Ci ; sic ] 65 THE 1980 yearbook staff, as a service to our medical colleagues, decided to review the various options available for chowing down while on duty in the citadels of medical care in Baltimore. For this monumental task, the services of “Ptomaine” Trinh and “Big Mac” Maggin were solicited. As these two well known connoisseurs of fine junk food soon discovered, taste testing in hospitals is an area with few devotees. Nonetheless, they persisted and the end result is worthy of consideration by the Pulitzer Prize committee. Later medical students may benefit from reviewing this guide prior to selecting their junior rotations. Highlighting is permitted. DINING OUT MEDICALLY TIPS FOR GASTRONOMIC SURVIVAL MERCY. Of all the options available for hospital dining in Charm City, Mercy comes closest to con- sistently serving edible food. At first glance, the diner is faced with a dingy dining area reminiscent of a Howard Johnsons. Around the corner, there is a separate, even dingier physicians dining area. But, not to worry. They serve a large variety of food with multiple options (fish always available on Fridays) such that even the most particular diner can find a meal to his liking. The more sophisticated Mercy patron is aware that frozen yogurt, hidden from view, may be requested from the staff. These people are very protective of their yogurt and a good rap- port with them reasonable: free up to a set limit. However, unlike Maryland General, this limit is strictly enforced. This reporter can attest to several instances when, while innocently standing at the checkout counter, a sadistic grin appeared on theface of the cashier as she said, “That’ll be six cents, please Woe to the poor student lackinin funds. Our final judgment: a very satisfactory place to eat. (A word of caution: the average medical student gains 5 to 10 pounds during a six week sojourn here.) LEXINGTON MARKET. From burritos to burgers, peanuts to pound cake, a food lover’s delight. Oh yes, look out for the Giant Mondoo! Definitely the most varied lunch time trip while at University. An ab- solute must; also a city landmark. Distinctive facade in stylish area of town. SINAI. Not a major University of Maryland af- filiate, perhaps because our course planners have eaten here. The food is outrageously overpriced and deserves to sit on their rotating dispensers. See ’ " Brown Bagging It. ’ Mercy dining room with plastic flowers. THE GENERAL. A step above the colonel, Maryland General offers all the food you can eat for free and usually decent in quality. The mean annual temperature in the dining room, however, hovers at the 95 degree mark. Don ' t miss the tacos! The busy staff at the General. UNION MEMORIAL. If they didn ' t give you meal tickets to partially compensate the cost, this sparkl- ing new cafeteria would definitely be overpriced. Highlights include the do-it-yourself sandwich counter (cold cuts, cheeses, tuna), the salad bar (fair- ly complete; even with bean sprouts), and the soup bar. On Fridays, you can load your tray with all you can eat and get it free. The password is “I m going to conference.’’ Sometimes, it’s even worthwhile to ac- tually attend the conference. Usually, however, it’s rather difficult to hear the speaker above the noises of everybody eating. Occasionally, somebody passes out from food overdose. 67 THE VA. Keeping in mind the motto of the Head Chef, “It’s good enough for the vets,” one should approach dining at the VA with caution. The stan- dard fare usually consists of a dish of overcooked peas, white nutrition-free bread wrapped in clear plastic, another item of unknown origin, and the main entree wrapped in foil — all delightfully ar- ranged on a pea -green tray. If the adventuresome diner is in luck, he may have arrived on “specialty nite” when the kitchen staff has prepared the house favorite: Liver a la VA. There is a pleasing visual ap- pearance to the meat as the neon bulbs overhead are reflected back from the liver by an iridescent film of blues, greens, and reds. If the diner is observant, hepatic lobules and portal triads may be discerned without difficulty. It has been reporte that Dr. Iber requires the residents to sample this dish so as to bet- ter appreciate the gross appearance of hepatic pathology as well as the clinical presentation of acute gastroenteritis. The cost can only be described as overpriced. “But”, you may ask, “is not dinner free of charge to those on call?” Yes, but in all fairness. Uncle Sam should be required to pay the diner to ex- perience eating at the VA. Atmosphere can quite ac- curately be described as Early Government Warehouse. Our final judgment: an experience worth avoiding. Who is Kirby anyway? KIRBY’S. A short jaunt from the UMH lobby is Kirby’s, a popular lunchtime stop for hospital employees. It offers the typical sandwich fare with reasonably efficient service. If you are doing a rota- tion like ambulatory, radiology, or psychiatry, there are tables and chairs for that lunch break. If you are doing medicine or surgery, the short trip at least allows one to enjoy a few fleeting moments of sunshine. Why would anybody wait for this food? THE U. The primary advantage of this place is its fine location. Situated between the rotunda and the Psych Institute on the first floor of University Hospital, the proprietors could not have asked for a more favorable spot for this rather seedy establish- ment. It is always crowded with long lines and strange people, and has little to offer in the way of hot food. In its favor, we must mention the very reasonably priced delly bar and the cheapest Cokes west of the Chesapeake Bay. (Thanks to the tax- payers.) Also, the availability of a No Smoking area is a decided plus. Our final judgment: The BLT at 55 fc and a Coke is a steal. THE PENN. A short hike from the U, the Penn is frequented by fellow health professionals and local low-life. The food purports to be homemade (not at my home) and the prices are reasonable. Stick to the Veal Parmigiana. On the corner of One Way and One Way. 68 C J L c6is , S 0C b WOOSH wav «o£ H£t you ??

THE STUDENT UNION. As a half hearted attempt at creating a campus hangout, the only redeeming feature of the Student Union cafeteria is the usually entertaining lunchtime melange of nursing, medical, and graduate students. The food is at best tolerable. Yes, inflation is here and biting at your wallet. It is also biting at the steak subs. They must have bought microtomes from the Path department to prepare the “steak” slices. In a nutshell, go elsewhere to tide your tastebuds. KERNANS. Not to be missed! Free food actually served to you at your table. Where else can you get a really good bowl of Mulligatawny soup? THE VENDING MACHINES. These ubiquitous monstrosities are another alternative but are not worthy of discussion in a food review. M ore fearsome than Godzilla. SOUTH BALMER. This hospital cafeteria offers its patrons a quaint, pastoral view of Baltimore’s har- bor. The food served here has an almost stifling bland quality about it, quite appropriate for peptic ulcer patients. The rest of us risk tastebud atrophy. The kitchen specialty is rice: white rice, wild rice, brown rice, pilaf, even rice pudding. The desserts are equally as varied: green Jell-0, red Jell-0, Orange Jell-0, yellow Jell-0, Jell-0 with fruits, even Jell- 0 with lettuce. (The cafeteria manager must own stock in the General Foods Corporation.) Nonetheless, the price is right: free to those wearing a SBGH identification badge. BROWN BAGGING IT. This practice is highly recommended as you can eat what you want, the price is very reasonable, and you have nobody else to complain to except yourself or possibly a “significant other.” Best bet. IN CONCLUSION. Although Baltimore has a reputation for fine cuisine, for certain, none of it can be found in the area hospitals. We feel that the price rather than food quality is a more important factor in deciding which hospital cafeteria to patronize. You are reminded that the above evalua- tions are based on the strict criteria of personal whim. The editors claim no responsibility for ac- curacy. The discriminating diner is welcome to sam- ple local hospital cuisine at his own risk. Bon appetit! 70 " E) l X r " T5 jt! 8o for o vws. 4 o lo g ck vr jor I ocWo rceCt A is A WOU Idt -yv ffice.

Pete Stamas CLASS OF 1980 81 BRADLEY MILTON AIKEN Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native of Baltimore, Brad attended Boston University before undertaking his medical endeavors. He found time while in college to do some research in biochemistry as well as spending a summer in France at the College International de Cannes. Brad’s outside interests include basketball, tennis, softball, playing guitar, dating, and cultivating his horticultural talents. He plans to do his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “Some people see med school as they think it is, and say why not? I see med school as it really was and say why?” DAVID CHARLES ALLEN Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Dave graduated from Penn State and worked as a tissue typer for the American Red Cross prior to his medical school career. His free time here was often occupied by sleeping, jogging, camping, picking up class notes, and listening to music. For unexplained reasons, “five inches of medical records” is Dave’s favorite sign in the clinical world. In response to queries about our many outstanding professors, he can only respond “Who were they?” After his Inter- nal Medicine residency, Dave plans a cardiology fellowship and a private practice somewhere in the Baltimore -Washington area. ROBERT CHARLES AMMLUNG Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Bob never turned in a completed yearbook questionnaire and our private detectives were unable to obtain much information about him. We were able to piece together, however, that he is a nice guy and has a good sense of humor. We were also able to verify certain activities he did not engage in: he was never a movie star, he never ran for the U.S. Senate, and he was never an astronaut during his four years of med school. Further reports will be published as new information trickles in. 82 MICHAEL ROBERT ANSHER University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native of Silver Spring, Mike completed his undergrad studies at College Park. His most unpleasant experience of medical school occurred very early when the freshman class was brutally assaulted with gross and microscopic anatomy exams on the same day. In his spare time, he enjoys numerous sports, tropical fish, and coin col- lecting. In addition, his attendance record at the numerous parties of the past few years can only be rated as excellent. Mike, himself, admits that his favorite diseases are hyperthyroidism and peptic ulcer. ROBERT RAY ARTWOHL University of Maryland Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Bob, one of the more prominent class wits, is reportedly descended from Hungarian nobility thus earning the infrequently used nickname of “Count”. Way back in freshman year, he directed the class note service and was also the prime organizer of The Student Af- fair. Amongst his many talents is the guitar playing which many of us have heard on various occasions. Unsurpassed is his imitation of a cer- tain Brazilian pharmacologist. For more details about his life, you will have to await the eventual publication of his biography. UMUR MEHMET ATABEK University of Maryland Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland This Catholic University engineering graduate rather suddenly (and surprisingly) found himself attending med school some time in 1976. For four years, he served as class treas urer and managed to embezzle aboslutely nothing. The more enjoyable moments of med school were those spent goofing off. The two Follies were par- ticularly nice as they provided an organized conduit for his creative energies. When confronted about the yearbook, he tends to run and hide. 83 MEHTAP F. ATAGUN University of Maryland Hospital Obstetrics - Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland “Thanks to my quick witted friends with whom I shared the most precious moments of medical school: those spent in laughter.” MARK E. BAINUM University of Hawaii Surgery Honolulu, Hawaii Who can forget Mark’s fabulous penthouse parties during those hectic preclinical years? Mark graduated from the Southern Mis- sionary College in Tennessee before coming to Baltimore. He and his pretty wife, Elaine, spent their honeymoon on an around-the- world cruise. While at UMAB, he served as class Vice-President, student council representative, and AMSA representative at regional meetings. His fondest memories will always be those of Freshman Follies and the party that ensued. He also has dear memories of the megahours spent on PLATO playing Dungeons and Dragons. MELVIN ARTHUR BAYNE Georgetown University Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. After graduating from Catholic University in Washington, D.C., Mel trained to become an Air Force pilot and served his country in Vietnam. Amongst classmates, he will always be remembered for running the note service during sophomore year. (He won’t forget it either; it was his worst experience.) Outside the classroom, Mel en- joys handball, squash, jogging, bridge, and poker (not for money, of course.) His wife, Susan, works with the Pregnancy Aid Centers and is an aerobic dancing instructor. After his residency, Mel plans to join a group practice in a nonurban environment. 84 BARBARA WEI BELL Thomas Jefferson Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania While a student at William and Mary College, Barb spent her summers doing research on sheep ovaries and rooster sperm. (Was she trying to breed a sheep that lays eggs or a chicken that grows wool?) She spent four weeks traveling in Europe before coming to med school. Here, she met her husband Lou, “the phantom diner on evening magazine.” Barb leaves her thanks to the Drs. Hall-Craggs for their support during the first two years. On the other hand, she leaves the opinion that Edson X. Albuquerque should not be allow- ed to teach medical school. Barb warns future med students: “You had better think over what you are committing yourself to.” LOUIS MARTIN BELL, JR. Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital Pediatrics Philadelphia, Pennsylvania While a Hopkins pre-med, Lou spent his summers as a scrub tech at the Loch Raven V.A. During medical school, his free time was dominated by basketball — until he met his wife, Barb, “waitress on the late shift at Howard Johnson’s in Towson”. Lou’s best memory of med school is finishing, at last, the final two years. He expresses his appreciation for those professors that liked to teach and did not con- sider giving a lecture a dull job. He advises future students, “If you decide to go to medical school, stick with it until the end.” MYLES DAVID BRAGER Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Surgery — Orthopedic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Effusive, ebullient Myles joined our class in the sophomore year after completing his Master’s in physiology at George Washington. Myles is a long distance runner, skier, sailor, fisherman, and musi- cian. His wife Debbie is a MSW who was a counselor at Hopkins and will continue work when Myles begins his orthopedic residency. As for many of us, bad memories of sophomore finals overshadow all others. Dr. Holden’s observation regarding the obsessive - compulsive character was both amusing and accurate: “Medical students are a prime example. These people spend their lives just getting their shit together.” 