at the Charlotte Memorial Hospital,
Charlotte, N. C. for one year after
which he spent three years in Radiolo-
gy Residency at Barnes Hospital in
St. Louis. Then the following two
years were spent with Uncle Sam in

the Air Force at Hampton, Va. He
went back to St. Louis to practice in
a large Radiology CUnic when the op-
portunity opened up in the Radiology
Department at the Charlotte Memo-
rial Hospital. He said his title is as-
sistant to the janitor, but actually he
is one of two Radiologists at the Hos-
pital and a welcome addition to the

James Edward McKinney (Ed) is
in a group of three doing General
Practice in Chatt:.nooga, Tenn. at 20 5
Spears Ave. This group is expanding
and hopes to have a fourth man soon.
He says that married life with three
little girls keeps him busy in his spare
time, but adds that it is certainly
enjoyable. Ed suggests that we have
a reunion at The Hill sometime real

George A. McLemore settled in
NYC in July, 1956 in the practice of
Internal Medicine. After he left UNC
he graduated from Harvard and in-
terned at Peter Bent Brigham Hospi-
tal. Then he had a wonderful year in
England (1950-51) doing Cardio-
pulmonary function, and returned to
Peter Bent Brigham to complete his
Senior Residency (after two years in
the Army) working with Dr. Sam
Levine in Cardiology from about '5 3
to '5 5. George has his Boards in In-
ternal Medicine. He is still single but
very eligible. (Address incidentally is
445 East 68th St., New York.)

George Nassef is really most en-
thusiastic ?bout his set-up in West
Palm Beach, Fla. (Address: 2 505
North Dixie.) After he left UNC and
graduated from Jefferson in the City
of Brotherly Love, he went to Bethle-
hem, Pa. for his rotating internship.
Following this he took a trip out to
Indiana where he went into General
Practice for a few years, then had a
preceptorship in General and Gyn
Surgery in La Porte, Ind. In 19 54 he


heeded Uncle Sam's call and went
into the Navy where he was fortu-
nate enough to be assigned to Ports-
mouth, Va. and Miami in OB-Gyn for
two years. After release from the
Navy, he opened an office in West
Palm Beach with practice limited to
Ob-Gyn. George is not married, but
he has a home on the bay and a small
boat. He says that he can jump into
his skiff and be fishing and boating
in three minutes or can take a swim
in his backyard before breakfast.

Paul Nolan graduated at the Univ.
of Maryland in 1948 and interned at
Tampa (Fla.) Municipal Hospital,
1948-49. He practiced in Lawndale,
N. C. for two years then entered the
Regular Air Force as Flight Surgeon
in Amarillo, Texas, California and
Langley Field, Va. for four and a half
years. When he was released from
service he began General Practice in
King's Mountain, N. C. and is still
there. In 1949 he married Anne Lewis
from St. Petersburg, Fla., and they
have adopted twin boys (Johnny and
Tommy) who are now two and a half
years old.

Joseph Stafford Redding (Joe)
claims that I know the details of his
checkered career as well as he does,
so if I take liberties, I have license —
poetic license, that is. Dates I do not
remember, but Joe graduated from
the University of Maryland and, I
believe then came to Rex Hospital in
Raleigh. He started private practice
in Albemarle, N. C. and later moved
to Chester, S. C. where he had an as-
sociate. However, last year he decided
to return to The Hill and he is now
at the N. C. Memorial Hospital in
the Anesthesiology Department. He
married Nancy before he started prac-
tice and they have three beautiful
children: Jeff, Lorie and Davy, which
Joe claims to be his only worthy ac-

For the sake of alphabetical con-
tinuity I will inject a brief review of

my "Curriculum vitae" at this point:
Mary Lou Rutledge McGregor grad-
uated at Temple University School of
Medicine in 1948 and had a year of
rotating internship and one year of
assistant residency in Pediatrics at the
University of Pennsylvania Hospital.
In 19 5 0, I headed South for the second
year of assistant residency in Pedia-
trics at Duke Hospital. In 1951, I
came to Charlotte into a group prac-
tice of Pediatrics and am still at it.
I married William E. McGregor in
Nov., 1952. He is a decorator and I
maintain my maiden name for prac-
tice since I had been using it that
way a year and a half when I was *
married. We have no children as yet.
Certified by the American Board of
Pediatrics, 195 5.

