MARYLAND 21201 COMMITTEE ON ADMISSIONS TELEPHONE: OOt) 528-7470 November 12, 1974 Dear It is with very great pleasure that the comnittee on admissions is able to offer you a place in the class of 1979 entering the School of Medicine in September, 1975. We found that beyond the traffic, noise and commotion at the crossroads of our University, the attractions and distractions of “Charm City” and thq surround- ing state helped to maintain a critical and delicate balance: between medical school and real life. 4 Severn River.

We struggled with biochemistry and anat- omy first, then graduated to pathology and pharmacology ... all together form- ing th( ' groundwork upon which we were to build our ability to ultimately care for olhiu ' s. 1 “Do not waste the hours of daylight in listening to that which you may read by night. ” Sir William Ostler 9 The hours demanded were often grueling, but we did find time to be caught RELAXING. The Campus Inn and the Synapse were diversions for many, and vacation time was especially precious. Even with a heavy schedule we tried never to miss an opportunity for fresh air and good company. A nd then — with a sense of magic — we were suddenly in our clinical years. We found MS III, then MS IV. proudly written after our names, and we began two years of work in . . . THE HOSPITAL. This had been our goal and we viewed its coming with mixed feelings: fear, inadequacy, excitement, and pride. We delved eagerly into the world of the patient’s history and physical exam, the problem list, and differential diagnosis. We worked on wards and in ICU’s in many of Baltimore’s hospitals and were introduced to 36 hour days, scut work, and roundsman- ship. We struggled to learn to apply and crystallize the facts we worked so hard to retain. Now. we will do well to remember these words before we become too sure of ourselves: “The patient, treated on the fash- ionable theory, sometimes gets well in spite of the medicine. " (Thomas Jefferson to Dr. Caspar Wistar, 1807) . 12 13 14 w e all have our own experiences to remember, but we certainly won’t forget these: “controlling my patient’s blood pressure” “admitting a Jehovah’s Witness who was a G1 bleeder” “interviewing an acutely psychotic patient” “finding an operable cancer that others had missed” “the first baby I delivered solo was on my own birthday” “being up all night with a critical patient” “the first patient who introduced me as his ‘Doc’ “realizing that patients you like often die” “seeing my patient get well by my efforts” 15 So. we look back on the past four years and find ourselves enriched, educated, and hopefully in possession of an intact psyche. We treasure our memories and friendships — and we move on in medicine, and continue . . . GROWING 16 “The study of Medicine is in fact the study of living and dying. No more cen- tral nor enormous concern seems to exist: or at least this seems so for the peculiar and puzzling species of men and women who elect to take upon themselves the role of physician. And the innermost mystery of all the most frightening, the most compellingly interesting, the most inescapable truth encountered in this journey is that one cannot learn about living and dying only in others. One cannot help but make inferences about one ' s own life and death ... it seems beyond doubt that upon one’s comprehension of liv- ing and dying depends one’s ability to serve as a physician.” Lorin L.

I’ve also learned a lot, not all of it medical. Good luck to everybody; I’ll think of you next winter as I lie on the beach in California!’’ DAVID AUERBAGH Hospitals of the University Health Center Radiology Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania After successful completion of kindergarten with a B in penmanship and a D in coloring between the lines, David muddled through an additional 15 years of study to finally graduate with high honors and a B.S. in Psychology. With the much appreciated help of Bill Tarr and his troupe of notetakers, medical training was completed without much duress. David is married to Chris Auerbach, assistant chief technol- ogist in RIA at Washington Hospital Center. He plans to pursue a career in Radiology and would like to wish his classmates the best of luck and happiness in the future. 36 ARTHUR EDWARD BAKAL Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Artie did his undergrduate work at the University of Pennsylvania earning a B.A. in Biology. About his medical school experi- ence, Artie states, “I thought we would use a more conceptual approach rather than the rote memory we employ. Medicine is taught as an isolated aspect of a person’s well-being, rather than as part of a social and economic milieu”. Artie’s leisure time activities include camping, canoeing, tennis, and cycling. He plans a career in Internal Medicine and hopes to spend some time practicing in the rural Western U.S. before returning to Charm City to set- tle. GREGORY B. BARBER Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts 37 PHILIP BARR Riverside Hospital Family Practice Newport News, Virginia “After eight summers of commer- cial crabbing on the lower Eastern Shore, 1 finally took on the big city and graduated with a B.A. in Biology at the University of Pennsylvania. During those cherished moments away from school I enjoyed sailing, soccer, banjo-picking, Saab-tinker- ing, and being with Marilyn. At UMAB 1 served time in the Student Government and on many adminis- trative committees. By far, however, my most worthwhile and enjoyable experience at UMAB was the privi- lege of being part of the Human Dimensions in Medical Education program.” “The purpose of life is like the horizon; the further one advances, the further it recedes.” — Hazrat Inayat Khan GARY GEORGE BAWTINHIMER North Carolina Memorial Psychiatry Chapel Hill, North Carolina Medical school was “an extremely intense experience though well worth one’s time as 1 feel 1 have learned to appreciate a much broader sense of the human condition”. Spice and Maureen 38 WILLIAM EDWARD BECKER Youngstown Hospital Surgery Youngstown. Ohio A tortuous path of memories — foibles and fears, lectures and labs, profs and careers, rotations and rounds, patients and peers, and nights, on and off. A summit reached. The path winds on. Memories change to wondering thoughts — Residencies and Boards, choice treatments and chiefs . . . The road courses on. Where and how shall we go? Will we know inner peace and security along with the facts? Will our search be empty as our coffers are full? Will our gain be our giving or fade as a loss? A journey, geared by pursuit of life’s mystery and studded by memories of persons in touch and dreams of what life can be — Rich, not for the get but the give, to us and from. The road is ours to fashion, choices along the way. Begun as a path, becoming a road, and continuing toward other summits. An experience has become a way of life. The horizon is ever ahead. — WEB BRUCE DAVID BEHOUNEK University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland “It’s very hard to believe that four years have passed since the freshman orientation outside Davidge Hall. I remember vividly the apprehension that I felt at that point. I believe that I have under- gone a great deal of growth since that time, but I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of my medical career. Perhaps my greatest disappointment was realizing that you can’t know everything about everything. My greatest joy was making friends that will last a lifetime. I feel indebted to my immediate family and close friends, for without them medical school may have been possible, but not quite as rewarding. The nicknames will probably stick: Soto Dog, Cowboy, KC, Papa Mike, Monkey, Coach, Wil- lie, Dr. Sin, Mouse, Kareem, Little Doc, and everyone — best of luck. I hope that everyone involved cher- ishes the good times (Jasper Street bashes. Ocean City, the Stowe and Aspen trips) and looks for more happiness in the future.’’ 39 BRADLEY STEPHEN BENDER Baltimore City Hospitals Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland S. 26 y.o. white male complains of fatigue, anxiety, and depres- sion of four years duration. ROS is positive for headaches, palpita- tions, chest pain, diaphoresis, loss of appetite, midepigastric abdominal pain, and diarrhea. O. Physical exam is censored. Other data: B.A. in Chemistry from Middlebury College, 1975; M.D. from the University of Mary- land, 1979. A. Though the pt. is probably a turkey, there seems to be some underlying aggravating factor. In the future it is hoped that he will be able to grow with his solid background and, though prognosis is guarded at this time, it is hoped that Brad will become a compe- tent, compassionate physician. P. Three year Internal Medicine residency at City Hospitals; RTC in 5 years. THEODORE VAL BENDEREV University of California — San Diego Surgery San Diego, California Now that he’s finished with medical school, what does Ted want in life? — A woman to love, — A place in the sun near the surf, — A happy and healthy patient and the means to keep him so (though that may not always be with a cysto- scope!), — And the family and friends to share his life, with. ‘Tm on the road.” Ted and Kathy 40 MARILYN HELEN BENNETT Sinai Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Marilyn graduated from Towson State College summa cum laude with a B.S. in Biology and worked as a labora- tory scientist for the State Health Department before com- ing to medical school. During her four years at Maryland, Marilyn was an honors student and was elected to AOA. Her Ob-Gyn rotation in St. Agnes was her most memora- ble experience and she finds that appreciation from her patients is the most rewarding part of her job. When not “on the job”, Marilyn spends time with her boyfriend, Richard, an Environmental Engineer. Marilyn looks for- ward to a practice in Pediatrics and beginning a family. MICHAEL JEROME BERARD Prince Georges General Hospital Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland 41 DAVID SAMUEL BERLINER Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Dave completed his undergraduate edu- cation at Boston University receiving a B.A. in Biology. His activities during medi- cal school included an externship in psy- chiatry at the Brockton, Massachusetts VA Hospital and his marriage to Barbara Fivush, a pediatrics intern. During his lei- sure time Dave enjoys travelling, camping and athletics. MARY PAMELA BEUSCH University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Known to most of the administration and faculty as “Mary”, Pam was raised in Relay, Maryland. She gradu- ated summa cum laude and was class valedictorian at the College of Saint Elizabeth in New Jersey. Her medical school years have been distinguished by several summers as a research lab assistant at the NIH and by the record she holds for hours parked on Scott Street without a break-in. Pam has long-planned on a career in Ob-Gyn, and hopes someday for a practice in Gyn endocrinology or research in fetal immunology — unless she switches to Psychiatry! 42 ADAM SCOTT BLACKSIN Baltimore City Hospitals Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland DAVID ALAN BLASS Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. “Life is short and the art of medi- cine long; the occasion fleeting, experience fallacious and judgement difficult. The doctor must not only be prepared to do what is right him- self; but also make the patient, the attendants, and externals co-oper- ate.” From: Hippocrates, Book of Aphorisms 43 JOANNE L. BLUM Michael Reese Hospital Internal Medicine Chicago, Illinois “My month in London, at Guy’s Hospital, on the Renal Firm, allowed me to participate in a different way of life and in a different brand of medicine. English medicine seemed low-keyed, with frequent and delightful tea breaks, but also seemed sober and formal. I had to learn to listen differently; communication was understated. The reliance on the physical exam was impressive and the cost-consciousness pointed to what will occur more and more in the United States. No televisions blared, phones didn’t ring at the bedside, and I didn’t stumble over furni- ture in the old fashioned long wards with rows of beds that didn’t operate with electric motors. All was spare and brisk. So too were the nurses, all business in their white starched caps and pinafores. We hung “drips’’ instead of IV’s and “clocked” patients instead of working them up. There is more than one way to care for the patient. Viva la difference!” DAVID G. BOSTWICK Stamford Hospital Pathology Stamford, Connecticut A graduate of UMBC with a B.A. in Biology, Dave came to medical school with an already cultivated interest in research. He worked at the National Cancer Institute and the University of California San Diego where he was co- author of three papers concerning chemical carcinogen- esis. As freshman class Vice-president, he coordinated the sale of our black bags, making us “real docs”. In his leisure time Dave enjoys playing piano and organ. Another seri- ous activity, bicycling, has prompted him to authorship of Official Bicycling Guide to Maryland, a guide book for bikers in the state. Dave is pursuing a Pathology residency and is interested in oncology research. 