85 DONALD EUGENE BROWN, JR. Grady Memorial Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Atlanta, Georgia Don attended Howard University before coming here for the begin- nings of his medical career. Portions of his pre- medical time were oc- cupied by teaching and photography. On campus here, he is renowned for his athletic prowess with particular recognition of his brilliant play on the intramural basketball courts. Don also found time to be involv- ed in S.N.M.A. and served as its Vice-President. LAWRENCE ARTHUR BROWN University of Maryland Hospital Pathology Baltimore, Maryland Larry received his B.S. degree in mathematics from JHU. Although originally from the Washington area, he quickly developed into an expert on the geography and history of Baltimore. He was somewhat akin to a walking encyclopedia of interesting facts in this regard. During his studies, he also found adequate time to continue his virtuosity on the clarinet. He regularly played with the JHU orchestra and also was a member of the Follies band both years. DOUGLAS ROBERT BRUNNER University of Maryland Hospital Radiology Baltimore, Maryland Doug came to med school by way of the University of Chicago. Here, he was a member of the Peds track, participated in the family practice preceptorship, and did diabetes research for a Dean’s Fellowship. Doug enjoyed medicine at the VA almost as much as he disliked it at University. (His favorite disease is delirium tremens.) Drs. MacLaren and Woodward were among his favorite teachers. To those considering a future in medicine, he advises: “Examine your motives closely; medicine from the inside is not the same as it ap- pears to many people from the outside.” 86 DUANE MAVERICK BRYANT Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland After graduating from UMCP, Duane arrived in Baltimore little suspecting that not only would he be subjected to hours of histology and anatomy labs, but also to hours of Mel’s jokes. His survival at- tests to his intestinal fortitude. Without a doubt, his favorite course of the med school curriculum was basketball which he enjoyed along with the numerous other med student stars. (In a recent fac- titious survey, 53% of med students listed basketball as their favorite course.) ERIC VICTOR BUSKIRK University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Eric graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Public Administration. During his undergraduate years, he was on the Varsity Debating Team, served as a member of the Student Senate, and did research for a U.S. senator. In med school, his interests have been in Pediatrics and Psychiatry. He completed preceptorships in Child Psychiatry, Family Practice, and Social and Preventive Medicine. He also attended the 75th AMA Congress on Medical Education, par- ticipated in a course on Biomedical Sciences and the Law at the Law School, and completed an elective in Legal Medicine at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology during his final year. During med school, he has continued his extracurricular activities including hik- ing, swimming, and local history. FRANCIS KEVIN BUTLER Washington University Psychiatry St. Louis, Missouri Kevin came to med school after majoring in philosophy at Loyola College across town. Even amidst the trials and tribulations of the medical curriculum, he enjoyed reading philosophy as it provided a means of relaxation. Nietzsche was nice light reading for rainy Sun- day afternoons. Kevin only enjoyed beer and women more; and not necessarily in that order. The photograph shown here is a rare one of Kevin without a beer at hand. Quite appropriately, he plans a career in psychiatry. 87 TERANCE DEAN CAMPBELL Medical College of Pennsylvania Surgery Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Terry’s lifetime itinerary has included living in Rio de Janeiro and Djakarta, and college at Duke prior to his sojourn in Baltimore. His academic endeavors here have included participation in CAPP, publication of his Dean’s Summer Fellowship research (“Mesopic Vi- sion in Alcoholic Cirrhosis”), and the presentation of the differential diagnosis of osteoporosis for sophomore CPC which he remembers vividly. Even with his busy schedule, he found time for active par- ticipation in H.D.M.E. and intramural sports. With regard to ancillary services at UMH, he reminds us that “the best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your arm.” GREGORY MICHAEL CAPUTO Thomas Jefferson Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Greg graduated from the University of Delaware where he ma- jored in biology and was active in musical ensembles and intramural sports. During med school, he received a grant from the American Cancer Society to study fiber colonoscopy and spent two summers as an emergency room extern at the Kent General Hospital in Delaware. He has managed to continue his extra-curricular interests in tennis, squash, volleyball, playing the piano and guitar and he participated in the Follies. Greg’s most memorable experiences in med school were Dr. Woodward’s junior student conferences. As ad- vice to future physicians, he says: “Don’t give up!” DOUGLAS GORDON CARROLL, III Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Doug came to med school after graduating from Yale with a major in American Studies. Before med school, he worked with the Fron- tier Nursing Service in Kentucky where he became interested in rural medicine. Despite the demands of our curriculum, Doug has continued his interests in woodworking and farming. A quote from Kahlil Gibran has been particularly sustaining: “When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Doug plans a practice in a rural setting. 88 WAYNE EUGENE CASCIO North Carolina Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Chapel Hill, North Carolina Wayne is a native of Olney, Md. but is quite familiar with the Baltimore area having graduated from the Johns Hopkins Universi- ty- During his years at Maryland, he maintained a high level of per- formance, earning a place in A.O.A. In his free time, Wayne enjoys the music of Simon and Garfunkel, the novels of Ernest Hem- ingway and the company of his pharmacist wife, Marian. As he looks back at the years gone by. Sophomore Follies will remain the most memorable part of medical school. “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” — Albert Einstein ROBERT PAUL CERVENKA University of Chicago Clinics Obstetrics-Gynecology Chicago, Illinois Bob finished his undergrad studies at Emory University before returning to his native Maryland for the beginning of a medical career. He can quite nicely be described as a sun worshipper and usually had one of the richer tans in the class. Bob also receives a mark of “excellent” for his attendance record at the numerous parties of the last few years. It will be interesting to see how the climate of Chicago affects his skin pigmentation. He certainly will not be lonely in the windy city as he will be accompanied by his new wife, Karen. KAREN JEAN CHAYT Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Pediatrics Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A native Baltimorean, Karen graduated at the top of her class at Yeshiva University with Summa Cum Laude. She then took an N.I.H. fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of Maryland. She has consistently achieved honors in her medical studies and was elected to A.O.A. Her future plans include sub- specialty certification in Pediatric Hematology -Oncology as well as a full-time staff position at an academic institution managing pa- tients, conducting research, and teaching. 89 GEORGE CHEKAN Washington Hospital Center Obstetrics- Gynecology Washington, D.C. George, the suave, sophisticated gentleman, never made secret of his preference for the clinical years over the rigors of the basic science years. He spent the last half of senior year working in a D.C. area doc- tor’s office where he claims to have learned more about being a physi- cian than in the previous three and one half years of med school. Always a ladies man, George has evidently found his niche in OB GYN. He hopes to eventually practice in the Washington area. JANE LEE CHEN William Shands Hospital Internal Medicine Gainesville, Florida Jane was rather thoroughly educated before the lure of medical school proved irresistible. She has an A.B. from Radcliffe College, an M.A. from Berkeley, and a Ph.D. from U.C.L.A. Her scintillating academic record continued here with election to junior A.O.A. Also the complete mother, she has managed to raise two beautiful daughters during this time. In fact, much of her free time during med school was spent commuting (two hours a day) between Baltimore and Washington to be with her family. Her most memorable experience of the past four years was being brought to the hospital in hemorrhagic shock due to an ectopic pregnancy. After her residency, you will find her in a medical subspecialty. DANIEL JAMES CHISOLM Prince George’s General Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland This is a photograph of Dan. 90 HARRIET LEE COHEN Saint Agnes Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Harriet was one of many in the class who graduated from College Park en route to UMAB. However, she was already familiar with the campus because she did a research fellowship with the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine prior to med school. Harriet quickly established herself as the “Class Question Asker”, a title no one has been able to wrest from her. Of utmost importance in her life is her fiance, Mark, and they plan a June, 1980 wedding. After that, she plans to practice Pediatrics under the name, Harriet Kop- pelman, M.D. PATRICIA JAY COON Baltimore City Hospital Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland Pat decided on an internal medicine career when she found herself enjoying junior medicine at the VA. She and her musician husband live in Mt. Vernon where she is actively involved in organizations committed to preserving the historic beauty of the neighborhood. MOSHAY FRIEMAN COOPER University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland A native of Baltimore, Moshay attended College Park before returning home. At UMAB, she found time to involve herself in H.D.M.E. and a Wholistic Medicine group, as well as Follies. Yet, none of these activities will be quite as memorable as her wedding in September, 1979 to her husband, Menachem. Moshay hopes for a large, warm family life so it is no surprise to discover that her favorite ‘disease’ is pregnancy. Before continuing onto a Pediatrics residency, she offers these words of advice to prospective physicians: “Guard zealously your free time and private life and make the most of those precious moments for yourself.” 91 ROY WINSTON CRAG WAY, JR. South Baltimore General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Roy came to us from Morgan State University with a degree in chemistry and consummate skills in pool, table tennis, bowling, and backgammon. A s many classmates can attest, his skills certainly have not deteriorated over the past four years. Roy also devotes a good pro- portion of his energy to the rather impressive coin collection which he owns. (Rumor has it that it is insured by Lloyds of London.) In con- trast to many of his classmates, Roy was quite enthusiastic about the medical curriculum and the professors with particular fondness reserved for Dr. Woodward’s junior conferences. “Roy, my boy, you’re going to learn something here today!” JOSEPH PUTNAM CRAWFORD Medical College of Virginia Surgery — Urology Richmond, Virginia Joe graduated from Ohio State University and attended medical school in the Philippines at the University of Santo Thomas before coming to UMAB. He was able to do a great deal of traveling in the Orient and has had a number of memorable experiences in distant parts of the world. Joe enjoys many sports and is a familiar face in the school gym. He plans to practice Urology somewhere in the Caribbean or the Orient. CATHERINE CRUTE University of Massachusetts Family Practice Worcester, Massachusetts Cathie received her B.A. from Gettysburg College and her Bachelor’s in nursing at Catholic University, worked as an ICU and recovery room nurse before realizing, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” She advises future students to “keep your perspective on life — maintain your interests outside of medicine,” and she has cer- tainly lived by that philosophy. Cathie organized two class ski trips to Killington, Vt., and participated in the class raft trips. President of the Family Practice Club, 1978-79, Cathie plans a Family Prac- tice residency in the beautiful northeast where she can continue hiking, camping, and jogging her way to good health and fortune. 92 KIRK DEAN CYLUS Sinai Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Kirk did his undergraduate work at JHU only to come to medical school and fall in love with a social worker. He and Cheryl were married after sophomore year and she is now working at Levindale Geriatric Hospital while he pursues his career in Pediatrics. An ac- tive member of the Air Hockey Team, he was also an enthusiastic part of the Lexington Market Lunch Bunch, the Federal Hill Ex- pedition, and the Auxiliary Histology Lab and found time to play racquetball as well. RICHARD GEORGE D’ANTONIO Wilford Hall — U.S.A.F. Internal Medicine San Antonio, Texas Rick, one of the more serious and brighter members of the class, somehow managed to avoid our numerous yearbook queries. However, we did manage to obtain an older photograph of him. It is interesting that he will be doing his residency in a town rhyming with his own name. WINTHROP CRUSAN DAVIS University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland Chip joined the Class of 1980 in the junior year after spending two and one-half years at Guadalajara “sweating out a transfer.’’ In addition to his bachelor’s degree from Franklin and Marshall Col- lege, he holds a B. Pharm. degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and is a registered pharmacist in Maryland. His most memorable experience occurred at 8:30 a.m. August 10, 1978 when Dr. Willard Allen telephoned to say: “We’ve got a place for you, if you want it.” While at Maryland, he has found time to keep up his squash game and weightlifting. Chip is outspoken in his admiration of both Dr. Theodore Woodward and the United States of America. 