Dr. Bartholomew Honored.—
The Aven Citizenship award cup for 1956 was recently presented to Dr. Rudolph A. Bartholomew, Atlanta, "for his devoted service in Civil Defense and his interest and advice on medical care in times of disaster." In 1956, Dr. Bartholomew was requested to release for distribution a draft of his document on noncasualty medical care in times of disaster. Also, he developed a simple medical kit for prospective mothers to keep on hand and carry with them in the event of disaster evacuation.
