CHARLES RICHARD DREW, M. D.
Dr. Drew was born in Washington, D. C. on June 3, 1904. He attended public schools in Washington,
D. C, graduating from Dunbar High School in 1922. He received his A. B. degree from Amherst
College in 1926. While at Amherst, his prowess in track and football won him the Annual Mossman
Trophy as the athlete who brought the highest honor to his school. Dr. Drew received his M. D. degree
from McGill University School of Medicine in 1933, and spent the following two years as intern, then
resident in Montreal General Hospital. In 1935, Dr. Drew went to Howard University as an instructor
in pathology, advancing guickly to assistant professor of surgery. Because of the great promise he
showed, he received a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1938 for further study at Columbia University Medical
While at Columbia, Dr. Drew completed a timely dissertation, "Blood Bank," for the doctor of science
degree, a work that was so impressive that he was chosen as medical director of the Blood-for-Britain
project in the fall of 1940. It was during this period of his life that Dr. Drew made his reputation as
a pioneer in the preservation of blood plasma. He successfully directed the shipment of large supplies
of plasma to England for the use of British soldiers on Battlefields in France. In the spring of 1941,
Dr. Drew served as medical director of the first American Red Cross Blood Bank in this country, a
pilot program in New York City that became the model for blood banks in the national American Red
Cross blood collection program during World War II. In 1944, Dr. Drew received the Spingarn Medal
of the NAACP for his work in both British and American blood plasma projects.
In April 1941, Dr. Drew returned to Howard University as professor and head of the Department
of Surgery. Here he achieved further distinction, particularly in the training of qualified black surgeons
for the teaching and practice of surgery. During his tenure as head of the Department of Surgery from
1941 to 1950, he guided the department to new heights and left a legacy and a traditional which is
very much alive today.
On April 1, 1950, Dr. Drew died in the emergency room of Alamance General Hospital in Burl-
ington, N. C.from severe injuries received in an auto accident. He had been promptly taken to the
hospital where three local doctors worked for several hours to save his life. All efforts were in vain.
Howard University President Mordecai Johnson, speaking at Dr. Drew's funeral, said of him: "Here
we have what rarely happens in history — a life which crowds into a handful of years significance so
great that men will never be able to forget it."
The Washington Post, in an editorial that was entered into the Congressional Record by Hubert Hum-
phrey, also commented on Dr. Drew upon his death, saying: "He will be missed ... not alone by his race
but by his whole profession and by men everywhere who value scientific devotion and integrity."

OMEGA PSI PHI LEADER:
Almighty God, creator of this earth and of the many peoples on it, we gather here today to remember
and pay tribute to one of your children, our brother, Dr. Charles Richard Drew. We thank you for the
gift of life, and especially for his life, which ended after an accident at this site thirty-six years ago,
on April 1, 1950.
We will always remember those who have gone before us, especially those who have lived and died
in Your service, keeping faith in all humankind and working for the unity of all people.
O God, we praise You and thank You for the fire that ignites our souls with the desire for knowledge
and wisdom. All knowledge helps us lead richer lives, and through every difficult endeavor, we come
to know you better. We especially thank You for the fire that ignited Charles Drew's soul, and for the
knowledge about blood and healing he diligently pursued and found, thereby saving the lives of many
people and making them whole again.
In gathering here today, we honor all human efforts to attain knowledge that it may be used to make
people's lives better. In honoring Charles Drew, we inevitably honor the spirit of integrity, hard work,
selflessness, and zealous purposefulness, for these were his qualities.
O God, we thank You for the generousity and good faith that have made our efforts here today possi-
ble. We thank You for the land that has been donated for our purpose and for the stone that we pray
will stand here always as a memorial to Charles Drew. We thank You for the gifts from the hearts and
hands of many people, in this county and beyond, that we might stand here together and pay this tribute
to a great American.
We ask You to bless this earth, and this stone marker, that they may be preserved for many years
to come, in the same spirit that they were given and dedicated. We pray that this site, once a place
of death, may become a place of life and healing, through Your grace.
O God, the final healer of all wounds, whether spiritual or physical, we pray that You heal us and
make us whole, as You taught Charles Drew to do as a surgeon and doctor. Our knowledge is imperfect:
our hearts and minds require Your touch, that we may see truly, and love each other, living together
as one people without strife and misunderstanding.
