School of Medicine Alumni

When family practitioner Edwin Matlin, 35C, 37M, entered medical school, he was one of the last to matriculate at Emory after just two years of medical school. Judging from the variety of activities on his CV, Dr. Matlin has stayed on a fast track.
  While at Emory and to pay for his tuition, he tutored in math and biology and coached lacrosse and wrestling. He entered private practice in 1940 and was visiting physician at several hospitals as well as chief of the menopausal clinic at Morrisania Hospital in the Bronx.
  During WWII, Dr. Matlin served in Africa and Sicily and was awarded the Purple Heart. After discharge in 1944, he practiced in Mt. Holly Springs, Penn., until 1960, and subsequently in Garden City, N.Y., from 1960 to 1993.
  But check out everything Dr. Matlin does in his spare time.
  He's a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians. He's exhibited his photographs and watercolors. He's bred and sold tropical fish. He's built and flown model airplanes. He was licensed to fly the big ones in 1945. He's remodeled and lived in a 90-year old mansion. And he's taught and lectured on hypnosis at Dickinson College. These are just the highlights.
  His wife, Beatrice Ruth, a pianist and piano teacher, offered her explanation. "Anyone could do what Eddie does if they didn't fritter away the hours between midnight and 6 am in sleep. He has the greatest store of useless knowledge I've ever come across." But seriously, she added, "No matter how much ego he displays to me or our intimates, he is quite humble in the practice of medicine. I've never known him to refuse a night call anytime, anywhere."
  Dr. Matlin got the last word, though, when he emailed us a patient anecdote from his years of practice with the comment that medical school, internship, and residency do not always prepare a doctor for every eventuality:

  I was on ER duty one evening when Mr. Thomas was brought in. Mr. Thomas was short of breath, and his florid complexion and marked tremor suggested the advanced stages of alcoholism. Given a glass of water, he promptly spilled half of it onto the floor. A physical examination revealed an enlarged liver, a large fluid-filled abdomen, and legs swollen to the knees. He was the classical, textbook picture of cirrhosis of the liver caused by years of drinking. His body had finally broken down.
  I gave him some Valium to quiet his anxiety and tremors and began to take a medical history. I asked him the usual questions about his present illness and finally, "How much do you drink?"
  "Enough," he replied.
  "How much is enough?" I asked.
  "Lots," was his evasive reply.
  "And how much is lots?" I persisted.
  "Well, a lot is a lot," he dodged. In an effort to get an accurate indication of his daily intake for the record, I asked, "Would you say three shots a day?"
  "Three shots is not a lot," he retorted.
  "Five shots a day?" I continued.
  "Doctor," he responded, "You are not a big drinker, are you?"
  Note to be outdone by the fencing, I said, "Would you say you drank a pint of hard liquor a day?"
  "Hell, Doc. I spill more than that a day!"
  I finally gave up. He was not going to reveal the strength of his addiction, but he was right. He really drank a lot. I accepted his estimate and wrote in the chart, "Patient states he drinks, 'a lot.'"

Professor emeritus Evangeline T. Papageorge, 29G, 37M, (honorary) was recognized by Governor Zell Miller during Georgia Women's History Month as one of the "Georgia Women Pioneers in Health Care."


Edwin Matlin, 37M

Against patient protest, John D. McKey, 38C, 41M, took down his shingle last year after 51 years and seven months of doctoring three generations of kids.
  More than 400 patients, former patients, and parents and grandparents of patients gathered on March 21 to observe "Dr. John McKey Day," at Central Christian Church in Orlando.
  On the eve of his final office visit day, well-wishers honored him at an open house. Orlando Sentinel columnist Greg Dawson was there and wrote about Dr. Key's old time style:
  "John McKey is an island of certainty in a sea of change, a refuge from the switchboard hell of managed care. He talks to every worried parent who calls his office. He has no computer and no fax machine. . . ."
  In retirement, Dr. McKey looks forward to more time on the golf course. His only regret is that he didn't make more money, "but that goes with the territory. Nobody works till age 80 unless he's motivated by something grander."

