SO IT must be said for Dr. Frederick Ralph Guilford who died suddenly June 12, 1971, from a myocardial infarction. To those who knew him personally, he was a gifted and tireless surgeon, a teacher dedicated to the truth, and a scholar committed to excellence in scientific writings and to accuracy in reporting of clinical experiences.

His life was a series of highest personal accomplishments, having its beginning in 1910 in Monroe City, Mo, where he was born. He graduated with honors from Ohio State University Medical School in 1940 where he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. After an internship he had a distinguished career as a flight surgeon in the military service from 1941 to 1945. For his services as commanding officer of the 802nd Air Evacuation Squadron and Air Evacuation Officer for the Mediterranean Theatre he received the order of the British Empire and the Legion of Merit (US).
