From the thou- sands of professions and occupations which pre- sent themselves some choose to become the servants of mankind, the healers of the sick, the comforters of the mind and body. They choose the medical profession. Let us follow the growth of the infant brought into this world by our " horse and buggy " doctor. What does life hold for him? Childhood comes and goes but deep in the far recesses of his mind an ambition has taken root. " And what are you going to be when you grow up, little boy? " " I want to be a cowboy, a fireman, a doctor. " As happens with most children the cowboy and fireman existence is dropped, but the desire to be a doctor becomes more deeply ingrained. This is now a goal to be sought and obtained. What about the others who have made the same decision and have gone before us from our school? It is impossible to know of all of them, but here is the story of their organization. An Alumni Association of the University of Maryland. School of Medicine, was founded at some date now unknown. However in 1936 it was reorganized as a non-profit organization and has been an integrated and smoothly functioning body since then. At the present it is composed of about 4000 living members, about half of whom are active in the affairs of the organiza- tion. The purpose of the group is perpetuating those associations which began during profes- sional student life and keeping alive the interest in its Alma Mater and advancing in every legiti- mate way her welfare. Also this group keeps an up-to-date record of all the graduates of the School of Medicine. They publish and help finance the Bulletin of the Uni- versity of Maryland, a scientific periodical. It is m O SttL ■,u ■1 . Jfe ■ i t ' ' - S i F H te -u ' " BS P SSm ' pBL possible fur a need student tn appU for and re- ceive fiiiaricial aid.

Some of these men have become our able and willing teachers whom we all know. admire and respect. Others we will meet when w ' too are engaged in the practice of medicine and we are anxious for and looking forward to this meeting. But it is to all of ou who have ])re- ceded us. to all of you who have inspired us and guided us in the study of medicine and will continue to do so the rest of our lives, to you who have led us and aided us in the past and will do so in the future, it is to you as a group, the Alumni Associa- tion, llniversity of Marvland.

Headed by the Dean ' s office, this large organization of workers is constant concerned with the welfare of the school, students. facult and alunnii as well as the constant planning required for the nuriad of courses which go into the making ujj a compre- hensive medical curriculum, the procurement of instructors, the maintenance of the buildings and grounds, the accurate accounting of funds and the planning of extension teaching for alumni. The student perha|)s is most familiar with the Deans office, for it is through this ofiice that the directixcs and general information concerning his life at medical school are issued. Tlic e(licicnc and smooth functioning of this office cannot be mentioned without some reference to Miss (!onway, whose kind cooperation and willingness to help in any wa will be indelibly impressed upon our memory.

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE February 24. 195J TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 195J To the members of this class I send my warmest wishes for a satisfying career in the field of medicine. Up lo this time you have been guided by experienced hands of others, soon your future will rest in your own hands. The degree of satisfaction derived froin your work as a physician will depend on the extent of responsibility you are willing to assume in promotion of the welfare of your patients. It is my hope that when you turn back the pages of memory in after years you will be wholly satisfied with your sense of responsibility in this respect. Good luck! A H. Boy Wylie.

Although predominaiitK (■oni|)osc(l of Marv- landers, this number includes students from all |iarls of the I nited States and her possessions: from Maine to Puerto Kico and from the Atlantic to the sunny isle of Hawaii in the Pacific. The list of alma maters of the class members reads like a " Who ' s Who of American (Colleges. " Among those r ' |)rocMlc(l are Yale. Princeton. William and Mar . Mrown. and Washington and Lee. not to forget the fighting irislmuiri from Notre Dame or the stale college contingents from I lah and West Virginia.

On (he whole the I47th class of the meilical sclniol is oimger than its r ' c ' nt predecessors and the percentage of eterans and married men is consideraliU lower. However, we do boast of representatives from all branihes of the ser ice. As for the marital situation, one of our nuMubcrs walked ihc aisle during the recent school vear and sexeral more ha c inadc plans for being married this Spring. The extra curricular aclix ities of the class lia e co ered a wide field of endeavor. There are few hospitals in the cit that do not boast of one of the class mendjers serving in one capacity or another. The class as a whole was an acti ( ' one. alwa s being well re|)re- sented at the school dances and and)ilious enough to present a Christmas dance in conjunction with the School of Nursing, and a Spring outing also. We hope to make these annual affairs. The class of 1956. although a higliK active one. is also a highly studious one and we are proud of our accoiTiplishments this vear. To Doctors Figge. Krahl. Schmidt. Amberson and finesinger. and to the members of their ilepartmenls we are profoundlv grateful. This ear has been a verv enlightening one and we are looking forward to the next three with renewed vigor.

Since that time many illustrious names have appeared as head of the department. Dr. Eduard Uhlenhuth joined the staff of the University of Maryland in 1925 and became the head of the Department of Anatomy upon the retirement of Dr. Carl Davis in 1948. Today the department includes that of anatomy, histology and embryology. As Dr. Uhlenhuth ' s 25th Anniversity Class we feel especially proud to list ourselves with others of the medical profession who have been taught l) this most impressive of teachers. The dis- section of the human body has known stormy (lavs in the last 400 vears, but we as freshmen Eduard Uhlenhuth. Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and head of the department.

In his teaching capacity he has been head of the Histology faculty since 1949. HISTOLOGY During our freshman year we were fortunate indeed to come in contact with Dr. Frank H. J. Figge and his staff who taught us not only his- tology and embryology but also how to critically analyze motion pictures. We were tutored in aspects of cellular structure, their relationships in the various organs and systems and their func- tions. The workings of the microscope were no longer strange to us. This question is a snap. 20 A quintet nf ijcntose hunleis. BIOCHEMISTRY The University of Wisconsin has long been noted for its ability to |)rociu(o hiocheniists and not the least of these is Dr. Kinil Schniidl. who was appointetl 111 ihi ' (Irparliiifiit in 1925. During the second semester of the first year we became well aware of the fact that he was out to teach us our last loniial course in chem- istry, especialh as applied to the human body. We also learned that he fostered a well-trained ulcer which like any such deyice acted up right on schedule when spring came around. But with the help of Amphojel and with Ur.

He has been head of the department since 1948. we were introduced into the complexities and functions of coenzymes and the utilization of glucose. It might be said that he carried us from coenzyme I to valine. It was here we got our first practical experi- ence as to what lay ahead for us as clinical clerks and interns. We became very familiar with Benedicts, benzidine, BL N and BSP. It was here too that we tried to convince ourselves that maybe two blood sugars from the same sample could read 264 mg different. We were also plagued by that most irritating of inventions, the decimal point. When plead- ingly we took the sample to Dr. Schmidt with the correct answer but the decimal in the wrong place we only got the answer. " Sorry, son, that patient died a week ago.

But what if you ' re color blind? 22 PHYSIOLOGY From Dr. Amliersun s experiences at Woods Hole and I psala to the Dofi Fig:ht of 1950 we thoroughly enjoyed our assoeialion willi the De- partment of Physiology. This alile group of men had as its goal the desire to impress u|)on our slap-happy synapses the functions of the luirnaii body. We feel that they succeedetl. at least to a certain degree. We know that we did not learn ail that was offered, hut tlie did leave us with the feeling that there is some semblance of order to the human body and a desire to learn more about it in the years to come. The atnujsphere was always that of encouraging inquiry on our part. The " Dog Fight of laiO " ubirh «as ably sparked by the Department of Phxsiology and assisted by many hundreds of their fellows in- terested in science throughout the ( " ity of Bal- timore, and indeed the entire nation, gave to all Me ( of us an experience that will long be remembered. We, as so|jhomores. took (|uile an active part in hel| iiig further medical scientific research when our aid by distributing literature at the polling places helped defeat an ordinance which would have forbade the use of animals for research and study. It was during our course of physiology that we received our first glimpse of the functioning of the liunian bo(l before rigor mortis has set in. Through very well thought out and ably presented lectures on tiie heart, kidney, liver. digestive system, respiratory function, vascular atui endocrine systems and other iiodiU functions we were able to iew the boil as a li ing in- tegrated whole.

Professor oj Psychkitry and Head oj the Department. He has been at Maryland since 1950 after gradu- ating from Johns Hopkins and doing post-graduate work at Harvard. He has been instrumental in the expansion of the psychiatry program at Maryland which has resulted in the building of the new Psvchiatric Institute. The Department of Psychiatry has been func- tioning at the School of Medicine for the past 25 years, but it was not until January. 1950, when Dr. Jacob E. Finesinger was appointed that it had its first full-time professor. Dr. Ross McFu Chapman, a past director of Shepard Pratt Hos- pital, was the first Professor of Psychiatry, serv- ing from 1923 to 1948. When Dr. Finesinger arrived in 1950 and in- troduced us to our course he posed the question " How do you feel about that? " With this and similar questions rolling around in our brains we were forced to conclude that certain events had occurred. We decided that we could answer the question without having much idea of what we were answering and secondly, that this was not going to be a series of didactic lectures. When at last he told us that we were adults and Well, what do you think about that? 26 Upper rifihl — Where ' s the Coke machine?

This was a new attitude toward edu- cation and one which was met with mixed emo- tions. By the end of the first year we realized that there was much to be learned from Dr. Finesing- er ' s general discussion periods and seminars. We continued to cultivate our interview tech- nique in the sophomore year and also received fiidactic material. Our junior year saw increased activity on our part. We journeyed to Shepard Pratt and Spring Grove Hospitals, received a good short course in psychoses from Ur. Tuerk. and spent several sessions interview in patients and discussing diagnosis. in our senior year we spent one whole imumIIi on psychiatry and were quite pleased to be the first senior class to go through our tour of duty in the new l ' s chiatric Institute.

With equal emphasis upon research and teaching facilities, it shows the fruits of good planning and active sup|)ort. Dr. Finesinger and Dr. Greenhill and the other me mbers of this department have a big job ahead of them, but from our brief but lasting associa- tion with them we have the feeling that they will do much to make the University of Maryland.

The courses came closer to our final goal: the little touch of clinical medicine gave us a better glimpse of the practice of medicine, and we liked what we sayv. We started to study disease processes, and there was a certain thrill in finally learning just yvhat those names ban- died about in the past really meant. Most important of all. we began to learn how little we know. As if that yvasn t enough, yvhen we started to study for State Boards, we realized how much we had forgotten.

W. Hachtel and the more intimate workings of the bacteri-ah. Many hundreds of doctors have come to know the above mentioned gentleman who so zealously guards the " bugs ' on the 2nd floor and has as his ded- icated purpose the teaching of bacteriology to those who come into daily contact with results of bacterial infection. Dr. Hachtel joined the department in 1923. The ear 19.51 saw added activil in the de- |)artnient when Drs. Steers and Smith became part of the teaching staff. In addition to teach- ing, these men are accentuating the much needed backbone of modern medicine — research. In- terested in both the biochemical processes of bac- teria and the nature of viruses they can do much to strengthen and expand this branch of our basic medical curriculum. It was in the Department of Bacteriology that we realized there is an art to medicine, especially when it came to deciding such things as Brownian movement vs motility. We stabbed slants, plas- tered plates, incubated agars and tried to guess which one was the contaminant. In nuv last week in Bacteriology we went through that horrible ordeal called a practical but more affectionately known as Frank ' s Fan- tasia. Each morning we eagerly dashed to the FRANK W.

Words like litre, agglutination, hemolysins and flocculation soon trickled off our tongues with such alacrity as to bring awe into the eyes of every freshman. We mixed sheep cells, guinea pig serum, washed human cells and a couple of drops from an old bottle, incubated, w ater-bathed and come out with results beyond compare.