J. (Jesse) Lee Walker, 38C, 41M, is a 1998 recipient of the Emory Medal of Honor.
  Recognized for a lifetime of service, Dr. Walker is a legend in the hills of Frakes, Ky. Now retired, he pioneered rural medicine in mountain communities both in southeast Kentucky and in northeast Tennessee. He made house calls, working with limited resources and under difficult circumstances such as delivering babies at home by flashlight. He also confronted large land and coal producers who controlled the local economy but didn't necessarily support improved rural health care.
  Serving five rural clinics in the coal fields of Clearfield and Stinking Creek, Tenn., and Frakes, Ky., Dr. Walker developed a physician's assistant and nurse midwifery program to supplement his own services as a physician.
  To earn enough money to put his sons through college, Dr. Walker spent another chapter of his life working in the Midwest for a major corporation in industrial medicine, where he was responsible for occupational safety and worked to reduce noise levels in home appliances. He then returned to Appalachia to take up where he'd left off.
  Dr. Walker worked with the Office of Equal Opportunity during the War on Poverty and with other community-based organizations to improve health care for the poor. Honors and awards received by Dr. Walker include the 1985 National Rural Practitioner of the Year Award from the National Rural Health Association; the 1980 Leroy B. Stansell Memorial Award for outstanding service to the people of east Tennessee, presented by the East Tennessee Health Improvement Council; and the 1982 Outstanding Service Award for Leadership in Health Policy from the Tennessee Association of Primary Health Care Centers.


Dr. Smith goes to Washington, often. Martin H. Smith, 41Ox, 43C, 45M, who practiced pediatrics in Gainesville, Ga., for almost 50 years, has served not only the patients in his rural community but also children across the country.
  Now retired, he's on the move politically. He recently chaired a workshop in Atlanta with Emory Presidential Distinguished Professor of International Health Bill Foege and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter at the National Immunization Conference, sponsored by the CDC. He moderated talks about instituting early childhood immunization for every child by age 2.
  Dr. Smith is on the advisory board of "Every Child by Two," a volunteer effort put forth by Betty Bumpers, wife of Arkansas senator Dale Bumpers, and Rosalynn Carter after an outbreak of measles in 1987. Dr. Smith represents the American Academy of Pediatrics on this board.
  The American Academy of Pediatrics is dear to Dr. Smith. More than anything he's ever done, he says, he enjoyed serving as 1985-1986 president of the organization. That year, he worked successfully to get the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act passed by Congress to compensate the small minority of kids who have bad reactions to vaccines with concomitant disabling injury. Since completing his term as president of the academy, Dr. Smith has chaired the national Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines and the volunteer Immunization Education and Action Committee.
  In 1994, Dr. Smith was elected "Man of the Year" by his community, in recognition of his many contributions to health care in America. In 1995, he helped get a mobile van going in his Gainesville community to provide health care and immunizations to kids of families without transportation.
  Mrs. Smith wrote to us: "I have always tried to encourage him every step of the way." She believes the inscription on a glass sculpture entitled "The Mother and Infant" by Frable that was given to her husband best describes him: "Caring for America's Children."

William M. Madison Jr., 46C, 49M, has retired in Jacksonville, Fla., where he practiced cardiology from 1957 to 1992. He and his wife, Julia, spend their summers in Maine. He continues to work part time at the VA hospitals both there and in Jacksonville.

Martin Smith, 45M

Henry D. McIntosh, 51M, recently retired from his cardiology practice. But Heartbeat International, which he established in 1984, beats on. This not-for-profit organization sets up Pacemaker Banks throughout the world for patients who can't afford a pacemaker.
  Heartbeat International is a consortium of physicians, medical manufacturers, hospitals, community groups, and organizations working together to provide cardiac health care to people in need worldwide. There are now 35 Pacemaker Banks in 23 countries. All but two of these banks are sponsored by local Rotary Clubs.
  When Dr. McIntosh was chief of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, a former student and cardiologist told him about a young boy in his native homeland for whom he could do nothing because the child's family was too poor to afford a pacemaker. This same story subsequently was relayed to a local Rotary Club in Mexico, fortuitously attended by a representative of Intermedics, an American pacemaker manufacturer. The Intermedics representative contacted Dr. McIntosh to inform him that the company would be willing to donate pacemakers if he had a use for them. With the success of the first Pacemaker Bank, the medical community and Rotary International began to set up additional banks in locations throughout the world with generous donations from leading pacemaker manufacturers.
  Through the efforts of Dr. McIntosh, a former president of the American College of Cardiology, Heartbeat International has helped more than 4,000 people, improving their quality of life and forging lasting bonds of international friendship.

