Loyola University 
School Of Dentistry 

Maywood, Illinois 




Loyola University School of Dentistry is very proud of its history as 
the oldest of the four existing dental schools in Illinois. The school has 
an outstanding record in academic growth, having graduated ap- 
proximately 10,000 dentists, many of whom are in responsible positions 
throughout our nation and the world. Founded on February 20, 1883, as 
the Chicago Dental Infirmary, the school originally followed a policy of 
accepting only those individuals who already had an M.D. degree and 
wished to become dentists. However, a year later this policy was 
changed. Also, the school was renamed the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery at this time. The first location was on Adams Street in what is 
now the Chicago "Loop." As the student body increased, the school was 
forced to move to larger rented quarters at various locations in the Loop. 
In the summer of 1893, the school was moved to its own building at 
Wood and Harrison Streets, where it remained until the summer of 1969 
when it moved to its present location in Maywood. 



In 1899 the Dental School became affiliated with Lake Forest Univer- 
sity as its dental department. This continued until 1903, when a new af- 
filiation was made with Valparaiso University, Indiana, which stayed in 
effect until 1920. The three greats of dental education, Dr. Truman W. 
Brpphy, Dean Emeritus; Dr. William H. G. Logan, Dean of Students; 
and Dr. C. N. Johnson, Dean of the Faculty, assumed ownership and 
management of the school in September of 1920. Late in 1923, the 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery was incorporated as part of Loyola 
University under the present name, and the school since has been a 
college of that growing University. Under the leadership of Drs. Brophy, 
Logan and Johnson, a Class A rating was attained for the Dental School 
from the Dental Education Council of America and they established in 
1935 the Foundation for Dental Research, which today is the Brophy- 
Johnson-Logan Research Fund.

OFFICE OF THE DEAN 



MESSAGE TO THE GRADUATING SENIORS: 



I am proud of the experiences we shared together at our School of 
Dentistry. I regret my administrative role limited the frequency 
of personal contacts, but I will always cherish memories of our 
working together to develop and strengthen the high professional 
standards our school reflects . 

Let me remind you -- that graduation will only be the beginning of 
a period of professional growth through continued learning 
opportunities. The professional comradeship engendered at Loyola 
University of Chicago will ensure your frequent return to the 
Campus at the School of Dentistry. 

I am proud to call you my colleague and have you represent the 
school in the area of practice participation. You are a typical 
example of the high calibre professional we graduate. 

May you share your future with good health and an abundance of 
happiness . 



Sincerely,

Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity 






Alpha Omega is an international dental 
fraternity which provides an atmosphere for sharing 
common interests and developing life-long 
friendships. Because of its size, distribution, history, 
and caliber of members, AO can exert considerable 
influence in education, the profession, and many 
communities. AO is also actively concerned with 
community involvement by sponsoring both dental 
and general activities on the local and international 
levels. At Loyola many students reaped the benefits 
of the AO seminar series and many more enjoyed 
their corned beef sandwiches. 



Ivan Lapidus President

The main function of Beta Tau Delta fraternity is to 
provide social events for its members. The Annual Steak 
Fry, held in September of each year, is the first of such 
events. The new freshmen are welcomed into the fraternity. 
Various other social events include the ethnic dinner night 
where restaurants of ethnic groups are visited by the 
fraternity, and the cultural night where the fraternity 
arranges for its members to see a cultural event. The 
fraternity also provides extracurricular educational 
opportunities in the form of guest speakers, seminars and 
demonstrations of techniques to fellow classmen.

The Department of Dental Gustology is an organization 

devoted to constantly reminding the members of the dental 

school community that there is more to the human body than 

just the oral cavity and that all facets of human existance should 

be explored to the fullest. The DDG pledges itself to the pursuit 

of vigorous enjoyment, relish, and zest at all times and at all 

costs regardless of previous convictions. 

Under the leadership of their chairman, Warren Jesek, and 

the associate chairmen, Steve Folson and Bill Piskorowski, the 

Department members continued their research into the effects of 

imbibition of organically flavored aqueous solutions of ethanol at 

numerous symposia on the subject conducted by the Division of 

Pharmacotherapeutics and Internal Medicaments in conjunction 

with the Social Division of the Department. Although other 

divisions of the Department exist (e.g. the Cultural Division, the 

Modifiable Biosynapses Division, the Religious Enrichment 

Division, etc.) they were much less active.

The Beta Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta is now the 
largest chapter of the largest and oldest professional 
dental fraternity in the country. The Beta Chapter was 
organized at the Chicago College of Dental Surgery on 
March 24, 1885 by Dr. L. L. Davis. 

