Dr. C. Newton Van Horn presented the secretary's report: 

The luncheon. 




As secretary of the MCV Alumni Association, it is my duty to report to you on the transactions of the MCV Alumni 
Association. Dr. Rudolph C. Thomason, secretary, died on January 31, and I was elected to the position by mail ballot in 

The fall meeting of the Board was held on September 10, 1978. The executive committee and ad hoc committee met on 
July 27, 1978. A motion was made and passed that Mr. Dunn, director of Alumni Activities of VCU, be asked to present a 
concrete proposal for reorganization of the Alumni Association in black and white. It was moved and passed that a lawyer 
be hired to advise us. On September 6, 1978, the committee Ustened to the wise counsel of an attorney, Mr. Waller Horsley, 
who suggested we should be slow in giving up our independence and to make sure if we did it would be in our best interest 
and that of MCV. On September 10, 1978, the committee moved we go into fund raising. The Board rejected the proposal 
of separate associations for each school. They moved 

1 . The MCV Alumni Association will retain its legal independence and identity. 

2. They will become a part of the VCU Alumni Council if it is established. 

3. Ways will be sought to work cooperatively with the alumni activities office to avoid duplication. 

4. A funding structure will be explored which will eliminate (or reduce) the confusion caused by the current prac- 

It was moved that under the lines of reorganization of Doctor Ackell's plan the Board of Councillors be elected rather 
than appointed and to use Doctor Ackell's plan as a guide to modify or reorganize the MCV Alumni Association in such a 
way as to facilitate the liaison with the different schools and administration. 

At a called meeting of the Board held on December 3 the following motions came out of the executive committee which 
had met on September 21. 

1 . A committee was appointed to clarify the definition of sections with Doctor Ackell and to ask his assistance in 
getting the committee meetings back on track and it was agreed that the replies to Doctor Boyd's letter in the May 
issue of The Scarab be pubUshed in the November issue. 
On November 27 Doctor Boyd reported that Doctor Ackell had two suggestions to make: 

1 . To have no further meetings and to let the deans follow their original course of action. 

2. Or he could personally attempt to set up one additional meeting with the deans/alumni committee. 
Your committee pleaded with him to follow the latter course. 

The ad hoc alumni committee was commended for its many hours of hard work and dedication in trying to obtain a 
working agreement. 

Four proposals were presented to the Board: 

1. To adopt in total the plan presented in the white paper which was developed by Mr. Dunn and Dr. Ackell and 
this was discussed at the June meeting. (Not passed) 

2. To dissolve the MCV Alumni Association, liquidate our assets and place them in the alumni fund of the MCV 
Foundation. The dispersal of these funds would be controlled by a committee of alumni. (Not passed) 

3. To try to approach Dr. Ackell with the possibility of appointing a new committee to start from scratch to negoti- 
ate the role of the MCV Alumni Association in conjunction with the University, disregarding all previous dis- 
cussions with the present deans/alumni committee which began functioning on December 12, 1977. (Passed) 

4. To better serve our alumni and the MCV campus, we feel this can be best done by our remaining independent, 
and realizing this would necessitate the development of a comprehensive fund-raising campaign for this organiza- 
tion. (No action) 

The January meeting of the Board was held on January 28. Doctor Hudgens apologized for the absence of Doctor Ackell 
who had promised to be at the meeting. In the report of the executive committee on December 1 8, Dr. Robert O. Hudgens, 
Mr. Linwood S. Leavitt, and Dr. Marvin F. West were nominated to the negotiating committee and as alternates, Mrs. Jane 
K. Garber, Miss Dorsye Russell, and Mr. Kirby H. Smith, Jr. Doctor Hudgens said he would notify them. 

By mail ballot Mrs. Gail W. Griffey, Mrs. Frances W. Kay, and Dr. Thomas W. Nooney, Jr. were elected to round out 
the executive committee so that all schools would be represented. 

Salary adjustments for the staff and a retirement plan was funded for Miss Franck. In the discussion which ensued, it was 
pointed out that Miss Franck's salary was actually low compared with that received by other persons in similar positions, to 
say nothing of the added duties she performs and the limited staff with which she works. 

On January 28 Mr. Leavitt was named chairman of the executive committee. The reunion banquet was to be replaced by 
a cocktail party. These actions were unanimously approved by the Board. 