Spencer S. Brewer, Jr., 48C, 52M, has been a solo practitioner in internal medicine in his hometown of Atlanta since 1956 - July 1, to be exact, the day of the annual changing of the chief resident. He and his wife, Nancy Sorrells Brewer, have four children. He's also been clinical associate professor of medicine at Emory since July 1963. Dr. Brewer's goal is "to make professor before retiring from practice."

Bascam F. Anthony, 53C, 56M, of Potomac, Md., retired from academic pediatrics in 1990 and from the Food and Drug Administration in 1998. He's now a clinical consultant to the vaccine industry. He and his wife, Marietta, have four children ranging in age from 19 to 35.


Philip T. Schley, 56M, of Columbus, Ga., received the 1998 Wyeth-Ayerst Physician's Award for Community Service from the Medical Association of Georgia. For more than 30 years, he's worked in Columbus on behalf of young people and education, historic preservation, and other community concerns.
  An eagle scout himself, Dr. Schley has maintained a lifelong interest in his hometown Boy Scouts. He's taken young men on many a fabulous scouting trip, as far away as New Mexico.
  Both he and Margot, his wife of over 40 years, have been involved in historic preservation all of their married life. They've rescued several Columbus homes from the wrecking ball. In addition, the Schleys spent a week in rural Virginia as part of a missionary group from Trinity Episcopal Church, assisting a woman there in making improvements to her home.
  Dr. Schley is a fifth generation descendant of a founding family of Columbus, Ga. His family has produced many physicians.Dr. Schley is a fifth generation descendant of a founding family of Columbus, Ga. His family has produced many physicians.

Richard L. Hammonds, 60M, of Powder Springs, Ga., was re-elected chair of the WellStar Health System Board of Trustees for an additional two-year term. Headquartered in Marietta, Ga., WellStar includes Kennestone, Cobb, Windy Hill, Paulding Memorial, and Douglas General hospitals. Now retired from family practice, Dr. Hammonds served as an adviser to President Jimmy Carter during his term of office.

After 40 years of school and work, Lee T. Allen, 64M, retired from Decatur Urologic Clinic at age 65. The Allens live in Stone Mountain and have four children and six grandchildren. They're enjoying many projects, including travel, and are thankful for good health to enjoy their hobbies.
  First, the Allens enjoyed a long driving trip to New England. Other recent travel destinations included a book convention in Arizona.
  Dr. Allen's chief hobby is collecting books predating WWI on two unusual subjects: the Horatio Alger adventure series and story collections about the gasoline-powered engine. Noting that each book acquisition is carefully catalogued into a computer, Mrs. Allen wrote to us: "These fine books were read by many great men in America's history and hopefully will be preserved for future generations."
  Also in his spare time, Dr. Allen is working on car parts for the restoration of a 1932 Chevrolet. He and J. Donald Fite (ophthalmology) enjoy getting together at the foundry in Avondale to pursue the hobby of metal casting.
  Mrs. Allen also wrote: "But Lee's interests are not entirely personal because he wholeheartedly supported my lifelong desire to take a trip to Israel. It was truly the dream of a lifetime to see the Holy Land, beginning at Bethlehem and ending at the empty tomb in Jerusalem."
  Last, but certainly not least, are the grandchildren, four ranging in age from 2 to 7, with twins born in October. Mrs. Allen concluded: "How very blessed we are in these retirement years with all four children happily married, our good health, and our marriage growing. God is good."

Albert W. Pruitt, 64M, entered the General Theological Seminary in New York City in the fall of 1997. A pediatrician, he is former dean of the medical school and vice president of health affairs at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. Both Pruitts are still in intellectual overdrive. His wife, née Ellanor Hanson, 59Ox, 61C, 67G, 76G, says she is a bookworm at the Cokesbury Bookstore on the seminary campus.