93 DALE KATHERINE DEDRICK University of Michigan Surgery — Orthopedics Ann Arbor, Michigan Dale spent her pre-medical years at the University of Maryland in College Park. During medical school, she completed a Family Practice perceptorship, engaged in research in biofeedback with Dr. James Lynch, and served as Class Secretary. She participated in in- tramural basketball and ran in the Virginia Ten-Miler just last year. Her worst experiences in med school were the days just before the Pharmacology final examination; days when terror reigned in the hearts of most class members. In contrast, she received word of her honors grade in junior surgery on a day when her parents were in town to help her celebrate. Dale brings a refreshing perspective to the practice of medicine, saying: “You have to be a good person first, and a good physician second.” CRAIG ALLEN DICKMAN Washington Hospital Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Washington, D.C. A native Baltimorean, Craig attended the University of Maryland at College Park and then did graduate work in microbiology. While Craig has spent the last four years involved in his medical studies, his wife Bonnie has been teaching children in special education. ANGUS JEFFERSON DODDS Williamsport Hospital Family Practice Williamsport, Pennsylvania A Johns Hopkins graduate in engineering, Jeff worked for Ralph Nader’s Health Research Group for three years prior to med school. He took a Dean’s Fellowship in epidemiology during med school and also devoted time to counseling alcoholics and tutoring pathology students. His most memorable experience was finishing that third year. He is fascinated by the chandelier sign and would like to forget his first anatomy exam. A former Hopkins lacrosse player, Jeff still enjoys outdoor sports, and in quieter moments he likes to read Tolkien. He plans a future Family Practice in a small community. 94 DARRYL ARLTON DRIGGS Wesley Medical Center Radiology Wichita, Kansas Darryl originally comes from Dallas, Texas. He is probably the only Mormon in our class and to no one’s surprise, attended Brigham Young University. Prior to coming east, he served as a missionary for the Mormon church in Central America for two years. One of the more familiar sights of the basic science years was Darryl sleeping in lectures. In his free time, Darryl plays piano and, prior to med school, won the Dallas Symphonic Festival in the piano sonata division. His better half, Mary, is interested in the political sciences and history, as well as in taking good care of their children. PAUL EDWARD DRISCOLL Saint Francis- Indiana University Family Practice Beech Grove, Indiana Paul was a Zoology major at College Park before joining our class. During med school he took part in intramural volleyball and basket- ball in addition to the extra time he devoted to Family Practice and Medicine externships. The House of God introduced him to his favorite sign, the 44 Q” sign, and taught him that 44 The essence of good medical care is to do as much nothing as possible.” Paul’s pride and joy is not his M.D. degree, but rather his wife Kathryn and their new baby Lisa Michelle. After his four year Air Force obligation, Paul plans a Family Practice in the eastern U.S. MARGARET ANNE DUNLAVEY Harvard University Public Health Boston, Massachusetts Anne is a native of Washington, D.C. She was originally a Foreign Language major at UMCP, but eventually joined the prem- ed rat race and ended up here in Charm City. A procrastinator par excellence, she has vivid memories of sitting on the floor outside the Micro labs trying to finish reading the notes as the rest of the class took the exam. The MAD woman contributed her singing and danc- ing talents to both Follies, and also kept up her interests in em- broidery, cooking, and music. Her Pediatrics rotations were the high point of her clinical years; she plans to get her MPH and even- tually work in maternal and child health. 95 MAUREEN LOUISE DURKIN South Baltimore General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Maureen, also known as Mo, Pickles, or just plain Durkin, will probably best be remembered as the first person to win a Pulitzer Prize for notetaking. Her prolific output of notes during sophomore year, besides providing many of us with our only connection to the med school curriculum, also nourished us with multiple moments of laughter and unique insights into the psyches of our profound pun- dits. Her high point of the past four years undoubtedly occurred in junior year when she became the proud mother of little baby Catherine. MARGARET DENISE EBY Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Margie graduated from Loyola College before beginning the medical school process. During her time here, she could often be seen in the company of Mark, a future DDS. This reportedly helped maintain good relations between the medical and dental schools. (Notice that war never broke out between the two schools during our four years.) Margie also contributed her photographic talents to the yearbook by developing many of the color photos. In the near future, it’s apparent that Charm City will maintain its hold on Margie. 96 SONIA EHRLICH Boston City Hospital Pediatrics Boston, Massachusetts Sonia, originally from Czechoslovakia, came to med school after obtaining her B.A. in biology at Harvard. Her travel itinerary of the past eight years is quite impressive: France, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Scotland, India, and Boston. In fact, most of her senior year was spent in Boston. Her future husband and former college classmate, Jeffrey Sachs, is a professor of economics at Harvard University. JUDITH FALLOON Barnes Hospital Internal Medicine St. Louis, Missouri Judy ' s life story will remain a mystery since she declined all year- book inquiries. Once, however, she was heard to mumble some words about a European princess and a tragic war but then quickly fell silent. We do know that she graced Syracuse and Ohio State as an undergraduate. We do know that she devours and assimilates all printed material in her path. But beyond that, what secrets are locked away in her marvelous cortical neuronal circuitry, we can only wonder. DALE J. FERGUSON Franklin Square Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Dale, one of the quieter members of the class, will probably best be remembered for the numerous magical tricks he performed on various and sundry occasions. His best feat of prestidigitation un- doubtedly occurred during Sophomore Follies when he managed to liberate Dr. Mary Hall-Craggs from her brassiere. During med school, he also married Nancy. 97 JAMES FERDINAND FIASTRO Thomas Jefferson University Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Fred will always be fondly remembered for his superb contributions to the Freshman Follies. His prior experience as an actor was quite evident in his sterling performance. For a while, there was even talk about changing “Parkinsonism” to “Fiastroism.” Fred also won ac- claim for his academic performances with his election to A.O.A. DAVID MARK FISHBEIN Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Dave received his B.S. degree from College Park in 1977 after completing a year of medical school. His most memorable occasion of these busy four years was celebrating the completion of the preclinical years on the class boat trip. Dave took a preceptorship in Family Practice before deciding on Internal Medicine for a career. He hopes to eventually have a community-based practice. One of the more musically inclined members of the class, he enjoys playing both guitar and piano. For outdoor entertainment, you’ll find him heading for the tennis courts. KENNETH ALLEN FOX University of Utah — Latter Day Saints Radiology Salt Lake City, Utah Ken, who did his undergraduate training at Occidental College in Los Angeles, will be returning west for a residency in Diagnostic Radiology. He arranged to spend most of his fourth year in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he “conducted a research project on the ef- fects of high altitude sun on the noses of beautiful women at Alta Ski resort.” His other interests include alpine skiing, photography, hiking, and camping. He hopes to continue research and teach at an academic medical center in the west. 98 MILFORD MACE FOXWELL, JR. Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine W ashington, D.C. What can we say about this wild and crazy guy that he doesn ' t say himself? His extracurricular activities included beer can collecting, basketball, and sex (not necessarily in that order). An Orioles game with Mark and Jay and Friday morning epidemiology quizzes (after Thursday nights out) were his most unforgettable memories. His idol is Mickey Mantle although he admits that Dr. Rappaport is fair- ly admirable as physicians go, and Dr. Price does a respectable Mickey Foxwell impersonation. Mickey will practice medicine on the Eastern Shore after his residency. “W e’re having some fun. ' DAVID BRYAN FRANKS Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A College Park graduate, Bryan found his four years back in his native Baltimore full of pleasant and painful memories. Bryan wishes to acknowledge all the great people that he has had the good fortune to meet and get to know: Grace, Jim, Larry, Moshay, Robert, Duane. His worst experience during the last four years was Jim Georgeton ' s death. Before moving on to his career of private practice in Internal Medicine, he leaves his favorite saying. “What is a friend? I will tell you. It is a person with whom you dare to be yourself. ' DONNA ANITA FRIDIE University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland A graduate of Spelman College, Donna participated in the pediatric tracking program throughout medical school. She leaves the student life with these parting words: “I am most grateful to those who encouraged, instructed, or inspired me, reaffirmed my belief in the existence of at least a few truly dedicated humanitarians. ' 99 INGA LINDSEY FRIDIE George Washington University Pathology Washington, D.C. A graduate of the Johns Hopkins University, Inga received a B.A. in romance languages. She has not given up her humanistic and artistic interests during medical school. In her free moments, she can be found at the piano playing classical music — mostly by Chopin. For more rigorous recreation, she plays racquetball. After her residency in Pathology, Inga plans to practice as a clinical pathologist in a hospital laboratory. DONALD LEROY FRYE William Shands Hospital Internal Medicine Gainesville, Florida While a Z oology major at George Washington University, Don worked as night supervisor of the stocking crew for Safeway food stores. He was also a teaching assistant in histology at GWU, and again in med school. He has done research in pathology here, study- ing dissecting aortic aneurysms. Don will never forget that last week of senior medicine, and he warns future seniors to have plenty of Valium and Maalox on hand before beginning that ordeal. Outside the hospital, Don enjoys antique collecting and restoration, and home remodeling. His wife, Cheryl Ann, is the supervisor of ac- counts receivable for John C. Louis Company. RICHARD MICHAEL GALITZ Eastern Virginia Graduate Medical Center General Surgery Norfolk, Virginia Rich obtained B.A. and B.F.A. degrees from the University of Maryland and subsequently spent a few years working as a painter and sculptor while living in Washington, Europe, and Mexico before the lure of medical life proved too strong. He studied medicine at the Universidad de Michoacan in Mexico before transferring here in sophomore year. All of the fancy diseases we heard about failed to impress Rich who still prefers " good health”. Also to his credit is a brown belt in karate. In more subdued moments, he enjoys playing guitar. His artistic talents should be useful in his planned career of plastic, reconstructive, and hand surgery. 100 VINCENT WILLIAM GATTO, JR. Case Western Reserve Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Cleveland, Ohio Vinny entered the class of 1980 as a junior after having com- pleted the first two years of med school in L’Aquila, Italy — which he calls both “difficult and enjoyable”. A graduate of the American University in Washington, D.C., he is also a professional musician having performed from Miami to New York. His wife of five years, Jean, works as an airline attendant for United Airlines. In his spare time, Vinny still manages to play music professionally as well as playing squash and bowling. In the near future, he plans a group practice in OB GYN, hopefully in the D.C. area. GRACE KAY GELLETLY University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland While a microbiology major at College Park, Grace played in- tramural basketball and tennis and was co-captain of J.V. basketball. In med school, she took electives in D.C. and Dallas and spent her summers surveying insect populations in sweet corn fields up and down her native Eastern Shore. Grace fondly remembers winning the doubles tennis tournament with Jim Georgeton. She also was a valuable part of the intramural basketball team. Grace has not neglected her artistic endeavors during this time, having played clarinet since the third grade. ALAN IRA GELMAN Michael Reese Hospital Internal Medicine Chicago, Illinois After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Alan held a government job in D.C. for two years doing biological data pro- cessing. He then went to the University of Louvain in Brussels, Belgium for the first two years of med school. He was dismayed when he went to his first class and couldn’t understand a word that was said! (Little did he know that the same thing was happening to us here.) One advantage of being in Europe was the opportunity for travel. Alan also enjoys skiing and sketching. His best experience was his transfer to Maryland in 1978. He says, “I’m so glad I’m liv- ing in the U.S.A.” 101 ROBERT JAY GINSBERG Shadyside Hospital Family Practice Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Born a Libra in the Year of the Horse, Robert attended Vassar Col- lege after it became coed. In med school he was the official class afi- cionado of TM and many of you may have seen him practicing his art in the student lounge at one time or another. (No, he was not a catatonic schizophrenic.) He also earned election to A.O.A. but never neglected proper attention to the humanistic aspects of medical care as exemplified by his thorough involvement with H.D.M.E. (which resulted in a publication). DEBORAH LYNNE GOFREED George Washington University Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. Debbie graduated from Duke University and spent the summer before med school camping across the country. A psychology major, she was a mental health hotline volunteer and a CAPP student before deciding to do her residency in Internal Medicine. Her worst experience in the last four years was seeing her original pharm final t-score (0!) and her subsequent experience trying to get Dr. A. to rectify it. Deb cannot forget “from here to Boston in Tom Moran’s van (it’s not what you think).” To those concerned: “Thanks to all who gave me memories I shall always cherish — the sharing of good times and good humor with good friends.” ANDREW LAWRENCE GOLDBERG Providence Hospital Internal Medicine Portland, Oregon Andy came back home to Baltimore after graduation from Dart- mouth College. Here, he was involved in CAPP and HDME, and somehow managed to spend the summer of ’77 in London where he worked at Guy’s Hospital. Out in the real world he likes tennis, golf, swimming, skiing, and international affairs. (Does that mean he has girlfriends in several countries?) He is also one of the class experts on classical music. Andy remembers a few words Goethe once wrote: “A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified by name and form.” ■ 102 LAWRENCE GOLDKIND University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland While doing his undergraduate work at the University of Penn- sylvania, Larry arranged to spend his junior year at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. After receiving his B.A., he came to UMAB and became involved in such projects as a Dean’s fellowship to study prostatic hormone receptors. Strangely enough, he found pharmacology to be a real drag. Larry used his free time to actively pursue his interests in photography, archeology, swimming, and tennis. He also contributed his time and talents to the yearbook staff. MARCIA PARGAMENT GOLDMARK Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. A native of the Washington area, Marcia attended undergraduate school at College Park and will gladly return to the D.C. area for her residency training. Medical highlights included a summer preceptor- ship in Ohio following sophomore year where she was able to observe the practice of medicine in the university, urban, and rural settings. Through medical school, Marcia happily maintained time for her out- side interests which included music, reading trash novels, and her hus- band Glen. PETER JOHN GOLUEKE State University — Kings County Medical Center Surgery Brooklyn, New York A native Baltimorean, Pete strayed down to College Park for his undergraduate work. He is one of the more athletic members of our class and has demonstrated proficiency at several different sports. His healthy appearance is augmented by the seemingly perennial tan. Pete also demonstrated proficiency in the academic world as he was elected to A.O.A. One of his more refreshing textbooks was the ubiquitous House of God. After his residency, he plans to have a private practice in General Surgery and will appreciate all referrals. 