Vleaver, M.D. Associate Dean and Chairman KHW ajb CC: 2 3 One hundred sixty-five men and women gathered in the Assembly room of the Health Sciences Library one day in late August, 1974. Though we would never assemble inside that auditorium again, thousands of hours would be spent with the same company in less comfortable surroundings. That particular day was a hot, humid, typically Baltimorean summer day. Those of us newly arrived from College Park or other pastoral college campuses looked forward to four years of the heat, traffic, noise and commo- tion of city living. Yet as time “pooshed on,” the climate and surroundings passed unnoticed by medical students busily engaged, in other matters. It started out as a full-time investment; part-time jobs were forsaken. In 1974 the curriculum at the University of Maryland School of Medicine called for four nine-month blocks, with three-month vacations interspersed; by the time we left it was fast becoming a continuous 48-month proposition. To us these curricular changes came as Minimester and more Junior Medicine and Surgery. The majority of us were fresh out of college, accustomed to arranging our own schedules, where for some “academic freedom” was translated to a sure “A” in art history and geology. Those halcyon years were soon relegated to a distant gyrus in the temporal lobe. Instead of wandering from classroom to classroom, building to building, we found ourselves in the same room, virtually the same seats, eight hours a day. It would not have taken long for a frequent lecturer to memorize where each of the 165 sat, if indeed he wanted a seating chart. For many of us the real test of whether we belonged here was the first Biochemistry exam. But one week later came the Anat- omy exam, and soon rising and falling levels of anxiety became a monotonous sequence. On that first day in August many of us were reunited with high school friends; not long afterwards the class was re-introduced to another high school throwback, the examination proctor. Escorts to the bathroom, however, were a medical school first. After two years all this changed; the study sessions in the old Howard Hall modules, the slide-tape shows with the classical music, the videotapes, the bluejeans, the post-exam Campus Inn get-togethers, even the Psych courtyard football games, all van- ished into thin air. Soon there were new goals, new skills, and new knowledge to master. Now attention was drawn to the patient, the problem list, the differential diagnoses, side-effects, progress notes, the discharge summary and follow-up. In one word it was “clinical,” and for the perennial classroom student it was to become a new way of life. Not long after we had forsaken the “playground” of the classroom, we found ourselves leaving the familiar University medical center and venturing out into the “provinces,” the community hospitals where most doctors work and most patients go. Although our rotations varied in location and particulars of experience, what we all had in common was the opportunity to learn how to use our hands and their tactile sense, our hearing, powers of observation, and our minds to coordinate these in arriving at a logical evaluation of the patient. Our needs included taking an adequate, coherent history, understanding what actually ails the patient, relating this to our comprehension of health and disease, translating it into the physician’s vocabulary for contemplation and pre- cise communication with our colleagues, swiftly and logically formulating a treatment plan, and finally reviewing this with the patient to facilitate his understanding and cooperation. This new profession of ours teaches not only how to diagnose and treat a patient, but also a unique perspective of human nature and a special way of dealing with the patient and truths we are trained to see. The physician has been given the privilege of prob- ing with his fingers and machines into all of man’s crevices, sulci and secretions, establishing a professional relationship with his patient based on trust and grounded in scientific principle. With this privilege, responsibility is entrusted to the physician by the public; judicious, compassionate management earns him society’s respect. Further clinical experience during our post-graduate training will refine our newly developed skills. As we continue to learn, we look forward to teaching ourselves, our patients, and our colleagues, as directed by the literal meaning of the word “doctor.” “Okay, ril play house with you. You take care of the house and kids while I finish med school.” 4 5 6 ( There was a panel discussion prior to the official beginning of the Anatomy course. Its purpose ostensibly was to allay existing anxiety about cutting up bodies. By the time the discussion drew to a close, any behavior we might possibly exhibit had been described as a reaction to our inevitable anxiety! For many the apprehension intensified with the closing words, “Now let’s go to the Bressler Building and meet your cadaver, your best friend and teacher for this course.” 9 10 11 FACULTY FOLLIES 13 Davidge Hall was the focal point of the campus in the early days of the medical school. The hospital building was located diagonally across from it on the corner of Lombard and Greene streets. Medical students lived in local boarding houses with three students to a room and an extra charge lev- ied for firewood. The students were characterized as mature and very serious in their studies. They faithfully attended lectures even though attendance was not required. Except for a final oral exam, all examinations were optional. These exams were designed “to inspire emulation and expose ignorance.” Eager for knowl- edge, the students clamored for extra lectures at night and for Saturday exams. Their daily routine included seven courses, not the least of which was Anatomy. It was a favorite course of the students and required a great deal of time. Long eve- nings were spent by the students in the d issecting laboratory. The city yielded an astonishing abundance of cadavers pro- cured by local “bodysnatchers.” September 15, 1960 Dr. Figge delivers the opening lecture for the Department of Anatomy. The first Baltimore Infirmary, which later became University Hospital, was the first hospital in the United States to be built purposely for the bedside instruction of medical students. After two years of study, a thesis in Latin was required as a “test of the student’s general education.” Often these doc- uments were one hundred pages or more in length. The final exam itself was an ordeal for the student. On exami- nation day the entire faculty gathered at a long table to query each student on his knowledge of medicine and sci- ence. A majority vote allowed the student to pass; in case of a tie the student was permitted to take a second exam. Of the ordeal Professor Dunglison noted, “The students frequently lost their composure and sometimes their dinner as well.” Graduation was a gala affair attended by the fashionable elite of Baltimore as well as friends and relatives of the graduates. Professor Davidge, father of the University, was j loudly applauded every year for he was well-loved by his | students. Most of the graduates went on to practice medi- i cine, though it was not considered a prestigious or profit- | able profession in the nineteenth century. | Indeed, the University was fondly remembered by its | alumni. In 1837, recalling his days at the University a doc- I tor wrote, “. . . Under the beautiful dome they have spent | many hours of happiness.” I| o not waste the hours of dayhght in listening to that which you may read by night.” Sir William Osier “The Stuart R.

V hereas these feelings have only just recently surfaced, to the point where three class meetings have been held to discuss them, they have be en developing throughout the semester. The Sophemore Class has agreed that the follo ing grievances are the principle ones involved: 1. Excessive amount of material covered during the course, in relation to the time allotted. Failure to faithful! ' ’ abide by the requirements stipulated by the School of Medicine Council •v ith regards to the elimination of coiurse content (i.e. not course time) in adherence with the current curriculum. 2. Non -cumulative grading policy rtiich is different in nature frexn all other Basic Science Courses. This policy has resulted in an ovei-v helmingly large number of students being unable to complete the coui ' se in the required time period. Effectively, this means that approximately 25 of the class will be seriously compromising their miniinester experience. 3- Because of (l) and (2) above, a disproix rtionate amount of time has been spent by the students in studying liicrobiolog ' , which has severe.l ' interfered with our other coursework. 4. General teaching quali ty has been below the standards of good medical education , Examples : a. too frequently the lectiires have been disorganized b. an insufficient number of handouts to supplement the lecture material; more extensive handout coverage would have facilitated our learning experience We are aware, of course, that many of the above grievances are irreconcilable at this late date. However, except for the exam policy, all the grievances are submitted in the hope that adjustments will be made in future Microbiology courses. Some specific requests of the Microbiology Department in connection with the present course are: 1. That the students final examination grade be averaged • Lth his her sectional exam average on a l 3:2 3 ratio respectively. One of our main reasons for requesting this is that it ill enable those students who failed one or more sectional exams to compleT:e the course on schedule. Under this new grading policy, students who achieve an overall passing grade will not be required to retake sectional exams during the minimcstcr. For those who do not achieve an ovc-rell passing gracie, the policy of making up sectional exams -would still appl ' -.

ADES Royal Victorio “McGill” University Hospital Internal Medicine Montreal, Canada In apparent defiance of the laws of energy conservation, Phil managed to stay in shape as a long-distance runner throughout medical school, reguarly completing at least several miles daily. During senior year, he finished both the New York and Maryland Marathons, each a grueling 26 miles. A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Phil joined our class as a junior, trotting over from the University of Brussels. Prior to that European sojourn, he majored in Zoology at College Park while in the General Honors Program. Phil continued to maintain an impressive academic pace in medical school. In addition to being elected to A.O.A., he devoted some of his Olympian stamina to scientific research, working with Dr. Michael Fisher, evaluating the cardiovascular status of ath- letes. A LEER T MIC HA EL A MMA NN Charity Hospital of Louisiana Surgery New Orleans, Louisiana After studying at Frostberg State College and graduating summa cum laude, with a B.S. in Chemistry, Bert joined us to study medicine. This avid spelunker is a native of Oakland, Md. who, when not probing with his fingers into the Foramen of Winslow, took time off to explore deep vertical caves. Con- sequently, his most memorable experience during these past years was a caving trip to Mexico during Christmas vacation, 1977. In addition to caving, Bert enjoys water skiing and sail- ing, and relaxes with the “Nibelungenlied” or Johann Pachel- bel’s “Canon in D.” Bert plans a career in General Surgery, and hopes to have a private hospital where he can spend time talking with patents. 40 ROBER T ETHA N A P RLE BA UM University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Robert received a B.S. in Zoology at College Park before joining us in more serious pursuits. During medical school, he performed well enough to be elected a member of A.O.A., and found time to do a surgical externship at Union Memorial. He admires intelligence and fairness in his teachers, and these characteristics of his own should serve him well in the future. Although Robert plans an internship in Internal Medicine, ten years from now he anticipates a career in Thoracic Sur- gery. SISTER SUSAN ASHTON York Hospital Obstetrics — Gynecology York, Pennsylvania Sister Susan, a member of the Sisters of Mercy in the prov- ince of Baltimore, came to medical school following ten years as a school principal and teacher, and six years as assistant administrative vice-president of a hospital. She did her under- graduate work at Mount St. Agnes, receiving her B.A. in Edu- cation, and went on to graduate school at George Washington University for an M.B.A. in Health Care Administration. Very active during medical school. Sister Susan performed summer work in Family Practice in southern Maryland, and an externship in Internal Medicine at Mercy Hospital. With the ability to care for those to whom she has dedicated her life. Sister Susan hopes to work among the underprivileged of Baltimore. 41 STEVEN M. BARNETT South Baltimore General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland The first of many alumni of Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus to be found in this book, Steve received his B.A. in Natural Sciences in 1974. In his modesty, he tells us that pass- ing was the object most stressful to him in medical school, but he managed to do quite well considering he played more holes of golf and skied more slopes than the total number of lectures he attended. He is grateful for getting to leave medical school at last and hopes to survive the coming ordeal of internship, planning eventually to become a Board Certified Shepherd or a Radiologist. “Thanks, Dad, for paying off all those professors!” G. HO WA RD BA THON University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Howie, a native of Elkton, came to medical school after completing his undergraduate work at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, where he majored in Chemical Engi- neering. He received both B.A. and B.S. degrees, and was elected to membership of Tau Beta Pi and the Joint Engineer- ing Council. Howie’s medical school years were pretty busy, as he took part in the Pediatric Tracking Program, completed a Dean’s fellowship in Pediatric Research, and was the clean- up batter for the class softball team. In the midst of all this, he married classmate Joan whose support, love and encourage- ment he credits most for his successful completion of medical school. Howie plans a residency in Orthopedic Surgery, and eventually looks forward to working in private practice and raising a family. fr JOAN MEIER BA THON University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Joanie came upstate from Silver Spring to medical school after receiving her B.S. in Biology from Marquette University where she was Phi Beta Kappa. She met Howard over a cadaver in Anatomy lab, and we know the rest of the story. Joanie will stay on at University for a residency in Internal Medicine. DAROLD KEVIN BEARD Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Darold did his undergraduate work at the University of Maryland — College Park, before returning to his home in Baltimore for medical school. He was president of the class Freshman year, but gave up politics and took up Christ instead, since his most memorable experience over the last four years was receiving Jesus Christ as his personal savior. He organized the L.O.R.D. Corporation — a non-profit Christian corporation to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord. Darold is grateful to his parents and his wife Lynn for their encouragement and moral support during these past years, and he will be doing a flexible internship preparatory to a career in Medicine. 43 EDWIN H. B ELLIS University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Ed attended college at both the University of Maryland — College Park, and Emory University, graduating from the lat- ter with a B.S. in Biology and Phi Sigma honors. He then spent time driving a tractor-trailer before commencing his medical studies. His performance over the next four years would suggest that he simply kept on trucking, hauling off with two publications and membership in A.O.A. in his junior year. At the V.A. he worked on Dean’s fellowships with Dr. Iber and Dr. Fisher. When not in the hot pursuit of knowl- edge, Ed enjoys opera, playing golf, and getting out of Balti- more. Leading his list of most memorable experiences during medical school is his marriage in June 1976 to Mary, who presently works in the O’Nell Labs at Johns Hopkins. Decid- ing that he wanted to be a Neurosurgeon ranks an important second. Goodbye tractors, hello traction. JEEERE Y STUA R T BENDER Johns Hopkins Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Jeff came to medical school from Johns Hopkins University where he received his B.A. in Chemistry and worked hard enough to be elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa. As a fresh- man in med. school, he participated in biochemical research, along with his regular studies. During the clinical years his interest became centered on Surgery, so he will be doing his residency in General Surgery at the John on the way, no doubt, to a career in academics at a major teaching and research center. 