44 RICHARD EMERSON BRAUN Charleston Medical Center Internal Medicine Charleston, West Virginia Richard comes from La Plata, Maryland and graduated magna cum laude in Biology from Towson State. During the last four years he has had several accomplishments, including his marriage to Emori, an elementary school teacher, and together producing a lovely girl named Jessica, born on January 9, 1978. In that never ending search for a specialty, Richard found that Psychiatry was definitely not h is calling during his first interview with a halluci- nating paranoid schizophrenic patient. He plans to do a residency in Internal Medicine and hopefully have more time for his family and hobbies — basketball, tennis, and reading. “There is nothing in life so irrational that good sense and chance may not set it to rights; nothing so rational that folly and chance may not utterly confound it.” — Goethe STEVEN GARY BROWN Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Steve graduated from Trinity College in Hartford, Con- necticut with a B.S. in Biochemistry and travelled in Europe for five months prior to medical school. He was active in the Psychiatry tracking program, CAPP, and is a survivor of one and a half years of Physical Diagnosis with Dr. Iber. (Shouldn’t that deserve a prize?) Steve finds that his medical school experience finally has him headed for a career in Ophthalmology. 45 KAREN COLLEEN CARROLL University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland “I consider going to medical school a privilege and I have enjoyed the experience overall, particularly the clini- cal years. The best aspects have been the friendships I have made and the patient contact, both of which have provided personal insight. Extracurricular highlights include travel to Colorado in the summer of 1977, EST training in 1978, and a two week trip to Ireland in 1979. When things seem to get trying, I sometimes read passages from Hugh Prather’s Notes to Myself, my favorite of which is; ’If someone criticizes me I am not any less because of that. It is not a criticism of me, but critical thinking from him. He is expressing his thoughts and feel- ings not my being’.” April JOHN L. CHAPMAN West Virginia University Hospital Internal Medicine Morgantown, West Virginia “White masks, black faces, the four of us against the world.” Shanti Adonna 46 JAMES A. COCKEY Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Jim worked as an elementary school teacher, psych hos- pital attendant, cab driver, and mailman before coming to medical school. While a medical student, his favorite pas- times were walking tours of Baltimore, Sunday church, cooking, a good cigar, and Cathy. Jim and Cathy plan to set up a home and practice on the Eastern Shore. “The time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things, of ships and shoes and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.” — Lewis Carroll LOUIS H. COHEN University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland CC: “I was trying to get this thing in on time.” HPI: This is the first and last University of Maryland admission for this 29 year old white male retired student. PMH: Spent preclinical years on “the con- tinent” experiencing the delights of the var- ied cultures, learning a new language, and trying to connect a few synapses between basic medical concepts. After beating the “Boards” (it was at least a tie), he returned to the old country to expand and refine his quite fundamental knowledge. ASSESSMENT: We were glad to have him join us! PLAN: Graduate! 47 CHRISTINE LYNN COMMERFORD University of Maryland Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; . . . Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind . , — John Donne LOIS MARIE CONN University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland Lois visited Baltimore for the first time in the spring of 1971 and unexpectedly spent the following eight years here. She graduated from Goucher College with a B.A. in Chemistry and then taught high school science for a short while before entering med school. In addition to academ- ics, Lois devoted a portion of her time to the Tuerk House alcoholism program. She intends to train in Pediatrics and Psychiatry, and hopefully find time to set up a pottery studio one day. 48 KEVIN MICHAEL COOKE University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Kevin (alias KC, T-cell, Killer), one of the more well-rounded members of the class, was a lacrosse star before entering medical school. He came to Maryland from Bucknell and stated that he found Friday mornings to be the most stressful situations he dealt with here. His most memorable experience in the past four years was his marriage to Laurie, and now he looks forward to possessing an Ameri- can Express Card. Kevin has found the following quote particularly meaningful: “You’re a long time dead”. — Johnny Uni- tas HENRY FRANCIS CRABBE Yale New Haven Medical Center Psychiatry New Haven, Connecticut Henry came to medical school as a psychologist who wanted to become a psychiatrist. Unswerving in this goal, he participated in the Combined Accelerated Program in Psychiatry. He holds a M.A. degree from Columbia Uni- versity and is presently completing a Ph.D. in Psychology from Catholic University in D.C. Henry, who graduated this past January, wants a special note of love and appreci- ation given to his wife Kathy for getting them through the struggles of medical school. “Psychiatry requires a tolerance for ambiguity and the ability to feel comfortable with uncertainty. Becoming a psychiatrist has meant a transformation into a physician. This change for me is important because the psychiatry of the future will be more closely intermeshed with medicine in the fields of liaison psychiatry and psychosomatic med- icine. Thus, psychiatry represents a challenging vocation that can fully engage my interests in both humanitarian service and research.” 49 FRANKLIN MICHAEL CRANE Walter Reed Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Washington, D.C. Mick, a graduate of Brigham Young University, came to med- ical school after two years of working in a mission in Finland and travel in Europe and Scandinavia. During medical school he married Becki who worked in Social and Preventive Medi- cine until the birth of their first daughter, fessica Lee. Thirteen months later their family grew with the addition of a second daughter, Jennie Lynn. Mick plans to become involved in group practice, do Gyn surgery, and complete law school by 1990. In addition, Mick will mark his success by having a large, happy family and by teaching them to be honest and strong — and it seems he has an excellent start! NANCY TOD CROOKER Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Boston, Massachusetts It started in Braintree of Mass., When a determined idealistic lass, Said, “I want some more knowledge. So I’ll go to college.” And joined old S.U.’s nursing class. That all went quite well for a while. ' Till she found nursing wasn’t her style. Desp ite Master’s degree. In child psychiatry. And a lengthening " CV” on file. She wondered, “Well, what should I be? Since quite a few things interest me. But, if God would grant wishin’. I’d be a physician.” So. she started toward her M.D. The rest of the story you know, ‘Cause into your class she did go. As a CAPP she had fun. While the work, it got done. With occasional blows to EGO. Not surprising at all, don’t you think? She’s decided to be a child-shrink. She’ll stay here for year one. Then go North, ’til it’s done. And with luck, will return in a wink. To her friends, for the help and the fun. She sends thanks and good luck to each one. And although she’ll give cheers. At the end of four years. Her internship waits to be done. — NTC 50 FLORA J. DANISI Medical College of South Carolina Surgery Charleston, South Carolina Originally from New Jersey, Flora received her B.S. with high honors at the University of Maryland where she par- ticipated in photochemistry and immunoembryology research. Her interest in travel led her to explore Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Spain, France, and Canada prior to the rigors of medical education. Now, her plans include a residency in General Surgery followed most probably by a partnership practice. It seems our classmate, Eric, will help Flora recall pleasant memories of medical school for a lifetime! f JUDITH BURTON DILLMAN “I have really enjoyed my four years at the University of Maryland, and the opportunity to meet the many fine people in our class. The field of Anesthesiology is currently at the t op of my list for future specialization, but immediate plans for post- graduate training await the birth of my third child which is due for graduation. My best wishes to all of you, and my thanks for the part you played in helping to make medical school a pleas- ant experience.” Editor’s note: Drew, Jr. was born on June 5. Twelve pounds, one ounce! Congratulations to the Dillman’s! 51 ROBERT GEORGE DORR Hospitals of the University Health Center Pediatrics Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Sidney Lanier, Bob, and Carol’s Joni. BURT IRA FELDMAN Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Burt, or as he is more fondly known, “The BIF”, is a native of Silver Spring and a graduate of Col- lege Park with a B.S. in Biochemistry. In his spare time prior to medical school, Burt played violin in the Wolf Trap Orchestra and the University of Maryland Symphony Orchestra. Along a more medical line, he pursued Platelet Metabolism research at the NIH. Burt plans to do Primary Care and someday go back to the violin (maybe repair- ing violins in southern France?!). 52 DANIEL SCOTT FINELLI William Shands Hospital Internal Medicine Gainesville, Florida Scott graduated from College Park with a B.S. in Zool- ogy and did a lot of fishing prior to coming to medical school. Scott’s love for the wafer has influenced his view of medical school, which has changed from a pre-school concept of “smooth sailing’’ to a current observation: “heavy seas with near abandonment of ship at numerous junctures’’. However, he has managed to survive! Scott plans to do a residency in Internal Medicine and probably chose Florida to fulfill his dream to catch a world record blue marlin for his mantle. MITCHELL FINKEL Baylor College of Medicine Internal Medicine Houston, Texas 53 MARK FREDERICK FISHER Case Western Reserve University Radiology Cleveland, Ohio “The past four years have been a time for making many friends and for learning many things. By the time this yearbook is published, 1 will be in downtown Cleveland on the shore of beautiful Lake Erie — learning another thing — Radiology. 1 would like to thank my parents for their support over the past four years (both financial and emotional), and Meta, my wife (as of this fune 10), for mar- rying me and for her willingness to take up residence in Cleveland.” CHRISTOPHER S. FORMAL Thomas fefferson University Rehabilitation Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Prior to coming to medical school, and after gradu- ation in Psychology from Haverford College, Chris spent some time working for a social service agency in Illinois. During the pre-clinical years Chris was one of the preferred note-takers of the class. Plan- ning a career in Rehabilitation Medicine, Chris states that he will join his here pictured partner in his part- ner’s already established practice! 54 GARY ROSS FRIEDMAN Albany Medical Center Internal Medicine Albany, New York “The past four years have not only enriched me with medical knowledge, but have also enriched my psychoso- cial development. I feel that after this experience, I can better relate to people. In addition to building my self-con- fidence, I have learned to be humble as there have been times that I have felt I was a genius and other times an ignoramus!” SCOTT DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “Being in medical school has given me the opportunity to experience interactions with people that I could have never considered or imagined otherwise. Already these interactions have begun to appear routine, yet upon reflec- tion, it is very apparent that they are very spe- cial — the role of the physician is indeed uni- que. “The reason why the cure of so many dis- eases is unknown to the physicians of Hellas is because they are ignorant of the whole which ought to be studied also; for the part can never be well unless the whole is well . . . for this is the great error of our day that the physicians separate soul from body.” — Plato, Charmides 55 JEFFREY DENNIS GABER Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Having first graduated from Emory University with a B.A. in Chemistry, Jeff spent a year in graduate studies in Pharmacology before coming to medical school. He was a Blood Bank phlebotomist for four years and was captain of the blood-drawing team for one summer. As a sopho- more, Jeff was in Dr. Woodward’s Physical Diagnosis group and successfully mastered one of the best impres- sions we have heard of Dr. Woodward, delighting us with the portrayal at the “Sophomore Sillies’’. The extracurri- cular highlight of Jeff’s medical school years was his mar- riage to Syndy, a clinical audiologist and long time signifi- cant other. He plans a career in Internal Medicine.

