The subject of this biography was bred and born in Alabama. Soon after his graduation from the Medical Department of New York University, in 1898, he selected ophthalmology and otolaryngology as his fields of practice. In the course of fifty years he has risen, among other positions of importance, to the presidency of the Southern Medical Association, of the American Medical Association and of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Oto-Laryngology.
No man in this country has fought harder to see that the ethics of the profession are maintained and to prevent the socialization of medicine.

The story of the life and times of a great leader will be found interesting and informative.