Ph.D. Assistant Professor ' of Medicine in Neurology NEUROLOGY One of the more instructive courses in the clinical years was neurology. If not it wasn ' t the fault of the staff members who did the teach- ing. These men did their upmost to dispel our fears of the subject and at times had us believing that we. too, could make a diagnosis that was correct. Beginning with Dr. Teitelbaum " s lectures in the second year, we successively received lec- tures from Drs. Merrill. Fearing and Lerner. Dr. George Merrill, a mixture of doctor, farmer and preacher, brightened our Saturday mornings with two-handed drawings, ten minute quizzes and imitations of tabetics while giving us formal lectures on how to conduct a neurological ex- amination and information on some of the more frequently met neurological disorders. Dr. William Fearing, the curator of the mu- seum at City Hospitals, gave us some very in- structive sessions on chronic conditions. Here, armed with flashlights, ophthalmoscope, pins. reflex hammers and wisps of cotton, we advanced upon the patient and after much tapping, pulling and poking would trv to come up with the correct diagnosis. Many of us are still looking for a clear cut case of temporal pallor. Dr. Lerner is chief of the Neurology Clinic at Mercy and as such guided us in our first ap- plication of the principles we had been taught in the years before and also helped us separate psychiatric from medical neurological problems. He also gave us the present day concepts on such common disorders as coma, epilepsy and Park- insonism and discussed their therapy. Dr. Cotter and others of the department com- pleted the picture by conducting some very in- teresting clinics and ward rounds with the help of the staff at University Hospital.

Hrofessor uj falholofiy and Head oj the Department, graduated from the Ballimore Medical School in 1910 and has been assDciatefl with the I riiversity since that time. He started out with physiology as his main interest, hut a year later switched to pathology. During World War I he served as a pathologist and was overseas for thirteen months. Dr. .Spencer has been the er aide department hea l for some years. Now, in Buddhaism, for example PATHOLOGY One of the most profitable experiences that can happen to any medical student is his asso- ciation with the study of pathology. Here at the University of Maryland this has long been recognized and we were indeed fortunate to have been taught by the mendjers of this department. As early as 1838 there was a desire on the part of Davidge and Potter to establish the teaching of pathology under a separate head, but it was not until 1847 when a lectureship under Dr. G. W. Mittenberger was established that this desire was realized. One of the early difficulties was the dearth of good teaching material. For many years the Almshouse, later BCH, was the sole source of material. This, added to the private collection of Dr. G. S. Pattison, was the only available material. When Christopher Johnson became Lecturer in Experimental Physiology and Microscopy in 1855 he stimulated the use of the microscope in studying pathologic specimens. This increased the student ' s ability to learn and a desire for more autopsies. W. A. Hammond 35 in 1861 succeeded Johnson and obtained three microscopes for student use. After Dr. Ham- mond, Drs. F. Donaldson, 1866-1880. and I. E. Atkinson, 1881-1886, successively occupied the chief spot in the department. The late 1800 " s saw two graduates of this school attaining prominence in the field of path- ology. These were N. G. Keirle and W. T. Coun- cilman. It wasn ' t until 1915 that full-time teach- ers were employed. The first of these was Dr. W. R. Stokes, 1915-1919. In 1921 Dr. Hugh R. Spencer, present head of the department, assumed his professorship and through his leadership there has developed at the University of Mary- land one of the finest teaching groups in the country. We first came into contact with the department in the second year when we had lectures on the subject and studied microscopic sections. In the third year we split into small groups which with the aid of the twin stimuli of a high, hard stool and an eyeful of formalin, learned what some of the gross lesions of the various organs are. It was during this year that we attended our required number of autopsies. At these we assisted, observed and obtained a good workable knowledge of the effect disease processes have upon the bodily organs. In writing up these autopsies we correlated pathology with physi- ology and physical signs. In the senior year we came to enjoy that most stimulating of exercises, the CPC. First added to the teaching curriculum in 1913, this forum allows the students and professors to meet on equal footing and vie for the correct diagnosis. Here we bowed on the fact and the rather thor- ough coup-de-grace administered by Dr. Spencer and the members of his staff. Much was learned by all during these sessions.

Actually we weren ' t surprised to hear the perfect diction of Dr. Krantz, but we were amazed to find that we had to come to medical school to hear the English language spoken as few take the care to speak it. However we soon came to realize that it was not our lot to sit and admire the smooth manner of Dr. Krantz and the mild thoroughness of Dr. Carr. To the contrary, after the first tea-party it was strongly hinted by our classmates that we should know the action of drugs well. We met pharmacology during our sophomore John C. Krantz, Jr., Ph.D., D.Sc, Professor of Pharmacology and Head of the Department, assumed his present post in the year 1932. after obtaining his Ph.D. from Maryland in 1928. He is the receiver of honorary degrees from other institutions, the Simon Medal and the Ebert Prize in Chemis- try. He has been the director of Sharp and Dohme Pharmaceutical research. Chief of Maryland bureau of chemistry and since 1940 chairman of the U. S. Pharmacoepia Revision. He is also the author of several texts ( pharmacology and speech) . year and were given a very complete and thor- ough lecture course on drugs, their properties and actions. The laboratory periods were well integrated with lecture material and it was here that we could observe firsthand the pharmaco- logical action of various preparation on animals. We began to learn dosage, forms of drugs and had much practice in filling out the physician ' s calling card — the prescription blank. Aside from displaying their pleasing teaching talents and running a very instructive course, the members of this department are actively en- gaged in many activities including research. In looking back we find that although this course had its challenging moments we are proud to have passed some time with Dr. Krantz and his efficient group who are continually searching for new therapeutic agents and who are aiding others of the school to maintain the name of the Univer- sity of Maryland.

M.D.. Professor of Roentgenology and the Head of the Department, graduated from the University of Virginia in 1933. He received radio- logical training at the same institution and in Cin- cinnati. He has been connected with the University of Maryland since 1936, except for a four year period when he was with the U. S. Army in the Pacific. ROENTGENOLOGY Ever since Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen first in- troduced the use of X-ray into the world this branch of science has come to play an ever in- creasingly important role in medicine. At the University of Maryland we are fortunate i ndeed to have a most efficient department and one which is proud of its past and the role it has played in medicine. As early as April. 1896. scarcely four months after Roentgen ' s announcement, positive evidence was forthcoming that there existed at the Uni- versity of Maryland ideas as to how X-ray might play an important part in diagnosis. It was at this time that Dr. John C. Hemmeter, Professor of Gastroenterology, published his article " Pho- tography of the Human Stomach " . The first X-ray apparatus for general use was installed in the second floor of the University Hospital annex in the summer of lo96. At first no particular person was in charge of the apparatus and its use was both promiscuous and practical. In the year 1900 the department was organized with Dr. Compton Riely as head. His tenure was short lived because the X-ray was causing severe Codington confirms his impression. burns and desquamation of his hands. He was succeeded by Dr. William Bryant Fitch in 1901 who served until 1904 when he resigned because of poor health. Dr. Nathan Winslow then as- sumed the role of head of the department but he, too. was forced to resign because he also suffered the early uncontrolled effects of X-ray. Among his notes are found these observations: Proper examination of the hands takes 1 minute, chest 3 minutes, kidney 8-10 miimtes and the pelvis r minutes. He was succeeded by Dr. Howard E. Ashbury who resigned 1911. New life was instilled into the department when Dr. Robert (Ihandlec became head in 1911. This man was one of the pioneers of X-ray and a great teacher. He travelled abroad and brought back the first radium to be used for skin lesions in Haltimore. His successor. Dr. H. J. Walton, set up the first full time X-ray department in Baltimore in 1923. In 1936 Dr. Walter Kilby joined Dr. Walton, first Professor Emeritus, and after his retirement became head of the Dejiart- ment of Hoentyenoloiiv.

No pathology? 43 GYNECOLOGY The Department of Gynecology had a very humble and modest beginning. About 1849 we find the first mention of actual delivery of lec- tures on " Diseases of Women " by Professor Rich- ard H. Thomas. Actually the department did not have its beginning until 1867 when it for- mally organized with Dr. W. T. Howard as its head. URVUPV 3Y5TfM " Now, compared to Father ' s Tumor . . . His successor was Dr. Thcimas Ashl hIi " up- held the position in every respect. Dr. William Gardner succeeded Dr. Ashhv in 1016. He was instrumental in establishing the Oncolo{; Depart- ment and persuaded department members to carry on further research. The use of radium was also becoming more widespread and the in- formation assimilated within the department helped others to better understand the use of this valuable material in gvnecologic problems. Dr. J. Mason Hundley, Jr., became head of the department in 1936 and under his leadership a most efficient and progressive group have taken over the teaching of gynecology. Dr. Hundley was Associate Professor in 1927 and 1931 saw him going to Germany for further study in Kiel and Berlin. In our junior vear we were introduced to gvnecologv bv a series of lectures upon the sub- ject b various members oi the staff. Dr. Diehls lectures on malignancies of the female organs were especially well received. During our senior year we spent our time in the clinics, clinical conferences, seminars, and operative clinic.

After graduation he entered general practice while con- tinuing his studies at Johns Hopkins and the University. He became inter- ested in dermatology and in 1933 ob- tained his American Boards. In 1937 he was appointed Professor of Derma- tology and has continued with his research in dermatologicai problems as well as building up a fine teaching clinic. DERMATOLOGY One of the most colorful of the departments is the one which holds forth in the basement of the dispensary build- ing. Its purpose is to teach everyone to recognize the fifty most common skin lesions. As juniors we held weekly quiz- zes under Robbie Sr., who made dire threats about our future if we didn ' t start soaking up some dermatology. As seniors we received a concentrated dose of teaching talent and clin- ical material. This department did more than just present a course. They went out of their way to retain the clinical material for all of us to see. The crowning moments were the seminars held in Gordon Wilson with Robbie Sr. in charge. We will never forget P. R., L.

Dr. George Brown, an Irishman hy birth, was the first to be appointed the head of the Department, but he resigned immediateK in favor of Dr. Na- thaniel Potter. Dr. Potter, who was Professor of Medicine for thirty-six years, was a native of the Eastern Shore and received his MD at the I ni- versity of Pennsylvania. He wrote several trea- tises, the most notable of which was Potter on Contasiiou. in which he advanced the theory of the non-contagious nature of Yellow Fever. In addition to his teaching duties he was kept busy trving to hold the newlv founded school together and battle an unfriendlv administration. An example of his difliculty is illustrated b Profes- sor Potter ' s first fight with the janitor. This occurred u hen the Professor tried to stop the janitor from running a gambling den behind (ihemical Mall and selling whiskey to the stu- 7 Maurice C. Pincoffs. B.S.. M.D.. Professor of Medicine and the Head of the Department, graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1912. During World War I he re- ceived the DSC and Croix de Guerre and in World War II was a Brigadier Gen- eral in the Medical Corps. Since 1921 he has been a Professor of Medicine at the University, is Editor of the Annals of Internal Medicine, and is the Assis- tant to the President of the University as regards the Medical School. Upper ri ht — You learn by observ- ing .. . Lower — . . . and you learn hv doing. dents. The administration ignored Dr. Potter ' s complaint and refused to take action. In 1843 Drs. Joseph Roby and Richard Stew- art were successive occupants of the professor- ship. Dr. Elisha Bartlett was appointed in 1844 but only held this position two years. His suc- cessor was Dr. William Powers, a graduate of the University of Maryland. He was a brilliant and able teacher and his untimely death from tuberculosis was a great loss to the University. The next man to head the department was Dr. Samuel Chew. He headed it through the stormy years just before and during the Civil War and managed to keep the school going despite a dearth of students. His successor. Dr. Richard McSherry. was a militarv doctor who had gained 48 Hislorv takiii " is a fine art. renown in the Mexican War. When Dr. jMc- Sherry died in liUJS, Dr. Samuel ( ' .. (Ihew, son of Dr. Chew, was promoted to Professor of Medi- cine. He served in that caiiacitN until 1010 and did much to improve and moderni .e the depart- ment. Dr. (Jordon Wilson was appointed to the Chair of Medicine in 191.1 A graduate of the I niver- silv of Virginia in l!!y9 he was resident physician under Osier and studied under Dr. Welch and later under Dr. Chiari at Strashourg.