44 CHARLES W. BENNETT Franklin Square Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland Chuck hails from way down in Lusby, Maryland, a pastoral setting where he developed his fondness for hunting, fishing, and water skiing. Moving to the big city to go to college, Chuck sustained this attraction for things organic by major- ing, most appropriately, in the Natural Sciences at Johns Hopkins. Prior to starting medical school, he travelled around the U.S. for two months, no doubt assuaging his passion for wide, open spaces as he anticipated the lackluster confines of Howard Hall. Life in Baltimore, however, did not prove dis- appointing to Chuck, who met his wife Gail (Social Work, U. of Md. ’78) soon after starting medical school. He feels that Gail’s patience and understanding have contributed to his successful completion of four years of hard work. In addition to the regular schedule. Chuck belonged to the Family Prac- tice Club, and he spent one summer in the O.M.E. writing computer programs. He hopes eventually to become a family practitioner in a rural area of the state. Having already seen Dr. Woodward examine a patient in the bathtub. Chuck’s only regret to date is not having seen a case of tsutsugamushi disease. ADAM BILLET University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Active involvement in the Boy Scouts of America helped to mold Adam’s character and prepare him for a life time of rigors, like the challenging western ski slopes he loves to navi- gate. Of course, it has often been more of an uphill climb than a downhill breeze since those mellow days of campfires and merit badges. At College Park, Adam earned a B.S. with hon- ors in General Physical Sciences. He distinguished himself in medical school by prosecting cadavers for the Anatomy Department, and representing the senior class in the student government. He slipped down South at one point to do a Sur- gical externship at the University of Florida. Adam is grateful to his parents for their generous assistance, and Saria J. Sad- lin, a future midwife, for her companionship, love, and under- standing during these often grueling years. Beyond Surgical training, Adam’s goals are simple enough — his own house and eternal happiness. 45 STEVEN BILLET York Hospital Internal Medicine York, Pennsylvania Perhaps the shared zygote had something to do with it. Whatever the underlying factors may be, both of our class’ Billets grew up to find the lure of skiing just about irresistible. It was the magnificence of the Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado steeps that enticed Steve immediately following his gradua- tion from College Park, where he had obtained a B.S. with honors in Agricultural and Life Sciences. After his ups and downs out West, Steve drove his motorcycle to Florida, then shifted gears from easy-rider to jet-setter and flew to Jamaica. When he got to medical school, he attempted to share his vision of the good life with others by helping to organize a ski- trip to New England for UMAB students. At one point, he returned West to do a Family Practice fellowship in Boulder, Colorado. The grandeur of the Rockies notwithstanding, Ste- ve’s first appendectomy remains his most memorable experi- ence over the past four years. He dreams of having a real nice sailboat one of these days and is undecided about whether to go into Medicine or Surgery (which is somewhat akin to choosing between heaven or Hull). TERESA ANN BILZ North Carolina Memorial Hospital Pediatrics Chapel Hill, North Carolina While Terry claims to have studied Biochemistry to attaint I high honors during her three years at College Park, there’s a rumor that her real major was Phys. Ed. It seems she’s always off swimming, horseback riding, playing tennis, or skiing, not , to mention all the dancing and partying over the past four, ' years. Despite all the extracurricular activities, Terry man- r aged to do very well in medical school, doing a Dean’s fellow- ship in Pediatrics, and earning membership in A.O.A. during the junior year. She attributes part of her success to her par-r ents who gave her much encouragement and support, both! before and during medical school. Future plans include a ; Pediatrics residency in North Carolina. After that, Terry’sM. course is uncertain but is sure to include skiing, skiing, andl more skiing. | lh 46 EDWARD N. BODURGIL Temple University Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ed’s hometown is College Park where he earned a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Maryland and was elected into Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi. In medical school, he served on the Medical Council and also performed a Dean’s fellowship in Cardiovascular Pathology, on which he published a paper. Ed’s biggest thrill was delivering a baby for the first time, though he is remembered by many for the prod- igious quantities of beer he consumed at class parties. Ulti- mately, Ed plans a future in Internal Medicine with a private practice in a medical subspecialty. PA TRICK THOMAS BOLDEN Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital Family Practice Johnstown, Pennsylvania Pat came to Baltimore from his hometown in Cumberland and obtained his college degree in Chemistry from Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, where he was inducted into Phi Beta Delta. A member of the American Chemical Society, Pat obtained valuable Geriatric experience by working summers as an orderly in a nursing home; he performed a Family Prac- tice preceptorship one summer, and also functioned as a lab instructor in a Gross Anatomy summer course. In spite of these numerous extracurricular activities, Pat stayed in shape as well, playing tennis and basketball, and tobogganing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Hearing the sweet chime of wedding bells is quite likely in the future, as Pat plans to wed Kathy Fowler, a graduate student in Biochemistry. Eventu- ally, he expects to be in private practice. 47 HOWARD BOLTANSKY University of Maryland Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Who cuts anatomy class to fly off to West Virginia for a Yoo Hoo? Who makes a small fortune in football betting and blows i all in one wild, crazy night in Vegas? Who throws fan- tastic Halloween parties for the entire class? None other than the one and only Howard Boltansky. Howard zoomed down to Baltimore from Medford, Massachusetts where he attended Tufts University and graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Bio-Psych. When he finally touched earth in med. school, Howard did a Psychiatry fellowship and also some Rheuma- tology work at Good Sam. He is indebted to Dr. Rapoport for his teaching, good counsel, and for strengthening his upper arm with affectionate punches. At the beginning of med. school, Howard expected four years of hard work. What actu- ally happened was four years with good people and full expe- riences. You get what you deserve. Howard plans to complete a residency in Internal Medi- cine, and in the future hopes to teach in a university setting. MICH A EL JOSEPH BOSSE San Diego Naval Hospital Surgery San Diego, California Mike is one of the unique group of class members who attended one of the Service academies, receiving his B.S. in Bioscience at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. His summers were spent on training cruises aboard combatant ships to the North Atlantic, Europe, and the Mediterranean. During his medical school years, Mike married Ellen and saw the birth of their first son, Ryan Shane. He was also able to take time occasionally from his studies to pursue his hobby of sailing. Mike plans to do his residency at the Naval Hospital in Surgery, and looks forward to a long career as a surgeon in the Navy, and owning a 27 foot sailboat. “Is there really an Air Force?” i 48 I DO UGLA S FRA N KLIN BO WMA N, JR. U.S. Public Health Service Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Doug came to medical school with a B.A. in Social Studies Education from the University of Maryland, a B.S. in Biology from Washington College in Chestertown, Med., 3V2 years experience as a high school teacher, a wife, Barbara, and I shortly into freshman year, a daughter, Rebecca. Whew! In I addition to his medical studies, Doug performed a Dean’s fel- lowship, studying families with problems caused by alcohol. : While he found med. school hard work and a lot of sacrifice, he survived this ordeal thanks to the love and support pro- vided by Barb and Becky. For the next few years, Doug will be doing a residency in Medicine. Ten years from now, his dream is to be settled in the country with his family, practicing medicine and camping, hiking, and fishing in his spare time. PHILIP ROGER BOWMAN University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Phil came to medical school from the University of Mary- land — College Park, where he received his B.S. in Zoology with high honors, and was elected to several honor societies. As an undergraduate he spent his summers doing research at the National Institute of Health, which he was fortunate enough to be able to continue during med. school. While engaged in the four year medical education process, Phil man- aged to completely renovate an abandoned house near Uni- versity Hospital, and whatever time was left he dedicated to his hobby of electronics, especially as related to biomedical instrumentation. Phil plans to stay in Baltimore for a resi- dency in OB-GYN and looks forward to a career in academ- ics or a group practice in the Baltimore area. 49 DAVID A. BRYAN Geisinger Medical Center Medicine Danville, Maryland David has done both his undergraduate and medical school work in the Baltimore area, graduating from U.M.B.C. with a B.A. in Biology and Psychology. He considers his medical school years personally enriching and strengthening, having gained more meaning in his life and stability in his medical school experience from his study of the Bible, in the context of the knowledge of a singular relationship with Christ. His extracurricular activities have included the Campus Christian Fellowship and Bible Study, as well as tournament chess and chess by mail. David will do his residency in Internal Medi- cine, with perhaps a subspecialty in Cardiology, and hopes to set up practice where people and facilities would be available for his patients’ physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. “Consider it all joy my brethren when you encounter vari- ous trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1 :2-4 MAX BULMASH After Max graduated from Yeshiva University in New York, receiving his B.A. in Biology cum laude in 1972, he tra- velled to Israel for a year’s rabbinical study. He then returned to Baltimore where he performed graduate work in our Department of Anatomy, and one year later began his medi- cal training with the Class of 1978. During his medical school years Max enjoyed playing the electric bass and piano, taught Sunday school, directed a children’s choir and was leader of a youth group. In fact, he is cutting a record with a children’s choir and musicians from the Baltimore Symphony. Max is grateful for the support of his wife Judy, an elementary school teacher, and his father, familiar to us as an Anatomy instruc- tor. Max plans to continue his research next year and eventu- ally complete his Ph.D. in Anatomy, and ten years from now can envision a life of practicing medicine and raising a large family. 50 TIMOTH Y JA MRS B UR TON Cincinnati General Hospital Pathology Cincinnati, Ohio Originally from New Carrollton, Md., Tim majored in Bio- chemistry at College Park to earn his B.S. and membership in Phi Beta Kappa. Rather than leave the rolling hills of Mary- land, Tim came to Md. Medical to further his education. Dur- ing his freshman and sophomore years, he acted as media librarian, student tour guide, and sang in the campus choir. Tim is going to try his hand at Pathology, and plans to do some gardening and running in his free time. AMY JANE BYER University of Tennessee Obstetrics-Gynecology Knoxville, Tennessee Amy came to medical school from the University of Mary- land — College Park where she was elected to both Phi Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies while earning her B.S. in Zoology. Amy’s medical school years were extremely full as she completed a Dean’s summer fellowship, and was a dele- gate to the AMA convention in Chicago in 1975. She was also one of the founding members of Synapse — the student-fac- ulty pub. Her extracurricular interests include the guitar and piano, as well as swimming and travel. She was able to further the travelling and medical school experience during her senior year, by taking electives in Houston, Texas and Gainesville, Florida. Amy would like to do her residency in OB-GYN and in the future hopes to limit her practice, in order to leave time for research interests, possibly in Perinatology. 51 ELA INE HA RRISON CA LEA HA N Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center Medicine Chicago, Illinois Elaine is one member of the graduating class who likes to stay on the move. At Monmouth College in Illinois, she stud- ied Biology for her A.B., graduating magna cum laude. Then, after a year of research on heavy metal poisoning at the Argonne National Laboratory, she spent six months working and travelling in Alaska. Elaine has fond memories of the endless library of multiple choice exams sophomore year, and the tolerance and support shown by her housemates during the changeable moods that typically accompany sleep depri- vation, but her most memorable experience during medical school was watching the “Rabies” film in Micro. Having dis- covered that med. school was an individual process of select- ing learning material, studying, filing and rearranging data to reach a clear, logical concept, Elaine is now ready to tackle Internal Medicine. In the future, she looks forward to living in Bali Hai (or some neighboring island), and completely filling her passport. “Sometimes the magic works . . . and sometimes it doesn’t” from “Little Big Man” DA LE BRA DEE Y CA EE University of Maryland Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Brad came to the University of Maryland from Brigham Young University where he earned his B.S. in Microbiology and Zoology. Before starting medical school he spent two years as a missionary in South America, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and worked as a psychiatric nursing aide his last year of college. During medical school. Brad continued to take part in many extracurricular and school related activities, including the Pediatric Tracking Pro- gram, a summer preceptorship in Family Practice, as well as being class projectionist for two years and a member of the morning student blood drawing team. Brad also donated his time to be a merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts and a ward clerk in his church. He owes his thanks for the successful completion of medical school to his wife Maria Dolores (“Lola”), who over the last four years was a good provider, masters candidate, teacher and mother to their infant son. Brad will do his residency in Pediatrics and looks forward to the private practice of Peds. in a small town somewhere in the Southwest. 52 RONALD BRUCE CA USTON Martin Army Hospital Family Practice Fort Banning, Georgia Ron, originally from Hadden Heights, N.J., studied Science and Engineering at Catholic University in Washington to earn his B.A., graduating summa cum laude in 1974. Prior to that, he was a Seabee with the U.S. Navy for three and a half years, and worked as an industrial electrical trouble-shooter, travell- ing extensively in the continental U.S., Alaska, Mexico, Can- ada, and Viet Nam. He spends his free time fishing, working in photography, and collecting marine organisms. During his tour of duty at Md. Medical, he was a prosector for Anatomy and did a Family Practice preceptorship, while his wife helped by being a good provider and homemaker. Ron began a Fam- ily Practice residency in February and, if the legislation and opportunities are right, will remain with the military. In part- ing, Ron sends best wishes to his classmates and a reminder, “Don’t ever say ‘never’!” EDWARD TAIK-WHA CHAN New York Medical College Surgery New York, New York Though originally from Rockville, Ed came to medical school from Cambridge, Mass., where he earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering at M.I.T, When not directing his ener- gies towards mastering medical matters, Ed relaxes to music and enjoys basketball and skiing. While in medical school, he performed an externship in Medicine at Maryland General Hospital. Baltimore is too small for this city dweller at heart, so Ed is travelling to Manhattan for his Surgical residency. 53 JOHN CA L VIN CHA TLOS, JR. Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center Pediatrics New York, New York Coming from Emmitsburg has not been a hindrance for Calvin, who has managed not only to survive but to excel in the big city environment. He was Phi Beta Kappa at Washing- ton University at St. Louis, graduating in 1974 with a B.A. in Psychology. While at medical school, Calvin was one of the students in the Combined Accelerated Program in Psychiatry (CAPP), enabling him to do a six month medical internship at Franklin Square Hospital before starting his post-graduate Pediatric work in the Big Apple. He was also active in extra- curricular affairs, performing a fellowship on hypnosis, partic- ipating in the Human Dimensions of Medical Education series, assuming the role of leader at an I.H.B. workshop, as well as being a member of the Student Council and Baltimore Ethical Society. Calvin was also honored as the recipient of a scholarship for study in Psychiatry, Neurology, or Primary Care. His plans include the resumption of psychiatric training after completing his Pediatrics, to eventually work with ado- lescents in a medical and psychiatric capacity, and doing any- thing else that turns him on along the way. RICHARD D. COFSKY Maimonides Medical Center Internal Medicine Brooklyn, New York Originally from Silver Spring, Richard attended Queens College in New York, majoring in Mathematics, and did not come to medical school until after attending a Rabbinical seminary. He also worked as a computer programmer for the U.S. Weather Bureau, so by the time he joined us he already knew that “God is good” and you can’t predict the weather. While in medical school he performed a Family Practice pre- ceptorship and took part in Cardiology Research, enabling him to present a paper at the American Federation of Clinical Research in Boston. In spite of these academic accomplish- ments, Richard regards his marriage to Miriam last year as his most memorable and significant experience, and looks for- ward to doing a Medical internship in Brooklyn. 