Dear Class of 

ou are the final graduating class from Loyola University 
ichool of Dentistry. It is therefore with a feeling of 
larticular honor but also with great sadness that I greet 
ou and wish you Godspeed. Many years of college and 
ental school are drawing to a close and in those years 
our experiences have been unique and demanding. 
Inlike any other class, the most recent part of your 
ducation has taken place in an atmosphere of shock 
nd dismay combined with the worry that you may not be 
nished before the school closes. Despite that, you have 
esponded well and will graduate with the same high 
tandards as your predecessors. Over the years you have 
[rown into health care professionals entrusted with the 
ife and welfare of your fellow men and women. That is an 
inormous privilege and responsibility but you will handle 
t well because you are Loyola graduates. 

'rofessionally you have taken just the first step. You will 
till need to attend continuing education programs on a 
egular basis so that you can advance and grow. 
)entistry is not static. Indeed it is changing rapidly and 
'OU will need to work at staying up-to-date right from the 
)eginning. This need not involve expensive winter 
:ourses in Colorado or Florida. It does involve keeping in 
ouch with your colleagues, attending local dental society 
neetings and at least one national meeting annually. It 
equires real participation in those meetings — not just 
egistering and going off to see the local tourist 

There will continue to be a dental presence at Loyola 
Medical Center to care for the patients whose medical 
:ondition requires good oral health. In this context, and 
hrough a continuation of the Dental Alumni Association, 
A/e hope you will stay in touch with Loyola and, when 
)ossible, make your advice and assistance available. The 
)ental Alumni Association is an important and active 
group and you should become involved in it 

Finally you must look to your personal life, to your 
pouse, children, parents and friends. You have probably 
neglected them these last few years. All the people in 
your life are important but above all your family and your 
patients. Treat them with care and consideration and you 
will be a success. 

I wish you joy in your work, peace in your heart and a few 
dollars at the end of the day. May the road rise with you 
and the wind be always at your back.

Bids Farewell to 

Loyola Dental School 

... "for such memories 
there is no closure." 

Closure of a celebrated professional school is 
an emotional experience for everyone concerned: 
administration, students, faculty, staff and alumni. 
It means no returning to one's Alma Mater, ever! 

I know the feeling well. For me, the closing of 
Loyola Dental School was deja vu. In the fifteen 
years of my professional training for ordination to 
the priesthood, I experienced the closing of every 
one of my schools. I can't return to my Alma 
Maters; and there were four of them! 

Milford Novitiate Campus of Xavier University, where I was discharged from the U.S. Marines, wa 
closed and converted into an ecumenical retirement center. West Beden College Campus of LoyoL 
University Chicago, where I studied three years of philosophy and four years of theology, was closei 
and sold to developers. St. Xavier High School in downtown Cincinnati, where I taught for thre 
years in the course of my professional training, was demolished in favor of a suburban site. And SI 
Stanislaus Tertianship in Parma, Ohio, where I spent the fifteenth year of my Jesuit training was con 
sidered too old a building to rehab and was razed. (Perhaps the pagan philosopher lieraclitus ma 
have had a point when he said that permanence was an illusion.) 

And yet, after the sadness of closure wanes and classmates scatter, I have discovered in my expe 
rience the permanence of memories: good memories, grateful memories, hilarious memories an 
fond memories. For such memories, there is no closure. And so it should be with memories of ol 
dental school. 

As Chaplain, I shall always be proud of the faculty/student mix of some twenty-six different ethni 
backgrounds united in the peaceful pursuit of the highest ethical and professional standards of der 
tal science.

Truman W. Brophy 


-hicago was fifty years old 
when thie city's first dental school 
opened its doors in 1883. Though 
originally called The Chicago 
Dental Infirmary, the school was 
soon restructured as The Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery and it 
eventually became the Loyola 
University School of Dentistry. 
This pioneer dental school grew 
to be one of the most influential 
in the world. From the very 
beginning it was distinguished by 
the effective force of its 
leadership, the quality of its 
faculty, the enthusiasm of its 
student body and alumni, and the 
innovative spirit with which it 
introduced procedures and 
devices for the improvement of 

The Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery would have started 
making dental history years 

earlier if members of the Chicago 
Dental Society had been able to 
initiate it. After establishing the 
first dental society in the state in 
1864, they often considered the 
feasibility of opening a dental 
school. Indianapolis had one, and 
so did St. Louis. But a first 
attempt, in 1869, had to be set 
aside. In all of Illinois the only 
way to learn dentistry continued 
to be by apprenticeship or 
preceptorship in the office of a 
practicing dentist who himself 
had probably learned in the same 

The Making of a 
Dental Educator 

That was the route taken by 
Truman W. Brophy whose family 
moved to Chicago late in 1866 

from rural Will County southwest 
of Chicago. When spring of 1867 
came, 19-year-old Truman began 
a preceptorship in the office of 
Dr. ]. O. Farnsworth at 116 
Randolph Street (81 West 
Randolph is now the equivalent 
address). One of his first tasks 
was learning to prepare the daily 
supply of nitrous oxide in a large 
tank. Having mastered that, he 
progressed through other stages 
of dental learning as far as his 
preceptor could lead him. Like 
many an ambitious young man 
before and since, he also went to 
night school, attending 
Dyhrenfurth's College and the 
Chicago Athenaeum for three 
years. And then, with financial 
backing from his cousin, T. D. 
Cleveland, he acquired Dr. 
Farnsworth's practice, moving the 
office to 30 Washington Street (25 
East Washington today) where he 
rented "all of the front of the 
second floor" beginning March 
15, 1871, for $75 a month. 

Brophy's practice was just 
seven months old when the 
Chicago Fire reduced the area to 

ashes. Somehow, Truman Brophy 
managed to get his operating 
chair and his dental library 
downstairs and through the 
crowds of people fleeing toward 
Lake Michigan. As the flames 
engulfed the buildings on 
Washington Street, his 
professional belongings were 
loaded on an Illinois Central 
railroad car — and re-located 
safe and sound about four miles 
south of downtown after the fire 
had burned itself out. He 
retrieved his chair and his books, 
but he no longer had a dental 

During the time of turmoil that 
followed the Fire, the young 
practitioner took stock of his 
situation and decided to seek a 
dental degree at the Pennsylvania 
Dental College. After graduating 
in the spring of 1872, he visited a 
number of dental clinics in 
eastern cities. Returning to a 
Chicago that was rapidly being 
rebuilt, Brophv resumed his 
dental practice, married, and 
established a home. Five years 
after his return, he enrolled in 

Rush Medical College. 
Graduating in 1879 as president of 
his class, he was appointed to the 
faculty, and for the next quarter 
of a century he taught courses in 
oral surgery at Rush Medical 

The First Charter 

Dr. Brophv and his dental 
associates attempted to establish a 
dental department at Rush, but, 
in the opinion of a joint 
investigating committee, existing 
dental schools were not well 
attended or supported, and there 
was no reason for more such 
schools. So Truman Brophy 
started looking for another wav to 
make dental education a reality in 
Chicago. The records show that in 
October 1882, a license was issued 
to Gordon W. Nichols, Truman 
W. Brophy, Frank H. Gardner, 
A. W. Harlan, and Eugene 
Talbot, as commissioners, "to 
open books" for subscription to 
the capital stock of The Chicago 

Crowds fleeing Chicago Fire. Tremont House at left. 

Dental hifirmary. Four months 
later, the commissioners filed 
their report and received a charter 
legalizing the corporation, and 
the Chicago Dental Infirmary 
came into being. The date was 
February 20, 1883. 

Because the founders believed 
that dentistry was a department 
of medicine and that dentists 
should have a medical education, 
they made the medical degree a 
prerequisite for admission to the 
new school. They named 
representatives of six of the city's 
medical schools to the Board of 
Directors, and they chose faculty 
members from both the medical 
and the dental professions. The 
20-week course that they 
designed was arranged to begin 
immediately after medical school 
graduation so that students could 
earn both degrees within two 
calendar years. 

On March 12, 1883, the first 
classes met in a building at 22 
Adams Street (now 57 West 
Adams). Instruction was given in 
the principles and practice of 
dental surgery, operative 
dentistrv, and prosthetic dentistry 
bv a faculty that included, as its 
head, W. W. Allport (President 
of the American Dental 
Association three years later). 
John W. Grouse and George W. 
Gushing of the faculty also served 
as ADA presidents in later years, 
and Dr. Gushing, in addition, had 
been an organizer of the Chicago 
Dental Society. P. J. Kester, R. H. 
Kimball, Edmund Noyes, and E. 
D. Swain also were faculty 
members. So was Greene 
Vardiman Black who came to 
Chicago in the first two years of 
the school's existence. Then, 
along with continuing his 
scientific studies and writing 
widely, he established the 
Northwestern University School 
of Dentistry.

First classes met in this 
building on Adams 

the original school were given 
each morning; clinical work was 
done in the afternoon. The 18 
students admitted to the first 
course paid $5 to matriculate, $50 
for tuition, and $20 for the final 
examination. The degree fee was 
$75, but the first course ended on 
July 31, 1883, with no candidates 
for the degree. The second course 
enrolled even fewer students — 
11. Two of them, Aristides E. 
Baldwin and Clayton Wilford 
Carson, however, passed the final 
examination and became the first 
graduates. An honorary degree 
was awarded to Edmund Noyes 
the same year. 