Here at the University of Maryland obstetrics has been formally taught since 1813 when Dr. Richard Hall gave his first series of lectures. The present head of the department. Dr. Louis H. Douglass, has been teaching obstetrics for more than forty years. He became head of the department in 1938 and through his undying de- sire for better obstetrics has built the department into a highly efficient organization. The course in obstetrics was one continuous integrated series of lectures and clinics which were spread over a three year period. In our sophomore year we were given our introduction to the subject by Dr. Reese. Our junior year included a series of didactic lectures by various members of the staff, a " dry " clinic on the tech- Lot is H. Douglass, M.D..

At City we were brought out of the textbook and faced with actual deliveries. We enjoyed all of it and especially our association with Dr. Emer- son Fackler and his staff. Our senior year was a fitting climax. During our two week stay we probably lost more sleep than we ever had in our lives. We were assigned to the delivery suite and there assisted the visit- ing men, observed some of the more complicated deliveries, and delivered a few babies ourselves. We also made daily ward rounds with the staff and attended conferences. We concluded that arrival times should be better scheduled. B. P. h. Well.

Although engaged in an active practice, he was an instructor of pediatrics at the Lni- versity. In 1946 he hecanie the Direc- tor of Pediatrics at the Permonte Foundation in California and Oregon. In 1948 he returned to the University as a full-time professor and was appointed the department head. PEDIATRICS Although pediatrics was not recognized as an important and separate department when the School of Medicine was established, still, as far back as 1845 we find that instruction was being given in the diseases of children. The first record states that they were " treated and explained " by Professor Hall, who had the title of Professor of Midwifery. Diseases of Women and Children. Dr. William Howard was elected to the newly created chair of Diseases of Women and Children in 1867 in what was perhaps the earliest recog- nition in this country of these departments as independent branches of medicine. It was not until 30 years later, in 1897. that the Department of Diseases of Children emerged as an independent entity.

Our introduction to pediatrics ( anic U us dur- ing the junior year at which time a series of lectures were given by various members of the staff. They consist of formal lectures in the growth and development of the newborn, infant feeding and fundamentals of diseases of infants and children.

Our first handling of children conies also during the junior year when we ex- amine infants and children and write up the physical and discuss the physical findings. In our senior year we were glad to have been associated with this department because they pre- sented a fine, concentrated, instructive course. We were divided into two sections — Mercy and University. The relative merits of these sections are difficuh to evaluate from the participants. Those at the Lniversity swore they were slaves — we have reason to believe different — and those at Mercy say they practiced more pediatrics walking from University Hospital to Mercy Hospital than did their confreres during the entire month. We feel that both learned their due amount. Take a deep breath.

Several vears later he hegan his annual series of lectures in his office. These lectures were the licginiiing if the present school. When the medical school was founded. Dr. Davidge, because of his early interest and prom- inence in the community, and Dr. James Cocke were appointed co-Professors of Surgery. Ana- tomy and Physiology. In 1812 Dr. William Gihson was appointed Professor of .Surgerv. After his resignation Dr. (Jrainille Pattison was appointed and held that position until 1826. In 1827 Dr. Nathan Smith. previousK Professor of Surgery at Jefferson Medical .School, assumed the role of Professor of .Surger and held this |)osition for 4.H ears. In 1869 Dr. ( lirislopher Johnson succeeded him. A versatile and capable man. his interests included art. microscopy and scientific writing. He performed an extirpation of the mandihie in 1873 and repair of extrophv of the Madder in 1876. Dr. Louis Tiffany was a|)|)ointed to head the (Icparlmctit in l!!81.

Medical school training which had been a two year course with total fees of $120 was increased to three years in 1891 and five )ears later to four years. Lister ' s antiseptic technique and improvements in anes- thesia now made elective surgery possible. Dr. Tiffany himself reported cases of successful col- ostomy in 1877 and in 1885 he did the first nephrolithotomy in the U.S. Several other teach- ing units and hospitals were opened around this time, most notable the Baltimore Eye and Ear Hospital and in 1889 the John Hopkins Hospital. In 1897. the present out-patient clinic was built for $70,000. At that time it was the new Uni- versity Hospital which replaced the Old Univer- sity Infirmary built in 1874. Another great ad- vance during Dr. Tiffany ' s time was the adoption of the Anatomv Law in 1882. which assigned to the medical college all unclaimed bodies. In 1873 Randolph Winslow finished the two year course at the medical school. He held nu- merous appointments at the Liniversity and in 1902 he became Professor of Surgery. Dr. Wins- low was a prolific author and avid student. He was noted for his studies of gunshot wounds and goitre. In 1888 he performed the first vaginal hvsterectomv in Maryland. Post-operative care.

College of Physi- cians and Surgeons, and the I niversitv in 191.5- 17 made much more clinical material availahle for teaching. Dr. .Shipley made good of this facilit and stressed the hedside teaching of the student. The first World War hrought inanx new ad- vances to surgery. Dr. Shipley, who served in the I .S. Army, was ahle to use Dakin " s solution in wound irrigation. The benefit of this and other advances such as whole blood transfusion, better techniques in colon surgery and ortho- pedics and clinical laboratory measurement were soon manifested in the type of surgery done and the decreasing mortality rate. The present Lniversity Hospital was built in 1934 and incorporated the facilities necessary for modern surgerv. Soon after this the succes- Harry C. Hull, M.D..

With the retirement of Dr. Shipley in 1948, Dr. Charles Reid Edwards was appointed to the head of the department. He has carried forth in the spirit of his predecessors and in our senior Shades of years gone by. year we came fully under the influence of Dr. Edwards and his staff. We had previously started our quest for sur- gical knowledge in the sophomore year when we met with Dr. " Turk " " Adams. He gave us an in- troductory series of lectures on surgery. In our junior year we were exposed to the teachings of Dr. Harry Hull in what was con- sidered by many class members to be the best prolonged series of lectures bv one man in the entire curriculum. We soon came to enjoy his earl morning class which was always studded with anecdotes, aphorisms and tales of the past greats in surgery. Occasionally, however, we were left with red faces and a feeling somewhat akin to his proverbial " pithed goat " ' when in a spot quiz we failed to come up with some of his 1 — 2 — 3 " s. All was not didactic because we sincerely enjoyed our rounds at B.C.H. with Drs. Brantigan and Adams. As seniors we saw enough of the insides of the O.R.

The anatomy and physiologv of the c e were discussed by Ur. Osazewski. as well as some of the more common ocular diseases. We also spent time at the Baltimore Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital seeing slides of pathological fundi and viewing eye grounds of patients. Most of our e. perience in ophthalmology in the fourth year was gained during the month we spent at the eye clinic. Here we took histories, examined the eye and treated a variety of ocular conditions. Also at this time the slit lamp and other special instruments were demonstrated.

RICHARD MOFFETT BALDWIN Dick deserted his home state of Florida where he was born in 1928 to come north for educational purposes. He attended both Loyola High School and College; during this time his list of good-looking single women grew from the embryo to its present proportion. Salis- bury gained Dick ' s professional and other attributes in summer ' 52 when he externed at Peninsula General. It is rumored he worked every other night at the hospital and every other night at Ocean City, but Dick denies this saying he did find time for golf.

Two years were spent in the Marine Corps including 56 days on the " Seapike " and a tour of " rough duty " on Okinawa. After winning the war he attended Western Maryland College, graduated in 1949. While there he met Wanda whom he married in January, 1953. During medical school George has been an easy-going, jovial person; yet one who is quite capable of sobriety if the occasion demands. He enjoyed work in the clinics and got a special " charge " out of the " crocks. " Future plans in- clude interning in Baltimore but after that his plans are indefinite. SCOTT BRUCE BERKELEY, JR. Bruce arrived in December. 1927, a little early for Christmas but his parents decided to keep him anyway. After leaving high school in Goldsboro, N.C., young Berkele} decided to make his fortune at the University of North Carolina where he got his A.B. in spite of the KA party life. Then he went to the U.N.C. medical school where he excelled in extra-curricular activities as well as studies. After two years Bruce transferred to the big city to finish medicine. In the intervening summers he was foremost surgical consultant at Wayne County Memorial Hospital and will probably continue his career in surgery. What ' s Gable got that I ain ' t got?

Boh ' s professional am- liition is to become associated with a school so thai lie can combine practice, research and teaching. SAMUEL BLUMENFELD Sam is one of the more thoughtful type of student who loves to relax while listening to the opera or playing bridge. Before starting his college education he served two-and-one-half years in the Air Force, and then went to College Park where he obtained his B.A. in English after only three years of study. He has been married to Wilma for almost two years, has no children. He spent one summer with Dr. Sacks working in the Hematology department. He hopes to intern in Baltimore and perhaps pursue a career in internal medicine. 69 JAMES ERNEST BOGGS Jim was born in 1926 at Ivydale, a small town in Clay County. W.Va. In 1945, after a year at W.Va.U. he enlisted in the armed forces, taking his basic training at Camp Crowder, Mo. After eighteen months of service he resumed his premedical studies and received his B.A. degree in 1949, entering University of Maryland Medical School in the fall. Jim usually goes back to West Virginia during the summers and during the senior year he served as an extern at St. Joseph ' s Hospital in Baltimore. He is married and plans to specialize following internship but he hasn ' t yet made up his mind as to what specialty. vBl 1 j r J ' g mh JOSEPH RICHARD BOVE Joe grew up as a shy hoy in Orange, N.J.. and some- where between a Ship Salvage and Rescue unit of the U.S. Navv and the pre-medical vears at the University of Maryland blossomed into the outspoken, keen, and critical student of medicine that we know. He is an active Nu Sig. an incurable lover of the great outdoors, and has ably handled the photography editing of this yearbook. In June. 1952, he married the former Nancy Harrison, and is planning to settle in a small New England village where he can indulge his yen for hiking, skiing, fishing, raising a family and practicing good medicine. I GEORGE ROSS BRINKLEY, JR. Ross, the affable gentleman from Clarksburg, W.Va., has a background as variegated as an autumn forest scene. George graduated from W.Va.U. and Army Air Force. At different times he has been a social worker for the Public Works Department, a race track guard, and a scrub nurse at South Baltimore General. In 1949 he married Jean and at the present time boasts two female additions to the family. Both Jean and Ross are inter- ested in training and showing boxers as well as little Brinkleys.

Tom is one of our many Loyola graduates and is also one of our veteran married men having been married to Anne in 1946. A good part of his sojourn on this fair earth was spent with Lncle Sam — eighteen months in the 82nd Airborne and 30 months in the Army. Besides Phi Beta Pi. Tom ' s extracurricular activities are many and varied. He states his hobbies are everything including parakeeting.

After graduation from McDonogh School he attended Duke I niversit then returned to Baltimore for his medical education. In June. 1952. he was married to Rosamond Kraus. Don spent his summers during med school working at the parimutuel windows at race tracks in and around Baltimore with the exception of one summer when he externed at Maryland General. Don ' s ambition to practice plastic surgery will probably have to be postponed until he completes a tour of duty in the service. Don is a Nu Sig and is well knoun for his love of a good party.

Relegating the bridge to a place of secondary importance, he followed the black bag to medical school. Events during medical school in- cluded membership in Phi DE. and externships during the summers at Lutheran Hospital, Baltimore, and Jewish Hospital, Philadelphia. Further events in Philadelphia led to a meeting at the altar in June, 1952. and the former Doris Rosenblatt became Mrs. Frieman. Looking into the future, Syl plans to go into general surgery. 80 FREDERICK ADAMS GARLOCK ' Fred has been a Mar lander since 1926. claiming Beth- esda for his home town.

