Class of '09 Treated to Bull & Oyster Roast
The atrium in Medical School Teaching Facility was again the site for the annual bull and oyster roast for the third year medical class. Despite busy schedules with rotations and cold and snowy weather, nearly two-thirds of the class of ’09 turned out for the event. Students and several faculty were treated to an array of fine foods in addition to the traditional stations of carved roast beef and oysters. The event was held on Wednesday, December 5.
Sophomores Enjoy Social at Waterfront Hotel
Two-thirds of the second-year class enjoyed a reception at the historic Waterfront Hotel in Fells Point on January 10. The annual event is always scheduled during the first two weeks of the new year shortly after students return from the holiday break. Students were treated to drinks and a host of hors d’oeuvres during the three-hour party, sponsored by the MAA. The building housing the hotel was constructed in 1771 as a private residence and is the second oldest brick building in the city of Baltimore. It became a tavern in 1861 and was converted into a restaurant in 1955.
Randall, ’57, Haskins
Reflect on Historic
Fifty years ago, Maryland hired its first African-American resident in obstetrics and gynecology. The appointment of Louis L. Randall, ’57, was made by chairman Arthur L. Haskins, MD. The two physicians reflected on their experiences February 12, invited back to campus by Maryland’s Student National Medical Association. Randall, now retired, praised Haskins for his bold leadership, while Haskins—now 91 years old—simply insisted that Randall’s qualifications made him a logical choice. The mini-reunion was facilitated by Theodore C. Patterson, ’62, who discovered that Haskins had moved back to Baltimore after retirement in the 1990s. Haskins, who became chairman of the department in 1955, departed to the Medical College of Georgia in 1980. Also attending the event was Elijah Saunders, ’60, Maryland’s first African-American resident in internal medicine.
