The Quadragesimal

Of the Class of 1916
By Claiborne T. Smith, M.D/-'

Your agent cannot give a complete
report on the thirty-one living mem-
bers of the class. He can say that he
has contacted them all by letter. He
was impressed by the attainments of
many, the modesty of all, and the
reticence of a few.

First we will pause to pay tribute
to those who have gone before us to
their reward, and again pledge our-
selves to hold high the torch we
caught from their failing hands.

The cover attempts to depict the
Odyssey of U.N.C. Med. '16. The

"Doc" has witnessed the virtual con-
quests of several diseases. He has seen
diseases undergo changes. He has lost
his hair, the spare tire of enthusiasm,
but his busted gallus shows a determi-
nation to challenge whatever is ahead.

Dr. James B. BuUitt will call the
roll — the noblest of that noble quintet
who taught us more than we have
learned since.

Furman Angel. "Tuck." "F" has
his own cHnic and hospital in Frank-
lin, North Carolina. He would not
give more details since as he says he
is fifteen years younger than any
members of the class and he can there-
fore afford to wait.

John Bryan Bonner. "John." "J. B."
is taking good care of Aurora and the
rest of that part of Beaufort County.

George M. Brooks, 18 N. Main
Street, Cape May Court House, New
Jersey. George was originally from
Sanbury, practiced at Elm City a good
many years and then in Rocky Mount
and finally in Cape May. George said
that he had had a coronary which has
limited his activities considerably.

Henry Lilly Cook, Jr. "H. L." was
in public health work and saw "gold
in them thar hills" (tonsils), nose and
throat for the rest of the time. No
letter from "H. L." but the grape-
vine is that he and the Jefferson
Standard are doing well.

Grady Carlyle Cook. FACS. Der-

"'Dr. Smith, an internist of Rocky
Mount, N. C, is class agent of the
class of 1916.


matology. Route No. 1, Morehead
City, North Carolina. From surgery
to dermatology means from coronary
to growing more arteries. He hopes to
do this down on the coast. He writes
he still dabs paint occasionally. How
fortunate with a coronary his hobby
is not water polo.

William Maurice Coppridge, 1200
Broad Street, Durham, North Caro-
lina, FACS. Chief of Staff of Watts
Hospital for thirty years. Practicing
urology. Very active in helping get
the four year medical school at Chapel
Hill. Past President of the State
Medical Society and during his term
brought about many advanced and
worthwhile changes. A son in post-
graduate urological training at the
University of Michigan.

Cora Z. Corpening, M.D. Virginia
Beach, Virginia. Proved to a class of
about 50 doubting and resentful men
that a woman could graduate in medi-
cine at U.N.C. and later make a suc-
cess in the dual career of a home
maker, and physician. She married
Wade Kornegay — Class of '15 — one
of those debating fellows against
Hopkins, University of Virginia or
some such "furrin" university. They
do not have a son, but a daughter
who is not a physician but married
to Dr. Robert F. Kibler, Instructor
at the University of Pittsburg.

James G. Dickson, University of
Arkansas Medical School, Little Rock,
Arkansas, Department of Pathology.
"Little Dick" stayed in the Navy
several years before he took up teach-
ing at Arkansas. Jim's letter was
extremely short and we wish he could
have given us more information.

Carl E. Ervin, 240 N. Third Street,
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. FACP.
"C. E." "Siggs." Practiced internal
medicine in the Geisinger Memorial
Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania for
many years before going to Harris-
burg. "Siggs" has been too busy to
write anything about himself.

James Hawfield, 1150 Connecticut
Avenue, N.W., Washington, D. C.
FACS. Permanent President of Class
of 1916. Jim writes that he has
turned over most of his surgery to his
nephew, but has a grandson whom he
hopes will study medicine. He writes
that he still does enough surgery to
pay the losses on his farm near Fred-
ericksburg, Virginia.

Roy W. Hayworth, Asheboro,
North Carolina. Hayworth fought
World War I in the Navy on Wake,
or was it Guam? He didn't go back
to the island in World War IL No
letter from him.

Vonnie M. Hicks. FACS. Opthal-
mologist in Raleigh, 127 West Har-
gett Street. Vonnie is sitting pretty
with a ne plus ultra equipped office
and a son Vonnie M., Jr. associated
with him in Opthalmology. No letter.

Frederick C. Hubbard, FACS.
North Wilkesboro, North Carolina.
Past President of the State Medical
Society. Has worked hard for the
foundation of four year medical
school. No letter.

James C. Joyner, 720 Park Avenue,
New York 28, New York. After his
service in the Navy during World
War I, Jim went into surgery with
special training in Vienna and Paris.
He then located in New York City
specializing in surgery and is associated
with various hospitals in and around
the city.

Daniel Lamont Knowles, 13 5 S.
Main Street, Rocky Mount, North
Carolina. After his service in the
Navy in World War I, "Mont" settled
in Rocky Mount doing general prac-
tice. His work was very heavy. For
the last few years, Mont has had a
wee elevation of blood pressure. Just
enough to excuse him from hard work
and to justify hunting and fishing.

Benjamin Jones Lawrence, 127 West
Hargett Street, Raleigh, North Caro-
lina. Navy in World War L Surgery
in Raleigh. Senior Surgeon at Rex.


Medical Director of the North Caro-
Hna Industrial Commission. North
Carolina State Board of Health. Past
President of the Raleigh Academy of
Medicine. Has a son, B. J., Jr. also

Charles Preston Mangum, 1822
Monument Avenue, Richmond, Vir-
ginia. No communication. Charlie
practiced Pediatrics in Kinston, North
Carolina for a good many years then
moved to Richmond with the Stuart
Circle Hospital where he continues in
the practice of pediatrics.