WE dedicate ourselves and our lives to Your service, O God. And we promise that in our lifetimes
we will be faithful to the memory of your servant, Charles Richard Drew.

The Drew Memorial Marker Steering Committee invited the family and friends of Dr. Drew and interested participants to
share their memories of him and their reactions to the memorial. Below are some of their responses:
"I have such fond memories of my brother. Our father died when I was very young — just thirteen — and Charlie became
my father figure — my severest critic and my greatest booster . . . (I-fe) took me to my first horse race, The Preakness at Pimlico
and to my first Omega Psi Phi ball ir Washington (D. C.) He was so handsome and I was so proud to be his 'date'.
"I never thought of Charlie as a great scientist, surgeon, or teacher . . . even thought I knew he was all of those things .
. . He was my friend, my confidant, my teacher, my mentor. He was simply my big brother and I loved him. I shall miss him
Eva Drew Pennington, sister of Dr. Drew
"Drew attended an Amherst College very different from today's. Many people then were not ready for black stars in a white
world, and he met with racial slurs both on and off the field. He remained in control, however, since he had already decided
that any people would make more progress by 'doing and showing' than 'violent demonstration . . .'
"Drew was very popular with his classmates and had
a natural dignity combined with good humor."
Kent W. Faerber
Secretary for Alumni Relations and Development
Amherst College, Mass.
". . . when Drew graduated in 1933, he was regard-
ed at McGill as a man of great promise. An early tragic
death cut short his career at its height, but in spite of
that his achievements exceeded even the promise he
showed as a medical student.
"McGill University is proud to number amongst its
graduates Charles Richard Drew and I personally am
proud to have a small share in the tribute being paid
to him by the Dr. Drew Memorial Marker Committee
of Alamance County, North Carolina."
Edward H. Bensley, M. D.
Emeritus Professor of Medicine, and former Vice Dean
of the Medical Faculty, McGill University, Canada
"Permit me to congratulate you for establishing a per-
manent memorial to Dr. Charles Richard Drew. We
were colleagues at Howard University from 1947 . . .
until his untimely death in 1950 ... I admired him as
one of the great scientists of the time, and as one of the
most distinguished professors at the University . . . This
country can, even now, boast of many distinguished
surgeons who were his students. His colleagues at
Howard knew of his sterling gualities as a teacher, and
we all admired him for his complete devotion to his
responsibilities in this area."
John Hope Franklin, Ph. D., historian
". . . we look at him as a trail blazer and a pioneer
in the field of education . . . One cannot measure the
contributions that he made in the educational effort at
the Howard University College of Medicine. He caus-
ed us to dare to think big and raise our sights ... to
a level of excellence that we didn't dream we could
achieve. We were still deeply embroiled in the pro-
blems of segregation in medicine in the United States
and opportunities were opening up very slowly.
"Your decision to pay this tribute to a truly great
American is a good one and will cause your communi-
ty to be admired for its good sense and generousity as
long as men remember him. A new generation has
grown up and does not realize that many of the things
that we take for granted were not available a few years
ago. This generation needs to be reminded of Charles
Drew for I think his life is an inspirational story of how
great achievements can be accomplished although
great obstacles may appear and reappear."
Charles D. Watts, M. D., Durham, N. C.
Surgeon and former student of Dr. Drew
"On behalf of the Department of Surgery, I express
our congratulations to you for honoring this outstanding
LaSalle D. Leffall, Jr., Professor and Chairman
of the Department of Surgery,
Howard University Medical School
"Thank you for your recent letter in reference to the
establishment of a memorial marker as a tribute to my
father. The family of Dr. Drew is indeed pleased that
the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, local physicians, other
health officials and representatives of community
organizations have chosen to honor Dr. Drew in this
Charlene Drew Jarvis, daughter of Dr. Drew and
Washington, D.C. Council member
"Please find attached my donation to this most wor-
thwhile project . . . allow me to sincerely congratulate
. . . the committee for the fine job . . . (it) is doing for
the citizens of Alamance County. '
J. B. Allen, Jr., Chief District Court Judge,
"I am enclosing a small contribution to assist the ef-
forts to honor Dr. Charlie Drew. His works live on every
day through the extensive blood donor programs in
America. I think it is only fitting that we in Alamance
County pay tribute to this great American."