E. Woodward and the Internal Medicine department for setting up a model for the ’complete physician’; one which 1 hope 1 have been at least pointed in the direction of resembling. To my class- mates, especially those 1 have gotten to know well, without whom these four years would have been miserable. 1 hope we stay in touch regardless of the multitude of directions we go in after graduation. To those who have contributed to my education and maturation over these years as role models from which 1 could form my own ’modus operand!’. And finally, 1 want to express my appreciation and thanks for my nomination into AOA.’’ 57 LEON WAGNER GIBBLE York Hospital Internal Medicine York, Pennsylvania Leon spent five years in the service before coming to medical school, living three of those years abroad. He completed his undergraduate work in Mathematics at Col- lege Park. Leon served as a note-taker in pre-clinical years and listed as his extracurricular activity “occasional ten- nis” — a mild understatement! PETER F. GODFREY Charity Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology New Orleans, Louisiana Pete did his undergraduate work at College Park where his major interests were Zoology and History. In his senior year there he met Kathy with whom he endured four years of commuting. They were married in February. Pete states that his main objective during medical school was “survival”, while trying to find time for his leisure time interests, namely bike riding, reading, and model ship building. He plans a career in Obstet- rics and Gynecology. 58 LYNDON KEITH GOODWIN William Shands Hospital Radiology Gainesville, Florida “Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that 1 may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved, as to love; For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.” — Prayer of St. Francis 59 MICHAEL SCOTT GORBACK Rhode Island Hospital Surgery Providence, Rhode Island Mike came to Maryland with a B.A. in Biology from Franklin and Marshall. He was a productive member of the Class of ’79 until his sophomore year, when he met and mar- ried a PLATO computer terminal, establish- ing the nation’s first computerized interstate pornography network. As a freshman, he dis- tinguished himself as the creator of the Mis- sissippi Mudfart in Hatnin’s notes. His hope for the future is to perform the first gall stone transplant. We wish him all the luck he deserves! BARBARA LEE GREEN Mount Zion Hospital Pediatrics San Francisco, California Barbara completed her undergraduate work at Stanford earning a B.S. in Biology. While at Stanford she was engaged in transplant immunology research and also lists waitressing among her activities prior to medical school. Barbara was involved in the Psychiatry tracking program, CAPP, during medical school and was a resident of the Charles Street household. She enjoys playing squash in her off hours and plans a career in Pediatrics. 60 JOYCE YUBITH GROSS University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “The last four years have gone by very rap- idly — there were a lot of good times and some very hard and stressful times. One of the better things about medical school was meeting and working with a lot of nice people, particularly my own classmates. We have all changed since orientation day; a lot of us are much less opti- mistic and have a harsher view of life, some of us have even become bitter. I hope that as we get out in the real world we will gain back some of the optimism and compassion that has been lost. I would like to thank my family for always being around when I needed their support (that’s my dad in the picture), and I wish every- one in the class a happy and healthy life. I hope all your dreams and goals are fulfilled.’’ ARTHUR STEPHEN HANSMAN Andrews Air Force Base Family Practice Washington, D.C. A native of northern Baltimore County, Steve did his undergraduate work at the University of Mary- land, College Park, where he received his B.S. in Zoology. He spent one year as a steel-worker at Beth- lehem Steel in Sparrow’s Point before entering medi- cal school on a U.S. Air Force Scholarship. Aside from his regular studies, Steve also found time to take the Aerospace Medicine Primary Course at Brooks A.F.B., Texas, and to complete two extern- ships in Internal Medicine. His favorite memories from the last four years include his wedding, the Laurel carpool, delivering his first baby, and com- pleting junior year. Steve says thanks to everyone who had a part in his medical education, and is espe- cially grateful to his wife, Janice, who together with the rest of his family and friends, kept him sane and in touch with the real world. 61 THOMAS BERNARD HAYWOOD University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Tom completed his undergraduate work at College Park earn ing a B.S. in Chemistry. His main non-academic inter- est is music and prior to medical school he was a member of several instrumental groups and performed in a concert tour of Europe. During medical school Tom was involved in a research project in membrane transport systems and also did a Family Practice Preceptorship. His future plans include a general medical practice and he is also attracted to the possibility of teaching. SCOTT JEFFREY HENDERSON Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Scott did his undergraduate work in physics at V.P.I. and then pursued gradu- ate training in Oceanography before com- ing to medical school. Four years ago he was on a ship in the North Atlantic doing geophysical research. Scott, or Scruffy as he was dubbed freshman year, plans a career in Internal Medicine. Married dur- ing junior year, he and his wife Lenore and their dog Sasha are lovers of snow and winter sports. Scott’s other joys in life include handball, hiking, music, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Vermont. 62 BARTON KENT HERSHFIELD University of Maryland Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland Bart is a native of Glenarm, Maryland who “drop- ped out” of Bucknell University after three years to begin medical school. He was surprised to find that his first experience in managing “chronic illness” was in caring for his Spitfire! Bart and Karen, a Kin- dergarten teacher and part-time EKG technician at Franklin Square Hospital, were married in April of 1979, and after Bart’s graduation they plan to live and practice in a small town or rural community in the Baltimore-Hartford Gounty area. CHARLES IVAN HIGHSTEIN Union Memorial Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Gharlie came to Maryland from Penn with a B.A. in Mathematics. He spent six months prior to medical school in Europe studying European Art history and etch- ing in Paris. In the pre-clinical years Char- lie did a Family Practice Preceptorship and was involved in the Freshman Follies production. His leisure activities include playing soccer, tennis, and running. Char- lie’s future plans include a private Otolar- yngology practice with a university affilia- tion. 63 JAN M. HOFFMAN Los Angeles County — USC Center Internal Medicine Los Angeles, California Jan transferred into our class as a junior having begun his medical studies in Guadalajara. He completed his undergradu- ate work at UCLA earning a B.S. in Biochemistry and was also involved in biochemical research at USC prior to coming to medical school. He found the clinical years with emphasis placed on the patients rather than on books far more rewarding than the basic science years. During leisure hours Jan enjoys scuba diving, photography, and sailing. He plans an Internal Medicine practice in Southern California. B. JEANNE HORNER Boston U. Affiliated Hospitals Psychiatry Boston, Massachusetts “In each man there is a priceless treasure that is in no other.” — A Hasidic wise man “With this premise and the sup- port of my family I began medical school and now, four years later, despite some occasional waning of my idealism (usually after my night on-call), it is with this prem- ise and their support that I begin my career as a physician. Hope- fully Psychiatry will allow me to explore those qualities we call human and help others to find the ’priceless treasure’ within them- selves.” 64 THOMAS D. HUDSON Walter Reed Hospital Radiology Washington, D.C. Tom was born and raised in the Washington suburban area. After graduating from Suitland High School where he was voted out- standing senior athlete, he attended Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tennessee. He was married in 1974 to his high school sweetheart and they now have a son, Bryan Matthew, born on October 30, 1978. Tom’s favor- ite memories of medical school are the Laurel carpool and their (non)attendance record, pinball, and junior Psychiatry. After grad- uation Tom will begin a Radiology residency at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. MICHAEL EUGENE HULL Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “Whatever I say here now. I’ll probably be dissatisfied with it when I look back upon it fifteen years from now. Maybe that’s as it should be. I wish to thank Wilson, Julie, and Khrista Hull, for my life and love; and my friends for sustaining me.’’ 65 JERRY BENSON HUNT University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland “When you strive your best to achieve a goal you have times of turmoil and times of sheer joy. One such joy was the good friends I’ve grown to know while conquering the Beast of Medicine.” DONNA G. HURLOCK Washington Hospital Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Washington, D.C. As a Psychology major at Duke University, Donna was elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa and graduated with honors, magna cum laude. She has been interested in the medical problems specifically of female patients since she began medical school. Her primary goal after graduation is to be the best Ob-Gyn doc around. 