The Board meeting of the MCV Alumni Association was held at the Alumni House on June 1, 1979. Dr. Robert Hudgens 
presided and attendance of the Board members was excellent. 

Minutes of the previous meeting was approved. Committee reports were received. 

Dean Bacon's request for a wide screen TV for the student lounge was discussed but tabled until the September meeting. 

A request was received from Mr. Paul Hartman (D'81) for funds from the Alumni Association supporting a trip by him 
to a symposium in the Peoples RepubUc of China. The Board felt these funds would more appropriately come from the 
MCV Foundation. 

August, 1979 21 

The Board expressed their sorrow over the deaths of Board members, Dr. Rudolph C. Thomason and Dr. Donald L. Bax- 
ter, this year. 

The report of the nominating committee was received. 
Newly elected members of the Board were aimounced. 

Dr. Hudgens presented and the Board approved a series of draft proposals which have been developed after many serious 
hours of negotiation by the new ad hoc committee and further reviewed and revised by the executive committee. A sum- 
mary of the draft proposals will follow in the president's report. 

The Board gratefully acknowledged and expressed its appreciation for the long and faithful service of Miss Minnie 
Franck and regretfully accepted her resignation effective July 1, 1979. 

It is sincerely hoped Miss Franck will continue her role as traveling secretary to alumni chapters in the future. 
The meeting was adjourned at 4 p.m. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. Newton Van Horn, M.D. 

Dr. John W. Parker, Jr., moved for the acceptance of the report, Dr. Oscar Martin seconded the motion, which carried. 
Dr. Robert O. Hudgens delivered his report: 


One year ago I stood here before you as your new president-elect and pledged that I did not intend to preside over the 
death of our Alumni Association. Little did I realize how dangerously close to death our patient would come! 

After several months of intensive care, an injection or two of enthusiasm, an infusion of mututal cooperation, and the 
ministering of tender loving care by many hands, I am glad to be able to report to you today that the MCV Alumni Associa- 
tion is indeed alive and well and facing perhaps the best prognosis that it has in years. 

By an affirmative vote yesterday, your Board of Trustees accomplished a monumental achievement. More than a dozen 
years of conflict between the organized alumni and the University (its deans, its administrators, and its faculty) now has a 
strong likelihood of coming to an end. A great deal more than a simple "armed truce" has been accomplished. Indeed, 
much of the bitterness, the misunderstanding, and the frustration on both sides has given way to a new spirit of cooperation 
and mutual support. This has been due in large measure to the strong leadership of our new president. Dr. Ackell, and his 
often expressed concern for the establishment of better relations between the University and its alumni. To its everlasting 
credit, your Alumni Associaiton Board was able to put aside past feelings of hurt and mistrust and work cooperatively in 
trying to formulate a new approach to our long-standing dilemma. 

And so a new MCV Alumni Association is evolving — new only in its format and its internal organization. The truly im- 
portant parts of the old have been carefully retained — our name, our charter, our house, our records, our contact and vis- 
itation with alumni chapters, our involvement in the arranging of occasions such as this — all of these remain the same. Most 
important, the authority and the responsibihty of the alumni Board of Trustees has not been diluted. 

The best of the old has been retained and now can be blended with new responsibiUties and new opportunities which 
were previously denied us. Long have we wished to be involved in some of the decision-making processes of our individual 
schools. Long have we wished for the deans to look to us for support, leadership, and counsel. Previous Alumni Association 
presidents (including especially those here today) tried vaUantly to make their voices heard in administrative corridors but 
to no avail. 

Our new format now assures us of a built-in mechanism of greater access to the schools and the deans. The adversary 
relationship between the University and the Alumni Association is now finally recognized as being mutually destructive 
and it is being changed. Hopefully a new partnership may now evolve. We, as alumni, feel that we do have expertise in the 
health-care needs of the Commonwealth. We are looking forward to an opportunity of making a contribution. 

The Alumni Association welcomes its new role and responsibihty, is grateful to the president for having assured it, and 
pledges its intention of being a positive and constructive influence in helping our alma mater reach its goals. 

Based upon the basic agreement and the draft proposals approved by the Board, the next few weeks will be devoted to 
the drafting of a legal document between the University and the MCV Alumni Association thus guaranteeing our future. 