103 SAMUEL OLIVER GRIMM, III National Naval Medical Center Obstetrics - Gynecology Bethesda, Maryland Sam arrived in Baltimore after the familiar four year sojourn at College Park. Without a doubt, he is one of the more devoted basket - bailers of the class and in particular enjoys playing it in cold weather while wearing gloves. (So he was very pleased when he discovered that our gym was well designed for that purpose.) Like many classmates, Sam agrees that the nadir of medical school was the last two weeks of sophomore year. Nonetheless, he cried, “Damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead,” and he survived. Toughness like that should serve him well in the near future since the Navy owns his soul for at least four years after his residency. Beyond that, he can only speculate. HARRY MILLS HARRIS Maryland General Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland “Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, I’m free at last.” Hailing from Monkton, Md., Harry attended UMBC where he received his B.A. degree in 1973. Since joining the Class of ’80, his best experience has been getting out and the worst was disimpaction. Not one to enjoy obscure diseases, his favorite clinical entity is good health. He advises future generations interested in medicine to “forget it!” Harry’s favorite song is appropriately enough, “I did it my way”. ROBERT JOHN HEINEN University of Virginia Medical Center Internal Medicine Charlottesville, Virginia Bob worked at N.I.H. for four years before getting the call to move thirty miles north. His performance in med school showed adequate brilliance as he was elected to A.O.A. as a junior. Bob also continued his research activities between his curricular studies and managed to help produce seven publications in the last two years. One of them even a ppeared in NEJM 299:519-21. (Look it up yourself if you don’t believe it.) Of course, Bob did not neglect his beer consumption either, and was often the last person to leave any drunken party. (He usually had trouble finding the door.) 104 LEE J. HELMAN Barnes Hospital Internal Medicine St. Louis, Missouri For some unknown reason, Lee’s favorite disease is Menkes’ Kinky Hair Syndrome. He graduated from G.W.U. in 1976 and has distinguished himself at our illustrious university as an intensely energetic student. His most valued jewel of wisdom was acquired while reading that four-star text. The House of God : “The patient is the one with the disease.” On the more heroic side, Lee served as the Student Council Vice-President during junior year and his record is absolutely clear of any corrupt or illicit activities. At last report, he is still hanging out with that cute blonde. ROBERT JEAN-MARIE HENKE, JR. York Hospital Family Practice York, Pennsylvania Remember “the Pest” in Sophomore Follies? That was Bob playing the Don Pachuta role. Also a determined athlete, an absence from class usually meant a basketball game was somewhere to be found. Bob came to Baltimore from his hometown, Emmitsburg, Md., where he attended Mt. Saint Mary’s College. He also worked at the Frederick Cancer Research Center prior to med school. His wife, Roxane, is a graduate of the UMAB School of Nursing. As Bob looks forward to a career in Family Practice, he reflects that “Med school is a once in a lifetime experience — thank God!” ANNE ELIZABETH HENRY University of Maryland Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Anne graduated from Smith College with an A.B. degree in English. Before succumbing to the lure of medical school, however, she completed pre-med courses at College Park, spent some time in Louisiana working at a leprosarium, and completed a year of nurs- ing school. Upon arriving at UMAB, she became active in the UMAB Christian Fellowship which helped her through the “sometimes irrational events going on around me,” and gave her the “support and encouragement” she often needed. v 105 GEOFFREY RICHARD HERALD Mercy Hospital Surgery Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania A hard core sports enthusiast, Geoff was a varsity soccer and golf player at Ohio State. Here, in Baltimore, he participated in autocross events with the Baltimore Sports Car Club and was a player in the City Soccer League with a team from the Maryland-American Turkish Association. In academic life, Geoff was most impressed by the teachings of Drs. T. Woodward and John Diaconis. “Let us endeavor to live so that when we come to die even the under- taker will be sorry.” — Mark Twain SUSAN JEAN HILLEBRENNER Kapiolani — Children’s Center Obstetrics- Gynecology Honolulu, Hawaii Sue came to med school after finishing her undergrad work at Johns Hopkins. Her most enjoyable moments of the past four years occurred during the preparation and presentation of Sophomore Follies in which she played a starring role. She also provided in- valuable service to the class with those numerous sets of S P notes, many of which displayed interesting pen names. In her spare time. Sue enjoys squash, piano, gardening, and gourmet cooking. For theJ next few years she and her lawyer husband will also be enjoying the beauty of Hawaii. MARK CHARLES HIMMELHEBER Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Mark joined the class in junior year after a couple years on the other side of the world at the Far Eastern University Dr. Nicanor Reyes Institute of Medicine in Manila. The U.S.A. is a nice place to live. 106 DENA ROBETTE HIXON Harrisburg Hospital Family Practice Harrisburg, Pennsylvania “Butterflies count not months but minutes and they have enough time.” I never knew four years could go so fast. During medical school I have laughed more and cried more than at any other time in my life. It is all the wonderful people I have met along the way who have made it not only a bearable experience but a very special part of my life. KAREN MARIE HLADIK Baltimore City Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Karen’s rude initiation to life at Maryland was a three hour admis- sions interview with a favorite microbiology instructor. Her med school career was an impressive feat of time management: In addition to working in an ER and biomedical research, she was able to pack in gardening, horseback riding, bumper pool, and singing in a local trio. She fondly remembers Woodward conferences and Physical Diagnosis. The pharmacology final was her favorite disease. She leaves us this thought to ponder: “As physiology and pathology are intimately link- ed, so are life and medicine. A little of the latter increases appreciation of the former. Beware the balance.” MICHAEL JOSEPH HOFFMAN Medical College of Virginia Surgery Richmond, Virginia For the most part, Mike will remain a mystery man as he declined our inquiries and a portrait sitting. However, he was one of the more studious members of the class as indicated by his election to A.O.A. 107 JAN LAWS HOUGHTON University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Medical school for Jan has been highlighted by such memorable ex- periences as having a liter of normal saline explode in her face when she inserted IV tubing. She also developed bilateral eye infections, trench mouth and skin rot, all of which she blames on one particular gomere. And despite all that, she became a member of A.O.A.! A. V.P.I. graduate in Aerospace Engineering, Jan did graduate work at Hopkins in Biomedical Engineering prior to med school. She and her husband, Raymond, a computer scientist, have four- year old twins Ray and April. Besides chasing after her lively children, Jan has found time to pursue an interest in nineteenth century Russian literature. She says, “On the whole, I’d rather be in Philadelphia.” . CHARITA CHERYLLE HOYLE Franklin Square Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Charita arrived at the UMAB campus via College Park. While earning a B.S. in Microbiology, she did research at the U.S.D.A. Research Center in Beltsville, Md. with acknowledgments in several manuscripts. On the eve of making it through med school, Charita has these acknowledgments: “I appreciate the support and aid from Dr. Robert Harrell. Without his help, caring, and faith in me, I would not have been able to see the light.” “God grant me the serenity to accept change. And the courage to change what should be, And the wisdom to know the difference.” CHRIST JON JOSEPH HUDDLESTON Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Chris was another classmate who managed to slip through the yearbook dragnet. We do know that he was frequently observed on the basketball court along with the other med student stars. Other- wise, his life remains a mystery. However, we were able to come up with two other solid facts: he was not the first man to reach the South Pole and he is not a billionaire. 108 RICHARD DALE HUHN Roger Williams General Hospital Internal Medicine Providence, Rhode Island Rich will be remembered for coordinating the class note taking service. (What would we have done without it?) After receiving a double major in biology and chemistry at American University, Rich pursued his interests by teaching and doing research in biochemistry freshman and sophomore summers of med school. Rich fondly remembers Dr. Blake’s humiliation of Dr. Pachuta in front of the entire class. His worst memory was the distinction of being one of four juniors to fail Dr. Pachuta’s oral exam in medicine. Undaunted, he plans a career of academic medicine plus an oncology endocrine fellowship. STEPHEN ROBERT IKEDA University of Maryland School of Medicine Research — Pharmacology Baltimore, Maryland A former chemistry major at G.W.U., Steve came to Baltimore as an M.D. Ph.D. candidate. Working in the Department of Pharmacology, he prepared a publication on nvjscarinic cholinergic receptors from rat brain. His diligent efforts won him election to A.O.A., and he still found time for intramural basketball and photography. Steve says med school has been his worst experience and vacations the best. He was amused by the chandelier sign and found Familial Mediterranean Fever interesting, but “Dumpy Don was the worst excuse for a physi- cian” he had ever seen. Steve advises all future med students to read The House of God because it is more useful than Harrison’s. KENNETH ALAN JURIST Montefiore Hospital Center Surgery Bronx, New York Ken came to Baltimore via the Far Eastern University School of Medicine in the Philippines in 1978. In his spare time, Ken tries his hand at squash, tennis, woodworking, and photography. On the academic side, he has worked as a biologist at N.I.H. and has three publications to his credit. Some of his more memorable events in the past few years have been living and studying in the Philippines and then having to wait for transfer back to Maryland. Now that medical school is over, Ken plans to devote his energies to or- thopedic surgery. 109 MELVIN LAWRENCE KAPLAN Washington Hospital Center Surgery Washington, D.C. Larry joined the class as a sophomore after completing a year at the University of Nebraska. He has a B.A. in Biology from Hofstra University and an M.S. in Medical Microbiology. Before med school, he published an article in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology. Larry is an “All-American Boy”, enjoying numerous outdoor sports as well as cultural events and music, and has traveled widely in the U.S. and abroad. He is intrigued by the Happy Puppet Syndrome and the clinical phrase, “incompatible with life”. He plans to practice Emergency Medicine in the future. JEROME JOHN KARWACKI, JR. Brooke Army Medical Center Internal Medicine San Antonio, Texas Hailing from Baltimore, Jerry spent his undergraduate career at Loyola College. His varied activities prior to entering medicine in- clude a six year stint in the Army, of which three years were spent in Bangkok, Thailand. He also has worked as a medical researcher in serologic epidemiology. While in med school, he has continued his interest in epidemiology by doing a summer project at the State Medical Examiner’s Office resulting in a publication in JAMA, December, 1979. Jerry’s free time is mostly spent with his wife Susan and their three daughters. In the future Jerry will do a year of Internal Medicine before returning to the area for an Epidemiology residency at Walter Reed. MARIAN F. KELLNER Yale — New Haven Medical Center Obstetrics- Gynecology New Haven, Connecticut Marian had diverse educational experiences before taking the big plunge into medical school. She received her B.A. from Albertus Magnus College, did biology graduate work for two years at the University of Virginia, and received her M.S.W. from the Universi- ty of Maryland School of Social Work. She and a friend organized and operated a successful mental health clinic where she continued to work during the first two years of med school. However, this did not interfere with her curricular studies as evidenced by her elec- tion to A.O.A. no VERNE FRANKLIN KEMERER, JR. University of Maryland Hospital Radiology Baltimore, Maryland Verne came to Baltimore with a B.A. from the University of South Florida and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Johns Hopkins University. He had worked as a lab supervisor for U.S. Phosphoric Products and completed an N.I.H. post-doctoral staff fellowship. His wife Margaret is a Social Security administrative assistant and they have two children. Besides being President of A.O.A., Verne enjoys water skiing and