He aspires to a Navy internship ami possibly a career in the Navy as a specialist. Fred manifests diversified interests: hunting, boating, golf, [iliolngraphy. and. of course, his family. His remarkable talent for establishing good rap])ort with instructors is an attribute at which classmates marvel. JOSEPH SHERMER GARRISON, 3D " Sherm " officially arrived on the Baltimore medical scene in 1926. His early years were taken uj) with the carefree joys of childhood and there was little to suggest that a rival of Osier was to emerge. During his years at Western Maryland College he showed a bend for Biology, and from there it was but one step to medical school. Here he showed himself to be an active participant in discussions and a collector of rare therapeutic lid-bits. In 1952 he married Anna Melissa. Shcrm ' s home on the Severn has been the scene of several class parties. His plans oscillate between general practice and surgery. GEORGE GEVAS Cfcorge first greeted an unsusijecting world in Yorkville, Ohio, in 1924. Believing in the motto " Be prepared " he spent three years with the armed forces as a surgical tech- nician in addition to his pre-medical work at the Univer- sity of Maryland. An earnest and conscientious student he earned the title " spastic spartan " from his equally spastic classmates. He married in August. 1951. and his wife, Mary, has since presented him with a member of the class of ' 75. Planning to intern in Baltimore he will later enter general practice and hopes finally to specialize in OB-Gvn. 81 Rip:ht: I see it, but I don ' t believe it.

Sports and music occupied his young life while he waited for his synapses to finish forming. He served in the Army from 1943-4.5 as a member of a Special Services unit (one wonders just what these special serv- ices were). After pre-med at the I niversity of Maryland he began his career at medical school; his escapades here do not require print to be remembered. Undecided about evervthing except Mar land ' s football team, and his wife, he leans toward internal medicine as a future vehicle for his talents. LEONARD BARRY CLICK Born in 1929. young Click is most famous because he is " Shipley ' s son. " However, he is best remembered by the class for his spontaneous dissertation on " Phlebo- thrombophlebitis. " Len has preserved his single status with aplonds amid myriads of adoring females. He aspires to a specialty, surgical or otherwise, hoping to intern in New Orleans where he spent his last sunnner in dispensar) work and frequent excursions down Bourlion Street. Cul- tural pursuits are music and reading. A Phi DE and a No. 1 draft choice he plans to set up in a small, warm, dry southern city with wide and well-marked streets. 8-2 JOHN McMASTEK HARTMAN Instructors gazing at this tall, thin, innocent looking specimen from West Virginia never guessed what kind of cerebral cortex |)ro|jelletl it. An uidiinited sense of humor, a genius for telling tall tales, and fabulous facial dex- terity combined to make Jack the perfect substitute for phenobarb and dexedrine. Coming to us from West Vir- ginia I .. he showed himself to be a student who could learn and perform well without taking life too seriously. He became a wheel in Phi Beta Pi and during his senior year externed at Bon Secours. He expects to enter gen- eral practice although medicine and pediatrics are still possibilities.

In full control of the jeep and the situation will be Kenny. He began his winding road in 1918 in Willianisport, Md. He received his B.S. from Salem College in West Vir- ginia. He served six years in the Army and married an understanding nurse, Thelma Nutter; now Kenny, Jr. is a pleasant reality. A sincere and hard-working student, Kenny finds time for collecting coins, listening to good music, and enjoying his family. He plans to go into general practice. THOMAS FRANKLYN HERBERT Tim is proud of, and will soon be the pride of the thriving metropolis of Ellicott City, Md. Our hard-work- ing editor-in-chief has learned much practical medicine from behind the counter of the local drug store. Tim arrived on the Ellicott City scene in 1928 and has been on the go ever since, finishing his pre-med at Johns Hop- kins. He has achieved the miracle of keeping class fin- ances solvent, serving as treasurer for four years. In addition for having a practical eye for beautiful girls, he enjoys singing. This tall, friendly boy plans to take a rotating internship and go into general practice. The next wise guy K who puts this on the r ' lf pavement.

The summer vacations he spends leisurely working on the beach as a lifeguard at home. During his senior year he externed at Bon Secours Hospi- tal. A Phi Beta Pi member, he has been instrumental in furthering the sports program of the class by organizing basketball and baseball games. One of the few bachelors still left in the class he plans to intern in the Navy and go into general practice or specialize later. 88 " WERNER ERICK KAESE " Kaese " — jjionomiceil Casey — from West Lawn.

Model trains, a well-equipped dark-room, and a love for animals persisting to the recent c(jlony of ham- sters, occupied early years. Two years as a pharmacist ' s mate in the Navv convinced Roh that his future was in medicine. Pre-medical work at College Park led to a B.S. degree and highest honors. He married Polly Thomas in 1948. Summers were spent trucking freight for B O. microbe-hunting for Mrs. Filbert, and interning in the Navy. Bob looks forward to a navy internship to better prepare him for general practice. 89 Left: I ' m glad it was your patient. Riiiht: The result of two Knights. WILLIAM SITES KISER Bill is perhaps the most eligible of our few remaining bachelors. His leaning toward pediatrics dates back to 192 " ) when he first began breaking down lactose in Roni- ney, W. V. Bill shook the coal dust and migrated to College Park for his pre-medical work; he spent his sum- mers touring the country and working as a YMCA camp doctor. Aside from his widespread popularity in class and in scores of nurse ' s homes Bill has also built up an enviable scholastic record. He is president of AOA but has also found time to do a conscientious job for four years on the Student Council and as an active member of Nu Sis. ARTHUR CLYDE KNIGHT Since 1925. the question in Philipsburg. Montana, has been, " Which came first, Art or the guitar? " After three years in the infantry in Germany and France he found that the piano was just as fascinating to him as the guitar. With these attributes it is not hard to understand why Art was a welcomed figured around Phi Beta Pi. As a student Art has never ceased in his efforts to add new medical pearls to his little black book. On off hours he was always ready for baseball, basketball, or ping-pong. A father, Art plans to return to Montana but his friends hope that fishing on the Chesapeake will hold him in the East. 90 ROBERT YOUNG LAMBERT Bol) coinej; from the land of llic " ■Maj;ii(ilia and is a strict adherent to the Dixie tradition, especially as re- lates to belles and mint juleps. After a stretch with I ncle Sam and four )ears at Emory L niversity he came to make his mark in medicine as well as to leave his footprints in the nurses " home. Bob is a quiet, unassuming fellow who will no doubt do well in OB-G ii which he chooses to pursue. If not found at the Nu Sig house then he and John Metcalf are at Chick ' s having a few. It is fellows like Hob that make school a pleasant meinor). IIARMISON MORTON LANGRALL, JR.. " Bu .z . a man of man talents, wa? chosen class presi- dent in the sophomore year and has held the job ever since. In spite of the time devoted to the class, student council, the yearbook, selling instruments, and truck- driving the quality of his dasswork is such that he was selected for AOA. Born in Baltimore in 1922 he served as an oHicer in the Arm medics anil finished his pre-med at Johns Hopkins. Buzz surr endered to Mary Jane ' s southern charm in l ' J4-l. and they soon became the proud parents of a daughter. Buzz states that his future lies somewhere between surgery and general practice.

After three years in the Air Force Ben returned to Johns Hopkins to receive his A.B. in 1949 and then moved downtown to Lombard and Greene. Ben ' s mood is chiefly one of bal- anced optimism enabling him to ward off most of the trau- matic blows of the past four vears. He is also a staunch family man. Hobbies are photography and model plane building while summers were spent in taking care of his parents " business. Ben ' s plans are not completely formu- lated yet but after internship general practice looks very interesting to him. HERBERT HOUCK LEIGHTON Coming from the hill countrv around Oakland. Md.. Herb completed pre-medical work at Western Maryland College. His desire to help his fellow man led him to medicine and thence to Baltimore. As a member of Nu Sig and a lover of choir music and photography. Herb ' s life in Baltimore was quite full, indeed. However, come sunnner and the call of the hills. Herb is found tramping the mountains of West Virginia as a general practitioner ' s assistant.

Phi Kappa Phi, and the YMHA where he jjractices weight-liftinf. ' and ballroom dancing. His sunnners were spent at Head ' s Drug Stores, (iood Hunuir Co., and Bethlehem Steel; the senior year found Bob decided on a career in otolarv ngology. Endeared by his congeniality to all those who know him, he has left his mark in the hearts of his classmates. The youngest man in the class, Bob will take a rotating internship. RAFAEL LONGO-CORDERO Ralph, as he is called b those who know him. hails from Puerto Rico and has the accent to prove it. His training at the University of P.R. obviously equipped him well for medical school for he established himself at the outset as a capable student. His Latin air and Spanish accent sold many a Good Humor for him during the summer of 19.52. kept his classmates laughing, the professors confused, and the student nurses swooning. Ralph, a member of AOA, picked up his bent for surgery as an extern at City Hospitals in OB and later in anes- thesia. He hopes eventually to do neuro-surgery. 93 GORDON EVANS MADGE This soft-spoken scholar manages to combine a warm interest in medical history and esoteric syndromes witli an appreciation of the human side of medicine. Although a native Marvlander. Gordon ' s service with the Air Corps in the South and his undergraduate training at William and Mary have oriented him in a southward direction. Symphonic music, literature, and philosophy help to fill out his spare time. To obtain relief from such cerebral pastimes Gordon has spent his summers in the quaint old-world atmosphere of the Maryland drydocks. Destiny and personal predilection impel Gordon on to the field of pathology. JESSE WILLIAM McCRACKEN Some 28 years ago this casual North Carolinian made his first contact with the OB and pediatric specialties. After 36 months in the Armv. 4 vears at Guilford College, and 2 years at North Carolina University Medical School, Bill came north to usurp the position of tallest man in the class. He has externed at hospitals in Baltimore. Virginia, and North Carolina during the sunnners and also during the school year. His limited leisure hours ha e been spent in oil painting, sculpturing, and furniture making. A bit of a philosopher he is also a bachelor. Bill ' s ambition is general surgery after interning back in Carolina. ARCHIBALD WEEMS McFADDEN This " silent " ' member of the class was born in San Diego. Cal.. in 192.T to the wail of bagpipes. He was im- mediatel) clad in a Caledonian tartan diaper and Stewart Royal bow-tie. The son of a naval officer his early years were s|)ent travelling between China and the Phili|)pines.

After entering and leaving the portals of such institutions of higher learning as Western Mary- land. Johns Hopkins, and Maryland, he received a B.S. in Pharmacy. In order to avoid the traumatic experience of working, he decided to attempt four years of medical education. While engaged in the latter and maintaining a high scholastic average he became a member of Phi Delta Epsilon and AOA. and spent the summer of 1952 being chased around Peninsula General Hospital in Salis- Iniry. His plans for the future are a naval internship and an undecided specialty. 95 Upper lejt: Look at the camera. John. Upper middle: Now look, you guys.

Baltimore was blessed with a devoted son, for Norm spent his undergraduate and graduate years in familiar surroundings at the University of Mary- land. Command performances to demonstrate his winged scapula have been Norm ' s greatest obstacle to completing his senior year. Extracurricular activities include mem- bership in Phi DE, a summer externship at South Bal- timore General, and a summer fellowship in hematology at University. He and Kay were married in June, 1952, and if the temptation of a lucrative career as a golfing doctor or consultant in slam bidding don ' t overpower him.

In 1944 Dick began his study of the classics at St. Johns College in Annapolis but the Arniv intervened. Dick transferred to Johns Hopkins after discharge and graduated in 1949 with a record of scholastic ability as well as prowess on the soccer field. While at medical school Dick has been an astute and hard-working student. In June, 1952, Dick took the big step and married Cookie, a Virginia belle. During that summer he worked for the USPHS. After internship Dick intends to do general practice in a rural community. CORBETT LATIMER QUINN Corbett is one of our North Carolinians. This genial down-to-earth citizen of Potter ' s Hill is one of the least spastic or excitable members of the class. After leaving Nippon where he was with the army of occupation Corbett spent some time at the University of North Carolina: 4 years undergraduate and 2 vears medical school. Trans- ferring north, he quickly acclimated his 6 foot 4 inch, 220 pound frame to the scholastic and extracurricular status quo. Corbett s strongly practical nature marks his ward work and study.