In its history, eleven Beta men have served the Frater- 
nity as Supreme Grand Master, and four Honorary Beta 
Chapter members and six student members of this chap- 
ter have become presidents of the American Dental As- 
sociation. 

Today the Beta Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta is one of 
42 active undergraduate chapters in dental schools 
throughout the United States. The Class of '79 has 51 
Delts, who upon graduation become members of the 
Supreme Chapter of Delta Sigma Delta for life!

The Kappa Chapter of Psi Omega National Dental 
Fraternity was reactivated through the ardent work of Dr. 
Stoffel and members of the classes of 1978 and 1979. For the 
Class of '79 the Fraternity provided sporting activities, winter 
weekends, summer beach parties, and speakers on various 
pertinent topics. Psi Omega brought to the dental school its 
unforgettable Psi-O Subs, the best submarine sandwiches in all 
of Chicagoland. 

When speaking of a fraternity though, what is most 
important are the members themselves and what they 
contribute to each other in their professional development. 
The atmosphere of friendship, support, and true brotherly love 
shared by all the members of Kappa Chapter is a benefit 
from which all derive meaning and pleasure for the rest of 
their lives.

Xi Psi Phi, an international dental fraternity, was founded at the 

University of Michigan in 1889. Our own Lambda Chapter was 

founded March 14, 1896, and has been in continuous operation 

since that time. In our 83 year history, Lambda has been heir to 9 

Supreme Presidents and many locally prominent dental politicians. 

Our motto, "Hospitality is the Brotherhood of Friendship" is the 

basis for all ZIP activities. Monthly seminars assist students in 

making career decisions. Social dinner meetings bring our members 

into tight bonds of brotherhood, and our most memorable social 

event, the Annual ZIP Golf Outing, recently celebrated its 20th 

Anniversary. These and other events all lend credence to our belief. 

The senior class of 1979 saw 9 brothers enter the world of 

dentistry as professionals in every sense of the word. They take 

with them a special fondness for their brothers and the remainder 

of the dental school community. We, the members of Xi Psi Phi, 

salute them.

The Guild of St. Apollonia is an international organization that attempts 
to foster the development of its members in all aspects of their lives. 

The Guild sponsors social activities such as the Freshmen Welcome, the 
Fall Picnic, and the St. Apollonia Feast Day Celebration. Educational 
activities include noontime seminars, as well as all-day Saturday seminars. 
The primary service project is the annual Christmas Party for Misercordia, 
which is truly worthwhile for both the members and people of Misercordia 
Home. And in response to the spiritual needs of our members, the Guild 
sponsors the annual Mass of Holy Spirit each September and in the spring 
the annual Communion Breakfast Mass. 

Student support of the activities and ideals of the Saint Apollonia Guild 
have made it the largest organization on campus.

The Loyola Dental Wives Club's goal is to provide social functions which 
will lead to personal development and lifelong friendships. Some of the 
activities for the 1978-1979 year were the hayride, self-defense 
demonstration, progressive dinner, Halloween Party, craft show, ski trip, 
tupperware party, pot luck dinner and the senior banquet. 

Yes, it's really a lot of fun!

But on the other hand, we were

had become so great a part of our 
lives. We saw our friends 
scattered throughout the country, 
perhaps never to be seen again. 




"Fathers Baumhart, Reinke, Evett. Deans Suriano, 
Madonia, Guine, Jacobs. Faculty members. And Doctors 
... the Class of 1979. 

Doctors — it is a great pleasure to say Doctors. It 
represents years and years of effort, sacrifice, patience, and 
dedication. 

Welcome to the family of Dentistry. I should like to 
thank each class member for bestowing on me the honor of 
addressing this class, which holds a special place in my 
heart, one last time. This honor is the pinnacle of my 
teaching career. 

But, be that as it may, I would like to say that having 
been on both ends of the graduation day spectrum — the 
recipient of a dental degree and the parent of a recipient of 
a dental degree — I can reflect the feelings of the new 
doctors, as well as the feelings of their parents and loved 
ones. 

These are your children. Their success is your success. 
You should be proud of them and of yourselves. And the 
same holds true for the spouses and loved ones of the 
graduates. 

I hope you don't mind if 1 just continue my last lecture, 
and make a few observations on things I have done right 
and wrong in over thirty years of looking into peoples' 
mouths. Tonight I would like to give you the formula for 
happiness. Because, unfortunately, happiness doesn't 
necessarily go hand-in-hand with success. Three requisites 
for happinesss and success are attitude, aptitude, and 
application." 

Dr. Daniel P. Kozie 





130 






"Number one is Attitude. 

