltimore Infirmary was opened on September 20, 1823. The faculty of the Medical College had found that the use of old City Hospital on Broadway was unsatisfactory for teaching purposes due to its great distance from the medical school. By the construction of the Infirmary on the southwest corner of Greene and Lombard Streets, diagonally opposite the medical school, the faculty was one of the first in the country to provide for clinical instruction of its students. The professors paid for the hospital by their own personal effort and financial support, thus were able to devote it ex- clusively to teaching purposes. This was the first hospital for the care of the sick in the state of Maryland. The first building ac- commodated 50 patients and was limited to acute cases. There were four wards of which one was limited to cases in oph- thalmic surgery. Two students who were chosen on the basis of their scholarship lived in resi- dence and paid $300 per annum for their board -and lodging. Ward class- es were held several times a week and students had the privilege of accompanying the physicians on their ward rounds. A large surgical amphi- theater was adjacent to the main hospital building and here surgery and anatomy were taught to large groups of students. Through the years the Baltimore Infirmary prospered and underwent many alterations and additions. After a remodelling in 1880 the name University Hospital first came into use. The present dispensary building is the result of an extensive remodelling program carried out in 1896. The new hospital building at Greene and Red- wood Streets was opened in November of 1934. Since that time the old building on Greene Street has housed the group of clinics of the flourishing Outpatient Department, while the new building houses the acute hospital.

BOYD WYLIE, M.D. Sbean, School „ WeSi, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE BALTIMORE I, MARYLAND OFFICE OF THE DEAN MEMORIES OF THE CUSS OF 19 2 The members of this class have experienced many changes in the curriculum during their four years in Medical School, From the beginning they have manifested mature cooperation with the Administration, and a facility for adjustment to newer methods of teaching. In their participation as student interns they have given an excellent account of themselves. In presenting suggestions for improvement of courses, they have been considerate and helpful, and in this have won the respect of the Faculty, In adapting themselves to a new program for assigning internships, they have proven resource- ful. It has been a pleasure to work with this loyal group of young people, I feel sure we shall hear good things of them as time goes on. Y ith them go ray sincere wishes for success and happiness. 1 1 HMslMC ZJhe Oath I swear by Apollo the physician, by Aesculapius, Hygeia, and Panacea, and 1 take to witness all the gods and all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgement 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 enrolled 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 judgement 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 pre- serve the purity of my life and my art. I will not cut for the stone, even for the patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by the practitioners (specialists in the 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, and 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.