66 1 n f STEPHEN ROBERT IZZI ! University of Maryland Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland “I left Alexandria, Virginia at the age of seven and lived ! in Paris, France for five years, becoming fluent in French. I Back in the U.S., undistinguished high school and college ; careers led to a bunch of medical school rejections and so : I attempted to find a school abroad. The University of I Paris was the most logical choice. With this experience I ! put together enough of a substantial background to make s a serious attempt at a U.S. school and thus transferred I here in junior year. I am most grateful to my family and friends, whose encouragement enabled me to take this road, and to the people, teachers, and my fellow French medical students who helped me move along. Finally, my thanks to the University of Maryland whose wonderful members brought me to the threshold of my career.” EVELYN DIANE JACKSON University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “What a fine persecution — to be kept intrigued with- out ever quite being enlight- ened” — From: Rosencrantz and Guilderstein Are Dead Evie and husband Donald Burgy 67 ALBERT LAWRENCE JOCHEN Bronx Municipal Hospital Center Internal Medicine New York, New York A1 was born in Bellefountain, Ohio and came to Balti- more as a toddler. He started in medical school after grad- uating magna cum laude from UMBC with a degree in Chemistry. While in medical school he participated in research projects in Biochemistry and was elected to AOA in his junior year. Before medical school, Al’s hobbies were tennis and running, and it’s been an uphill struggle to keep them as hobbies! A1 plans to pursue a career in Inter- nal Medicine and eventually wants to practice in the Balti- more area. STEVEN LEON JOFFE Sinai Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Steve is a native of Washington D.C. who, prior to medical school, received his B.S. in Bio- chemistry from George Washington University. Medical interests were nurtured with work as an abortion counselor, a lab technician, and an emergency room technician. Steve’s hobbies include tennis, basketball, softball, and skiing, which he will hopefully be able to continue during a busy Ob-Gyn residency. 68 CAROLINE CARLSON JOHNSON Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Carole, or “C.C.”, is a native of Kingsville, Maryland and came to medical school after graduating from the University of Delaware with a B.A. in Biology. She is known for her wonder- ful memory and for her days as a field hockey player. Favorite extracurricular activities include tennis and jogging, her time with sports being balanced by her role as president of AOA in her senior year. Carole plans a residency in Internal Medicine and to eventually be involved in academic medicine and research. MARTIN FRANCIS JOYCE-BRADY Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Marty hails from Wilmington, Delaware and he gradu- ated from the University of Delaware in Biological Sci- ences prior to medical school. His wife, Jean Marie, is cur- rently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Maryland at College Park. Their wedding day will always be especially memorable; a Saturday in the middle of Marty s surgical rotation, with a Sunday honeymoon! Marty’s most desired possession is happiness and peace of mind, and these words from an old Irish Blessing should help in these pur- suits: “May the road rise to meet you, May the wind always beat your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again May God hold you in the palm of His hand. ” 69 JAMES KARESH Childrens Hospital Pediatrics Washington, D.C.

FREDERIC J. KAYE Mount Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine New York, New York Freddy is a native of Puerto Rico who came to medical school after graduating from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Natural Sciences. He distinguished himself in medical school by always talking to Radames in Span- ish and being elected to AOA. Freddy plans to do a resi- dency in Internal Medicine and perhaps a fellowship in Pulmonary Medicine. Some parting comments on medical school: “hard work, more friendly and less impersonal than I expected, the most exciting four years of my life . . . so far.” SCOTT M. KELLY University of California Surgery Los Angeles, California “I spent my undergraduate years at The Johns Hopkins University where I participated in academic societies, did research, and was a member of the diving team. I also worked as a toxicologist analyzing acute drug overdoses at the Johns Hopkins Hospital for one year. Medical school was filled with many events but I can give never enough thanks to my roommate, Dick, for soundly defeat- ing my old college friends who are at Columbia Med School and winning all the visors and free rounds at the Matterhorne Tavern, Stowe, Vermont.” ALAN LEE KIMMEL Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Alan grew up in Baltimore, went to Northwestern High and moved on to UMBC where he majored in Biology and graduated cum laude. He dis- liked the first two years of med school and greatly enjoyed the last two years — night call not with- standing. Interesting off-campus electives included Ophthalmology at the University of Oregon and at Johns Hopkins, Infectious Disease at Good Sam in Portland, and the ER at York Hospital. Career goals are firmly set: Family Practice? Ophthal- mology? Internal Medicine? Primary Care? Emergency Medicine? Alan will fondly remember Dr. Wood- ward’s unique manner in teaching: “way back when God was a little boy”, “do you hear rales in that x- ray, son?” and countless others. 71 BRUCE DAVID KOEHLER Lackland Air Force Base Internal Medicine Bexar, Texas Bruce came to medical school after receiving a B.A. in Economics from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Train collecting, tennis, and racquetball occupy his time when he is not studying (an effort which led him to membership in AOA). There will be two graduations in the Koehler family this year; Bruce from medical school, and his wife, Geri, from the University of Maryland School of Den- tistry. Bruce plans a private practice in Internal Medicine. MAX KOENIGSBERG Loyola University Affiliated Hospitals Surgery Maywood, Illinois 72 GLENN MICHAEL KOTEEN Medical College of Pennsylvania Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania “I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: to reach the port beyond, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it — but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes MICHAEL JOHN KOWALYSHYN Geisinger Medical Center Family Practice Danville, Pennsylvania Mike is a native of Columbia, Maryland and a graduate of Lehigh University with a B.S. in Biology prior to coming to medical school. He was always quiet, but it was the pronunciation of his last name that allowed him to escape questioning from Dr. Hall-Craggs at the Anatomy table. Much time has passed since then — and Mike now plans to do a residency in Family Practice and would like even- tually to be a primary care provider in rural Maryland. 73 “At least it doesn’t take four years to become a father” (Sonia and Chiam Moshe) BERNARD F. KOZLOVSKY Strong Memorial Hospital Radiology Rochester, New York “My famous last words from Sep- tember of ’75 thru May of ’79 were: ’I’ll never make it’, ’I quit’, ’I know nothing’, etc, etc. Instead, time does fly and perspectives change. After four long years and many memora- ble moments, medical school is over. I have finally decided to continue my training in Radiation Therapy. I defy statistics by being happily married and the father of a beautiful, healthy boy. My life is taking shape. What more can I say? Graduation certainly makes a great birthday present!’’ ELIZABETH ANN LAPOSATA Johns Hopkins Hospital Pathology Baltimore, Maryland “I feel very lucky to have the privilege to practice medi- cine and to make some real contribution to the well-being of others. I think I have received a rare opportunity.’’ 74 PERRI LYNNE LA VERSON University of Texas — Southwest Obstetrics-Gynecology Dallas, Texas Diploma: Opportunity, Challenge, Satisfaction . . .

RICHARD ALAN LEBOW Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Rich is a native of Baltimore who just hadn’t had enough of the city following graduation from College Park. He is probably remembered by most people as the emcee of both Freshman and Sophomore Follies. Rich reflects that the most pleasant part of medical school was the friendships that he developed during the stressful months of junior and senior rotations. Now that it is over, he comments that med school wasn’t so bad — but he doesn’t went to be re-incarnated as a medical student, that is, if there is a life after death! 75 OWEN LEE Indiana University Medical Center Radiology Indianapolis, Indiana Owen is a quiet guy who after working to obtain his degree in Biochemistry from College Park, liter- ally lived in Howard Hall the first two years of medi- cal school. He recalls that the experience of growing up in the “wild kingdom” of Burma has certainly helped him to survive the rigors of medical educa- tion. Owen says he became more civilized after his arrival in the States and like many other generations of Americans before him, he shared the same dreams and aspirations as the early immigrant. Many activi- ties are squeezed into Owen’s free time: Anatomy prosection, a Family Practice preceptorship, work in the Shock Trauma Unit, and he is a “weekend war- rior” in the Army Reserve. Owen is planning to do a residency in Diagnostic Radiology and possibly pur- sue a career in academic medicine. Someone asked him whether he wants to return to Burma to practice medicine and he said not until there are McDonalds, Ginos, Listerine, and Arrid Extra Dry available in Burma! ROBERT ALAN LEVIN Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Robert, a resident of Bethesda, Maryland, gradu- ated from College Park and began his medical train- ing at George Washington University. After one year, Robert just couldn’t pass up the great tuition rates so he transferred to our class! His outside interests include bicycling, tennis, theater, and dance. After completing his internship, Robert will start a resi- dency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilita- tion. Robert believes that medical care is not com- plete until a patient has been trained to live and to work with his remaining capabilities following dis- eases or injury — this is the essence of Rehabilitation Medicine. Robert would like to wish special good luck to his friend from first grade thru medical school, Jeff Schuldenfrei. 76 ZENA LEVINE Sinai Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Zena is known as one of the more progressive members of our class. She came to us from Case Western Reserve University with a B.A. in Sociology, magna cum laude. During the four years here, Zena found that it was quite stressful being around " medical people " all of the time and feeling isolated from the rest of the world — so she found diversions in skiing and being with her husband Stuart Goldberg; dentist, screen writer, and real estate developer. In addition to her Ob-Gyn residency, Zena will surely find time for the sun, surf, and snow, and urges us all to " go for it”. ROY CLIFFORD LEVITT Johns Hopkins Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Roy came a long way from his home in New York to medical school, stopping at College Park first for a B.S. degree in Chemistry. His pre-medical and medical career thus far has been highlighted by numerous research pro- jects at the NIH. Spare moments were spent skiing, jog- ging, and generally tinkering in the lab. With the growth of his research interests, Roy finds himself among the minds at The John in a residency in Internal Medicine, possibly followed by a Clinical Pharmacology fellowship. See you back in the lab, Roy! 77 SUSAN MARY LEVY Medical College of South C arolina Internal Medicine Charleston, South Carolina KWOK-CHEUNG LUKE LI George Washington University Radiology Washington, D.C. After years of wandering all over the East coast, K.C. and Yvonne came to Maryland for what turned out to be a four year stay. Set out to go into Cardiology, Oncology caught his fancy and a career in Radiation Therapy is in the works. Interns being on the salaried side of the training continuum, it finally dawned on K.C. to support Yvonne for a change. A Karen or a Michael is expected in mid-June, right before internship starts. Good timing! 