James E. Long, N.C. Commissioner of Insurance,
"Thousands of times over every day m this nation,
Charles Drew's contribution to health care is used to
give the needed blood of life to surgery patients, to ac-
cident victims, to those with special health needs which
reguire new blood.
"Many use that development right here in our own
county each day without ever realizing the link of Dr.
Drew and this county. It was a tragic link, as his death
occurred as a result of that traffic accident on April 1 ,
1950. But it is a link to be remembered."

^APRIL 1, 1950'
Walter R. Johnson, MD
St. Louis, Missouri
It was on a beautiful, starry, moonlit night on March 31 , 1950, short-
ly after 12 midnight, that four congenial, happy physicians, Charles
R. Drew, Samuel L. Bullock, Fiichard Ford, and myself, Walter R.
Johnson, left Washington, DC, by car for Tuskegee, Alabama, to serve
at the annual free medical clinic held at the John A. Andrews Hospital.
These clinics served as a diagnostic and treatment center for the
black, rural inhabitants of Florida. Alabama, Mississippi, Louisana,
and Georgia. Many physicians came from the urban medical centers
of Washington, DC; Mt. Bayou, Mississippi; Chicago; St. Louis; and
New Orleans, Many professors and clinicians came from Emory
University, the University of Alabama, St. Louis University,
Washington University, and other major clinics of the South to assist
in the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the great volume of
material that found its way to the John A, Andrews Hospital clinic.
It was lor this reason that Dr. Drew requested these colleagues to
participate with him in such a humane endeavor.
It seemed logical to us to leave Washington, DC, on Friday night
and drive to Atlanta, relax for a short period, and then proceed to
Tuskegee, Alabama. The clinics were to begin on Monday, April 3,
and continue through Saturday, April 8. In Dr. Bullock's Buick Road
Master automobile we drove uneventfully through the Virginia coun-
tryside discussing a few personal and medical problems and anec-
dotes. As we neared the Virginia-North Carolina state line at about
5;30a.m., we noticed a roadside doughnut shop. We decided to stop
for doughnuts and coffee and take an opportunity to stretch. The break
was refreshing and in a short while we were on our way. It was here
that Dr. Drew sealed his fate, because about 90 minutes later, near
Burlington, North Carolina, our car met with a terrible accident while
he was driving. The cause of the accident was unknown, as it is even
When we left the doughnut shop. Dr. Drew was driving. Dr. Bullock
was sitting in the front seat on the passenger side, I was in the back
seat behind Dr. Bullock, and Dr. Ford was in the back seat behind
Dr. Drew. The traffic was not heavy and Dr. Drew had no trouble
getting back onto the highway. Continuing with our anecdotes and
jokes, we soon became sleepy. I had no conscious awareness of
anything that occurred beyond this point, until I awoke, sitting in
the same position, with our car lacing south, the direction we had
been driving, about thirty yards into a cornfield on the left side of
the highway. The car was right side up and only the left doors were
open. I was terribly confused and had no idea what had happened
and I appeared to be alone in the car. Dr. Ford and Dr. Drew were
missing. Dr. Bullock was wedged under the dashboard of the front
seat. When I got out to help Dr. Bullock become unwedged, he ask-
ed me what had happened, a question I was unable to answer, and
where Dr. Drew was, another question I could not answer. We then
began to inspect the surroundings. Dr. Bullock examined the front
end of the car and I, the rear end. We found Dr. Drew lying on his
back perpendicular to the front left wheel. He was alive, his breathing
was irregular, and his face was pale and contorted as if in pain. Dr.
Bullock examined the upper extremities while I examined the lower.
There was an avulsion of the quadriceps muscle of the left leg, but
there was no frank hemorrhage, not even from the avulsed injury.
There was no bleeding from the mouth, nose, or ears. He was ob-
viously in shock. Turning my attention from Dr. Drew and further
exploring the surroundings, I saw Dr. Ford, quietly sitting on the
ground about ten yards to the right, holding his arm. I went to him
to inquire of his condition. He was dazed and complained of pain
in his left arm. Examination of his left arm revealed a fracture of the
left humerus. I suggested that he put his left hand between the but-
tons of his shirt to act as a sling.