Back row : William Mathews, Scott Wallace. The Class of 1952 is composed of 97 students of which 50 per cent are residents of Maryland and the remainder fairly representative of the rest of the country and Puerto Rico. This is the last class composed predominantly of veterans of World War II (about 75 per cent). The average age is 26 years and more than half (57 per cent) are married. These facts may account for the mature outlook and critical appraisal evident. Leaving specific memories to the individual, this may be said to be an unusally closely-knit class. Each year dances and parties have been held and well-supported. In addition, the class played a leading role this year in organizing opposition to a national intern selection program and in sub- stituting a more rational plan. Lpon matriculation in 1943 the class entered upon its preclinical years. In these two years a firm foundation in the scientific basis of medicine was acquired in dissecting room, laboratory and lecture hall. The last two years have been spent in the hospitals and dispensaries of the city. Here it was learned that medicine is an art as well as a science. The senior year has been characterized by rotation successively through each of the services of the hospital with work in the w T ards and dis- pensaries. In addition, six weeks compulsory internship was spent by each senior on two of the services. This latter was an innovation in the curriculum this year and proved both instructive and popular. A survey of the aspirations of members of the class following graduation and internship reveals these choices: General Practice, 38; Medicine, 14; Surgery, 13; Psychiatry, 5; Obstetrics and Gynecology, 5; Pediatrics, 4; Pathology, 2; Anes- thesiology, 1; and undecided as yet, 18. Problems facing the graduate of 1952 are possible service in another war and a rising trend in this country toward socialization of medical practice. 13 BENJAMIN ALFRED ADELSTEIN ’Twas during the blizzard of ’26 that Ben “breeched” blissfully into Butte, Montana; and as a complication of the neonatal period, it was early recognized that he was regaling occupants of neighboring bassinets with risque gurgles, a habit that has endeared him to friends and classmates for 25 years. The family hopped a local prairie schooner eastward soon after and since have called Germantown, Pa. home. After eighteen months in the Naval Air Corps during World War II, Ben boxed his way in championship style through Uni- versity of Pennsylvania, receiving his A.B. in 1948. Included among his hobbies are Phi Beta Pi, fishing, sports and Bobbe Vogel, whom he squired for eight years before convincing her that two can live as cheaply as one. Ben expects to take up the Bard-Parker next year at University Hospital. CHARLES BAIRD ADAMS, JR. Charley made his initial debut on July 11, 1927 in Richmond Hill, N.Y., but since, has journeyed southward to take up permanent residence in Eastport, Maryland. Following eighteen months in the U.S. Navy as a corps- man, he attended the University of Maryland from which he received his B.S. degree. A virtual jack-of-all-trades, Charley’s summers have been filled with diversified activities — delivering mail, getting married to Edy, study- ing marine flora with the U. S. Fish and Wild Life Service, and inspecting “privies” with the Health Department. His scholastic excellence is reflected in his membership in AOA; yet his efficient planning and study habits allowed him ample time to serve as class vice-president for two years and to be an active member in Phi Beta Pi. A career in some undecided specialty is Charley’s goal. 14 CHARLES GLEN ADKINS On March 26, 1925, a weary, overworked stork flew a familiar course over the hills of West Virginia to the Adkins home and re- luctantly dropped its 8th bundle of joy into this well-populated residence. Reared in East Lynn, West Virginia, “Charlie Grind " , spent a fruitless 3 years in the Army as an M.P. and, upon his return to civilian activity, ob- tained his premedical training at Marshall College and West Virginia University. His sum- mers have been spent chasing rats thru Georgia for the Public Health Service and externing at Venereal Disease Hospital in Durham, N.C. each vacation being adequately sprinkled with off moments spent in golfing and fishing. Following graduation, Charlie plans to return with his wife Dorothy Mae and their young daughter, Suzanne, to West Virginia, where he will intern and do General Practice. RICHARD ELMER AHLQUIST, JR. Dick, better known as the “Greyhound,” looked through his icteric eyes at the obstet- rician and stated: “I’m gonna’ be a cuttin’ doctor!” Surviving a hectic adolescence, he spent 22 months as a waist gunner in the Army Air Force, thence journeyed to Palo Alto to obtain his premedical training at Stan- ford. While in college, Dick impressed scouts with his prowess on the ballfield, but rejected a professional bid from the Yankees in favor of surgery. Fraternally speaking, he answers roll call at Nu Sigma Xu and Alpha Omega Alpha; maritally speaking, Dick answers to Jan, whom he married in 1950. In preparation for his career in surgery, this ambitious West- erner spent last summer as a surgical extern at Mass. General. Dick intends to practice in his hometown of Spokane, Washington. 15 GEORGE CARL ALDERMAN, JR. This 23 year old well-developed, well-nourish- ed, white male, sleeping blissfully in class, was born on December 8, 1928 in Baltimore. Finding his whereabouts to his liking, George stayed on to continue his studies at Loyola College, receiving his B.S. in 1948. Being Nu Sigma Nu’s and class of 52’s most eligible bachelor, he has often experienced difficulty in fitting his medical work into his social schedule; however, his academic record will attest to the fact that the adjustment has been quite successful. Tiring of his innumerable pilgrimages to Ocean City, big George spent last summer externing at Peninsula General in Salisbury in order to be in close proximity to his “Mecca.” At present, his future plans are in a state of flux, but there is some partiality towards Medicine. JAMES WILLIAM ANDREWS “Tiger” sleepily groped his way into the city of Akron, Ohio on April 24, 1922. Prior to medical school, his past history had been punctuated by service with the 8th Air Force flying a B-17 in the ETO, by a marriage to Patricia in August 1944, and by a graduation with a B.S. from world-renowned Muskingum College in Ohio in 1948. A long, lean, gangling ectomorph, Jim goes complacently about his work, issuing “profound statements”and in- cessantly smoking a pipe. This outdoor en- thusiast quite frankly admits that his hobby of fishing and hunting has been relegated to a subsidiary role, since it interfered with his sleeping habits. “Tig,” who sympathizes with the suffering wives of medical students, plans to enter General Practice in Florida as quickly as possible after interning at Jackson Mem- orial in Miami. 16 RAYMOND MELVIN ATKINS Striding over the perpendicular part of West Virginia, Ray arrived at the town of Marlington on January 21, 1927. However, he spent most of his time in Baltimore and now reluctantly calls it home. While a USNR Air Cadet, he “covered the waterfront” of American univer- sities. His education was completed at the University of Maryland, and to top off his learn- ing, he married an Eastern Shore schoolteacher — Julia Lacey, on July 22, 1951. Ray put in time at the Maryland ‘Pen’ (as an extern) and also worked at Maryland General Hospital. He fits his Nu Sigma Nu activities in with chess, going barefoot to dances, and at one time with chauffeuring a jointly owned hearse. After striking a rich internship Ray plans to hang out his shingle in a medium sized com- munity as a G.P. DANIEL BAKAL Dan, born in the Empire City on January 8, 1926, has lived here so long that he is really a Baltimorean. In 1943 he entered the Army via the ASTRP and after sojourning at Lehigh University, he had a walking trip through Europe at the courtesy of the Infantry. Following his discharge he entered Loyola College and in 1948 graduated with a B.S. degree. Summers have been spent touring New England and Canada with his wife Ruth, and less lucratively as an extern at University and Lutheran Hospitals. At odd moments he is to be found reading, playing chess and bridge, and engaging in the activities of Phi Delta Epsilon. A thorough-going individual, Dan will spend several hospital years prior to opening up as a general practitioner or as a pediatrician. 17 TIMOTHY DANFORD BAKER In step with the music, Tim fell into the passing parade going through Mt. Washington on July 4, 1925. With an air of excitement constantly about him, he spent two flighty years in the Air Corps but, coming down to earth, he developed a more than casual interest in geology, photography, and skiing, and attended Johns Hopkins University, graduating with a A.B. in 1948. Available sparetime has been divided among his hobbies — baby snatch- ing at Volunteer’s of America Hospital, sleep- ing in class, bridge playing, and bidding at auctions. Virtually everyone in the class leaves with a remnant of Tim’s salesmanship. On June 23, 1951, he married Sue Pardee, toured the continent, and spent a month studying at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, while on the honeymoon. Internship will decide his future field. EDWARD HAROLD BERGOFSKY Ed, Baltimore born and bred, sauntered into the world on June 18, 1927, and immed- iately began storing information, the latter item being kept well shielded beneath a crew cut and behind scholarly horned rims. The U.S.N.R. broadened his horizons in 1945, fol- lowing which he landed a B.S. at the Uni- versity of Maryland in 1948. A member of the “Alaskan Troupe” in ’49, he spent sub- sequent summers in Paterson, N.J. General Hospital, and in Springfield State Hosital. Well oriented in most fields, Ed relies on his dry satirical wit to gain entrance into bridge games and bull sessions. He has proven his scholastic ability by being selected for the Frederica Gehrmann Award and for Alpha Omega Alpha. Eddie is a member of Phi Delta Epsilon and, after interning, expects to pour out his troubles to a psychoanalyst. 18 OSVALDO BERRIOS The sleepy metropolis of Bayamon, nestling under the torrid Puerto Rican sun, was un- mercifully stirred on December 17, 1927, when uninhibited Bob first made his appearance. 1944 found him in the U.S. Army, where he rose to the mighty rank of T 3, spent some time in Panama and later, to reward his good conduct, was sent to the barren Galapagos Islands to keep an eye on some wild goats. Remarkable Bob remains as one of the few persons to walk out on Dr. Uhlenhuth’s lecture saying, " Til be right back!”. Always ener- getic, he spent his first summer’s vacation externing at Casualty Hospital in D. C., where one day he spied a cute patient, Jo Ann Miller, who is to become his bride on June 20, 1952. After internship, Bob plans to go into General or Plastic Surgery in Puerto Rico. JACK ARTHUR BRIDGES Husky Jack was hailed into the great north- western town of Mill City, Oregon, on July 19, 1921. A Chief Pharmacist’s Mate in the U.S. Navy for six years, Jack served on an LST and managed to circumnavigate the globe in a brief five months. Returning from his “grand tour,” he married Margaret in Los Angeles in September, 1944, and soon after launched a daughter, Connie. True to his name and western heritage Jack indulges in sports in a big way and one can still hear his voice echoing — “Need a fourth?”. He matric- ulated at College Park and has been our able Student Council representative for the past two years. Jack expects to serve an internship on the East coast and then hit the Oregon Trail to home. 19 LOWELL ELLIS BRITTAIN Although his usual manner is quiet and reserved, Lowell will vehemently avow his disdain at the slightest mention of royalty, especially British. From whence this distorted air of rebellion originated is not known, but perhaps it was accumulated after 5 2 years in the Army. This 30 year old product of States- ville, N.C. was intent on an Army career, but fate dealt kindly to Lowell, directing his foot- steps to the University of North Carolina and then to Maryland. Industrious in his work, Lowell claims, however, to be devoid of any special extracurricular interests; his wife Kay will assuredly attest that their young daughter occupies all of his free time. After an intern- ship in Raleigh, Lowell plans to pursue life as a General Practitioner somewhere in North Carolina. JAMES BURCH BROOKS This genteel Baltimorean acquired a lasting devotion toward his native city following his birth there on July 1, 1926; consequently, Jim has resided there since that very first day. He traveled via foot over Europe while in the Army and, upon discharge, studied at Loyola College, receiving his B.S. in 1948. Of a dis- passionate and somewhat lethargic nature, Jim nevertheless astonishes his colleagues with his profound knowledge of the literary classics and with his continual probing dry wit. His penmanship approaches illegibility, a factor which has stood him good stead in many exams. A member of Nu Sigma Nu, he served as its president during the 1950-51 term. Still em- phasizing his longing for home, Jim’s plans beyond internship are not yet formulated; however, we can say with certainty that he will practice in Baltimore. 20 WILLIAM MORRIS BROWN, JR. This long, lanky Southerner was born early in the morning on December 13, 1926, in Macon, Georgia and has been tired ever since. Morris received his A.B. in 1948 from Mercer University where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order. He took two years off for a sojourn in the South Pacific as a staff sergeant in the Medical Corps. Last sum- mer Morris served as a surgical intern at the Middle Georgia Hospital in Macon, and since has had chronic Bard-Parker fever, adopting as his motto — “If in doubt — cut it out.” His interests are golf, tennis, scotch, experimental surgery and Nu Sigma Nu. A strictly suave, debonair, easy-going young man, Morris plans to specialize in General and Thoracic Surgery — in Georgia, that is, suh. JOHN EDWARD CARROLL, JR. This red-headed, freely-imbibing Irishman was blessed upon his fellow-man on October 8, 1922. Although born and raised in Baltimore, the thing dearest to his heart is “the wearin’ o’ the green.” During the war he flew the big ones as a Captain in the Air Force and he took a flight to the altar with Dorothy in 1946 which led to John E. Carroll III — age 4. Jack was president of Phi Beta Pi, is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, and has long been one of the more prominent socialities of the pinball set. Since 1950 he has been as- sociated with Dr. Novak at Bon Secours Hos- pital. As yet undecided as to his future plans, at present he gives the nod to OB-GYN. JACK OLIVER CARSON Gentleman Jack, better known as “The Great Vaselino,” was born in Bethel, North Carolina, on July 26, 1926. He was trapped at an early age, equipped with shoes and a jug, and sent to Duke University. After two years of Navy life, he went to the University of North Carolina where he received a B.S. degree and started his medical training, joining Phi Chi fraternity. Stories of Maryland’s horses and women lured Jack northward, but he soon lost interest in the horses. Well-known for his repertoire of jokes and anecdotes, this con- genial Carolinian is always a “regional host” at class parties and social gatherings. Although outwardly an easy-going, slightly shy type of lad, the nurses’ homes classify him as definitely malignant. If he survives the burdens of internship, Jack plans to do general practice in North Carolina. Illlil :? iiilill DANIEL CLYMAN Although a born and bred Baltimorean, Danny is a cosmopolitan New Yorker at heart. After two years of Pharmacy School and a two year trek through the South Pacific at the expense of the U.S. Navy, he returned to his first love — Medicine. At Maryland he obtained a B.S. in Zoology and Old English. His sum- mers were spent in picturesque New Hampshire as a dramatic director and camp doctor; and he took a commission with the U.S.P.H.S. to do research work on encephalitis. A member of Phi Alpha and Phi Delta Epsilon, he was accepted into Phi Kappa Phi and Alpha Omega Alpha also, and knows the Greek alphabet backwards and forwards. For the past two years his nights have been spent at Lutheran Hospital — medically and socially. Internal Med- icine is his goal. 22 PHIN COHEN Phin, one of the “kids” of the class, was born in Baltimore on June 1, 1928. Although he has lived in this city all of his life and intends to practice in this locale, this phlegma- tic scholar wandered south to Duke University, from which he received his B.A. degree in 1948. Phin entered medical school rather in- conspicuously, but soon established an enviable academic record, culminating last year by acceptance into Alpha Omega Alpha. His summers have been utilized in widening his medical knowledge as a fellow in Pathology and Infectious Diseases. Possessor of a satiri- cal sense of humor and a convincing poker-face expression, Phin can make the most prepost- erous confabulation seem apparently true. We are certain that his ambition to be an Internist in Baltimore will be fulfilled. STUART PITNER CULPEPPER Earmarked with the ante-bellum name of Culpepper and born in Buchanan, Georgia in 1927, this vintage Southerner now calls Or- lando, Florida home. Following two years of bedpan experience in the Navy, Stu plunged into premed work at the University of Georgia and came through with a B.S. degree in 1948. He also took a two year course in pleasantries at Rollins College, Florida, before the war. Stu was late in being shackled, but finally went the way of all bachelors in December 1951 to a girl from Orlando. Prior to that he was sauntering around Lutheran Hospital as an extern and spent a summer in pathology at Orange General in Florida. Stu’s motto may well be “Don’t Step on Me,” — for if perchance someday you are strolling through Daytona Beach you may anticipate him enjoying his favorite pastime — snoozing on the sand. 23 ANDREW MONROE DIGGS Veering sharply from the usual habits of other flag-waving Confederates, soft-spoken Monroe invariably remai ns noncommital or even silent on pertinent issues. Even though his outbursts of spontaneous verbalizations are rare, he will confirm that he was born in Charlotte, N.C. on May 18, 1926, that he spent two years in the U.S. Navy and that he attended U. of N.C. Monroe’s defenses seem to recede in the environment of wine, women and song; in these moments he attests to special in- terests in photography, travel, and a 1951 vacation in Europe. Medically speaking, he is quite certain of eventually specializing in Sur- gery and has supplemented his medical school work with an externship at Lutheran Hospital; still evasive, Monroe commits himself no fur- ther than to state that he will practice in the Southland. ANDREW JOSEPH DEVLIN They call him “The Champ” and rightly so. For Andy has the biggest family in the class — four little girls who are the pride and joy of the Devlin household. But bouncing babies on his knees didn’t prevent him from graduat- ing from Gonzaga University in 1948 or going through four years of medical school. He’s come a long way from Spokane, Washington where he was born and has lived most of his life. Most, that is, except for the three years in the Army Medical Corps where he saw service with the 75th and 2nd Infantry Divis- ions in the European Theater of Operations. A Nu Sigma Nu, Andy is indefinite concerning future ambitions, but sometimes one can hear him mumbling something about “beating Ed- die Cantor .” 24 ANTHONY JOHN DIGIOVANNI Tony first exhibited his musical talents to those who cared to listen on April 22, 1918, in Baltimore, his present residence. Despite the rugged environment afforded by Highland- town, where he was reared, Tony nevertheless managed to reach adulthood without any per- manent traumatic residuals and without alter- ing his congenial disposition. After an interval of fifty combat missions as navigator on a B-17 in the ETO, this amiable accordionist continued his academic explorations, attaining an A.B. from Johns Hopkins University in 1948. Music has served not only as a diversion, but also as a financial supplement for his wife, Lottie and two children — Tony Jr., and Denise Rose. Upon completion of internship, Tony Sr. plans to do General Practice, prob- ably in this city. ROBERT ARNOLD DOUGLAS His friends call him “Doug,” but in order to obviate confusion, his classmates prefer “R.A.”. Doug hails from DeLand, Florida, the home of Stetson University, his Alma Mater, “The University the hats made fa- mous.” Doug has spent his summers working in Dr. Sack’s lab and working at Bethlehem Steel in industrial medicine. Bob’s devotion to Florida can readily be demonstrated by the mere mention of the California Navel orange. He was honored this past year by being elected president of the Christian Medical Society. His ambition is to be a good general prac- titioner in a small town where he can take Michael, Alice Lee and Beth Ann to a ‘western’ movie every Saturday and spend his spare time playing with snakes or fishing. 25 WILLIAM STANLEY DUNFORD, JR. Bill says “you can’t have hair and brains too; that’s why I’m so well endowed.” He longs for the day when, with degree in hand, he and Bernice can pack up Kristene, 6, and Nancy 3, and drive back to the Rockies where they hope to settle down. Born in Salt Lake City and educated at Brigham Young University, which, he claims, has a good basketball team, Bill came to Maryland with a B.S. degree in Zoology. He externed one summer at the Utah State Mental Hospital and spent another at Bethlehem Steel Company working in industrial medicine. Nineteen months of his three and one-half years of service with the Army Med- ical Corps were spent in General Patch’s hidden army at Fort Lewis, Washington. Aspirations such as Internal Medicine or General Surgery will test his tenacity and capacity. ROBERT CORL DOUGLASS, JR. “R.C.” — to be differentiated from “R.A.” — came to the University of Maryland from Ohio with a B.S. degree from the University of Toledo — which, he claims, has a good bas- ketball team. The war years found Bob on the German-Czech border doing top secret work as a special agent in Army Counter Intelligence Corps, and he still shows evidence of the C.I.C. training in his interrogation of patients for medical histories. Nu Sigma Nu, classical music, history of medicine, and Stan Kenton were his hobbies until this year when his time has been devoted to (1) Eleanor Seiter, whom he married in June 1951, and (2) co- editing this yearbook. “R.C.’s” professional aspirations for the moment are either General Practice or Internal Medicine in the Mid-West. 26 HERBERT LEWIS ECKERT On August 21, 1927, Lansdale, Pennsylvan- ia was introduced to Herb and Pennsylvania held his interests long enough to give him a high school education; his present home town is Takoma Park, Maryland. Herb’s hobbies are sailing and other water sports and he has been able to correlate his summer activities with “playing in the water and getting paid for it.” He has aided in operating swimming and life- saving departments at various boys camps during two vacations. When not externing at Maryland General Hospital, he is engaged in Nu Sigma Nu activities or “educating” young and tender student nurses. Herb’s primary interest in medicine is Pediatrics, for which he is taking a straight internship in Pediatrics at University Hospital. He will always be re- membered by those who knew him best as “Herb, the urologist, and watch out for the filiforms!” LAWRENCE DEEMS EGBERT, JR. General Surgery claims the interest of Larry who hails from Chevy Chase, Maryland. Born September 22, 1927, in Urbana, Illinois, he spent 1946-47 with the 12th Cavalry in Japan. Larry received his undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University with an A.B. degree in Biology in 1948. During the past four busy years Larry served as secretary to Nu Sigma Nu, externed at Lutheran Hospital, Casualty Hospital in Washington and Relay Sanitarium. A high point in his career occurred when he posed as an anatomical mannikin for Dr. Brantigan in Surgical Anatomy. His heart was won by Dorothy Staples, whom he married in June 1950, and Larry is now the proud father of Louise Deems Egbert. He is just as proud of his bridge playing and just as adamant to the club convention. 27 CHARLES STANLEY ELLIOTT Stan is an old dyed-in-the-wool Navy man, having practiced the Navy way for over ten years as a hospital corpsman. Born in Butler- ville, Indiana, and now claiming Linton, In- diana, as his home town, he received his formal education at the University of Miami in Florida and Emory University in Georgia. His mature attitude in daily life won him the job of class treasurer for four years, during which time he has pleaded, coaxed, and cajoled enormous sums out of a seemingly poverty- stricken class. Stan is affiliated with Nu Sigma Nu and spends his spare time, otherwise, play- ing bridge, golfing, hunting, or fishing. He claims that his present special interest is “get- ting that sheepskin, its been a long wait.” Ultimately, he aspires to General Surgery, “if I live long enough.” LEE WILLIAM ELGIN, JR. Bill is an easy-going polyphagic Miami- an, who was born, reared and educated in Florida until the state ran out of institutions of learning, and then he came to Maryland. In his spare moments, he has been treasurer of Nu Sigma Nu, has delved into photography and wookwork, and has worked at Dade County Blood Bank in Miami. So far, Bill has escaped the clutches of the opposite sex which is evidenced by the fact that he plans to spend four or five years in hospital training after graduation. His primary interest in medicine is as yet undecided; but, perhaps he will follow in the foo tsteps of his father who is a urologist. At any rate, his one month with Dr. Toulson while interning in Surgery this year should serve as a factor in his ultimate decision. 28 JOSEPH PAUL FESKI One of the “old men” of the class, jovial Joe was born in Black Lick, Pennsylvania in 1913. He acquired his pre-medical education at Duquesne University and the University of of Pittsburgh, receiving a B.S. degree from the latter school. Industrious Joe spent his first two summer vacations externing at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Baltimore. A confirmed married man, he tied the wedding knot with a fellow lab technician, Evelyn Swegal, way back in 1941. Joe’s special interests lie in Phi Beta Pi, fishing, hunting, cocker spaniels, and tinkering with automobiles; his future desire is to “find a small town in Pennsylvania that is seriously short of doctors and settle there as a G.P.”. JACK FINE A native of Baltimore, Jack boosted its population by one on November 2, 1924. After serving a hitch as a deep sea diver in the U.S. Navy, he obtained his premedical educa- tion at the University of Maryland. Summers were utilized mostly to support Mr. and Mrs. Fine, but somehow a short externship at Doc- tor’s Hospital was also squeezed in. An eager narrator as well as listener to any joke or reasonable facsimile thereof, Jack has enter- tained his classmates on innumerable oc- casions during the past four years; his in- imitable rendition of “Sam — You Made the Pants Too Long” will be cherished by all as a personification of his personality. As for the days ahead, Jack will probably engage in general practice in his home town. 29 LOUIS ALBERT FRITZ Having decided to deviate from the parental hardware and paint profession, Lou has cut a path which leads to the practice of OB-GYN in his native city of Baltimore. Soon after completing involuntary training as an Elec- tronics Technician’s Mate in the Navy from ’45 to ’46, he returned with renewed academic determination; the results— B.S. from Loyola College, Maryland, in 1948, and Alpha Omega Alpha member at medical school. Good at figures, notations, and statistics, Lou is sec- retary of Phi Beta Pi and also a vicarious sportsman who knows surprising details about the athletes in football and baseball. He caught the OB-GYN bug externing at Bon Secours Hospital the summer of 1951; at the end of the summer the love bug caught him — he married Rosemarie Ramsay on August 26, 1951. MICHAEL JOSEPH FOLEY Fairmont, West Virginia, remembers Mike as a fair-haired native son, the U.S. Army knew him as a Private, West Virginia recalls him as a Bachelor of Arts, and the Phi Beta Pi fraternity will never forget him as a drink- ing companion. By self-admission, this quiet but thoughtful lad who toils energetically through each semester, wisely “loafed away” his summer vacations. Like many young men, Mike’s interests center around his fraternity (in which his activity could hardly be termed passive), athletics, and women; like many young West Virginians, he appears to have been weaned on the laces of a basketball and to have spent a goodly portion of his child- hood sinking one-hand shots from just beyond the foul line. 1960 will find Mike as an es- tablished General Practitioner in Clarksburg, West Virginia. 30 ROBERT WILLIAM GEBHARDT Bob, or Geb was born and reared in Balti- more City and attended several local colleges before receiving his B.S. from the University of Maryland. Two years of his career were spent as a Pharmacists Mate in an EENT oper- ating room at Great Lakes. A quiet and diligent student, Bob is proficient in acquiring medical knowledge as well as utilizing the information. He possesses probably the best physique in the class, having spent many long hours lifting weights. He engages with equal zest in photo- graphy. As is usually the case with these strong silent varieties, Geb’s social life is far from uninteresting, although he shuns parties and collections of people. His ambition is to become, in his words, a “personal physician,” better known as a G.P. CHARLES FRANKLIN GILLIAM This rousing rebel first saw light of day in Thomasville, North Carolina, in 1925, and years later found himself amid test tubes at the University of North Carolina, from which he received his A.B. in 1948. After completing his first two years of medical school at the afore- mentioned university, big Charlie met us as Juniors. He soon became noted for his spas- ticity before exams, his incessant note-taking, and for his general scholarship. He is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha and Phi Chi. Summers were spent pursuing carpentry, soft- ball, and women, and externing at State Hos- pital in Raleigh. Charlie is somewhat unique in that he is one of the select few who have cashed in on the Student Health fee, having had his thrombotic superficial femoral ligated. A general practice somewhere in the South is forecast as his future. 31 LUIS FELIPE GONZALEZ “Speedie” came to Maryland from South of the border way — to be exact, from Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. After completing high school there, he came to the states to do his premed training at Gettysburg College and the Uni- versity of Maryland. It seems that Lou came to study Freud but changed his mind following a junior internship at University Hospital on the OB-GYN services. If our naive, roly-poly endomorph had any conflicts concerning Psy- chiatry, he surely must have resolved them during this period — for now he plans to specialize in OB-GYN. Although his Spanish interpretation of English and his squat phy- sique have been the target of friendly jocular- ity, cheerful Lou nevertheless takes these gibes in stride and laughingly maintains this com- posure. Speedie plans eventually to return to Puerto Rico to establish his practice. PAUL HAROLD GISLASON On April 7, 1925, a rapidly tiring stork dropped two bundles on the Gislason doorstep in Grand Forks, North Dakota — one was Baby Paul, the other a golf bag; the two have remained inseparable ever since. After a col- lege career at North Dakota University, divided by three years with the Navy, “Gis” headed for Baltimore followed closely by Marion, who shortly thereafter became his Mrs. A member and 1949-50 president of Phi Beta Pi, he has spent his summers working and externing in this city, invariably climaxing each vacation with several weeks of golf in North Dakota. After an internship in Pennsylvania, our own “Ben Hogan” plans to do General Practice or Urology; whatever his future holds, in med- icine or on the links, his driving will be long and his putting true. 32 JAY CALVIN GORE Romance in England characterized the career of J.C.G. while vacationing at Army expense during the war years. Enjoying the English countryside and pubs, he was unaccountably tripped up at Shipton Mallet in 1944 by an irresistible Somerset County lass with whom he took his matrimonial degree. Although this bliss was cut short by a foot tour of Europe as a field artillery sergeant, a happy surprise in the form of baby boy, Victor, awaited him on his return to England. Jay was born in Reisterstown and remained here after the war to take his A.B. at Western Maryland College in 1948. Jimmy became the fourth member of the family during the early days of medical school and curtailed somewhat his interests in Canasta and hunting, although he is still an important consultant to the Gebhardt-Gore C.P.C. Guessing Company. JAMES RODNEY GRABILL Rod, who is quite emphatic in denouncing the use of “Rodney”, is perhaps the most nattily dressed member of the class. Neat and trim, and endowed with the innate ability to “wear” clothes, he appears as a well-estab- lished prosperous business man, while in real- ity Rod is the exact antithesis. This 31 year old Cumberland resident foresook his native state in obtaining his premed qualifications at Georgetown and American Lniversities. During medical school Rod : s mature oudook and con- genial nature won him offices in Phi Beta Pi and the Newman Club. Professors, classmates and patients alike have had their life scenes relived thru his impersonations; historical was his memorable and vivid enactment of our own Dr. U. Following 2 years of internship, Rod has forecast a General Practice “some- place in the Continental U. S.” 33 C. EDWARD GRAYBEAL Torn between two loves — one for his dairy farm home and the other for medicine, Ed finally solved the question by immediately studying medicine and planning ultimately to own a beef cattle farm. This down-to-earth practical native son of Rising Sun, Maryland stalked thru three years of undergraduate work at College Park and four years of medical school resolutely chewing his unlit pipe. Spare hours have found Ed rarely concentrating in the library, but rather fixing his attention on a double finesse thru the board. Sports have left tangible impressions on him as evidenced by visible marks of bodily contact. True to his word, Ed planned on a rural General Practice, but following surgical internship, his thoughts have focused on Urology. DAVID ERIC GRAHAM Dave came to Maryland after completing two years of medical school at the University of North Carolina. Shortly thereafter, the stu- dent body discovered that this skeptic Con- federate was a “natural” comic. Draping his loose-jointed frame over three or four lecture seats with his inseparable cigar wedged in the corner of his mouth, Dave can roll ’em in the aisle with an endless array of jokes related in a leisurely southern drawl. Although known best for his clowning, he nevertheless is second to none in completing his work in a thorough and satisfactory manner. Upon completion of his internship, Dave contem- plates setting up a General Practice in the mountains of western North Carolina, where undoubtedly his immortal caustic comment — “that ain’t no such of a damned thing” — will go echoing thru the hills. WILLIAM RICHARD GRECO Bill, whose tastes favor petite blondes, has definitely shown an appreciation for the finer things in life. Born in Bayonne, N.J., he now cherishes College Park as his hometown; studying first at Notre Dame, he soon trans- ferred to the University of Maryland; and final- ly, to prove the original statement, Bill mar- ried Doris, a petite blonde, in 1949. This ex-Navy man will quite frankly admit that his summ ers have been spent in an idyllic manner — “working, playing and traveling. ' ’ Versatile and nimble, Bill has displayed his talents as a broken-field man on the gridiron and as an agile playmaker on the basketball court. Again aspiring for the better things, this Phi Beta Pi plans to go into General Prac- tice in Florida. ROBERT ALVIN GRUBB “Grubbzer’s” firm resolution to be a small town General Practitioner in Pennsylvania has kept his medical interests strictly along practical lines. He has, however, not failed to make use of all available sources of in- formation, especially during the past year when his studies were supplemented heavily by daily television conferences. Born in Dry Saw Mill, Pennsylvania, 28 years ago, Bob, in the interim, served 4 years in the AAF, received a B.S. from University of Maryland, married, entered medical school, became a father, and at present is recuperating from decubiti suffered at Mercy Hospital. A con- stant source of dry wit and humor, Grubbzer has achieved immortality because of his deep growling bass voice; many class meetings have been totally disrupted when it sounded off with a stimulating, if highly irregular, com- ment. 35 LEON DUDLEY HANKOFF Leon, on June 17, 1927, strode feverishly out of the delivery room with a pack of blue- books under his arm and immediately began gathering pearls from the attending obstetri- cian. He underwent further growth and devel- opment in Baltimore and cut a wide scholastic swath through Franklin and Marshall College and the University of Maryland. Lee spent one summer living the vigorous life of a Wyoming oil-well rigger and another as the guest of the Pfizer Company, besides externing at Spring Grove and playing catch at the Volunteers of A merica Hospital. An except- ional academic attitude tempered with prac- ticality, enhanced by unusual powers of dis- cernment unclouded by emotion led to his induction into Alpha Omega Alpha and will, no doubt, strongly influence his future in Psychiatry. WILLIAM BENJAMIN HARRIS His ready humor and well-proportioned sense of lasciviousness can always be counted on to keep things moving whenever Willie is around. Coming from North Carolina, Bill lays claim to a number of talents and diverse in- terests. An avid sports fan, Bill is apt to be seen departing from almost any class for a nearby baseball diamond. His more official associations are the USNR and Phi Chi medical fraternity. Greenville’s gift to the University of Maryland has a wide experience in extern- ships; included are the N.C. State Hospital at Butner, the University Hospital and Santa Mon- ica Hospital. Bill intends going into General Practice for a few years before settling down to a specialty. He is interested in Psychiatry, too, but may find an outlet for his energies in the field of Orthopedics. 36 WILLIAM LENOX HEIMER Bill, who was born in Buffalo in 1923, saw most of the United States and part of Europe before settling down to medical school at Maryland. His “traveling” in Europe was under Air Corps auspices, but in this country his education touring carried him to the Uni- versity of Florida, George Washington Uni- versity and the University of Maryland, re- ceiving his B.S. from the latter school. By nature quiet and reserved, unassuming Bill is a solid Maryland fan and on many autumn Saturday afternoons listens intently to or watches the football fortunes of the “Big Team”. His extracurricular life is shared by his wife, Betty Lou, whom he met in the formalized atmosphere of dogfish dissection. Uncertain as to his exact career in medicine, Bill is contemplating choosing either Pediatrics or Internal Medicine. CHARLES MARTIN HOLMES Charley, who admits brazenly to the fact that women are his type, has never really confirmed his bachelorhood, despite its duration, and, we predict matrimony as his ultimate fate. Among Charles’ claims to uniqueness is his persistent state of apprehensiveness, a number of years behind a tenor sax and the controls of a biplane, and a particpating interest in classical ballet — which he has pursued under the en- thusiastic encouragement of our cultured president. Charley labels Takoma Park, Mary- land, his hometown with some allegiances to Florida where he attended under-graduate school. As a “detail man” during the summer Charley spread the fame of University of Mary- land over several of the United States. His chief professional yearning is towar d General Surgery, notwithstanding a curious interest in Chiropractic. 37 WILLIAM BAIRD HUDGINS When first admired for his close resemb- lance to President Truman, Baird replied vig- orously, “I’d rather hang.” This friendly rebel first displayed his investigative talents by seeking out the new world on February 10, 1926. Since this epic occasion, he has traveled over many horizons as an enlisted man in a tank destroyer team, as a security officer on a Pacific troop transport, and as a graduate of Emory University. Finally under a full and handsome Georgia moon on September 1, 1949 he took a wife. Summers have been utilized earning that which makes the winters possible and his last summer was spent as an externe at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Baltimore. Baird plans to devote himself to the practice of Internal Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, with particular interest in Endocrinology. ROMULUS VANCE HOUCK, JR. When Vance’s muscular frame first graced the classrooms of medical school, the depart- ments of Bacteriology and Psychiatry faced a major problem in overcoming his skepticism toward both subjects. However, his doubting nature and his “I’ve got to be shown” attitude has instilled in Vance an incentive for learning, the culmination of which is an envious aca- demic record and membership in AOA. A resident of Baltimore since his birth in 1924, he departed from the local scene to serve 4 years in the AAF, to marry Annette and to attain a premedical background at University of Maryland. Summers have been utilized in diverse roles varying from auto mechanic to externe. Although Vance’s future career is not yet certain, he now will reluctantly admit that some bugs are pathogenic and Psychiatry is more than a pseudo-science. 38 DeWITT TALMADE HUNTER, JR. Every class has its student romance and the class of ’52 cherishes its happily wedded couple, Dee and Ginny Hunter, who at the end of the freshman year, made it a medical team. Dee, who wears the pants in the family, was born on January 16, 1924, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He learned his elementary EKG as a graduate electrical engineer from the U.S. Naval Academy, and as an Ensign with the Pacific and Alaskan commands renewed his acquaintance with the sea. Dr. Lhlenhuth first introduced him into the delights of ana- tomical research, where, in addition, he learned that beside the usual four chambers, there existed a fifth — the matrimonial chamber. The past vacation was spent as an extern at Lu- theran Hospital. With his ability to probe beneath the obvious, Dee will add to medical progress as a future investigator and inst ruc- tor. VIRGINIA HUNTER Virginia, whose sweet manner has won the hearts of all her classmates, hails originally from the southwestern community of Fort Worth, Texas. She attended Westhampton Col- lege and received a Bachelor of Arts degree. During the freshman and sophomore summer vacations, Ginny worked as a librarian in Welch Medical Library. Her junior year found her in the service of Lutheran Hospital as a ro- tating extern. She lists, as her special interests, cooking, music, reading and, if coaxed, will reticently add Dee. We ' re sure that with her kind and understanding nature the kiddies of the future will be benefitted markedly by her pediatric talents. 39 IRVIN HYATT This outstanding combination of learned professional man and master of dry witticism will, in the future, no doubt, be known as “The Physician.” Irv first ventured on the scene on July 2, 1925 in Baltimore and re- ceived premedical training at Johns Hopkins and at College Park, from which he took his B.S. He wielded a shovel in the SeeBees during the war in the Pacific, visiting both Hawaii and Guam. Irv took the “cure” last summer at the United States Narcotic Hospital in Lexing- ton, Ky., and this year has ably guided the Phi Delta Epsilon Scientific Committee, in addition to being a member of Alpha Omega Alpha honorary. Still non-committal about specialty training, Irv, at present, leans toward Internal Medicine. FRANKLIN LLOYD KELLER Though he began inauspiciously enough on January 12, 1926 in New Kensington, Penn- sylvania, Frank’s versatility has led him into many unrelated fields of endeavor. He is equal- ly adept at mountain climbing, interpreting Beethoven, Gandy-dancing on the Alaska rail- road, or as a lab technician computing blood sugars. Frank received his A.B. degree from Gettysburg College in 1945, and became a graduate of the Lutheran Theological Seminary in 1948. Summers have been used to extern at St. Agnes and University Hospitals, and during his entire junior year he “roomed — in” at Lutheran Hospital. An exchange of marriage vows occurred on September 5, 1951, to Ruth Meyers from the Church Home nyrsing staff. Surgery as a medical missionary in Liberia, Africa is his aspiration. 40 FRANK MENEFEE KLINE Known for his ability to take life in small daily doses, “Klinker” admits frankly that he expects to be an octogenarian. Although younger in years than most of the class, Frank already has accumulated a vast knowledge of human aberrations, wich will serve him well in his role of country practitioner. He was born on May 14, 1928 in the hills of Cumber- land, Maryland, but has since migrated to Bow- ie, Maryland, where the Klines are masters of all they survey. Frank received his premedical training at the University of Maryland, where it is rumored that the Chemistry Department still speaks in quiet awe of his exploits. For two years he has earned his board and keep by drawing bloods and suturing lacerations at Franklin Square Hospital. Internship will find the “boy doctor” scrubbing up somewhere in Michigan. JOSEPH ANTHONY KNELL, JR. Although diagnosed clinically as a suspected case of Chronic Progressive Narcolepsy, the “Captain” has finally convinced one and all that it is merely an uncanny ability to relax completely under stimulus of a medical lec- ture. However, the frequent sight of a nodding head and cherubic expression cannot disguise the keen and active medical mind slumbering beneath. Joe is considered a sharp observer particularly in problems surgical, where his sound judgment will be saving healthy tissue constantly. He has been a prized member of Phi Beta Pi since his sophomore year. Summers have been spent as a surgical extern at St. Joseph’s Hospital, where both Joe’s future wife and postgraduate surgical training await him. 41 IRVING KRAMER Originally a resident of mighty New York, Irv now fondly calls Baltimore his home. He first tangled with the Easter Spirit on a sunny day in April, 1925, when he was the original nest egg. Prior to medical school, Irv attended N.Y.U. and served for two and one-half years as an Army medic in the Pacific theatre. He is an active participant in Phi Delta Epsilon fra- ternity affairs, and also lists travel, basketball, photography, and two-neuron women as of special import. He has spent his summers traveling, working as a counsellor in a boy’s camp and as an externe at Lutherair Hospital. Graduation is Irv’s immediate aim since the future always seems able to take care of itself. JOHN MARTIN KRAGER John has proved to be a continuous source of humor and entertainment during our medi- cal school years. He will long be remembered for his imitations and comments on professors and subject matter alike, or, for his antics at the approach of a curvaceous nurse. Hence- forth, serum testosterone levels for human males can only rightly be measured in “Krager units.” John is a native of Baltimore, only venturing from its environs to serve a two )ear hitch in the U.S. Navy as a medical corpsman. Upon discharge he entered Loyola and in 1948 graduated with a B.S. and an acceptance into medical school. An internship and residency training in Internal Medicine will be acquired at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Baltimore. MORTON MORRIS KRIEGER The class of ’52 will be eternally grateful to Mort for his outstanding ability as a humor- ist and showman, the latter augmented by a talented baritone voice and an ability to dash off a lyric — be it spiritual, classical, or a national anthem. Before embarking on his medical education, he gathered the necessary prerequisites at Towson State Teachers Col- lege and the University of Maryland, interrupt- ed by service in the Army Air Force during World War II. In April, 1951, Mort married Sallye after several hectic conferences with Uncle Miltie concerning the Clinical Path mid- term exam. Spring Grove State Hospital has served as his undergraduate externship experi- ence. Mort expects to intern in Toledo and anticipates a boost in the future fortunes of Phi Delta Epsilon there. HERBERT WALTER LAPP Sporting a thick well-groomed crop of black hair, a youthful countenance and a personal- ity bursting with vim, vigor, and vitality, Herb is often mistakenly labeled as “just a kid.” Truthfully, however, he is entering his fourth decade, a fact which he willingly ac- knowledges. Having obtained his premedical training at Seton Hall University in New Jer- sey, Herb entered medical school where his energetic geniality won him countless friend- ships. His extracurricular interests are varied, including tropical fish, duck hunting, sports, music, and his fraternity — Phi Delta Epsilon — which benefits from his active participation. Herb’s devoted wife, Larry, whom he married in 1948, has made the rocky road to graduation immeasurably smoother. Following an intern- ship at Bon Secours Hospital, Anesthesiology will become his specialty of choice. 43 ROBERT GEORGE LOVE After two years of sowing his wild oats as a medical student, love struck Love and Bob was married during Christmas vacation of his junior year to Toni. By the following Christ- mas Cynthia Ann made it three. Although exposed to Southern hospitality in Maryland, Bob remains a clipped New Englander and calls Littleton, Massachusetts his hometown. He studied at Norwich University and re- ceived his B.S. from University of Massachu- setts, and Bob still takes every opportunity to escape north for sprees for boating and skiing. Bob’s dry wit, joviality and smooth manner have characterized his entire medical school course and will serve well in General Practice after a year of witch hunting in a hospital in Salem, Massachusetts. CHARLES HARRY LIGHTBODY Harry first gained recognition by his re- markable dissecting ability in gross anatomy, finding structures which other students had long regarded as obsolete and outmoded. He has continued his outstanding work and es- tablished an excellent academic record. Pos- sessor of an engaging, sincere personality as well as a persuasive manner, this likable New Englander gains easy access to a patient’s medical dilemma and invariably derives the correct conclusions. Colby College, Maine, was the scene of his premedical activities, among which was a college romance which reached its climax at the altar in 1949. St. Joseph’s Hospital received his services during the sum- mer of 1951. General practice in the panor- amic expanses of the Maine countryside is Harry’s future medical career. 44 WILLIAM ALLEN MATHEWS Bill first quoted the literature in Zanesville. Ohio, but now claims Salisbury as his home. After receiving his undergraduate education at Westminster College, Ohio State and Witten- berg College, Bill descended upon Maryland where he rapidly established himself as a leading scholar in the class. Extremely active in school activities he has been a member ol the Student Council for three years (president during junior year), president of AOA his senior year and educational director of Nu Sigma Nu his junior year. Bill will be re- membered for his incessant quotation of the literature, for his voluminous mental capacity, for his feelings toward certain instructors and classmates, and for his authoritative discus- sions with professors. Combining a burning desire for knowledge with an astonishing abil- ity to remember and understand, Bill will achieve fame in Thoracic Surgery. JOHN NELSON McKAY “Mac”, a local Baltimorean of 27 years duration, traveled beyond the borders of this state to acquire his education, having attended Ohio Wesleyan University, University of Wyo- ming and Gettysburg College. Quiet and un- assuming, he has worked industriously during the school terms, while spending his summers getting married, relaxing at Ocean City and externing at Bon Secours Hospital. Mac has been able to resist the influences of fellow students and possesses no minor vices as smok- ing and drinking, which is indeed a rare entity in the medical profession. His insatiable cur- iosity and drive for knowledge often results in his presenting perplexing questions; in a similar vein, he often solves medical problems with factual answers. A future in General Practice, probably in this city, is Mac’s ambition. 45 RICHARD YOUNG OLSEN Spontaneously radiating that quantity of California sunshine he brought from his home state, “Oley’s” glowing facies has raised the spirits of both patient and colleague alike. Born in Venice, California in 1919, Dick shut- tled to and fro between Naval stations both here and on foreign soil before acquiring med- ical school requirements at west coast colleges. Eventually he attained his B.A. from UCLA and ceased his roaming in 1945 long enough to marry Joyce. Particularly eye-catching is Ol- ey’s fashionable California wardrobe; but by far and away the socks were the most hor- rendous item of his garb. With his personality bedecked in friendliness and his “savoir faire” in establishing a firm Doctor — patient relation- ship, Dick is aptly suited to carry on a General Pratice back in the Sunshine State. BENTON BLOCH PERRY Benton is a chubby, heavy-bearded individ- ual who, after collecting his premedical re- quirements at St. Johns of Annapolis, Univer- sity of Chicago, and the University of Mary- land, directed his well-worn arches thru the portals of medical school. Born and reared in Baltimore, Ben nevertheless journeyed to dis- tant regions of the United States during his va- cations — to USPHS Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky and to several summer camps where he toiled as waiter, counsellor and camp doc- tor. Medical school was prefaced by 25 months Naval service as a clinical laboratory technician. An ardent bridge fan, Benton in- terjects literature, dances and sports events between his three no trumps and little slams. Whatever branch of medicine Ben chooses in the years to follow will profit from his earnest endeavor. 46 JAMES SOLOMON PHELPS, JR. Jovial Jim, loudly attesting to his Carolinian derivation, steam-rollered his way into our midst in the initial days of the junior year. Emitting his first earth-shaking laugh some twenty nine years ago in Salisbury, N.C., this robust Tarheel was the scourge of the Chapel Hill campus until he received his B.S. in 1948. Notoriously carefree in nature, Jim’s entire 6’ 3”, 200 lb. structure, at the slightest pro- vocation, rocks and swells in hearty laughter until the sound, rising in crescendo, ends in a bellowing roar arising from deep within the confines of his thoracic cavity. Needless to say, between guffaws, this ex-sailor has found time to marry Rachel, work as a summer car- penter, extern at Lutheran Hospital and suc- cessfully complete his medical training. A General Practice in his home state is Jim’s ambition. WILLIAM ANDREW PILLSBURY, JR. An old top-kick with four years Army serv- ice during the war, Bill became second in command when he married Lee in 1946, soon after he was discharged. Bill attended Loyola College and received his B.S. in 1948. He spent his first year at the medical school as class president jousting with the administration and soothing harried freshmen with his ma- ture, but disarming, charm. A Phi Beta Pi, Bill spent his summers as a short order cook and extern at St. Joseph’s. His pride and joy is Vertalee Joan, now five years old. “Let’s have a cup of coffee” Pillsbury has divided his time between bridge and pinball, but Gen- eral Practice will keep him busy after intern- ship. GILBERTO RAMIREZ-SANTISTEBAN “Tato” is a young ingenue from Puerto Rico who has been polishing his line ever since leaving the University of Puerto Rico in 1948. Being the youngest member of the class has presented some problems, but Tato has so proven his ability as a connoisseur of spirits and femininity as to earn him the name of “the operator.” Also known as “the banana- picker,” his smooth dance floor technique is the envy of the School of Nursing. His pecul- iar ability to confound instructors by retreat- ing from embarrassing questions, into a mix- ture of Spanish and English will always be memorable. Nu Sigma Nu and an externsh ip at St. Agnes Hospital have channelled his in- terests toward Internal Medicine and San Juan may expect to be the recipient of his good looks after a year of internship. MALCOLM LEE ROBBINS Rabo’s birth date of August 5, 1928, fits him into the category of “youngsters” of the class. A Baltimorean from the very beginning, Mac spent his undergraduate days at Univer- sity of Maryland, receiving his B.S. from the same. From the first day of medicine, Mac established himself as one of the most happy- go-lucky guys of the group, ambling from class to class wearing a perpetual smile on his face. For relaxation, he turns to the bridge table, the pinball machine, or the athletic field. Another of the entrance bachelors, Rabo went the way of the majority when he succumbed to Norma’s charms on September 3, 1950. After several years of having his name misspelled and mis- pronounced, Mac is having it altered; future years will find “Dr. Robbins” doing General Practice. JONAS RALPH RAPPEPORT Europe during the war and Alaska, Arizona and Massachusetts during the summer are ample evidence that the travel bug bit Jonas soon after he was born in 1924. Counting salmon as they swam by in the Klondike has left a bizarre stamp on his behavior since his freshman summer. A graduate of College Park, he excelled in photography and com- merce, and few there are who haven’t been entranced by bargains in microscopes, stetho- scopes and hemocytometers. Appreciation of these talents has earned him the position of treasurer to Phi Delta Epsilon and photog- raphy editor for the yearbook. During his senior year, Joe also handled an externship at Spring Grove Hospital in anticipation of further psychiatric training which will no doubt yield him a full and busy couch. DAVID SAMUEL RASMUSSEN-TAXDAL Dave, “Rats” or “Rats — ,” — this portly perplexing character is probably the zaniest “clown” ever to inhabit the confines of this school. During the past four years, his per- petual wisecracks, his insane laughter, his monstrous appetite and, consequently, rapidly expanding waistline, his distortion of the Eng- lish language in creating new, unheard of words, and his general air of nonchalance and happiness have broken the hum-drum mono- tony of daily school hours. Yet, in spite of this aberration toward the lighter side, there lies within him a deep sense of responsibility and earnestness in his work, (as exemplified by his acceptance into AOA), often missed in the cursory glance. Wherever Dave goes in his specialty, his parting will be our loss — for with him will go a source of happiness and laughter, so soothing to the troubled mind. 49 WILLIAM DANIEL ROSSON Bill, born in Virginia but now residing at Hyattsville, Maryland came to us from College Park where he earned his B.S. degree. A conscientious, hard working 28 year old lad, Bill has found time during the last two years of school to extern at Lutheran Hospital in OB- GYN, as well as be an active member of Phi Delta Epsilon. During the summers, stripped of his academic garb of suitcoat and tie, he took up the tools of a workman as a productive citizen of our society. All too brief periods of relaxation find Bill enjoying music, watercolor painting and the company of his fiancee, Elaine. He is a classmate in whom many have found the sterling qualities of kindness and generosity and who will surely succeed either in OB-GYN or General Practice. JULIAN WARD REED Jule is the lad with the quick comeback. He was born in Frederick but quickly moved to Baltimore when four, to avoid being classified as a rube. After a premedical education and 21 months in the Navy, Jule established him- self as one of the popular members of our class, utilizing his quick wit and talent at mimi- cry to delight the class. None of us will forget his classical imitation of Dr. (what’s that) Harne or the repartee with Taxdal. Jule joined the ranks of the married men by tying the nuptial knot with his college sweetheart, Corrine, after the freshman year, and now has the distinction of having a schoolteacher wife. Jule intends to go into Psychiatry after several years of General Practice, and he’s certain to achieve success. 50 BELLA FAYE SCHIMMEL Bella interrrupted her peripatetic itinerary long en ough on March 30, 1928, to allow the establishment of permanent residence in Bal- timore. After a period of uneventful child- hood and later differentiation, Bella’s wander- lust carried her to the University of Michigan, where she obtained her B.S. in 1948. Having conquered North America, this slim traveler set sail for distant shores — clocking off mile- age in numerous European countries; while in Holland, Bella attended the International Med- ical Students Clinical Congress as representa- tive of the Student AMA. Seemingly abound- ing with energy, she finds time amidst this intense schedule to qualify for Alpha Omega Alpha, to be class secretary for three years, and to pursue a variegated pattern of hobbies. Whatever her final choice, Pediatrics, Medi- cine, or Public Health, Bella is sure to make a substantial contribution. JOHN OLIVER SHARRETT Jack was born in his present hometown of Cumberland, Maryland on March 25, 1923. The path which led him to medicine was a devious one, including a year at Mercersburg Academy, four as a fighter pilot with the Army Air Corps and four at the University of Vir- ginia. Summers have found Jack increasing his knowledge in many spheres; his most note- worthy vacation accomplishments were as a “seaman” on the Old Bay Line, as a technician at Sinai Hospital and as a relief doctor in a Virginia coal mining town. A firm believer in his own convictions and ideals, Jack has leveled many a verbal barrage at both in- structor and classmate alike; however, spare time finds him quite docile, fishing or hunting with his wife Evelyn in some far-off country wayside. General Surgery is to be his careeer. 51 RICHARD ARNOLD SINDLER On September 3, 1927, the Sindler assets were increased by one Richard Arnold. Rich received his A.B. from Johns Hopkins Uni- versity in 1948, having escaped from the para- mecia, dogfish and Drosophila long enough to have played lacrosse, served as a Midshipman in the Merchant Marine, and to have made life more bearable for many of the Baltimore maidens. Similarly, he worked at Woman’s hospital, and for a change of atmosphere was camp doctor at a Girl’s camp in ’51. As was inevitable in this sea of female contacts, Dick was wed tc Mary Lee Jones on October 7, 1950. Besides planning to continue as first man in the Sindler household and to tinker with his allergic dermatitis, Richard also looks forward to a career in plastic surgery. MAHLON JAMES SHOFF On October 1, 1925, the Shoffs of Wilming- ton, Delaware noticed a fresh eruption which was soon to be named Mahlon. He was edu- cated at the University of Delaware, leaving only long enough to enter the Infantry where he sat out the great conflict in a German prison camp learning the aphorism “Nicht Karzinom, aber besser heraus.” Life really be- gan for Bud on July 16, 1949 when he cast aside Smoot for his charming wife Margaret. Mahlon spent the summer of 1950 at the Uni- versity Skin Clinic in the fast company of “Pop,’’ Pete and Zilch; the following summer he was a member of the USPHS at City Hos- pital. Admitting to an interest in tropical fish, photography, and record collecting, Bud also finds relaxation as a member of Nu Sigma Nu. His exact future in medicine is as yet un- decided. 52 URSULA TRAUGOTT SLAGER The otherwise bleak 1920’s in Frankfurt, Germany were brightened by the arrival of Ursula Traugott. In the course of some rather stormy political changes the Traugott’s saw fit to leave the Fatherland and become an American asset in 1939. Assimilation was rapid for the lady in question and after re- ceiving an A.B. at Wellesley, Urs joined the class of ’52 at Maryland. This lavish associa- tion with males was not without effect and the name was changed to Slager in 1949. Ex- tracurricular accomplishments while at medi- cal school include a summer at the Pavlovian lab at Johns, Hopkins Hospital, a fearless agil- ity in maneuvering a bicycle through Balti- more traffic, and a scoliosis to the left from the ever-present shoulder bag. Urs plans ulti- mately to raise Slagers and to have a career in Pathology. BOYLSTON DANDRIDGE SMITH, JR. On November 3, 1921, already dapper and professional, Boylston Dandridge Smith began life by quite understandably changing his name to “B.D.” We first met B.D. as we entered the second year, after he had been broadened by Duke and West Virginia Universities and had taken part in the European theatre of World War II. He had no difficulties in be- coming an integral part of the class of ’52 after having lost two years because of illness. Although consistently a hard working student whose medicine is diluted only by an occasion- al round of golf and by his wife Margaret, B.D.’s ultimate goal is somewhat protean — to do General Practice in Towson, Maryland. 53 AUBREY CANNON SMOOT, JR. When the renowned Smoot family of Dela- ware felt the presence of Auhrey to be im- minent they came to Baltimore for the neces- sary medical attention, and on November 18, 1925 this descendant of the famed tariff-bill writer arrived duty free. He soon returned to the home state to grow into impetuous man- hood and to be educated at the University of Delaware, his schooling being interrupted by a 32 month hitch with the United States Navy. Although “Smootie” has shown real ability and promise in things medical, we will remember him most vividly for his rather difficult early morning adjustments to the sequelae of the occasional nocturnal indulgences. We’re sure that his decision to do General Practice in Georgetown, Delaware will be reflected by more Georgetonians attaining a greater life expectancy. GEORGE HERBERT SMITH On April 14, 1921 the population of Brewer, Maine was significantly increased by the ar- rival of George. The Smiths soon decided that George was no small town boy and the entire family moved to Weeks Mills, Maine. During the recent war he was a member of the U.S. Corps of Engineers who felt that a childhood in Maine was excellent preparation for several years service in Panama. A graduate of Clark University, George always made his presence felt by his ability to bring New England humor to Lombard and Greene Streets. During his stay in Baltimore he became the treasurer of Nu Sigma Nu and spent odd moments tending those at Relay Sanitorium who had switched too vigorously to Seagrams. George’s future plans include a career in Psychiatry — loca- tion undetermined. 54 NORTON SPRITZ Twenty four years ago on June 19 a despondent stork, tormented by the incessant chatter and plethora of questions from its pas- senger, dropped Norty with a sigh of relief on the Spritz household. There he continued his provocative queries until his parents referred the education of their precocious youngster to Johns Hopkins, where he successfully received his B.A. in 1948. Norty spent his summers while at Medical School working for the Maryland State Health Department and at Trudeau Tubercular Sanitorium at Lake Saranac. While claiming membership in Phi Delta Ep- silon, he is also a key holder of AO A. Norty has endeared himself to the entire class by his warmness, charming sagacity, and quick wit, and we predict for him a bright future in his selected field of Internal Medicine. ALVIN ABRAHAM STAMBLER Very shortly after his birth on May 7, 1927, A1 discovered that life at and on the tennis court was an enjoyable one and proceeded to smash the white ball past most of his neigh- bors. Between sets he managed an A.B. degree at the University of Maryland and served in both the United States Maritime Service and Army. Since his arrival at medical school, Al’s course has been characterized by a rapid as- cendancy in academic and fraternal circles. Among his achievements are included the presidency of the Phi Delta Epsilon, the vice- presidency of Alpha Omega Alpha, and a scho- lastic record which reflects his charactertistic diligence and determination. His knowledge of medicine in general and his understanding of people will make A1 an outstanding Internist in Baltimore. 55 ROBERT JAMES TRACE Bob, although claiming Frederick, Maryland as his birthplace, hails from the heart of America’s dairyland, Seymour, Wisconsin. Following in the footsteps of several genera- tions of physicians, he received his premedical education at the University of Wisconsin, but then decided to travel east to Maryland for his formal training. Before this episode of higher learning, Bob achieved the rare distinction of having spent three years in the infantry with- out bettering his rank as a private. This select dresser, a confirmed bachelor, devotes his lei- sure time to higher music and innumerable weekends have been spent in New York City attending operatic productions and mingling with well known performers. Bob’s convictions in his own abilities and his prowess in surgi- cal technique will carry him far in his chosen field of Gynecology. CHARLES RAY STARLING After what we’re sure was a long, slow, easy delivery young Charlie caught his first glimpse of the Confederacy on December 9, 1923. A real son of North Carolina, he at- tended the states’ University and Medical School, but in September of 1950 saw the light and was “promoted” to the University of Maryland Medical School where he has in- gratiated his classmates with his wonderfully easy-going, but effective, manner. On June 22, 1949 a fellow North Carolinian with ex- cellent taste rescued Charlie from bachelor- hood and although no census changes have been reported to date, we’re sure that parent- hood will one day be numbered amon g the Starlings’ accomplishments. Another achieve- ment that he’s certain to gain is success in his chosen specialty of Internal Medicine. BELK CONNOR TROUTMAN A little guy with a big smile characterizes Belk. Coming to us from North Carolina at the beginning of the junior year, he became adapted to the new environment quickly and in short order was one of the “gang” of the “Lower-End of the Alphabet” group. A native of Addor, North Carolina, Belk was trained at Ripon College, Wisconsin and the University of North Carolina. Also four years of his life were consumed by the Army. Possessor of a countenance, described by many women as “cute” or “just darling,” and owner of an extreme good nature with a perpetual warm- ing smile, Trout was quick to leave the bache- lor ranks, having been married in Flint, Michi- gan in 1946. We are quite certain that suc- cess will attend Belk in whatever small town he practices as a G.P. CARLOS NATHANIEL VICENS Carlos, known to some as Pili, is one of the several representatives of Puerto Rico in this class. His birthplace and hometown is Ciales, Puerto Rico, and he received his premedical education at the University of Puerto Rico. Probably the most subdued and least emotion- al of our Latin American colleagues, Carlos is more apt to be quiet and industrious in his work. Extremely neat in appearance and al- ways well dressed, this unmarried young senor’s interest in the opposite sex will in- evitably lead to the demise of his bachelor- hood. Any left-over spare time is utilized at the cinema, which he attends with surprising regularity. Carlos is a true hometown boy, having spent each summer vacation in Puerto Rico and planning to “metastasize” there to do General Practice. 57 HARRY MARTIN WALSH President Walsh, the pride of Chestertown on the Eastern Shore, spent some time in the Navy as Deck Officer and “Frogman,” later received his B.S. from Washington College in 1948. Little did we dream when Harry was elected president in the sophomore year that he would preside for 3 consecutive terms. We will long remember his tireless efforts in re- vamping schedules, pleading and bartering with professors, cancelling and adjusting quiz- zes, staging numerous parties, aiding in devel- oping a new intern plan, and in general mak- ing life for us as students more enjoyable. An avid sportsman, a terramycin “addict,” a born leader with innumerable close friends, Harry has a bright future ahead in Gynecology. However, his personal ambition in having the last retort in an argument with Wildberger, will doubtlessly never be fulfilled. SCOTT PYPER WALLACE Honesty, industry, religion — these three words characterize the attributes of Scotty Wallace, an outstanding example of the Mormon doctrine. Born and reared in Salt Lake City, Utah, he was educated at the Uni- versity of Utah, having previously spent sev- eral years with Military Intelligence in Japan and Korea. Those who have known Scotty well and who have worked closely with him, have been impressed with his high standard of morals and devotion to his religion, with his tireless efforts in the completion of every task, with his unquestionable honesty and with the warmth of his friendship. We have indeed been fortunate to have such a person within our ranks and we know for certain that Scotty will be an outstanding G.P. when he returns to practice in his beloved Utah. BRYAN POPE WARREN, JR. Bryan P. follows a family tradition of study- ing medicine and is a member of the well- known Warren clan of Laurel, Maryland. He is probably the most “disorganized” individual in the class. A typical scene is Bryan with his stethoscope looped thru the buttonhole of his jacket or hung around his neck, both hands filled with books, lunch or any imaginable object, charging madly to some forgotten des- tination leaving his path strewn with bruised and disheveled classmates. His most infamous deed occurred during the pitch of excitement just prior to the Clinical Path final, when Bryan barged into the ladies’ washroom in Bressler not realizing the room was occupied until the embarrassing act was completed. This new addition to the Warren medical cartel has ambitions in either Psychiatry, Medicine or Pediatrics, or all three. JOHN LORD WATTERS Big Jack is one of the few men to support a family of five while attending . and com- pleting medical school. A dyed-in-the-wool North Carolinian, he served four years in the Air Force, attained the rank of Captain, and having been discharged, finished his premedi- cal training in two years at the University of North Carolina. Jack started his family career in 1944 when he married Beth; since then they have added John Jr., Waddell and Liza to the growing household. An amiable easy- going southerner, an accomplished bridge player, and an outdoor lover, John L. is typi- cally calm and efficient in completing his work, sincere in his friendships and mature in his personality. We wish Jack success in his gener- al practice in some small community back in Carolina. 59 ALBERT JOHN WILDBERGER A1 was born in Baltimore County and now resides in Overlea, Maryland. Before coming to medical school he spent two years as a Pharmacist’s mate in the Navy and attended Western Maryland College. A philosophic in- dividual with a remarkable amount of insight into human behavior and problems, A1 enjoys life to the utmost by calmly overcoming ob- stacles as they present themselves; he is defi- nitely not a candidate for essential hyperten- sion. He possesses a deep sense of humor and a lightning-like retort when engaging in re- partee (especially with Harry Walsh, whom he has humbled on infinite occasions). Recently, Albert J. has acquired a yearning for anesthesi- ology, but we feel certain he will ultimately practice as a “family doctor” somewhere in this state. HOWARD NELSON WEEKS This carefree ladies’ man, who makes his home in Hagerstown, Maryland was born in West Virginia 26 years ago. “Howie” or “Smiley” or “Slippery” (the latter name being attached for various reasons while he externed at Peninsula General) attended Franklin and Marshall before coming to Baltimore. During the past four .years Smiley has been seen mostly as an externe at Franklin Square Hospital and as a nocturnal visitor to the majority of nurses’ homes throughout the city. An agile hoofer on the dance floor, a veritable champion at table tennis and an efficient student, Howard with his infectious grin and cordial personality has made many lasting friendships. His ambition is “to be happy as a competent G.P. in some peaceful, progressive community.” 60 JOHN ROSS WILKINSON, JR. Quiet, unassuming John comes from North Carolina where he attended the undergraduate school and the medical school of the University of North Carolina before joining our class in the junior year. Jokingly dubbed “Consump- tion” because of his physical appearance and perpetual cough, John nevertheless laughs it off and continue s to advocate B.C.G. Although demure and reserved in his daily academic work, it is whispered that nightfall and women bring about a complete reversal of his personality. Little known to his colleagues is his accomplished technique at the keyboard, an art developed while in college. Here’s a vote for John R. to become the most bashful G.P. in North Carolina. DONALD ANTHONY WOLFEL The story of Don is essentially “Local Boy Makes Good.” It’s been a gradual transition, since July 25, 1928, that has carried him from the farm near Catonsville, thru the sandlot leagues of Maryland, to Medical School. Hard- ly out of diapers, he and his older brother began tossing a ball around until the family became well known in local baseball circles; and he continued to sharpen his ball handling at College Park, from which he received his B.S. in ’48. Between innings, Don mana ged to spend two summers baling hay, another snoop- ing for the Public Health Service, all the while maintaining excellent grades. The future points to Internal Medicine for Don, but he also expects to be planting potatoes on the side somewhere in the wilderness near Ellicott City. 61 WILLIAM ROGER WOLVERTON “Suppose a patient walked into my office with . . or “Suppose I had a case of . . these phrases immediately characterize jovial, cigar-smoking “Willie” Wolverton, better known to everyone as “The Count.” A native of West Virginia, Willie attended Potomac State College and West Virginia University and spent several years in the Merchant Marine before arriving at medical school. His summers have been spent at assisting his relatives practice medicine in West Virginia. Willie will be remembered for his pungent cigars, for his jokes and limericks, for his recitation of “Dangerous Dan McGrew,” for his hilarious behavior at parties, and for his condemnation of classes and professors. “The Count’s” ambition is to own the biggest limousine in West Vir- ginia. He plans to practice internal medi- cine with his father and brother in his home state. INTERNSHIPS 1952-1953 ADAMS, CHARLES B., JR. University Hospital Baltimore, Maryland ADELSTEIN, BENJAMIN A.