A positive mental attitude or self image is necessary for 
happiness and success. If you love . . . you are loved. One 
person wakes up and cheerfully says, "Good morning, 
Lord!" while another wakes up and says, "Good Lord, 
morning!" A half a glass of water is half full to one person 
and half empty to another. There is a feast of life served 
up to all of us, but, unfortunately, a lot of people don't 
even pull up a chair. 

I hope all of you will stay true to yourselves. Do your 
best — as you have been trained to do your best. But, 
don't ever get on life's merry-go-round! Before strongly 
desiring anything, we should look carefully into the 
happiness of its present owner. Never keep up with the 
Joneses. There will always be a Jones ahead of you. 

What are happiness and success? They are not money. 
Money has nothing to do with success. You cannot buy 
success. You cannot buy happiness. Success and happiness 
are a frame of mind. Success and happiness are elusive and 
are entirely up to you. As you grow and understand 
yourselves, the more you will understand and care for 
others. True happiness lies in being the person you want to 
be. Character is what you really are. Reputation is what 
people think you are. If you have empathy and care for 
your patients, the material things will take care of 
themselves. I stress this point because I love you. I want 
the image you project to inspire confidence." 

Dr. Daniel P. Kozie 








So it was an end and a 
beginning. The start of a new life, 
a new career. Another step. 
Another stage. Another 
graduation. 



131 



"Number two is Aptitude. 

Confidence brings up the subject of aptitude, an ingredient for 

happiness and success. As new doctors, your feelings are uncertainty and 

fear . . . uncertainty of the future. Are you ready? Where do you go from 

here? Are you well trained? Will you be successful? Are they expecting 

too much of you? 

Believe me — you are ready! And I wouldn't say it if I didn't sincerely 

believe it and know it to be true. You are on the threshold of a rewarding 

career in a fine profession. 

Each year at commencement time, someone gets up before the 

graduating class and says, "You were the best students. You are the best 

doctors." And it becomes a cliche. But, I remember a couple of years 

back when you moved from freshman to sophomore year. I asked Dr. 

Stoffel what kind of class he was sending me. He told me, "Outstanding!" 

And you didn't disappoint me. This class was unique. When you 

completed the sophomore course, I congratulated Dr. Gowgiel on the 

excellent choices the admissions committee had made. In my ten years at 

the University, I have never had a class of your caliber. 

One point I want to emphasize . . . have faith in yourselves! You are 

capable. You are ready to go out and practice. Sure, you have much to 

learn. But don't we all? We dentists must be continuous students — 

actively participating in continuing education courses, seminars, and 

conventions. But you are starting out with a dental education second to 

none. 
I am not a graduate of your school. But I wish I were." 

Dr. Daniel P. Kozie 






?jj*M 




And an end to an era. To our 
formal education. To our 
relationships and experiences. To 
daily interactions with our 
classmates who have become our 
colleagues and our friends. 



132 




"The last of the three categories — Application — concerns where and 
how you practice. As for your location — find an area where the land has 
room to lie comfortably. I suspect that inner-city and the surrounding 
suburbs are quite saturated with dentists, and that many of the more 
opportune practice locations are in outlying areas. Don't be afraid to look 
to new areas for your success. 

It is so easy to build a successful practice. Just be honest with your 
God, your family, your profession, and yourself. You must espouse Will 
Rogers' philosophy of never meeting a man you don't like. It works. It is 
difficult to dislike someone who likes you. It is difficult to be angry with 
someone who likes you. People respond to warmth and feeling. 

Write your own eulogy while you live. Decide your life's goals. Think, 
evaluate, be content. Look for new vistas to explore. Be curious. This 
leads to action. You get what you plant. So plant good intentions into 
solid effort and you will reap success. Whatever your mind can conceive 
and believe, you can achieve. There is sanctity and therapy in work. 

Each day is precious. We all have the same amount of time. The way 
we use this valuable commodity is what divides the successful from the 
failures. A successful practice is not how much money you have in the 
bank. It is how satisfied and fulfilled you feel. Always strive to be 
professional. Always appreciate the patient. Dentistry without judgment 
and care, the patient would be better off without. Make people feel 
important. Make them feel proud they were astute enough to choose you 
for their dentist. 

Finally, because you are such a unique class, I hope that you never lose 
touch. I hope that at 5, 10, 20, and even 25 years from now you will all 
make the class reunions and enjoy each others growth and experiences. All 
these men at the head table have tried to give you the finest dental 
education available. And I think they have succeeded. In spite of all the 
ups and downs, I think you will look back some day and find that the 
years spent in school were among the happiest of your lives. 