78 BARBARA LOEVINGER University Hospitals Psychiatry Madison, Wisconsin ' ' Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it s been.”— The Grateful Dead, Truckin ' ‘‘Indeed the journey through medical school has neces- sitated and facilitated adaptations, changes, and tremen- dous personal growth. My thanks go out to fellow travel- ers Jay, Pam, Kathy, and Leo who have helped to make it all possible, worthwhile, and even fun. Next year I will return to my Alma Mater, the University of Wisconsin, in Madison, for a residency in Psychiatry and with anticipa- tion of sailing on Lake Mendota, skating, skiing, tennis, and time to pursue that eternal search for inner peace.” ERIC H. LOEVINGER Medical College of South Carolina Radiology Charleston, South Carolina “Medical school has taught me many things, most of which I never wanted to know about, and almost all of which I have since forgotten. On the bright side, it has allowed me to postpone any real career decisions for another three years, has introduced me to some of the most and least intelligent people I have ever met as well as my hopefully permanent mate, who is nearly perfect except for her choice of careers. In addition to all of this, I should eventually be issued my very own DBA number. In parting and passing flatus, my fondest regards to all of you, my greatest sympathies to those of you planning careers in Internal Medicine, and may none of us have to write such eulogies for a yearbook again.” 79 TIMOTHY JAMES LOW U.S. Army Flexible San Francisco, California Tim came to us from College Park with a B.S. in Zoology. He would like to thank his special someone, Geri Leo, a UMAB nursing student, who helped him keep his sanity through- out medical school and then married him in May of 1979. As a well deserved break from studies, Tim recalls the highlight of his past four years: going on a ski trip to Europe during junior year with Billy Becker, the flying priest. Tim plans to go into Radiology and may go to Korea for one or two years. EUGENIO SERGIO MACHADO Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Spouse and source of inspiration: Margaret Gook Machado. Activities: Weekend autopsy assistant at Saint Agnes Hos- pital and Alcoholism counselor at Tuerk House and at University of Maryland’s Emergency Room. Greatest accomplishment in medical school: Managed to limit Harry Sponseller to one night out per week during the first semester. Greatest hardship in medical school: Did most of junior rotations with Vernon Smith! 80 GEORGE S. MALOUF, JR. Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “I look back and remember how simple life used to be. I was born in Boston, and after moving around we settled outside of Washington D.C. 1 survived boyhood to finally attend college at Georgetown Uni- versity. My memories of Georgetown are happy ones, in spite of the pre-med life- style. In pursuit of a medical education, I enrolled in the “Harvard of the South” and, in retrospect, really enjoyed those two years in Guadalajara, Mexico. 1 mas- tered the Spanish language, learned the meaning of paranoia, developed a great suntan, and also a taste for exotic foods. In the summer of 1977 1 transferred into my junior year at U.M. and immediately became enchanted by this bustling metropolis. It was also that summer that 1 met a lovely woman, Grace, and after a whirlwind courtship, we were married. Becoming a doctor has been a lifelong ambition of mine and, in spite of the cir- cumscribed course, 1 have enjoyed getting here.” 81 RICHARD CHARLES MARSELLA Walter Reed Hospital Pathology Washington, D.C. Dick has the distinction of not only being the old- est member of our class but more importantly, he graduated with an M.D. and a Ph.D. in Microbiology from Maryland. Prior to coming to medical school, Dick was a virologist at the Walter Reed Army Medi- cal Center. He was involved in the Pathology track- ing program and served our class during junior and senior years as our representative to the Clinical Years Committee. Dick looks forward to a residency in Pathology and more time to enjoy his wife and children. BRUCE C. MARSHALL Strong Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Rochester, New York Bruce was a Phi Beta Kappa student at Johns Hopkins University, graduating in Natural Sciences before coming to medi- cal school. He spent two summers work- ing for the Smithsonian Institution at the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmen- tal Research and another summer as a mailman. Bruce is a sports enthusiast and also enjoys Center Stage and the Sym- phony in his leisure time. He has fond memories of Freshman and Sophomore Follies and his Grand Canyon vacation over spring break this year. 82 CRAIG RANDALL MARTIN Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Craig transferred into our class as a junior having begun med- icine studies at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara. He received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Emory University. Craig has a special interest in sports cars and was a member of the Sports Car Club of America and the Porsche Club of America. He was also halfback on the varsity football team at Guadalajara and starting halfback in the Mexican National All-Star game in Mexico City in ' 1974. Craig is inter- ested in an Internal Medicine residency with a Cardiology fel- lowship to follow. BRUCE RANDOLPH McCURDY Saint Agnes Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Bruce came to Maryland after gradu- ating cum laude from Penn in Biology, but not before he spent a year as an electrician, work he “really got a charge out of from time to time”. Bruce has a reputation for being a master of dead- pan, straight talk, truth-hurts humor and he positively affected the morale of many of us during those marathon studying sessions in the labs of Howard Hall. He reminisces: ”... Everyone had a stack of Path handouts two feet high, and ten empty coffee cups. I sat across from Art Bakal so long that I still see the reverse image of his face when I look at a blank wall. And there was Mike Smith, with 100 Path slides all in a pile on his desk. Gary Friedman never went home to shave. And don’t forget Polly, Steve Ioffe, and Doug Brunner — they were all hard core. Across the hall you could always find Ed Tsoy and Dave Prince writing all over the chalkboard. Suppose you had to do it all again?” 83 MELISSA ANNE McDIARMID Thomas Jefferson University Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Melissa completed her undergraduate work at UMBC, graduating cum laude in Biology. She spent her pre-clinical sum- mers as a student-fellow in Social and Preventive Medicine and was also a PLATO author for the OME. Putting her many talents to work, Melissa served as producer of both the Freshman and Soph- omore Follies. Her primary extra-curricu- lar activity is music (voice and playing banjo, guitar, and recorder). Melissa plans a career in academic medicine, possibly in developing countries. MARY CAROLYN McKAY Baylor College of Medicine Psychiatry Houston, Texas “I was born and raised on a farm in Southern Maryland, the middle child of a family of five. I came to Baltimore by way of College Park where I earned a B.S. in Biochemistry and incidently met my husband, David Martin Prett, who was working on a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering. We plan to make our permanent home in Houston, Texas where I have an internship in Psychiatry at Baylor College of Med- icine. I will probably go on to do a residency in Family Practice or Internal Medicine in the Houston area and eventually practice somewhere in Texas.” 84 WAYNE A. McWilliams University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Wayne is a native of the Baltimore area, having grown up in Reisterstown. His undergraduate years were spent at Western Maryland College in Westminister where he received his B.A. in Chemistry, Pre-Med. After spending two years at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Mexico, Wayne transferred back to Maryland, to our jun- ior class. In between medical school rotations he squeezed in his marriage to the former Janice Crews, a graduate of the University of Maryland Nursing School and R.N. at Union Memorial Hospital. Wayne plans to become a Urol- ogist, would like to eventually enter private practice in the Baltimore metropolitan area, and own a home and a car that he doesn’t have to coax to run every morning.

So, after my year at Mercy I’ll see many of you back at University where I’ll be beginning my Ophthalmology resi- dency in 1980. Best of luck to you all.’’ WALTER BRIAN MOORE Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Anesthesiology Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 86 SUNDAY JUNE MORGAN University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland Sunday and her husband Ken hail from Philadel- phia where they attended and graduated from Tem- ple University. Sunday’s decision to attend medical school came after; teaching school for three years, obtaining a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Maryland, and working as a psychoth- erapist for four years. She is one of the few who entered medical school knowing she wanted to be a psychiatrist and who is eagerly anticipating her resi- dency in Psychiatry. Other distinct ions Sunday enjoys includes being the most mature (35 years old) and the only Black female graduate in the class of 1979. Ken, who has made it possible for Sunday to graduate, is pursuing a doctoral degree in Health Administration. The Morgans plan to make a con- tribution to the health care of the underserved minority population in Baltimore.

He participated in the Family Practice Preceptorship Program in the summer after freshman year, and remembers junior medicine at the VA for more than scholastic reasons. Russell’s interests include tennis, photography, and especially casino gambling of which he says, “1 am one of the three or four finest blackjack play- ers in the country”.