54 DA VI D ELLIOT COHEN Children’s Memorial Hospital Pediatrics Chicago, Illinois After obtaining a B.A. in Biology with honors from the Johns Hopkins University, this native Baltimorean decided to come downtown to attend medical school. Although he worked in research labs for two summers before joining us, Dave chose to obtain experience in the Tuerk House and as an alcoholism counselor in the hospital emergency room dur- ing the basic science years. In addition, Dave presented a sem- inar on emergency treatment of the alcoholic to counselors in training. He survived the stress of Anatomy, and suffered through the occasional boredom of memorization to find a stimulating and thought-provoking career in Pediatrics. Even- tually, Dave looks forward to teaching in a university setting. IKA J. K. COHEN Baylor College of Medicine Affiliates Flexible Houston, Texas Ira came to medical school fully prepared for all its little quirks and peculiarities, having already obtained his Master’s degre e in Anatomy before starting with us. Prior to that he obtained his B.A. degree in Political Science from Southamp- ton College of Long Island University. His graduate school work with Drs. Donati and Barrett included cancer research, and enabled him to publish an article in the American Journal of Anatomy. Besides being an avid tennis player, in his spare time Ira participated in the University Faculty-Student Sen- ate, and broadened his sphere of educational experiences by doing consults at The Crease in Towson. He is a member of the Southern Association of Anatomists. In future years, Ira hopes to be flourishing in his chosen profession of Dermatol- ogy and driving to his office in a Porsche - 91 IT. “Uncommon manifestations of common diseases are more common than common manifestations of uncommon dis- eases.” Sr. William Osier 55 JOSEPH THOMAS CROWE University of Michigan Affiliates Surgery Ann Arbor, Michigan A College Park transplant, Joe came to UMAB with high honors and a B.S. in Zoology. After surviving sophomore year, when it seemed to him that we had an exam every Mon- day, he was simultaneously honored and given the opportu- nity to perform medical research by being awarded the Dr. Henry R. Viets Myasthenia Gravis Research Fellowship. As time went on Joe became interested in Orthopedic Surgery, and performed senior clerkships in Orthopedics at the Univer- sity of Rochester, the University of Colorado Medical Center, and also at the University of Michigan. Sponsoring his medi- cal school activities, both financially and emotionally, was Joe’s wife Donna, a medical technologist as well as graduate student in Clinical Pathology. Sometime in the not-so-distant future Joe hopes to provide care in the private practice of Orthopedic Surgery in the Baltimore-Washington area, and have a house, instead of an apartment to live in. When asked if he had a favorite quote, song, or author, Joe, whose comic relief often made the days seem shorter, replied, “No, but this is my favorite question!” JOSEPH D ' ANTON 10, JR. Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland One of several Ph. D’s in our class, Joe attended college at Ohio Wesleyan University, where he was a J.V. Lacrosse coach, prior to performing his graduate studies in our Depart- ment of Anatomy, to complete his dissertation on renal hilar lymph in August 1977. He also gained valuable experience as a nuclear medicine technician, a field he became involved in back in 1966. His plans include a residency in Internal Medi- cine. 56 STEPHEN M. DOBEN Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Ori ginally from Silver Spring, Steve came to medical school from Washington University in St. Louis where he was Phi Beta Kappa and received his B.A. in Psychology. Before beginning with our class he took some time off and travelled in the Orient. His diligence, hard work and perseverance dur- ing medical school served as an example for many of his fel- low students. Steve plans a residency in Internal Medicine fol- lowed by training in a medical subspecialty. LOUIS JOSEPH DOMENICI University of Maryland Internal Medicine, Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland “Leaping Lou” came to medical school loaded down with degrees and honors in math, science, and biology dating back from his college days at Hagerstown Junior College and West Virginia University. No slouch during his medical school years, Lou continued this tradition of superior studies and acquired an academic record worthy of membership in A.O.A. He also participated in two Family Practice extern- ships as well as a Medical externship at Union Memorial. In the midst of all this hard work, Lou kept alive his outside interests which include playing tennis and basketball, trap shooting (and reloading), and model building. Unbelievable as it may seem, Lou swears to us that he also managed, some- how, to read at least one journal a week, cover-to-cover, dur- ing all four years of medical school. (“After all,” he says, “I’ve got to have my Sports Illustrated to keep me sane.”) As Lou sees it, his professional future includes Board Certification in Internal Medicine and possibly also in Infectious Diseases. His personal future holds the prospect and desire for happi- ness and good health to be shared with his fiancee Ann. We wish him the best of luck in both pursuits. 57 A UST IN DOYLE University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Emerging unscathed from the salt mines of the Johns Hop- kins premedical curriculum, Austin had not anticipated find- ing so many areas of uncertainty in medical knowledge and practice. Yet despite periodic frustrations, and thanks largely to the inspiration of physical diagnosis instructor. Dr. John Sadler, Austin now feels encouraged that he may someday make contribution to the art of patient care. His enthusiasm for scholarly pursuits and clinical experiences has flowed along remarkably diverse channels. During the pre-clinical years, in addition to braving the formaldehyde fumes to pro- sect cadavers for a summer, he spent lots of time in the depths of the autopsy room, doing extra work in Pathology. He also performed a clinical externship in Medicine at Union Memo- rial in the summer of ’76. While on the junior Psychiatry rota- tion, he especially valued the experience of working with a young patient who, no doubt at least in part to Austin’s efforts (and Thorazine), returned from psychosis. Future plans include training in Internal Medicine, being safely ensconced on the clinical faculty of a large hospital, having a forty-foot yacht named “Those Long Years of Medical School,” and fathering three children. His wife Elisa, a research associate at the Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, says two. Talk about uncertainty! “I don’t think we’re in Kansas, anymore.” Dorothy to Toto in “The Wizard of Oz” “If you want to screw a buzzard, you haye to play the game.” Dr. Richard Morton FRANKLIN MARSHALL DOUG LIS York Hospital Surgery York, Pennsylvania Frank came to medical school from Brown University where he majored in Human Biology and graduated with hon- ors. He began to broaden his horizons early, spending his sen- ior year of high school studying in Oxford, England. While in college he spent a good deal of time working as a data proc- essing analyst involved in biochemical research. During medi- cal school, Frank became interested in health care systems outside our country’s big cities. In pursuing this interest he participated in an externship in Indiana, Pa., where he found he could observe first hand the delivery of health care to the rural community. He was the guy who gained distinction and notoriety by arranging our freshman black bag sale. Also dur- ing medical school, Frank triumphed in affairs of the heart, marrying Julie Brown, a fashion designer, who provided him with understanding and support during these demanding four years. He hopes that in a few years he and Julie will settle down in a semi-rural area where he can build a general prac- tice in ENT. 58 LARRY M. El N BINDER Georgetown University Hospital Neurology Washington,D.C. His ninth grade math teacher said he would never amount to anything. But young Lariy ' refused to be deterred. Not unlike those rocketships he learned about while working at Goddard Space Flight Center, Larry managed to soar through a Psychology major at College Park, graduating with high honors and a Phi Beta Kappa key. As he touched down in Baltimore, he knew that medical school would require hard work. Four revolutions around the sun and several clinical rotations later, Larry also realizes that being a doctor is not, alas, as glorious a thing as he had originally expected. An externship in Family Practice and working at N.I.H. has undoubtedly helped to ground him more solidly in the physi- cian’s earthly realm. Larry is grateful to his wife Joni, an art teacher, for being generally supportive, and his dorm buddies for their daily quizzing. He hopes to practice clinical Neurol- ogy in the future. JON A THA N A ELEN ED LOW Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Even though his future as a soft frozen yogurt salesman looked promising, Jonny came to medical school. He was well prepared, having earned his A.B. degree in philosophy at Bos- ton University, graduating magna cum laude. Working in the Shock Trauma Unit kept Jonny off the streets for two sum- mers during med. school, while sailing, playing the flute and travel occupied many of his remaining hours of freedom. This junior A.O.A. member decided that Obstetrics wasn’t for him, since those slimy blue things were far too slippery. Neverthe- less, the nights spent on the wards learning clinical medicine with his colleagues left him many fond memories, including the one night he spent with Howard Boltansky trying to do an L.P. on a 3-B patient with the D.T.’s. Jonny looks forward to returning to Boston for his intern- ship and envisions a life of academic Internal Medicine, sub- specializing in Rheumatology or Infectious Disease. Eventu- ally he hopes to be teaching and practicing, with a blend of thinking, working and caring. 59 IAN SCOTT ELLIOT Cleveland Clinic Hospital Internal Medicine Cleveland, Ohio Ian came to medical school well prepared, with honors and a B.S. degree in Biochemistry from College Park, in addition to three years experience in a physics lab and summers spent as a construction worker. Among his many achievements over the last four years, Ian considers co-authoring two papers in experimental pharmacology, completing sophomore year of medical school, and serving as class president our sophomore, junior, and senior years, as some of his more significant accomplishments. Not to imply that Ian never relaxed; indeed, these past four years offered Ian numerous opportuni- ties to race downhill on the ski slopes, opportunities he cer- tainly could not refuse. After such a long term of office, it seems our Mr. President has run out of announcements . . . Oh yes. There’s just one more thing. Having grown accus- tomed to addressing large groups, Ian would like to have a large family to make him feel right at home. GREGOR Y OA KES FA ITH Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native of Catonsville, Greg graduated from UMBC with a cum laude degree in Chemistry and membership in Phi Kappa Phi. He joined us at Maryland Medical after doing a graduate fellowship and working as a teaching assistant in Chemistry at Johns Hopkins. While in medical school he dis- covered the importance of judgement in making decisions about treating patients, and thanks to his friends he was able to maintain his sense of humor and a balanced perspective in the grueling process of medical education. Greg’s ambition for the future is a private practice of Internal Medicine in the Baltimore area. 60 i r I DA VID ARTHUR FELDER, JR. i Washington Hospital Center I Surgery j Washington, D.C. i I After attending Monmouth College in Illinois and Howard I University in Washington, this Dean’s List student obtained ;his B.S. in electrical engineering in 1967. David worked as a ■ circuit design engineer for 2 years at RCA, then IBM ! employed his talents for 4 years as a systems engineer. He S finally worked out the bug in his program and, with the ! encouragement of his parents and friend Cynthia, applied to s medical school. He dedicated himself to endless hours of late I night study in the Howard Hall modules, often seen exchang- I ing pearls of wisdom with Marcia Watson, and breathed a sigh of relief when the basic science years finally came to an I end. David was a delegate to the SNMA convention in New Orleans in 1975, and attended an NMA convention in Los Angeles in ’77. Playing intramural basketball helped him stay in shape for retracting livers and holding femurs in mid-air, so he should have no difficulty with the demands of a surgical residency. Eventually, David hopes to have a private practice, with teaching responsibilities as an accomplished General or Orthopedic Surgeon. JOHN LEONARD FIORE Westchester County Medical Center Internal Medicine Valhalla, New York John earned his B.A. in Biology and graduated magna cum laude from St. Francis College in Loretto, Pa. This native of Westminster spent several summers and vacations working as a lab technician at Carroll County General Hospital before coming to medical school. After a few basic science courses and several months on the wards, he was ready to tackle an externship as a Commissioned Officer in the Public Health Service, working in Surgery and Ophthalmology, in addition to a month spent as a Dermatology extern. (You mean there is a difference between pemphigus and pemphigoid?) John thanks his wife Barbara for helping him through medical school, and plans a residency in Internal Medicine on the Grasslands Reservation, with a private practice of primary care medicine anticipated for the future. 61 BRUCE LEE El S HER Grady Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Atlanta, Georgia This native Baltimorean studied Biology at College Park to earn his B.S. and graduated with high honors before his brother Gary conned him into his mess. Nevertheless, he became an integral member of the car pool gang of Lisberger, Gold, Sirkis, Fisher, Cohen and Cohen. (Misery loves com- pany.) Much of the thanks for his successful completion of medical school belong to his wife Marsha, who provided him with enthusiasm, encouragement, and money. Bruce hopes to return the favor by making it possible for her to retire. Bruce performed preceptorships in Family Practice during the sum- mers of ’75 and ’76, and found diversion in playing tennis and softball. This enthusiast of all professional sports still wonders how he ever managed to survive the class softball games with- out an injury. Bruce is looking forward to earning his first paycheck, becoming Board Certified in Internal Medicine, and eventually having no night call. GREGOR Y HYDE FISHER Montefiore Hospital Internal Medicine Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania After graduating from Georgetown University with a B.S. in Chemistry, Greg journeyed across the ocean to France, where he studied medicine for four years at the University of Amiens. He took advantage of the opportunity to participate in a different way of life, overcoming the difficulties of learn- ing the French customs and language to enjoy the new culture in a strange land. Originally from Rockville, Maryland, he joined us here with a slight French accent in 1976. Although Greg expected medical school to be the end of his learning experience and the beginning of practice and application of knowledge, he now sees it as a primer for future learning. His gratitude goes to his family, friends and wife Donna for their support during his long journey. In the future Greg hopes to earn the respect of his patients and colleagues in the practice of Internal Medicine. 62 MA RIA NNE N. FOTIA DIS University of Maryland Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland This native of Perryville obtained her undergraduate degree from College Park; when she was not involved in her pre- medical studies she became involved in stagecraft, both as a director and a producer. Marianne was a familiar face behind the desk at the OME Media Library during sophomore year, signing out those precious lecture tapes to those of us who always seemed at least one day behind in our studies. She plans to bring cheer and DPT vaccinations to little children, ill and well, in the future. CHARITY CRA VER EOX University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland After obtaining her B.A. in Art at Smith College in 1969, Charity enrolled at Hopkins Medical School, but not to study medicine. Rather, she studied Medical Illustration to earn her M.A. in 1971. In her spare time Charity was manager of the Gilman Hall Coffee Shop on the Homewood campus, and then travelled across town to be an illustrator for our own OME. In 1974 Charity returned to her home state to begin study at the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, and after a year transferred back to Charm City for the remainder of her medical education. In addition to obtaining a Dean’s Fellowship to study the pathology of human renal transplants. Charity put her knowledge and ability to use by doing surgical illustrations for the faculty. The latter provided not only an interesting diversion, but also helped keep food on the table for both herself and her husband, Seth A. Wolfe, Jr. (a Ph.D. in Biology and an immunologist working on corneal trans- plant rejection at the Wilmer Institute). Having completed medical school, Charity is grateful to her parents for keeping her solvent, and to her husband for keeping her sane as well as helping with the housework. In the future she anticipates finally having a steady income, and using part of it to replace her refinished Salvation Army furniture. 63 ANDREW P. FRIDBERG University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Formerly, Andy was President of the Alpha Chi Sigma Pro- fessional Fraternity, a volunteer with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and a member of the Professional Photogra- phers of America. When he left College Park for UMAB, this native of Gaithersburg left all that behind, Andy has done research at the National Institute of Dental Research, at NIH, in Cellular Immunology and Microbiology, resulting in co- authorship of two publications. Throughout college and medi- cal school he has maintained active interest and membership in the American Orchid Society. Having paid for all his edu- cational expenses by working and obtaining loans, Andy is ready to start earning a living and plans to continue his horti- cultural interests. MORRIS FUNK Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A Phi Beta Kappa at Johns Hopkins, Morris hopped across town to pursue his medical studies. He also was active in bio- chemical research at Sinai Hospital before learning to be a doctor, and came closer to that goal by doing a Family Prac- tice preceptorship in the summer of 1975. He is fondly remem- bered by his classmates for managing to read Harrison’s cover-to-cover during his junior clerkship in Medicine, and always trying to get his work done on the wards ASAP so he could go home and see his little Mikey. 