Distinguished Graduates Newell Sill Jenkins Class of 1863 (This is the third in a series of articles) It would have seemed quite natural for Newell Sill Jenkins to look to the sea for a career as he completed his years in the secondary schools of Bangor, Maine. His was a family of shipbuilders, generation after generation, and the American Clip- per ships that sailed from Bangor ' s har- bor must certainly have appealed to young Newell. By the time of his high school graduation, however, his mother was beg- ging him to follow a less hazardous occupation. He followed his mother ' s sug- gestions and entered the Baltimore Col- lege of Dental Surgery ; he was graduated in the spring of 1863, with the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. The young Doctor Jenkins returned to Bangor to establish a general practice. By the end of the Civil War Jenkins had made a decision to move to the Continent of Europe to spend his years in a climate more suitable to his rather poor health. He eventually chose Dresden as his resi- dence, and he practiced there forty-five years. Doctor Jenkins ' patients included many people whe represented the nobility and royalty of Germany, Russia, Austria and Italy. He, as well as many of his patients, was rather appalled at a vogue which made excessive use of gold as a restorative material in anterior teeth. Consequently, Jenkins became interested in the various porcelain manipulations that were used in the large industries in Dresden. He spent many hours in research in an at- tempt to adapt these porcelain procedures to operative dentistry. The eventual re- sult of his labors was the introduction to dentistry of a vastly improved material, which he named " porcelain enamel " — a substance which closely resembled our modern porcelain restorative materials. Jenkins became extraordinarily efficient with the manipulation of porcelains, and his " porcelain enamel " inlay technique was perhaps his most notable accomplish- ment in operative dentistry. From a geographical point of view, Newell Sill Jenkins carried on one of the most extensive practices known in the history of modern dentistry. For many years he practiced one month each year in Vienna and Warsaw, and was many times consulted on American affairs by the German Imperial Foreign Office. He took exceptional interest in Near East situations and often visited Turkey, Greece and the other Balkan countries, bearing letters of introduction to their rulers. Though Doctor Jenkins spent most of his productive years in Europe, he did not lose his love for his native country. After his retirement from the practice of dentis- try, he spent much time in New Haven, Connecticut, and became an honorary member of several American dental so- cieties. On one occasion, a group of den- tists from areas throughout the nation assembled in New Haven to pay tribute to him for his distinguished service to den- tistry. Following the Armistice, Doctor Jen- kins again made plans to sail for Europe. On September 18, 1919, he embarked from New York with the intention of spending the winter in Southern France. On the morning of September 25, Newell Jenkins was striken suddenly on board ship in the harbor of Le Havre, France. After seventy-nine years of a rich and full life, Jenkins had died. His body was returned to the United States, and interment was in a small cemetery in his native Bangor.