boating. His motto is: u Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” He happily recalls meeting a junior medicine V.A. patient on an elevator as a senior. “Everyone thought he would be dead because of severe diabetes, but I had sparked compliance with a heart to heart talk.” MICHAEL RASHBAUM KESSLER Sinai Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland The class will probably best remember Mike as the brilliant imper- sonator of Drs. Guth and Woodward during the Freshman and Sophomore Follies. A native Baltimorean, he received his B.S. from George Washington University. At med school, Mike spent con- siderable energy serving the class on Year I, Year II, and Clinical Years Committees, the I.C.P. Advisory Committee, and the Nutrition Com- mittee. His hobbies include surfing, skiing, scuba diving, camping, an- tique collecting, and traveling. It’s no wonder that his favorite disease is mania. Talking about the Class of 1980, Mike says that “It has been fabulous being a part of such a fun, lively, spirited, and easy going group of people.” JAMES CRAIG KING University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland A College Park graduate, Jim delved into several externships here as well as intramural basketball and class raft trips. He got married during med school and found that Rita ' s help was invalu able. The best experience for Jim was being called at 3 a.m. for micro-surgical procedure and being treated as a valuable part of the team. Then again, there was the time he was informed that a patient’s records were unobtainable because they were in a broken filing machine re- quiring parts from France. Jim feels fortunate to have been taught by Dr. T. E. Wopdward who devoted so much of himself to teaching. Jim advises, “Don’t be afraid to say ‘I don’t know’ — you’ll learn more that way.” ill CHRISTINE LYNN KIRKWOOD Orlando Hospital Internal Medicine Orlando, Florida A zoology major from College Park, Chris worked as a lab tech for a year and also served as director of the Hillcrest Heights Free Medical Clinic before coming to Baltimore. She took some rotations in Florida and California senior year. She was impressed with Dr. Woodward’s junior medicine conferences and hated senior medicine at the V.A. Chris was amused by the “anal wink” and fascinated with Wegener’s Granulomatosis. For prospective med students Chris suggests: “Take up plumbing instead.” JEFFREY ALAN KLEIMAN Cincinnati General Hospital Family Practice Cincinnati, Ohio “Men grind and grind in the mill of a truism, and nothing comes out but what was put in. But the moment they desert the tradition for spontaneous thought, then poetry, wit, hope, virtue, learning, anecdote, all flock to their aid.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson Jeff received a B.A. from Emory and an M.S. in Physiology from Maryland before joining us. He married Eileen, a social worker, during med school and they traveled to Europe for their honey- moon. For future generations he quotes Winston Churchill: “It is my belief, you cannot deal with the most serious things in the world unless you understand the most amusing.” DAVID STEPHEN KLEIN North Carolina Memorial Hospital Surgery Chapel Hill, North Carolina Prior to med school, Dave earned his B.S. in chemistry from the University of Maryland and also worked as a pesticide specialist for the Environmental Protection Agency. Away from these hallowed halls of learning, Dave enjoys skiing, rugby, art collecting, listening to the music of Oscar Peterson, and wine consultation. Ingrained in his cortical neurons is the memory of “jumping out of that damned airplane with Michael Kessler” and the subsequent descent into a cornfield. (We tend to think that they used parachutes but we’re not sure.) 112 KENNETH CLARKE KUNZE Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland After four years as an Air Force hero, K.C. opted for the academic glories of College Park and then somehow ended up here. His contributions to the Class of ' 80 were truly outstanding: he was the planning and organizing force behind both the boat trip and the senior banquet. He also set a fine example for the rest of us with his levity and beer drinking while still performing well academically. In a quieter moment, he even managed to meet a nice girl, Chris, who he eventually married. His most memorable interval of med school, however, was his junior psychiatry rotation, which is one of the reasons why he plans a career in Internal Medicine. SUSAN LAMME LAESSIG Washington Hospital Center Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. Susan graduated from Cornell University with a major in Govern- ment, married, and became the mother of three children before taking up pre- medical course work as a night-school student at College Park. Throughout med school, she commuted between Baltimore and her home in the Washington area where her husband Walter practices law. Our hats are off to Susan for managing the demands of the medical school curriculum plus the added challenges of a long commute and a thriving family — all accomplished with incredible grace. WILLIAM DAVID LAMM University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland Medical school can be a physically and emotionally trying ex- perience as it tends to foster self-doubt and insecurity. Some cope by emersing themselves in books and journals, and trying to master the vast amounts of knowledge presented. My feeling is that to not just survive medical school, but to also grow as a person requires leaving the books and talking to people — patients, nurses, classmates, and especially friends. For medical school elicits some intense emotions and only by sharing them can one come to terms with oneself and one’s experiences so that at the end of the four years, one will have acquired more emotional stability, compassion, and self-awareness as well as the M.D. PETER THEODORE LAPINSKY Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland At six foot three inches, Pete ranks as one of the taller members of the class and is always welcome on the basketball court even though he prefers 25 foot jump shots to playing under the basket. He also enjoys playing guitar and piano (not at the same time) as well as consuming a few beers now and then. After his internship, he will begin an ophthalmology residency at University Hospital. BARRY LORENZO LEE Providence Hospital Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. The photograph to the right is definitely one of Barry. The secrets of his life, however, are still on the yearbook questionnaire, wherever that may be. CHARLES EDWARD LEE University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Hailing from Silver Spring, Charlie graduated from College Park with a B.S. in Microbiology. His summers from 1974-1977 were spent as a research technologist at the Naval Medical Research In- stitute and currently he has two papers in press. His high level of achievement continued at UMAB as he earned membership in A.O.A. He also joins the already numerous ranks of those who wish to “overthrow and defeat the tyrant and opressor of the masses: Albuquerque.” In his spare time, Charlie can be found relaxing with his wife, Gabrielle, and their Shetland sheepdog, Muffin. (We don’t know if he owns any sheep.) He also enjoys the pleasures of fishing and leathercrafting. 114 HUH MARK DAVID LEESON SUNY — Upstate Medical Center Radiology Syracuse, New York After graduating from West Virginia Wesleyan College, Mark served some time as a lab technician before the fateful plunge into the medical profession. Even as a med student, however, his mastery of the laboratory continued with his work in the hospital’s chemistry lab. A Family Practice preceptorship in Bozeman, Mon- tana provided him with the delightful opportunity to hike the Yellowstone backcountry. Mark’s musical abilities can be vouched for by the many pianos who have been fortunate enough to ex- perience his talented fingers. BRIAN CRAIG LERNER University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland In the premed years, Brian earned his B.S. in Chemistry at College Park and simultaneously engaged in some vigorous research, part of which resulted in a publication: “The Effect of Cations on the Action of Trimeta phosphate and Diaminomaleonitrite as Prebiotic Condens- ing Agents.” During the enjoyable med school years, he participated in the psychiatry track program. Now, as the master of mind and matter, he looks to the future with his eternal optimism: his favorite sign is the smile and his favorite symptom is happiness. THOMAS EDWARD LIPIN University of Maryland Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland After finishing his undergraduate studies at Loyola College, Tom attended the UMAB Dental School, receiving a master’s degree in Anatomy. While not working, Tom enjoys playing golf, racquetball, tennis, and skiing. He is also one of the more experienced con- noisseurs of beer in our class. His best memory from the years in med school was skiing down Rendezvous Point in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He plans to do an orthopedic residency after his intern- ship. He advises future med students to “take Evelyn Wood’s speed reading course and read the New England Journal.” 115 JOHN RUSSELL LIVENGOOD Baylor College Affiliated Hospitals Pediatrics Houston, Texas A native of Cumberland, Md., John attended William and Mary before coming to Baltimore. He found time while in college to spend a year in France at the Universite Paul Valery in Montpelier. While at Maryland, John was a CAP student in Pathology. His fondest memories here were the Follies while his most devastating experience was the Pharmacology course. Yet, despite the hardship, he maintains a healthy attitude: “Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.” — Vonnegut MICHAEL ROY LUNDE Deaconess Hospital Family Practice Milwaukee, Wisconsin Mike came to Baltimore by way of Lenoir-Rhyne College, receiving his B.S. in Biology. Here, his favorite disease, alcoholism, occupied a good portion of his free time as he worked as an alcoholism counselor in the E.R. and the Tuerk House. (He’s also been known to tip a few brews himself.) Mike will always fondly remember the boat trip and “all of the good friends and fine people I have met over the past four years.” He leaves us with these thoughts: “In your quest for knowledge, do not lose track of your common sense which ultimately will prevail once you become a clinician.” ROBERT YALE MAGGIN Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Rob received his B.S. from Maryland and M.S. in Biology from Georgetown prior to entering medical school. Finding the first two years of medical school demanding and “not altogether rewarding,” he still managed to find time for an occasional hiking and camping trip. One of the more memorable moments of the past four years was “hiking at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and realizing that only three weeks ago I was taking the Pharm final in Baltimore. ' That trip with Dave Markowitz was his last real vacation but Rob is looking forward to his next, a delayed honeymoon with his wife, Mary, “somewhere far from the U.” 116 TERI ANN MANOLIO Boston City Hospital Internal Medicine Boston, Massachusetts Teri arrived in Baltimore after spending three years in the char- ming town of College Park. An accomplished musican, she kept her talents finely honed during med school and often played at a Washington, D.C. dinner theater. Her musical prowess was magnificently demonstrated during both Follies in which she pro- duced, arranged, and directed the music. She now travels north for the big time in Boston. RICHARD ANTHONY MARASA Prince Georges General Hospital Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland A Rutgers graduate, Rick did a summer externship at Prince Georges General in 1978, which obviously influenced his choice of residency. His most memorable experiences of the past four years were his marriage to Pam Diacos, an R.N., and the EST training. According to Rick, “there is no such thing as a bad experience.” Getting through med school is easy: “Find someone you’re close to and has had a great experience and listen to them and absolutely follow their advice and guidance.” “The organs of the aged do not cry out in pain . . . and neither do their lab tests.” — Sir William Osier as per Don Pachuta JOHN NEIL MARGOLIS Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Prior to his graduation from Franklin and Marshall, John spent six months studying drama in England, working on a Kibbutz in Israel, and traveling around Europe. For sure, he believes that a doctor should be a human being first: “If it’s a choice between play- ing in the leaves with your honey or reading Harrison’s, choose nature.” Playing in the leaves happily paid off for John before junior year when he married Barbara who works as an interior designer in Washington. After residency, he hopes to set up a private practice in the Baltimore area. “People like me used to be considered listless and lazy. Now we are referred to as laid back.” 117 DAVID JEFFREY MARKOWITZ University of Michigan Affiliated Hospitals Pediatrics Ann Arbor, Michigan Prior to starting his medical studies, Dave obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Penn State and did some research with B.C.R.C. and the Naval Medical Research Center. In addition, he found time to travel extensively throughout Europe and Israel. Concerning the wonderful professors at our beloved university: “Their very existence proves that clear and concise thought is an unobtainable dream at the University of Maryland.” In his freer mo ments, Dave likes to play tennis and basketball as well as sleeping and eating, but his most memorable experiences of the last four years were hiking down the Grand Canyon and dancing with Jeanne McCauley. (At the same time?) BARRY STEPHEN MARX Duke University Medical Center Pediatrics Durham, North Carolina Barry was released into the world from Brooklyn, N.Y. whereupon he promptly proceeded to complete his undergrad work at the University of Pennsylvania. In Baltimore, at the wild and crazy parties of medical student life, Barry’s extensive repertoire of jokes and smooth delivery established him as a comedian, first class. In other free moments, he enjoys archery and raquetball, and at one point, he found time for a memorable trip to Florida. During sophomore year, Barry was awarded a student research stipend by the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. (There is no truth to the rumor that his project consisted of a six week binge of tequila and beer.) DAVID BRUCE MATCHAR University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland David has chosen the arduous life task of knowing what it is that he does not know. If he has any time left over, he will try to learn those things. Long before then, of course, he hopes to be teaching. David is a graduate of Princeton, which still continues to function as an educational institution. Possessed of a whimsical cast of mind, David is certain that the future lies ahead. Close friends nurture this illusion. 