United States Surgeon General. He attended the University of Virginia, and earned his medical degree from the University of Maryland. As Assistant Surgeon with the Marine Hospital Service Regular Corps, which was later known as the Public Health Service, he received honors for his work to eradicate the bubonic plague in San Francisco in 1905, and in the eradication of yellow fever in New Orleans in 1907. He was promoted to Surgeon on May 17, 1909.