Brodie M. McDade, Box 269, Burl-
ington, North Carolina. McDade
never had much to say but was a
Scotchman who did a lot of thinking.
He apparently has not changed from
his innate reticence. No letter.

Burrus Boyd McGuire, Elizabeth
City, North Carolina. We all remem-
ber him as being very introspective
and dedicated to his work. Apparently
he still is. No answer to letter.

Roy Colonel Mitchell. FACP. 92 3
Spring Street, Mount Airy, North
Carolina. Roy doesn't write much;
to your class agent — nothing.

Julian A. Moore. FACS. Like so
many who have been in personal com-
bat with the tubercle bacillus, Julian
has carried on the war against the bug
in others with both medical and
surgical weapons.

He has been consultant and attend-
ing surgeon to the Western North
Carolina Sanatorium, consultant sur-
geon to the U. S. Veteran's Hospital
at Oteen. While Uncle Sam donated
millions, it required Julian to give
the hospital the spark for high grade
work. He is still consultant. He is
still carrying on his heavy practice in
Asheville. In appreciation of his work
at the Western North Carolina Sana-
torium a wing has been named the
Moore Wing.

He has contributed several articles
to surgical literature mostly in the
field of thoracic surgery.

Eugene P. Pendergrass. FACP.
University of Pennsylvania Hospital,
Philadelphia. "Gene" or "Pendy" has
scaled higher the Olympus of Medi-
cine than anyone in the class. Very
likely, higher up than any other man
from U.N.C. Medical School in its
history. Professor of Radiology at
the University of Pennsylvania. Chair-
man of the Committee on Radiology
of the National Research Council.
President of the American College of
Radiology. Honorary membership in

radiology. Recipient of the Gold
Medal Award from the Radiological
Society. Author of over 180 medical
papers and of an outstanding book.

Ralph J. Plyler, Salisbury, North
Carolina. Plyler also failed to answer
your agents newsy and engaging let-

Daniel C. Reyner, 770 5 Oak Grove,
Margate, New Jersey. The late Hervey
Wadsworth— U.N.C. Med. '16— said
that his friend Dan would never come
back to Raleigh. So far as your agent
knows Harvey was right. But wc
would have enjoyed a bubbling,
effervescent letter from Dan. It is
safe to say that he still indulges in
flashy neckties.

James P. Rousseau. FACP. 1014
West Fifth Street, Winston-Salem,
North Carolina. Past President of the
State Medical Society. Head of the
Department of X-ray at Baptist Hos-
pital in Winston-Salem. Professor of
Roentgenology at B o w m a n-G ray
School of Medicirfe.

Samuel Floyd Scott. Scott Clinic,
Route No. 2, BurHngton, North
Carolina. Doctor of the year in his
two counties. Still running the long
distances but now with a station
wagon. He has his office right out
in the country — no short distance
calls. He writes, "My children are to


tell me when my mentality has fallen
below the level to do satisfactory
work." Your agent has met his son
and partner, Peter. He is convinced
that Peter has too much sense to tell
Scotty he is slipping even if he lived
to be a 110!

He also writes: "Life has been very
pleasant dealing with the grateful and
good people and, watching progress
unfold — transportation, good roads,
communication, and better farming,
and better living." His leaving St.
Timothy's Hospital in Philadelphia
after graduating from the University
of Pennsylvania and going to the
rural section of North Carolina sug-
gests a Telemachus."

"Who' by slow prudence made

A rugged people, and thro' soft

Subdued them to the useful and

the good."

But there is nothing soft about
Scotty in disciplining his patients;
such as making his younger brother.
Senator Scott walk from his home to
the Senate Building in Washington.

Claiborne T. Smith. FACP. 404
Falls Road, Rocky Mount, North
Carolina. "Clip" "C. T." Practicing
internal medicine in Park View Hos-
pital. Recipient of the Distinguished
Service Award from the Medical
School at Chapel Hill. Written on
this in invisible ink: "He paid his
dues. Verbinn Sapienti Sat (est) ." A
son, Claiborne Junior in psychiatry.

Hugh P. Smith, FACP. ABIM.
206 East North Street, Greenville,
South Carolina. The most brilliant
mind in the class and Dr. James Bullitt
may say of all the classes. Lt. Jr.
Grade U.S.N.R.F. World War I. Lt.
Col. Medical Corps A.U.S., World
War IL Chief of Medical Service in
several Army Hospitals from Septem-

ber 1942 to June 1945. Author and
co-author of almost a dozen medical

influence in the community, his high
ideals and his thorough knowledge of
the practice of medicine has affected
us all. His contributions to the com-
munity and to the advancement of
medicine could never be adequately
evaluated." Hugh has two sons in
medicine. Hugh, Jr., Internal Medi-
cine practicing in California and
Lawton, resident in Ophthalmology at
Johns Hopkins.

Leslie Ogburn Stone, Rocky Mount,*
North Carolina. FACS. Retired Rear

forty years in the Navy Leslie has
decided to go to work and has an
office for Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat
on Rose Street in Rocky Mount.

James H. Wheeler. Doing general
practice in Henderson, North Caro-
lina. AffiUated with the Maria Par-
ham Hospital. No communication.
And so "Tho' much is taken, much
abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength

which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that

which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic

Made weak by time and fate, but

strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and
not to yield."

And now a word from our sponsor,
the University of North CaroHna
Medical Foundation. "The money you I
donate will help hold the good men
in medicine and hslp pay the expenses
of research."

Ave atque vale.