Change frequently brings frustration and always confusion. I expect both as we pass through the second half of this year. 
By the time your next president addresses you, I hope and expect our new organizational structure will be fully developed 
and running smoothly. Forgive us please if you witness a few growing pains. 

On your behalf, I pledge to Dr. Ackell and to the deans our desire to be helpful. I express also our plea to involve us 
increasingly in deliberations which affect our schools. I pledge our continuing efforts to support and to improve our alma 

And so our patient — the MCV Alumni Associaton — did not die. It has survived stronger and better for the ordeal it has 
been through. 

It is bom again — Hallelujah! 

Robert O. Hudgens, M.D. 

A motion by Dr. Parker moved for the acceptance of the report. Mrs. Kay seconded the motion which passed. 
There was no old business or new business. 

Dr. Hudgens said, "As you know, several years ago the MCV Alumni Association estabUshed our Alumnus of the Year 
Award. One of the nicest things about having this job is to be able to present this award each year." 



The recipient of this year's award has given so much of herself to her abna mater over the years since her graduation. Her 
service began back in the early thirties with her chairmanship of the Nursing Section of the Alumni Association of the Med- 
ical College of Virginia, then an arm of the MCV Alumni Association. Recognition by the then dean of nursing, Frances 
Helen Zeigler, was expressed in a letter which said in part: "I congratulate you on your splendid active organization. You 
are the greatest inspiration to those of us who are directing the activities of the school. Personally, I would find it very diffi- 
cult not to have your ever ready consideration and assistance." 

She was appointed to the executive committee of the Board of Trustees in 1934 and remained a member of the Board for 
a long period of time. She was vice president for several terms and her participation in the affairs of the College included 
two four-year terms on the MCV Board of Visitors, and two years on the advisory board after the merger. One cannot for- 
get the endless hours she spent in raising funds for the Nursing Section lectureship or how she chaired the bazaars to obtain 
funds. Her concern for the older graduates of the school has brightened many a day. 

Briefly to tell you of her career and her profession, she was supervisor of the outpatient department at MCV from 1930 to 
1936. She was director of the nursing program of the American Red Cross from 1938 to 1971. Among her honors were the 
Ann Magnussen award for Red Cross service and she received the first Outstanding Nurse Award from MCV in 1970. 

So we are really proud today to make our award of Outstanding Alumnus of the Year to a good friend, a fifty-year grad- 
uate this year, Anne Franks Mahoney. 

Mrs. Mahoney graciously acknowledged the award. 

Dr. Robert O. Hudgens has just 

awarded Mrs. Anne F. Mahoney the 

Alumnus of the Year Award. 

August, 1979 



By this time, I'm sure you are ready to go on your way but please let me take this opportunity to express my appreciation 

to all of you again for being so nice to me during all these years. My leaving you has been long planned and has nothing to 

do with any present events. I thank you all and I wish for the MCV Alumni Association only good things and to each of you 

go my best wishes. Though I'm resigning, you all will, I hope, continue to be my friends. 

Thank you once again. ,.,. • », t- i 

° Mmme M. Franck 

Executive Secretary 

Dr. Hudgens called on Mrs. Kay: 

I stand here in Reggie Rooke's stead with many ambivalent feelings! This day is both a happy and sad occasion for all of 

As you now know, Miss Franck has made the decision to leave us. Reggie so wanted to be here, but since he could not, 
and because I am not very articulate, I would simply like to share with you, and "Miss Minnie", Reggie's own thoughts. 

Dear Fran: 

This will be the first time I have missed the annual meeting and other functions of the Alumni Association that we enjoy 
at this time of the year since Minnie has been at the helm. I will miss being with my fellow alumni. 

I do want to add my bit to the accolades that Minnie will receive and so richly deserves. Please say to her for me that over 
the years it has been my privilege to work with numerous professional and trade organizations at the local, state, and na- 
tional levels and that among them I have never observed an executive director with the ability, loyalty, and dedication that 
she has given to the MCV Alumni Association. 

For Minnie it has been a twenty-four-hour-a-day job and she has never asked for a raise in salary or complained about 
the work load which she has carried daily during the last twenty-three years. 