Front row, left to right: Harrison Langral, Edward Spudis, Jack Clift. HARRISON LANGRALL President EDWARD SPUDIS V ice-President JACK CLIFT Secretary TIM HERBERT T reasurer ROBERT BERKOW WILLIAM KISER Student Government Leaving the preclinical years for their first year of clinical study, the Class of 1953 reelected Harrison Langrall as president and began pondering the com- plexities of the Junior schedule. The ninety -four men and one woman of the class were divided into sections for instruction at Baltimore City and Uni- versity Hospitals, for the many lectures in Chemical Hall and for the numerous examinations that charac- terize this year. However, in off time the class held periodic scientific seminars and formed active basket- ball and softball teams. In addition, the class sup- ported and became responsible for the success of the Student American Medical Association chapter here. 65 Louis Arp Richard Baldwin James Banks Grace Bastian George Beck Scott Berkeley Robert Berkow Samuel Blumenfeld James Boggs Joseph Bove George Brinkley David Bulluck Thomas Burkart Walter Byerly Bernard Byrnes Charles Carroll Donald Carter John Clift John Codington Jerome Cohen Salomon Colon-Lugo Wyand Doerner Rowland Dowell John Dumler Jules Edlow Harry Eye Hugh Firor Leonard Flax Sylvan Frieman Frederick Garlock Joseph Garrison George Gevas Joseph Gillotte Leonard Glick Robert Goldstein John Hartman John Heisse Kenneth Henson Thomas Herbert Charles Hess George Himmelwright William Holder Earl Huntley Henry Jones Thomas Jones Walter Judge Werner Kaese 66 William Karn Robert Kingsbury William Kiser Arthur Knight Robert Lambert Harrison Langrall Benjamin Lee Herbert Leighton Robert Levine Rafael Longo-Cordero Gordon Madge Jesse McCracken Archibald McFadden Ronald Mendelsohn John Metcalf Benjamin Middleton James Might Leslie Miles George Miller Norman Miller Joseph Palmisano George Peck James Powder Corbett Quinn James Read Joe Richardson Lewis Richmond James Rowe Richard Schindler Joseph Shuman Robert Singleton Thomas Skaggs William Slasman William Smith Edward Spudis William Templeton Martin Treiber James Troxel William Tyson Arnold Vance Herbert Walter Jack Watson Karl Weaver Joel Webster Harry Weeks Israel Weiner 67 fr W f i -rrr 68 SOPHOMORES Left to Right: Walter Smyth, Beverly Berck, Norman Forrest, George Bauernschub, John Gessner.