The Chicago College 
of Dental Surgery 

The directors had already 
recognized the need to accept 
students who did not have a 
medical degree, and while the 
second course was still in 
progress, they obtained a new 
charter by which The Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery was 
established on June 30, 1884. Dr. 
Brophy and the board of directors 
clearly saw that their school could 

best serve science and humanity if 
it had a broader base, and so it 
was converted into a dental 
school of high quality. As such, it 
became the largest dental school 
in the world, recognized 
everywhere for the thoroughness 
of its education and the caliber of 
its graduates. 

It is worth noting that Dr. 
Brophy endured some of the 
same trials that had faced Dr. 
Horace Hayden when he 
founded the nation's first dental 
school, the Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery. Hayden, too, had 
believed that dental education 
merited greater attention than it 
had received from medicine, and 
that the preceptorial plan of 
dental teaching was 
unsatisfactory. Yet there were 
obstacles, insurmountable at the 
time, to creating dental 
departments in medical schools. 
Both of these outstanding men 
insisted, nevertheless, that a 
sound knowledge of the basics of 
medical science was fundamental 
to a proper dental education. 
Consequently, students at the 
Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery studied anatomy and 
surgery, chemistry, physiology, 
materia medica and therapeutics. 

dental materia medica, histology, 
pathology, oral deformities, 
operative and prosthetic 
dentistry, and microscopy. 

Growth of the new College was 
immediate and continued. In 
1885, the dental degree was 
awarded to 22 men, including a 
young Canadian dentist named 
Charles N. Johnson who was to 
become a major force in the 
school and the profession. In 
March of 1886, the College 
Secretary, Edmund Noyes, 
recorded that 16 degrees were 
conferred. The following March 
(1887) one of the 37 graduates was 
Charles Edwin Bentley, the first 
black graduate and founder and 
first president of the 
Odontographic Society of 
Chicago. In 1888 there were 44 
graduates, and the number rose 
each year. When the first 
graduation of the 20th Century 
took place, there were 165 degree 
candidates, a distinguished 
faculty of 75, and 1,561 active, 
devoted alumni who were 
practicing and teaching 
throughout the nation and in 
many countries abroad.

Three Moves in Six Years 

According to Dr. Brophv's 
prospectus, the College on Adams 
Street had ample room and good 
light, and was 

well fitted with Morrison chairs, 
engines, brackets, and every needed 
appliance, both in the operating room 
and the laboratory, including nitrous 
oxide apparatus, drawers in which to 
safely lock students' instruments, and 
forceps, medicine cases, microscope: 

The College occupied the Adams 
Street quarters for only a year, 
and then moved to 5-6 
Washington Street (75-77 East 
Washington now) where it 
remained from 1884 to 1887. The 
next move was to a building at 
the northeast corner of Madison 
and Wabash where the College 
had rented half of the fourth floor 
and all of the fifth floor to 
accommodate its rapidly 
expanding student body. 

In 1889 two significant changes 
were made. One, academic, 
consisted of affiliation with Lake 
Forest University. Rush Medical 
College was Lake Forest's medical 
faculty; Chicago College of Dental 

Surgery now became its dental 

The other change was a move 
from Madison and Wabash to the 
northeast corner of Michigan and 
Randolph. This was "a pleasant 
location in many ways," Dr. 
Brophy later said, "but the fact 
that it was so near a commercial 
center was regarded as 
objectionable." Within four years 
the College was three miles away 
from Michigan and Randolph in 
its own building on the near west 

City Lights 

The whole downtown area was 
indeed becoming a commercial 
center as the city and its 
population grew. At its founding 
in 1833, Chicago had fewer than 
100 inhabitants. By 1871, the year 
of the Fire, it had more than 
300,000 and it had become the 
industrial, commercial, and 
cultural center of the Middle 
West. From an initial area of 35 
square miles it had expanded to 
embrace more than 185 square 

miles within its city limits. When 
the eleventh census was taken in 
1890, a mere 19 years after the 
fire, Chicago's population had 
tripled — it was more than 
1,099,850. A whole new city had 
arisen and its leaders and citizens 
were filled with civic ambition — 
"supervoluminous civicism," as 
one writer called it. 

An Industrial Exposition held 
only two years after the Fire 
demonstrated the material and 
cultural progress already 
achieved. The splendid exhibition 
building of glass and iron, 
designed by William W. 
Boyington, was still standing at 
Michigan and Adams when the 
College moved to Randolph and 
Michigan, but in 1892 it was torn 
down and replaced with a 
structure designed for the World's 
Congresses of the Columbian 
Exposition. After the Columbian 
Exposition closed, this building 
became the home of the Art 
Institute of Chicago. Farther 
down Michigan Avenue stood the 
majestic Auditorium, the great 
achievement of Adler and 
Sullivan, where Theodore 
Thomas and the young Chicago 
Symphony Orchestra became part 
of the city's life in 1891. 

As for industry and commerce, 
there were packing houses, grain 
elevators, railroads, all manner of 
factories. And there was the 
beginning of Chicago's unique 
architecture designed to meet the 
needs of industry and commerce. 
Jenney's famous Home Insurance 
Building, usually known as the 
first skyscraper, Burnham and 
Root's Rookery and their 
Monadnock Building, and the 
Stock Exchange Building all were 
constructed in the 80s and 90s. 
Many other office and commercial 
buildings and hotels helped to 
form a vibrant new metropolis. 
The old horse-drawn streetcars 
had been replaced by cable cars.

the first of which had appeared 
on State Street in 1883, the year 
the School was opened. The 
hubbub of construction was 
everywhere; the noisy activity of a 
city in progress was pervasive. 

That the directors of the College 
considered their immediate milieu 
less than appropriate for a 
professional school attests to their 
vision of the dental profession 
and their determination that the 

College should have a setting 
consistent with its purpose. 

In the summer of 1893, when 
Chicago was teeming with visitors 
to the Columbian Exposition, the 
College moved into its new home 
at the southeast corner of 
Harrison and Wood streets — far 
enough from the business center, 
but solidly situated among the 
hospitals, medical colleges, and 
schools of the west side health 

care complex which, in turn, was 
situated in a heavily populated 
section of the city. 

West Side Story 

Ground for the building had been 
purchased by the School. Two 
years later plans were drawn up 
for the permanent College 
building. Even though only half 
of the projected structure was the 
immediate goal, that in itself 
required a heavy financial 
commitment — $75,000 — which 
the Directors were able to meet 
onlv with the help of subscribers 
such as Dr. Nicholas Senn, Dr. 
Ephraim Ingalls, and Mr. Carlile 
Mason. The building at Harrison 
and Wood housed lecture rooms, 
classrooms, and clinics; its second 
floor was the "Dental Hospital." 
Its chief lecture room had a 
seating capacity of 450. 
Nevertheless, the expanding 
enrollment soon outgrew the 
facilities, and in 1896, the annual 
announcement contained this 

Each recurrent session has 
witnessed a demand for increased 
room, and at this time, though but 
scarcely settled in the splendid 
six-story building erected especially 
for its use three years ago, conditions 
are present which made important 
the acquisition of still more room, and 
so at present there is in process of 
construction an addition to the 
College building, which fully doubles 
its capacity.

Large windows were a necessity 
because, for the first quarter 
century that the School was in 
existence, daylight could be 
supplemented only by candles, 
coal oil lamps, and, eventually, by

illuminating gas. Most dental 
instruments were hand wrought 
and hand sharpened. Cavities 
were prepared by hand until 
hand drills and, later, 
foot-powered dental handpieces 
were developed. . . . Nitrous 
oxide was the usual anesthetic 
(cocaine and morphine were 
occasional choices) until Dr. H. 

A. Potts, a distinguished oral 
surgeon, brought procaine from 
Germany in 1906. . . . The dental 
chair was a converted barber 
chair, and brass cuspidors were a 
necessity in the absence of 
running water. . . . Artificial 
teeth were attached with solder to 
denture bases that had been 
swaged on plaster models. 

Changing Standards 

In 1904, while Truman Brophy 
was president of the National 
Association of Dental Faculties, it 
was agreed that dental education 
should occupy 30 six-day weeks 
in each of three years. The 
College announcement for 
1905-1906 stated that tuition and 
other fees in the city's three 
dental schools were to be $150 a 
year, and that a course of three 
years of 32 weeks each (six days a 
week) would be required, with a 
prerequisite of graduation from a 
four-year high school. The 
graduating class of 1908, first to 
complete the three-year 32-week 
course, considered, in the words 
of class valedictorian, L. J. 
Sykora, that the course, while 
specialized, was broad and 
comprehensive. "It carries us," he 
said, "beyond the technicalities of 
our profession and gives us an 
understanding of the structure 
and functioning of the whole 
human body." 

At the 1908 graduation. Dr. 
Brophy also commented on the 
new standards: 

We have passed the first quarter 
century. . . . We have graduated a 
class today the examinations of which 
show that it has passed a higher 
percent than any of its predecessors, 
and we feel that the standard of 
education long wished for by the 
addition of one year's work by this 
college, has been fruitful, and has 
made it possible for the class of '08 to 
make the splendid record which we 
have before us. 