118 LAURIE JANE MATTHEWS University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland But nothing is more estimable than a physician who, having studied nature from his youth, knows the properties of the human body, the diseas es which assail it, the remedies which will benefit it, exercises his art with caution, and pays equal attention to the rich and the poor. — Voltaire MARGARET ELIZABETH McCAHILL Fairview General Hospital Family Practice Cleveland, Ohio Originally from California, Marty is a College Park graduate. Dur- ing medical school, she has been devoted to Family Practice and out- side of school she is devoted to her own family. Her husband, Jim, is a career Coast Guard officer and they have two children, Jimmy and Peggy, in fourth and second grades respectively. After graduation they will move to Cleveland where Mardy will take her residency in Family Practice. JEANNE MARIE McCAULEY Georgetown University — V.A. Internal Medicine Washington, D.C. Even the rigors of med school could not keep Jeanne from con- tinuing the development of her terpsichoreal talents. Those long legs could often be seen at ballet class leaping and pirouetting. Of greater reknown were the various twirls and gyrations frequently displayed at the local discos. In the unglamorous world of med school, Jeanne participated in CAPP in which she learned that psychiatry was not her primary field of interest. She now goes on to conquer the nation’s capitol. 119 MARK FRANCIS McDONNELL University of Texas Affiliated Hospitals Orthopedic Surgery Houston, Texas Very little is known about Mark’s extracurricular life and deepest thoughts as he refused to complete a yearbook questionnaire: “I don’t fill out those things,” he replied as he raised another mug of beer to his lips. Nonetheless, members of the class are unlikely to ever forget his starring role in the Sophomore Follies where his performance deservedly earned a four star rating. Even in more informal gather- ings, his humor can strike wfith bizarre antics and unique viewpoints always guaranteed to create smiles. JAMES PATRICK McKENNA Malcolm Grove Air Force Base Medical Center Family Practice Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland Jim, like many of our classmates, came to med school from Col- lege Park where he earned his B.S. in Chemistry. His scintillating academic career continued here as he was elected to A.O.A. He recalls his favorite professors as Dr. T. E. Woodward and “the psych professor during junior year whose soliloquys on Tuesday mornings were spellbinding but I can’t remember his name.” Jim is also a firm believer in Law III: “At a cardiac arrest, the first procedure is to take your own pulse.” In his spare time, he enjoys many sports, including basketball, tennis, golf, skiing, and pinball. He and his fiancee, Francie, will be married after graduation. TIMOTHY PATRICK McLAUGHLIN Hartford Hospital Surger y Hartford, Connecticut Tim, whose brilliant red hair is for real, received his B.S. from the American University. As a true gourmet and connoisseur of the arts, he worked as an assistant to the director of the Kennedy Center, has traveled in Europe, and specializes in appreciation of distinctive wines. Tim aspires to eventually become an orthopedic surgeon. “The cure comes from the medicine, and the art of medicine originates in charity. Hence, to be cured is not a work of faith, but one of sympathy. The true ground of medicine is in love.” — Paracelsus 120 ROBERT McLELLAN Saint Agnes Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Bob came to UMAB after an exemplary undergraduate career at Boston College where he majored in Biology and still found time to coach Little League baseball and football teams. At medical school, he participated in the Family Practice tracking program and was eventually elected President of the Maryland Family Practice Club. Bob also served our class as a member of the medical school’s judiciary board. His keen perception of life in the medical world is nicely demonstrated with this clinical pearl: “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, you probably just don’t understand the situation.” JOHN WAYNE MIDDLETON Harrisburg Hospital Family Practice Harrisburg, Pennsylvania A former biology major at Mount St. Mary’s College, John returned home to Waldorf, Md. during the summers to work on his father’s farm. He also spent a year as a lab tech at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington. John’s most memorable experience during med school was his marriage to Susan, a Mount St. Mary’s graduate in accounting. “Without her help,” he says, “none of this would be happening.” They now have a baby daughter, Alice. Outside of medicine, John’s favorite pastimes are fishing, hunting, gardening, and refinishing furniture. John’s advice for those who follow us: “Be honest; above all, be honest to yourself; be in control of your destiny through honesty.” STEVEN MICHAEL MILLER Sinai Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland A native Baltimorean, Steve went to the University of Penn- sylvania for his undergraduate work in biology. While there, he was a sports enthusiast, active in tennis, golf, basketball, softball and soccer. He also worked as a reading tutor and did volunteer work on a psychiatric in-patient ward. Steve has maintained his interest in sports throughout med school. He also got married during this time, and his wife Cindy is a dental student. They plan to stay in Baltimore where Steve hopes to eventually practice OB-GYN. 121 GARY ALAN MILLES Saint Agnes Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland A native New Yorker, Gary attended SUNY at Albany before going on for an M.P.H. degree from Johns Hopkins. During med school, Gary was co-chairman of the Thanksgiving Day Food Drive and won the Community Service Award. While earning membership in A.O.A., he did not neglect his interests in the legal aid society, photography, sailing, and baking bagels. Gary fondly recalls working with truly in- spiring mentors, such as Celeste Woodward, who were committed to excellent patient care. He would rather forget those “pompous, self- righteous” characters who showcased their knowledge to substitute for good care. Gary advises: “Keep your convictions; be cool in the face of intimidation; medicine is fun.” JUDAH A. MINKOYE University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Judah received a B.A. from Yeshiva University prior to his fateful arrival on the doorstep of Howard Hall back in that swelter- ing summer of ’76. For some strange reason, he thought those first two years of med school were a terrible experience. However, the clinical years with its pneumonias and PNDs allowed him to find the true path. Judah was also a frequent participant in the many weekend football and softball games enjoyed by numerous classmates. At home, special in his life, his wife Judy resides. (No, we do not know the prospective names of their future children.) THOMAS PATRICK MORAN Union Memorial Hospital Obstetrics- Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Well known to his classmates as that “wild and crazy guy”, Tom hails from Coronado, CA. He was a math major at the University of California at Santa Barbara and later completed his pre-medical studies at Berkeley. As an ex-President of his high school surfing club, he still rides the waves at every opportunity. He will also be remembered for his outstanding contribution as photographer for the class. He is engaged to marry Rosann Fiastro, an R.N., and they plan to live in Baltimore where Tom will someday practice OB-GYN. 122 MICHAEL JAY MORITZ Thomas Jefferson University Medical Center Surgery Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Four years ago, fresh out of the University of Pennsylvania, Mike arrived in Baltimore to study medicine. He learned many things during this time. For example: “spiteful mighty Jesus” really means spinal meningitis. This clinical pearl combined with a few other lit- tle facts here and there eventually resulted in his election to A.O.A. Out in the real world, Mike enjoys camping, hiking, and playing squash. He was also strongly involved with H.D.M.E., serving as its senior class representative. Mike will begin orthopedics training at Jefferson after his internship. E. JOSEPH MORRIS University of Maryland Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland With a B.S. in Biology from Loyola College firmly in his grasp, Joe shifted his attention downtown to conquer the big bad U. of Md. School of Medicine. Like many classmates, he was devastated by the pharmacology monster but arose victorious with persistence. Junior year firmly established his worthiness as he triumphed impressively with honors in surgery and medicine. The high point of the third year, however, was his marriage to Jeanne who works as a nurse clinician with UMH Pediatric Hematology. His numerous outside activities in- clude sailing, jogging, motorcycling, and the restoration of a summer cottage on the Severn River. MARY KATHLEEN NEWKIRK Martinez V.A. Medical Center Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland In this space, you may write your own blurb about Mary as you know her: 123 MYRON VERNON NICHOLSON Providence Hospital Family Practice Washington, D.C. Myron received his B.S. in Zoology from College Park. Back in those younger days, he was an accomplished athlete and it was obvious on the med school playgrounds that his skills had not diminished. In- doors, Myron served as the vice-president of the UMAB chapter of the Student National Medical Association. A high of the med school years was his marriage to Lynn in June, 1978. That summer, he also com- pleted a family practice preceptorship at the Northwest Medical Center which confirmed his resolution to pursue training in family practice. WILLIAM JOSEPH OKTAVEC Greater Baltimore Medical Center Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Bill, a native Baltimorean, came to med school by way of Loyola College across town. His transcendent talents as a photographer and film developer were invaluable during the production of the year- book. In addition to his curricular studies, Bill found time for work as a lab tech at Johns Hopkins, numerous parties, and frequent so- journs in Ocean City. After graduation, he and his pretty fiancee, Kaki, will be married. ERIC MARCUS ORENSTEIN Loyola University Affiliated Hospital Orthopedic Surgery Maywood, Illinois While a biology major at Georgetown University, Eric spent his summers as a camp counselor for 3-5-year-old kids. Since coming to med school, he has worked hard behind the scenes as a class notetaker and as Medical Council representative. In the remainder of his free time, he composed music on the piano, played backgam- mon with a friend or engaged in a vigorous game of softball. His first delivery in OB was the best part of medical school, and final exam week of sophomore year was definitely the worst. Eric was fascinated by Kawasaki’s Disease and whispered pectoriloquy, and he always will remember, “First do no harm.” 124 KEITH DAVID OSBORN Johns Hopkins Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland “One person can make a difference.” — JFK “We have the unique opportunity to intervene during the vulnerable period of life when someone is faced with illness. It should be our goal to be a haven of warmth and understanding, someone who will devote the extra time and effort to replace despondence and fear with hope and reassurance. Only then can we be truly certain that our newly acquired intelligence has brought excellence to patient care. Only then can we feel confident that we have treated the real disease.” DAVID IRA OTTO University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland After four years in the U.S. Navy, Dave left behind the glories of military life and entered the academic world of College Park which eventually resulted in the grand leap to Baltimore. Amidst the rigors of medical school life, he served as Student Council President 1978- 79. A usually expensive person, Dave developed an irrepressible grin from ear to ear after the recent birth of his son, Mathew. He does ad- mit that his wife, Deborah, participated. DAVID TILDEN OWENS Case Western Reserve Hospital Internal Medicine Cleveland, Ohio Dave is another one of the small group of mystery people in the class. No photograph of him is known to exist. We do have reports, however, that his father is Albert H. Owens, Jr., M.D., one of the editors of The Principles and Practice of Medicine. 125 STEVEN BARRY PALDER University of California Affiliated Hospital Surgery Davis, California Steve graduated from College Park but did not join our class until junior year after two years of medical studies at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. His most memorable experience of these past years occurred when he was visiting a friend at the Senate Office Building at which time he used the same urinal as Jimmy Carter. (No, not at the same time.) His worst experience occurred in the University Hospital cafeteria where one day he attempted to eat “lunch”. CRAIG HAROLD PAUL Baylor College Affiliated Hospitals Internal Medicine — Primary Care Houston, Texas Upon graduating from Johns Hopkins University, Craig did postgraduate work in pharmacology at Howard University. He started his medical studies in Guadalajara, where he founded a free medical clinic. After returning to Baltimore, he worked in Baltimore’s Spanish neighborhoods and for this received the City of Baltimore Mayor’s Citation. Acceptance to the University of Maryland was his most memorable experience. His favorite disease is Montezuma’s revenge — except when he has it. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” RUSSELL KEITH PORTENOY St. Lukes Hospital Center Internal Medicine New York, New York Russ received both B.A. and B.S. degrees from Cornell University before coming to Maryland. Here he maintained a high level of per- formance and was elected to A.O.A. Earning this honor was not without hardships, however, as he described his worst experience as the oral final exam in junior medicine at the hands of Dr. Pachuta. Further on down the line, Russ sees an academic career in Neurology. (His favorite disease is Kuru.) 126 GUY H. POSEY Siouxland Medical Center Family Practice Sioux City, Iowa Guy graduated from College Park in Anthropology before nar- rowing his interests to medicine. His outside interests are quite various, ranging from playing saxophone professionally to com- peting in noncompetitive outdoor sports. The most enduring moments Guy recalls are those “times I have been able to make a difficult or tragic situation easier for someone.” He plans a career in family practice somewhere out west. Before leaving the area, he gives these words of advice: “Don’t forget to practice the art, as well as the science of medicine.” CATHY ANN POWERS University of Maryland Hospital Obstetrics Baltimore, Maryland Cathy entered the class of 1980 after completing her undergraduate studies at UMBC. During junior year, she served our class as a Student Council representative. Her rise to stardom, however, occurred during the Sophomore Follies in which she played the innocent victim of those “two wild and crazy guys.” The critics raved then and they still slobber now. MICHAEL FRANCIS PRATT Naval Regional Medical Center Internal Medicine San Diego, California Back in his younger days, El Presidente graduated from College Park and then served in the Navy for a few years as a hospital corp- sman and laboratory officer. After his arrival in Baltimore, he quickly rose to the top spot where he served the class well for four years. As our fearless leader, he courageously and selflessly battled the titans, ogres, and other nasties of UMAB to make medical school a nicer place for us and our children. Away from the ivory tower, Mike enjoys tennis, basketball, and scuba diving. Mike also thanks Dr. T. Woodward for his selfless dedication to teaching medical students. 127 KIRBY DOUGLAS REKEDAL Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Kirby, who will be remembered as one of the more studious members’ of the class, always thought that the best part of any day was at the end when he went home to his family. He developed an early interest in pediatrics and obviously decided on a vigorous training. His favorite child (at this point in time) is Jonathon, the baby born to him and his wife during junior year.

