November 15 

Exhibit 

To Benefit 

Alumni House 



r. William H. Turner (D'69) , who 
a few years ago turned in his dental in- 
struments to model wildlife sculptures, 
will offer a selection of his works for sale 
to benefit the MCV Alumni House 
Building Fund at The Commonwealth 
Club in Richmond on November 15, 
1990. The special exhibit and reception 
for Dr. Turner will be held from 6:30 to 
9:00 pm. (Interested alumni may call 
Mrs. Frances W. Kay, executive direc- 
tor of the MCV Alumni Association, at 
(804) 2254594. 

Last year in an interview for the Nor- 
folk Virginian-Pilot, Dr. Turner traced, 
in his typically succinct way, his re- 
markable career which has included, 
besides the practice of dentistry, being 
a boat builder and commercial fisher- 
man. "I didn't set out to be a sculptor. It 
just kind of evolved, like our shop here 
has evolved from one building to eight 
buildings." 

Whether it is a pelican diving, an Os- 
prey catching a Speckled trout, a 
Red-tailed hawk preying on a Flying 
Squirrel, or terns feeding above the 
splashing Chesapeake Bay, Dr. Turner 
has captured essential moments in the 
wildlife of his native Eastern Shore (of 
Virginia). In one sculpture, a Canada 
goose seems to have just lighted in an 
Accomack County cornfield, the coun- 
try where Dr. Turner hunted and fished 
as a boy and where his family has lived 
since the seventeenth century. 

Now Dr. Turner no longer hunts to 
kill. His trophies are ones he has cre- 
ated in his art. He now uses cameras to 
shoot a pair of dolphins jumping above 
the waves, a Wood duck preening, or an 
alligator curling its tail and yawning. 
He catches on film a school of Look- 
down fish swimming, a panther in a 
Florida zoo stalking an invisible prey. 
Beluga whales feeding at the Mystic 
and Baltimore Aquaria, and otters play- 
ing. These pictures help him sculpt the 
figures. Dr. Turner also uses live models 
for his sculptures. 

The Bonefish in bronze and silver 
nosing a golden Blue crab and a bronze 
eagle clasping a Pintail duck make it 
clear that fine detail is one of the trade- 
marks of Dr. Turner's artistry. From 
his study of living Bobwhite quail and 
Canvasback drakes, he created bronze

sculptures, recently issued in editions 
of 35. Dr. Turner is especially inter- 
ested in the ways animals move and the 
technical challenges those characteris- 
tic movements present to a sculptor. 

Recently there have been reports 
that a life-size sculpture of a Black bear 
similar to one installed on the campus of 
Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, 
North Carolina, in 1988, was attacked 
by a real bear. Mistaking the bronze 
sculpture for a rival, the live bear tried 
to maul it. Dr. Turner smiled when he 
heard the story of the "attack" on his 
sculpture and said he guessed he should 



take it as a compliment to the authentic- 
ity of his bronze Black bear. 

Since starting his foundry on the 
Eastern Shore in 1982, Dr. Turner has 
used the "lost wax" method of casting 
bronze, an ancient labor-intensive art 
involving eight steps. Large individual 
pieces and groups are cast in sections, 
then welded together, the seams care- 
fully retooled and polished. A block and 
tackle chain and scaffolding about 25 
feet high are used to assemble large 
sculptures like the geese flying or the 
dolphins leaping. 

Over a hundred different animals in 



bronze are on display in his gallery. 
And Turner sculptures can be found at 
museums and universities, on private 
estates and in public buildings and 
gardens, in the District of Columbia,

order to sculpt accurately the way 
their feathers lie on their backs. 



Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massa- 
chusetts, Minnesota, New York, North 
Carolina, South Carolina, and Wiscon- 
sin. Dr. Turner states, "I always said 
that as a sculptor, the three places I 
would like (my work) to be in were 
Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina 
('Great Blue Heron'), the Oval Office 
('Bonefish'), and the American Museum 
of Natural History in New York (Tim- 
ber-Wolf Family," a work in progress)." 
Dr. Turner is only the tenth sculptor 
in the history of the American Museum 
of Natural History in New York to be 
given a commission for a work. The life- 
size "Timber-Wolf Family" will be a me- 
morial to Robert H. Rockwell, the re- 
nowned sculptor and taxidermist at die 
museum, who in the 1940s retired to 
the Eastern Shore where he became 
Dr. Turner's mentor and friend. 



SCARAB 



Adopting a wolf cub to observe him 
at play and keeping a family of Bob- 
white quail outside his studio window in 
order to observe the way the feathers 
lie on their backs are typical of Dr. 
Turner's early stages of work on a piece 
of sculpture. Along with a supply of 
Fujichrome professional film and stacks 
of periodicals, such as International 
Wildlife, Natural History, and Audubon, 
specimens of wildlife are kept in his stu- 
dios. Visitors are surprised when Cyn- 
thia Jester, Dr. Turner's assistant (and 
a former operating room technician) , 
opens the doors to the refrigerator and 
freezer to show a planked otter or flying 
fish, alligator, or spider being studied 
by Dr. Turner. 

Visitors come to Turner Sculpture 
near Onley, Virginia, 45 miles from the 
Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on Route 
13, from all over the world; and the gal- 
lery's guest book for any one day may 
have names and addresses from Maine, 
Kansas, and California. As people walk 
through the gallery, they see a myriad 
of bronze waterfowl and land birds, fish, 
and other wildlife: Anhingas, Carolina 
wrens, Pileated woodpeckers, Louisi- 
ana herons, teal mallards, screech owls, 
tarpon, trout, bobcats, and foxes. The 
prices range from $175 for a frog on a 
lily pad to $75,000 for the black bear. 
Most pieces are priced between $500

Turner and David H. Turner, is in

Beach, Florida. 



and $10,000. Buyers of Turner sculp- 
ture have seen their investments appre- 
ciate. An example is "The Little Blue 
Hen" that has increased from $3,500 at 
issue to $8,000 for the remaining one. 

Dr. Turner has held many exhibi- 
tions, most recently in Palm Beach, 
Greenwich, Baltimore, Chicago, and 
Maltha's Vineyard. He shows his work 
with only one other sculptor, his middle 
son, David, who says that at seven years 
old, he watched his father at work in the 
foundry and began to hope that one day 
he would be pouring the 2,000 degree 
liquid metal into his own silica molds. 

! ike his father, David approached 
eer as a sculptor indirectly.

majoring in biology at the College of 
William and Mary and working in 
Washington. David has used his own 
young children as models for a life-size 
work featuring a girl and boy feeding 
carrots to a goat, pig, and goose, called 
"Barnyard Scene." Youth Haven, an or- 
phanage in Naples, Florida, owns the 



Sculpted Jewelry. Earrings, pins, cuff 
links, and tie tacs will be designed as 
fish, turtles, owls, and other animals in 
sterling silver and 14K and 18K gold 
and cast in the same way the bronze 
sculptures are. Some pieces will incor- 
porate diamonds and rubies. Prices will 
range from $50 to hundreds of dollars. 





sculpture, and two 
more castings have 
been ordered. David 
is now sculpting a fig- 
ure in clay of a Black 
bear eight feet tall 
which will soon be 
cast in bronze for the 
Philadelphia Zoo and 
for a new bear mu- 
seum in Florida. 

Another son of Dr. 
Turner, William H. 
Turner II (D'87), fol- 
lowed his father into 
dentistry and prac- 
tices in a wing of the same building with 
the sculpture gallery. A third son, Robert, 
practices law in an office there. 

Twenty-seven artisans and crafts- 
people work at Turner Sculpture enjoy- 
ing the unusual employee benefit of 
being able to cast their own pieces of 
sculpture in the foundry after hours. 
David Eisenhour, "Ike," the senior met- 
alworker, is one of the artisans who is 
recognized and encouraged by Dr. 
Turner to develop his own talents. Kathy 
Cummings, the chief patinor, is called 
the "best in the U.S." by Dr. Turner. 