In 1905, when the three-year 
course was introduced, the 24th 
annual announcement carried the 
news that the College had become 
the dental department of 
Valparaiso University. Lake 
Forest University, with which the 
first university affiliation had 
been made, had undergone 


reorganization and was now Lake 
Forest Academy. Commenting on 
the new affiliation. Dean Brophy 

Tlie founders have always 
maintained a high standard which 
has distinguished the institution as 
one of the leading schools of the 
world, devoted to dental education, 
and its graduates are engaged in the 
successful practice of dentistrv in 
almost every city in the land. ... To 
further the interests of the college and 
thereby increase its usefulness . . . 
[a] full university connection has been 
established with Valparaiso 
University, where every influence is 
in the interest of freedom and 
progress in education matters. 

Truman Brophy's Legacy 

Dr. Brophy continued as dean 
until 1920 when he was named 
Dean Emeritus. He had given 
tremendous service to dental 
education and to organized 
dentistry in those 37 years, too. In 
1881, even before launching the 
College, he was president of the 
Chicago Dental Society, and two 
years later he was first president 
of the Odontological Society of 
Chicago. He assisted in founding 
the Federation Dentaire 
Internationale and was elected 
president of that society in 1914 
— a post he continued to hold 
until 1926 because World War I 
and its aftermath prevented the 
society from functioning. He was 
a founder of the American 
College of Surgeons, and visitors 
to the Nickerson mansion at the 
corner of Wabash and Erie streets 
will find his name among the 
Fellows of the College on a plaque 
that commemorates the 
presentation of the mansion to 
the College of Surgeons in 1919. 
He was president of the Illinois 
State Dental Society and the 
National Association of Dental 

Prosthetics laboratory, Harrison Street.

Faculties. He published two 
books: Oral Surgery (1915) and 
Cleft Up ami Palate (1923) . When 
Brophy died in 1928, the College 
he labored to found and to 
administer had made its mark. 

Charles N. Johnson 

Closely associated with Dr. 
Brophy in molding the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery and in 
serving the profession was Dr. 
Charles N. Johnson, a Canadian 
who had been a dental apprentice 
for five years before matriculating 
at the Royal College of Dental 
Surgery of Toronto where he 
graduated as Gold Medalist of his 

1881 class. After practicing briefly 
in Ontario, he sold his practice 
and came to Chicago where he 
graduated from the College in 
1885. He was immediately 
appointed to the teaching staff 
where he became an associate of 
Drs. G. V. Black and George H. 
Gushing in operative dentistry. In 

1890 he succeeded Dr. Gushing as 
Chairman of the Operative 
Dentistry Department, and in 

1891 he was named Dean of Men. 
Retaining both of these positions 
until his death in 1938, he 
remained the guiding force of the 
College and one of the chief 
voices of the dental profession. 
He served as president of the 
Chicago Dental Society, the 
Illinois State Dental Society, the 


Dr. Johnson delivering 
lecture to students. 

American Dental Association, the 
Odontological Society of Chicago, 
and the Odontographic Society of 
Chicago. He was editor of Dental 
Review, The Bur, Desmos, and of 
the journal of the American Dental 
Association (from 1925 until his 
death in 1938). He wrote three 
textbooks — Principles and Practice 
of Filling Teeth, 1900; Success in 
Dental Practice, 1903; and Textbook 
of Operative Dentistry, 1908 — plus 
poetry, a novel, and hundreds of 
scientific articles. 

At a testimonial dinner held for 
Johnson in 1921, Dr. Brophy 
called him the "foremost teacher 
of operative dentistry in America 
today." When Dr. Johnson died. 
Dean William H. G. Logan paid 
this tribute: "The present day 
leaders of the dental profession 
are in unanimous agreement that 
Charles Nelson Johnson rightfully 
belonged to the first century of 
America's truly great dentists, 
and of that group no one 
possessed finer qualities of 
character or had a wider and 
more deserving distinction than 
this kindly gentleman of broad 

culture and exceptional native 

Dr. Harold Hillenbrand gave 
the ultimate testimonial; 

Dentistry has come to the end of an 
era with the death of Dr. Charles N. 
Johnson. The era began when 
dentistry was trying to free itself of 
the stigma of commercialism, when it 
was beginning to chafe at the 
pedestrianism of its educational and 
scientific methods. It ended with the 
death of one of its great leaders who 
leaves behind him an unbelievably 
rich heritage of achievement as an 
endowment for a new age. . . . The 
end of an era is here. With it comes 
the rewarding knowledge that it will 
be a better one because of the work 
and life of this man, one of the 
immortals of dentistry. 

Dental Public Health 

Drs. Brophy and Johnson had 
been active in promoting dental 
health education for the public. 
They believed in oral hygiene and 
preventive dentistry, and they 
wanted free dental "dispensaries" 

set up for the underprivileged. 
One of their great achievements 
was the recognition of dental 
health as indispensable to total 
health. As a result of their 
unremitting work, a dentist. Dr. 
E. F. Molt, was appointed as a 
regular member of the Chicago 
Board of Health in 1911. 

Some of the other important 
achievements of the early years of 
the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery were these: 

— It was the first institution of 
its kind in this country to 
introduce and use, for the benefit 
of its students, a complete 
apparatus for the cultivation of 
bacteria, thus demonstrating the 
agents that are active in causing 
dental caries. 

— Continuing education was 
pioneered at the College as early 
as 1889 when a four-week course 
was offered for the instruction of 

— Classes in practical dental 
technology, both operative and 
prosthetic, were given to 
freshman students. 

— Clinics, conducted by the 
most skilled practitioners 
available, were organized for 
senior students. 

— The Alumni Association 
inaugurated annual clinics for the 
continuing education of members, 
and established a publication. The 
Bur, edited for many years by Dr. 

Researchers and Writers 

As the College's renown grew and 
as dentistry gained its proper 
professional recognition, interest 
began to focus on research. In 
1911, at their annual clinic. Dr. J. 
P. Buckley told the Alumni 

To understand the tissue changes 
in disease, one must first be familiar 


with that organ in health. The 
students today are not only studying 
the histology of the liver and kidney, 
but they are also studying the minute 
anatomy of the pulpal organ and 
other dental tissues. All credit is due 
Professors DeWitt and Logan for the 
excellent work they are doing along 
these lines. 

Those professors and others 
were widely known because of 
their scientific articles and books 
and their lectures. Their writings, 
translated into many languages, 
were used as textbooks in several 
countries. A corps of lecturers, set 
up to answer the needs of the 
Public Dental Education 
Committee for speakers in Illinois 
and elsewhere, included Drs. W. 
H. G. Logan, F. B. Noyes, D. M. 


Buckley, A. D. Black, C. N. 
Johnson, and G. W. Cook. 

An International Flavor 

The second decade of the 20th 
Century saw the debut of the 
yearbook Deiitos in 1912. ... In 
the class of 1914 there were four 
women graduates — Marie and 
Mable Tichy, Anna Simonek, and 
Emilie Lohmann. ... By 1915, 
the graduating class had a highly 
international character; besides 
representatives of more than a 
score of states, there were degree 
candidates from many countries. 

Though the United States 
entered World War 1 in 1917, the 
College outlook for the 1917-1918 
academic year was bright; 125 
freshmen, 300 juniors, and 250 
seniors were enrolled as the 
newly established four-year 
course began. But at the 35th 
annual alumni banquet that year. 
Dean Brophy expressed his 
concern about the school's 
graduates in the US military 
forces in Europe. 

William H. G. Logan 

Dr. William H. G. Logan, class 
of 1896, longtime faculty member, 
and son-in-law of Dr. Brophy, 
had been called to active dutv in 
the Surgeon General's office 
where he headed up the Dental 
Division of the Medical 
Department. His responsibilities 
included planning the dental care 
of military personnel both here 
and abroad, and he is credited 
with reorganizing the Dental 
Corps of the US Army. As 
Colonel Logan he was honored at 
his class reunion in 1918. He, too, 
is honored as a Fellow of the 
American College of Surgeons on 
the historic Nickerson mansion 

New Categories 
ami an A rating 

The prestige of the College 
continued to grow. A 1919 
editorial in the International Journal 
of Orthodontia and Oral Surgery 
attested to it: 

During the last few years there has 
been no dental school in America that 
has possessed so valuable or so good 

a faculty as the Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery. On the faculty . . . 
there have been more men who have 
written textbooks and are 
international authorities than any 
other college in America. We need 
only to mention Brophy, Johnson, 
Logan, Case, Buckley, Hall, Roach 
and Bosland, all of whom are 
recognized authorities, which shows 
the faculty has been second to none. 

Meanwhile, the affiliation with 
Valparaiso University was 
terminated in 1919 and the 
College remained an independent 
and proprietarv institution until 
the end of 1921 when it was 
reincorporated as an 
independent, nonproprietary 
school; it remained in this 
category for two years until the 
affiliation with Loyola University 
in December 1923. ... In August 
1920, Dr. Brophy became Dean 
Emeritus, to be succeeded by Dr. 
Logan. . . . In July 1921, alumni 
received a letter signed by Drs. 
Brophy, Johnson, and Logan 
which said, in part: 

'Tn September, 1920, we called the 
attention of the alumni to the change 
in ownership and management of the 
College wherebv the institution was 
taken over by Drs. Truman W. 
Brophy, W. H. G. Logan and C. N. 
Johnson. At that time we intimated 
that such changes would be made as 
were necessary to entitle it to a Class 
'A' rating. It therefore gives me 
pleasure to announce that at a special 
meeting of the Dental Education 
Council of America on June 4, 1921, 
the College was rated Class 'A'." 