By this time, motorists driving along the Highway and observing
our plight in the cornfield stopped to give whatever assistance they
could. Within a short time the highway patrol came. A motorists had
gone to the city to summon an ambulance, which appeared in about
15 minutes. While waiting, I inspected the highway to determine what
had happened. On the roadway I observed tire marks that appeared
to go off the right shoulder, then bend sharply to the left, leaving
no tire marks or evidence of contact with the ground until about ten
yards in a field to the left of the highway. Again, there was a marked
disruption of the ground about ten yards further into the field. We
were told by a boy that our car had turned over about three times.
Dr. Ford was taken to the hospital by a motorist. The ambulance
stopped on the shoulder of the highway and the stretchers were
brought onto the field where Dr. Drew was lying. He was lifted onto
the stretcher and taken to the ambulance. I was allowed to accom-
pany him to the hospital. Dr. Bullock remained with the car to col-
lect our baggage and was brought to the hospi'al by a patrolman.
At the hospital, I assisted the ambulance attendants in taking Dr.
Drew into the emergency room of the Alamance General Hospital
of Burlington, North Carolina. Dr. Drew was still alive, periodically
gasping. In the emergency room, the attendants attempted to deter-
mine the extent of the injuries, checking the pulse and respiration.
I was questioned as to what had happened and I replied, "We had
an accident on the highway." While the attendants proceeded with
their routine examination, a tall, ruddy, brown-haired man in a long
white coat came in the emergency room and observed the patient.
He asked in astonishment, "Is that Dr. Drew?" I answered, "Yes, we
had an accident on the highway." In a commanding voice he ordered
emergency measures. At his request, fluids were assembled and at-
tempts were made to place a tourniquet around the right arm. I was
escorted from the emergency room to the waiting room, where I waited
until Dr. Bullock entered in great apprehension. He asked, "Is Dr.
Drew still alive?" I said "I think so; they are working on him now."
Dr. Bullock was then given an emergency examination that includ-
ed x-ray examination of his back. In the meantime. Dr. Ford had been
returned from the x-ray department, where he had been told that he
had a fracture of the left humerus. An effort was made to console
Dr. Ford while waiting for Dr. Bullock to return from the x-ray depart-
ment. His x-ray diagnosis was negative for the fracture of the lum-
bar, spine, and pelvis.
A very sad communion prevailed while we awaited news of Dr.
Drew's condition. After approximately two hours of what seemed an
endless wait, a physician came and reported to us that Dr. Drew had
died. He said, "We tried. We did the best we could. We started fluids
but our efforts were unrewarded." We were given Dr. Drew's per-
sonal effects, and, grief-stricken, left the hospital in a taxicab for the
local railroad station to embark on our trip back to Washington, DC.
The treatment at the hospital, routine for accidental injuries in that
region and specific for that period of time, suggests that a conscien-
tious effort was made to revive Dr. Drew. It may be argued that given
the same circumstances and the same period of time in other major
medical centers, other results might have been obtained. But this
would be pure speculation. Thus, we must assume that during the
two or three hours that Dr. Drew lived, routine emergency treatment
specific for that locality was administered and in spite of it, he failed
to survive. There was no evidence to suggest that Dr. Drew received
less than acceptable emergency treatment. It is hoped that this ex-
planation of the management of Dr. Drew's injuries in the Alamance
County General Hospital of Burlington, North Carolina, in the mid-
morning of April 1 , 1950, will put to rest the myths, innuendos, and
rumors that suggest otherwise.
As the least injured of the group, the one who accompanied Dr.
Drew from the scene of the accident to the hospital in the ambulance,
and the one who last saw him alive, I offer the above documentary
of the event, as I perceived it, to be a truthful, sincere, and factual
account. It is a picture that has remained with me for over 30 years,
one that I have tried to relate on many occasions, in many places,
and when I have been questioned about the accident.
The loss of Dr. Drew, whose scientific achievements were well
known and inspirational to all in the social, scholastic, athletic, and
medical worlds, was the tragedy of reality that occurs so frequently
in history. The loss was particularly acute for me professionally, for
I was the last to be recruited by Dr. Drew, having been picked from
the infantile paralysis unit of the John A. Andrews Hospital in 1949
to become senior resident of the orthop)edic service at Freedmen's
Hospital and a member of his select circle of trainees.