Vacation times have been utilized in slowly recovering from the ravages of school, with proper attention paid to his wife, daughter, golfing, and wild-life of Georgia. The support of Nu Sig and the interior decorating of this yearbook have been tasks at which he has faithfully labored. A naval intern- ship with those glittering silver bars interests Joe strongly. 101 LEWIS CASS RICHMOND Lew conies from Milton. W.Va. Born in 1927. his schooling has taken place at Marshall College and Duke University. Experience as a laboratory technician was obtained during eighteen months in the Army. Lewis is the class pilot being the proud possessor of a four-place Stinson Flying Station Wagon in which he soars around during off hours. The summer before graduation he worked as an extern in OB at Woman ' s Hospital. After graduation Lew plans to take a rotating internship and return home with his wife and infant son to set up a clinic with his father, a general practitioner. JAMES EARLE ROWE. JR. This scion of the ancient house of Rowe began his sojourn in Baltimore in 1928. Forsaking the paternal dental profession. Jim ran through the obstacle course at College Park successfully, and returned home, a trium- phant matriculant at Lombard and Greene Streets. Here his quiet and modest attitude failed to hide an alert and keen mind in things medical. Vacations were spent variously as house painter, warehouse laborer, and scrub nurse. In May, 1952, promptly after the last test of the exam-replete junior year Jim married Betty Matthews. After internship, internal medicine and pediatrics both loom invitinuh in tlie foreground. RICHARD ELIAS SCHINDLER Dick was born in 1927 in the mountain fastness of Cumberland, Md. As a medical corpsmen in the Navy he acquired the ambition to become a physician and came to medical school via College Park. Occasional outbursts of song and rhythmic gyrations betray his past as a dance band drummer. Other interests include oil painting, boating, and collecting rare records. Phi DE claims an- other segment of his time. Dick left a huge gap in the bachelor ranks of the class when he and Miriam were married in summer of 19.52. A rotating internship will help him to decide on choice of further training. 102 UpixT Icjl: Sine. 1 stiidv. Upper Middle: II mhi IkuI a iii-i;ali i ' | at(li test ( u be wearing one, ton.

So, enriched with his vast medical experi- ence and subtle, salty humor, he came to us. While in school he enlisted in Nu Sig and also joined AOA. Bill and Annette were married in March. 19.53. During the summers the sea beckoned and he hired out as a stevedore. From the start Bill has lo ed the blade and maintained an ambition to beconu- a neurosurgeon.

EDWARD VERHINES SPUDIS Among noteworthy events during the Calvin Coolidge administration was the arrival of Ed in 192.5 in our nation ' s capital. After speedily acquiring the urbane and nonchalantly elegant attitude one gains from association with the international set Ed spent 21 years in the Army and then made the educational rounds of George- town. George Washington. S.M.U.. and College Park before entering medical school. Consistently hard-work- ing and intellectually honest in his scholastic work Ed has been our class vice-president for all four ears and also served as president of Nu Sig during his junior year. He is currently intrigued with internal medicine. WILLIAM PENDLETON TEMPLETON Born in 1924. Bill grew up in Baltimore and except for four years with the Air Force when he flew B-25 ' s in the Pacific theater, has been in Maryland ever since. He married Bett Jean one month after discharge and took his pre-med at College Park. For the past year he has worked in the accident room at Mercy Hospital and has spent his summers with a research team on catalysts at a local chemical corporation. Bill will be remembered for his leading questions during lectures, for example, " Now, Doctor, just exactly what is the mechanism in- volved? " He plans on general practice after internship. 106 MARTIN WILLIAM TKEIHEK riiis MK ' dical aspirant arrived in Balliiiiiuc in l ' J2!! with a lull nj)])l of energy and excuses.

Since then he has had his mind set on becoming an M.D. and after a long and trying period via Dickinson College he joined the class of ' 53 at Maryland. His summers spent as a full-time farmer, his early association with Dr. Lisansky in medical school as a baby sitter deluxe, and his marriage to Virginia Lauterback in 1952 are but a few of his achievements. He is also the foremost authorit on mechanics in the senior class and is looking forward to a general practice in some small eastern town. ARNOLD LP:0NARD VANCE Born in the mid-twenties, Arn was satisfied to remain in Baltimore but Uncle Sam sent him on an extended tour for 21 2 years. Back at College Park he met in the person of ex-Lieut. Templeton someone to discuss music, phil- osophy and sports with him. To really learn about Baltimore Arn drove a taxi two summers in his spare time when he wasn ' t on the golf course. Readily identi- fied in any gathering by his unique laugh, he is one of the top men as regards pin-ball technique. This member of Phi Beta Pi with all his accomplishments will surely fulfill his ambition to become an internist. Petting! Quarter after eleven. 108 Upper left — On the lioardwalk (At Atlantic City?)

On this trip he met his wife-to-be. Nancy: they were married in Shanghai, China, and their honeymoon was spent in a most unique manner: traveling across the Pacific — on two different ships. After leaving the Navy, he sojourned briefly at College Park, then joined the class of ' .53. He and Nancy are the proud parents of a daughter, Susan. Jack ' s future plans are indefinite but he leans toward the Air Corps. 109 KARL HANNA WEAVER Karl was born in Oklahoma in 1927 but moved to Clarksburg. W.Va., at an early age. The path which led him to medicine has been a devious one, including a year at Mercersburg Academy, a year visiting Europe with the Army, and a premedical course at W.Va. U. In school he has been active in Phi Beta Pi. His summer vacations have been spent acting the part of a country gentleman and a jolly good loafer. In August, 1952. however, love entered permanently into his life when he married Nancv Corbin. He expects to be a general practitioner in a small town. JOEL STOOPS WEBSTER Federalsburg. Md.. claims Joe as a hometown boy. He came to medical school from College Park where he earned his B.S. degree. Prior to his higher education he spent two years with the USAAF and he states he doesn ' t wish to return. His summers have been spent doing odd jobs and working for the U.S. Public Health Service. In 1932 he married Bettie Lou and decided to spend his senior year " really trying to become a doctor. " After graduation Joe is looking for a general practice internship and residency. He says he doesn ' t know e actl where he ' ll practice but he ' s sure it ' ll be on the Eastern Shore. HARRY STEPHEN WEEKS. JR. Harry is a family man, hails from Clarksburg.

Nevertheless the students still find some time for such thinjis as fraternity associations. The most-looked-forward-to events of the school year are the dances which are given at three times during the year. Here fun is had by all and much anxiety is lost. The fraternities serve a dual function: that of a social nature and that of holding scientific discussions.

Root founded Alpha Omega Al|)ha. an honorary medical fraternity, membership in which would identify those whose attributes and activities served to raise scholastic and scientific level of medical practice and education. The society thus established has grown throughout fifty-one years into an international organization which includes undergraduate students showing outstanding scholarship as regards aptitude, intellectual grasp, moral integrity, and most important the promise of subsequent leadership and accomplishment, as well as those graduate physicians whose careers demonstrate possession of such attributes. Election to AOA as such serves as both goal and stimulus for student body and faculty alike, not only to the attainment of a well rounded and intelligent medical education but also to the concurrent superimposition of integrity and creativeness. In December, 1949, AOA was installed at the University of Maryland when Dr. Walter Bierring. national president, conferred rights for establish- ment of the Beta Chapter of Maryland. The charter roup, which was com- prised of 14 faculty members, 5 graduates and 12 members of the senior class of that year, initiated activities which have been maintained and augmented annually as the chapter strives to further its purpose in the University. The pre sent chapter decided that first hand reports on their work by some of the most distinguished scientific investigators in our nation would serve well as a means of arousing the curiosity on students which leads to produc- 114 Dr. J. Edniuiicl Bradley. Dr. Milton S. Sacks. live research, one of AOA ' s most important goals. In view of this. Dr. Maxwell Wintrobe. delivered the annual fall lecture when he spoke on " Experimental Studies in Macrocytic Anemia: Their Sifrnificance in I{i- lation to Pernicious Anemia " to a Gordon Wilson hall packed to capacity. The spring lecture was presented by Dr. Dayid P. Barr. Professor of Medicine at Cornell University, who spoke on " (Chemical Kactors in the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis " . The members looked forward eagerK to the thir l animal Student Paper Da . an afternoon program dedicated to the discussion by students of investigative projects in which they are taking |)art. The chapter has been efifectively guided this year by Dr. Milton S. Sacks and Dr. J. Edmund Bradley who serve as Faculty ( ' ounselor and Faculty Secretary respectively. Their leadership has been ])aramount in one of our chapter ' s finest years to date. The graduating class iticludes 16 members of Alpha Omega Alpha: and each one realizes fully that b living it. he is best serving to further the motto of AOA: " To be worthy to serve the suffering " . 115 it VJ i o ' ; ' i Q Gi a | c : a Ci t4 - CQ aa a aa 116 Nil Sigma Nu Nu Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded at the I ' liiversity of Michigan. School of Medicine, in l!!o2 by a group under the leadership of William Mayo, and is among the oldest of medical frater- nities. On the alumni rolls of the 43 active chapters are over 2.5.()(H) alunuii including such names as Sir William Osier and ( ' harles H. Best, co-discoverer of insulin. Active in the Maryland campus for 49 years. Beta Alpha Chapter includes this year more than 7.5 members and pledges. 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 chapter maintains a house at 922 St. Paul Street for the |)urposc of meetings, lectures, social functions and the housing of 20 mendiers. There are man) planned |)arties and social func- tions throughout the year. The educational program consisted of speakers from till- ariiiu dcparlmciits at the Medical School and incluilcil such men as Dr. H. M. Rob- inson Jr.. Dr. II. J. L. Marriott and Dr. Milton Sacks.

Phi Beta Pi Since its reemergence in 1947 after the war period in which it had passed into a temporary limbo, Phi Beta Pi here at Maryland has come a long way. Its prominent location at S19 West Lombard Street, just across the street from the school, makes the large rooms maintained there easily accessible for between class and lunch hour relaxation, a privilege taken by many of the members. As usual, this year smokers, guest speakers, dinners before monthly meetings, and student seminars have dominated the schedule. In addition, further activities such as a Christmas party, a proposed Alumni banquet, and several other parties plus our annual shore party, always highly successful, have come up as the year passed by. On the academic side. Phi Beta Pi has always encouraged diligent work (111 the part of its members. The brothers are always willing to lend a helping hand in study jiroblems. and a large examination file is maintained as a review aid to the members. Many faculty members have been initiated into ihe honorar roil of Phi Beta Pi. The Departments of Anatomy, Bacteriology, Pharmacology and Physiology, to name a few, are well represented. Further- more a large number of Phi Beta alumni scattered over the city are more and more becoming an integral part of the fraternity which is pleased to have them visit the rooms at any time and speak at the smokers and social functions. This year Phi Beta Pi has pledged fourteen men and in addition there are thirty-six actives from last year. Much of the progress of Phi Beta Pi has been notably aided and abetted by Dr. Eduard L hlenhuth who has served as Facultv Advisor. He has always been willing to help and give many valuable suggestions to the operation of the Chapter. Upper right — Karl Weaver, Walt Byerly, Walt Judge, Tom Burkart, Art Knight.

Founded in 1904 at Cornell I niversity by a group of eight young men who felt the need for a fraternity such as this. Phi Delta Epsilon has grown to be a national organization with a chapter in every major medical school and with active graduate clubs in every part of the con- tinent. Through the years the fraternity has been proud of its striving for and attainment of its high standards of ethics, scientific achieve- ments, and educational progress. It has been a center for good fellowship on both a local and national level, and is responsible for many last- ing friendships.