After Charles O. Barker, 67C, 71M, completed his naval aerospace medicine residency in Pensacola, Fla., he was senior medical officer on the nuclear carrier USS Enterprise. Recently, he was promoted to captain in the US Navy Medical Corps. This fall he moves to the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, in Washington, D.C., as assistant director of aerospace medicine. He and his wife, née Conoly Lemon (68C), have three children, Emma (91C), Tom, and Lucy.

Mary Lund Mortensen, 78M, was elected vice president and medical director of Nationwide Health Plans, Inc., and Nationwide Health Systems, part of the Columbus, Ohio, based Nationwide Insurance Enterprise. Dr. Mortensen joined the company in 1995 as associate medical director. Also in 1997, she was appointed to the Columbus Board of Health and is now vice president.

Jane T. St. Clair, 79M, of Atlanta, has left the field of anesthesiology and embarked on a new career path in occupational medicine and rehabilitation. In her spare time, she's a physician consultant with MetLife Disability. She and her husband, James E. Sustman, have three sons, Edward, James, and George.


In 1995, William C. Warren IV, 79M, gave up an 11-year-old pediatric practice in a north Atlanta suburb to go south to the inner city. For three years, he ran a medical and dental clinic at the Techwood Baptist Center.
  This part of town formerly comprised the Techwood and Clark Howell Homes community. The oldest public housing project in the United States, the community was leveled prior to the Olympics. Centennial Place now stands in its place, and the area is still being rebuilt and repopulated.
  To meet the growing needs of the area, Dr. Warren and some of his colleagues recently established the Good Samaritan Health Center. He and the board of directors purchased a 10,000-square-foot downtown office building near Centennial Park. Dr. Warren now works for free as executive director of the center to help provide comprehensive health care to Atlanta's homeless, indigent, and working poor.
  In an article published in Emory Magazine (Autumn 1997), Dr. Warren explained his motivation: "The main reason I'm doing this is a sense, much like a minister, of having a calling from God to be involved in the care of the less fortunate," Dr. Warren says. Although his family ties afforded him the wherewithal to leave a thriving medical practice [he's great-great-grandson of Coca-Cola Company founder Asa G. Candler], his decision to radically change his life wasn't made in haste.
  As he told Emory Magazine, "It wasn't easy to leave my private practice. I liked what I was doing," he said. "I saw a lot of patients, worked a lot of weekends, worked a lot of nights. Some of that I don't miss. . . . Part of it has to do with the fact that I grew up in Atlanta. I saw what was going on around me. I trained at Grady. I saw what it was like. So it was not through ignorance on my part that I came down here. . . . I felt a calling."
  In treating patients, the center uses a holistic approach with emphasis on the patient's spiritual well-being. Good Samaritan offers health education classes in smoking cessation, parenting, exercise, and weight control. "We want to create a healthy environment and treat the total person - their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs," says Dr. Warren. "Atlanta's poorest residents haven't had a chance to learn how to change bad habits that harm their health." There's a counselor/chaplain on staff.
  The clinic building, renovations, and equipment were paid for by the Good Samaritan board of directors, Jesse Parker Williams Foundation, Ray and Mary Elizabeth Lee Foundation, and other concerned individuals. Dr. Warren and his board are now seeking operational and endowment money. They're calling on additional foundations, churches, professional organizations, and individuals to help raise funds. Patient fees are expected to cover 25% of overhead costs.
  The center charges working poor patients based on a reduced sliding scale and accepts nominal donations from others. "Of course, if a patient is totally destitute, there is no charge," Dr. Warren says. "Our experience showed us that the center's patients are not looking for a handout but rather affordable health care. We believe that by paying a price they can afford for our services, patients will be more responsible for their health. They will take their medication and come back for follow-up visits."
  The center has regular office hours from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. The initial staff consists of 60 volunteer physicians, dentists, assistants, counselors, and pharmacists. As the center grows, other paid, board-certified staff will be added.
  Dr. Warren previously was chair of pediatrics at Scottish Rite Children's Medical Center. About his present endeavor, he told Emory Magazine, "My reward is just doing something that was on my heart for a long time, fulfilling a dream of being involved in inner city medical missions."