64 LOUIS GABALDONI Mount Sinai Hospital Surgery New York, New York Louis attended the University of Massachusetts as an undergraduate before coming to medical school. His travels included a trip to Mexico and back before joining us our jun- ior year. His summer activities consisted of working for the B O Railroad and experience in Family Practice clinic. Track and field, reading, music and art, not necessarily in that order, are his favorite pastimes. He plans to travel to New York for his internship in Surgery, but about a trip back we don’t know. John Crawford, M.D. JA MES DA VI D GA LLA NT Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Jim did not have to travel far to go to medical school, being a native of Charm City, U.S.A. He did brave the cold Cana- dian winds and the blizzards coming off Lake Ontario to attend college at the University of Rochester, where he earned his A.B, in Psychology cum laude. While in medical school he performed a Family Practice preceptorship and a Medical externship at Union Memorial. After a residency in Family Practice in the Baltimore environs, Jim plans to establish a practice in a rural area. 65 PAUL ALAN GERTLER Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Paul is one of seven members of the class who attended the same high school in the Washington suburb of Silver Spring, and distinguished himself by graduating from College Park with high honors and a B.S. in Biochemistry. He is also a musician who became a familiar sight to many of us playing the electric piano for fun and profit in a band that performed at several campus affairs. In the beginning, Paul did not expect medical school to be as much fun as college, and indeed he found that medical school was hardly any fun at all. To relieve the drudgery Paul enjoyed travelling, camping, hik- ing, swimming and jogging, in addition to playing music. He also found time to perform a Family Practice preceptorship. This admirer of J.R.R. Tolkein and Boz Scaggs certainly does not lack dedication, in that his most valuable possession at this point is the knowledge he acquired while in medical school. He looks forward to a career in Internal Medicine and an eventual community practice, and perhaps even a national recording contract. PA UL EDWIN GILLIAM, JR. Kessler Air Force Base Surgery Biloxi, Mississippi The sky’s the limit, and maybe not even that for this avid flyer who hails from Laurel, Maryland. Paul obtained his B.S. degree in pre-med studies from the United States Air Force Academy before joining us for four years of classroom, ward and OR duty. His interest led him to seek out additional expe- rience including a Surgical externship at Wilford Hall, a course in Aerospace Medicine at Brooks AFB, and a course in Sports Medicine at Temple University. While in medical school Paul continued his quest for this world’s exalted heights and unfathomed depths by flying planes and ski kites, spelunking and scuba diving, and then taking part in more mundane activities like snow and water skiing, handball and squash, to bring him back down to earth. He looks forward to the day he will own an acrobatic aircraft and a ski nautique boat, but his immediate plans call for a Surgical internship. After that we might see him as the in-flight surgeon on the Space Shuttle. “Fly and Fight and never forget it.” 66 1 LA URENCE BR UCE GI VNER University of Maryland Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Larry was Phi Beta Kappa at Temple University in Philadelphia where he received his B.A. in Psy- chology. With a little rehearsal and a pipe he convinced us he would have made a fine stand-up comic for his portrayal of Marshall Rennels in the freshman faculty follies. Though his major objection over the last four years was “getting up so darn early in the morning,” apparently Larry became a glut- ton for punishment by doing additional work, including fel- lowships in adult and pediatric nephrology, and an externship in Pediatrics in Cumberland. He also has fond memories of summer trips to the beach with “the boys,” and eventually hopes to enter into the private practice of Pediatrics. ROBERT LOUIS GOLD Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland After graduating from College Park with high honors and a B.S. in Zoology, Bob came back to his hometown to collabo- rate with Dr, Bucci in the Biochemistry department before commencing with his medical studies. He penned an article in the Journal of Biological Chemistry and then got down to real business as a medical student. Bob found time during these past four years for some of his favorite outdoor activities: backpacking, tennis, and cross-country running, and for his wife Kay, who works for Uncle Sam in Washington, D.C. His plans include a residency in Internal Medicine and then a fel- lowship in a Medical subspeciality. 67 SAMUEL T. GOLDBERG University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland Sam karate-kicked his way back to his home town of Balti- more from St. Johns College where he received a cum laude B.A. in Philosophy. Before coming to medical school, Sam worked as a waiter, a book salesman, a gardener, and a coun- selor for juvenile delinquents. He also spent time playing his guitar and perfecting his wicked karate punch (which, inci- dentally, is usually accompanied by Sam’s blood chilling war cry, “Hey man.’’) Once in Maryland medical, Sam’s interests turned to Psychiatry, a field in which he had performed two fellowships. His most memorable experience from the past four years was a mysterious weekend at Joe Indian Lake with various, sundry and assorted folk. His plans for the future include practicing intensive psychotherapy and inpatient psy- chiatric work. EDWARD JAY GOLDMA N Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Ed earned a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Mary- land, graduating with high honors. He used the knowledge he gained in college by working as a Chemist for the FDA for a year before coming to medical school. For his fine efforts, Ed published several articles, one of which earned him a prize from Johns Hopkins. Once in medical school, Ed continued to pursue his scientific interests, performing a Dean’s fellowship and two American Cancer Society fellowships for research in Pharmacology and Ophthalmology. He also auspiciously pur- sued some non-scientific interests, among which he ranks highly his wife Ellen, a nurse, his leatherwork, tennis, and snorkling in Bermuda. Ellen gave him much of the support, encouragement, and happiness he relied upon over the past several years, and from Dr. Richards he obtained an admira- ble model of professional standards and teaching ability. Con- sequently, Ed is planning on performing his residency in Ophthalmology and remains open-minded regarding any- thing in the more distant future. 68 CAROL MARIE GONZALEZ University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Carol graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Zoology, high honors, and membership in Phi Kappa Phi. Both before and during her medical education, Carol was fortunate to have participated in scientific research at NIH. While in medical school, Carol exhibited the academic excel- lence that earns one the recognition of being elected to mem- bership in A.O.A. With energy, initiative, and civic spirit, Carol entered in a homesteading project in Baltimore city. Carol’s plans for the immediate future include an Ob-Gyn residency at the University of Maryland. Hopes for the more distant future might entail academic medicine, or perhaps a group practice.. MICHAEL DA VI D GOTTS University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland This native of Silver Spring studied English at Yale Univer- sity, and when he departed for a summer of European travel in 1974, he took along a Phi Beta Kappa key, and a summa cum laude B.A. degree with Departmental Honors in English. Refreshed, relaxed, and eager to learn after his summer abroad, Mike set upon his medical studies with a singular per- spective, purposeful, thoughtful reasoning, and a keen wit; he often drew upon his bountiful reserve of quotations from the English literature to amuse, enrich, and enlighten his fellow classmates. A member of the Psych track, Mike found that the CAPP activities not only made the study of medicine more interesting, but they also helped him realize his future plans. In fact, Mike has been a candidate of the Baltimore-Washing- ton Institute for Psychoanalysis since the sophomore year (at which time he was one of the youngest candidates ever accepted). Needless to say, Mike plans to continue in Psychi- atry after completing an interval of training in Medicine, and eventually looks forward to finding his freedom. “These fragments I have shored against my ruins.” T. S. Elliot, “The Wasteland” 69 CYNTHIA LEIGH GRA VES Medical University of South Carolina Pediatrics Charleston, South Carolina Cyndi is a Biology-Chemistry cum laude graduate of Union College of Kentucky, who after completing both high school and college with all due speed, spent an interesting, demand- ing, and practical year developing a screening laboratory in a busy Pediatric practice. She also served as a volunteer in the Georgetown Hospital E.R., and travelled to the Bahamas and Costa Rica before settling down to four years of hard work. In addition to her regular studies, Cyndi participated in the Psych Track, worked in the Tuerk House, and read Dostoyev- ski while in medical school. In the midst of all this bustle, this equestrienne managed to buy a horse who shortly thereafter and much to Cyndi’s surprise, became a mother. Her success- ful completion of medical school is attributed to the encour- agement and support of Alex and her family, and also her classmates who shared her many memorable experiences. Among these she particulary recalls at least two cardiac arrests every night on-call in Jr. Medicine, and three simulta- neous emergency C-sections on OB. Her plans for the future include a residency in Pediatrics, with the hope of establishing a rural Pediatric practice and having a horse farm with a few dogs and some kids, too. PHYLLIS LOUISE GREENWALD University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland Phyllis came to medical school from College Park where she obtained her B.S. degree in Zoology. She performed basic science research in pharmacology, in addition to her medical school work, and was a member of the Woodbourne Chapter of the Society of I STS. Phyllis has no idea what she might be doing ten years from now, but for the time being she plans a residency in Psychiatry. 70 RICH A RD ALAN GR UEN Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Surgery Baltimore, Maryland A native of Rockville, Richard did his college work at Col- lege Park, where he graduated with a B.S. and a major in Bio- chemistry. He joined our class in 1976 after spending two years at the Universidad de Monterrey in Mexico. His sum- mers and other vacation time were constructively put to use by working in the Clinical Pathology department of NIH. Though his parents and friends played a large part in his suc- cessful completion of medical school, Richard was reminded that this endeavor was, above all, his idea. He is non-specific about his future professional plans; regardless, he does look forward to maintaining his sanity and sense of personal worth wherever life takes him. RICHARD H. HALLOCK Hershey Medical Center Surgery Hershey, Pennsylvania Rick spent his undergraduate years in the rolling, pastoral hills of Virginia, majoring in Biology at the University of Vir- ginia and graduating with a B.A. degree and a Phi Beta Kappa key. Realizing that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” Rick participated in the class softball and basket- ball games and played squash for recreation, in addition to performing a Dean’s fellowship. Inspired by Dr. Mason, this A.O.A. member started on a Surgical road which leads him to chocolate country next year, and may possibly lead to Plastics in the future. 71 DA VI D JOSEPH HA R TIG Hershey Medical Center Family Practice Hershey, Pennsylvania Dave attended Loyola College in Baltimore, earning a B.S. degree and distinguishing himself as a Biology Departmental Scholar and by election to the Tri Beta Society. He handled the academic intensity of the freshman and sophomore years of medical school and the amount of responsibility suddenly thrust upon him during the apprenticeship years quite well, preserving fond memories of the Pathology practical exams and of his first delivery. He is grateful to his Dad for his con- tinual encouragement along with much needed financial and moral support, and for urging him to use his freedom to go any direction he desired. When that direction is not towards studying, Dave enjoys tennis, playing percussion instruments, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Dave plans to continue through three years of Family Practice training at Hershey before joining a group practice of family and community medicine somewhere in the East. BLASE HARRIS South Baltimore General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly dis- cerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody’s expense but his own. However, nothing dispirits and nothing seems worthwhile disputing: He bolts down all events, all creeds, all beliefs, and persuasions, all hard things visible and invisible, never mind how knobby; as an ostrich of potent digestion gobbles down bullets and gunflints, and as for small difficulties and worryings, prospects of sudden disaster, peril of life and limb; all these, and death itself, seem to him only sly, good-natured hits, and jolly punches in the side bestowed by the unseen and unaccountable old joker.” Moby Dick, Herman Melville Blase, who is currently writing his own novel, plans a career in Emergency Medicine. 72 PA TRICIA JEANNE HEBBARD St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center Flexible New York, New York Pat is a B.A. graduate of Sarah Lawrence College in Bronx- ville, N.Y. While in medical school she performed Dean’s fel- lowship work in Pediatric Immunology, and in the Pediatric Exceptional Child Clinic, yet this is no indication that Pedia- trics is where her career interests lie. Pat learned from working with the housestaff on her rotations that Medicine is interest- ing, thought provoking and amusing, and she will be taking this attitude to the wards in Greenwich Village next year, with an eye toward going into Internal Medicine or primary care in the future. This setting may well provide the opportunity for some of her favorite activities: spending time with friends, seeing films, listening to classical music and enjoying the out- doors during nice weather. W I ELIA M L UKE HIGGINS Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Bill occupied himself with quite an assortment of activities over the past four years, after having been gently pushed into this “rocket” by his father. He came to medical school from King’s College in Wilkes Barre, Pennyslvania, where he earned his B.S. and majored in Biology. A painter, naturalist, and amateur geologist, he managed to keep these interests and his rock collection alive even during his more harried rota- tions. Bill also did research in Neuropathology; sponsored by a Dean’s fellowship, he pursued an investigation into the aging process of the human leptomeninges. Encouragement and support from Marion, his wife, a junior high school teacher and future mother, helped Bill glide over the rough spots of medical education. Bill wants eventually to be, as he puts it, a simple country doctor, the kind of doctor who helps people as they live and comforts them as they die. 73 JAY HIMMELSTEIN Eastern Maine Medical Center Family Practice Bangor, Maine Jay came back to his hometown to complete his B.A. degree at Johns Hopkins, having gained distinction as a National Harvard Scholar at Harvard College. When not engaged in the academic rigor of medical studies, Jay was busy perform- ing and writing music for the guitar and was well known and appreciated by his fellow students as a leather craftsman. In fact, he had his own shop called, “Jason’s Fleece.” The moun- tains are his friends, as attested to by his often going canoeing and hiking in the wilds. For his successful completion of med- ical school he is indebted to Paul Fiset, Murray the K., Frank Calia, “Roons” for his tunes, and Boltansky (the Flash) for keeping him awake the night before exams. His ambition is to sell peanut butter sandwiches from a cave somewhere in the Southwest, and he might even try being a family doctor for a while. “The only sin is self-hatred.” CHARLENE ERANCES HORAN West Virginia University Hospital Internal Medicine Morgantown, West Virginia Charlene attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and New York University, where she earned her B.A. in English Literature. During her four years in Baltimore she contributed much of her spare time to the Peoples Free Medical Clinic, and in addition performed a Dean’s fellowship in the summer of 1976. Charlene has been quite prolific and has several arti- cles to her credit in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta and other prestigious journals, on such diverse and esoteric topics as Phosphorylase b, trypsin. Amphotericin B and lima beans. In spite of her numerous achievements, she would never have gotten through medical school had not her housemates been able to walk her dog. She looks forward to a career in Internal Medicine and owning a goat. 74 MICHAEL J. ICHNIOWSKI University of Maryland Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland After obtaining his B.A. degree in Biology from New York University, Ich decided to take four years off and go to medi- cal school in Baltimore to further his general education before going back and trying out for the New York Knicks. In addi- tion to his regular studies, which he obviously excelled at, being voted into that All-Star Team of medical school called “A.O.A.,” Ich performed a fellowship in Social and Preven- tive Medicine and an externship in Medicine at Union Memo- rial. He was as much at home on the basketball court and the softball field as in the classroom or on the wards, and his clutch play enabled the class team to win a few. In spite of all the pressures of medical school his most stressful moment c ame when he sank a 20-foot jump shot at the buzzer to win a game. For those who never saw Ich on the court, he was also familiar to some as Woody Allen at a Halloween party and as Mick Jagger at the banquet. His plans for the future include a private practice in Pediatrics or becoming team physician for a certain second-class basketball team in New York, looking forward to possessing health, happiness, and an official all- leather NBA basketball. “You can’t always get what you want . . .” SANDRA SCHWARTZ ISBISTER George Washington University Hospital Radiology Washington, D.C. There is really no hometown for Sandie, who, by virtue of the fact that her father was in the foreign service, has lived in Germany, Austria, the Caribbean, and Zaire. She attended college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she majored in Physical Therapy and graduated with a B.S. with honors. Mating fruitflies became her passion, as she taught Genetics labs for a year before starting medical school in Bal- timore. While in medical school Sandie stayed awake during long hours of lecture by knitting, but when not in medical school she kept herself busy programming computer lessons on Plato for Pharmacology, doing admission histories and physicals on patients admitted to Harbor View Nursing Home (which proves that they must get septic while they’re there) and performing an externship in Medicine at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital at Wyman Park. Sometime during all this professional activity she met and married John, a 1977 graduate of our Law School, which is certainly better than having to retain one. Sandie plans a career in Radiology along with living in a restored 19th century farmhouse, to be filled with antiques, kids, and a German Shepherd. 