Merger with 
Loyola University 

In the early 1920s the Dental 
Education Council saw the need 
to raise the standards of dental 
education, and it advised the 
independent dental schools to 
seek union with established 
institutions of higher education. 


Consequently, the College sought 
incorporation with Loyola 

Through the devoted efforts of 
Dr. J. P. Harper, an alumnus and 
faculty member who had gone on 
to become dean of the Saint Louis 
University Dental School, Father 
William H. Agnew, SJ, President 
of Loyola, and the officials of the 
Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery worked out a satisfactory 
plan by which the two schools 
were merged and united in late 
1923. A subsequent President of 
Loyola, Father Robert M. Kelley, 
SJ, said: 

This incorporation has been one of 
those mutually happy and 
advantageous unions which has 
resulted in noteworthy benefits both 
for the dental profession and for 
dental education as well as for the 
influence and prestige of the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery and of 
Loyola University. 

When the Gies report, "Dental 
Education in the United States 
and Canada" was published in 
1926, this paragraph summed up 
the situation: 

The Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery, since its foundation, has 
been conducted by men of 
exceptional influence in organized 
dentistry, who, until 1921, made it 
one of the strongest supports of the 
proprietary system in dental 
education. In 1921 the conversion of 
the College to a non-proprietary 
condition, in 1923 to the status of 
affiliation with a university, and 
recently to complete integration with 
that University, are events of national 
significance in the conflict between 
private and public interests in the 
conduct of dental schools. 

With the help of Father Agnew, 
President of Loyola at the time of 
the merger, an endowment fund 
was created and named the 
Endowment Fund in honor of the 
three men who had done so much 

for the College. Loyola pledged to 
add to that fund so that the 
revenue would always be 
available to provide for the finest 
professional and research work in 

Dental Research 

Although research work had been 
done in earlier years, a formal 
research program was not 
established until 1924 when a 
department was organized under 
the direction of Professor 
Edward H. Hatton. In 1925 
Professor Balint Orban 
succeeded Dr. Hatton as Director 
of Research. Dr. Orban had been 
carrying on important research 
projects under the direction of 
Professor Bernhardt Gottlieb at 
the University of Vienna, and in 
1929 he returned to Vienna, to be 
replaced as Director of Research 
by another Viennese scholar. Dr. 
Rudolph Kronfeld. 

As reports of various research 
projects were published, the 
standing of the dental school was 
enhanced throughout the United 
States and also in Europe. 
Moreover, a number of faculty 
members undertook serious 
research work. By 1932, Drs. E. P. 
boulger, w. p. dundon, f. 
Fahrenbacker, H. p. Glupker, W. 
Holmes, W. Willman, H. 
Kesling, W. H. G. Logan, A. C. 
Pendleton, F. Scambler, and J. F. 
Svoboda were engaged in such 
studies. During 1931 and 1932, 
33 faculty members read and 
published papers on research 
problems, gave clinics or lectures, 
presented demonstrations, gave 
radio addresses, or had books or 
laboratory outlines published. 
And in 1932, advanced degrees 
were conferred on Drs. A. H. 
Mueller, R. W. McNulty, J. A. 
JuMER, and B. L. Herzberg. 

During the period of the 20s 
and early 30s, the extracurricular 
clinics, lectures, and discussions 
featuring faculty members 
numbered close to 200; in 
addition, hundreds of pages of 
scientific articles by faculty 
members were published. Before 
the Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery reached the half-century 
mark, 11 graduates had been 
named to deanships of other 
dental schools, and a great 
number were serving as teachers 
and researchers. The alumni, too, 
assumed an active role in 
organized dentistry, serving in 
city, state, and national 
associations. Some wrote 
textbooks and edited leading 
dental publications throughout 
the world. The Bur, first issued in 
1896, and edited over the years by 
C. N. Johnson, Reuben C. 
Brophy, R. B. Tuller, P. G. 
Puterbaugh, R. W. McNulty, W. 
Willman, A. W. Sauer, Jr., W. L 
McNeil, F. Amaturo, W. P. 
Burch, and L. Schwartz, 
continued to be the vital link 
between the alumni and their 
alma mater. 

The Golden Jubilee 

The year 1933 marked Chicago's 
Century of Progress and the 
Golden Jubilee of the College. 
Plans to double the size of the 
building at Harrison Street had 
been initiated. At the Jubilee 
banquet, the school could boast 
6,000 graduates, of whom 5,000 
were still living and practicing in 
all parts of the world. Dr. Johnson 
summarized the school's 

The Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery, Dental Department of 
Loyola University, in rounding out its 
50 years of existence, has contributed 
its full share not only to the 


dissemination of existing knowledge 
but to the general fund of information 
through the medium of research. 

In literature both periodical and 
textbook, its faculty has made more 
extensive contributions during the 
past 50 years than has probably fallen 
to the lot of any other single 
institution of dental learning in that 
period. In volume and in character 
the literature turned out by this 
institution exceeds that emanating 
from any other faculty. 

In textbooks alone, no fewer than 
23 have been written by faculty 
members or graduates. Twenty-four 
members of the faculty and alumni 
have been editors of dental 
periodicals and nine are at present 

The number of papers presented 
before dental societies, and published 
in our periodical literature from 
essayists connected with this 
institution, would aggregate into the 
thousands, and when checked as to 
their scientific and educational value 
they would form a very respectable 
cross section of the current dental 

The Eventful Thirties 

Dental education standards were 
constantly being upgraded, and, 
in March 1935, it was announced 
that the dental curriculum would 
henceforth be a four-year course 
with a prerequisite of 60 hours or 
two years of recognized college 
credit toward a BA or BS degree. 

In 1935, Dean Logan 
announced the establishment of a 
foundation — The Foundation for 
Dental Research of the Chicago 
College of Dental Surgery — with 
an annual grant of a minimum 
sum of $25,000, the gift of an 
anonymous business executive. 
... A remodeling job performed 
on the Harrison Street building in 
1937 provided a new and modern 
clinic and an efficient research 
laboratory . . . Radio round table 
discussions of dental health 

became a Saturday morning 
feature every third week on 
Station WJJD in 1938. The school's 
representatives were Drs. 
Warren, WilLiam 
ScHOEN, and Robert McNulty. 
. . . Faculty members conducting 
research presented essays on 
topics of interest that year at the 
55th Annual Homecoming. 
Among the essays were "Oral 
Lesions and Acute Infections," by 
Joseph Schaefer, MD, DDS, who 
had "naturally colored 
photographic slides" to show; 
"Galvanic Currents Within the 
Oral Cavity" by Oscar Kanner, 
MD; and "The Pathology of 
Pyorrhea Pockets" by Rudolf 
Kronfeld, MD, DDS. Alumni 
who came from out of town for 
that meeting found rooms at $1.50 
a night at the Professional Schools 
YMCA, a block north of the 
school (Dr. Brophv had been the 
largest contributor to that Y, 
having given $50,000 toward 
purchase of the site). 

The 40s and 50s 

World War II had erupted, and by 
1942 many alumni were in the 
armed forces. When the conflict 
ended in 1946, nearly 850 alumni 
had participated. Three had died 
in the service of their country: 
Herman E. Gresik, '42; Robert G. 
Herthneck, '40; and Edward J. 
O'Reilly, '34. The majority of 
entering freshmen (79 of 101) in 
1946 were veterans. . . . Dr. 
Harry Sicher, world renowned 
anatomist who had joined the 
faculty, was held in awe by 
students fortunate enough to be 
in his classes. Some of the 
aphorisms with which he 
punctuated his lectures were 
remembered with affection, too. 
... In 1947, Father James T. 
Hussey, SJ, President of Loyola, 

Robert W. McNulty 

signed a contract with the West 
Side Medical Center Commission 
for the purchase of an 8V2 acre 
tract of land on which the new 
medical-dental school was to be 
erected in the West Side Medical 
Center where a great era of 
development was beginning. . . . 
And in the following year, Mr. 
Frank J. Lewis, a Chicago 
philanthropist, announced that he 
would contribute more than 
$1,000,000 toward the $12,000,000 
needed to build and endow a new 
Loyola University medical-dental 

Dr. Robert W. McNulty, a 
faculty member for 24 years, 
became Dean in 1945 when Dr. 
Logan retired. Dr. McNulty 
resigned five years later to accept 
the deanship of the University of 
Southern California School of 
Dentistry. Succeeding him was 
Dr. A. Raymond Baralt, Jr., a 
graduate of Temple University 
and a member of its faculty. . . . 
The following year, another 
brilliant long-time (23 years) 
faculty member. Dr. Warren 
WiLLMAN, resigned as Professor of 
Operative Dentistry and head of 


A. Raymond Baralt, Jr. 

the department. Dr. Paul 
Dawson, a former Loyola 
professor, was appointed to the 

In 1952, the School welcomed 
Dr. Balint Orban when he 
returned to continue his research 
and to conduct classes in 
periodontics. . . . The entire 
dental profession mourned the 
passing of Michael P. Orlopp, 
dental educator and pioneer in 
the development of the science of 
dental materials. His most 
important research was on 
substitute materials for 
rubber-based dentures and on the 
shaking method of mixing plaster. 
... A museum of rare dental 
instruments was established in 
the third-floor library. . . . Dean 
Baralt appointed Dr. William 
McNeil editor of The Bur. . . . 
Affiliations between the School 
and area hospitals were 
coordinated during this period. 