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF NURSING 131 We The Class of September 1953, Dedicate Our Yearbook With Untold Gratitude To Our Parents History of School and Cap Miss Louisa Parsons came to the L iiiversit) to begin lier work as founder of the University of Maryland School of Nursing on December 15. 1889. Miss Parsons was an Knglish woman and has received her nursing education under Florence Nightingale at St. Thomas Hospital in London. She gradu- ated in 1880. When Miss Parsons was preparing to come to the I nited States. Miss Nightingale gave the pattern of a cap made of point d " espril lace which she requested be given the nurses of the first school founded by Miss Parsons. Thus our school was privileged to inherit the coveted Florence Nightingale Cap now worn by its graduates. In 1894 the Alumnae Association of the school was organized. Six years after this, in 1900, Miss Catherine Tayhjr was made Director of Nurses and in this same year the first three year students were graduated. Prior to this the required training period was two years. By 1920 the professional schools in Baltimore had been amalgamated with the University of Maryland at College Park. To meet the demand for more advanced education in the nursing profession, a five-year program was in- stituted in 1924. Those graduating under this |)rogram receive a Bachelor of Science degree. In 1934 the new University Hospital was opened and the students lia i a larger, more modern " classroom " for their clinical experience. The capping ceremony, at which students who have successfully com- pleted their six months preclinical period receive their cap. was first per- formed in 1943. Miss Florence Gipe became Director of Nurses in 1946. Since that time our educational program has been augmented so that our .school is now acclaimed as t ne of the nalion s finest. 133 m ,f Florence M. Gipe, R.N. Ed.D., Dean Miss Gipe is an earnest advocate of advanced education for nurses and has worked tirelessly to improve our school ' s educational standards. Under her direction. Public Health affiliations have been made available to all students. The introduction of a four year course is one of Miss Gipe ' s most timely and valuable contri- butions to the school ' s program. Her personal achievements in the acquisition of knowledge are a convincing example of its advantages. Since her graduation from the York Hospital School of Nursing, Miss Gipe has re- ceived both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science degree. Last year she acquired the degree of Doctor of Education from the Uni- versity of Maryland. By combining administrative ability with consideration of each student ' s potentialities, Miss Gipe has extended the scope of opportunities provided for the development of individual goals and abilities. 134 What makes little girls become nurses? Seldom do we stop in the rushed fulfillment of our own duties, to consider what a tremendous task is that of the administrators of the I ' niver- sity Hospital and its connected institutions that include the Out Patient Department and the new Psychiatric Institute. When we recall the variety of requirements in the many departments in which we have worked, we must admire the administrative staff who is always aware of the functions and needs of the entire hospital. The administration works to make the patient comfortable as we do, by providing for pleasant physical surroundings and equipment of all kinds for patient care which we often take for granted because it is so readily available. Not only must they provide for the needs of the patients who fill the wards, rooms and clinics but also for the many members of the hospital stafT. By keeping abreast of modern hospital methods, those of the administrative stafT have provided for us an excellent clinical worksho)) in which to acquire our nursing education. The planning and foresight evidenced by the expan- sion an l improvement of hospital facilities make us confident thai as graduates we can speak with pride of our " home " hospital.

Our courses in medical and surgical nursing are carefully planned to give us an understanding of the manifestations and treatment of diseases. Many hours are spent with informal lectures, class discussions, reference reading, demon- strations and clinical observations; where we acquire the knowl- edge of nursing skills needed to care for our patients. Through the active participation in the hospital toward care and treatment of the patients, these skills and knowledge progress. We learn to think and act quickly, effectively and efficiently in order to place the health and well-being of our patients as our first and main duty.

Class Of September 1955 It isn ' t hard to remember that great day when we " lower classmen " received word that we had been accepted as a member of the University. First came the introduction to what seemed to us complicated routines. These were soon mastered and we began formal classroom study. To as- semble our new uniforms was quite a task and our first hours of clinical practice were awkward, but at the same time fascinating.

In caring for these patients one must observe them keenly and constantly. We must teach our patients how to care for themselves after operations and in some cases how to live with their disease. It is in this area that we develop skills and techniques which we use throughout our nursing careers.

Medical Nursing %£ 7 In medical nursing the nurse must have an adequate knowledge of the vast diseases and numerous situations in order to give the patients proper nursing care. The various methods of treatment are employed in the field of medicine, but the nurse must be able to arrange these treatments in such a manner that they meet the individual needs of the patient. In this field of nursing you meet various types of people and though the clinical signs and symptoms of one patient are similiar to those of another patient with the same disease: their problems and nursing care must be planned according to the individual. From the day the patient is admitted until the day he is discharged, the nurse is constantly teaching, not only the patient, but his family in order that they might have a better understand- ing of the disease and the required care.

In Obstetrics clinic she is encouraged to teach the patients and assist with physical examinations. As a part of her Pediatric training, the nurse has a chance to see the babies as they return to the Well Baby Clinic for their check-ups. Along with medical and surgical nursing, she is permitted to assist with treatments and minor operations. In no other phase can so much be accom|)lishe(l in so litlle lime.

During a student nurse ' s three year period, one month is spent in diet school where with the assistance of the dietitian she learns the purposes of special diets as the treatment for specific dis- eases. She works with the dietitians and other students to pre|)are these diets to meet the patient ' s likes and diseases. Also, she is able to give the patients and their families proper diet instructions. She is taught to weigh and calcu- late special diets such as low carbohydrate for diabetic patients, low fat for infectious hepatitis or low salt for cardiac diseases.

This training also enables her to act promptl) and efliciently to combat disasters outside of the hospital. She learns to share the disappoint- ments and fears that accompany her patient ' s and their family ' s, as she provides the immediate, essential nursing care. Mystery, disaster and drama fill the accident room with such exciting experiences that they can scarcely be equaled in any other phase of nursins;.

In Public Health Nursing, the imrse must have a wider and more general range of knowledge and understanding. She must include each family member with each patient in her teachings and observations. Along with the nursing jjrob- lenis of the patients goes their social and econo- mic difficulties as well. Integrity, caution and the ability to improvise are extremelv important and the nurse is taught to use these principles to the best of her ability in order to aid and protect her patients and their families. Though mostly on her own. she can always depend on the City Health Department for assistance with lier many complicated problems. U.) Obstetrical Nursing A spank on the soles of his feet stimulates the new citizen to voice protest and take his first breath. So begins a chain reaction; the beam- ing face of the exhausted mother; the relieved smile of the anxious father; the welcome words " It ' s a boy. " These are but a few of the many experiences one is able to share in obstetrical nursing. In the Out-Patient Department as we help a mother plan for the coming baby, we are both teaching and learning. In the delivery room, as we see our care and reassurance allay a patients fears, we are proud. Then, after the long awaited moment is over, two lives instead of one. prosper by the instructions and guidance that is given. In these ways we. as nurses, can help change the fears and anxiety of a new mother into hope and happiness. In the nursery those " blessed events " are greeted with various expressions of joy and re- ceive plenty of tender, loving care as they are bathed, dressed, fed or cuddled. Three months is so little time in which to crowd the manv hours of class and experience. However, time goes on and with it goes our meniorv of the excitement of a delivery: the tears of a disappointed mother, and the thrill of being in on the beginning of a new life, which make obstetrics one of the most fascinating of all fields of nursins.

Operating Room The operating room holds many new experi- ences for a bewildered student. However, there she is taught to act quickly and efficientlv in order to anticipate any emergency. Slowly, with the faithful teachings of our instructors, she learns the names and uses of the mountains of gleaming instruments. The fear that accompanies her first few scrubs soon gives away to a certain thrill as she passes the sutures, scapel or scissors into the steady hands of a physician who guides a patient ' s illness into a ray of hope and captures the feel- ing of mvsterious excitement and drama. US The balance of man ' s life is oft times held within the skilled hands of the surgeon and the assistance of the scrub nurse. 149 Psychiatry at Springfield Three months in the country with delicious food, green grass, glorious fresh air and week ends off describes the affiliation at Springfield Psychiatric Hospital. However, there you are confronted with mental turmoil and emotional distresses of those people, behind closed windows and locked doors, that could easily be your friends or members of your family. You pre- pare to meet the patient ' s needs and assist in their well being and recovery. With kindness, attention, proper approach and treatment you help them recapture their emotional stability so that they again are socially secure. In the evenings, you study hard to learn the mental mechanisms and neuroanatomy, but in only three months so little can be learned and accomplished in this fast growing field of vague knowledge. Ri hl: Jones Building at Springfield Hospital. Lower right: Hubner Administration Building at Springfield. Below: Psychiatric Institute of University of Maryland. To the numerous buildings that compose the University Hospital and its schools of learning, a new and modern Psychiatric building has been added. It is to accommodate the emotionally and mentally confused, including senile patients, especially those needing medical or surgical attention, by providing the newest methods of treatment and professional personnel. Also, small portions of the new building will be utilized to enlarge the general hospital. It is hoped that this new hospital will help to relieve the crowded conditions of other psychiatric institutions and general hospitals. Though it is not adequately furnished for use at present, plans are being made for its use in the immediate future. It is also planned that in the near future, students from the School of Nursing will receive their psychiatric instructions and experience there.

For three months she learns and practices the care that can so easily determine a childs life, death, or behavior. Though her associations are mainly with sick children, she learns to compare their symptoms with those of a well child and adjusts her approach and care according to the indi- vidual. Also, she learns to mold her own pattern of li ving to meet the childrens needs and desires. The nurse can acquire a degree of understanding of the growth and development of the normal child and can observe, particularly in Pla Therapy, his attitude toward group participation and living. The accumulated knowledge and vast experiences obtained in Pediatrics can be applied and utilized very practically in every day living and associations with children and the family group. University and affiliating students attend a class in Pediatrics. 1.5 2 Specialties included in a student ' s Pediatric training are the Formula Room, Out-Patient Department, and Premature Nursery. These specialties aid a student in other fields of nursing as well as Pediatrics. The Formula Room, for example, enables her to teach new uncertain mothers in Public Health, the proper method of preparing babvs formula. From the Oul- Patient Department, she learns how to approach and reassure a sick child ' s f amily. Also, she is able to follow a patient through the Well Maby ( Jinic.

ANNA MAE BEDDOWS Baltimore, Maryland " Pinkie " came to us in 1952 from St. Lukes Hospital, Beth- lehem. Pennsvhania. Cheerful and pleasant, this redhead has quickly won many friends. She enjoys active recreation such as bowling, ice skating, tennis, and swimming, but while re- laxing in her room she likes to read and listen to nmsic. She enjoyed her Public Health experience very much and felt it offered more opportunity and challenge than hospital work. In her short time here " Pinkie " has proven a capable and de- pendable nurse. Future plans for Pinkie include a home for her husband and small daughter, along with working towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing Education. NELLIE MAE BLOXOM Norfolk, Virginia ' ' Miss Mae " is the efficient southern belle, who is constantly Washington bound to share precious off duty moments with her " Snuffy. " Her reassuring manner and dry wit have made manv lasting friendships. Nellie has participated in many activities. Being vice-president of the Student Government, co-editor of our yearbook and a member of the Student Government Social Committee has kept her busy. Her favorite past times are dancing, dining and tennis. Nellie also spends some of her intermittent time at Cape Charles, Virginia, visiting her Aunt " Yiyi. " Obstetrics rates high in her professional plans. Her future plans are summarized in one word. " Snuffy.

