Class of 1953

After 10 years of retirement, I was asked to teach a course in the Spring semester, 2011. It was exciting to be back in the classroom, but I underestimated how much paper grading was involved.

In July, celebrated my 80th birthday; in August, I gave a 45 min. voice recital (Schumann and Ralph Vaughan Williams); and in September, I will lead a small group to climb one of Colorado's 14ers.

Life is good, and I look forward to another visit to Chapel Hill - preferably for some kind of reunion.

With best wishes to all,
YITB,
Wrapper

What I remember best is Mrs. Tanner, our housemother when I was there in the late 40s early 50s. She was a caring, kind person.

I have retired from the active practice of OB/GYN in the State of North Carolina. The outrageously high cost of professional liability forced me out of my own practice. I have had to seek work as a locum tenens physician, working with the Native American population. I have spent a month with the Navajo and Hopi Indians in Arizona and leave in two weeks for a month in Oklahoma to work with the Cherokee Indians. I hope to go to New Zealand for six months early in 2004 to continue working in my specialty. I am not ready to retire and did not desire retirement. Trial attorneys are killing the practice of medicine in North Carolina unless. Until our North Carolina citizens realize just what is happening to medicine in North Carolina, there will be an increasing shortage of physicians. I respectively request that my fraternity brothers encourage their state senators and representatives to back reform of our present antiquated system. Our state senators made a half-hearted effort to submit a reform bill for consideration next spring; North Carolina needs more.