At the Chicago Dental Society 
Midwinter meeting in 1954, 
dentists from around the world 
observed TV teaching techniques 
being pioneered at Loyola. 
"Teaching Dentistry with TV," 

directed by John Blickenstaff, 
demonstrated the new technique 
that was to become a standard 
teaching method in dentistry. 
. . . The Alumni Association 
named Dr. Edgar D. Coolidge to 
receive its first annual Award of 
Merit. . . . Ten Japanese alumni 
were recognized for their 
contributions to dentistry in 
Japan. . . . Dr. Walter A. 
BucHMANN advocated the 
"indirect approach" in the 
construction of inlays and 
crowns. . . . Dr. Ben Gurney 
recommended the use of 
homosulfonamide in root canal 
therapy. . . . Dr. Joseph R. 
Jarabak was appointed chairman 
of the Department of 
Orthodontia. . . . Dr. Joseph G. 
KoSTRUBALA became chairman of 
the Department of Oral Surgery. 
. . . Dr. Patrick D. Toto began 
heading up a cancer detection and 
tumor clinic at the school. . . . 
Alumni Chairman Dr. John 
McBride announced a program 
for the 72nd Annual Homecoming 
that read like a page from Who's 
Who: Drs. Harry Sicher, Joseph 
Jarabak, Frank Wentz, Paul 
Dawson, Walter Buchmann. 
... A draft of dentists, 204 this 
time, brought to 1,254 the number 
of dentists drafted for service in 
the Korean war. . . . Dr. William 
McNeil won the Alumni Award 
of Merit for his contributions to 
partial denture techniques. 

In 1956, Dean Baralt noted that 
Loyola University School of 
Dentistry, although 15th in size 
among the 43 dental schools in 
the country, received more 
applications for admission than 
any other. . . . The stellar 
attraction at the 73rd Annual 
Homecoming in April was a 
conference on high speed, at 

which alumni saw 
demonstrations of dental 
handpieces that could attain the 
unheard of speed of 200,000 rpm, 
according to Dr. George Week 
and his Scientific Exhibit 
Committee. . . . Dr. Gustav Rapp 
was appointed Acting Dean. Dr. 
Rapp, professor of biochemistry 
and a recipient of the Golden 
Microscope Award, was 
appointed to the post when Dean 
Baralt resigned to become the first 
dean of the new dental school in 
Puerto Rico. ... Dr. P. G. 
PuTERBAUGH, class of 1902, was 
the Alumni Award of Merit 
winner. "PG" had taught many 
subjects during his 36 years on 
the faculty; at retirement, he was 
chairman of the Department of 
Oral Surgery. . . . Dr. Carl J. 
Madda was President of the 
Alumni Association, and Dr. 
William P. Schoen was 
Homecoming Program Chairman. 
The Student End Result Clinics 
chairman was Dr. Richard M. 
Stamm who was later to become 
cochairman, with Dr. Joseph M. 
GowGiEL, of the Building 
Committee, and still later. 
Chairman of the Department of 
Operative Dentistry. 


William P. Schoen 

Dr. Schoen and the 
Dream of a New School 

Dr. William P. Schoen was 
named as dean late in 1956 by 
Father James F. Maguire, SJ, 
President of Loyola, and took 
office January 1, 1957. Former 
head of the Department of Dental 
Materials, Dr. Schoen, class of 
1929, had 27 years of teaching 
experience when he became dean. 
He knew the alumni who had 
graduated during those years, 
and, as editor of the Illinois Dental 
Journal, he had a wide 
acquaintance with alumni in the 
state. He was fortunate in having, 
as Secretary of the Faculty, Dr. 
Frank Amaturo whose broad 
experience in course scheduling 
and whose long association with 
the alumni proved to be 
tremendous assets over the next 
decade when funds had to be 
raised for a new building and 
course schedules had to be 
upgraded. When Dr. Schoen was 
appointed there was an 
understanding that a new dental 
school would be built, but how. 

when, and where were not 
spelled out. That the project 
would take 13 years of 
unremitting effort was not 

Remodeling Operations 

During 1957, the Foundation for 
Dental Research, instituted 
as the first such foundation 
in a dental school, was totally 
reorganized. The teaching 
schedules were revised by Dr. 
Amaturo so that a newly 
constructed third-floor laboratory 
would be in steady use. The 
following year, space that had 
been vacated by the old chemistry 
laboratory was rebuilt into an 
orthodontic research laboratory, 
prosthetics processing laboratory, 
and seminar room for graduate, 
postgraduate, and continuing 
education courses. The new 
orthodontic research laboratory 

which Dr. Joseph R. Jarabak 
personally, and his Orthodontic 
Foundation, helped to finance, 
contained electromyographic 
equipment. In addition, new 
encephalometric radiography 
equipment, the gift of Dr. Gil 
Carter, instructor in 
orthodontics, was installed. 

The new seminar room also 
housed the reorganized 
Postgraduate School headed by 
Thomas Grisamore, MD, DDS. 
The many postgraduate courses 
offered there were another step in 
strengthening ties with the 
alumni. . . . Because of the 
remodeling done on the third 
floor and elsewhere, in a project 
to modernize and make use of 
every inch of space in the 
venerable building, it was 
possible to accept ten more 
freshmen, bringing the freshman 
class to 100 students — many of 
whom were sons or daughters of 

Students observing oral examination, Harrison Street.

The Diamond Jubilee and the Early 60s 

In the spring of 1958, Loyola 
University School of Dentistry — 
Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery celebrated its Diamond 
Jubilee Homecoming. Dr. Frank 
Amaturo was President of the 
Alumni Association and Dr. 
Robert J. Pollock, Sr. was 
President-Elect, as well as being 
President of the Illinois State 
Dental Society. Dr. Walter 
DuNDON, class of 1944, was 
President of the Chicago Dental 
Society. During the Jubilee 
weekend. Dr. Harold 
Hillenbrand, class of 1930, 
Executive Secretary of the 
American Dental Association, was 
named to the Alumni Hall of 
Fame. The Truman W. Brophy 
Award in Dental Education and 
Administration was presented to 
Dr. Robert W. McNulty, class of 
1926, former Dean and, since 
1950, Dean of the University of 
Southern California Dental 
School. The Charles N. Johnson 
Award in Dental Literature and 
Journalism was given to Dr. Lon 

W. MoRREY, class of 1923, Editor 
of the ]ournal of the American 
Dental Association. The William H. 
G. Logan Award for Outstanding 
Contributions to the Army Dental 
Corps was given to Col. Leland 
G. Meder, class of 1924. 

Loyola University had acquired 
property in Skokie for a new 
medical center, but Dean Schoen 
and a committee of faculty 
members found the location 
unsuitable for operation of dental 
school clinics. Subsequently, the 
university started negotiations 
with the US Veterans 
Administration. The VA was 
planning a new hospital to be 
built adjacent to its Hines 
Hospital site on the edge of 
Maywood, and wanted this 
hospital to be associated with a 
university medical center for the 
benefit of patients, staff, and 
teaching personnel, and so that 
clinical facilities could be shared. 
Gen. John S. Gleason (a 
vice-president of the First 
National Bank of Chicago who 

was on leave to the Veterans 
Administration) brought about 
the affiliation, and, through his 
efforts, Loyola was able to acquire 
62 acres along the eastern (First 
Avenue) border of the Hines 
property. By 1962, the School 
could look forward to becoming a 
unit in its own university medical 
center, with the additional 
advantages offered by affiliation 
with a Veterans Hospital. 

New faculty members named in 
1964 included Dr. Joseph M. 
GowGiEL, class of 1950, an 
anatomist from the University of 
Chicago, and Dr. Rolf Gruber as 
Chairman of the Department of 
Dental Materials to replace Dr. 
Schoen. A combination 
Curriculum and Building 
Committee was formed with Dr. 
Richard Stamm as chairman. Dr. 
Gowgiel as cochairman, and Drs. 
Gruber, Santangelo, Schoen, and 
Amaturo as committee members. 
This committee worked with 
faculty to determine space needs 
in the new building.

One of the Curriculum 
Committee's first projects was to 
switch from the semester to the 
trimester system so that some 
traditional courses could be 
reduced and others amplified, 
and so that new courses could be 
added, to achieve the 
instructional goals recommended 
by the US Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare for 
schools requesting federal funds. 
HEW also recommended a 
faculty-student ratio of one 
teacher to 16 students in academic 
courses and one teacher to eight 
students in the clinics. These 
faculty-student ratios made 
multiples of 16 necessary in the 
student body; consequently a 
beginning freshman class of 128 
students was planned for the new 

Teaching by closed circuit 
television was emphasized in the 
curriculum under development, 
and wiring to provide for it was 
planned throughout the building. 
Small conference rooms were to 
be included on each floor so that 
closer faculty-student 
relationships could be established 
and maintained.

Members of the Curriculum 
Committee immersed themselves 
in the design of the new dental 
school. In addition to planning 
the switch to the trimester 
system, smaller group facilities, 
and closed circuit television 
instruction, they designed a series 
of "Conjoint Courses" for some 
subjects so that a single course 
would cover material previously 
taught separately by different 
departments. Scheduling for the 
first four years was extremely 
complicated. A minimum of 128 
freshmen would be starting in a 
completely new curriculum on the 
trimester system, while 85 
students in each of the three 
upper classes would continue on 
the old semester system. 
Moreover, plans were necessary 
to provide for approximately 50 
dental assistants, 65 dental 
hygienists, and 65 graduate 
students. Gradually, as the 
curriculum evolved, the building 
began to take shape, and plans 
could be finalized for use of the 
space available on each of the 
three floors. 

