After discharge from service in the spring of 1946 I made two decisions which pointed my way to Emory.  First, I applied to Graduate School and next I married a girl from Atlanta. While stationed in Atlanta at Lawson General Hospital as student and later as instructor in Surgical Technology, I visited Emory and liked what I found.

Of my time at Emory, I am most proud of pioneering Medical Genetics, a biomedical discipline that emphasizes scientific research, education and service. The paradigm for this program was to understand the fundamental mechanisms of heritable disorders with the goal of using this information to predict a health problem, intervene, and prevent irreversible damage.
