Neil C. Andrews, M.D.
32 Years at UC Davis School of Medicine – Surgery
A pleasant memory of the first graduation in 1972, was my privilege of placing the hoods on the new graduates.
Donald Langsley, M.D.
I left Davis (as Chair of Psychiatry) in 1977, spent five years as Chair of Psychiatry at the University of Cincinnati during which time I was also President of the American Psychiatric Association. Then for ten years, I was Executive Vice President of the American Board of Medical Specialties, the umbrella organization for all of the US specialty boards. In 1991 I stepped down from that responsibility and since then have been on the faculty of Northwestern University Medical School. Currently I am a member of the Illinois Medical Board and doing some other part time volunteer work.
Earl F. Wolfman, Jr., M.D.
36 Years at UC Davis School of Medicine Founding Chair Department of Surgery
I was granted Emeritus status on July 1, 1991 after 25 years at UC Davis. In 1987 I was elected as one of 24 delegates from California to the American Medical Association House of Delegates. In 1987 I was elected to the Board of Trustees of the California Medical Association representing 26 specialty societies in California. I resigned as a Delegate to the AMA in June, 1999 having served for 12 years. In February, 2000 I completed my 3rd allowable term on the CMA Board of Trustees. Currently I am writing the history of the founding of the UC Davis School of Medicine with particular emphasis on the development of each of the Surgical Departments within the School. These activities have provided me with many stimulating and satisfying experiences during my "emeritus" years. However, following the careers of our medical school graduates and housestaff have proven to be the most satisfying of all.