The unflagging efforts of the 
Curriculum Committee resulted 
in a curriculum and a building 
designed for one another. When 
Stanley Dube, Chief Architect at 
the office of Health, Education, 
and Welfare, toured the finished 
building, he called it "the most 
practical of the new dental 

Loyola Builds the New School 

The HEW grant for construction 
of the new school was approved 
on July 15, 1965, and 
ground-breaking, followed 
immediately by excavation, took 
place on April 26, 1967. Two years 
later, primary construction of the 
$10 million building was finished 
and phasing-out of the old 
building began. By July 1969 the 
first patient was registered in the 
new clinic, and on June 20 classes 
in the old building ceased. Ribbon 
cutting took place on August 18 at 
nine in the morning. Within an 
hour, as planned, the clinic and 
other school activities were in 
progress. On October 2 the first 
academic year began. On April 1, 
1970, the building was dedicated 
as one of the final events in 
Loyola University's Centennial 
Celebration and Annual Alumni 
Homecoming. Guest speakers at 
the dedication program included 
federal, state, and local 
dignitaries, and the festivities 
were climaxed by a banquet at the 
Pick-Congress Hotel. The first 

graduation from the new campus 
was on schedule — June 13, 1970. 

Although the most significant 
events during Dean Schoen's 
tenure were the development of 
the new curriculum and teaching 
program, and the planning and 
construction of the new physical 
plant to accommodate this 
program, there were other 
evidences of growth during those 
years. The number of graduate 
students more than doubled. 
Postgraduate and continuing 
education programs were 
expanded; the dental auxiliary 
utilization program was 
developed; research facilities were 
enlarged, and research centers at 
Hines and at Franklin Boulevard 
hospitals were instituted. 

Subsequent changes in federal 
policy toward medical and dental 
professional education 
demonstrated how crucial had 
been the timing of Dean Schoen's 
tireless work to enlist government 
support for the building project 
while such support was available.

The cutbacks in construction 
grants in the mid 1970s were 
accompanied by a decline in 
capitation support and an 
increase in required class size to 
obtain even the dwindling 
support available. Moreover, 
rampant inflation had the effect of 

increasing education costs. 

The School of Dentistry today 
owes a great debt to the vision 
and determination of Dr. Schoen, 
his colleagues, and the loyal 
alumni, and to the vision and 
determination of its founders. 

The 70s and 80s 

Dr. Raffaele Suriano became 
Dean in July 1973 on the 
resignation of Dr. Schoen. Dean 
Suriano, class of 1944, chosen 
from a field of more than 60 
candidates, had attained the rank 
of colonel during his career in the 
US Army. At the time of his 
selection, he was in the Surgeon 
General's office. He had, as 
Loyola President Father 
Raymond Baumhart, SJ, said, 
"spent most of the past decade 
planning, reviewing, evaluating, 
and approving educational 
programs in dentistry." 

For the first two years in the 
deanship. Dr. Suriano, like Dr. 
Schoen before him, had the 
invaluable assistance of Dr. 
Amaturo who guided the 
academic administration of the 
school as Associate Dean and 
who continued to work closely 
with the Alumni Association. Dr. 
Amaturo, who retired in 1975, 
was officially designated 
Executive Secretary Emeritus of 
the Alumni Association at the 
homecoming celebration in 1977. 

Dr. John Madonia, later 
designated Associate Dean for 
Academic Affairs, succeeded Dr. 
Amaturo as Associate Dean. . . . 
Dr. Marie Jacobs served as 
Assistant Dean for Clinical Affairs 
from 1975 until 1980 when she 
requested a return to clinical 
teaching. During her term of 
office, all patient files were 
computerized. . . . Dr. Edwin 
Gasior became Associate Dean 
for Clinical Affairs in 1980. . . . 
Dr. Gerald Guine served as 
Assistant Dean from 1976 until 
1982 when he, too, returned to 
teaching. . . . Dr. Gustav Rapp, 
Chairman of the Biochemistry 
Department and Acting Dean in 
1956, retired in 1976. ... Dr. 
Robert Pollock, Jr., resigned the 


Raffaele Suriano 

chairmanship of the Histology 
Department in 1980 to accept a 
position with the American 
Dental Association. . . . The 
number of women dental 
students increased considerably: 
the 1973 class included one 
woman; 1977 and 1978 had 20 
women members each. Although 

1979 had only ten, the total rose 
to 25 (of 140 graduates) in both 

1980 and 1981. 

A casualty of the 1970s was the 
dental assisting program which 
had accepted approximately 40 
students annually for its one-year 
program. Tax-supported 
community colleges that 
proliferated during that decade 
generally offered such programs. 
Consequently, Loyola turned its 
attention to educating dental 
hygienists and to graduate and 
postgraduate courses. ... As 
dental care of the handicapped 
became a national concern, the 
School initiated a requirement in 
1978 that every senior student 
treat at least one handicapped 
patient. . . . After five years as 

dean. Dr. Suriano was named 
Alumnus of the Year in 1978. . . . 
A three-year $100,000 per year 
research grant was awarded in 
1981 to the departments of 
Preventive Dentistry and 
Community Health, 
Biochemistry, and Microbiology 
by the Wm. Wrigley Co. for the 
development of an anticariogenic 
chewing gum. Drs. Kirk 
HoERMAN, loNis ScARPA, and 
Andrew Chludzinski are 
coprincipal investigators. ... In 
1982, new equipment for the 
Dental Auxiliary Utilization Clinic 
provided improved practice 
modes for students in 
four-handed sitdown dentistry. 

The Second Centur 


As its second century began 
Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery-Loyola University School 
of Dentistry was comfortably set- 
tled in a sleek four-story building 
at 2160 South First Avenue, 
Maywood. It had a total working 
space of 240,000 square feet with 
teaching areas that could be modi- 
fied as teaching objectives 

required. Its neighbors were 
Loyola University Stritch School 
of Medicine, Foster McCaw 
Hospital, Burke Ambulatory Care 
Center and the Veterans 
Administration Hospital. 

Almost all of the clinical disci- 
plines were taught on the ground 
level floor. The clinical areas were 
modular in concept and open in 
design. Of the 286 patient posi- 
tions in the School, 223 were locat- 
ed on this floor. Each student 
operatory cubicle simulated a pri- 
vate office, and in these cubicles 
sitdown dentistry, with the proper 
utilization of auxiliary personnel 
was practiced. Students had a 
large and varied patient popula- 
tion for clinical practice. The main 
waiting room, reception and infor- 
mation center. Associate Dean's 
office, and central chart room also 
were on this floor. 

On the lower level were located 
Orthodontics, Pedodontics, and 
Handicapped and Exceptional 
Patient areas. Preclinical Honors, 
Graduate Clinics, the junior-senior 
clinical laboratory, and lecture and 
seminar rooms were on this level 

The second floor was devoted 


primarily to the freshman-sopho- 
more teaching laboratories, class- 
rooms, and supporting facilities. 
Histological, physiological, patho- 
logical, microbiological, and 
anatomical material and equip- 
ment were provided for instruc- 
tion in the various laboratory sub- 
jects. Each student had a micro- 
scope so that independent study 
could be pursued, and air-driven 
high speed and low speed hand- 
pieces also were available for each 
student. Preclinical technique 
courses were taught in two dental 
science laboratories, and sitdown 
dentistry was taught from the 
start. An educational television 
room was located adjacent to the 
teaching areas, with material to 
complement other visual aids that 
enhance learning. Also on the sec- 
ond floor were the departments of 
Dental Materials, Physiology, 
Pharmacology, and Microbiology, 
with their respective preparation 

The third floor housed the 
administrative office, the 
Admissions Office, Dental 
Hygiene office and facilities for 
various basic science disciplines 
such as biochemistry, pathology, 
anatomy, and histology. Support 
facilities for these departments 
included cell kinetics and radia- 
tion biology laboratories, an 
instrument room, electron micro- 
scope, radioisotope facilities, and 
a periodicals reading room. 

The School of Dentistry had a 
yearly enrollment averaging more 
than 500 students, and a faculty of 
300. It was the largest dental 
school in the state . . . The Loyola 
School of Dentistry clinic where 
students, supervised by clinicians, 
tended to the dental needs of 
between 7,000 and 10,000 patients 
each year, registered 130,442 
patient visits in the period from 
July 1981 to July 1982, with a 
monthly average of 2,718 visits.

dency program, initiated in 1979, 
offered recent graduates the 
opportunity for a year of training 
in general practice that had a hos- 
pital component. 
Chicago College of Dental 
Surgery-Loyola University School 
of Dentistry has been very fortu- 
nate in its seven deans- Truman 
W. Brophy, William H.G. Logan, 
Robert W. McNulty, A. Raymond 
Baralt, Jr., Gustav W. Rapp 
(Acting Dean), William P. Schoen, 
Raffaele Suriano and Adian 
Stephens- all farseeing men of 
high principle. 

The Deans, in turn, have been 
blessed with unusually competent 
administrators such as P.G. 
Puterbaugh, Frank Amaturo, 
James Koebl and John Madonia. 

Researchers, several from 
European centers, had made many 
contributions to the essential sci- 
entific investigation that forms 
and informs modern dental prac- 
tice: Drs. Balint Orban, Rudolph 
Kronfeld, Frank Wentz, Harry 
Sicher, Gustav Rapp, W.D. 
Zoethout, Robert Pollock, Jr., and 
Warren Willman. 