I know that when my class gets together, after over thirty years, 
everybody looks back and says how many good times we shared. When 
you look at each other you will observe some of you won't have as much 
hair. Some will have acquired a set of ulcers. Some will be struggling to 
put children through school. But your sense of camaraderie will span the 
years and you will all still be as one. The great class of 1979." 

Dr. Daniel P. Kozie 




But it doesn't have to end, 
because true friendship is forever. 
We should all make a 
commitment to keep in touch 
with each other and get together 
periodically at conventions and 
reunions. 





133 



This will keep our friendships 

strong. For as the Roman 

philosopher Seneca said, "To lose 

a friend is the greatest of all 

evils." 





"In closing, I would like to leave you with the following thoughts: 

1. No one of you will get out of this world alive. 

2. Maintain a sense of values. 

3. Take care of yourselves. Good health is your major source of 
wealth. Without it, happiness is meaningless. 

4. Strive to be cheerful and helpful. People will repay you in kind. 

5. Avoid being angry, abrasive, or vengeful. These are negative emo- 
tions. 

6. Avoid zealots. They are generally humorless. 

7. Strive to listen more and to talk less. It is difficult to learn anything 
when talking. 

8. Avoid giving advice. Wise men don't need it and fools won't heed 
it. 

9. Be gentle with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathet- 
ic with the troubled, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. At 
some time in your lives you will have been all of these. 

10. Never equate money with success. Many successful moneymakers 
are miserable failures as human beings. 

1 1 . What is more important than the success you achieve is the manner 
in which you achieve it. 

12. Love each other. Love is the most enriching ingredient of life. The 
love in your heart wasn't put there to stay. Love isn't love till it's 
given away. 

1 3. Remember, an act of kindness, either by a word of encouragement, 
a helping hand, or a prayer, will outlast the finest restoration you 
will ever place. 

I have loved each and every one of you. 

Go forth and be happy — and prosper. In that order. 

And, as Dean Suriano would say, "That's an order!" 

Dr. Daniel P. Kozie

The soul of man is cast.

Dear Friends and Colleagues: 

About the only benefit of being editor of a yearbook is the chance 
to have the last word — a personal retrospective on a four year slice of life. 

But first, I would like to thank all of those who helped in the 
production of this book. Special acknowledgment must be made to Jim Cockerill, 
John Blickenstaff , Jim Whitehead, and Dr. Suriano for their many contributions 
and support. To those of you in the class that helped out, many thanks. And 

to those of you who did not well, it was to be expected. "They also 

serve who only stand and watch." 

With that out of the way, on to retrospective. We arrived here as 
strangers and we left less than four years later as friends. That about covers 
it. Everything in between was sort of a blur. We had our ups and downs. 
Looking back, I can recall a lot more downs than ups. There were a lot of 
times when we wondered if we would ever make it and if it was worth all of the 
hassle. 

In a few years we will be looking back on these four years as the 
"good old days." God only knows what the future will hold for each of us. 
The only thing of importance is that we enjoy what we're doing. As Loyola's 
former dean, Dr. W. H. Logan put it, "It matters much whether we make good 
dentists in our college course, but it matters more that we make of them good 
men and good citizens of the world." 

Cultivating lasting friendships is the quickest route to happiness. 
We have spent four years getting to know each other and becoming friends. It 
is said that people in adversity always help each other out and pull together. 
Perhaps that was our motivation. But regardless of what brought us together, 
we should not allow time and distance to dissolve this friendship. Hopefully, 
we will see most of the class at the annual Midwinter Meeting in Chicago. We 
will also have to plan periodic reunions. Dr. Dan Kozie has extended an 
invitation to us to hold our five year reunion in 1984 at his farm outside of 
Kenosha, Wisconsin. He has promised to arrange for appropriate "speakers" to 
make it a continuing education seminar (tax deductable) . 

In order to be able to keep in touch, I want to keep an up-to-date 
address list of all class members. As soon as you have set up a base of 
operations, whether it is your office, or the office where you will associate 
for whatever period of time, or a residency, or grad school, or home, or 
whatever -- please send me a card with your address and phone number. Whenever 
you move, send me your new address so that the list will be current. Then, if 
you need to contact anyone from the class, you can contact me for their address. 
My address and phone number are indicated below. If you are ever in the 
neighborhood, please drop in. 

In closing, I wish to offer each of you my best wishes for happiness 
and success in everything you do. May you all attain your personal goals of 
wealth, prestige, family, business, and -- most importantly -- personal happiness 
and fulfillment. 

As ever, 

Thomas Ahnger, D.D.S.