It was the one hundred forty sixth class in as many years to begin the study of medicine in the fifth oldest medical school in the United States. The majority of this class were newly graduated from college and quickly be- came acquainted with the serious intent and demand- ing study imposed by the medical school curriculum. One hundred four students comprise the class; four women and one hundred men. Sixty-nine of the stu- dents are residents of Maryland and the remainder from other states.

Sir William Osier DEPARTMENT OF ANATOMY Students at work in the dissecting room. Circa 1885. Antedating the granting of the University Charter by almost two decades the first anatomical in- struction in the state of Maryland was given by Dr. Andrew Wiesenthal to a class of fifteen in the year 1789. It is fitting that he should be the pioneer, for he was the son of Charles Frederick Wiesenthal, patron of the first attempt to regulate the quality -of medical practice in Baltimore. Dr. John Beale Davidge began private lectures in anatomy, surgery, midwifery, and physiology which were continued and assimilated into the university when it was chartered December 18, 1807. The destruction of Dr. Davidge’s anatomical theater by a mob due to public sentiment against dissection has been mentioned earlier. Ten days after the charter -of the medical school was granted a meeting was held in Dr. Davidge’s home and he and Dr. James Cocke were appointed joint professors of anatomy, surgery and physi- ology. Cocke was a brilliant anatomist, a Virginia gentleman, and had been a pupil of Sir Astley Coop- er at Guys Hospital, London. However he received his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in 1804. In 1812 Davidge devoted his time to obstetrics and medicine and Dr. Cocke continued in anatomy until his death at age 33 in 1813. Davidge was forced to resume the teaching of anatomy due to this unfortunate event. During the winter of 1817-1818 he fell and fractured his femur. Out of this event appeared a talented replacement in the person of John D. Godman, who as a senior student delivered the anatomy lectures, with such force and ability that the student body clamored for him to remain on the staff. In 1819 when the chair was vacant he was rejected because of his youth. His brilliant career in later years is recorded in a short sketch in Cordell’s history of the university. In 1821 one of the most picturesque characters in the history of the university, Dr. Granville Sharp Pattison, was appointed to the chair in surgery, which in these times included anatomical duties. Pattison was a Scot and had been associated with the distinguished anatomist Allen Burns of the Andersonian Institute in Glasgow. He brought with him a large collection of anatomical specimens prepared by Burns. This collection was purchased by the university for $8,000 and thus began the anatomical museum. Earlier, in 1820, Pattison had applied for the chair of surgery at the University of Pennsylvan- ia, however his appointment was bitterly opposed by one Nathaniel Chapman, and he was not awarded the position. Pattison drafted a fiery letter to Chapman which was ignored. Pattison then sought Dr. Patrick Macaulay as a second and challenged Chapman to a duel, but the latter declined. In September of 1821 Chapman pub- lished and distributed a paper entitled, “Official Transcript of Proceedings in Case of Divorce of Andrew Ure M.D. versus Catherine Ure for Adul- 78 tery with Granville Sharp Pattison.” This docu- ment rests in the library of the Maryland His- torical Society. Several years later Pattison met Chapman and his brother-in-law General Thomas Cadwalader on the street in Philadelphia and publicly insulted Chapman. Cadwalader challeng- ed Pattison and in the quiet Delaware country- side Pattison’s shot shattered the General’s “pistol arm,” himself suffering only a hiatus in his coat tail. Besides being the “dueling anatomist” Patti- son was a teacher of rare ability and intellect. Nathan R. Smith delivered the anatomy lec- tures from 1827 until 1829 when John D. Wells was appointed professor of anatomy. Here was an ideal anatomist, a forceful orator, and a polished gentleman. Less than two months after the close of his first term Wells died of tuber- culosis, his position being filled by Dr. Benja- min Lincoln as lecturer. Dr. Thomas Wright held the chair for one year in 1832, at best was an uninspired anatomist. He was succeeded as professor by Eli Geddings who lectured until resignation in 1837, then fol- lowed Drs. Henry Baxley and later William N. Baker. It is thought that dissection became a required subject about 1848 and that the university was the first school in America to require practical anatomy for graduation, the seeds for this having been sown as early as 1833. In 1842 the distinguished Dr. Joseph Roby became professor of anatomy and held this title Railing in Anatomical Hall initialled by generations of medical students. until 1860. Dr. Roby had received his M.D. from Harvard in 1831. Oliver Wendell Holmes had received his anatomical instruction from Roby. Dr. William A. Hammond next occupied the chair in 1860. In his brief professorship Hammond in- troduced the study of histology into the cur- riculum, for the first time in the United States. He resigned the chair in 1861 to become Sur- geon General of the Army. In later years he founded the Army Medical Museum and the Med- ical Library in Washington, D.C. During his life- time he was also a prolific writer, a president of the American Neurological Association and one of the founders of the Post-Graduate Medical School of New York. (1881). It is of note that during 1848 gas was installed in the dissecting rooms »o that the students might dissect at night and have the day free for classes. Dr. Christopher Johnson was appointed profes- sor of anatomy and physiology in 1863; how- ever in 1869 he accepted the chair in surgery and Dr. Francis T. Miles was appointed profes- sor of general, descriptive and surgical anatomy. Miles turned to physiology and was succeeded by J. Edwin Michael in 1880. Michael and Miles temporarily guided the anatomy department until a successor could be found. In 1882 the Anatomy Law was passed.

This is shown by a statement in “Some Account of the Rise and Progress of the Uni- versity of Maryland” by Nathaniel Potter in 1838. “They (Drs. Davidge and Potter) came to the conclusion that the science of medicine could not be successfully taught under the usual or- ganization of medical schools. That without the aids of physiology and pathology, either associated with anatomy or as separate chairs or institutes, the philosophy of the body in sickness or in health could not be understood. This formed the basis of our scheme and the ground on which we erected a school.” However, it is interesting to note that if any instruction in pathology was attempted it was probably given by the incum- bents in the chair of the institutes of medicine. The Almshouse of Baltimore, later to become known as Bay View, and now Baltimore City Hos- pitals, was for many years the o nly source oi pathological and normal specimens for the medi- cal school. However, the nucleus of the pathologi- cal museum of the university, and for that matter the first semblance of a museum in Mary- land, was the acquisition of “upwards of 1000 selected morbid and health specimens” from the collection of the anatomist Allan Burns of Glasgow. This material was purchased from Burns’ pupil, Dr. Granville Sharpe Pattison, who was at that time appointed to the chair of surgery at the uni- versity. Through the years, the need for a chair in pathology was realized, and in 1847 a lectureship in pathological anatomy, under G. W. Milten- berger, was established. This marked the begin- ning of the separation of the teaching of pathology from that of the clinical branches. However, until the latter part of the nineteenth century, the re- sponsibility for the teaching of pathology continued to rest almost entirely with the clinicians. In- struction in pathology was considered entirely sec- ondary and a part of anatomy, physiology, sur- gery, or medicine. HUGH R. SPENCER M.D. Professor of Pathology and Head of the Department A native of Baltimore, Dr. Spencer graduated from the Baltimore Medical College in 1910 and then studied at the Johns Hopkins Medical School for a few years. He received his appointment to the Department in 1913 and, except for a period of military service in World War I, he has been actively engaged in the teaching of Pathology ever since. In 1855 Christopher Johnston became lecturer in experimental physiology and microscopy and provided the impetus for microscopic study in pathology at the university. William Alexander Hammond, who succeeded Johnston had three mic- roscopes placed in the museum for the use of students in 1861, however their routine use prob- ably did not occur until many years later. From 1866-1881 pathology was under the super- vision of Francis Donaldson. The course at that time consisted of weekly lectures and demonstra- tions with autopsy material obtained from Bay View and other hospitals in the city. Donaldson was succeeded by I. E. Atkinson, who remained as professor of pathology from 1881-1886. Two graduates of the University of Maryland 93 have been outstanding in this field. N. G. Keirle, following his graduation in 1858, was resident physician at the Baltimore Almshouse. There he became interested in pathology and performed a large number of autopsies. In 1884 he was ap- pointed demonstrator of pathology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and later became professor of pathology and medical jurisprudence. He was instrumental, with John Ruhrah, in having the Pasteur Institute established in connection with the College of Physicians and Surgeons and the City Hospitals. His principal writings dealt with rabies. W. T. Councilman graduated in 1878. After further study at Johns Hopkins University, Marine Hospital, Bay View, and in Europe, he taught classes in pathology at the university and at the College of Physicians and Surgeons. He joined Welch at Johns Hopkins Medical School in 1886, became associate professor of pathology there in 1890, and in 1892 was made the Shattuck Professor of pathological anatomy at Harvard Medical School. From 1890 to 1913 the three schools which ultimately were to consolidate into the present school had separate departments, and instruction was given in both gross and microscopic pathology but there was no very close connection between hospitals and the various departments of pathol- ogy. The percentage of autopsies was never very high and instruction from the standpoint -of fresh material was somewhat deficient. Also the teach- ing in these schools was with few exceptions in the hands of clinicians who had had some train- ing in pathology and who were willing to devote a portion of their time to the instruction of stu- dents in this branch. The final consolidation in 1915 marked the beginning of the employment of full-time teach- ers. Heads of the department of pathology from 1915 have been: W. R. Stokes 1915-1919, and Standish McCleary 1919-1921. Dr. Hugh R. Spen- cer, present head of the department, has held this position since 1921. Sufficient material for student instruction has been provided since that time from autopsies performed at University and Mercy Hospitals with supplements from City Hos- pitals. The Clinical Pathological Conference was inaugurated in 1913. Visual education has been the most recent improvement in teaching. The department now consists of seven full-time and seventeen part-time pathologists. Studying microscopic sections of pathological anatomy is an important part of the course in Pathology. Each student keeps a book of sketches illustrating typical disease processes seen on microscopic study of pathological sections. Dr. Polanco, instructor in pathology, aids the stu- dents by explaining and identifying microscopic struc- tures. 94 Dr. Polanco demonstrates pathology on the dead body.