NIGHOLS University of Tennessee Surgery Knoxville, Tennessee George began his medical studies at the Universi- dad Autonoma de Guadalajara and transferred into our class as a junior. Prior to medical school he worked as a tennis pro, sailing instructor, and a beach bum (self-admission). George’s most pleasant experience in medical school was being accepted at Maryland, which meant classes were in English and it was safe to d rink the water. Leisure time is spent with his wife Lucy and baby George and playing ten- nis, or course. George plans a future in Orthopedics. 89 ELEFTERIOS THOMAS NIKOLAIDIS William Shands Hospital Pathology Gainesville, Florida LINDA DIANNE OAKS University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Former lifeguard and barmaid . . . future obstetri- cian! . . You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you consider Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.” — Max Ehrmann Ted came to Maryland after completing undergraduate work at the Johns Hopkins University in Natural Sciences. Throughout his undergraduate years, Ted was involved in research at the BGRG and received a fellowship from the National Gancer Institute for Platelet Aggregation Studies in 1976. Ted plans to be married in August and will pursue a career in Pathology. He has found some meaning in these thoughts of Helen Keller: “It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks. To go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal. ” 90 WILLIAM FREDERICK OBRECHT Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Fred graduated from East Carolina University with a B.A. in Psychology and minors in Chemistry and Biology. In medical school he participated in the CAPP program and Human Dimensions in Medical Education. Fred found that his medical education has been more a process of acquiring a new way of approaching problems and does not give specific answers to specific problems, as we all would like! After graduation he worked at Springfield Hospital Center for four months and he plans to do an Internal Medicine residency with future sights set on group practice. YEONG HWAN OH Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Yeong was born and raised in Korea, and graduated from the Pai Chai High School in Seoul. He came over to the States in 1969 and graduated from College Park where he studied Electrical Engineering to earn his B.S. with high honors. Yeong is active in the Korean community and has put time into a Psychiatry fellowship and as an alcoholism counselor during his years here. Free time is enjoyed with volleyball and softball. Yeong would especially like to thank his family (that’s his Mom and Dad in the picture) and friends for their support. 91 LOUIS FRANCIS ORTENZIO, JR. United Hospital Center Family Practice Clarksburg, West Virginia Lou and his wife Sara didn’t wait for graduation, but moved to Clarksburg, settled on a quiet tree-lined street, and are expecting the first addition to the family. Follow- ing training, they hope to provide health care in rural West Virginia. MARK ALAN PARKHURST Prince Georges General Hospital Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland “How long you think that you can run that body down?” — Paul Simon “. . . and the slave doctors run about and cure the slaves . . . practitioners of this sort never talk to their patients individually or let them talk about their own individual complaints. The slave doctor prescribes what mere experi- ence suggests, as if he had exact knowledge, and when he has given his orders, like a tyrant, he rushes off with equal assurance to some other servant who is ill. But the other doctor . . . carries his inquiries far back, and goes into the nature of the disorder; he enters into discourse with the patient and with his friends, and is at once getting infor- mation from the sick man and also instructing him as far as he is able, and he will not prescribe until he has at first convinced him. If one of those empirical physicians, who practice medicine without science, were to come upon the physician talking to his patient and using the language almost of philosophy, beginning at the beginning of the disease and discoursing about the whole nature of the body, he would burst into a hearty laugh — he would say what most of those who are called doctors always have at their tongues’ end: Foolish fellow . . . you are not healing the sick man but educating him . . .” Plato 92 STEVEN HOWARD PEARLMAN New York Hospital Pathology White Plains, New York Steve completed undergraduate work at UMBC in Chemistry, graduating cum laude, prior to coming to medical school. His most pleasant medical school memories are Dr. Holden’s psychiatry lectures, sec- ond only to his marriage to Michele in December of our junior year. Honeymooning in Hawaii was also a memorable highlight. Both Steve and Michele enjoy tennis in their leisure time and hope to have enough time for it during Steve’s residency in Pathology. HOWARD NEIL POPKIN University of Maryland Obstetrics — Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland 93 DAVID SAMUEL PRINCE University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Before coming to medical school Dave com- pleted undergraduate work at UMBC, graduat- ing in Biology magna cum laude. Throughout medical school, Dave had a special interest in psychiatry which included his participation in the CAPP Psychiatry track program, the Tuerk House Alcoholism Program, and his work at the UMH Emergency Room as an alcoholism coun- selor. In leisure time Dave and his wife Beverly enjoy hiking and camping. Dave will probably best be remembered by all of us for his superb portrayal of Edson X. Albuquerque in the Sophomore Follies. Future plans after an Inter- nal Medicine residency include a two year com- mittment to the US Public Health Service. Dave hopes to spend that time on an Indian reserva- tion in the Southwest. JOSEPH ALAN RAPPAZZO Good Samaritan Hospital Internal Medicine Phoenix, Arizona “The Mind of Man is similar to that of the Beast in that it perceives and responds to stimuli from its environment. The Mind of Man is separate from that of the Beast in that f it continually tries to rationalize the expert- t ence it processes. It then organizes it, stores j it, synthesized it and propagates. The Man _ who accepts all and is barren of original thought might be revered by some for consistency, some for memory, some for efficiency, and some for reliability; but, he is no different than Beast. Both are terrestrially bound. The Man who learns from the teachings of others and personal obs ervations, and also questions and rejects is a Beast uprighted. If this Man has the patience to live within the confines of logic and order, the power to accept uncertainty and irrationality without fear or upset and the central inertia to create without compromise, then behold a Mind in balance: Spirit and Being, harmonious. For this Mind which can sense the intangible, and then employ reality to bridge the chasm between thought and fact is one to survive and evolve. It is the offspring of the union of inspiration and wis- dom, the fecund blessing of civilization and the ultimate salvation of Man, scientist and mystic.” JAR, Feb. 16, 1977 94 JOHN DAVID REEDER William Shands Hospital Pediatrics Gainesville. Florida Janet and John both attended Wake For- est UniversiW and have lived in Laurel since the beginning of medical school. Janet teaches third grade in Howard County. John intends to enter Pediatrics and they expect some practical experience soon, as their first child is due in August. “His intimate knowledge of the stupen- dous forces of nature, of her wonders and her miracles had impressed him with the fact that their ultimate origin lay far beyond the conception of the finite mind of man, and thus incalculably remote from the farthest bounds of science.” — from Tarzan at the Earth s Core. 1929 WILLIAM OWEN RICHARDS William Shands Hospital Surgery Gainesville. Florida Bill came to Maryland from Dickinson College where he graduated in Biology’. One of the all-round sportsmen of our class. Bill has fond memories of doubles tennis during pathology lectures and Sunday morning soccer. Clinical year highlights for him include his senior medicine rotation and a skiing vacation at Stowe. Bill plans a career in General Sur- gery and hopes to follow the Hippocratic dictum, “first so no harm”. 95 PETER ERNEST RORK University of New Mexico Surgery Albuquerque, New Mexico Peter graduated from Rutgers College in 1974 with a B.A. in the Biological Sciences. He came to the University of Maryland from the University of the East in Quezon City, Philippines, in 1977 for his clinical studies and plans a career in Orthopedic Surgery. He and his wife spend most of the non-hospital hours flying, skiing, or playing tennis. Having used a plethora of free airline passes, cour- tesy of his wife Kristen, the two have travelled extensively. They plan on settling somewhere in the U.S. Southwest. BRUCE ROSENBERG University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “In uncertainty I am certain that underneath their top- most layers of frailty men want to be good and want to be loved. Indeed, most of their vices are attempted short cuts to love. When a man comes to die, no matter what his tal- ents and influence and genius, if he dies unloved his life must be a failure to him and his dying a cold horror. It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world.” — John Steinbeck “See, I am living proof that an idealist can survive the medical school experience!” 96 MARK S. ROSENTHAL Vanderbilt University Surgery Nashville, Tennessee Mark completed his undergraduate education at UMBC grad- uating in Biology, before coming to medical school. He states that delivering babies was his most pleasant medical school experience. Mark’s leisure time interests include white-water canoeing and electronics. He plans a future in Orthopedics. ROBERT ALAN ROVNER University of California at Irvine Surgery Orange, California “My four years experience has been a source of frustration and reward, of tedi- ous memorizing and intellectual fulfill- ment, of humility and pride, and of insan- ity tempered by the understanding of my favorite Greek pharmacist and the com- panionship of my Bulgarian roommate. It was an opportunity to make many close friends, to drive across the country, to learn some Greek, to ski and play racquet- ball, to break 80 , and there was even some time to study medicine. Although entering medical school ambitious of becoming a blade, I have found hammers and saws to be more my speed, and so plan to continue on in Orthopedics with an eye toward a sub-specialty in Hand Surgery. My aspira- tions for the future? To play to a scratch handicap and to drive a Ferrari!’’ 97 ALBERTO SANT ANTONIO Mercy Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland GERALD JOHN SCALLION University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland 98 JEFFREY ALAN SCHULDENFREI Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Born and raised in the Washington D.C. suburbs, Jeff attended Walt Whitman High School and College Park. He was subsequently convicted of being pre-med and was sentenced to serve a minimum four years of his life in Bal- timore. Though elected to AOA, Jeff’s medical school years were perhaps most distinguished by his perform- ance with American Ballet Theatre on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage (Easter, 1977) with fellow classmate R.A.L. Jeff will begin a Dermatology residency in 1980 at University Hospital, following a year of medical intern- ship. Jeffs long term goals: to discover and patent the defi- nitive acne cure, to purchase the northern half of Norway, and to become artistic director of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. It’s astounding, time is fleeting. Madness takes its toll. But listen to me (not for very much longer). I’ve got to keep control.” — Riff-Raff RICHARD TAYLOR SCHOLZ Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Dick attended the Johns Hopkins University graduating in Humanistic Studies before coming to medical school. He states his memories of medical school include Dr. Lisansky’s final lecture before retiring as well as Freshman Follies and the sphygmomanometer demonstration. Dick’s junior Pediatrics rotation was his most pleasant and rewarding medical school experience. He plans a career in Ophthalmology, his residency beginning at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center following his internship in Internal Medicine. 99 ANTHONY MICHAEL SCIALDONE Mercy Hospital Surgery Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Prior to medical school, Tony graduated with high hon- ors in Zoology from College Park. Sanity was precious here in Baltimore and Tony achieved this goal by playing basketball and pinball with the guys, and reading, Tolkien being his favorite. Summers had both work and play: work as a public health analyst for the Consumer Public Safety Commission and travel to Italy in 1977. Tony cred- its his parents and his brother, Greg, with helping him over the rough spots and also remembers the sanctuary of George and Marg’s place. He will be going back to his birthplace for a year of General Surgery and then plans a residency in Neurosurgery. “Still round the corner there may wait a new road or a secret gate. And though I oft have passed them by, a day will come at last when I shall take the hidden paths that run west of the moon, east of the sun.” — J.R.R.