William Edward Sheely (Bill) is in
practice with another Radiologist in
Washington, D. C. Bill, Ed McKin-
ney, Johnny Weyher, Bob Lackey,
George Nassef, Henry Stenhouse, and
Ed Webb all left UNC and went off
to Jefferson. Bill says that he has not
been in close enough contact with any
of the class since to suit him. Here is
another suggestion that we plan a
get-together. XZhile in internship. Bill
married and their third girl was born
three days before Christmas. Does
anyone have a formula for boys?
Write Bill. He left PGH for two years
in the Navy and returned to finish
three years of residency in Radiology
after which he settled in Washington.
However, his home address is Spring-
field, Va. which he says still makes
him a Southerner in name as well as

Henry Frank Starr, Jr. (Frank) is
now Assistant Medical Director of
Pilot Life Insurance Company in
Greensboro, N. C. and likes the work
very much better than two years in
the Army which took him away from
practice in 195 3. Frank has the op-
portunity to see or correspond with
many of our class members in the


course of his work, and he attended a
lecture in New Orleans last year by
Dr. Holman on the subject of Athero-
sclerosis (believe it or not). Frank's
residency training was interrupted by
a year of travel in Europe with a
well-heeled patient on his private
yacht (the world's largest — size of a
destroyer). Maybe we can get him to
tell us more about this trip. Frank
is married and has three Httle girls.
No formula here.

Henry Merritt Stenhause graduated
at Jefferson in 1948 and interned at
Philadelphia General Hospital, 1948-
5 and for the next two years was

Orleans (19 5 2-55) and passed the
American Board of Radiology in
Washington in Sept., 1957. He has
been in private practice of Radiology
at St. Joseph Infirmary, Atlanta, Ga.

enjoyable and interesting. In 19 5 5 he

ture. M. A. graduated from the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania School of
Medicine and interned at the Medical
College of Virginia, Richmond, Va.,
then went back to Philadelphia where
she married Sam Fox, an Internist on
active duty with the Navy, and com-
pleted her residency requirements for
her Boards. After that, she joined Sam
for foreign service in England and
Egypt. I mentioned that she has just
opened her office in Bethesda, she is
also between the written and oral
portions of her Board Exam, has three
children and is expecting another in
March. Boy!!!

Thomas Early Whitaker (Tom)
left UNC to graduate at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania School of Medi-
cine in '48. He took his internship in
Bridgeport, Conn., and his residency
in Radiology in D. C. He has been in
private practice in Greenville, S. C.
since July, 1952 and a Diplomat of
the American Board of Radiology
since December, 19 52. He is a partner
in a group. Tom claims to have
the same wife. Marguerite, and an
image of each of them, girl 6 Yz and
a boy 3. He says that he fancies that
they work too hard but he does find
time for a little fishing and a few
other diversions "all highly moral?"
He seems to enjoy his work and says
that he would not change professions
under any circumstances.

Roger M. Winborne, Jr. has been in
solo practice of Internal Medicine and

Class of 1947

WilUam Herbert Bland (W. H.) is
in solo practice at Cary, N. C. and is
looking for a young General Practi-
tioner to come to Cary to fill a va-
cancy left by the death of an older
man, and he says there is a good op-
portunity there. After one year of ro-
tating internship at Rex Hospital, Ra-
leigh, N. C. 1949, he began private
practice. This was interrupted by the
U. S. Army 1951-5 3, but he returned
to the same practice in 195 3. He and

Mary E. Matthews (1637 Waverly
Way, Baltimore (12), Md.) left

she interned and spent three years as
assistant resident in Pediatrics at the
University of Maryland Hospital and
affiliated hospitals in Baltimore. Mary
had worked in Public Health before
entering Medical School and when her
time of decision came, she solved the
problem by acting as Assistant Health
Officer of Baltimore County and
spending about % time in private
practice of Pediatrics. This combina-
tion has kept her so busy that she is

contemplating soon devoting her full
time to private practice. She still hopes
to come back to N. C. to practice.