Finesinger as its first full-time professor, the department of psychiatry has emerged as a major teaching unit in the medical school cur- riculum. Prior to this time, teaching had been largely confined to didatic lectures supplemented by clinics at local mental hospitals. Service to the community, however, was rendered by the Mental Hygiene Clinic, located at the University Hospital Dispensary. This clinic was staffed by psychiatrists who also received appointments in the department of psychiatry. For many years a close affilia- tion has been maintained between the School of Medicine and the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hos- pital. A Director of the latter hospital, Dr. Ross McFee Chapman was appointed the first professor of psychiatry in 1923. He continued in this capa- city until his death in 194$. Since Dr. Finesinger’s arrival sweeping changes have been made in the department. Didactic lec- tures have been replaced by group discussions and seminars. One month of the senior year has been devoted to psychiatry. The staff of full- time and part-time psychiatrists, social workers and psychologists has been expanded. In addition, the consultation service has been augmented and the university has taken over active support of the out-patient clinic from the Mental Hygiene Society. A large research program is now under way. Nearing completion and expected to be in oper- ation by August 1952 is the 102 bed Psychiatric Institute adjoining the University Hospital. The Institute will be equipped to serve as a receiving and treatment unit for psychiatric and psychoso- matic disorders with a large department devoted to child psychiatry. New clinics devoted to re- habilitation, alcoholism and delinquency are to be added. The Institute will be equipped to train fifteen resident physicians and eight fellows in psychiatry, in addition to nurses, public health officers and medical students.

FINESINGER, B.A., M.A., M.D. Professor of Psychiatry and Head of the Department Head of the Department since 1950, Dr. Finesinger was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania, later studied at Johns Hopkins University and Medical School and did postgraduate work at Harvard Medical School, Vienna and under Pavlov at Leningrad. He was a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, during the war be- came consultant to numerous federal agencies and served as Port Executive to the Port of Boston, War Shipping Administration.

Thomas first delivered a series of lectures on the diseases of women. For many years this branch received but little attention in the medical curriculum. The department of gynecology actually began in the year 1867, for in that year a new chair of diseases of women and children was founded, to which Dr. William T. Howard was elected. This was the first distinct recognition of this department as an independent branch by any medical school in the United States. Dr. Howard was co-founder of the Hospital for the Women of Maryland, a founder of the Baltimore Gynecological Society and its sec- ond president, a founder of the American Gyneco- logical Society and its president in 1885, and also a president of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. He resigned in 1897 after a tenure of 30 years and became Professor Emeritus. He was succeeded by Thomas A. Ashby, a widely-known editor, teacher and surgeon. It is claimed that Dr. Ashby performed the first success- ful laparotomy for ruptured tubal pregnancy in the State of Maryland. During Ashby’s professorship Diseases of Women first came to be taught as a separate specialty. Associated with Dr. Ashby was Dr. J. Mason Hundley Sr. He served first as chief of the gynecologic clinic and later as clinical professor of diseases of women, a position which he held for 30 years. Dr. Hundley graduated from the University, late became interested in gynecol- ogy and studied at Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic and under Wertheim in Europe. Following Ashby’s retirement in 1916, Dr. Wil- liam S. Garderner was appointed professor of gynecology. Under Dr. Garderner’s leadership the department developed, an oncology division was f ounded, bed capacity was increased and facil- ities were provided for the treatment of female urological conditions. Members of the department have been very active in research and have made many contributions to gynecological literature. In 1936 Dr. J. Mason Hundley Jr. was appointed to the professorship. ienior students observe operations upon patients they have previously worked upon in the G4N Clinic. 101 J. Mason Hundley, Jr., R.B., M.A., M.D. Professor of Gynecology and Head of Department Dr. Hundley was born in Baltimore, received his A.B. and M.A. from St. Johns College and ob- tained his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He studied in Germany under Wertheim and then came to University Hospital. He was appointed to the Department of Gynecology in 1922 and has been Head of the Department since 1936.

Davidge from 1807 until 1812. Davidge had long been interested in obstetrics and had taught this subject for several years in his private lecture hall prior to the founding of the medical school. It was not until 1812 that the first full professor of obstetrics was appointed. Dr. Richard W. Hall held this position until his death in 1847. In addition to establishing a teach- ing program in obstetrics and fulfilling the duties of an extensive private practice he held the posi- tion of Dean of the medical school and secretary of the Board of Regents of the University. From 1847 until 1858 Dr. Richard Thomas, a well-known minister of the Society of Friends, served as professor of obstetrics. A kindly gentle- man and skillful obstetrician, Dr. Thomas was held in high regard by his colleagues. Dr. George W. Miltenberger succeeded Dr. Thomas upon his resignation in 1858. Dr. Milten- berger, who is reputed to have had the largest obstetrical practice in the city, was regarded by his students as one of the best teachers at the Univer- sity. He kept a stable of 18 horses to service his carriage which was to be seen on the streets of Baltimore both day and night. En route to his professional calls the doctor prepared his lectures and kept abreast of obstetrics by reading the med- ical journals. He is credited with the introduction and popularization of the ophthalmoscope in Bal- timore. Dr. Jacob E. Michael, a graduate of Princeton and well-known as a surgeon, served as professor of obstetrics on Dr. Miltenberger’s retirement in 1890. He was Dean of the medical school for several years and President of the Medical and Chirurgi- cal Faculty of Maryland at the time of his death. Dr. Leonard Ernest Neale, nephew of Dr. Mil- tenberger, was the type of professor referred to as a “born teacher.” He introduced the use of the obstetrical mannikin and informal class discussions to supplement the time-honored didactic lectures. George W. Dobbin graduated from the Univer- sity in 1894 and was examination medalist. In 1899 he was elected to the chair of obstetrics in the College of Physicians and Surgeons which in 1905 was consolidated with the chair of gynecology. From the Baltimore Medical College’s merger with the University of Maryland in 1913 came a small group of able teachers, among whom was Dr. J. M. H. Rowland. In 1916 he was concur- rently made Dean of the medical school and Pro- fessor of Obstetrics, further emphasizing the inti- mate relationship the department of obstetrics has maintained with the school. Dr. Rowland held Louis H. Douglass, M.D. Professor of Obstetrics and Head of Department Dr. Douglass, born in Danville, Virginia, received his medical degree from the University of Mary- land School of Medicine. He was appointed to the Department of Obstetrics in 1915 and has been Head of the Department since 1938. Currently Chairman of the Section on Obstetrics and Gynecol- ogy of the American Medical Association, he is also Vice-President of the American Academy of Ob- stetrics and Gynecology. An organization, the Dougtricians, was formed in honor of Dr. Douglass in 1949 by former residents in obstetrics under him. both positions until his retirement. He is remem- bered for his keen clinical judgment. He was a fluent, orderly lecturer and never used notes while lecturing. Upon his retirement in 1938 Dr. Louis H. Douglass, present Head of the Department was appointed to this position. Dr. Emil Novak, author of several textbooks on gynecology, also was asso- ciated with the department for a number of years. 104 The medical student’s first acquaintance with practical obstetrics takes place in the third year at Baltimore City Hospitals.

Here it is stated that Dr. Hall, professor of midwifery and the diseases of women and children, gave a series of lectures on the diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of children. In 1867 a chair of diseases of women and children was established. It is said that this was the first of its kind to be found in the United States. Dr. William T. Howard who was elected to fill this position has been described as, “a clear and forcible teacher with a wonderfully retentive mem- ory and decided views upon medical subjects.” In 1897 diseases of children emerged as an in- dependent department and Dr. Charles Mitchell was appointed professor. Dr. Mitchell was also professor of therapeutics and clinical medicine at this time. He is said to have inspired trust and confidence as both teacher and doctor. When con- sidering a diagnostic problem he is reputed to have said to his students as prescription for the case, “less food, more water, no medicine.” Dr. Charles Lee Summers was appointed as prof- fessor of clinical pediatrics and visiting pedia- trician to the hospital in 1918. Dr. Summers had studied pediatrics in von Pirquet’s clinic in Vien- Dr. Mary Matthews demonstrates the physical examina- tion of an infant to Junior students Hartman, Gilotte, Goldstein and Glick. na and later with Ginkelstein in Berlin. When the names of those who had been of greatest service to the Children’s Hospital in Vienna were inscribed on its wall, Summers and one other were the only Americans so honored. He organized, solicited funds for, and administered the babies’ and chil- dren’s clinic at University Hospital and was largely responsible for its rapid growth and activity. First appointed to the position of professor of pediatrics at the medical school was Dr. John Ruhrah, in 1916. Dr. Ruhrah was a widely known pediatrician, a president of the American Pedi- iatric Society, American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Library Association and Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. He was the au- thor of several books on pediatrics and contributed extensively to journals. He has been described as a cultured gentleman, well-travelled and exception- ally competent professionally. In 1927 Dr. C. Loring Joslin became head of the department. Dr. Joslin was interested in nutritional problems of children and did research and writing on this subject. Dr. J. Edmund Bradley is pro- fessor of pediatrics and head of the department now and has held this position since 1948. He is one of the first full-time clinical department chiefs and devotes his time to teaching, research and ad- ministration. Dr. Bisanar discusses a case history with Junior students. 108 J.

DEPARTMENT OF MEDICINE The professorship of medicine originated with the founding of the medical school in 1807. Dr. George Brown, the first professor, resigned before any classes were held. This was said not to be due to any lack of interest in the school, for he was President of the Board of Regents from 1807 to 1812, but rather to a disinclination toward teach- ing. He had allowed his name to be used on the Charter founding the Medical College because of his prominence in the state and in order to give the advantage of his influence. Dr. Nathaniel Potter, who was appointed profes- sor of the theory and practice of medicine in 1807, was born in Easton, Talbot County, Mary- land in 1770. He received his M. D. at the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania under Benjamin Rush. He was popular with his students who regarded him as an infallible authority and his fame gradually spread throughout the country. His diagnoses were made only by the aid of the eye and the sense of touch and his treatments consisted mainly of the lancet and calomel. The editor of several medical journals and textbooks, his most famous work was a paper on the noncontagiousness of yellow fever. To obtain information for this last he repeatedly inoculated himself with the body fluids of yellow fever victims and slept for many evenings with his head swathed in a bandage soaked in the sweat of his patients. The sweat was properly supposed to be involved in the transmission of this disease. Dr. Potter was a pillar of the University. He played a belligerent role in the opposition towards the Trustees and his battle with the janitor only increased his popularity with the students. He was also known for his fondness for cards and his habit of swearing. He spiced his lectures with anecdotes which taxed the credulity of the class, to whose skepticism he would reply, “I’m d — , gen- tlemen, if it ain’t so.” He died in 1843 after serv- ing as professor of medicine for 36 years. Dr. Potter’s last years were marked by his devotion to the past and his refusal to allow the newer techni- ques of medical diagnosis and treatment to be taught at the University. From 1833 to 1836 Dr. Robley Dunglison was associated with the University as professor of mat- eria medica, hygiene and medical jurisprudence. Dr. Dunglison came from England at the age of 26 at the request of Thomas Jefferson to head the department of medicine of the University of Vir- ginia. He is best known for his medical dictionary, which went through many editions, and for numer- ous other volumes and periodicals. Dr. Joseph Roby, professor of anatomy, filled the vacancy left by Potter’s death until 1844 when Maurice C. Pincoffs, M.D. Professor of Medicine and Head of the Department Born in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Pincoffs received a B.S. degree from the University of Chicago, and his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. During the first World War he served in the AEF and received the Distinguished Service Cross and French Croix de Guerre. He was a Brigadier General in World War II in the Pacific area. He was appointed to the Department in 1922. Dr. Richard S. Steuart was elected professor. Dr. Steuart who served as aide-de-campe in the battle of North Point never lectured and resigned the same year as his appointment. He devoted his life to the treatment of the insane and was the founder of the Spring Grove Asylum. Dr. Elisha Bartlett of Massachusetts resigned from the Faculty of Pennsylvania University to ac- cept the positon of professor of medicine in 1844. Dr. Bartlett had received his medical training at Brown University and travelled widely here and abroad. He was a prolific writer, his works being 1 12 frequently quoted by Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes. After serving as professor about two years he re- signed in order to travel in Europe. Dr. William Power succeeded Bartlett. Born in Baltimore in 1813 he received his M. D. from the University of Maryland. He then went to Paris where he studied under the famous French clini- cians. In 1846 at the age of 33 he was appointed full professor of medicine, having served in other offices in the department prior to this time. Dr. Power was best known as a teacher of clinical medicine. He was the first to teach the methods of percussion and the use of the stethoscope in Baltimore. Pulmonary tuberculosis, a disease fatal to so many of the early professors of the school, brought about Dr. Power’s death in 1852. It is reported that in spite of severe hemoptysis and dyspnea he taught until the end. The vacancy was filled by Dr. Samuel Chew. Born in 1806, a native of Calvert County, he was educated at Charlotte Hall and Princeton. He graduated in Medicine at the University in 1829. Dr. Chew was known as a classical scholar and polished speaker. His most famous work was “Lec- tures on Medical Education.” Dr. Richard McSherry succeeded Dr. Chew upon the latter’s death in 1863. He was educated at Georgetown University and the University of Mary- land and served in the Mexican War under General Scott. McSherry was a versatile man; he wrote many books of travel, as well as medical works of a popular and professional nature. He was best remembered for his conservatism in medicine, a gentleman and friend of the students, with whom he was very popular. When McSherry died in 1885 Dr. Samuel Clag- gett Chew, the son of Dr. Chew, was promoted from the chair of materia medica to that of medi- cine. Dr. Chew wrote in the style of his father and contributed to the popular textbooks of medi- cine of his time. He served as head of the depart- ment until 1910. He was succeeded by Dr. Ernest Zueblin the following year. Dr. Zueblin remained for two years in this position. In 1913 Dr. Gordon Wilson was appointed to the chair of medicine. Dr. Wilson graduated from the University of Virginia in 1899; the next year was appointed resident physician in charge of Dr. William Osier’s private patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He later studied under Dr. Welch there and under Professor Chiari at Strasbourg. He was head of the department until his death in 1932. Dr. Maurice C.

John Beale Davidge and James Cocke served as co-professors of surgery, anatomy and physio- logy. In 1812 Dr. William Gibson was appointed professor of surgery. At this time Gibson was just 24 years of age but had already established a name for himself in the field of surgery. Later he resigned to accept the professorship of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Gran- ville Sharpe Pattison was appointed as his succes- sor. Dr. Pattison who was instrumental in the organization of the Infirmary was a popular and dynamic lecturer. Upon Pattison’s abrupt de- parture from Baltimore in 1826 the chair once more fell vacant. An able successor to Pattison was found in the person of Dr. Nathan Ryno Smith who was to be the dominant figure in the faculty as well as pro- fessor of surgery for 42 years. At the time of his appointment he was already a well-known figure in American medical education. The son of Nathan Smith, founder of Dartmouth and Yale medical schools, he himself was a leader in the reestablishment of the University of Vermont medi- cal school and in the organization of Jefferson Medical College. Under his tutelage the depart- ment flourished. When Smith retired due to failing health in 1896, Dr. Christopher Johnston, for many years an associate in surgery, became professor. He held this position until 1881 when Dr. Louis McLane Tiffany succeeded him. Dr. Tiffany had received his education at Cambridge, England, and his M.D. from the University of Maryland. While he was professor, developments in roentgenology and anesthesiology made possible modern elective surgery. He is noted for performing the first nephrolithotomy in the United States in 1885, for surgery on the gasserian ganglion for facial neural- gia and for bowel and pharyngeal surgery. He was a prolific contributor to scientific journals of the day. In 1897 the University Hospital was opened (now the dispensary building). There were 190 beds, and an average of 10 operations requiring anesthesia were performed each day. In 1902 Dr. Randolph Winslow, from a family of distinguished physicians in North Carolina, was appointed to succeed Dr. Tiffany. Winslow was primarily an anatomist and had been demonstrator of anatomy at the University. It is said of Dr. Winslow that he would often, in the middle of an operation, see some interesting structural detail and demonstrate it — causing his assistants to Charles Reid Edwards, M.D. Professor of Surgery and Acting Head of the Department Dr. Edwards, born in West Virginia, graduated from the University of Maryland Medical School in 1913. He was appointed to the Department in 1916. nudge him and remind him the patient was living and not a cadaver. Dr. Winslow was instrumental in raising the requirements for admission to the medical school and in lengthening the medical courses. His studies of goiter and gunshot wounds were notable. Also, he performed the second pyloric resection in the United States in 1885. In 1912 he retired. For the next 34 years Dr. Arthur M. Shipley was professor of surgery and under his guidance the department achieved its present position. With the merging of the Baltimore Medical College, College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Uni- versity in 1915-17, the total teaching plant included the University, Mercy and Bay View (now Balti- more City) Hospitals. This diversity of clinical 124 material made possible a more direct contact be- tween student and patient. Dr. Shipley used the enlarged facilities well; he taught more with patients and less with books. He examined his students personally and has left a thorough impres- sion on many of the 4,000 students whom he taught. The opening of the new University Hospital in 1934 provided great increase in the facilities for modern surgery. Four large operating rooms with a host of accessory rooms for x-ray, surgical pathology, casts, anesthetist’s equipment and four wards devoted to surgical teaching comprise part of its present plant. Dr. Shipley retired in 1948 and was succeeded by Dr. Charles Reid Edwards, present head of the department. Many new practices and advances have occurred during the 146 year span of the department of surgery. In this time have occurred the discovery of anesthetics, the establishment of aseptic and antiseptic surgery, the use of whole blood, fluids, the antibiotic drugs and military reparative sur- gery. Many separate branches of surgery have emerged and are now represented at University Hospital. Particularly noteworthy here as pioneers in their specialties are Dr. Charles Bagley, Jr., Neurosurgery and Dr. Edward Looper, Otolaryn- gology. Neurosurgical operation at University Hospital.