SIEGEL Baltimore City Hospitals Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Before coming to medical school, Dave graduated in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University in 1971. The fol- lowing year he travelled overland from England to India. He then worked with Federal Reserve Board computers in Watergate. During medical school Dave worked in a Family Practice preceptorship in Charlotte, Vermont, and as a senior worked for three months in the Behrhorst Clinic in Guatemala. Dave states that his avocation is building and sailing sail- boats while he also enjoys photography and “doing nothing”. RADAMES SIERRA-ZORITA Georgetown Veterans Hospital Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. Rad is one of the Puerto Rican members of the class coming to Maryland after beginning undergraduate stud- ies at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez and sub- sequently graduating magna cum laude in 1977. During medical school Rad participated in the Family Practice preceptorship program in a rural Puerto Rican commu- nity. He also completed elective rotations in Infectious Disease at the San fuan VAH and Rheumatology at the Robert B. Brigham Hospital in Boston. In his leisure hours. Rad enjoys photography, jazz, music, snorkeling, and trav- eling. Future plans for Rad include a medical residency in the U.S. and then a return to Puerto Rico to establish a practice on the island. 101 DENISE GAYLE SIMONS Denise spent a rewarding undergraduate career in Col- lege Park where she earned a B.S. with high honors in Zoology and Psychology and membership in Phi Beta Kappa. Coming to medical school with high expectations and considerable zeal, she soon found these .crushed by back-to-back lectures presenting mountains of minutae to be memorized. After completing much of her junior year, she took a year’s leave of absence to sort out her educa- tional goals. During medical school and her year off, she worked on PLATO, a computer based educational system. Denise has medical school to thank for introducing her to many close friends and for memories such as two succes- sive nights on call in medicine during the “blizzard of ’79”. Still uncertain as to what she will do after graduation, she is interested in medical education of both medical person- nel and the patient population.

University of Alabama Medical Center Internal Medicine Birmingham, Alabama ' DOROTHY ANN SNOW University of Maryland Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland 103 HARRY L. SPONSELLER University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland “During medical school, many rewarding friendships developed earning me several nicknames, nota- bly ’Coach’. Activities were numer- ous and varied, including escapades in Washington, a preceptorship in Colorado, medicine in Alaska, and several rowdy Thursday nights at the Pub. Hopefully these experiences will produce a more well-rounded physician.” KEVIN BRIAN ST. JOHN Andrews Air Force Base Family Practice Washington, D.C. Kevin was born and raised in the Baltimore area. He traces an interest in medicine to his mother, a R.N., and relatives who were physicians. Kevin attended College Park as an undergraduate and com- pleted a pre-med course of study with a B.S. in Psy- chology. He and Debbie met at College Park and were married in the summer after Kevin’s freshman year of medical school. Debbi has worked on her Ph.T. as a credit authorizer since then but soon has plans to take up her chosen career as a homemaker. Upon graduation they will be moving to Andrews AFB where Kevin faces a residency in Family Prac- tice followed by four years of active duty. Kevin’s favorite thought is one from Blaise Pascal; ’’There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man that He alone can fill”. Debbi and Kevin are both grateful to God for giving meaning to their lives, bringing them to one another, and leading in every major decision touching their lives. 104 POLLY STEINBERG Sinai Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland NELSON NEAL STONE University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Neal came to Maryland via the Autonomous University of Guadalajara and Connecticut College where he gradu- ated cum laude in Chemistry. In looking back, he remem- bers Surgery as his most rewarding rotation and Dr. Woodward’s marathon conferences after a night on-call as the most stressful. Neal is also unable to forget his two year living experience in a third world country. He plans a career in academic GU Surgery. 105 MARY LYNNE STRACKE Baltimore City Hospitals Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Mary came to medical school every day Avith the Laurel carpool in our pre-clinical years (well, not really every day). Prior to her carpooling days she was ' a Phi Beta Kappa student at College Park where she received an undergraduate degree in Physics and a graduate degree in Zoology. Mary’s summer activities involved projects in Transplant Immunology at the NIH. She is probably best remembered for her “expletives deleted” comments about life at the “U” and the VA! Mary plans to make her medi- cal mark in Internal Medicine. SUSAN THOMSON STRAHAN University of Maryland Psychiatry Baltimore, Maryland Susan entered medical school by a slightly delayed but interesting route. Graduating from Hollins College located in Virginia’s Blue Ridge mountains, she went on to take graduate science courses at Duke University. The follow- ing year was spent at George Washington University where she received a M.S. in Forensic Science (sort of like Quincy and FBI work). Saturated with formal education, Susan went to seek her fortune in Atlanta, Georgia where she worked in the Anesthesia research department at Emory’s School of Medicine during which time she was accepted into medical school. Her most memorable expe- riences have been Dr. Holden’s psychiatry lectures and the day during her Forensic Psychiatry elective when she was called into the courtroom to calm a hysterical witness. Also, Susan felt it important to find time for extra-curricu- lar activities such as tennis, golf, and skiing as well as pho- tography and traveling. Future plans include pursuing Psychiatry, concentrating in the area of adolescent and family therapy, with some Forensic Psychiatry on the side! 106 MAURA JEAN SUGHRUE University of Florida — Alachua General Family Practice Gainesvill e, Florida “See you in the sun!” JOHN TAYLOR SYMONS Altoona Hospital Family Practice Altoona, Pennsylvania “Every so often I realize with a jolt that I not only got accepted into medical school but that I’m actually becoming a physician. The past four years have gone quickly and have been filled mostly with good experiences. At the same time. I’m ready for a change and ready to start a Family Practice residency. As native Easternshoremen, my wife Sherry and I are looking forward to the day when we re-establish perma- nent residence on Maryland’s lower Eastern Shore. I’m anx- ious to become a country doctor and receive eggs and turnips in return for services rendered.” 107 DAVID BRIAN TAPPER Williamsport Hospital Family Practice Williamsport, Pennsylvania “Martha and I look forv ard with great anticipation t o the move we will be making. I will be going into Family Practice and hope to work in a small commu- nity where I can become involved in public health education as well as private practice. Originally being from the Chicago area, I came to Maryland to attend fohns Hopkins University. I plan on returning to practice in the upper midwest, where my wife intends to practice general law and the two of us can raise a family.” WILLIAM TARR fohns Hopkins Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Bill came to medical school via a circuitous route stopping on his way at fohns Hopkins Uni- versity and College Park for graduate studies in Microbiology. Bill was Tzar of the note service in sophomore year and is personally responsible for the graduation of countless members of our class. Undaunted by the headaches he endured running the note service. Bill served as Student Council President in 1977-78. In his spare time, he attended class. Bill, we owe you much and wish you well at The John. 108 JAMES ALLEN TEGELER York Hospital Flexible York, Pennsylvania Jim is one of the secret celebrities of our class. It seems that while at the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, where he began studying medicine, his true identity became known to his classmates. Because it is Mexican practice to add the mother’s maiden name to the paternal family name, Jim became James Allen Tegeler Kirk, but a registrar’s error yielded James T. Kirk on the class roster and a star was born. The Captain began his American “enterprise” joining our class in junior year and assimi- lated quite well. Jim is a private pilot and enjoys flying, music, and woodworking in his off-duty hours, one of his goals being to earn enough so he can afford to be a cabinet maker! Jim is undecided about future plans but will begin with a flexible internship at York. LAWRENCE EDWARD TILLEY Johns Hopkins Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Larry was a Phi Beta Kappa student at the Johns Hop- kins University, graduating in Biology, before coming to Maryland. Although on the shy side, Larry was generous with his time and served as Vice-president of the Student Council during Bill Tarr’s term as President. Unable to break up this dynamic duo, Larry will join Bill at The John for Ob-Gyn training. 109 ELIZABETH TSO University of Maryland Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland What can we say about Betty, except how would we have muddled through without her? Before com- ing to Medical schoo l to take care of all of us, Betty completed undergraduate work in Psychology at College Park. Betty was class Secretary-Treasurer for three years. Editor of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Newsletter, one of the most prolific ghost writers for both Freshman and Sophomore Follies, as well as general all-around contact person for the class. We are grateful to Betty for all she has done and we wish her well. She adds, “My graduation is the definitive proof that God is good. To daddy, mami, and Paul, thank you for your love and support.” EDWARD ANDREW TSOY Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. “Although the study of medicine can be enjoyable, we con- stantly run the risk of becoming one-dimensional people. The amount of material, intensity of training, and level of anxiety can easily dominate our lives and cause us to lose our perspec- tive. It is important not to allow our medical commitments stop us from experiencing variety in our lives and from taking at least some time to relax and reflect.” “A little lovin’ keeps the doctor away.” — Disco lyric no STEVEN WILLIE TUCKER Saint Agnes Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland “In anyone’s life, ’significant others’ always constitute the most lasting and enduring rewards and triumphs and I’m no exception. I’d like to thank them now. My parents were my beginning and a constant source of love and inspiration. My father passed when 1 was a freshman at Harvard but his love is always with me. My mother has always provided the love and reassurance that 1 needed to solve my problems. My grandmother has also been a source of love and fortunately financial assistance when needed. As she has said before, she has and will be my ’bridge over troubled waters’. 1 will always need my fam- ily. The many people who constitute the McDonogh fam- ily are also important in the formation of my career. 1 became a man at McDonogh and the educational benefits of that school have helped me well into my medical school experience. Of course. Harvard was an ’experience’ I’ll never forget. Finally, but foremost in my heart is the love of my wife, Patricia, and my daughter. Tiffany, and of course the love 1 have for my creator, who makes all things possible. For the others I have not mentioned, 1 love you, and thanks.’’ REBECCA R. UMBACH Childrens Hospital of Akron Pediatrics Akron, Ohio 111 THOMAS ARTHUR VINCENT Union Memorial Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland After graduating in Zoology from College Park, Tom came to Baltimore for two things: to start medical school and to lift weights. There was a vicious rumor circulating during our first two years that Tom ran the Baltimore Union’s Jack LaLane salon. This rumor proved to be unfounded but it is true that Tom met another Union resi- dent, Richelle, during his stay there and she later became his wife. Tom would like “to wish Arthur, Melissa, Evie, and Betty the best of luck in their future endeavors, and the same to Pete and Russell who have been friends since high school.’’. THOMAS BURKART VOLATILE Grady Memorial Hospital Surgery Atlanta, Georgia The Eastern Shore sent Tom to Baltimore via Atlanta where he studied Chemistry at Emory. Probably one of the more well-known and well-liked members of our class, Tom organized the freshman note-taking service and was also a summer Anatomy instructor. Tom worked his way through school as a Respiratory Therapist and in his lei- sure hours is an ardent hunter and fisherman. He looks forward to an Orthopedics practice on the Eastern Shore. 112 JERALD AUSTIN WARD Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Jerry and Pam JOHN HEBNER WEIGEL University of Maryland Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland Born in Baltimore, John returned to his native city after four happy years at North vsrestern University. In addition to the usual medical school routine, he worked part-time as an alcoholism counselor and took part in various ath- letic and social functions. Included in the latter were several infamous parties on Jasper Street. It was at one of these that John was lucky enough to meet Linda Bauer, who will become Linda Weigel on June 9th following graduation. John’s current plans call for a three year resi- dency in Internal Medicine with a future career in private or group practice. John, Linda, and Max 113 STUART WIENER Wayne State University Internal Medicine Detroit, Michigan 114 SAMUEL RICHARD WILLIAMS Saint Agnes Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Sam graduated from the Johns Hopkins University where he was Assistant Director of the JHU tutorial pro- gram for underprivileged inner city children, the organi- zer and director of a tutorial program for undergraduates in academic difficulty, and Chairman of the JHU Black Student Union. Across town, in medical school, Sam has participated in numerous research projects. Supported by Dean’s Fellowships, Sam conducted research on the role of the physician and nurse in drug abuse programs in Maryland and worked at a halfway house for alcoholics. In addition, Sam worked at the OME reviewing the medi- cal teaching aids of the faculty as well as the medical pro- grams on the school’s computer system. The Student National Medical Association also benefitted by Sam’s experience. Sam’s wife Anita is an elementary school teacher for the Baltimore County Public School System and they both delight in their son, Sam Jr. Sam plans to remain in Baltimore for his residency in Pediatrics. OWEN MARK WOLKOWITZ Stamford Hospital Psychiatry Stamford, Connecticut “After spending several summers prior to medical school working for the NIMH, I determined to train as a research psychiatrist. While in medical school I continued my research interests which resulted in several publica- tions, and participated in the Combined Accelerated Pro- gram in Psychiatry. Before my junior year, I travelled cross-country with classmates Dave Prince and Bruce Rosenberg. I loved the west coast and plan on doing my residency in California (I hope), followed by a clinical practice combined with psychiatric research.’’ 115 ARTHUR WOODWARD, JR. University of Maryland Surgery Baltimore, Maryland 1 entered medical school after graduating from Duke in 1973, in the interim spending one year in the Duke E.R. and another at the U. of M. Dental School. The first two years were spent living in the Student Union, and the second year was, without a doubt, the most miserable time of my life. If I was faced with it again I would probably stay in den- tal school! The clinical years as for most everyone were completely enjoyable. There were many good teachers, but the man I learned more from than anyone is the same man that I will be trying to emulate for many years — my father. By the way, I have been asked to state for posi- tively the last time that I am not related to Uncle Teddy ... I mean Dr. Theodore Woodward.” HAROLD RUSSELL WRIGHT, JR. Union Memorial Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Russ came to Maryland after studying for B.A. degrees from both The Johns Hopkins (1966) and UMBC (1974). Between degrees he spent five years in the U.S. Army Sig- nal Corps, attaining the rank of Captain, and spending IV 2 years in Vietnam. After coming home he returned to school for subjects requisite to getting into Maryland. While in medical school, Russ was awarded a Dean’s Fel- lowship and did research with Dr. Huang in Pediatric Immunology. He was a member of the Pediatric Tracking Program. His extracurricular activities included serving as President of the AMSA chapter for two years and contin- ued active participation in the National Guard of Mary- land. Russ is married and he and his wife, Judy, have one son — Sandy. Russ plans to do a one year internship in General Surgery, go to Johns Hopkins for Otolaryngology, and eventually hopes for a private practice in the Balti- more area. 116 YAEL YOKEL Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Probably the most difficult thing about getting to know Yael was learning how to pronounce her name. She came to Baltimore from College Park where she was a Phi Beta Kappa student and graduated in Biochemistry. In looking back, Yael’s concept of medical school before she began was that of “a class of con- servative people spending their lives studying”. Now she says however, she found it to be ‘‘a bunch of nor- mal, crazy people spending their lives studying”. She also adds that her most memorable experience dur- ing the past four years was having Max for a roommate. That’s under- standable! ERIK BRIAN YOUNG Georgetown University Obstetrics-Gynecology Washington, D.C. Erik graduated at College Park with a degree in Bio- chemistry. Noted for having a hand into everything, he served on the Student Council, the Year 11 committee, and arranged a bash of a Senior Banquet. Erik plans to con- tinue his education with flying and sailing lessons while a resident in Ob-Gyn at Georgetown. Married just after graduation, he and Suzanne plan to live in suburban Washington. 117 KRISTEN ANNE ZARFOS Yale New Haven Medical Center Surgery New Haven, Connecticut Kris came to Baltimore from Smithsburg, Maryland, and Hood College where she graduated summa cum laude in Biology. Of the past four years Kris says, . . there have been many interesting experiences and people as well as trying ones. But in all. I’m glad I was here . . .” Kris contin- ued that she has learned from Charlotte Whitton, “what- ever women do, they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily this is not difficult.” As for the future, Kris feels Emerson is appropriate: “. . . Nothing is at last sacred But the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to yourself, and you Shall have the suffrage of the world.” GERALD NORMAN ZUBKOFF Hospitals of the University Health Center Pediatrics Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania lerry, a most articulate and respected class member completed undergraduate work in History at Cornell before coming to Maryland. In our pre-clinical years, Jerry served as a note-taker, producing some of the most well organized and explicit medical treatises that were never delivered in the lecture hall. He also served as a student member of the Judicial Board. Jerry plans a career in Pediatrics. 118 I would wish the young practitioner, especially to have deeply impressed on his mind, the real limits of his art, and that when the state of his patients gets beyond these, his office is to be a watchful, but quiet spectator of the operations of nature giving them fair play ...” (Thomas Jefferson to Dr. Caspar Wistar, 1807) THE PRE-CLINICAL YEARS FRESHMAN CURRICULUM First Semester, 1974-75 ' V Wee k 19 i2:| 3:00- Biochemistry DNA Dr. Black Gross Anatomy Orbital Cavity Root of Neck; Junctional Region of Thor UpperLfimbs J rt (X o ' u 3 H o a o I i C nj u 2-0 S C4 QQ C 0 : a Q 6 “ m 2 ? a 11 11 Biochemistry DNA Dr. Black Corr.

They have given me the chance to begin to partici- pate in the lives and deaths of all kinds of people. This chance to feel intense moments with our patients lets us begin to face our own mortality. There is only a thin line between us and the patients and this awesome thought sometimes causes us to be glib and cavalier, revealing our position as fledglings.” -Joanne Blum, Class of 1979 126 h BUtl First listen, my friend, and then you may shriek and bluster. ” -Aristophanes 129 " Well, at least I enjoyed two days of my vacation.

That I will lead my life and practice my art in uprightness and honor. That into whatsoever house I shall enter it shall be for the good of the sick. To the dtmost of my power I hold myself aloof from wrong, from corruption, from the tempting of others to vice. That I will exercise my art solely for the cure of my patients, and will give no drug, perform no operation, for a criminal purpose, even if solicited, far less suggest it. That whatsoever I shall see or hear, I will keep inviolably secret. These things I do promise and in proportion as I am faithful to this, my oath, may happiness and good repute be ever mine, the opposite if I shall be forsworn.” 141 ACADEMIC HO SUMMACUMLAUDE Caroline Carlson Johnson MAGNA CUM LAUDE Daniel Scott Finelli Scott Douglas Friedman Albert Lawrence Jochen CUM LAUDE Adam Scott Blacksin Joanne Lorraine Blum Lois Marie Conn Frederic Joseph Kaye Harlan Frederick Weisman FACULTY GOLD MEDAL for Outstanding Qualifications for the Practice of Medicine Caroline Carlson Johnson THEFAMBiYP UNIVERSITY OF MAR acadekIyowami for Excellent in Tfal ' Family J Robert Au THE DR Wl MOND AWARD ’ LEY PRIZE atrics er THE D ALDER SCHOLARSHIP AWARD utstanding Academic Achievement Scott Douglas Friecknan THE DR.

STUDENT EDITOR Dear Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to ask a small favor, but first let me introduce myself. My name is John MacKenzie and I am presently incarcerated at the Clinton Coreectional Facility located in Dannemora, New York. Due to these circumstances, the people I knew best and loved the most chose to adhere to that old cliche, " out of sight, out of mind " thus making my existence here lonely and meaningless. In order to alleviate the feeling of emptiness, I was wondering if you could publish this letter so that I might be able to reach the sincere and open minded altruist I know are out there. KIRBY’S CARRY OUT Open 6AM to 3PM Monday thru Friday 410 West Redwood Street Baltimore, Maryland 21201 539-9268 I can only add that aside from my age, (mid twenties) my inter- est and hobbies vary but are too numerous to list. My interest are only second to finding concerned people who are genuinely interested in the human heart, and who could give me the moral surport needed as well as the ornortunity to correspond to the Free V orld.... It is my fervent hope that you will understand and appreciate my request. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kindness and understanding and m.ay all your goals and dreams remain within your reach. Illliill iimiiiiiiii »»••••• II