75 MARIE THERESEJACCARD A native of Silver Spring, Tish attended the American Uni- versity in Washington, D.C. where she majored in Biology and graduated cum laude in 1971. She taught junior high school for the intervening three years before starting medical school. While pursuing her medical studies she developed and fostered an interest in Ob-Gyn, performing a Dean’s fellow- ship in Social and Preventive Medicine studying the Lamaze Method of childbirth. In fact, her most memorable experience over the past four years came when she accurately diagnosed a prolapsed umbilical cord. When not engaged in professional activities, Tish relaxed by going camping, painting, and motorcycling. She graduates with the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that she had given it her best, and plans to work for the FDA for a year after graduation, fol- lowed by fulfillment of her military obligation. For residency training, she is leaning towards further study in female Endo- crinology and infertility. STUART L JACOBS Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland While growing up in Baltimore, it seems Stuart forgot to pull his foot out of the concrete before it hardened. But for a sailor and photography buff, what an appropriate place to get stuck. After serving time at College Park, committed to the study of Psychology, he graduated with high hours, and a B.S. degree. Then Stuart escaped for a year to impersonate a chemistry technician at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, before being apprehended and enrolled at the University of Maryland for four years of hard labor. We still don’t think the world is ready for Stuart, so he is being sent up for another three years, to be accompanied by his supporting wife Nadine. Perhaps they will have Mercy on him and set him free after that. 76 CRA IG A R THUR JESCHKE Harrisburg Hospital Internal Medicine Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Although Craig grew up and attended college (UMBC, 1974, B.A. in Biology) in Baltimore, he is a country man at heart. When not engaged in the rigors of medical education, CJ enjoys goose hunting, fishing, bird watching, carving, and mineral collecting. In fact, he hopes to set up a primary care Internal Medicine practice on the Eastern Shore or in West- ern Maryland, where he can have easy access to good hunting and fishing. In addition to passing the first Anatomy exam, Craig fondly remembers sitting on the beach fishing for sea monsters and drinking martinis with Ed, and doing Medicine with George Drusano. Now that it’s over, Craig is thankful that his wife Terry, an administrative assistant at the First National Bank, managed to stick it out with him, and in the future he hopes to have socks without holes. “Don’t let that little red bug catch you napping.” T.E.W. BARRY JOSEPHS University Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Barry did his undergraduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Biology and graduating cum laude. At first he expected medical school would be time consuming, but never realized how much so. In spite of this he found time to work in some of his favorite pastimes, especially squash and tennis. He survived the Pathology practical exams and other assorted academic hurdles in good enough shape to be elected a member of AOA. Barry looks forward to living in Boston with Alex and Jonny during his internship in Internal Medicine. 77 DANIEL T. KAO Cabrini Health Care Center Internal Medicine New York, New York Daniel graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1973 with a B.A. in Molecular Biology. He entered medical school in Guadalajara in 1973, but transferred back to Maryland for his clinical years. His training in Mexico at Guadalajara and at the Kino Clinic in Talaquepaque, enabling him to experi- ence part of the Mexican culture while in school, made a dis- tinct and lasting impression on him. He hopes to call on this awareness and multi-cultural background in working with the Spanish or Asian communities of New York, where he will be doing his postgraduate work in the Cabrini Health Care Cen- ter, Columbus Hospital Division. DA VI D E. KELLEY University of Oregon Surgery Portland, Oregon Having found medical education not nearly as much fun as he might have wished, David wishes above all to thank his family for their support and his friends for trying to balance the work with fun. He is a cum laude graduate of Princeton University, where he studied History to earn his B.A. in 1974. After completing a Dean’s fellowship in 1975, he spent the remainder of the summer camping his way cross-country with friends. By the time David completes his Surgical training at the University of Oregon Health Sciences Center, all this will be history, too. 78 JANICE MARIE CRINER KELLEY A native of Athens, Texas, Janice studied Biology at Prairie View University in Texas to obtain her B.S. and graduate summa cum laude in 1968. Two years later she earned a Mas- ter of Science degree in Biology from Wayne State University. During her years with us, Janice astonished her classmates by having two children, Lauren and Natalie, whose activities now consist of playing, playing, playing and playing. Another significant, albeit seemingly unrelated accomplishment, was publishing a pharmacologic paper on DL-Alanosine at NIH in 1976. Janice modestly credits her husband Danny, who holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Peabody Conservatory, with helping to produce her babies, and for helping her complete medical school by his ever-ready kind- ness and understanding, as reflected in his apt advice, “If the world hands you lemons, make lemonade!” Janice plans to return to the Lone Star State for a primary care internship in Houston, followed by — who knows! ! JA NET LOUISE KENNED Y York Hospital Flexible York, Pennsylvania While Jan hails from South Bend, Indiana, she studied Nat- ural Sciences at Johns Hopkins for her B.A. before moving downtown for her medical training. She certainly kept herself busy during school, first as vice-president of the Freshman class, then by doing two Dean’s fellowships in Biochemistry with Dr. Waechter, and by performing a third fellowship in Ob-Gyn at Baltimore City Hospital. Lest this not be enough, Jan is also credited with two publications in the Journal of Bacteriology, and has worked for three years at the Peoples’ Free Medical Clinic as advocate, women’s counselor, and lab technician. Though obviously she has gained much experience already, Jan plans to broaden her horizons with a rotating internship before settling down to a career in Ob-Gyn, and looks forward to having perhaps a faculty position in Ob-Gyn, a sailboat, cross-country skis, and a washer-dryer in the not- too-distant future. 79 HERMAN A. KEN SKY ELIZA BETH MARY KING SEE Y Veterans Administrative Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Being born on Independence day apparently gave Liz extraordinary impetus, as she has been igniting sparks ever since. In 1969 she burst over to Brazil for a year as an Ameri- can Field Service scholar. Then she brightened up the pages of Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities while studying Chemistry at Goucher College for her B.A. After a year of graduate study in Molecular Biology and Physiologi- cal Chemistry at Johns Hopkins, Liz flashed down to George Washington University to begin her medical studies and returned to Baltimore yet again, to join our class sophomore year. In addition to working at the National Cancer Institute of NIH, she has co-authored numerous publications in Bio- chemical and Biophysical journals and worked as an extern in Family Practice and Medicine. When the sparkles overheat, Liz cools off with swimming and cross-country skiing, and spends time refinishing her antique collection and practicing ballet. She plans to rocket up to Boston with her husband, a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Physiological Chemistry, who somehow managed to put up with her ebullient efferves- cence during medical school, and looks forward to having a happy family life, travelling, and possibly doing an Oncology fellowship. After obtaining his B.S. in Chemistry from Ursirus College in Pennsylvania, this native of Norristown, Pa., studied Medi- cal Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania for his M.A. degree. Herman joined us at the University of Maryland after beginning his medical training at Guadalajara and is grateful for his wife’s support in helping him complete medical school. A NNA MA RIE KL UMPP South Baltimore General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland After graduating summa cum laude with a major in Biology from Towson State College, Anna spent the summer prior to medical school with Dr. Ludlum in the Pharmacology lab. In addition to the regular medical curriculum, Anna was a mem- ber of the Psychiatry Tracking program, but in spite of this heavy involvement in medical studies, she had little difficulty finding time to ride her horse, see her fiance Robert, and relax with her needlework. Anna survived medical school with the encouragement and support of her family, and indeed often- times found it enjoyable on account of her participation in CAPP activities. After completing a Medical internship, Anna will study Psychiatry preparatory to practice in association with a community mental health organization. STEWART L. KOEHLER University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland What would Stew be doing with an “Ich” on one shoulder and a “Chip” on the other? Playing on the class basketball team, of course. That would have been good material for Stewart’s specialty of compare and contrast, which he learned to do while studying English for his B.A. from Georgetown University. In addition to basketball and softball, Stewart played around with Dean’s fellowship research during the summers of 1975 and 1976. As a result, he presented a paper on Student Research Day, 1977, and has submitted an article for publication. Along with being a Surgeon, Stewart thinks perhaps he’d like to be the owner of the downtown Crease in the future. 81 LEO KOROTKI Leo is a graduate of Washington University who enjoyed travelling to England and Israel during some free time he found while in medical school. As of this writing, Leo was not sure what specialty he wanted to study. DOUGLAS L. KOZLOWSKI Wilmington Medical Center Surgery Wilmington, Delaware A native of Cambridge, Maryland, Doug came to the Uni- versity of Maryland after receiving his B.S. in Chemistry at North Carolina Wesleyan College, and his M.A. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina. He has kept himself busy during his medical school years but found time to fit as much tennis and skiing as possible into his schedule. Doug was equally attracted to many specialities in medicine, but after much consideration has decided to do a Surgical intern- ship next year. 82 PA MELA GRA CE KRA HL Naval Regional Medical Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Oakland, California Pam came to medical school from Southampton College of Long Island University where she graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Biology. She has described her medical school experience as an intense, growth producing experience through the effort she put forth herself and through her inter- actions with patients and friends during these four years. Her participation in the Naval Health Professions Scholarship Program allowed her the opportunity to travel while gaining greater medical experience, as she performed her active duty work at Naval hospitals in Pensacola, Florida and Oakland, California. She has particularly fond memories of backpack- ing in the Rockies for Christmas, and during the past four years has managed to find time for sailing, swimming, and cross-country skiing as well. Pam is grateful to Barb Loe- vinger, Bob Grantham, and Vernon E. Krahl for direction, guidance, instilling a sense of self-confidence and preserving her sanity. Pam plans to do her residency in Ob-Gyn, and looks forward to practice in a small town somewhere in New England or the Northwest. MARTIN HARRIS KROLL University of Maryland Pathology Baltimore, Maryland Martin completed his undergraduate work at the University of Maryland, College Park, receiving a B.S. with honors in Chemistry. Before starting medical school he worked for the EPA in Washington, D.C. During his years at Maryland med- ical Martin published an article in the Jou rnal of Neurochemis- try and worked on programs for Plato, the computer assisted medical teaching program. In his free time he pursued inter- ests in music, the piano, reading and tennis, and particularly enjoyed relaxing with Nietzsche and “Sonata Pathetique” by Beethoven. Martin plans to stay at the University of Mary- land doing his residency in Pathology, and looks forward to a position someday as a staff pathologist at a community hospi- tal. ft:? RICHARD SETH LAPIN SKY Maimonides Medical Center Medicine Brooklyn, New York Richard has had a diverse, interesting, and satisfying medi- cal school experience, beginning his training at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium and transferring to the University of Maryland during his junior year. He completed his under- graduate work in Biology, receiving his B.A. from Colgate University in upstate New York. During his medical school years his active outside interests have included reading, pho- tography, and the cinema. Richard will be doing his residency in Internal Medicine and in the future looks forward to being healthy, satisfied, and practicing Medicine. ALAN JAY LEVIN Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Alan began his medical training with the view point that he didn’t really belong in medical school, perhaps something many medical students experience. Unlike most, however, Alan, a member of the International Brother- hood of Magicians, took a year’s leave of absence to confront his resistance to becoming a physician. This time was gain- fully spent in Las Vegas where he honed his skills as an expert magician, gambler and blackjack dealer, and cavorted with some of the world’s finest magicians. Having finally realized that he actually did belong in medical school, Alan returned to join the Class of ’78 a nd complete his transition. Aside from magic, Alan studied Zoology at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor to receive his B.S. Rather than pull a disappearing act, Alan will stay in town for a Medical internship, possibly followed by a career in Emergency Medicine or Family Prac- tice. 84 STEPHEN DA VI D LIN DEN BA UM Grady Memorial Hospital Surgery Atlanta, Georgia Stephen received a Pharmacy degree from the University of Maryland in 1972, then worked as a retail pharmacist for a couple of years. He began his medical studies at the Universi- dad Autonoma de Guadalajara in 1974, where he spent many hours studying medicine, the people of Mexico, and contem- plating Montezuma’s revenge, and transferred into our class in 1976. While in medical school, Stephen appreciated the support of his wife Marilyn, who not only helped out by com- pleting her husband’s freshman anatomy coloring book, but also sacrificed her own career during the past four years. He would escape the madness of medical school by playing tennis and taking long rides into the country. Stephen’s most memo- rable experience was getting through Junior Medicine without Dr. Woodward realizing that he had transferred from the Guad. Having originally anticipated a mystical environment populated by the intellectually gifted, Stephen now allows himself a moment of uncharacteristic cynicism when he described med. school as an environment harboring the atti- tude “if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.” He hopes to finish his training before becoming eligible for Social Security and eventually to practice Orthopedics in a small town, where he would like to be con- sidered a true asset to the community both as an individual and a professional.