In general, their aims may be said to be educational, social, religious and political. In this section of Terrae Mariae Medicus each organization has expressed its aims and activities and provided a list of its members. 134 dent government Left to Right: H. Walsh, F. Nataro, S. Wallace, W. Smyth, R. Berkow, J. Gessner, W. James, W. Kiser, H. Langrall. Each of the four classes is represented in the Student Government Association by three mem- bers. During the past year the Association resumed activity, held meetings about three times a month and dealt with a wide range of projects. An ener- getic effort was made to introduce an honor system into the medical school. It was hoped, as an ex- periment, that the Freshman class would operate under such a system for one year on a trial basis. Although the project fell somewhat short of re- ceiving full cooperation, progress was made and it is hoped that a student-controlled honor system is not too far in the future. In the Spring the annual Student Council-Fac- ulty Dinner was held. At this affair a healthy exchange of constructive ideas occurred, in addi- tion to furtherance of student-faculty relations. Many student problems were brought to the atten- tion of the faculty, including plans to eliminate grade-consciousness of students, introduction of an honor system and certain changes in the curricu- lum. 135 ydinh a Ot mecici As a part of the incipient movement to raise the scholastic and scientific level of medical practice and education, Willis W. Root founded Alpha Omega Alpha, an honorary fraternity, in 1902 at the University of Illinois School of Medicine. The organization includes those undergraduates show- ing outstanding scholarship as defined in terms of aptitude, intellectual grasp, moral integrity, and mostly promise of subsequent leadership and ac- complishment, as well as graduate physicians who have demonstrated such attributes in their medical careers. As such, Alpha Omega Alpha, is a driving force in the medical school toward the higher goals of well rounded and intelligent medi- cal education, as well as integrity and creativeness among the student body and faculty. On December 9, 1949, the Beta Chapter of Mary- land was established at the University of Maryland Medical School, the chapter rights being conferred by Dr. Walter Bierring, national president. The chapter members of the new organization included fourteen members of the faculty, five graduates and twelve members of the senior class of that year. This charter group instituted many AOA activi- ties which have been continued and have represent- ed the effort of the organization to further its aims for the medical community of the University. The first lecture sponsored by the organization was given by Dr. Louis A. M. Krause in May, 1950, establishing the annual AOA spring lectureship. AOA has also established a yearly series of lec- tures covering some of the broader aspects of medical activity. Drs. Krantz, Pincoffs and Fine- singer each discussed some aspects of the problem “The ' Doctor and the Community” in the series taking place in the spring of 1951. This past year the general topic of “The Relationship of Medicine and the Medical School” was discussed in two lec- ture series by Drs. Harry B. Gordon and Dean Roberts. As an expression of the importance of active student participation in medical research, AOA has also scheduled an afternoon program dedicated to the discussion by students of projects in which they are taking part. The second such program was delivered during May of this past year. The present graduating class includes seventeen members of Alpha Omega Alpha, and their grad- uation places the responsibility for furtherance of the motto of the organization, “To be worthy to serve the suffering,” on the shoulders of the re- maining members.

Composed of 42 chapters there are over 25,000 alumni including such names as Charles H. Best, co-discoverer of insulin and Sir William Osier. The Beta Alpha Chapter of Nu Sigma Nu has been active at the University of Maryland for 48 years and includes the names of 659 members and alumni on its rolls. The chapter secured its charter in 1904 through the initiative of Major General Norman Kirk, Surgeon General of the Army during World War II. The fraternity maintains a large house, located at 922 St. Paul Street, for the purpose of meetings, Dr. Wolfe discusses recent medical trends. lectures, social activities and the housing of mem- bers. Numerous social and academic activities were held this year. The annual Christmas Dinner- Dance, preceded by a dinner and party for orphans was held, in addition to an annual Alumni Banquet, Spring Formal Dance and other dances throughout the year. A number of orientation smokers were sponsored for incoming freshman students. The educational program consisted of lectures pre- sented on various topics by physicians in this area, among them Drs. Otto Brantigan, Harry Robinson, Jr., Alfred Blalock, Charles Reid Edwards, Harry Hull, John Savage, John Wagner, Milton Sacks and others. An active Alumni Association supports the chap- ter in its activities. Dr. Charles Reid Edwards is President of this Alumni Association. Cardiac surgery by Dr. Brantigan.

The late Dr. Harvey Beck was the leader of this early group which quickly ascended to a prominent place on the campus. The chapter functioned as an integral part of the fraternity life of the medical school until the stresses of World War II necessitated curtailment of its activities. In 1947, following the war, Zeta again became active. From a nucleus of four active members the chapter has grown to its present strength of forty. This growth was due in no small part to the activity and interest of the grad- uating seniors of the chapter. The past year has seen a great deal of fraternal activity. Monthly dinner meetings were held at Carl’s Restaurant over which the chapter main- tains club rooms at 519 West Lombard Street. In conjunction with these meetings, seminars were held in which the members participated by speak- ing to the group; each member discussing one aspect of the chosen topic. Alumni members con- cluded the seminars with comments on the clinical aspects of the problem at hand. The highlight of the chapter’s educational pro- gram was a lecture given in Chemical Hall in March by one of Zeta’s most outstanding alumni, Dr. Emil Novak. Social activities formed a large part of the agenda in 1951-1952. Several smokers were held during the early part of the year and followed by a Christmas party in December. Spring found the Phi Betes dancing at the Francis Scott Key House. The annual outing at Dr. Ted Kardash’s shore in May brought to a close an enjoyable year of social events.

Today Phi Delta Epsilon is a vigorous progressive fratern- ity with chapters in fifty medical schools in the United States and Canada and with graduate clubs in most major cities of the nation. The chapter at Maryland has grown up with the national organ- ization and today plays an integral part in enrich- ing the lives of its members during their school years as well as in the years which follow. Its members believe that a medical fraternity should perform three major functions — enable medical students and physicians to form bonds of perma- nent friendship, afford them an opportunity to hear lectures by outstanding persons in the medi- cal community, and offer them a place where they can freely relax and “let their hair down.” During the past year, the group, under the lead- ership of Consul A1 Stambler, continued to grow in quality as well as quantity. The scientific meet- ings were graced by the presence of such speakers as Drs. Henry Marriott, Jacob Conn, A. McGehee Harvey, Harry Gordon and Samuel Morrison. In March, the annual lecture to the school at large was presented by Dr. Paul Aebersold of the Atomic Energy Commission. In addition, numerous social functions throughout the year he’ped the students to forget (at least for Saturday night) that the exam in one tough course or another was getting too close for comfort. For those men who were leaving for internships all over the country, it was good to know that new friendships with men in other chapters and graduate clubs were there wait- ing for them.

The Student American Medical Association was con- ceived in June, 1949 at a business meeting of the A.M.A., and on December 28, 1950, delegates from 48 medical schools met in Chicago to draft a constitution. From this convention emerged a completely independent organization of medical students. Bill Mathews represented the Univer- sity of Maryland at that convention and reported the re- sults to our Student Government. A committee was ap- pointed to organize a local chapter, and by the spring of 1951 a University of Md. chapter became a charter member of the S.A.M.xM The first officers of the S.A.M.A. were: President, Robert Berkow; Vice President, George Fritz; Treasurer, Charles Hammer; and Secretary, Sylvan Frieman. In addition, an advisory committee was formed and at the present time it consists of: Dean H. Boyd Wiley, Dr. Jacob Finesinger, Dr. Henry J. L. Marriott and Dr. Karl F. Mech. Sylvan Frieman was sent to the first meeting of the House of Delegates of the S.A.M.A. held in Chicago in December, 1951, where some of the objectives of the organization were outlined. A few are: To create a com- mon body between students of different medical schools, to provide the services of a package library and medical motion pictures to the member schools, to make loans of grants to medical students, to aid in placing internes and recent graduates, to establish a hospital and surgical in- surance plan for students, to help place students in summer jobs, sponsor scholarships and advanced study, arrange research opportunities, and hold summer seminars as well as national S.A.M.A. clinical conferences and conventions. Perhaps the most notable achievement of this embryo organization to date is the formation of The Journal of the S.A.M.A. The first issue was released in January 1952, and the journal has been exceptionally good. Milestones have been passed — but many more remain. The S.A.M.A. is off to a good start and bids fair to be- come a strong permanent fixture on the American Medical Scene. 144 Clin idtian First row: J. Reed, C. Rienhart, J. Lefever, B. Berck, R. A.

Kac The Christian Medical Society is an organization of physicians and medical students united on the common confessional basis of acceptance of the inspiration and authority of the Bible, the Deity, substitutionary atonement, resurrection and per- sonal return of Christ, and the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration. The society has chapters at many of the medical schools in the Lnited States. The local chapter has been in existence for almost eight years. The Maryland group holds weekly meetings at the school with various speakers, physicians and pastors. In addition, monthly meetings of both a devotional and social nature are held at the home of Dr. A. W. Kac, sponsor of the group. The group participated in the Fall Conference held by the Philadelphia and Baltimore area chapters in Phila- delphia. On April 10 the first annual banquet was held. The speaker was Dr. John R. Brobeck, Chair- man of the Department of Physiology of the School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. 145 ACTIVITIES LIBRARY MAILBOXES DANCE AT THE EMERSON HOTEL MERCY HOSPITAL STUDENT LOUNGE MISS CONWAY 147 THE PATRONS The editors wish to express their sincere appreciation to the many members of the faculty ivho so generously made this publication a financial possibility and to those who rendered such valuable technical assistance.

Robinson 148 149 150 History of the University of Maryland School of Nursing In 1823, prior to the founding of the University of Maryland School of Nursing, the Sisters of Charity of Emmitsburg, Maryland, undertook the work of Nursing care. In order to meet the needs of the people in the growing part of Baltimore, a group of influential citizens decided to organize a Nurses Training School. On December 15, 1889, Miss Louisa Parsons came to the University with the goal of forming a school of nursing. Miss Parsons was born and reared in England and trained under Florence Nightingale at the St. Thomas Hospital in London, graduating in 1880. The student uniform at this time was made of gray chambray coming to the tops of black shoes, long sleeves, with a high Buster Brown collar, white cuffs and apron. Students at this time were required to make their own uniforms. In 1892 the blue and white stripped uniforms, which we use today, were instituted. The probationary uniform is worn without cap. The course of training at this time was two years for the classes. The nurses worked twelve- hour duty and a small stipend was paid at the end of the probationary period, which lasted six to eight weeks. At this time the nursing school was given the same seal as the University of Maryland Medical School, an honor shared by few, if any, nursing schools of that time. The Alumnae Association was organized in 1894. In 1900, Miss Catherine Taylor became Director of Nurses and it was in this year the first three-year students were graduated. Class distinction was first accounted for by the length of the cuffs. In 1905 the nurses of the graduating class of that year printed a yearbook for nurses only. Also, 1907, the first State Board examinations were held for state registration. These examinations greatly improved educational standards in the field of nursing. An eight hour day was begun in 1913. In 1915 the skirt length of the student uniform went up seven inches to keep up with the changes of time. By 1920 the professional schools in Baltimore had been amalgamated with the University of Maryland in College Park, and by 1924 a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of science degree for nurses was in progress. In 1922 the Louisa Parsons Nurses’ Home was dedi- cated. Much was added to the curriculum through affiliations in Psychiatry and Public Health. In 1934 the new University Hospital was completed. The service which the University of Maryland School of Nursing has rendered our country must not be overlooked. Many University nurses received citations during World War I, one received the Victoria Cross from the Prince of Wales. In World War II, one of the University of Maryland’s two one-thousand hospital units was the first to enter Japan. For the service rendered to the Japanese people, the unit was awarded one of the coveted Fuji dolls created for military and political service in 1590. In 1943 the capping ceremony was instituted for the students who had earned their caps after six months preclinical study. Since 1946, when Miss Florence Gipe became Director of Nurses, the educational program of the School of Nursing has been strengthened to the point where it is acclaimed one of the best schools in the country. It is with pride we look over the rich heritage of our school of nursing. We thank all of the many p eople who have made our school what it is today. DEAN FLORENCE MEDA GIPE, R.N., M.S., Ed.D. We humbly dedicate this portion of Terra Mariae Medicus to Miss Florence Meda Gipe, who stands as a symbol of the progress which has come to this School of Nursing. Through her warm friendship and timely advice she has guided many students along the right path to their future careers. Her vast personal interest in the members of our class has played an integral role in maintaining the complete understanding and sympathy for all humanity which is so essential in this, our chosen profession. May we, the women of tomorrow, accept the challenge she has offered us, to carry forth and develop the knowledge we have received during these three years together, into the ever expanding circles of the world. 152 sQctminiitrative Virginia C.

