In recognition of nearly 50 years of exceptional service to his patients and to medicine, Dr. A. C. Yoder, of Goshen, Ind., was awarded the fifth annual general practitioner's gold medal and named "general practitioner of the year" by the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association at the Los Angeles clinical session. The winner of this award is selected each year from a list of three names submitted to the House of Delegates by the Board of Trustees, who in turn receive nominations from each of the state and territorial medical societies. Others who figured in this year's final voting were Dr. Everett Beam Lattimore, of Shelby, N. C., and Dr. Clayton Willison, of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.
Dr. Yoder was born in La Grange County, Ind., in 1867. Starting his career as a schoolteacher, he served as high school principal for six years before attending medical school.