It has been a genuine pleasure to work with her over the years and I join my fellow alumni in wishing for her a long and

A testimonial of sincere appreciation presented to Minnie M. Franck in honor and with deep appreciation of the distin- 
guished and unselfish service beyond the call of duty given to the Association with outstanding leadership, vision, and abil- 
ity as secretary of the Medical College of Virginia Alumni Association 1956-1979. In testimony whereof the officers have 
affixed their names, Robert O. Hudgens, M.D., president, and Linwood S. Leavitt, R. Ph., chairman, executive committee. 

Mrs. Kay then presented her with a check and said, "Here's a very small token of our love and appreciation for a job 
more than well done from your past presidents, who have had the honor and pleasure of serving you, and our Board of 
Trustees. God Bless."

The nominating conmiittee submits for your consideration the following candidates for office for the calendar year 1980: 

President, Mr. Linwood S. Leavitt, P'41, Virginia Beach, Virginia 

President-elect, Dr. Edward James Wiley, M'56, Richmond, Virginia 

Vice president. Medicine, Dr. Ota T. Graham, Jr., M'53, Richmond, Virginia 

Vice president. Dentistry, Dr. Bennett A. Malbon, D'58, Richmond, Virginia

Vice president. Allied Health, Mrs. Katherine A. Prentice, MT'63, Richmond, Virginia 

Vice president, Basic Sciences, Dr. Thomas H. Nooney, Jr., Ph.D.'70, Richmond, Virginia 

Secretary, Dr. Marvin F. West, D'58, Williamsburg, Virginia 

Treasurer, Dr. James T. Tucker, M'27, Richmond, Virginia 

Assistant treasurer, Mrs. Frances W. Kay, N'59, Richmond, Virginia 
Dr. Hudgens asked for further nominations. Dr. Parker moved the nominations be closed, Dr. Henderson seconded the 
motion which was approved and Dr. Hudgens requested the secretary to cast a unanimous vote. 

Dr. Hudgens said: "Somewhere along the line, I developed a great deal of respect for my predecessor. Dr. Herb Boyd, 
since I've been trying to hold his job for this past year. Herb, I wish you would come forward for a moment, we have a little 
something we'd Uke to give you. In light of some of the things that have happened to presidents recently we have had the 
past president's emblem redesigned, it now looks like a purple heart. Herb, you absolutely did an outstanding job here last 
year and you continue to be supportive and helpful in our executive committee sessions and in the Board of Trustee's meet- 
ings. You made my job much easier and have been an enormous, help. I want to express my personal congratulations and 
appreciation for all you have done for the Association." 

Dr. Hudgens introduced the president-elect, Mr. Linwood Leavitt, of Virginia Beach, MCV class of pharmacy, 1941. "Af- 
ter spending the early 40's in the naval service, he returned to his community and has been a retail pharmacist prior to 
owning his own pharmacy. He has served with distinction in many offices besides those in which our Association knows 
him. He has been secretary of the Virginia State Board of Pharmacy, elected to the executive committee of the National 
Association of Boards of Pharmacy, and served as its president from 1974 to 1975. He's a Shriner, a Rotarian, and was pres- 
ident of the Rotary Club in 1974. He will serve this group, I'm sure, in his usual quiet and thorough way. He will be a 
distinguished and outstanding president for us and he has been an enormous help to us in the last few weeks and months 
when he and I and Marvin West have been trying to work on these proposals. One of the nice things about Linwood when- 
ever you ask him for help, he's right there, even though he has to come from Virginia Beach to do it. As long as the Associa- 
tion can guarantee gas, I'll promise you he'll do the job." 
Mr. Leavitt replied: 


"Thank you very much. President Bob, ladies and gentlemen, members of the alumni Association. I cannot tell you ex- 
actly how I feel today, really, as a result of yesterday's meeting. Frankly, I was apprehensive, almost disgusted to the point 
of just throwing in the hat but I really want to congratulate the Board of Trustees for its action yesterday. I feel like the 
officers of this Association and the Board itself have chartered for itself a new course. I feel like we can do nothing but go 
ahead and I'm just delighted to be a part of it. I feel like we're on the right track. I feel that this Association will go to 
unbounded heights we have never before had and I just feel you will be behind us, I certainly hope, I know you will, be- 
cause you are an alumnus of MCV. I want to thank you very much for your vote of confidence and I assure you I will do all 
in my power to promote this organization and MCV. Thank you very much." 

The meeting was adjourned.