As an undergraduate, she had majored in Premed and received her B.A. degree with honors. During medical school, she kept herself busy by work- ing on the blood drawing team, in the hematology lab and in BCRC. She did a Family Practice preceptorship one summer, and also studied Herpes Type II with the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine as part of a Dean’s fellow- ship. She rounded out her medical school experience as an extern in Medicine and Surgery at Maryland General Hospi- tal during the Spring of 1978. Besides lots of close friends, a house in the good old country air, and a car that runs smoothly all the time, Jing has no precise outline for her future. She will perform a residency in Internal Medicine and perhaps find a career in Hematology Oncology, but whi- chever way she decides to go, she hopes to be happy, settled, and secure. MARK DA VI D LISBERGER Jacksonville Educational Program Internal Medicine Jacksonville, Florida Mark majored in Zoology at College Park and graduated in 1974 with a B.S. degree. Being accepted into medical school constituted the most significant event in his life over the past several years, and he celebrated by backpacking in Europe during the summer of 1974. Returning to Baltimore, he expected that medical school would be enjoyable and would provide each student with a lot of individual attention. To his dismay, not only were the first two years not exactly enjoya- ble, but rather more on the order of an endurance test. For diversion, Mark played softball for the class team and per- formed a Family Practice preceptorship one summer. Thanks to his carpool colleagues (“misery likes company”) Mark was able to survive the ordeal, although he still finds it tough to look in the mirror after a night on call. In addition to a private practice as an internist, Mark looks forward to possessing his own pinball machine. “Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.” Will Rogers ' mm. 86 THOMAS E. LONG San Joaquin General Hospital Flexible Stockton, California A native of Anaheim, California, Tom received his B.A. in 1970 from California State University at Fullerton, having majored in Anthropology. He then journeyed to Mexico where he was able to broaden his knowledge of mankind while initiating his medical studies. After joining us in Mary- land in 1975, Tom continued his medical training while taking time to enjoy outdoor activities and sports. He appreciates the encouragement he received from his parents and in-laws, which made this journey more tolerable. Tom had a fantasy that he was going to do a rotating internship, but here’s news — it’s no fantasy! NANCY T. LORD Washington Hospital Center Pathology Washington, D.C. After graduating from the University of Maryland College Park with a cum laude B.S. degree in Chemistry and a Phi Beta Kappa key, Nancy spent a year working as a legal secre- tary, as a market research associate in Real Estate, and as a cocktail waitress. If that wasn’t enough she also travelled to Europe, Martinique and the Northeastern U.S. When in med- ical school she caught everyone’s attention by arriving five minutes late for classes which, by itself, was not that unusual, but Nancy was unique in that she would routinely parade across the front of the classroom to take her seat. Indeed, uni- que is probably the best word in the English language to describe Nancy Lord. In addition to spending two years in the CAPP program, she performed a Dean’s fellowship, travelled to Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Fran- cisco, Virginia Beach and Ocean City, and enjoyed painting, photography, music, art galleries, restaurants, movies, plays, books and writing while in med. school. Of all these activities, Nancy’s most memorable experience was the month she spent in San Francisco on a Pathology elective. Having finally achieved a balance between her career and personal life, Nancy was prepared to study Clinical Chemistry at Washing- ton Hospital Center. In the future she looks forward to own- ing and operating her own clinical laboratory, and having a Silver Rolls Royce. 87 ROBERT W. MACHT Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Bob was a Dean’s List student at Boston University where he majored in Chemistry. Before returning to his hometown of Baltimore for the start of classes. Bob travelled throughout Europe, staying overnight in campgrounds. During medical school his wife supported him through the rough spots, and his father played the largest role in Bob’s professional devel- opment. When not immersed in academia. Bob enjoyed music and playing on the class softball team, but the incident he will never forget was the time Jay Prensky straightened Dr. Eylar’s hair at Jonny Edlow’s request. Having finished at last. Bob looks forward to having a license to practice medicine and a General Surgical private practice in the Baltimore area. MIC HA EL NEA L MA CKLIN North Carolina Memorial Hospital Psychiatry Chapel Hill, North Carolina After studying Psychology at College Park to earn his B.S. degree and graduating with high honors, Mike left his home- town of Rockville to come to medical school. In addition to working on the blood drawing team for two years, and per- forming an externship in Medicine at Union Memorial, Mike went hiking and biking, or listened to Beethoven, whenever the time would permit. While watching Dr. Lisansky interview one of his patients, Mike began to realize what a doctor- patient relationship can hold for both, and subsequently decided to do his postgraduate training in Psychiatry. He is grateful to his family for standing by him when needed and, in the future, expects to be practicing group and individual psy- chotherapy with his own self-knowledge and self-esteem intact. 88 DEBORA H J UNE MA R TIN York Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology York, Pennsylvania Debbie completed her first two years of undergraduate work at Western Maryland College and her last two years at Loyola College, from which she received a B.S. degree in Biol- ogy. Before she embarked on the long, uphill course of study in medical school she was active as a Girl Scout leader and as a church-camp counselor for three summers. Her medical school years were busy, as along with her regular course work she was recording secretary for the SNMA during sophomore year and was also able to take time to show her Newfound- land “Nico” in Obedience classes at area dog shows. Debbie hopes to do her residency in Ob-Gyn, and in the future sees herself concentrating on adolescent patients. PHILIP NOR WOOD MA SSE Y University of Virginia Hospitals Internal Medicine Charlottesville, Virginia Phil came to medical school from Georgetown University, where he received his B.S. in Biology. Four years later he aus- piciously completed his medical school career, being elected to A.O.A., and in the meantime had performed an externship in Internal Medicine at Bethesda Naval Hospital, along with his regular course work. It must have seemed ironic to Phil that during the summer of 1974, as the Watergate was making history, he was employed by the U.S. Labor Department in a capacity to tear up and destroy mounds of bureaucratic paperwork, and then went on to amass piles of lecture notes during the first two years of medical school. Phil takes time to get away from the harried schedule of the medical student to engage in his favorite sports: tennis, basketball, and softball, and is grateful to his parents for supporting him and his medi- cal studies every grade of the way without asking anything from him in return except for his happiness. 89 GREGOR Y DON McCORMA CK Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Greg, a product of Ellicott City, did his undergraduate work in Baltimore, receiving a B.S. in Biology from Loyola College where he earned the distinction of being elected to the Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society. He took advantage of his four years at the University of Maryland, completing two Dean’s fellowships with the Department of Social and Preven- tive Medicine, In his spare time, Greg enjoys all types of sports, playing the guitar, woodworking, and working on his sailboat. He plans to stay in Baltimore for his residency in Internal Medicine and is looking forward to his upcoming marriage to Maiy Beth Emory of Centreville, Md., after grad- uation. MICHAEL GRAY McCALLEY Irvine Medical Center Radiology Orange, California Mike has the distinction of being one of the members of the class who completed their undergraduate work at one of the service academies, but is unique in that he had already ful- filled his service commitment and left a successful career in Physics to come to medical school. He received his B.S. in Physics from the U.S. Air Force Academy and went on to earn a Master’s degree in Physics at Ohio State. During his four years in medical school Mike performed a Dean’s fellow- ship, co-authored a paper on emitted potentials, travelled and camped from Maine to Daytona Beach, and pursued his inter- ests in sailing and waterskiing with his wife, Lori, whom he met on the slopes at Aspen and who worked as an architect to support and feed a hungry husband. It must have come as a shock to him to find that intern’s hours weren’t only worked by interns, and although he thinks he’s getting too old for this, Mike is nevertheless looking forward to his residency at the Univers ity of California in Diagnostic Radiology. 90 ANDREW RICHARD McCULLOUGH Shands Teaching Hospital and Clinics Surgery Gainesville, Florida Better known as Radar, Andy claims Orleans, France as his hometown, and has had a broad scope of interests. He has lived in Europe for fifteen years, attended several music con- servatories, played violin and clarinet in numerous amateur and semi-pro groups, and earned a brown belt in Judo. He studied Biophysics and Natural Science for his B.A. at Johns Hopkins, and spent two and one-half years trying to crystal- lize peanut hemoglobin at the Johns’ Biophysics lab. For their unlimited dedication, sacrifice and patience. Radar is grateful to his parents, and for infinite moral support he turns to his wife, a graduate of the Maryland School of Nursing. In addi- tion to fishing, camping, tubing down the Gunpowder, squash, and more squash, Andy made a hobby of avoiding rotations at University Hospital. For penitence he ended up doing three months at the V.A. his senior year. After two years of a General Surgery residency. Radar plans to subspe- cialize in Urology, and after that to resume fishing, camping, tubing down the Gunpowder, squash and more squash. JOHN R. Me LEAN Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center Internal Medicine Bexar, Texas For two years “Disco Jack’’ was a service manager for an outfit installing car stereos and air conditioners, and spent two summers working for BG E, before deciding to become a doctor. He obtained his B.S. in Biology from Loyola College in 1974, graduating magna cum laude. During the four years of medical school. Jack was able to put in some time working at the Hospital’s Clinical Lab, and performed externships at Union Memorial Hospital in Medicine and Surgery. Jack would like to take this opportunity to thank the Air Force for allowing him to keep the University bookstore in business. At times it became burdensome to not only have to learn medi- cine, but also to consult with Gerry F. and Jimmy C. concern- ing world defense matters. Even so. Jack managed to arrange some spare time to indulge in golf, tennis, softball, fishing and music. During his residency at the Lackland Air Force Base, the “Commander’s” main mission will be “to keep the pilots flying and keep the birds in the air,” but he also hopes to do some recruiting for the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. “Is it Saturday yet?” 91 PA TRICK GEORGE Me MEN A MIN Pat was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and graduated from the University of Maryland College Park, where he studied Zool- ogy to earn his B.S. with high honors. He plans a career of academic Otorhinolaryngology, and hopes to live life as he experiences it. STEPHEN A LLA N METZ National Naval Medical Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Bethesda, Maryland Stephen studied Metallurgy at M.I.T. to earn both member- ship in Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honorary Society and an S.B. degree. He then stayed on for his graduate work at M.I.T., receiving a Ph.D. in Materials Science in 1970. After serving as a U.S. Naval officer and research scientist working with laser-materials interactions, Steve came to Baltimore for his medical training. During these last four years, he participated in the Pediatric tracking program, served as senior class trea- surer, and was President of A.O.A. He is married to Sandra Metz, a law student, teacher, and mother to their sons Jason, Drew and Jonathan. Stephen anticipates a career in Gyneco- logic Oncology and if his past performance is any indication, he should do quite well. 92 JEFFREY GUY MIDDLETON Ochsner Foundation Hospital Internal Medicine New Orleans, Louisiana After attending Western Maryland College for three years, where he majored in Chemistry and Biology and was elected a member of the Argonauts and Tri-Beta, Jeff was fortunate enough to be accepted to medical school without having obtained a college diploma. In fact, he received his B.A. degree a mere five days before receiving his M.D. As a college sophomore he went on a camera safari to Kenya and later enjoyed rebuilding heavy-duty trucks in his uncle’s truck shop during the first few summers of medical school, after which he concluded that there’s nothing like grease and oil to make one appreciate the finer things in life. He also found the time to perform a Family Practice elective, having excelled in his reg- ular medical studies as evidenced by his election to A.O.A. As he departs for New Orleans and three years of training in Internal Medicine, Jeff takes with him many fond memories, including the times he kept transit buses from running down Sister Susan. Jeff looks forward to a happy, healthy life, and a Dermatology practice in Baltimore in the future. SUSAN MILLER PA ULSON Case Western Reserve University Hospital Internal Medicine Cleveland, Ohio Choose Something Like a Star O Star (the fairest one in sight). We grant your loftiness the right To some obscurity of cloud — It will not do to say of night. Since dark is what brings out your light. Some mystery becomes the proud. But to be wholly taciturn In your reserve is not allowed. Say something to us we can learn By heart and when alone repeat. Say something! And it says “I burn.” But say with what degree of heat. Talk Fahrenheit, talk Centigrade. Use language we can comprehend. Tell us what elements you blend. It gives us strangely little aid. But does tell something in the end. And steadfast as Keats’ Eremite, Not even stooping from its sphere. It asks of us a certain height. So when at times the mob is swayed To carry praise or blame too far. We may choose something like a star To stay our minds on and be staid, by Robert Frost 93 DA VI D ALAN MISHKIN Baltimore City Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland David is a native of Baltimore who escaped to Durham, North Carolina, where he studied Chemistry at Duke Univer- sity for his A.B. degree. He then journeyed to the Far Eastern University for his first two years of medical training, which gave him an opportunity to travel to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Manila, and Israel, and returned to his hometown in 1976. Expecting to find hard work requiring a great commitment of time and energy, he found the patient responsibility given to students at Maryland a bit more than he had anticipated, and as he handled this it proved to be a tremendous learning expe- rience. David did additional work in Endocrinology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute, and enjoyed relaxing to Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence.” In years to come David plans to practice clinical Medicine, and is not adverse to subspecializing. HARVEY STUART MISHNER Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Harvey obtained his B.S, in Zoology at College Park, tra- velled cross country and to Canada, and spent a summer doing Biochemical research at Rush-St. Luke’s Presbyterian Medical Center in Chicago before returning to his hometown to attend medical school. Of the four years spent here, Harvey has little to say besides thanking his wife Janet for spending many lonely nights during the clinical years without ever com- plaining. In the years ahead he plans to establish a private practice in Internal Medicine somewhere in Maryland. 94 DEBORA H JANET MONK University of Hawaii Internal Medicine Honolulu, Hawaii Coming to us from Sparrows Point High School, where she taught biology for two years, Debbie proved herself to be one of the nicest persons a body could ever hope to meet. Always eager to help out, Debbie spent a great deal of time working for our class and the school, first as a representative to the School of Medicine Council and later, during her junior and senior years, as editor of The Aesclepian. Originally from Frederick, Debbie attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where she obtained her B.S. magna cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. During medical school she spent some of her remaining spare time participating in U.S. Naval Reserve clinical clerkships in Bethesda and Jack- sonville. But her attachment to this distinguished branch of our armed services goes much deeper than this mere profes- sional concern as she has tied the Naval knot with her hand- some Navy pilot named Chuck, and is travelling with him to Hawaii. Aloha! ELIZABETH GILFILLIAN MOSLEY Naval Regional Medical Center Flexible San Diego, California Beth proved she was tough by occupying herself during her summers off from college pumping gas and operating a car wash. She attended Beaver College in Glenside, Pennsylvania, where she was an honors student and majored in Biology, graduating with a B.A. She returned to her hometown to attend medical school, performed three Family Practice pre- ceptorships and served as President of the Family Practice Club. Her husband Coleman is a 1977 graduate of the School of Medicine who shared Beth’s depression and disillusion- ments from his own experience, being able to prevent too much discouragement. After all, if he could do it, so could she. Her most memorable experience was working as a junior on Medicine, while Coleman was a senior on the same floor. An avid squash player and a tinker at the piano, Beth joined the Navy to do a residency in Medicine. In ten years, if she’s finished her Naval tour of duty, she hopes to settle down to a rural private practice of general Medicine. 95 PATRICK F. MULROY Medical College of Wisconsin Internal Medicine Milwaukee, Wisconsin Pat hails from Chicago, and attended the University of Illi- nois at Champaign to earn his B.S. in Chemistry, graduating magna cum laude in 1972. After working in the Virology lab at the National Cancer Institute, he signed on at Maryland Medical. His most memorable experience during these past four years was watching Joe Willie throw the bomb against Miami the night before the first Anatomy exam. His medical education may go for naught as ten years from now Pat would like to be the light-heavyweight boxing champion of the world. ROY ANN CHRISTINE MRA Z Medical College of Virginia Pediatrics Richmond, Virginia Royann, with her long, long hair and slow, shy smile, went from Lafayette, Indiana to undergraduate school at Purdue University, obtaining a B.S. in Biology. During her medical school career she pursued her outside interests of camping, scuba diving and cross-country skiing whenever time permit- ted. Of all those instrumental in assuring her successful com- pletion of medical school, she singles out the Provident Sav- ings Bank of Baltimore as the most helpful. Royann plans a career in Pediatrics. 96 KEVIN DENNIS MURRA Y University of Chicago Clinics Surgery Chicago, Illinois After three years at Mount St. Mary s College in Emmits- burg, Kevin obtained his B.S. in Chemistry and moved to Charm to further his education. One summer was spent in a Family Practice fellowship in Hagerstown, Kevin’s home- town, and later he journeyed to Houston, Texas for an elective at the M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute. Kevin expected medical school to be an institute where mere mortals were transformed into “physicians, but found instead that the closer he got to becoming a physician the more mortal he felt. His family and friends helped him through these years by putting up with the something else that always had to be done during school. Inspired by Dr. Imbembo, Kevin plans a career in academic General Surgery, and looks forward to having a car that starts every morning. JEREMY S. MUSHER National Naval Medical Center Flexible Bethesda, Maryland After a year ' s study at M.I.T., this native of Silver Spring returned to his home state to study Psychology at College Park, earning a B.S. degree and membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi. On arriving in medical school, Jer- emy was prepared for the hard work and interesting material. He participated in the Psych track for four years, caught up by the excitement for Psychiatry shown by Dr. Wurmser, and experienced memorable personal growth during a year as a regular psychotherapist. In addition, Jeremy worked on staff and planning for the Maryland Leadership Workshops, was a representative. Secretary, Vice President and senior advisor for AMSA, and performed an externship at the College Park Health Center. All this activity was funded by Andrea. Jere- my’s wife and best friend, who is a Physiology graduate stu- dent and research chemist at the Medical Examiner s Office. After a year of internship, Jeremy will fulfill his 27-month Naval committment before completing his Psychiatric train- ing. In the more distant future he hopes to have two children, two dogs, the same wife, a country home with a private prac- tice and a professorship, and the feeling that he s headed in the right direction. 