During his summers, he did research in biochemistry which resulted in a paper on cholesteral metabolism. While in medical school, Mike married his wife, Les, a graduate oi the University of Baltimore School of Law. Mike likes to play basketball, tennis and sail in his free time. An interest in the arts is obvious with his hobbies of wood carving and stained glass collec- ting. In the near future, Mike plans to pursue a career in orthopedic surgery. 128 PAUL MICHAEL RIVAS University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland Paul graduated from Loyola College with a double major in Biology and Philosophy. Upon completing his years of medical school he leaves this message: “To Mom and Dad, Gary, Pete, Bob, John, Mark, Mike and most of all Natalie — Thank you, with all my Heart.” “If you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs, and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you . . .” — Rudyard Kipling ROGER JOHN ROBERTSON Charity Hospital — Tulane Hospital Surgery New Orleans, Louisiana A native of Salisbury, Md., Roger got his B.S. at College Park followed by graduate studies in bio-chemistry at Gerogetown Univer- sity. Another devoted athlete, Roger was a motivating force in in- tramural volleyball and basketball during medical school. He also con- tributed his talents to the class Follies and this yearbook. He was active in the Family Practice Longitudinal Elective, but he soon found a more compelling interest in his Dean ' s Fellowship in orthopedic surgery. He plans to continue research in bone growth markers and to pursue special interests in musculoskeletal trauma and cervical spine surgery. TIMOTHY JOHN RODGERS Hahnemann Medical College Hospital Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Tim received a B.A. from JHU and worked as a research associate at BCRC before entering med school. Outside the classroom and hospital he has been active in sports, playing squash, basketball, and fencing. He also enjoys backpacking when time permits. He hopes for a future career as a professor in a university setting. Tim believes in Law VIII from House of God: “They can always hurt you more.” By the way, if you want to know the latest class gossip, ask Tim. If he doesn’t know what’s happening, he’s sure to find out soon. 129 WILLIAM MICHAEL ROGERS University of Maryland Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Mike joined the class of 1980 after completing a B.A. at Johns Hopkins. His years in medical school were highlighted by the good times he had with the Air Hockey Team and the Lexington Market Lunch Bunch as well as playing racquetball and joining the Federal Hill Expedition and the Auxiliary Histology Lab. CHARLES F. ROMANO Wilmington Medical Center Internal Medicine Wilmington, Delaware Charlie promised to sit for a portrait. Charlie promised to fill out a questionnaire. Charlie forgot. ALAN JOHN ROSENBLOOM Kaiser Fdn. — Santa Clara Medical Center Internal Medicine Santa Clara, California Al, a Baltimore native, was one of the early settlers of Hollins Street. He deserves distinction as the first person to put some “life” into the class. The now famous “nuclear nissle” comment and the first class party at Al’s house were critical in the development of the Class of 1980 from a bunch of stuffed shirts into a class of human beings. As an adventurous person, Al appreciates the pleasures of spelunking and hang gliding. And now, having conquered Baltimore, he moves on to the big time in California. 130 RICHARD BARNETT ROSSE Georgetown University Medical Center Psychiatry Washington, D.C. Richard entered the medical maze after obtaining a zoology degree from College Park. He describes the medical profession as “great, but the system for disseminating knowledge is based on anti- quated educational technology.” Also, “the professors are a bunch of type A personalities.” Understandably, Richard’s worst ex- perience of the past four years was being the recipient of a sigmoidoscopy. (No, he doesn’t mean the pharmacology course.) Now, he admits that the great poetess was right: there is no inner peace — only nervousness and death. DOUGLAS MICHAEL RUDISILL SUNY — Upstate Medical Center Pediatrics Syracuse, New York Those Med School blues. I’ve known them too: Broken spirits; the good times too few I’ve seen your face turn pale from the race Happiness and smiles kept away by denial. Yet I know too soon, for sure, we’ll forget that whitewater pace and our human debts. (Now don’t misunderstand me, somewhere there shines a sunny memory) But should I chance meeting some College Bright all enthused, I won’t be amused. I’ll just tell him about the Med School blues. ROBERT LEE RUDOLPH, II Baylor College Affiliated Hospital Surgery Houston, Texas Bob joined the class of ’80 after beginning his studies at Univer- sidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. Formerly from Marietta, Ohio, he has served as president of the “Ohio Committee” during med school. His most memorable experience of the past few years was his off-campus elective in the Ben Taub ER of Baylor University. He has found a special interest in the Schwartzman Burtter Syndrome. Bob agrees with the quotation “Great Spirits have always en- countered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” 131 JAMES W. RUPPEL University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland ' " Thought can only lead us to the knowledge that it cannot give us the ultimate answer.” A native Californian, Jim received a B.A. from San Diego and then traveled, worked, and played for a few years before coming to Maryland. Here, he attempted to establish a campus film series. He especially enjoyed making the films for Freshman and Sophomore Follies. Jim’s favorite disease is " that which occurs between birth and death.” The whole second year was a bad experience for him. How did he make it through? " Love and wine are euphoria,” he says. MARTHA FISHER RYKER Greater Baltimore Medical Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Mikey had rather extensive experience as a computer programmer before deciding on a medical career. Her best remembered episode of the last four years occurred when she had to take the pharm final while lying in a hospital bed which had been conveniently wheeled into the Howard Hall labs. Outside of med school, she enjoys sail- ing, fishing, dancing, and frequent trips to O.C. Somehow, she also finds time to raise two teenage children. After her residency, she plans a private practice either in Baltimore or on the Eastern Shore. ALAN JEFFREY SACKS George Washington University Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Washington, D.C. A Silver Spring native, A1 completed his undergrad work at Emory prior to med school. Here, he participated in CAPP but nonetheless decided that psychiatry was not in his future. He will probably be best remembered for his devotion to the fine art of chain smoking: An endless stream of filterless Pall Malls being transformed into a cloud of smoke. The photo here is a rare one of A1 without a lit cigarette. 132 CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT SCHARLING Washington Hospital Center Obstetrics- Gynecology Washington, D.C. “Keep on Smiling.” Chris received a B.S. in psychology and an M.S. in physiology from Maryland before succumbing to the charms of medical school. As a man who knows how to enjoy life Chris specializes in scuba diving, psychic experiences and appreciation of women. “It’s hard to know when to respond to the seductiveness of the world and when to respond to the challenge. If the world were merely seductive that would be easy. If it were merely challenging that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between the desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world . . . this makes it hard to plan the day.” — E. B. White ROBERT SCOTT SCHEPP Union Memorial Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Bob graduated from the Johns Hopkins University, receiving both his B.A. and M.A. degrees in chemistry. Upon arriving at UMAB. he became intimately involved in neurology, working on the problem of head trauma, resulting in several publications in press. It is no surprise that Bob gets a thrill when he sees a patient with papilledema. When Bob is not working, he spends his free moments with his wife. Susan, who is also a future M.D. He also enjoys bike riding, racquetball. and stamp collecting. In the future Bob plans a career in neurosurgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine — Yeshiva University. ROBERT LAWRENCE SCHIFF Prince Georges General Hospital Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland Bob received his B.S. in chemistry at College Park and did research for 4 years before deciding to get his hands dirty in the practical world of medicine. He remembers cracking a ninety-year- old woman ' s sternum and ribs while “saving her life”. Another class sports enthusiast, he played intramural basketball, tennis and rac- quetball. A believer in “learning the basics and having fun,” Bob arranged to do senior ambulatory in beautiful downtown Honolulu! “You either have what you want or the reasons that you don’t.” 133 DAVID JAY SCHNEIDERMAN Prince Georges General Hospital Internal Medicine Cheverly, Maryland Dave studied at College Park before returning to Charm City for a stint at UMAB. You may remember that he served as the Freshman Class Vice-President. However, you probably do not know that he delves into a number of sports including scuba diving, snow and water skiing, basketball, and motorcycling. With these things in mind, it is not difficult to understand why Dave remembers his senior am- bulatory rotation in Honolulu so fondly. “Some patients though conscious that their condition is perilous, nonetheless recover solely based on their contentment with the good graces of their physician.” — Hippocras ALVIN RANDOLPH SILLS University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland Alvin did his undergraduate studies at Loyola College, where he was awarded the Loyola Presidential Scholarship. During his years as a medical student, he actively pursued outside interests in photography and auto mechanics. Special in his life at this time is his fiancee, CreSaundra, Director of Career Planning and Place- ment at Loyola College. Alvin especially enjoyed his pediatrics rota- tion here and he looks forward to a career in primary care. He is in- spired by “Manchild in the Promised Land.” KENNETH H. C. SILVER Good Samaritan Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Ken received a B.S. in zoology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He then spent a year working as a lab technician before taking off to spend four months traveling in Mexico. (After- wards, he spent two months with diarrhea before fully recovering from his trip.) Ken’s varied activities during med school included reading, listening to music, tennis, jogging, movies, and drugs. Of major significance was his marriage to Susan Dalto, who is ad- ministrator in a computer analysis firm and also enjoys photography. The past four years have been one big bad experience for Ken and he advises following generations to “Beware!” After a year of internal medicine, Ken plans a residency in preventive medicine and public health research. 134 ROY THOMAS SMOOT, JR. University of Maryland Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Roy earned the admiration of many classmates when he discovered during the last Pharm exam that there is such a thing as a J negative t-score. This, however, did not adversely affect his academic pursuits as evidnced by his election to A.O.A. One of his more enlightening texts was The House of God. Roy also enjoys hunting, camping, and spending time with his daughter. After com- pletion of his residency, he would like to settle in a semi -rural com- munity. His advice to future students: “Don’t think about it, just do it. If you think too long you may change your mind, for there are crtainly easier ways to turn a buck.” MARC DENNIS SOKOLOW Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Marc arrived at UMAB after completion of his undergraduate work at College Park. He supplemented his curricular activities here with a Family Practice preceptorship and a Medicine externship but still found time to enjoy basketball, camping, and listening to music, especially that of Jerry Garcia. Forever haunting his memories will be that unbelievable night as a senior on 3B, when he had four admis- sions, three patients in the MICU, two arrests, (and a partridge in a pear tree.) Adding up all of his experiences here, Marc feels that the best way to get through medical school is to “w ork hard and play hard.” LOUIS WILLIAM SOLOMON University of Maryland Hospital Surgery Baltimore, Maryland Lou, who grew up in Detroit, came to Baltimore and worked in the Shock-Trauma lab before starting med school. During his Shock-Trauma experiences, he met a nice girl who eventually became his wife. In his spare time, Lou enjoys writing poems and contributed a few of his works to the yearbook. Notice how he slyly uses the pen name of Nomolos. After his internship, he will begin his neurosurgery training. 135 SALLY ELIZABETH SONDERGAARD Sinai Hospital Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland Sally transferred to Maryland after completing the freshman year at St. Louis University School of Medicine. In between her studies, Sally likes to travel and has spent time in Europe and the Caribbean Islands. Sally is a graduate of Brown University, and her husband, Neal, is a physical chemist at Johns Hopkins University. Her worst experience of recent years was “filling out forms”, so you can see how lucky we are to have what you see here. Sally plans a private practice in OB GYN. CHARLES SHERMAN SPECHT Case Western Reserve — Cleveland Metropolitan Hospital Internal Medicin Cleveland, Ohio “There is a basic principle in medicine, which often takes years to appreciate, and it is this: that one must love Life, in all its forms and aspects. And when this Principle comes to guide one’s every thought, decision, and action, then one becomes a Physician. There is no greater aspiration.” LADD SPIEGEL The New York Hospital Psychiatry New York, New York Link came to the class of 1980 with a B.A. degree from Amherst College and a B.S. from Columbia University. Link did not keep a low profile while at Maryland despite what you may think. He found time to work as an AMSA representative and treasurer and served on the Year I and Year II Committees. An artist at heart, Link was the talented cartoonist for the Freshman Follieprogram. Being a CAPP student from the beginning, he still plans to be a shrink. 