Outstanding dental educators 
whose careful, individually orient- 
ed teaching of the various depart- 
ments of dentistry had con- 
tributed significantly to the exper- 
tise of their students, included 
these noted teachers: Drs. George 
H. Gushing, Walter Allport, John 
B. Buckley, Charles N. Johnson,

Leaders in 
Organized Dentistry 

From the time of Dr. Truman 
Brophy right down to the present, 
representatives of the school have 
been leaders in the important 
organizations of dentistry. 
Founder Brophy served as 
President of the Chicago Dental 
Society, the Illinois State Dental 
Society, and the National 
Association of Dental Faculties. 
Dr. C.N. Johnson was President of 
the Chicago Dental Society, the 
Illinois State Dental Society, and 
the American Dental Association. 
From 1925 until his death in 1938 
he was Editor of the Jonmnl of the 
American Dental Association. 

Charles Edwin Bentley, class of 
1887, organized a study club dur- 
ing his senior year that became the 
nucleus for the Odontographic 
Society of Chicago with Dr. 
Bentley as first president. A newly 
published biography of Charles 
Edwin Bentley by Clifton O. 
Dummett, DDS and Lois Doyle 
Dummett was dedicated to the 
Chicago College of Dental Surgery 
when it celebrated its centennial. 
Dr. Harry B. Pinney, class of 1900, 
was Secretary of the American 


Dental Association from 1927 to 
1946. His successor was Dr. 
Harold Hillenbrand, class of 1930, 
who was Secretary from 1946 to 
1968 and who also had been 
Editor in 1945 and 1946. During 
his term of office, the 
Headquarters Building at 211 East 
Chicago Avenue was planned and 
constructed, its second-floor audi- 
torium was dedicated to him in 
1979. Editor of the American 
Dental Association from 1947 to 
1962 was Dr. Lon W. Morrey, class 
of 1923. 

Dr. John Coady, class of 1953, 
was Acting Executive Director of 
the ADA from December 1978 to 
August 1979, at which time he 
became Executive Director. Dr. 
Robert W. Griffiths, class of 1944, 
was immediate Past President of 
the American Dental Association, 
and Dr. Robert M. linger, class of 
1946, a Past President of the 
Illinois State Dental Society was 
an ADA Trustee. 

Many of the alumni have held 
office in both the Chicago and the 
Illinois societies. Dr. William J.H. 
Sisson, class of 1944, was Vice 
President of the Illinois State 
Dental Society, and Dr. Lee J. 
Schwartz, class of 1950, was 
Editor. Dr. Richard A. Kozal, class 
of 1961, was President of the 
Chicago Dental Society, and Dr. 
Walter F. Lamacki, class of 1961, 
was Vice President. 

From earliest years the alumni 
have given substantial support to 
their alma mater. The first Alumni 
Association meeting was held in 
1885. At first, annual alumni meet- 
ings were held in the Leland Hotel 
in Chicago. The fifth annual meet- 
ing, in 1890, was the first to be 
held in the lecture room of the 
College; in 1891 the alumni inau- 
gurated the custom of giving a 
banquet to the graduating class. 
The tenth annual meeting, in 1894, 
launched the practice of holding a 
one-day program of clinics and a 
luncheon at the College. In 1895 

the Alumni Nezos was established 
as an official organ; it was 
renamed The Bur the following 
year. In 1914 the first Alumni 
Directory was compiled. At the 
meeting in 1923, the custom was 
inaugurated of holding a meeting 
of class chairmen and officers to 
prepare for the annual alumni 
meeting and to develop a program 
for the Homecoming; these pro- 
grams have consistently featured 
outstanding speakers and educa- 
tional exhibits. In 1948, the alumni 
launched a campaign to raise 
funds for a new building. 
Although that building never 
became a reality, the $525,000 
fund eventually went toward the 
cost of the new building. An annu- 
al alumni fund continues to raise 
money for the ongoing needs of 
the school. The 1981-1982 drive, 
under the chairmanship of Dr. 
Joseph A. Cantafio, class of 1954, 
raised a grand total of $252,043. 
The 1982-1983 drive chairman was 
Dr. Edwin E. Weinfield, class of 

care far more widely available in 
these years, too. Better-dentistry- 
for-more-people well describes the 
principal achievement of the first 
hundred years. 

Loyola University School of 
Dentistry entered its second centu- 
ry with a physical plant admirably 
suited to present and future edu- 
cational needs, and a renewed 
determination on the part of 
administration and faculty to pro- 
mote the dental health of the com- 
munity by offering the finest den- 
tal education to be had. Dental 
research now holds a real promise 
of effective means of preventing 
dental disease. A prime goal for 
the immediate future was to pur- 
sue this research and to teach 
effective prevention, as well as 
competent care, to tomorrow's

Centennial Salutations and 

With the beginning of the centen- 
nial, salutations and proclama- 
tions had been issued by officials 
in government and in organized 
dentistry. A sampling of these 
documents follows. 

The President of the United 
States, Ronald Reagan, congratu- 
lates "the faculty, alumni, and stu- 
dents of the oldest dental school in 
Illinois on their efforts to bring 
excellent dental care to the com- 
munity they serve" and looks to 
the dental profession "to ensure 
high quality health care and to 
encourage people to adopt life 
styles that prevent illness." 

The Honorable James R. 
Thompson, Governor of Illinois, 
proclaims "April 20, 1983, as 
Loyola University School of 
Dentistry-Chicago College of 
Dental Surgery Anniversary Day 
in Illinois, on behalf of all the citi- 
zens who have benefited from 
your teaching during the past cen- 

The Honorable Jane M. Bryne, 
Past Mayor of Chicago, singles out 
the honor accorded to the Schools 
in 1934 when the Royal College of 
Surgeons of London placed it on a 
list of recognized dental schools. 
Mayor Bryne proclaimed January 
1983 as Loyola University School 
of Dentistry Month in Chicago. 

Dr. Burton H. Press, President, 
and Dr. John M. Coady, Executive 
Director of the American Dental 
Association saluted the "impres- 
sive legacy of leadership" of the 
School and the contributions by 
which "one of the finest dental 
institutions in our country and in 
the world has enriched the art and 
science of dentistry - an achieve- 
ment which the profession of den- 
tistry can honor with pride." 

Dr. Carl H. Muller, President, 
and Dr. Cyril L. Friend, Secretary, 
of the Illinois State Dental Society, 
in a centennial proclamation, cited 

the School for having "consistent- 
ly kept the good dental health and 
well-being of our citizens foremost 
in its planning and development 
by maintaining high educational 
standards for its predoctoral stu- 
dents" and for "the development 
of ongoing postgraduate educa- 
tional programs to assist thou- 
sands of practicing dentists in 
maintaining their level of exper- 
tise and assuring the best dental 
care possible for the prevention of 
dental disease." 

Dr. Richard A. Kozal, President, 
and Dr. Robert L. Kimbrough, 

Secretary, in a proclamation 
issued by the Chicago Dental 
Society, recognized "the 
renowned faculty leaders who 
established themselves as pioneers 
and innovators not only in clinical 
techniques but as outstanding 
administrators and teachers in the 
field of dental education ... and 
the fact that forty-one percent of 
the dentists practicing in the 
greater metropolitan area served 
by the Chicago Dental Society are 
graduates of Loyola University 
School of Dentistry." 







of Service 



In review of the tenth decade 
of the school, dean Raffaele 
Suriano noted the normal 
progression of a growing 
school with increases in fac- 
ulty, staff and facilities. He 
also pointed to moderniza- 
tion and changes in technol- 
ogy, particularly the comput- 
erization of the Dental Clinic 
operations; the trend for 
post graduate training, and 
an enhancement of the 
school's relation with the 
hospital departments, result- 
ing in a broader experience 
for both undergraduates and 
graduate students in hospital 
related clinical care. 

Dean Suriano also noted the 
need to accommodate new 
trends in society, particularly 
the growing number of elder- 
ly patients, and increased 
attention to the needs of the 
mentally retarded and care of 
the medically compromised 

"The School of Dentistry has 
kept up with the ever-chang- 
ing challenge of dentistry 
just as Dr. Brophy, our 
founder, was in the fore- 
ground as the founder of 
dental education in the 
Chicago area," Dr. Surriano 

wrote in the March, 1983, 
issue of The Bur. "His 
school is still a leader in 
the nation when it comes 
to dental education. " 

Three years later, in the 
fall of 1986, Dean Aldan 
Stephens noted that the 
school was embarking 
upon a strategic planning 
process to guide it into the 
future in the face of signif- 
icant problems. "Student 
enrollment is dropping 
nationwide and many stu- 
dents are choosing heavily 
subsidized state schools 
with low tuition," Dean 
Stephens noted. "Loyola 
will inevitably see a further 
reduction in students," 
while expenses continue 
to rise in many areas. He 
further noted that the cost 
of "providing protection 
against the spread of 
hepatitis or AIDS is phe- 
nomenal and meeting 
accreditation require- 
ments is expensive."" 