By day, Charles D. Atkins, 90M, is director of behavioral sciences at Waterbury Hospital, Waterbury, Conn., and on the clinical faculty at Yale. By night, he's a chronicler of madness. His first novel, The Portrait, was published this past summer by St. Martin's press.
  It's billed as a psychological thriller with a manic-depressive protagonist. Actually, Dr. Atkins said it's pretty mainstream as far as novels go - it's just that the hero has a serious mental illness. This book is the first of a two-book contract with St. Martin's. Dr. Atkins' second novel will be published under a pseudonym. "Vultures at Twilight," he told us over the phone, "will be about older people at risk of being preyed upon." His third book, which will again come out under his real name, will be titled Soul-Less and will be something about childhood development going very, very wrong.
  Dr. Atkins also writes a bimonthly column in American Medical News and recently penned an essay for summer publication in JAMA. When asked if he might give up psychiatry and write full time, he said, "No, they go together." Sort of like night and day.

George A. Reynolds, 30C, 34M, of Bowling Green, Va., on Feb. 10, 1998. Dr. Reynolds began practicing medicine in Bowling Green in the mid-1930s and stayed for 45 years.
  The Reynolds came to Bowling Green after one of the town's doctors died. Dr. Reynolds called it "God's country." He had come to love the town when as a young intern at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond he frequently passed through it to visit his betrothed, Pearle Maupin, who lived in Fredericksburg. They were happily married for 61 years.
  According to Craig Belcher of The Caroline Progress, Dr. Reynolds "did things most modern-day doctors refer patients to clinics and hospitals for. He made house calls at all hours of the night. He developed and interpreted his own x-rays. He performed everything from simple operations like tonsillectomies to delivering babies. . . . [Dr. Reynolds] will be remembered as more than the town doctor. He served on the town council for 14 years, including a stint as the town's mayor."
  In addition to his wife, Dr. Reynolds is survived by a son, Herbert Y. Reynolds, MD, who is J. Lloyd Huck Professor of Medicine and chairman at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa.

Robert V. Brandon, 33C, 36M, of Jackson, Ga., of a heart attack at Westbury Medical Care home, on April 8, 1998.
  After medical school, Dr. Brandon was a general practitioner for 21 years in McDonough, Ga., until a car accident in 1958 changed everything.
  At age 46, Dr. Brandon was driving from McDonough to Atlanta when he lost control of the car and struck a tree. He spent months in Crawford Long Hospital recovering from a broken neck that had left him confined to a wheelchair with partial use of his hands. But five years after the accident, Dr. Brandon was back caring for patients.
  In 1965, he became one of the first resident physicians in a Georgia nursing home. He joined the staff of the former Westbury Nursing Home in Jenkinsburg and subsequently served four nursing homes in the area for 27 years. In 1992, he officially retired from practice but remained at the nursing home where he had cared for patients for so many years.
  Dr. Brandon was named Humanitarian of the Year by the Georgia Health Care Association for his contributions to the state's long-term health care program. He helped establish both the Georgia Medical Directors Association and the American Medical Directors Association. Dr. Brandon also was honored by Turner Broadcasting System as a Super Citizen of the Week.
  In 1993, he published his autobiography, Three Quarters, A Memoir, which detailed his early life growing up in St. Marys, Ga., and his medical work before and after the accident. The book took five years to write since he had to tap out one letter at a time on a computer using a pencil eraser stuck on the end of a narrow bar and fastened to his hand by a steel brace.
  Dr. Brandon is survived by two daughters, a brother, a sister, 10 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren.