136 PETER PAUL STAMAS Baltimore City Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Pete received his B.A. from UPenn and did graduate work in physiology at Maryland before becoming an MSII. This is why he is one of the lucky few in our class who respect and love the kidney. He advises future students to “be prepared to forget all the signifi- cant information you knew about the human body and memorize much trivia.” An avid squash and tennis player, his most memorable med school experience was knocking out Bob McLellan’s tooth with a squash racquet. His favorite disease is any that would eliminate Dr. Albuquerque. After a trip to Europe with Paul Rivas, Pete will do an internal medicine residency and some emergency room work in Baltimore community hospitals. HENRY HOLLINGSWORTH STARTZMAN III Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Chip was one of a small contingency from Duke University where he received his A.B. degree in Chemistry and Mathematics. A future obstetrician gynecologist, he found his first delivery to be the most morable experience during his four years at UMAB. Oddly enough. Chip’s favorite illness is pregnancy (Is pregnancy a disease?). As others did in the class, Chip got engaged during his senior year. His fiancee is a recent graduate from the UMAB School of Nursing, and they plan an August, 1980 wedding. In his free time, Chip enjoys playing basketball, tennis, bowling, and video games. HENRY WILLIAM SUNDERMIER University of Maryland Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland After completing a B.S. in biochemistry at California State Polytechnic U., Henry and his wife, Jean, travelled east against the sun belt migration. Due to diversified interests, he enrolled in a combined MD PhD program in pharmacology and the family prac- tice longitudinal experience. But by the end of sophomore year, it became apparent that full time primary care was more interesting and enjoyable. Concurrent with studying medicine,enry also recorded seven original “Top 40” songs playing alto sax which were aired on a local radio station. 137 SANDRA RICHTER TAKAI Sinai Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland Sandy married Ricky just before starting med school and they’re still together. They didn’t believe all of those scary statistics dumped on us at the beginning of school. As a med student, Sandy was an average AOA member elected as a junior. She also participated in CAPP and was actually on the verge of plunging into a psychiatric career when she stepped back to take another look and decided that lit- tle kids would be more fun. ERIC STEVEN TANNENBAUM University of Maryland Hospital Internal Medicine — Primary Care Baltimore, Maryland After receiving a B.S. degree from University of Pittsburgh in 1968, Eric worked full-time for the IBM corporation until 1976. During that time he also attained an M.S. degree from College Park. He commuted to Baltimore from Silver Spring where he lived with his wife Jo- Ellen, an elementary school teacher. A member of AOA, Eric plans a future practice in general internal medicine. PHUONG DUC TRINH Medical College of Pennsylvania Internal Medicine Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A graduate of MIT, Phuong was vice-president of the class as a junior and senior. He will long be remembered for his excellent contribution as organizer and director of Freshman and Sophomore Follies. He enjoys traveling, stamp collecting, and some sports, and his collection of popular music records is unsurpassed. A loyal theatre patron, he seldom missed a good show at Center Stage or The Mechanic. Phuong is engaged to Kim Thu, who is pursuing a degree in accounting in California. They plan a traditional Vietnamese wedding in the future. 138 DOROTHEA ADLENA STERN TUCKER “And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.” — Mark 10:44 Dorothea has indeed devoted her “free” time in medical school to serving her school and community. She was president of the Stu- dent National Medical Association for a year and then became co- editor of the Aesclepian for two years. In addition, she received the American Medical Women’s Association Award for her outstanding community involvement and outreach. KATHLEEN MARY TULLY Franklin Square Hospital Family Practice Baltimore, Maryland A native of Bowie, Md., Kate attended Villanova University where she received a B.S. in biology. While in medical school, she put her wit and talent to good use for the class of 1980, helping to make a success of Follies and the Terrae Maria Medicus. Kate will be remembered as th brilliant author of the “Faculty Poker Game” and the “Un- touchables.” She was also another dedicated patron of the theatre. PAUL ADRIAN TURNER Medical College of Wisconsin, Affil. Internal Medicine Milwaukee, Wisconsin Paul behaved as one of the more civilized members of the class. Most of us will remember a cleanly shavenface rather tan the hir- sute visage see at the right. He attende class partis often and was always nealy dressed. He was one ofthe along so smooly. He now .heads half waywest for his internal medicine training. A true test of his civility will be whether he can resist from beating our heads in after reading this blurb. 139 JAMES JOSEPH WALSH, JR. State University — Kings County Medical Center Surgery Brooklyn, New York A native of Staten Island, N.Y., Jay journeyed to this part of the world after four years of SUNY at Albany where he majored in Biology. From the beginning, it seemed that he was destined for the surgical life. He attacked the gross anatomy course with enthusiasm that made it his most memorable period of med school. He subse- quently also did some anatomy research on a Dean’s Fellowship. When not academically inclined. Jay likes to ski, swim, and party. (It’s dif- ficult to forget the numerous parties staged by him, Tom, and Tim.) Jay was also rather amazed at how “Dr. Holden taught more psych in six lectures than the first two years combined.” JONATN LLOYD WEKER Yale — New Ha veil Medical Center Psychiatry New Haven, Connecticut Jon is a cum laude graduate of " Harvard College. “My list of distinguished publications is so long I can hardly begin to list them in this space.” A CAPP student, he plans a career as a psychiatrist. PAUL EMERSON WHITTAKER Silas B. Hays Army Hospital Family Practice Fort Ord, California Paul came to Maryland from Duke University. Prior to embark- ing into medicine, he spent his free time engaged in travel through Europe, skiing, bridge, guitar, trombone, and numerous sports in- cluding basketball, volleyball, and tennis. Paul’s wife, Ann, has a B.A. in music and is a music teacher. Of Paul’s experiences of dubious worth at medical school, he recalls the EST training and any rotation at University Hospital. He also has the delightful honor of having had all his cars stolen while in Baltimore. In the future, Paul urges all involved to watch out for “Pachutoidosis.” 140 FRANCIS LEONARD WIEGMANN, JR. Mercy Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Imagine Pete Lapinsky’s surprise when he found that his 2am ad- mission at the VA was Fran, lying on a stretcher in the screening clinic, pretending to be in DTs! Fran won’t forget that, either. Such pranks helped him through those 35 -hour days. A graduate of JHU, Fran was active in lacrosse, football, and soccer there. Is it any sur- prise that he married an elementary school physical education in- structor? His marriage to Lisa was his best experience of the past 4 years. Fran enjoys running to keep in shape and also keeps an in- terest in parrots and tropical fish. He urges future classes to study hard and play hard because it is a long road to travel. GWENDOLYN MARY WIGAND Maryland General Hospital Flexible Baltimore, Maryland Gwen, the blond bombshell of the class, was born and raised on Staten Island. She came to UMAB after completing her undergraduate work at College Park. During med school, she met Bruce, a handsome young man, who eventually became her hus- band. She also contributed to the production of this here yearbook. At this point, she is not completely certain of what course her postgraduate training will take. Internal medicine seems to be the most likely choice. CHARLES AKIRA WILKES Eastern Virginia Graduate Medical Center Obstetrics- Gynecology Norfolk, Virginia Charlie graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in chemistry. After coming to Baltimore, much of his free time was spent writing computer programs in health -related fields. These included an Accounts Receivable Program which was marketed by IBM for medical group practices. Is it any wonder that Charlie was seen playing with PLATO until the wee hours? He also found time to work as a tour guide for med school applicants and took a family practice preceptorship. 141 CARTER J. WILLIAMS Greater Baltimore Medical Center Obstetrics-Gynecology Baltimore, Maryland VICTORIA MAE WOOLSTON Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Baltimore, Maryland Vicki grew up in Easton, Md. and attended Salisbury State Col- lege. She completed her B.S. there and did one year of graduate work in biological sciences at UMBC before joining the Class of 1980. During medical school, she took an active interest in family practice, as evidenced by her participation in the longitudinal elec- tive, a preceptorship, and the Family Practice Club. Her classmates will undoubtedly remember her outstanding performance in the Sophomore Follies as the anchor person on the news. In quieter moments, Vicki can be found engrossed in her needlepoint. After her internal medicine residency, she plans to have a private practice. CHERYL WRIGHT- WILSON Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatrics Baltimore, Maryland To the left is a photograph of Cheryl who was born on Christmas Day. 142 REMARKS OF MICHAEL PRATT AT COMMENCEMENT A person is never more on trial than at a moment of excessive good fortune! As we receive our diplomas, we celebrate with our families and friends the culmination of many hours of labor directed towards attain- ment of a goal which today’s society equates with excessive good fortune: that of a professional degree. It is now our task to pursue the challenge and bear the responsibilities which accompany the acceptance of this degree. First and foremost, we must guard against complacency. As Emerson once said, “Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.” Our past accomplishments and our present jubilation must not eclipse our future efforts. An example of this type of continuing dedication can be taken from the professional life of Dr. Theodore E. Woodward, who will retire in 1981 after 27 years of brilliant leadership as Chairman of Medicine at this University. The vitality of his intellectual energy has been felt by many of his colleagues and students over the years through his unique commitment to medical education. As ex- emplified by Dr. Woodward, we have a responsibility to society and to ourselves which requires that we con- tinue our endeavors with the same energy and purpose that have made this commencement ceremony possi- ble for each one of us. However, we must proceed with a modicum of caution. Herman Kahn, noted director of the Hudson In- stitute, used the term “educated incapacity” to describe the increasingly prevalent situation in which the quantity of educational training often seems inversely proportional to one’s ability to recognize certain issues and deal with them appropriately. The process of acquiring an advanced degree necessarily involves selective indoctrination in a highly specialized environment. Within this framework, it is often difficult to maintain a balanced attitude. As we set out to practice what we’ve been taught, we must keep our minds open to new ideas and concepts so that we never lose our ability to deal rationally with our environment. Perhaps our greatest challenge, on this special day, is to achieve unity of purpose among the professions represented here. In a world fraught with such political upheaval and human suffering, it seems an impossi- ble task to retain one’s idealism and maintain an interest in the welfare of mankind. However, at a time when the world situation is so unstable, it is critical that we do so. We will be living with increasing demands, pressures, and moral ambiguities. The only acceptable solution is to make a concerted effort to focus the remnants of our idealism in the face of reality and apply them productively. As an educated body of intellectual people, we have tremendous potential to significantly advance the quality of life in this country. But the time has come to realize, that in order to fully achieve our potential as professionals, we must start working together more effectively. The future will offer more and more oppor- tunities for interprofessionalism. If we choose not to take advantage of these opportunities, they will even- tually be legislated for us. The lack of cooperation between professions must cease. We must make the effort to understand each other’s language and style of operation. And let us begin to trust one another more completely. We often wrongfully assume this concept to be patently obvious, and yet it has repeatedly eluded us in the past. Our constant awareness of this goal and attention to the details of its accomplishment in our daily lives is paramount. As prospective graduates, we can each do our small part in striving for this unity which will be so important. Finally, we should endeavor to put this commencement into perspective. Many feel that we are finished here today! But, in fact, our present situation is merely the blueprint for a project which is just beginning. In the future, we must return again and again to the fountain of education. Let us reflect on the words of Kahlil Gibran who said, “This day has ended. It is closing upon us even as the waterlily upon its own tomorrow. What was given us here we shall keep. And if it suffices not, then again must we come together and together stretch our hands unto the giver.” 143 IN MEMORIAM LOUIS JAMES GEORGETON ALONG THE ROAD Joy at the start Fear in the journey Joy in the coming home A part of the heart Gets lost in the learning Somewhere along the road Along the road Your path may wander A pilgrim’s faith may fail Absence makes the heart grow fonder Darkness obscures the trail Cursing the quest Courting disaster Measureless nights forbode Moments of rest Glimpses of laughter Are treasured along the road Along the road Your steps may stumble Your thoughts may start to stray But through it all a light held humble Levels and lights your way — Dan Fogelberg 145 146 147 148 149 ALUMNI BANQUET MAY 28, 1980 150 151 152 To honor four years of service as Class President. 153 154 155 CLASS OF 1980 ACADEMIC FACULTY GOLD MEDAL FOR OUTSTANDING QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE Keith David Osborn SUMMA CUM LAUDE Judith Falloon Keith David Osborn MAGNA CUM LAUDE Karen Jean Chayt Jane Lee Chen Lee J.