In the summer of 1986, 
the school seized the ini- 
tiative in responding to 
precipitously falling enroll- 
ments among private den- 
tal schools throughout the 

nation. The action plan 
called for Loyola to 
become a smaller, more 
effective organization. 
Funded research would 
have to be increased and 
the school would re-enter 
the field of continuing 
education. The plan called 
for the school to become 
an integral part of the 
Medical Center and to con- 
tinue to reflect the philos- 
ophy and characteristics of 
Loyola as a Jesuit Univer- 

As the result of a careful 
strategic planning pro- 
cess, which included a 
thorough assessment of 
the national applicant 
pool, the following winter 
the school announced a 
target class size of 80-85 
students per class, down 
from 145. "This is a major 
reduction, but it is neces- 
sary in order to ensure the 
continued high quality of 
education at Loyola," Dean 
Stephens told alumni. 

Other significant changes 
were also announced, 
including the amalgama- 
tion of many departments, 
and the reduction of facul- 
ty and staff. "We have 
decided to bite the bullet 
at this stage rather than 
allow circumstances to 
whittle away at our vitali- 
ty," Dean Stephens said, 
and asked alumni for their 
continued input and 
advice, and for their finan- 
cial support. 

When the school reduced 
class size from 145 to 80- 
85, less space was need- 
ed. At the same time, a 
smaller faculty and staff 
necessitated increased 
efficiency. By the winter of 
"88, a planning committee 
of faculty and staff was 
formed to study alterna- 
tives. Prior to the downsiz- 
ing, some departments 

had offices in as many 
four different locations 
the building, and one 
the committees ma 
objectives was to put sin 
lar disciplines near o 
another. This objecti 
and more, was achiev* 
through a $l-million-pl 
remodeling progra 
which was partially offs 
by reducing the over 
space occupied by t 
dental school. Much of 
space was taken over 
the Stritch department 
microbiology. This 
turn, had the add 
advantage of providing 
good working relations! 
between dental resea 
units and the microbiolo 

With the beginning

mittee felt the amount 
nformation students 
to absorb had become 
nomenal and reducing 

intensity of the pro- 
n would be helpful. In 

message to alumni 

appeared in the Fall, 
9, issue of The Bur, 
n Stephens noted that 
cost of dental educa- 
1 had become "enor- 
is," in no small part to 
growing need to pro- 
: clinical personal and 
lents with gloves and 
>ks and glasses and to 
titute other infection 
itrol procedures. To 
D return the school to 

black, a number of 
time faculty had taken 
vantage of an early 
rement program, and 
ers had indicated a 
ingness to take advan- 
e of the generous pro- 
im. These positions 
aid not be filled, and a 

number of part-time facul- 
ty agreed to serve without 
reimbursement. The 
school also announced the 
establishment of a place- 
ment service to help pro- 
vide opportunities to Loy- 
ola graduates interested in 
purchasing practices or 
practicing dentistry with 
other Loyola graduates. 

In 1970, Loyola Universi- 
ty's School of Dentistry 
graduated its first class of 
registered dental hygien- 
ists - 24 women all told. 
Twenty years later, it had 
graduated more than 500 
dental hygienists. The pro- 
gram began officially in 
1968, when the dental 
school moved from its 
location within Cook 
County Hospital on Chica- 
go's West Side to the 65- 
acre campus in suburban 
Maywood. Graduates of 
the program received a 
certificate in dental 
hygiene and a Bachelor of 
Science degree from Loy- 
ola's College of Arts and 
Sciences. The baccalaure- 
ate degree qualifies them 
for employment as 
instructors, as well as for 
positions in government 
and industry. 

By the spring of 1991, five 
dental schools throughout 
the nation had closed their 
doors; freshman enroll- 
ment was less that 4,000 
students, down from 6,300 
first year students; faculty 
numbers had been 
reduced dramatically; 
many schools were faced 
with severe financial diffi- 
culties; and tuition had 
risen in an attempt to 
meet increasing education 
and clinic expenses, while 
students became more 
and more dependent on 
shrinking resources for 
financial support. 

Despite these and other 
difficulties, the education 
and patient care programs 
at Loyola continued suc- 
cessfully due to the com- 
mitment and determina- 
tion of all concerned. Dean 
Stephens told alumni in 
the Spring, 1991, issue of 
The Bur. "However," he 
added, "we know that 
changes are not over yet. 
Indeed, some of the most 
important still lie ahead. " 

Dean Stephens called for 
changes in both curricu- 
lum and clinic programs. 
"The steps are under way 
to address the issues, " he 
wrote. The atmosphere is 
one of excitement with 
moments of terror. " 

After trailing quietly 
behind other Chicago den- 
tal schools for a number of 
years, by the spring of 
1992 Loyola's School of 
Dentistry began to emerge 
as a leader in continuing 
education (CE) for dental 
practitioners through the 

In less than five years, the 
school's CE program had 
grown from one annual 
endodontics course to 
more than 22 courses and 

seminars featuring both 
dental faculty and nation- 
ally known speakers 
whose presentations 
attracted hundreds of par- 
ticipants. Hot topics 
included HIV, the revised 
OSHA and CDC guidelines, 
and the constant introduc- 
tion of new dental materi- 
als and procedures. Cen- 
tral to the program were 
goals of maintaining high 
quality courses for general 
practitioners to help them 
upgrade their skills, learn 
new techniques, and 
experiment with new prod- 

On June 5, 1992, the Loy- 
ola University Board of 
Trustees decided to close 
the School of Dentistry on 
June 30, 1993. The deci- 
sion was made after an 
extensive and careful 
study of the school's pre- 
sent and future prospects. 

"This was a sad day for 
Loyola University and for 
you, the dental alumni," 
Raymond Baumhart, S.J., 
wrote in the Fall, 1992, 
issue of The Bur. "as pres- 
ident of Loyola University 
for the past 23 years, 1 
assure you that this was 
one of the most difficult 
days of my tenure." 

Fr. Baumhart went on to 
say: "We are pleased with 
the support shown by the 
dental alumni for the 
school. But it is important 
to realize that even after 
adding ... alumni gifts to 
the school's revenues, in 
fiscal 1992 the dental 
school had an operating 
deficit of more than $4 
million. This is a subsidy 
of more than $10,000 
granted to each dental 
student last year. Dental 
School operating losses 
for the last 1 1 years have 
totaled almost $15 mil- 
lion. That helps to explain 


Sophomore lecture hall was opened in 1969. 

the financial aspect of the trustees' 
decision to close the school on June 
30, 1993. 

"There is no way that Loyola's dental 
alumni and benefactors can provide 
sufficient gifts to ease this growing 
debt. That is why I reluctantly rec- 
ommend to the university's board of 
trustees that it close the school. I 
regret the pain the decision causes 
you as alumni of the school. 

"Thank you for your support of den- 
tal education at Loyola. I hope that 
you will continue to remember with 
pride your years as a Loyola dental 
student, and will remain active 
members of the Loyola alumni com-

ly - Jose, Thomas, Art and Ray. But most

Without the love, support, and under-

God is our refuge and strength, a very 
present help in trouble. The Lord almighty 
is with us, the God of Jacob is our 
fortress. Great is the Lord, and most wor- 
thy of praise in the city of our God, His 
holy mountain. (Psalm 46:1, 7;48:1) 
Firstable, I thank God for His help in my 
life, specially my achievement at Loyola 
Gniv. I also thank my wife, Ann, for just 
being together with me and giving birth to 
Hannah who gives me joy all of the time. 
Lastly I thank my parent, my parent-in- 
law, aunt and uncle Dr. Kim and all my 
relatives who pray for me all of the time. 

I wish my talent in Dentistry can be used 
for God's work. 


Oscar F. Cordero 

All my efforts to reach this goal are dedi- 
cated to my parents, who taught me the 
value of hard work and education, and to 
my wife, Fransesca, for her continual 
love, understanding and support; tolerat- 
ing my absence while I was pursuing my 
professional education. 

I love you all,

To look back at my four years at Loyola, I 
can say it was a challenge. I had my ups 
and downs just like we all did, but some- 
how I knew we would all get through it (of 
course I didn't mean all 96 of us when we 
were freshman). I'm looking forward to a 
successful future in Dentistry with my 
beautiful wife by my side. Finally, I get my 
chance to show her who's boss!! 1 hope 
the friendships I have made continue for a 
long, long time. Congrats to all my class- 
mates, the Class of 1993 has made histo- 
ry by being the last of a long tradition.

more, to be good Christians 
in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Finally, Brothers, Qood-by. Aim for perfection,

party in 2003. No excuses. As far as the

the degree to practice in a profession 
with one of the most positive outlooks for 
the future.

From the Clinical Staff - Loyola Dental 

we the clinical staff of Loyola University School of Dentistry would like to say how proud we are to have worked here for 
so many years. We are very saddened by the fact that there will no longer be a School of Dentistry at Loyola University, 
but life goes on and, hopefully we will all take away with us good memories of our time spent at Loyola. 

We are very proud to have had a part in seeing so many students graduate from Loyola and go on to become success- 
ful dentists We have often said that graduation is both a sad and happy time for us because of the fact that we want you 
to graduate and leave, but again we will miss you. We hope you will have good memories of us also and remember we 
are all working in one direction and that is to help you to graduate. 

We would like to wish each and every one of you good luck in your future and hope you are very successful in all your

le design uses as its central figure a serpent entwined about an ancient Arabian cautery in the man- 
r of the single serpent of Aesculapius, the Greek god of medicine, coiled about a rod. The greek let- 
■ A (delta), for dentistry, and the greek letter O (omnicron), for odont (tooth) form the periphery of