In the year 1860 Miss Florence Nightingale founded the Nightingale School of Nursing at St. Thomas Hospital in London. Miss Louisa Parsons graduated from this school in 1880 and later came to the United States where in 1889 she organized the University of Maryland School of Nursing. When Miss Parsons was preparing to come to the United States, Miss Nightingale gave her a pattern of a cap to be made of “point d’esprit” which she (Miss Parsons) was to give to the nurses of the first school of nursing she founded in the United States. By this, it was the priviledge of the University of Maryland School of Nursing to inherit the Nightingale Cap. For ten years the cap made of “point d’esprit” was worn by students and graduate nurses alike. In 1901 a white organdy student cap was designed by Miss Katherine Taylor, a graduate of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Several of the students made these caps, which aided in financing their course at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. The making of these caps was later taken over by the present sewing room. Volunteers took over this task during the war and have continued to come to the Out Patient Department each week to make from thirty to forty caps, supplying the student nurses with approximately one-hundred caps each month. It is the privilege of every student who has successfully finished the preclinical period to wear the organdy cap. At the beginning of the senior year, all third year students with an average of eighty-five and above are given black velvet bands to add to these caps. It is a ‘probie’, filled with anticipation, who dons her first student cap, looking forward to the day when she will wear the prized “Flossie.” 157 ruant, 1 952 PAULINE MOXLEY ANDRUS Bel Air, Md. It would be impossible to ennumerate “Mox’s” many activities in this article because this gal loves life and shows it. If a class party is suggested “Mox” will inevitably suggest dining where sea- food or Italian spaghetti is available. While “Mox” immensely enjoyed the summer sports, the evenings usually found her knitting arygle socks for Bob. Bob must have liked the socks, for he married our gal, who will probably drag him off to a college town, where she will make plenty of friends and raise her little family of Andruss. BETTY ANN MEZICK COLLINS Fruitland, Md. Our unpredictable “Fluff” spent most of her time in the nurses home getting ready to write to Jack. She must have been an excel- lent letter writer, because he soon led her down the aisle to matrimony. Among her favorite pastimes are playing bridge, having week-ends off, eating home cooked food, and going to the Eastern Shore. The future is rosey for Betty as she has already obtained her B.S. She plans to nurse at Penninsula General Hospital for awhile, and then settle down to raising the best family on the Eastern Shore. SARAH GAYLE HAMLIN Woodbury, N. J. “Great balls of fire,” here comes Gayle. That characteristic laugh is still ringing in our ears. What a tease and how mischiev- ous can you be? Gayle is always the life of all of our gatherings. She provided an additional sparkle to the T.V. Talent Tussle and was more than willing to contribute her energy to an exciting volley- ball game. Gayle’s pet peeves are studying, and the buzz of the alarm clock at 6 A.M. Her future plans are indefinite, but we’re sure that Gayle will make a success of everything she undertakes. 158 MARY HUDDLESON East Lansing, Michigan If you hear anyone in the crowd bragging about the merit of Michigan State College, you can be sure it is our Mary. “Hudd’s” deep resonant voice was a worthy contribution to the T.V. Talent Tussle. Many of those good home-baked cakes from Mary’s folks were rapidly devoured by our class and kept us from starving many a night. After graduation she will make fast tracks for Michigan. Further plans are indefinite, but we know that Mary will make many lasting friendships wherever she goes. MARGARET MAE KESLER Tiffin, Ohio “Margie” has been one of our most faithful pals throughout out three years together. Her exhilarating personality and heart of gold have won the friendship and admiration of students and patients alike. Much of her free time was spent in Washington singing with her church choir in which she was an active member. She is planning to make a quiet trip to her home in Tiffin where she will study for a B.S. degree and spend her well earned leisure time stretched out on the peaceful bank of the river with a fishing pole in her hand. PAMELA WATSON McHENRY Council Bluffs, Iowa Iowa’s contribution to our class was a perk little strawberry blond destined with her quick, dry humor. Between her many months of night duty happily Pam found time to become Mrs. Robert McHenry. When not busy setting up housekeeping with Bob she likes to listen to semi-classical music, go to the movies, parties and listen to good jokes. Pam was one of the more feminine cowboys at home on the range on our TV Talent Tussle. Her future holds plans for setting down with Bob and raising little McHenry’s to “defend the fort.” 159 JACQUELINE SAUNDERS MOTHERSOLE Kensington, Maryland “Jackie” has been an inspiring member of the class since she arrived from College Park. A day off usually saw Jackie on her way to the beach, where she swam with the rest of the water beauties, or displaying her ability in an exciting game of tennis. A very terrific nurse, an excellent student, a wonderful friend, and a superb wife, Jackie rates with the best in our school. With her wonderful personality and pleasant smile she was always willing to lend us a helping hand in a difficult situation. IVERY CLAIRE REITER Washington, D.C. Undoubtedly, you’ve heard the expression, “beauty lacks brains,” but don’t you believe it. This lively little number has disproved the adage time and again. Ivery delights in sailing, tennis, swimming, and bowling; a pastime in which her score ranks with that of professional bowlers. Her favorite saying, “well bully for you,” has become a familiar one among the students. Ivery plans to study for a B.S. d egree and then eventually she will go back to Washington and George Washington University Hospital, where she will spend her time off duty traveling to and fro in her new Chevrolet. HELEN CROOKS ROSE College Park, Maryland What a likable person is Helen, a tall, slim blonde whose pleasant and unpredictable personality make her many lasting friendships wherever she goes. She was happiest when she had enough time off for a quick trip to Wisconsin to see Warren. On a crisp evening last December in the candlelight of her living room, Helen became Mrs. Warren Rose Now that her three years of nursing are com- pleted, Helen and Warren will get two one-way tickets to Wisconsin, buy some snuggies, and settle down to a long and happy life together. 160 NANCY POUTLNEY SILVER Darlington, Md. What a surprise package was dropped on our doorsteps when Nan joined us from Union Memorial. She has proved to be one of the most active and fun loving members of our class, never ceasing to amaze us with her latest animated song renditions. Her boundless energy is usually directed toward basketball, dancing, music, and writing letters which she sometimes forgets to mail. Without a doubt the most eventful days of her nursing were those spent on Public Health Affiliation, and it is this phase of nursing that she plans to follow after graduation. ROXEY ADELE STAMBAUGH Gettysburg, Pa. Gettysburg must have lost most of its sparkle and gaiety when this vivacious little rascal left the battlefield to join us in nursing. Roxey has virtually kept us in stitches with her animated live-wire personality. She is interested in sports, dancing, eating and sneak- ing around the nurses home catching people unaware with her flash bulb camera. Her heart however, lies with nursing and she makes an efficient, hard working “woman in white.” Future plans in- clude studies for a B.S., and after that “the world is her oyster.” MARY DICKENSON STEVENS Salisbury, Md. From the Eastern Shore to College Park and finally to the University of Maryland School of Nursing comes our “Myrt.” She is a whiz at both forehand and backhand plus her serve in exciting tennis matches. One of our basketball stars was “Myrt” who could drop that ball in the basket with ease. Much of “Myrt’s” conversa- tion was of Brown University with particular emphasis on Dick’s latest “faux pas,” and the latest happenings with the Kappa Sigma’s. We know that Salisbury will appreciate her wonderful personality, and that Public Health Nursing will lead her back to see us often. 161 1952 HELEN FLORENCE BRENNAN Silver Spring, Md. When not sleeping, Helen can be found either reading or knitting a pair of socks for Ted. All who know Helen are conscious of the fact that she has been a sincere member of the medical team. She has enjoyed the operating room and delivery room and plans to take post graduate courses in either of these fields. Helen spent a great deal of time helping to prepare this annual as well as joining readily into other outside interests. We feel sure that Helen will do exceptionally well on any path she may choose. DIANE CHELLINI Masontown, Pa. If looking for Diane, search all of the rooms in the nurses’s home, for this gal can never be found in her own. She enjoys her sleep and sixteen hours of everyday is spent in this manner. “Dee”, however is an exceptionally good student, who is always willing to aid others in activities. Included in the former may we mention that she aided in preparing Terrae Mariae Medicus. She prefers obstetrical nursing and hopes to continue with this field in the future. MIRIAM LOUISE CROFT Hampstead, Md. As a girl above average in academic grades, who has never been too busy to participate in class activities, our “Mel” was chosen secretary of the junior class and vice president of the class of ’52. Nursing is most important in this girl’s life, and her efforts have shown her co-workers that this little lady is perfection. She has enjoyed all of nursing but showed favoritism to the operating room, where she became a master at serving sutures. She plans post graduate study in operating room techniques and ' we predict that she will be a success as she has always been in the past. 162 GENEVIEVE PARKS DULANEY Scherr, W. V a. We wish to introduce you to our smallest. A slight 4’7”, Genny is often overlooked. In nursing it is hard to believe that one so small can accomplish so much. This little bee slowed up long enough to say, ‘I Do’, to Clarence Dulaney. Since then she has been quite busy with duty and her husband, who has recently been sent to Germany. The future will be spent with “Hubby,” wherever that may be and we are certain that wherever she will be in nursing she will be welcomed. Although she is only knee high to a bed, she is high in our opinion. MATILDA JEAN GALTON Raleigh, N. C. From the south came several of our classmates, one of whom is Jean. “Mattie”, as she is jokingly called, is often the victim of practical jokers, perhaps because she has such an amiable disposition. A lover of good music, she sports quite a collection of the classics, and often her off duty hours are spent at the Baltimore Symphony. She participated in the Medical Christian Association in previous years. Jean enjoyed every minute wherever she was placed on duty, as long as people were present to talk to. Jean plans to venture on to college to further prepare herself for her Nursing Career. JOANN FRANCES GROSS Joppa, Md. Our “Jo” takes great pride in hailing from Harford County, the spot which is dearest to her heart. With a contagious smile she goes through life, cheerful and willing, no task too large or small for her. Often a member of the group of practical jokers, she enjoys teasing others equally well as being teased herself. She plans to return to Springfield and continue with Psychiatric nursing, or else join the army and see the world. To “Jo”, we can say: “Go forth in the future as you have in the past, and you shall accomplish whatever you undertake.” 163 BARBARA CATHERINE GUMP Hesston, Pa. Barbara has been one of the silent members of our class, and few of us can say we really know her. However, we who are fortunate enough to have known her can offer only praise in her nursing abilities. Barbara enjoys laughter and her own is hilarious in itself. Barbara was elected treasurer of our class this past year, and also assisted in preparing Terrae Mariae Medicus. If Barbara would only have grown in accordance with her appetite we could never envy her for that tiny waistband. The future is hazy, but we see Barbara hard at work improving nurs ing conditions wherever she may be. MIRIAM MATLACK HECK Baltimore, Md. “Heck” contributes a personality that is unique, self sufficient, and reliant. She has always been outstanding in class activities and social functions. Her undying sense of humor and ease with other people has made her a student of which this University can be justly proud. Blessed with attractiveness, she is constantly off on a social call. It is hard to believe that with all her qualities one may also succeed in the nursing profession. “Heck” has no definite plans for the future, but if she continues to view life in her same broad-minded, smiling fashion, nothing but success can come her way. JOANN LOUISE HILT Chicopee Falls, Mass. In Joann we find an exceptionally dry sense of humor, which makes her the life of any party. As treasurer of her class in the Junior Year, and participant in the glee club, as well as member of the barber shop quartet during the television contest this past summer, it is easy to see that Joann has unlimited talents. Well liked by all who know her it is plain to see why she is so well liked by her patients. Joann plans to travel throughout the world as a missionary nurse, and may it be said here, that wherever she will travel she will do well in her chosen profession. 164 JOYCE ELLEN JOHNSON Tow son, Md. Joyce is one of those lovable characters who attracts friends and mischief in a quantity and variety believable only to her classmates. We find the Navy leaves her breathless, but probably her idea of heaven is braunsweiger sandwiches lathered with mustard. A happy gal, Joyce has always been a standbye for top entertainment and the watch she wears from WAAM-TV, is evidence that she is no amateur when it comes to pantomiming Beatrice Kay’s records. In between good nursing care, she found time to be Editor of her yearbook, and with her varied abilities and radiating personality only success lies ahead. NINA KATHERINE KIDDY Luke, W. V a. Without reading further, it is obvious that this girl’s nickname could only be “Kitty”. An attractive and popular girl, Kitty is often found at social gatherings where she is the center of attraction. Kitty has been a fine classmate, while on or off duty, and we feel that she has enjoyed her working hours as well as her off duty hours. The operating room is her first love, perhaps because several incidents tickled her funny bone. With an exceptional sense of humor, our gal is sure to go far with her nursing, as she possesses a personality which makes her well liked by all. VIRGINIA MILLER MATHEWS Salisbury, Md. Ginny came to us after spending one year at the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy LIU, where she decided that nursing came first in her choice of studies. Most of us who know Ginny, will remember those first few months when she willingly helped us with our studies. After one year with nursing, Ginny married Bill Mathews, a senior in Medicine, and disrupted her schooling to set up housekeeping and work in the operating room. She returned to our class this year. The future can hold no otner prediction but a life in the field of Medicine with her “Doctor Bill.” 16 MARION EVA McCLURE T owson, Md. Pootsie is another one of those popular girls whose buzzer begins to ring every night at seven. Her impish grin and bright eyes are widely appreciated. When on duty, she is en- grossed in her professional work and just as good at making her patients comfortable as fulfilling an engagement. “Pootsie” can always be remembered as laughing and smiling, whether the roads be rocky or smooth her charming personality will ac- complish great success for her in the field of professional nursing. ELIZABETH OUZTS McCLENDON Edgefield, S. C. If this young lady had grown an inch or two taller she would surely have scalped herself on hospital door frames. ‘ Lid” had been with us only two weeks when she entered into matrimony and became Mrs. Harold McClendon. This ‘Southern Belle’ is a bustling bit of protoplasm whose nursing is fulfilled with utmost speed and efficiency. We wonder sometimes how she always has time to stop and chat a while and yet accomplish so much. Perhaps the twinkle in her eye with determination behind it is the answer and makes us confident that in her chosen profession she will be very successful. CAROLYN BARBARA MILLER Forest Hills, Md. This unageing little blonde could easily be mistaken for a little girl. However her nursing abilities far surpass her apparent age and we find her wise and well versed in medical conversation. Carolyn has always been quiet and considerate of others and therefore has been welcomed into the arms of the nursing profes- sion. This country gal, enjoys going home to the fresh air and beauty of Harford County and she plans to take a vacation and breathe in all of the pleasures she has missed in these three years before journeying further into nursing. 166 CATHERINE CLAIRE NONAMAKER Philadelphia, Pa. Philadelphia’s gift to our school of nursing is Kitty, a tall slender girl possessing charm and fascination to all who know her. A willing conversationalist, she speaks often of Johnnie, whose ring she proudly wears on her left hand, and the plans concerned with the future. We have not known Kitty too well, as she seems so far from most of us, but we have looked at her amazed at the energy which bursts forth. Finishing in April, complete with B.S. brings a vacation for Kitty with no definite plans for the future. VIVIAN DELORES SAWYER Shawhoro, N. C. Now honey, let me introduce this southern belle. No amount of mischief is too small for Vivian to find herself involved. As she is an attractive girl, she confuses both herself and her engagements several times a month. Always a welcome partner on duty, Vivian is a quick efficient nurse. While off duty, this little butterfly is always on the move. Her personality and disposition can lead her only to success. Whether she remains in Baltimore or returns to the south is undecided, and undoubtedly will be until five minutes prior to her train’s departure. BETTY SUZANNE SCHIFFBAUER Pittsburgh, Pa. From the steel factories in Pennsylvania, Susie blew in one day in August ’49. From the beginning we could see Susie as the little gal with a “finger in every pie.” This small, but mighty bit of efficiency has worked hard in the past, not only in nursing, but in school activities, such as to participate in the “Talent Tussle” program on TV, when our school displayed its talent. She has been a member of the glee club and also the volleyball team. Susie plans to further her education by continuing on through college to obtain a B.S. 16 HELEN MAE WHEATLEY T owson, Md. Towson has given us several of our classmates, one of whom is Helen. We who know Helen recognize many qualities not seen by an outsider. Close association has taught us that her heart knows no defeat, her ambition no bounds, as a friend she is warm and true, and as a fellow student, honest and sincere. Helen has worked hard in the past to make her patients respect and enjoy her good nursing care. Helen and Charles Amos have been a twosome throughout three years, surely the future holds combined plans for these two. RUTH MARGARET WOLFRAM Baltimore, Md. One of the local Baltimore gals, “Boots” has previously spent three years at College Park and consequently will graduate with her B.S. in Nursing. Through out student nursing, Boots has been pleasant, agreeable and well liked by all. Her pleasures are similar to those of other popular young ladies; sporting events, good food and good parties. With her well rounded personality it can readily be understood that, “when in need, she is a friend indeed.” The future is undecided, perhaps it will be Public Health, or Educational Nursing. SHIRLEY JANE WORKMAN Silver Spring, Md. It is difficult to include in a paragraph all the virtues of Shirley Jane better known to us as “Sunny.” Her nickname fits her personality, her frankness, sincerity, balanced by her ac- tivities, attractiveness and good humor. Be it basketball, bridge, sailing, tennis, or studying, you will find her beaming with enthusiasm. Sunny came to us from Western Maryland College where she received a truly liberal education and she will leave, come graduation, with memories — just as memories of her will be left for many of us. In case you’ll be looking for Sunny this summer, journey to Cape Cod where you’ll find, her as camp nurse and always ready for a party. 168 October, 1952 CATHERINE JACQUELINE ADKINS Baltimore, Md. “Jackie”, decided that nursing was for her after taking the pre-nursing course offered by this hospital. During the three years that we have known Jackie we have always found her willing to participate in any type of activity. She sang with our school glee club in ’50 and helped in preparing this yearbook. In the future we see Jackie at the bedside making the most of her chosen profession. Soon after graduation that engage- ment ring we see on her third finger, left hand, will be re- placed with the golden band of marriage. CHARLOTTE YOUNKIN ANDERSON Hyattsville, Md. Charlotte, one of the first in our class to walk down the aisle, has spent half her time and money catching buses to College Park to see “her” Ben. Now that he is in the marines her favorite pastime is writing every day letters to Quantico and trying to arrange her hours so that she can get a glimpse of him on the week-end. She plans to join Ben when she finishes in May, and take that well deserved vacation. ANITA LOUISE BAUGHER York, Pa. “Baugherberger,” a fresh air fiend, believes a walk a day keeps the doctor away. Walking is just one of her many outside activities, she is wild about all kinds of sports and is quite at home on land or swimming in the ocean. Since her first day here she has kept all the chewing gum and dill pickle companies in business. Her favorite specialty was Psychiatry, however, she does not plan to enter this field, but has decided on general nursing for awhile and then perhaps college. It will be our loss and York’s gain when she returns home as a full fledged R.N. 16 PHYLLIS VIRGINIA BOOTH Baltimore, Md. Big blue eyes, golden tresses, fashionable clothing, and a beautiful smile describe “Phyl”, a welcome figure in school activities. We best remember Phyl sitting near the phone talking with Sonny, or awaiting his call, and thus she has been labeled our “phone booth.” Infrequently seen at the Nurses’ Home, she is often traveling between Baltimore and Fort Meade, and a search for her after hours is fruitless. Phyl is a quick efficient nurse who knows what has to be done and does it. She is exceptionally well liked by all. The future can be summed with one word . . . “Sonny.” JANE ALICE BOYNTON Baltimore, Md. Alice is the girl with the bright red locks and the impish smile. Never without a happy grin, “Laugh and the world laughs with you,” seems to be her motto, and it applies, for her happy moods are contagious. Alice will be remembered for her numerous “L’affaires de coeur,” and for her happy-go-lucky personality. Among her favorite topics, include her little niece, her dog “Fluff,” and her passion for classical music. Her pet peeve is red hair, but we must admit on her it looks good. The future includes a long vaca- tion and then graduate duty in Psychiatry, perhaps at Springfield. SHIRLEY CALLAHAN Easton, Md. Shirley, a talented Eastern Shore girl who is quite handy with paint and brush, is noted for her fine hand made gifts. We could always depend on “Callahan” to bring us some biscuits, homemade cake and chicken when she went home for the week-end. Shirley’s nursing obligations have been fulfilled with equal reliability. She boosted the school spirit by playing on the basketball team and bringing it back to victory. Her chosen field is Psychiatry and she plans to nurse in our new “Psychiactric Institute.” 170 FRANCES ELLEN CAMPBELL LaPlata, Md. Well known by all for her friendly smile and the twinkle in her brown eyes, Frances can always be depended upon to add wit to any situation. Her subtle humor has made her loved by all. She is not only a popular and efficient student, but is also accomplished in all types of needle-work and the art of hair trimming, in which she does a booming business. Frances delights in nightly hen- sessions, and she is usually found amidst her many friends and knitting needles. Future plans include furthering her education and later, marriage and a family. NENA MURENE DELLINGER York, Pa. Nena is a true friend with a “heart of gold.” She is quiet and even tempered with a witty sense of humor. She enjoys parties, dancing, swimming, riding in convertibles and Pa. Dutch cooking; however her main interests have been in the Naval Academy and the Medical School. Our memories still return to the thought of her Aunt’s delicious homemade chocolate candies. She likes bed-side nursing, but is undecided about her future plans. JANET LOUISE EYSTER York, Pa. Janet is another of the popular girls from Penna. She has been the victim of many a practical joke, but also has been the instigator of many herself. She enjoys parties, swimming, dancing and the week-ends that she had off at Springfield. Much to the surprise of everyone after her vacation last year she announced that a hometown boy had stepped into the picture, now she is wearing a ring on the third finger of her left hand. Needless to say what her plans are after June seventh. 17 PEGGY LOUISE JONES Salisbury, Md. Tall, slender Peg, first saw light of day on the Eastern Shore. She studied pre-nursing at College Park for three years before journeying to Baltimore. Soon after her arrival she became engaged to Bob Wells. Peg enjoys fashionable clothing, parties, sporting events, and any situation where she is permitted to talk unre- strained. Peg’s life long ambition is to spend a great deal of her life, sunning and bathing on the beach at Ocean City. Peg enjoys public health nursing and plans to continue in this field. MARY SUE LAIGN Gassaway, W . V a. From the hills of West Virginia came this tall timber. Extend- ing her limbs into the class activities she joined the glee club and assisted in preparing the yearbook. Sue enjoyed Obstetrical Nursing, especially those busy nights in the delivery room. Even after busy hours on duty, Sue is full of pep and entertainment, and we will never cease to be amazed at what pops into her busy head next. Sue plans to return to West Virginia, where she will continue in Obste- trical Nursing and perhaps locate that tall blonde for whom she’s been waiting. KATHRYN KESSIE LARMORE Salisbury, Md. From down on the Eastern Shore came “Kessie,” bringing with her a pair of “purty” eyes, contagious smile and a large vocabulary of wit. This girl is another who will obtain her B.S., as she studied at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa. prior to entering Univer- sity. Happy go lucky “Kessie” is a welcome companion on or off duty and an hour with her is worth anyone’s time. After an ex- cursion trip to Arizona, she plans to return to Salisbury where she will continue nursing at Penninsula General Hospital. 172 HELEN DORIS MAXWELL Cumberland, Md. This is “Max,” full of vim, vigor and vitality. A gal who bubbles over with enthusiasm at any new undertaking, with the exception of getting up at 6 a.m. As she is an attractive girl she is often found at parties, dances or other social functions. Her sense of humor and conscientious workmanship, make her an asset to her class. After spending two years at college, on the seventh day of June, she will leave us with a B.S. in Nursing. As she enjoyed Obstetrical Nursing, she plans to continue in this field. DORCAS ANN McLAUGHLIN Silver Spring, Md. Three years ago when our class was just starting to function we thought of “Dorc” as one of our most quiet and reserved young ladies. But there has been a marked change; she is now often the instigator of many parties and devilment in the nurses home. She is very fond of the nursing profession but often thought of returning to her musical interest of playing the flute. Our nursing days would not have been the same without Dorc’s happy-go-lucky per- sonality. She found Obstetrics her favorite interest in training and her plans for the future is the field of V. A. Nursing. BETTY ARTHUR MOORE Baltimore, Md. This chatter box, with her blond locks and blue eyes, manages to get herself into all types of situations, conversations and activities. As a member of the basketball team, she enjoyed the participation with other nursing schools. Also a former pre-nursing student, Betty decided upon her profession early in high school. From the Naval Academy she found Bill Moore, and on December 22, 1951, the two became “Mr. and Mrs.” Betty loves to surprise us and she certainly has. She’ll go a thousand miles for “Just Plain Bill.” 173 PEGGY LEWIS MOORE Beckley, W. V a. Of the mountaineers who came to Maryland in forty-nine, none is better known or more universally liked than “Peg.” With her carefree manner and willingness to participate in all activities, she has made herself a host of friends. With mischievous twinkle in her eye, she finds it hard to check some of her impulses. In the latter part of fifty-one, she and Basil Moore, Law ’51 exchanged “I do’s.” We predict that a conversationalist like Peg, and her lawyer hubby, will never be at a loss for words. She plans to run and operate her own Nursery. DORIS MARION PRICE Baltimore, Md. Doris gives one the impression of being extremely reserved, but behind those expressive brown eyes we have found her mischievous and colorful. She possesses the ability to take everything in her stride and in moments of anguish, Doris will be found calm and composed. Doris always appears as if she has just stepped from a page of Vogue, whether in uniform or street clothes. Doris has enjoyed Obstetrical Nursing with such enthusiasm that she plans on continuing in this field. Her B.S. comes with her in June, and we feel that she will be extremely successful. MARILYN JEAN MURRAY Canal Zone, Panama “Say, you got a nickle?” is one of the refrains we will always remember from Marilyn. She is one of our most successful athletes and gave the school a helping hand by playing on the basketball team. Marilyn is most happy and content when she is ice skating, horse-back riding or swimming. While Marilyn was affiliating at Springfield, she took up the art of driving a tractor; a certain guy named Harry taught her how to navigate it. She was most inter- ested in Obstetrics and has talked of entering frontier nursing after graduation. 174 ANN JACKSON PURCELL Havre de Grace, Md. This little filly galloped in from the Maryland countryside to take her place with the class of ’52. Coy Ann, with her cheerful smile and snappy conversation, make her exceptionally well liked by all of us. While on duty Ann has worked very hard to achieve the satisfaction from being labelled efficient. Early in ’52, during a weekend leave and hasty honeymoon, she became Mrs. Robert Purcell. We will never forget petite Ann for her sweetness and sincerity have made a place in our hearts. BARBARA ANN RIECKS Baltimore, Md. The blonde haired, blue eyed amazon of the class, is our “jack of all trades, Riecks.” The center of all student activities, we have elected Ann as our president twice, in ’49 and ’52, also vice-president in ’49-’50. Everybody’s pal, Ann joins the gals in basketball, canasta, knitting, sewing or what have you. One day in December she was found wearing a certain ring on the third finger left hand and we wonder if she will continue in her chosen profession or settle down to a full time job of homemaking. ANN RINDOSH Shamokin, Pa. This amicable young lady arrived from Shamokin, Pa., one brisk day in October, to become an integral member of our class. She appears reserved, but there is mischief in her deep, dark eyes. One of her favorite pastimes is horse-back riding, but here in Balti- more you will more often find her window shopping, dancing or working 3 to 11 P. M. Ann was intrigued by obstetrics, and the care of infants. Following a vacation in Cuba, she plans to be an Obstetrical nurse. 175 ETHEL ANDREA SELLERS Kingston, R. I. This titian haired miss is our gift from old New England. She came to us from the University of Rhode Island, where she was a member of Phi Sigma, a national honorary biology society and of Phi Kappa Phi. To her B.S. in Zoology, she now adds the honor of being our best academic student. We all respect her biting wit and sound judgment. Ethel is devoted to visiting her old New- foundland dog, boarded nearby, but she has found time for our S.G.A., our television adventure and this yearbook, as well as volun- teer work for the Humane Society. Her future holds Europe, a master’s degree and her beloved “Dr. Tommy.” CAROLE JANE SEWELL Bethesda, Md. College Park’s loss has truly been University’s gain, as this attractive young lady has been found highly accessible in the Nursing Profession. C. J. has joined with us in school activities, as she represented her class in the contest for Miss University of 1951, where she received second prize. C. J. found that Public Health held the channel of variety for which she was seeking and consequently she plans to continue out into this field. MARY HELENA SHREVE Washington, D. C. Another Blondie, with blue eyes and peaches and cream com- plexion, Mary is as unassuming and sincere a friend as could ever be found. Always quiet and reserved, this class me mber has the gift of leaving a lasting good impression with all she meets. Loving her beauty rest she needs a fire-siren and sledge hammer to awaken in the moring. Mary’s sincere personality and kind disposition are commendable and will always be remembered by her classmates. Future plans include marriage with four to six little ones. 176 JORETTA ANN SNOWBERGER Waynesboro, Pa. “Jo,” may easily be described as small but mighty. This cute little blonde with her carefree disposition, knows what she wants and rarely fails to get it. Possessed with boundless energy and a striking personality, “Jo” conquers all. To sum her up nicely may we say, “Jo is not just witty in herself, but the cause that wit is in other men.” Future plans include general duty nursing for a short while, and then dental assistant to her favorite dentist, Jack, whose pin she proudly wears close to her heart. NANCY JEAN STRONG Denton, Md. Poetry, symphonies, and the finer works of art, appeal to “Nan.” Throughout nursing we have found her sincere and willing as well as conscientious and observant. As she will obtain her B.S. in June, she plans to futher her education at Columbia Uni- versity. A born leader, Nan will obtain her greatest success by improving her education and bettering the nursing conditions in needy hospitals. After her studying is completed, Nan plans to return to the Eastern Shore. ANNA MAE SWARTZ Ellicott City, Md. Vivacious is the word for Ann. With her auburn-red hair and snapping brown eyes she is sure to make others sit up and take notice. Not only is she very efficient in her work, but she is equally entertaining and pleasing to her patients. Ann has trouble with blushing, although a certain other redhead whose diamond she wears on her third finger, left hand probably doesn’t mind at all. Dancing is her by-word. Her hardest task is making up her mind, but when she finally decides, her decisions are for the best. Future plans include continuation into graduate nursing, and marriage, of course. 177 ELIZABETH SNOWDEN WARFIELD Catonsville, Md. Betty with her twinkling blue eyes, became a member of our class when she jonied us from College Park. Upon her arrival at University she became active in school functions; was elected president of our class, patricipated in various extra-curricular activities, which did not mar her academic record. Her sweet disposition and sincere manner make her likeable by all. On her left hand she is wearing Lou’s engagement ring and in the near future she plans to add a solid band to it. MARY ANNA WESTERMAN Sherwood Forest, Md. Mary Anna joined us from College Park, where she spent three years in preparation for nursing. Chosen president of our class 1950-1951 and president of the S.G.A. 1951-1952, it is obvious how her fellow students have supported her. She is never too busy to be one of our best nurses. Blonde haired, blue eyed Mary Anna is truly a self-made gal who maintains close friendship with all of her classmates. She plans post graduate study in operating room technique or pediatrics. We are certain her past academic achievements will aid her in con- tinuing success. PATRICIA WHEELER Richmond, Ind. Pat originally comes from Silver Spring, Md., but changed her address recently to a spot in Indiana. A quiet member of the class, Pat has always put her best foot forward and enjoys the self satisfaction achieved by good Nursing care. Easy going she never seems to worry for she can take the silent and hectic hours with equal enthusiasm, and send forth a smile to everyone. Pat plans to go home to Indiana, where she will do general duty Nursing, and obtain her MRS. Likeable, dependable and capable, she has been a favorite among us. GERALDINE KILBY WHITE Bel Air, Md. “Jerry,” otherwise known as “Kilby,” is always ready for a good laugh and a good time, but knows when to get down to business. She is another who belongs to the married set and spends much of her time cooking and keeping house for Jack. When she has her house work up to date, Jerry likes parties, swimming, and an occasional quiet evening at home. She has ridden in many horse shows and has received prizes including ribbons and trophies for her riding. Her future plans include homemaking, and perhaps a trip to Japan, with hubby Dr. White. ELIZABETH CHARLENE WILLEY Georgetown, Del. Charlene seems like a shy quiet girl, but once you get to know her then the fun begins. An attractive girl with her dark tresses and big blue eyes “Willey ’ is outstanding in red, which incidentally is her favorite color. Give Willey a cup of black coffee, chewing gum, good music and plenty of it, and she is in seventh heaven. Known and admired for her quiet unassuming manner, this pretty Miss is happiest when doing things for others, and it is well known that she would lend the shirt from her back. Charlene hopes to attend college and work toward a degree. | LUCY GRAY WINSLOW Richmond, V a. Lucy is another of our five-year students who stopped off at College Park for two years of pre-nursing and then journeyed on to Baltimore where she has completed three more years and received her B.S. and R.N. Whenever someone says, “Where’s Lucy?” we know that with her heart of gold she’s either on duty meeting the needs of her patients or else trying to boost a classmate’s morale. The sound of clicking knitting needles drifting down the halls in the wee hours of the morning told us Lucy had again “ripped out” the sweater she began three years ago. Best wishes Lucy, in the Public Health work you plan to do. 179 ruary, 1953 BRITTA HELENE FRIS Falls Church, V a. This serene miss, who came from College Park, was officially initiated at University by a T and A. Surviving this operation she stepped back into her nursing, where she has been found efficient and capable of good nursing care. Britta enjoys many things in life, especially the wind blowing in her face while cutting the waves in a sailboat. In the future Britta plans to do nursing in a little spot close to the water. RUTH SHIRLEY HASLUP Linthicum Heights, Md. Shirley is the quiet member of her class, the silent conscientious nurse, who goes about her daily tasks with sincere enthusiasm. Shirley also comes to us from College Park, and that day in June will obtain her B.S. Shirley is ready to participate in sports and activities of any type that her friends may be in- terested. We see wedding bells in the future, or perhaps a steady position in obstetrical nursing, which rates highest in her personal likes. ELLEN LOUISE WHITE Washington, D. C. After completing two years at College Park, Md, Ellen traveled up to Baltimore and dropped on University’s doorstep. She became quite active in the Glee Club, basketball team, as well as being elected Secretary of the Student Council, and a member of the social Committee. Her extra-curricular activities are varied, as her appearance and charming personality made her attractive, assets she limits to the taller men. Ellen plans to settle down to a good position where she hopes to find opportunity to travel. 180 181 September, 1953 Bloxom, Nellie Brown, Margaret Douglas, Janet Dunn, Barbara Elmore, Jean Elwell, Mary Fenwick, Dorothea Frerie, Mora Froeb, Marguerite Garrett, Mary Grimes, Amelia Guaralnick, Shirley Hager, Charlotte Haring, Margaret Haynes, Maxine Hulse, Mary Kohlhoss, Nancy Koontz, Evelyn Lenning, Kari Lewis, Carolyn Loughlin, Elsie McCready, Esther McNeil, Anna Mohre, Lynne Muir, Mary Myers, Carolyn O’Neal, Dorothy Pancoast, Mary Prigel, Thelma Prince, Elaine Ramsburg, Helena Reheard, Shirlie Reinhart, Mary Renninger, Fae Robinson, Patricia Rogerson, Ruth Schafer, Alice Stearns, Sue Tucker, Delores Udell, Joyce Watkins, Jeanne Yeager, Mary Zang, Verna 182 1954 Adams, Thelma Austin, Carol Bowling, Doris Carter, Barbara Crawford, Georgia Crist, Patricia Danield, Betty Dorfler, Betty Elbourne, Ella Fairbank, Peggy Fitzgerald, Emily Fleiscbman, Nancy Harbert, Betty Hauver, Jean Hewell, Muriel Hibberd, Charlene Hine, Nesta Hines, Rise Keating, Patricia Kernan, Stella LeFever, Joyce Leffel, Patricia Lessans, Roberta Lewis, Elaine MacKenzie, Marlene Marshall, Mary Meyer, Mary Nations, Mary Parks, Faye Persons, Barbara Reid, Marlene Reinhart, Catharine Richardson, Margaret Ricks, Nancy Ritter, Joan Ritzman, Joan Robertson, Gwen Snyder, Naomi Swint, Katherine Thompson, Mary Ussery, Carol Weller, Jean Widman, Elaine Williams, Frances Willson, Alta Wilson, Mildred Wijangco, Demetria Wolfe, Patricia Yingling, Catherine 183 We began with Medical . In a hospital such as ours, there are un- limited opportunities for learning, and much of this learning, takes place on our medical and surgical wards in a program designed to combine theory with practice. Our courses in medical and surgical nur- sing are carefully planned by the medical and nursing staff to correlate an understanding of the manifestations and treatment of dis- ease with a basic consideration of socio-econ- omic needs of the patient. Many hours are spent in informal lectures, group discussion, reference reading, demonstrations, and clin- ical observation. WE REMEMBER . . . the many physicals . . . checking int ravenous fluids . . . . . . changing soiled dressings . . . . . . numerous back rubs . . . . . and, the pouring of medications. 184 . . . and Surgical Nursing Of equal value to us is our actual parti- cipation in the hospital in the treatment and care of patients. As our knowledge and nursing skills pro- gress, we assume more responsibilities, and we are expected to recognize and interpret situations peculiar to certain types of ill- ness. We learn to think and act quickly and effectively, to draw upon our own re- sources in emergencies, and to consider foremost the health and well-being of our patient. . . the charting of T.P.R.’s . . . 185 We studied Obstetrics • • • Obstetrical nursing is a new and stimulating experience for all of us. With good reason, maternity floors have always been the most cheerful, and we as students, share the happi- ness and elation of new mothers and fathers. Management and treatment of the normal and abnormal phases of pregnancy, delivery, and post partum care are studied. Care of the newborn infant is also studied with emphasis on family-baby relationship. There is perhaps no other single field of nursing which will be of more value to us in our own personal plans for the future. 186 • • • and Pediatrics All of look forward to our three month spe- cialty with the children in Pediatrics. For most of these small children, this is their first experience away fr om home, and their happi- ness and security is threatened by a completely strange and neAV environment. It is both chal- lenging and rewarding for student nurses to help modify hospital routines and procedures in a manner that will promote their confidence and trust in us. Child development, child psychology, and nu- trition. are considered as fundamental principles in our classwork, and a special unit is included on the care and treatment of the premature infant. 187 From the Operating Room off to We were a little frightened the first day we passed through the mysterious doors of the operating room. Each of us had formed different conceptions of the role we would play our two months there. The silence of the busy rooms, in which the skillful hands of the physicians were quietly working, amazed us. Our fears were soon abolished when Miss Williams “clued us in,” and we became a functioning part of the 0. R. After we had been shown how to “set up,” our fingers itched until the day came when our supervisor said, “You may scrub in ‘A’,” which meant the instruments and sutures used during the operation, would be passed from our hands to the doctors. As soon as the opera- tion was completed, and the patient was back in his room — under the care of our classmates — we scrubbed again, only this time it became the walls and instruments that were treated with soap and water. 188 Psychiatric Affiliation . . . Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital. An entirely different field of nursing un- folded before us when we began a three month affiliation in psychiatry. Most of us journeyed to Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hos- pital in Towson, but in June, eight of us as- sembled our belongings and began affiliation at Springfield Hospital in Sykesville. For three months we were confronted with meet- ing the psychological needs of our patients and helping them readjust to the situations which were in part, responsible for their ill- ness. At S.E.P.H., we assisted with treatments such as deep insulin, electric shock, continu- ous tubs and psycho-therapy. “Windy Brae”, the nurses home at Sheppard, was filled to capacity with students affiliating from hospi- tals all over the U.S. Entertainment centered around the “Casino”, the recreational build- ing. The Casino. Windy Brae. Jones Building. Hubner Building, Springfield. The nurses home, known as the Jones Building was complete with a library and study hall, continually in use. We found the curriculum exceptionally interest ing at both hospitals of affiliation. The course offered at Springfield included essentially the same theory and practice as that at S.E.P.H. The Hubner building, housed all new admissions to the hospital, and it was here where most of our study was pre sented. 189 Accident Room The various specialties added the “variety” which is the spice of life. In the accident room, the most unpredictable department in the hospital, we helped in suturing a lacerated finger as often as sending patients to surgery for an emergency operation. The diet school revealed our domestic abilities, for our chores ranged from calculating a diabetic diet, to serving the patients their trays. Cystoscopy home to Specialties . . . Diet School Cystoscopy presented us with ample opportunity for learning more about genito-urinary conditions. In the Out Patient Department we observed and were taught how to draw blood. In Pediatrics clinic we observed the clinical picture of childhood ill- nesses. Some of us spent two months on Public Health Affiliation. During this period we saw the actual community needs for medical attention. 90 Outpatient Dept. Public Health Nurse O.P.D. 191 We lived in the Nurses Home • • • MRS. FLORENCE W. ALEXANDER A true friend came to us from the Eastern Shore of Maryland almost two years ago when Mrs. Alexander became our housemother. She, more than anyone else, has made our nurses’ residence into a nurses’ home with her warm genuine interest in us and her ability to make wise and just decisions when we stepped out of line. Never was she too busy to give us a helpful word of advice or just have a friendly chat. Mrs. Alexander has become “Mom” to many of us and she will always be among our most pleasant memories of Student Nursing. Behind the serene doors marked “Louisa Parsons Home”, live the large majority of the two hundred students that staff our hospital twenty-four hours a day. It is here that we have lived, laughed and attempted to sleep for three years. We will never forget the summer months of sun- bathing on the nurses home roof, or the evening snacks in our basement kitchen. The living room on the first floor, has seen a variety of activity, we have celebrated victory by our Basketball team, as well as held our annual Christmas Pajama party within its walls. Equally as popular are the individual parties held in the rooms following a busy day on duty. 192 We enjoyed Activity • • • C. J. Sewell ’52, received second prize in the contest for Homecoming Queen in the fall. The class of February ’52 enjoying one of those much talked about steak dinners. Under the management and instruction of Miss LaRue Schwallenberg RN, a basketball team was formed by the student body. The girls enjoyed the participation with stu- dent nurses from other hospitals in the city. As the season came to an end, we were not as victorious as we had hoped to be, but more confident that the future games will be packed with excitement and victory. . . . we clowned . 193 We displayed Talent During the summer of 1951, a group of students repre- sented our School of nursing in a “Talent Tussle” program, sponsored by station WAAM-TV. Students representing a large majority of the hospitals in Maryland, shared in this competition. Following many weeks of victory, the above University girls entered the finals and won second prize, losing by one point to the students from Hopkins. Two of our girls, J. Johnson ’52, L. Mohre ’53, won watches when prizes for individual talent were distributed. The entire group was presented with a silver cup engraved “Runner up-TV Talent Tussle ’51”. We Danced . . . 194 “But Doctor, We don’t seem to have any fallopian tubes.” At frequent irregular intervals we laughed . . . Bottoms up!! “Schedule or no schedule, he’s hungry now.” “Nurse! I had to ring this bell four times.” “You mean I’ll have to carry bedpans?” 195 Three Years Wide-eyed and filled with amazement were we who entered these portals less than three years ago. Each of us anticipated adventure, but little did we realize what really awaited us behind those closed doors which admitted only the chosen few who would one day go out again into the world to serve humanity. As “probies” we proudly donned our starched stripes and crisp white aprons to join the ranks of our predecessors. In time, we, too hoped to be in- cluded among those who were able to give their patients the reassurance needed to guide them on the road to recovery as well as to provide the essentials for their physical convalescence. We struggled through those laborious classes to master the art and science of our work. Finally after those endless hours of anatomy and physiology, microbiology, chemistry and nursing arts accompanied by the countless bed baths that were given each morning we reached our first objective — that of being capped by our “big sisters.” Now we looked and were beginning to feel as if we really belonged working side by side with the older stu- dents, because those little white organdy caps were on our heads too. From here on in each of us was actually a cog in the wheels of the machinery that kept our hospital functioning twenty four hours a day. We shouldered the responsibility when assigned to work relief or night duty and endeavored to stand by our patients during the crucial moments following surgery or a relapse from what had been an apparent remission from an acute disease. Shock blocks, Wangensteen suctions, I. V. fluids, and blood transfusions became routine and we learned to live and work with them as though they had become an integrated part of each of us. How can one ever forget the long searches through the medicine cabinet for one of the new wonder drugs that had not yet been dispensed for use on the ward, or the minutes that seemed an eternity when we waited for an elevator to take a patient to X-ray, for we knew our duties were waiting to be fulfilled. Opportunity knocked and we opened the doors further knowledge when we entered the special serv- ices during our second year of training. Following the month in diet school, relentless was she who did not refrain from quarreling with the dietitian concerning an error in a new diet, or an old one. It was miraculous that such few mistakes occurred in the hustle and bustle of the preparation of so much food. Ours were expressions of awe those first few days in the operating room. We stared ' breathlessly in utter amazement at the miracles that were per- formed before us by the experienced hands of the surgeons and nurses. The thrill of a lifetime came after we had been “scrubbed in” for the last time and were allowed to scrub alone throughout an entire operation. The stillness of the delivery room as a new life was ushered into the world brought with it a feeling of reverence that could not be perceived elsewhere. Just as some of us were anxiously waiting our visit to Kernan’s Hospital during our pediatric service, one of the patients would invariably initiate an epidemic of chickenpox, thus cancelling our tour. Those trim black velvet bands that were added to our caps at the beginning of our third year added a note of distinction to our uniforms and set us aglow because now we knew we were really well on the way to becoming graduate nurses. And now as the last lap of the road is in sight we are a little sad at leaving the things which in the past have been so dear to us. May we always remember the helping hands of our head nurses and supervisors — the looks of our patients as we began a day anew — the doctors who have aided us in understanding the science of every new disease — and the quietness in a lonely room where a member of mankind has drawn his last breath. Three years ago we wondered if we had chosen the right path, but now, more than ever before, we are certain that in years to come we will be proud to look back to our days as students, when we only began to learn of the Miracle of Medicine. 196 THE FLORENCE NIGHTENGALE PLEDGE I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly ad- minister any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to elevate the standard of my profession, and I will hold in confidence all personal mat- ters committed to my keeping, and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aide the physician in his work, and to devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care. 197 We wish to express our thanks to the following for financially assisting us in preparing this edition of Terra Mariae Medicus.