97 DA VID GEORGE OELBERG Texas Medical Branch Hospital Pediatrics Galveston, Texas After obtaining his B.S. in Chemistry at William and Mary, earning membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa along the way, Dave travelled cross country for a while and enjoyed his favorite activities of fishing, camping and water colors, before camping out in Howard Hall. Originally from Waukon, Iowa, this member of the Psych track per- formed a Psychiatry fellowship, resulting in the publication of an article on cardiac arrhythmias during sleep in the CCU. Dave has enjoyed living with his friends in a rowhouse for three years, and is grateful to his parents and friends for their encouragement and support. Having completed a six-month Psychiatry internship at the Walter P. Carter Center, Dave is moving to Texas for his Pediatric training. Eventually Dave sees himself in a hospital-based Pediatric practice, with a boat of his own on which to relax. LALAH CON WA Y NE W BROUGH University of Maryland Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland A native of Washington, D.C., Lalah majored in Russian at the University of Maryland at College Park, earning a Phi Beta Kappa key. General Honors and a B.A. degree in 1968. During medical school she performed a Family Practice per- ceptorship and an externship in Medicine at Union Memorial. In her spare time she enjoys camping with her husband Paul, a painter and all-around wonderful person, and her 8 year old son. With a sigh of relief and a “thank God it’s over,” Lalah prepares for a Family Practice residency, and ten years from now she would like to be part of a small group family practice, and own a car that runs. 98 GARY CHA RLES PRA DA University of Maryland Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Baltimore, Maryland After obtaining his B.S. in Zoology from College Park, this native of Silver Spring worked for a year as a nursing assistant and attended night school before starting his medical studies. Between classes and rotations Gary performed Family Prac- tice preceptorships, and put his newly acquired skills and knowledge to work in a Medical externship at Union Memo- rial. He gained distinction along with his wife Sharon, a dental hygienist, by winning the Town and Country Mixed Doubles Tennis Championship in 1977. Sharon’s encouragement, understanding and ready access as a tennis partner certainly made life more bearable for him over the last four years. Gary’s interest in sports probably influenced his plans to do a residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, with per- haps a career in Sports Medicine in mind. MEREDITH V. OLDS University of Utah Hospitals Surgery Salt Lake City, Utah A native of Gaithersburg, Meredith studied Zoology for three years at College Park earning a Phi Beta Kappa key and receiving her B.S. with high honors after her first year of med- ical school. After she had arrived in Balti more she performed Biochemistry research with Dr. Black, joined the Pediatric track, and was somewhat pleasantly surprised to find her classmates to be talented, interesting and diversified. Having completed medical school, Meredith is grateful to those resi- dents who believed in, and allowed her to experience her own capability, the patient who tried to comfort her at 3 A.M. on a senior Medicine rotation, her husband Peter Gertson, a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics, and her parents and in-laws whose moral support made life infinitely easier. After performing an internship in General Surgery, Meredith will transfer to the University of Connecticut in Hartford for a residency in Neu- rosurgery, and sometime in the not-too-distant future hopes to have a small farm with horses, livestock and a garden. 99 JA Y G. P REN SKY Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland This native of Chevy Chase was elected to Phi Kappa dur- ing his study of Zoology and Arts at College Park, and obtained his B.S. degree after a year’s study in medical school. Before moving to Charm City, however. Jay spent an enjoya- ble summer backpacking in Europe. While in medical school. Jay engaged in experimental neovascularization research at the Wilmer Instutute, won an award from the Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease for his paper “Huntington’s Disease: A Review’’ and presented yet another paper on intravitreal transplantation of primate hepatocarcinoma to the A.O.A. research forum. During sophomore year Jay found himself the best seat in the house for our lecture and slide shows, the one in the projectionist booth. He returned to Europe during senior year to perform a clinical clerkship at the Institute of Neurology in Queen’s Square, but still found time in the midst of all this academic activity to occupy a seat on his sailboat “Laser,’’ racing on the Bay. After a year’s internship. Jay will move on to the University of Wisconsin in Madison for his residency in Ophthalmology. Ten or so years from now Jay looks forward to excellent health, running two marathons a year, winning a few sailboat races, travelling a lot within the confines of an academically oriented practice, and maybe even a few children and a dog. “My psychiatrist’s name is Spodak” — Vera Hall WILLIAM P. P REV AS University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Bill did his undergraduate work at Northwestern University in Evanston, 111., where he was a Dean’s list scholar and grad- uated with a B.A. in Chemistry. Apparently not content with cooking hot dogs, he then decided to become a doctor, though pressure from his mom probably had something to do with his decision. Able to breeze through junior Medicine and Surgery and their strenous on-call schedules. Bill found ENT Clinic to be his most stressful rotation, but admits that he might not have made it through if Sue hadn’t helped him with his home- work. Of everything that has happened over the last four years. Bill will not soon forget getting a dollar in change from the Ponderosa steakhouse that said “Amy” on it — presum- ably the same dollar she used to pay for the note-taking serv- ice a year earlier. Bill looks forward to a career in Ob-Gyn and owning a panel truck with a “Planet of the Apes” decal on the driver’s door. 100 SUSAN HOWE PROUTY University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland Susan grew up in Huntingtown, Md., which, according to legend, is located somewhere in Calvert County. As a college student, she studied Biology at Bucknell University to earn her B.A., and then worked as a nurse’s aide prior to starting medical school. Initially, she had no idea what it was like to work hard, ’but she now reflects upon her med. school years as the most prolonged, intense experience of her life. Although she found it stressful to function so often as a fact machine, she feels that all in all it’s been worth it. Beyond the regular workload. Sue worked as an alcoholism counselor in the Tuerk House and in the ER, and as a Dean’s fellow in Pedia- tric Endocrinology in 1975. She enjoys playing tennis and gar- dening, and would like to be able to take piano lessons in the future while pursuing the practice of Internal Medicine and trying to be a normal person. JESSICA JANE RADCLIEEE University of Colorado Medical Center Pediatrics Denver, Colorado Since her return back east from Oregon, where she had earned a Phi Beta Kappa key majoring in Biology at Reed College, Jane often dreamed of blazing another trail West- ward Ho. Throughout the med. school years, her sometimes elusive husband Sig helped keep her going with his under- standing, enchilada dinners and books about the West. Mak- ing the best of this side of the continent. Jane enjoyed partici- pating in the Pediatric track, serving on the judicial board, and researching SIDS on a Dean’s fellowship. She also man- aged to round up an excellent academic record, being elected to A.O.A. and culminating in superstar status during class commencement exercises. She will train in Pediatrics out West, of course, and will try to find the time to enjoy nature’s gardens with Sig. Special thanks go to Jessie and her vegetable garden; she sure will miss her Silver Queen corn. Ten years or so from now Jane hopes to have a horse ranch in Bend, Ore- gon or Santa Fe, New Mexico plus do some Pediatrics for fun and profit. SHARON LEE REILLY University of Arizona Pediatrics Tucson, Arizona After graduating with high honors and a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Maryland at College Park, Sherry spent the summer travelling as much as possible before enter- ing the tombs of the Bressler Building for Anatomy. She found that her family and friends were able to provide endless support and space for her to complete medical school. In all this space. Sherry was able to perform a Family Practice pre- ceptorship and an externship in the emergency room, partici- pate in the Human Dimensions of Medical Education net- work, and fit in a lot of tennis and skills as well. She plans to do her residency in Pediatrics, with the fantasy of being on call every fifth night and no weekends. R. PATSY RILEY Baltimore City Hospitals Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Patsy obtained her B.S. from the University of Maryland in 1970, her M.S. from the University of Maryland in 1972, and her M.D. from the same place in 1978. When not engaged in studying, she makes it her hobby to fly airplanes. Patsy appre- ciated her parents’ support during her school years, and plans to do a residency in Medicine. 102 RUTH ALICE ROBIN University of Maryland Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Ruth’s Geology professor at the University of Rochester influenced her professional development tremendously when he talked her out of a career in Oceanography. A New York State Regents Scholarship and Scholar incentive winner, Ruth did complete a major in Geology, graduating cum laude. She worked for a year as a research associate studying biofeed- back, then began medical school in 1973 at S.U.N.Y. Stony Brook, and earned an M.S. in Experimental Pathology by the time she transferred to Maryland in 1975. It was quite difficult for Ruth to transfer to a new medical school between fresh- man and sophomore years, especially moving to an area with- out any friends or family — except, of course, her husband Art, whose encouragement, love and support were essential all along the way. Ruth worked as an extern in Surgical Pathol- ogy at St. Agnes Hospital in the summer of 1976. Following her residency in Pediatrics, she hopes eventually to be involved in research and teaching in a Pediatric subspecialty. JAMES ERANCIS ROONEY University of Maryland Internal Medicine Balitmore, Maryland Jim came to medical school from Harvard College, where he had majored in Biochemistry. Early in his med. school experience, he made his mark on his fellow students with his supple prowess on the football field in the Psych Institute courtyard. His athletic skills and interests extend to the swift flow of the canoe and kayak. This man of nature found it especially difficult to stay awake in class, that is, on those rare occasions when he happened to drop by. He thanks his friends who kept him informed and amused as to what went on both inside and outside the school. His free-spirited nonchalance notwithstanding, Jim maintained a fine academic track record down to the wire, graduating cum laude. He will remain at Maryland as a resident in Internal Medicine, trying to stay sane, and dreaming about free time. ELIZABETH MEEHAN ROSS University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Andy is a 1974 graduate with a B.S. and honors in Mathe- matics from College Park. After working as a systems analyst for Control Date Corporation, she came to medical school where whe joined the Pediatric track, volunteered in the E.R. on Friday nights, took art classes, played lots of tennis, was elected to A.O.A., and studied quadraplegia at Montebello. Most memorable of all, however, was the night Chip delivered the most off-handed proposal in recorded history, resulting in their marriage three weeks later. Even though Chip coaxed, cajoled, threatened, and even blackmailed Andy through sophomore year, the toughest part of all was staying awake in lecture; the grease spot from her head on the wall of the lec- ture hall still stands as a testimonial to that fact. In the future, Andy sees herself as a small town doctor in good sailing coun- try, and looks forward to solvency and a credit card. JACOB A. ROSENBERG University of Texas Affiliated Hospital Surgery Houston, Texas Originally from Silver Spring, Jack attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville where he graduated with a B.A. cum laude in Mathematics and married Jean, who studied Econ- imics at the time and now plans to go to dental school. When not in the classroom or studying. Jack was often found in the laboratory, and his diligence, hard work, and perseverence were rewarded with an article on methotrexate being pub- lished in “Lancet.” When not busy with rotations or research. Jack likes to relax with some of his favorite authors (Fitzger- ald, Solzhenitsyn, Faulkner and Joyce), and by playing bridge or squash. He’d like to thank Dr. Sigman for putting up with all of his schedule changes, and plans a residency in General Surgery to be followed by a fellowship in Oncology and a career in academic medicine. 104 RONALD JOSEPH ROSS University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland After graduating with high honors and a B.S. in Chemistry from College Park, Chip worked for a while as a Coca-Cola chemist; it probably was difficult to give up the life that Coke adds for medical school, but somehow he made the switch. Chip participated in the Pediatric track and worked in the emergency room as an attendant while in medical school. His extracurricular activities included tennis, basketball, and Andy, whom he married on Auguest 24, 1975. Chip is grateful to Uncle Sam for paying the way, and looks forward to getting his paycheck and having a private practice. “Doctors are men who prescribe medicine of which they know little.

On arriving at Maryland Medical, Paul expected medical school to be uninteresting and some- thing to get through; instead, he found it challenging and worthwhile, but he’s still glad to be finished. When not engaged in the regular medical curriculum, Paul was a mem- ber of the Psychiatry tracking program and found useful div- ersion in basketball, journalism, Dostoyevsky, Chavura and his wife Jill, a rabbinical student, who provided him with much-needed understanding, patience, encouragement, and good humor. After spending several months studying in Jeru- salem, Paul will go to Cincinnati to continue his Psychiatric training. Finally, ten years from now, he hopes for some teaching responsibilities, some research, some private prac- tice, some family counselling together with Jill, a happy fam- ily life and professional fulfillment. LA WRENCE DA VI D SANDLER University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland This native Baltimorean completed his B.S. in Physics at the University of Maryland in 1971. After travelling around Europe for a year, Larry settled down to slinging hamburgers and observing human behavior in Santa Barbara. He was so fascinated with this preoccupation that on beginning his med- ical training, Larry chose to participate in the Psych track. Another fan of Dostoyevsky, Larry particularly enjoys “The Brothers Karamazov.” Having graduated in January, he has already completed a six-month Medical internship at Mercy Hospital. As he begins his postgraduate Psychiatric training, his plans, hopes, and expectations for the more distant future are, quite characteristically, undefined. 106 SIMON V. SC ALIA Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Sometimes known as Finley, Simon is a native Baltimo- rean who has been active in his city and community as a member of the Little Italy Community Organization and the Sons of Italy. In addition to devoting the usual inordi- nate time to his studies, Simon sold flowers, plants, T- shirts, buttons, and other assorted paraphernalia from his wagon on street corners and at festivals. He attended the University of Maryland at College Park to earn his B.S. with honors in Zoology, travelled through Europe, and worked summer construction before commencing with his medical work. In the summer of 1976 he married Marina, a high school Math teacher. Simon found that his patients would usually teach him the lessons that were not available in any book, and consequently concludes that everybody involved has contributed to his medical education. After completing his residency in Medicine and a four year com- mitment with the U.S. Public Health Service, Simon hopes to have a private practice, life, health, happiness and chil- dren. MICHAEL H. SANDLER Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland During junior year Mike was one of those fortunate stu- dents who was quizzed by Dr. Woodward for his oral exam in Medicine. The more memorable part of that experience was returning to his pre-exam weight when it was over. After earn- ing a B.S. with high honors and membership in Phi Beta Kappa, while studying Psychology at College Park, Mike attended the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine for a year. Consequently he was able to function as a teaching assistant for the Histology course during our freshman year. He also worked in a Family Practice preceptorship one sum- mer. Mike’s non-medical activities have included skiing, magic, photography, and the est training. Following a medical internship, Mike plans to specialize in Ophthalmology, and in the future hopes to be working in his chosen field with time to travel. 107 PA TRICIA LOCKS SCHMOKE Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Patricia came to the University of Maryland Medical School in her junior year after completing her first two years at the University of Florida at Gainesville. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology here in Baltimore, at Coppin State College. Her medical school years were quite busy, as she managed to combine roles as a wife to Kurt, a Rhodes Scholar and graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School, currently working as Assistant Director of Domestic Policy on the White House Staff, and mother to 6-year old Gregory, with her role as a successful medical student. Tricia plans to begin her postgraduate training with a year of Inter- nal Medicine at Mercy Hospital followed by a residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Maryland. HOWARD RICHARD SCHIFFMAN Temple University Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Howard came to the University of Maryland from the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa on the way to receiving his B.A., summa cum laude, in Psychology. Prior to medical school some of his varied experi- ences included being an exchange student to Africa, as well as working as a gardener and as a playground director. During his busy and successful four years in medical school, Howard was able to fit in a Family Practice preceptorship, travel across the country and to Hawaii, hunt for antiques, and still graduate early and work as a staff physician in the Student Health Center. In spite of such intense involvement with extracurricular activities, his superior academic performance earned him membership in A.O.A. He graciously credits his parents for their ideals, dreams, and unfaltering pride, and his wife, a law student at Georgetown, for her interest and con- cern. Howard plans to do his residency in Internal Medicine at Temple, and looks forward to the group practice of Medi- cine in the future. “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” Emerson 108 CHRISTINE RUDLEY SCHNEYER Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. Christy attended Northwestern University in Evanston to earn membership in Pi Kappa Lambda, the National Music Honorary Society, and a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in Piano. She then continued her piano study at Catholic Uni- versity and obtained a Master’s of Music in 1972. After some “concertizing,” studying music in Paris, and participating in a music festival in Aspen, her listeners suffered a tremendous loss when Christy sustained a hand injury which jeopordized her musical career. During her years in medical school she worked for a summer in the Department of Epidemiology of the Maryland Department of Public Health, on projects to improve kidney donor programs and to develop a drug treat- ment for Cystic Fibrosis. Yet she still found time to go swim- ming, to the theatre, play piano, and marry a lawyer going by the name of Jim Insley. After completing her training in Inter- nal Medicine, Christy plans to do a fellowship in Endocrinol- ogy, buy an ancient home in the country, restore it, and live in solitary splendor with a Steinway Grand Piano, lots of chil- dren (a few home-grown, the rest adopted), multiple dogs and horses (all adopted), and to go back to music, reading and travel. ANTHONY O.

