R. Morton Bolman II, MD - 1915-1966
Dr. Bolman fostered scientific investigation in surgery during his tenure as Chairman of the Department of Surgery at St. Joseph Hospital. Under Dr. Bolman's leadership St. Joseph Hospital opened an animal experimentation laboratory and a surgical amphitheater and it hosted countless visiting surgeons who demonstrated the latest surgical techniques.
In 1959, at a meeting of the Indiana and Kentucky Chapters of the American College of Surgeons, along with the Kentucky Surgical Society, Dr. Bolman presented a memorable Presidential Address entitled THE ULTIMATE SURGEON. Dr. Bolman described eloquently those qualities which best characterize surgeons. Dr. Bolman died at the age of 51. He lived a life of fullness and intensity. He was a man consumed by a yearning to live surgery. He loved medicine.