The first act of the regents was to issue a circular announcing their restoration and urging the support of their friends and the alumni. Finan- cial aid was needed, as the university was never endowed. Bills were met by the faculty and friends of the school. Anatomical dissection w as made compulsory in 1848 and gas lights introduced into the dissecting rooms enabled the students to spend their evenings dissecting, so as not to interrupt their daily schedule of lectures. Prior to 1848 anatomical dissection was an elective, though popular, course. The period 1860 to 1865 was one of decline in attendance at the school, due to the war between the states, for much of the student body came from the South. At this time a lecture series devoted to military surgery and hygiene was given. Following the war there was a period of rapid growth and development of the university. Many of the best physicians of the South moved to Baltimore and joined the faculty of the medical school. In 1888, the so-called “Burking Case” occurred. The janitor of the medical school, known as Uncle DEPARTMENT ( Continued this law unclaimed bodies in the state were assigned to the medical school for use in teach- ing anatomy. There is a period of confusion but we do know that in 1891 Dr. Randolph Win- slow was professor of anatomy and Drs. J. Holm- es Smith and Ridgely B. Warfield demonstrators. Winslow was an outstanding intellect who held an M.A. in Greek and was graduated from the university in 1873. In 1902, two weeks after commencement exer- cises, Dr. Tiffany, then professor of surgery, suf- fered a coronary occlusion and retired. Winslow became professor of surgery, and thereby relin- quished his anatomical duties. School of Medicine from Page 7) Perry, and one John Ross were in need of money. Knowing that the department of anatomy would give $15.00 for a dead body they entered the home of old Emily Brown on Pig Alley near Pratt Street. After overpowering her, they caused her death, then placed the corpse in a wheel barrow which they pushed up Greene Street to the school. When the anatomy department received the body the police were notified. After an investigation the pair were arrested. The janitor escaped and was never found, but his accomplice was tried, found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. His public hanging at the city jail attracted a large crowd of spectators. The case received considerable attention in the press of that day. The practice of written examinations was begun in 1889, a student being required to have a general average of 65 and no single grade under 33 in order to obtain his degree. Also all applicants for admission to the school were required either to have a college or high school degree or to pass a preliminary examination consisting of English composition and the translation of Latin prose. Further changes occurred with merger of the Baltimore Medical College in 1913 and with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Baltimore in 1915. Through the latter union was effected control of the teaching beds of Mercy Hospital by the University. OF ANATOMY from Page 79) Dr. J. Holmes Smith was then elevated to the chair of anatomy, and has the distinction of being the first full-time professor in the history of the university. Smith fell victim to a coronary occlusion in 1912 and was succeeded by J. W. Holland. Following Holland, the next man to hold the chair in anatomy was Dr. Carl L. Davis who re- mained as head of the department until 1948 when he was retired. Associated with him for the majority of the time had been Dr. Eduard Uhlenhuth who is the present head of the depart- ment. MR. GEORGE H. BUCK t)irector iniversity JloSpital The Library . . .

The remarkable state of preservation and the careful restoration of the fine calf bindings of these volumes is indicative of the care bestowed on them by the library staff. The Crawford col- lection contains many original editions of the classics of medicine, including works dating from the 16th century and bound in their original vellum. An appreciation of the value of the collection can be had by noting that a number of its titles have made their way into the Bibliotheca Osleriana. The Hospital . . .

Nursing at the hospital was carried on by the Sisters of Charity from 1823 until 1879 and from 1880 until 1889 by the Sisters of Mercy. The present Nursing School was organized by Louisa Parsons, from Florence Nightingale’s famous school of nursing at St. Thomas’s Hospital, London. 212