SIEGEL Temple University Hospital Surgery Philadelphia, Pennsylvania This native Baltimorean graduated from George Washing- ton University with a B.A. in Zoology in 1973. After complet- ing his basic science work at the Guad., Sandy made his final trip back to Baltimore in 1976, definitely overwhelmed and overjoyed at being able to join our class and not having to travel back to Mexico again. Besides playing a lot of golf, Sandy self-admittedly has worked his tail off, and through his own perseverance and hard work has now successfully com- pleted his medical training. He will attend Temple University for training in Surgery and Urology, and after that Sandy plans to live off the fruits of his hard work, looking forward to a long, happy, prosperous life with his future wife. FREDRIC STEWART SIRKIS Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Another member of that infamous carpool gang (whose membership list need not be repeated again in this book), Fred graduated from College Park with a B.S. in Zoology and membership in Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Sigma. His wife and parents contributed their support, patience and understand- ing to Fred’s career, enabling him to more freely enjoy his studies and several Family Practice preceptorships during the past four years. At first he thought that once he was in medi- cal school all the competition would end, but indeed not, as there was still the class softball team to play for. Having sur- vived the ordeal of never having his name spelled correctly, Fred plans to enter the private practice of Internal Medicine in the future. Ill FRANCISCO A. SMITH Jacksonville Educational Programs Obstetrics-Gynecology Jacksonville, Florida When Pancho was six years old, he recalls looking upon his father with awe and admiration as he, a physician, would go about curing and caring for the ill. So Pancho set out on the long, hard road towards achieving this professional goal and only after many years and considerable travel did this native of Cardenas, Cuba finally attain a similar position of responsi- bility for patient care, this while doing his senior Medicine rotation. Pancho completed his undergraduate work at West Virginia University, receiving his A.B. in Biology-Zoology, and during his free summers worked construction and tra- velled throughout Florida and Mexico. During medical school he was able to return to Florida once again, performing an externship at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Ob-Gyn, as well as completing an externship in Medicine at St. Agnes. His out- door interests include tennis, golf, water skiing and swimming. Not surprisingly, Pancho looks forward to returning to Flo- rida for his residency in Ob-Gyn. PATRICIA A. SNELLO Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Pat did her undergraduate work in Baltimore, graduating from the College of Notre Dame summa cum laude, with a B.A. in Biology. While in medical school, despite the heavy course load, she was able to help support herself by working in the University Hospital Microbiology lab, as well as find time to ride her horse Excalibur as often as possible. She will not soon forget the wild trip to the “Hippo” with fellow stu- dents freshman year. Pat plans to stay in Baltimore for her residency in Internal Medicine, and looks forward to the pri- vate practice of Internal Medicine and owning a horse farm in the future. 112 JEROME IRA SNYDER Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Now that it’s over, Jerry is glad he had the perseverance to put up with four years of this place, though Denise, the Fac- ulty Follies and freshman and other assorted parties helped to ease the misery somewhat. Before undertaking the challenge of medical school, he obtained his B.A. at UMBC in Psychol- ogy and attended Pharmacy School for a year. In his usual casual and nonchalant manner, Jerry plans to make his resi- dency decision after completing an internship in Internal Medicine, and regardless of anything else the future may hold, he hopes at least to have a small farm and the time to enjoy it. ALEXIS BOH DAN SOKIL Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts The most thoroughbred Ukraninian in our class, Alex attended college on the steppes of upstate New York, graduat- ing cum laude with a degree in Chemistry and Biological Sci- ences from Cornell University. He worked for the Social Secu- rity Administration making sure poor people get the benefits they deserve, then while in medical school, he devoted much energy to various medical aspects of alcoholism, including presenting seminars to counselors-in-training and appearing on television to discuss the education of health professionals regarding this subject. In addition, he found time to perform a Dean’s fellowship on setting up a model of hypertension in rats. As class Vice President, he was always around to make sure Ian kept his promises, and is grateful to Cyndi for her encouragement, compassion, argumentativeness and Crib- bage board. A member of A.O.A., Alex will train in Internal Medicine at Boston City Hospital, possibly subspecializing thereafter, and hopes someday to help free the Ukraine from the Bolsheviks. 113 BARRY ALAN SOLOMON University of South Florida Medical Center Internal Medicine Tampa, Florida After graduating magna cum laude in Biology from the University of Hartford in Connecticut, Barry spent over a year at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine doing research on calcium metabolism. These labors resulted in a publica- tion, “The Role of Parathyroid Hormone in the Maintenance of Plasma Calcium Levels in Rats.” During his medical school career he performed two Family Practice preceptorships, and in his spare time enjoyed all sports, especially swimming and tennis. He feels that the mutual support amongst his class- mates made it possible for all to survive and succeed, and has fond recollections of the fun, loud, wild class parties of our first two years. He hopes eventually to have a private practice in Internal Medicine, but meanwhile he will be a resident in Internal Medicine at the University of South Florida. E. TIMOTHY SOUWEINE University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland Timmy completed his undergraduate studies at the Univer- sity of Maryland — College Park, receiving his B.S. in Zool- ogy, before coming to medical school.

Timmy plans to stay in Baltimore to do his residency in Internal Medicine — Primary Care at the University of Maryland. 1 14 “What’s time to a pig?” STUA RTR ODER T STARK University of Maryland Neurology Baltimore, Maryland Stu graduated with high honors from College Park in 1974 after studying Psychology for his B.S. degree. Although renowned as the organizer and director of the notetaking ser- vices during the freshman and sophomore years, Stu also organized the class men’s softball team, was the sophomore representative to both the Medical School Council and the Curriculum Committee, and during the junior and senior years functioned as representative to the Clinical Years Com- mittee. All these extracurricular activities didn’t seem to hinder Stu’s academic performance, as he did a Family Prac- tice preceptorship in 1975, was a Medical extern at Mercy in 1976, and maintained an outstanding performance level wor- thy of membership in A.O.A. In spite of compiling such an impressive record, his most memorable experience during the past four years came on “Brooks Robinson Day” at Memorial Stadium, and the favorite book in his personal library is Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.” For his successful completion of medical school Stuart is grateful to his parents for their financial and emotional backing, and to his brother, Drs. Kappelman and Pachuta for their guidance and support. After completing his internship in Medicine, Stu plans a resi- dency in Neurology and looks forward to a career in private practice. SUSAN MARIE STASIEWICZ South Baltimore General Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Susan attended classes at the University of Maryland — College Park where she majored in Zoology, earned member- ship in the Biological Honor Society and graduated with hon- ors in 1974. Getting right down to the business at hand in medical school, Susan participated in the Pediatric tracking program, acted as representative to the Student Government Association first and second years, and later performed a Family Practice preceptorship in addition to a Medical externship at Mercy Hospital. Her most memorable occu- rence during medical school came when she met Thom, now her fiance, who, along with both their families, supported and encouraged her continued education, which now includes a planned residency in Ob-Gyn. 115 MA LCOLM A UBRE Y STEELE Indiana University Medical Center Medicine Indianapolis, Indiana A native of Havre de Grace, Mac czme to the University of Maryland from Johns Hopkins University, graduating in only three years with General Honors and a B.A. in Natural Sci- ence. He continued the same high level of academic achieve- ment in medical school, apparently absorbing well the volu- minous trivia dumped on him by the basic science faculty, being elected to A.O.A. during a busy four years which included two years of research on anti-tumor drugs in the Bal- timore Cancer Research Center, resulting in the publication of a paper on the pharmacodynamics of Adriamycin metabol- ites, along with the performance of a Family Pi;actice precep- torship and an externship in Internal Medicine at Union Memorial. In his free time Mac enjoys playing classical music on the flute.

During her four years as a medical student she was able to further her research experience by completing an NIH Student Research fellowship. She was also active in trying to promote the humanism in the medical school envi- ronment as a member of the Human Dimensions in Medical Education Committee. The pervasiveness of the influence of medical school was practically all-encompassing, as it became difficult for Judy to relax and enjoy things without looking at everything clinically. In fact, it’s even invaded her needle- work, as evidenced by the EMI scan on pages 6-7. Judy plans to do her residency in Internal Medicine and remains open- minded about anything farther in the future. DONALD LEE STEIN WEG Walter Reed Army Institute Medicine Washington, D.C. While it may seem like the entire class was transplanted from College Park, Don is a notable exception, having majored in Biology at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania where he earned a B.S. degree and a Phi Beta Kappa key, and graduated magna cum laude in 1973. Following a year of medically related experience as a drug salesman in New Jer- sey for Merck, Sharp Dohme, Don moved to Maryland for his medical training.

She spent an active four years in medical school, finding time to take a surgical elective in Denver, Colorado, and perform a Cardiology fellowship at St. Agnes. In her free time, she has enjoyed gardening and hiking, marathon bridge games duirng the afternoons of year one and two, and watch- ing Rick Hallock following Mike Ichniowski down Charles street in his car (as Mike was walking to Penn Station), blow- ing kisses out the window to Mike every 2 or 3 seconds. Most memorable of all, however, was the time Jennifer was detained by the police in the U.S. Senate for possession of a deadly weapon! On the other hand, the most distressing situa- tion for her during the past four years was having to eat the food at the V.A. Jennifer is grateful to her parents for being willing to listen when she needed to talk, and for giving her encouragement (and criticism) when it was necessary. She plans to do her residency in Surgery at the University of North Carolina and looks forward to subspecializing in Plas- tic Surgery. ELLEN LEVIN TA YLOR Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Elbe obtained her A.B. in pre-medical studies from Goucher College, graduating with general honors.

THOMAS Franklin Square Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland A native of Lusby, Maryland, Ron attended classes at Western Maryland College in Westminster where he majored in Biology to earn his B.A. degree and membership in the Argonauts Society, Omicron Delta Kappa and the Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society. His summers prior to medical school were spent working as a hospital orderly and as an emergency medical technician. Before starting his medical studies Ron feared that medical school would be a very strict, austere atmosphere of nothing but books, bones and bodies. Instead he found it to be a reasonably friendly place with much more free time than he expected, time he utilized to a great extent to perfect his tennis game. Although digesting the concept of Kuru was not very palatable, Ron obviously came a long way when he began to look forward to the midnight pizza runs while doing senior Medicine at the V.A. Thanks to the guidance and financial support provided by his mother and family, two Family Practice preceptorships, and being a member of the Family Practice Club, in the future Ron hopes to establish a private or group Family Practice in a rural or suburban area.

She took advantage of her summers during medical school to travel to NMA conventions and par- ticipate as a group leader in a youth workshop, but of her medical school rotations she particularly reminisces about junior Medicine, which was, in turn, the best, the worst, the hardest and the most fun. Having successfully completed the medical curriculum, Lornel is grateful to her parents for financial support and encouragement, and especially to her late father, who, as a physician, guided her through medical school and helped formulate her care er plans. Lornel plans to do her residency in Internal Medicine at Howard University in Washington, D.C. on the way to setting up a practice in the Washington community in the future. ROBIN MARIANNE ULANOW George Washington University Hospital Surgery Washington, D.C. When all was said and done, Robin was at a loss for words. 122 STEPHEN A. VALENTI University of Maryland Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “I experience what I have, rather than looking forward to that which I may never possess.” These words constitute a sort of motto for Steve, whose past experiences have been excep- tionally diversified, rewarding, perhaps even glamorous. While in high school and college, Steve performed six nights a week in Rock and Roll bands as a guitarist and vocalist. He shared the stage with Buddy Rich and Three Dog Night when they appeared at College Park. Steve also writes songs, enjoys jogging, bicycling, and karate, in which he has a green belt.

NEIL ERIC WARRES Sinai Hospital of Baltimore Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Neil came to medical school with a rich background in music, having completed his undergraduate work at Haver- ford College in Pennsylvania with a B.A. in the double major of Music and English. In the intervening years before coming to the University of Maryland, he was active playing the vio- lin as a soloist, in ensembles and in the Haverford-Bryn-Mawr Orchestra. An avid sailor Neil was able to pursue this interest in the sea during his medical school career, as well as travel cross-country and to Canada on camping trips. Through her understanding and tolerance, his wife Joanne, a pianist and music therapist, was instrumental in Neil’s completion of medical school. Neil is unsure about the type of practice he would like to have in the future; regardless, he plans to enjoy life and to begin his residency in Internal Medicine in Balti- more. 125 RENEE A. WASCHLER Maryland General Hospital Medicine Baltimore, Maryland If you haven’t noticed from her accent Renee hails from New Jersey. There she graduated summa cum laude and with Phi Beta Kappa honors from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Zoology. She can’t believe that medical school is over but is glad to be irrevocably finished with freshman anatomy. Renee performed a Family Practice preceptorship and when not in the hospital likes to swim, ski, bike, sun and read non-medical literature. Plans for the near future include a Medical intern- ship followed by a residency in Ophthalmology. As for ten years from now, who knows! “One must tend his own garden.” Voltaire JOHN WATERS University of California Medicine Merced, California John, who doesn’t want to bore you with the details, would like to capitalize on this opportunity to say, “Hi!” 126 REVA MARCIA WATSON Grady Memorial Hospital Radiology Atlanta, Georgia Marcia came to medical school from Morgan State Univer- sity, where she received her B.S. in Mathematics and was elected to numerous honorary societies. Prior to commencing her medical studies she worked as a laboratory technician, as a counselor in the Head Start program and travelled exten- sively throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. She was quite active while in medical school, finding time, along with the completion of her studies, to do special projects such as work on a Psychiatric evaluation team at Rosewood and be a member of a health care evaluation team at Stuart Hill Ele- mentary School. Marcie was Vice President of our SNMA chapter, as well as a delegate to the SNMA New Orleans con- vention, and a delegate to the NMA convention in Los Ange- les in 1978. She was also active in the community as a delegate to the Baltimore Community Health Council seminar in 1976. She took an elective in Radiology at Emory University, an experience which resulted in her publication of two papers. With all the rest, she still occasionally found time to enjoy sewing, swimming and roller-skating. Marcie plans to start her residency in Diagnostic Radiology and looks forward to con- tinuing academics and private practice in the future. DONALD THOMAS W EG LEIN Union Memorial Hospital Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Don, a.k.a. Big Red, a.k.a. Specks, is one of Baltimore’s own. He graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Loyola Col- lege, and, while here, enjoyed junior Medicine, but could have survived with a little less pathology. He took the time during his medical school career to perform an externship in Family Practice and, when not studying, relaxed by playing tennis, softball, bowling, sailing, and water skiing. Don is grateful to his family and his wife Carolyn, a speech pathologist, for their support and patience throughout the four years of this endur- ance challenge, and hopes eventually to practice Medicine in the Baltimore-Washington area. 127 BRUCE E. WEN EC K Children’s Hospital Pediatrics Buffalo, New York Bruce lived in Hagerstown before moving to Baltimore to attend medical school. He had done his undergraduate work in Chemistry and graduated cum laude. While in medical school, he enjoyed participating in class basketball games, even though he found guarding Ich to be his most stressful predicament of the past four years. Bruce also served with dis- tinction as our junior class secretary treasurer. He thanks his parents for helping him in every way they could, and his plans include postgraduate training in Pediatrics, the private prac- tice of Pediatrics in Western Maryland, and, ultimately, being the Raquetball Champion in Hagerstown. RANDOLPH G. WHIPPS University of Maryland Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Randy came to medical school from Johns Hopkins Uni- versity complete with his B.A. in Biology and an ever-present smile on his face. Prior to coming here he had gained experi- ence working as a substitute teacher, in a pharmacy and for a major local supermarket chain whose name will go unmen- tioned. While keeping his medical school work of the caliber that interests the folks at A.O.A., Randy also managed to be our sophomore class Vice President, a member of the Year 1 Curriculum Committee, do externships in both Medicine and Surgery at local area hospitals, and hold membership on the Psych Institute Courtyard Lunchtime Football Team. Randy will be staying on at University for his residency, and ten years from now hopes to be working as an internist in a group practice, while in his spare time he wants to be exploring his surrounding waterways in his hopefully soon to be acquired sailboat.