In our first year she was class representative to the Student (iouncil and as a senior became the president of Student Government Association. She was also recording secretary for the Student Nurse ' s ( ' ouncil of Maryland and the l ' niversit " s representative to the Biennial Nurse ' s Convention in Atlantic City. Her pleasing personality and sympathetic understanding have been a alualile asset in her chosen career and the future will see Peg " toting " her little black bag on Public Health visits. Peg will receive her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing upon graduation. ELSIE ARDETH DIEDERICHS Annapolis, Maryland Because she is so absorbed in her work, many believe " Ardie " to be the quiet kind, but we know that she has a ga side that loves to tease. An thing she undertakes is thoroughK done as evidenced by her scholastic average. " Ardie " enjoys any type of active sport, but swimming is her favorite. A medical student from Ohio endowed her with that tongue-twisting last name when " Ardie " married Hank in May of 1%2. The operat- ing room was " Ardie ' s " favorite spot during her days at University Hospital. She hopes eventualh to be employed as office nurse and homemaker for Dr. Heiir Diederichs in Ohio. 157 JANET GLYNDINE DOUGLAS Baltimore, Maryland So eager was Doug to join her parents in the hills of West Virginia, that she arrived ahead of schedule. Her feet have not forgotten her small beginning for they remained a size four while the rest of her grew to a willowy height. Since she is such a light sleeper, the backward schedule of night dutv then sleeping during the day has developed in her an intense dislike for noisemakers. Janet ' s not hallucinating when she sings " I Thought I Saw A Puddy Tat " — she likes the song and the " tweedie bird " who sings it. She enjoyed Obstetrics with its optimistic atmosphere but intends to pound the pave- ments (those poor little feet, again I on Public Health after graduation. BARBARA PEARL DUNN Baltimore, Maryland " Ini an artist by chance and a nurse by choice, " says this clever little redhead: who has made a success of both choice and chance. Many of the eye-catching posters which announced our school activities were " done by Dunn. " In her spare time Barb was Student Council Representative and Basketball Cap- tain in her second year; she was class secretary in her senior year. After graduation Barb plans to specialize in Obstetrics. Her favorites were night duty and " the Pit " where the unex- pected reigns King. Her plans for the future include marriage in September. 158 JEAN FRANCES ELMORE Petersburg, Virginia A gay, chariiiiiii; l)cll(-. this ■ " Klfiio. " is softspokeii. but never at a loss for words in her many lengthy conversations. Anionj; her many assets, nursing rates one of the highest and you can be sure that in work, she considers her patient foremost. Good movies and popular music take a hack seat when Jean is dancing. She just loves it. and there ' s real talent in those twinkle-toes. Jean is always ready to do an impromptu Charleston. After graduati in and an extended a(atinii in Florida, Jean will he taking a joli with the Veteran s Adiiiiiii - tration. Strangely enough she jjrefers working night dut on a surgical ward. MARY ELIZABETH ELWELL Baltimore, Maryland Betty is a fair haired, blue eved. g 1 natured gal who enjoys loads of fun and excitement. Dancing, horsi ' -back riding, ice skating, good music, and reading, rank among her favorite after hour interests. During basketball season she gives vent to her athletic ability by pla ing an elfective game at forward position. In the summer you can find Bettv at her favorite bathing beach or on the roof of the Nurses ' Home soaking up " (Jle Sol. " Betty ' s plans for the future are to remain in Baltimore until State Boards and then destination unknown. From her past and present records we can forsee only success and happiness for her. 159 DOROTHEA AGNES FENWICK Takoma Park, Maryland Surprising stork and all. Dot breezed her way into the world on a cold Annapolis evening. When this fair haired lass re- turned from psychiatric affiliation she was wearing Pete ' s fraternity pin. We believe wedding bells will ring for her after graduation. She is well liked by her patients and co- workers for her good nursing care and congeniality. During her student days. Dot was on the decorating and publicity committees for many of our social functions. She has enjoyed working in all specialties and will obtain her Bachelor of Science degree. Whatever Dot undertakes will be done ex- ceptionally well. MORA IRENE FRERIE Silver Spring, Maryland " Let me tell you what happened to me! " expresses " Miff " as she searches the halls at three o ' clock in the morning looking for someone to talk with about her troubles and triumphants. " Miff " came to us after three years at College Park and has been admired by her patients and co-workers as an efficient, pleasant imrse. She spent most of her time working on 9AD and developed a liking for night duty. For two years she was house committee chairman. Though " Miff ' s " plans for the future are indefinite: she may work as a graduate in the operating room, but we are sure she will find excitement in whatever she chooses. If.O .4 SALLY FRANCES FRITZ Baltimore, Maryland " Fit as a fidclle and icadv to go " is the sl(){»an of our gal " Fritty. " Her natural talent for being at ease with people has won the good will of her patients and acquaintances. Ready to accept new enterprises, she was elected Social Reprcseiitalive of the senior class. A good dish of soup and a few cliallenging rubbers of bridge rate high as her favorites. " Fritty " is always first in line for tickets when a new play or musical comes to Fords. Spending two previous years at College Park, she will receive her Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation. Travel is a part of her plans f ir the future. MARGUERITE BARBARA FROEB Baltimore, Maryland Genial Margie is known to all of us as a meticulous worker who likes things done well and completely. Her future plans lean toward the field of Psychiatric or possibly Obstetrical Nursing. Seen usually with a hook in her hand. Margie likes to spend off duty moments listening to good music and dancing. Foreign languages and nursing debates are high on her list of favorite pastimes. Among her pet peeves, two are out- standing; disorganization and changes of plans. Marguerite is well liked by both patients and professional associates for her friendly and cooperative attitude. " A friendK smile goes a long way " might easily be her motto. 161 MARY ELLEN GARRETT Gaithersburg, Maryland Mary Ellen is one of our fast moving efficient nurses. Much of her time is spent reading, dancing, knitting, or driving around Maryland ' s countryside. Of course where Mary Ellen is, there is fun and laughter. During her days as a student nurse she has been known for her competent, capable, and friendiv nature with her patients and classmates. She is a willing helper in all class functions. The senior year found Mary Ellen busy securing subscriptions for our yearbook. After graduation she plans to spend some time at College Park working on a Bachelor of Science degree. Of her clinical experience she preferred general duty nursing. AMELIA CAROL GRIMES BUCKEYSTOWN, MARYLAND Often considered quiet and bookish by those who don ' t know her, Carol is known by her friends to be neither quiet nor studious. She is well-read and can converse on a large variety of subjects. The things she cherishes most are classical music, books, her home, and " just talking. She enjoys anv sport especially tennis and horseback riding. Carol was president of the senior class plus being literarv editor of the yearbook. Last year Carol was vice-president of the class. Carol is a very versatile girl whose friends will long remember both her gaiety and her seriousness. In the future. Carol plans to lend her main talents to psychiatric nursing. 162 SHIRLEY GURALNICK Baltimore, Maryland Petite Shirley Guralnick, prunounced " growl — like a dog and nick — like St. Nick, " is one of our younger members who used her artistic talents for the advantage of our class. Besides making posters and decorations for our dances, she has been Art Editor for the nursing section of this yearbook. Bowling, swinmiing and tennis hel|) to use up her energy, but when a little less strenuous entertainment is needed, we can hear her strummin " on her " uke. " Her pet peeve is phone calls when trying to sleep. Shirley has seemed to enjoy all ])hases of imrsing and plans to do further study for a Bachelor of Science degree. CHARLOTTE ARIEL HAGER Baltimore, Maryland " I guess Ini just interested in people, " is Ariel ' s own sum- mary of her reasons for selecting nursing as a career. Certainly she has found plenty to keep her interested and busy in the last three years. Ariel enjoys filling in her leisure hours with swimming, horseback riding, and relaxing to classical music. She also possesses the valuable ability to convert a few yards of material into a lovely creation in the matter of minutes. Ariel ' s outwardly serene appearance hides many inwardly bubbling chuckles and masks a keen business mind. The most interesting phase of the nursing education was her Springfield affiliation. Her future plans therefore include a career in psychiatric nursing. 163 MARGARET HOPPER HARING Hackensack, New Jersey Marge hails from Hackensack, New Jersey and proud of it too. Besides nursing, she is very busy horseback riding, bowl- ing and knitting wild argyles. Notice those wonderful posters advertising our dances? Yes — she found time to help with those too. Marge is always ready for a party or gab session. Listening to music is one of her favorite pastimes. Marge ' s efficiency and perseverance on the wards carries through to her extra-curricular activities. She especially liked the operating room of all the services and plans to work there after gradua- tion. Securing her Bachelor of Science degree is included in her plans for the future. MAXINE CAROLYN HAYNES Grifton, North Carolina In years to come when " Mac " leafs through her memory book of training days, corsages, dance and play programs will abound. Red roses, gardenias and poetry are among the many things she likes. Always open minded, her love of music varies from Spike Jones to Beethoven. With patience and strenuous use of her supple limbs she helped many of us to learn the Charleston and other tricky dance steps. " Mac " takes a sincere interest in the problems of her friends. Her class- mates have enjoyed her laughter that easily follows a sympa- thetic tear. In the immediate future " Mac " plans to join the Air Force. 164 NANCY JO KOHLHOSS PooLESviM.E, Maryland After two years as a prc-nursiiig student at College Park, Jo came to University Hospital and plunged into a full schedule of activities. Jo ' s exuberant enjoyment of life has often left her classmates either weak from laughter or completely be- wildered. Her good looks and dynamic personality won her the candidacy for Homecoming Queen in 1952. Much of her time was spent as social chairman of Student Government Association and business manager of the yearbook. Her ex- cellent state of health is maintained bv constantly forcing fluids and vigorous exercise through daily routines. Jo expects to receive her Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation and be an airline hostess. «k) i JONES BUILDING KARI MARGARET LENNING LiNTHicuM, Maryland Kari. an original Mid-Western girl, came to Mar land several years ago but still speaks frequently of her native state; hoping to return some day. In her leisure time, Kari loves to go dancing, skating, bowling, to the movies, or just relax with a good book and soft music. Since interested in nursing at a very early age, Kari enrolled for training immediately after graduating from high school. Throughout her student years she remained an eager, efficient nurse and has made many lasting friends. Extremely interested in the operating room as a student, Kari hopes to work there permanently after graduation where we are sure she will be competent. 165 CAROLYN O ' NEIL LEWIS Baltimore, Maryland When you hear, " Do you happen to have an extra pair of red flannels in your closet? " — don ' t be alarmed. It ' s just " Looie " preparing for another hunting or fishing trip. Her enthusiasm originated down in good " ol Virginny " where she grew up and still spends much of her leisure time. Serving as House Committee Chairman of the Student Government Asso- ciation, there was still time to work many hours as a typist for the Yearbook Staff. Her talent doesn ' t end here: " Looie " is quite adept with fine needlework. Included in her busy schedule is ice skating and helping with decorations for dances. " Looie " spent three years at College Park and will receive her Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation. ESTHER ELIZABETH McCREADY Baltimore, Maryland Though small and quiet. Esther enjoys the lighter side of life and is always ready for a laugh. As time permits, she loves to roll a bowling ball or glide around on a pair of skates; however, when it comes to relaxing, she ' s satisfied with soft music or a good book. Obstetrics fascinated Esther as a student and immediately following a short while with the Navy Nurses Corps she plans to study post graduate Obstetrics and settle down as the head nurse of a delivery floor. Her merry attitude and capable nursing have won the praise and respect of all those who have been closely associated with her through- out her student days. n 1 166 MARY LENORE MUIR FLORENCE.