Joyce L. Funke, 50M, of Roseville, Minn., of cancer at Fairview University Medical Center on April 8, 1998. She was 72.
  A physician and teacher at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Funke was in private practice from 1954 to 1958 in Glendive, Mont. She returned to Minnesota to serve as staff physician at the university, treating many of the physicians and top administrators at the medical school. Her specialty was noninvasive cardiology.
  Dr. Funke was determined to pursue her career in medicine despite initial rejection of her application to the University of Minnesota Medical School. After two years at Emory, she reapplied to Minnesota and was admitted to the junior class as one of four women.
  She retired from the university in 1986 after her first cancer diagnosis. In retirement, she explored her other passions, opera and classical music. Her first paying job, at age 11, was as second violinist with the Palm Beach Symphony in Florida. During medical school, she partly supported herself as lead singer with several dance bands in the Twin Cities.
  Dr. Funke's interest in music led her in 1980 to be a founder and early benefactor of the St. Paul Opera. She was always willing and ready to break into song, which she often did at birthday parties and other gatherings. Irma Wachtler, friend and another original backer of the opera, said: "When she was taken to the hospital the last time, she serenaded the ambulance crew." For her finale, Star Tribune staff writer Patrick Kennedy wrote: "On her last day alive, a nurse arranged a private bedside performance by the University of Minnesota Health Center Chamber Ensemble."
  Last June, Dr. Funke had been recognized by her medical peers with the Harold S. Diehl Award for outstanding professional contributions to the university, the medical school, and the community.

In March 1995, they wrote this tribute to their father: "You are so deserving of special recognition for the critical role you have played in meeting special needs of the Ft. Smith [Arkansas] community. Through your quiet spirit and generosity you were the unseen anchor in Mom's dream of providing one-on-one visitation to nursing home residents. Through years of financial, professional, and emotional nurturing, you partnered Mom's dream into a successful reality called Project Compassion, a mission you have continued to promote and grow even after Mom's death. . . . You have provided comfort and healing, have given peace, even to those at the end of life, always with an undying optimism and passion for professionalism."

  Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Dr. Jenko remained at Emory after medical school for his general surgery residency, followed by a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. He was a fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the Southeastern Surgical Congress. Dr. Jenko also had a special interest in medical informatics, holding memberships in the American Medical Informatics Association and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society.
  His wife, Mimi, sent us last August some historical notes on breast cancer that her husband had delivered in a speech a few years back. Dr. Jenko was addressing age-old controversies about the treatment of cancer and whether surgery adds length of life or comfort to justify the risk. An excerpt follows:
  "Lorenz Heister was one of the great German surgeons in the first half of the 18th century and favored the use of a guillotine machine to rapidly remove the breast. . . . He, himself, described the patient-surgeon relationship as follows: 'Many females could stand the operation with the greatest courage and without hardly moaning at all. Others, however, made such a clamor that they may dishearten even the most undaunted surgeon and hinder the operation. To perform the operation, the surgeon should therefore be steadfast and not allow himself to become disconcerted by the cries of the patient.'"
  Mrs. Jenko also wrote in her cover letter to us: "Paul had made the jump from clinical medicine to administrative and was preparing to study in an MBA for physicians program. After a busy fall agenda with vague complaints of fatigue and headaches, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme on New Year's eve. His courage while enduring surgery, radiation, and chemo has been a testimony to us all."
  In April, Dr. Jenko received the 11th Annual Watson Clinic Foundation Humanitarian Award. He had been a volunteer physician with the Good Samaritan Free Medical Clinic since 1993 and for almost that long had been a volunteer and coordinator of the enrichment hour for fifth-graders at a local academy. In addition to his wife, Mary Elizabeth, Dr. Jenko's family includes three sons, ages 14, 10, and 4.

Sandra M. Walden, 75C, 79M, of Baltimore, on April 26, 1996, of pulmonary disease. She's survived by her husband, Sidney O. Gottlieb, 79M, and three sons.

Mary McDermott, who worked in the medical school's office of student affairs from the late 1970s to the late 1980s, died of pancreatic cancer at Hospice Atlanta on June 1, 1998. Having worked closely with her, former dean of students Dorothy Brinsfield said that Mary's dry, Irish wit delighted those with whom she came in contact. Students of that era will remember her as the miracle worker who helped them if there were an error in their record or if they were applying for financial aid or a loan. She served as a liaison to the university registrar's office for many a student during difficult moments along their paths to becoming doctors.