CAROLYN ELIZABETH MYERS Baltimore, Maryland Carolyn is a petite blond with blue eyes and a radiant per- sonality. Some of her interests are knitting, embroidering, reading, and traveling. In her work she is confident, responsi- ble and is well liked by her patients and her classmates. She was treasurer of the Student Government Association this year and is Vice-President of the Lutheran Student Association. With her many activities she found her senior year even busier with the task of being co-editor of the yearbook. Public Health is her choice for an interesting future career and we are sure she will be a success. 167 JOYCE UDELL NATHANSON Baltimore, Maryland Joyce, often called " Udie " until her marriage in November is the girl with the long, blonde tresses and laughing eyes. Her favorite expression, " Rich? That ' s a nice name! " can be heard more than once during a conversation with this friendly classmate. During her three years at University Joyce pre- ferred Obstetrics. Her amiable and pleasing personality has delighted many friends and cheered her patients. Joyce ' s hearty laugh is a contagious one and can be heard ringing through the hallway on the sixth floor of the nurses ' home. After graduation day Joyce hopes to fill her future with domesticity and Richard. DOROTHY EDITH O ' NEAL A.B. Parsons, West Virginia " Dorty " came to us from Asbury College, Kentucky with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. For three years she has been Chair- man of the Religious Committee. She was vice-president of the class in her first year, vice-president of the Student Govern- ment Association in her second year and class representative to the Student Government Association in the third year. Wherever there is a bit of noise, fun and laughter there you ' ll find " Dorty. " She has our admiration for her faith in others and in God. She is an efficient capable nurse with a special healing hand that we are sure will perform wonders in her future work as a missionary. 168 MARY ANN PANCOAST Berryville, Virginia Ouict is the word VNliicli best summarizes Mary Ann. Don ' t let that fool ()u though: her witty comments always amuse the crowd. Before comini; to the University of Maryland, Mary Ann attended Marv Washington College for two years. She took an active part in class business as secretary during her first year and as an ahle " ad-getter " for our yearbook. If there were such a thing as " stall-side " nursing she would qualify for the job because of her lo e for horses ami fxpci i- ence in training them. Mary Ann ' s future plans are undeciiled. but we wish her the best of luck. THELMA IRENE PRIGEL Long Green Valley, Maryland Extreme patience and consideration for others has led rhelma to be endeared by both classmates and patients. She conies on duty with a quiet reassuring air that assures us that nursing is what she enjoys most. Thelma has spent many hours of her leisure time helping other students with their sewing problems. Her advice is constantly sought because of her previous experience in teaching home economics. She is an excellent cook and is always bringing lots of good things to eat from home. Future plans are vague at this time but we are sure that Thelma will go far in any venture she attempts. 169 ELAINE KATHERINE PRINCE Baltimore, Maryland Elaine is the cheerful nurse often seen comforting her patients even when harassed by the many duties that befall her. Her proficiency and sympathetic understanding mark her as a good nurse and the future holds much success for this friendly miss. Elaine plans to be active in her career and intends to continue nursing at University after graduation. Her preference is surgical nursing and the nursery is her idea of an enjoyable service. Being an amiable person her in- terests are varied and numerous. Knitting, reading, and music prove relaxing to Elaine when life becomes too demanding. HELENA LOUISE RAMSBURG Rocky Ridge, Maryland From the hills of western Maryland came good natured " Heanie. " Her habit of regressing to fetal position upon any bed and strongly resisting any efforts to arouse her has won her the title of " the little ole Mole. " " Heanie " is an active participant in all sports but her favorite pastime is bargain hunting. Many Baltimore stores have felt the effects of her relentless search for a good buy. Always a pleasant companion off or on duty, " Heanie " is conscientious, sincere and depend- able. We are sure that her student days will prove good preparation for her future plans to make a happy home for " Corky " after graduation. 170 SHIRLIE MAE REHEARD Columbia, Pennsylvania Frequent mix-ups often befall Shirlie and her roommate Fae as they are always together ami have such perfectly matched persiitiaiities. Shirlie is that al who always gels the " firstest " and the " hestest " " suntan in the nurses home. She keeps her figure trim by spending her leisure tinu- playing tennis, swim- ming, licirse-baek riding, and pUuing basketball. Her winning smile and ((intagious laughter ha e been greatly ajipreciated by bnlh patients and classmates wb.-ii llie wi-re dnwii in the dumps. Her plans for the future include going to College Park in quest (if a Maehelor " s Degree then getting up in the world as an airline hostess. MARY ELLEN REINHART Silver Spring, Maryland Many patients have expressed appreciation for the nurse who is quiet but very understanding and sympathetic. " Reiny " is one of our members who possesses such qualities. All of her problems receive sincere and mature evaluation before any action is taken. Mary Ellen correlates theory and practice well; due to her vivid memory and ease in retaining knowledge. One of her dearest possessions is a fifteen pound cat named Muffy. Among her hobbies are embroidering, crocheting, re- arranging furniture and sleeping (the latter being the one most widely practiced I . No definite plans have been made for the future. Undoubtedly she will be a welcomed colleague in any field she chooses. 171 FAE LUCILLE RENNINGER Ephrata, Pennsylvania A Pennsylvania Dutchwoman and proud of it, Fae has an amusing vocabulary of words and phrases from her home territory. She delights in telling the many advantages of the state where she was born. Fae ' s specialties are dancing and shower-singing. Her version of " I ' m In The Mood For Love " was frequently broadcasted on the sixth floor. On and off duty her pleasant personality and cheerful attitude has en- deared her to both classmates and patients alike. Fae ' s future plans are at present in a state of flux; but you can be sure that whatever she does she ' ll find success because she inspires confidence with her first smile and well-known and highly infectious laugh. MARY McBRIDE RICHMOND Baltimore, Maryland On August 25, 19.51 Mary Jane became a bride and left nursing to be Mrs. Richmond but she returned shortly ;to finish what she had started. However, she had to leave us again this time to become a mother to her big son Eric born as a 1952 fourth of July " Firecracker. " Nevertheless she returned again still determined to become a nurse. Most of her off-duty is spent in housekeeping. Mary Jane ' s favorite hobby is flying in her husband ' s airplane. Since Mary Jane ' s husband is a senior medical student they will graduate together then " fly off " ' to Milton. West Virginia where they will be general practitioner, wife and family. 172 CAROLYN RUTH ROGERSON Tyner, Nokth Carolina Hiith has contributed many things to our happiness and well-being during the last three years. The clientele of " Seventh Heaven " greeted her with open arms when she re- turned from home with watermelon and peanuts — home grown. She possesses one of the most distinctive accents in the class and has taken all jokes about it with a smile. Ruth was a very active and vital member of our victorious basketball team this year. Her leisure time often finds her bowling or ice skating. She loves children to the extent of wanting a large family. Ruth is heading for North Carolina to re-tar her heels after graduation. ALICE CRESAP SCHAFER Newburg, Maryland " Shafe " is one girl who follows the old adage of " work eight hours, sleep eight hours and save eight hours for fun. " Bowling, swimming, dancing and relaxing with her crocheting are included in her hours of enjoyment. In her second year of training Alice was president of our class. Prior to her entrance in nursing school " Shafe " ' attended College Park for two years which entitles her to a Bachelors of Science degree upon graduation. After she has graduated and become a " Mrs., " Alice hopes to do further nursing in Obstetrics or Public Health nursing. 173 EVELYN KOONTZ SHIPLEY Jessup, Maryland A few months after enrolling as a student nurse, Evelyn surprised her classmates by marrying her high school sweet- heart. After a leave of absence to await the arrival of her little daughter in 1952, Evelyn was still determined to return and finish her nursing which is proof enough of her sincere interest. She has projected her love for nursing into her work with a sympathetic smile and thus won many friends. Evelyn ' s future plans include her nursing and making a model mother and housewife for her family. Of all her clinical experiences, Evelyn found Obstetrics most interesting. PATRICIA ROBINSON SMITH EvANSTON, Illinois Pat has covered a lot of territory since her initial appearance in Illinois on October 20, 1932. She grew up in Maryland, Iowa and North Dakota, but spent most of her years in Grand Island. Nebraska. Nursing has been the career of her choice since early childhood and she has since proven her suitability for it. Pat is one who tears through the newspaper in order to work the crossword puzzle. She also enjoys reading, horse- back riding and every extra wink of sleep she can get. Future plans include working in psychiatry and building a home with her husband. Dr. Smith. 174 DELOKES ANN TUCKEK Dunkirk, Maryland " Tuck " is kiiDwn as one of mir happiest classmates. Where she is, there is sure to he loads of sparkling lau ihter and plenty of good times. Her keen interest in s])orls has kept her lively and for three years she was a faithful guard on the nurses ' iiaskethall team. However, looking to the lighter side of sports " Tuck ' s " favorite is dancing. Her |)atients. as well as her co-workers love licr sinceritv and her understanding interest in the jiroMems of others. We are sure that her happy smiles and sweet disposition will lead her to success and happiness as a graduate nurse. ESTHER JEANNE WATKINS Cedar Grove, Maryland Jeanne confesses to heing heart and soul, a small town girl. During her early days as our classmate she was one of our most quiet and reserved young ladies, but city ways soon look over; and now we know her to be full of pep and mischief. Conscientious and reliable, Jeamie ' s presence on the ward is always reassuring to both patients and co-workers. She has been active in church functions and was a most dependable treasurer of our senior class. Jeanne feels that the emotional needs of the patient are the most important, therefore psychi- atric nursing is her first choice as a graduate career. 175 SUSAN HULSE WOOD Galesville, Maryland Sue is known to all of us for her quiet but efficient manner portrayed as she performs her daily duties in the hospital. She has adjusted well to situations arising within hospital walls as well as those encountered at other times. Being a bride for almost two years has not hindered her progress in any way. First among her pet peeves is that relief shift. Off duty hours will often find her bowling with her husband. Future plans are not definite but sway toward general duty nursing and raising a forest of little Woods. Whatever your future has in store Sue. may it be the best for you. MARY SUSAN YEAGER Thomas, West Virginia Picture a tall. thin, blonde with a pleasing personality and that ' s Sue. When out of black stockings, she likes to stretch her legs at the " Y " swimming pool, dance or lead in the joke sessions. She rates the operating room tops in her nursing experience with its exacting technics. Her warm and friendly attitude wins the hearts of her patients and friends. Sue can ' t stand night duty, but seems to get her share. Despite grueling times on duty, Sue seems to keep her cheery manner and that ' s a secret we would all like to share. The future holds excite- ment and travel with a career in the Navy Nurse Corps. 176 LILLIAN VERN A ZANG Galesville, Maryland Blonde hair and blue eyes are the attractive coloring of this member of our class. On her day off she is usually found with suitcase in hand trotting down to the bus station to get home and breathe that fresh country air. A trip downtown would not be complete if she did not stop somewhere on the way back and get something to eat. Her pet peeve is a lot of noise when trying to sleep after a hard day ' s work. Verna plans to work in Annapolis after graduation. Her efficiency and love of nursing will make a success wherever she is. 177 Activities The Student Government Association of this School of Nursing is actively participated in by every student. In cooperation with a representa- tive from each class, the Student Government officers form a Student Council which exercises leg islative, executive and judicial powers. These officers are elected by the entire student body and exercise the right of administering punishment to those students who have disobeyed rules and regulations. Both the Student Council and the Student Government Association hold monthly meetings in which many issues vital to student happiness and welfare during the three year period in the School of Nursing are discussed and voted upon. A Social and a House Com- mittee work in unity with the Council to provide varied activities and to establish House Rules for the betterment of student life. There is time for social life.

Lower lejt: Television performances and appearances before various groups are some of the many activities in which our glee club participates. 180 When a student enters the nursing school, she finds that the Student Government Association Social Committee has planned a large sphere of activities for her during off-duty time. Sports such as bowling, basketball, and ice skating offer enjovment for every taste. The Glee Glub was particularly active during the Christmas season and a pajama party was held, during which the Christmas tree was trimmed. This year a Min- strel show and bazaar were sponsored by the Student Government Association to raise funds for student Public Health coats. Each month an informal dance is held to which members of the other I ' niversity of Maryland professional schools are invited. The two early Fall dances this year took place on the roof of our new Psychiatric Building. To round out this ex- citing year, the Junior-Senior formal was held. Li fe as a student nurse is most enjoyable. Hoiiiecoiiiing Queen In 1951 something new was added to the University School of Nursing. A Homecoming Queen, selected by official judges, was sent to participate in the festive Home Coming celebra- tions at College Park, which included competing with their chosen queen. Each year since then this has been done with eager enthusiasm and plans are being made to make this an annual tradition. Nancy Jo Kolhoss was our candidate this year. 181 I ■ B| V W W M HR Bis B hI i • 1 r b - ' M Such is life around the clock! Upper right: " It all started with that second banana split.