In the spring issue of Tracks, the 
newsletter Dr. Turner writes for the pa- 
trons of Turner Sculpture, a new ven- 
ture was announced, Turner Wildlife 



Above left David Turner's 
son poses for a life-size 
work. Above right David 
Turner's children were 
models for "Barnyard 
Scene," featuring a girl 
and boy feeding carrots 
to a goat, pig, and 
goose. Left David Turner 
works on Black bear 
that will be eight feet 
tall. 



On a recent visit to the Turner Gallery 
and Foundry, Mrs. Frances W. Kay 
(N'59) enthusiastically agreed to wear 
pieces of the Turner Wildlife Collection 
so that alumni and others can see Dr. 
Turner's work. 

Tracks offers wildlife recipes and 
humorous accounts of life at Turner 
Sculpture such as explaining the $12,500 
price tag on the six and one-half foot 
long sculpture of an alligator. Dr. Turner 
writes that capturing and training the 
alligator to pose drove up the cost. 

The Turners and Turner Sculpture 
represent something rare in today's 
world, a family in which traditions 
have been handed down from father to 
children. In the Turner sculptures, a 



connection in bronze is made between 
nature and art. How to make that con- 
nection, the knowledge, skill, and craft 
required, is being passed from one gen- 
eration to the next. How many sculp- 
tors own their own foundries? In how 
many sculpture galleries can the roar of 
the foundry's furnace be heard and felt? 
How many 
foundries 
have resident- 
owner artists 
who explain 
the process of 
creating a life- 
size timber 
wolf in 

bronze? And 
what foundry- 
gallery has a 
dental and law 
office for the 
sons who are 
not sculptors? 
Dr. Henry 
S. Spencer 
(M'53),oneof 
Dr. Turner's first patrons, has said that 
Turner Sculpture may be the only fam- 
ily-owned, certainly the largest sculp- 
tor-owned, foundry in America where 
the artists cast their own work. 

On the Eastern Shore of Virginia the 
fish and birds not only swim in the 
creeks and the Chesapeake Bay or fly 
over the marshes and fields of cucum- 
bers, potatoes, and com, they also stand 
or hang in bronze, lifelike and life-size, 
fin and feather perfect, suspended or 
cantilevered by a bronze splash of 
the wave or by a bronze leaf or root. 

In one sculpture, an ear of corn is 
half pecked, the cob's kernels still fresh 
in bronze. In a bronze tableau, a rabbit 
is running toward his hole hidden be- 
hind a log. Both exemplify the fine 
artistry Dr. William Henry Turner (D'69) 
brings to his Eastern Shore studio and 
foundry. 

Lindsay Noltiug is a landscape artist who lives 
in Fluvanna County. Susan Robbins is a 
professor at Hampden-Sydney College and 
Randolph-Macon College.

Alumni House Land Transfer 

Agreement 



ji agreement was signed on August 
9, 1990, by Dr. Eugene P. Trani, president 
of VCU, and Dr. Fred T. Given, Jr. (M'53), 
president of the MCV Alumni Associa- 
tion of VCU, to exchange exact footprint 
land parcels at 1105 East Clay Street for 
the northwest corner of Eleventh and 
Clay Streets, directly across from the 
Wickham-Valentine House. Both Alumni 
Association and University officials have 
approved the agreement that is subject

to additional approval by the proper state 
authorities. 

The agreement stipulates that VCU 
will cause $225,000 to be contributed to 
the project at the appropriate time and 
that the University will commit the re- 
sources of its Advancement Division to 
assist in fund-raising efforts. If the cam- 
paign does not raise sufficient funds to re- 
construct the Alumni House on the new 



site within two years, in funds received or 
in firm pledges, or both, either die MCV 
Alumni Association or VCU may termi- 
nate the campaign. 

Alumni Association representatives 
have met with the preservation commu- 
nity and have employed Mr. Bristow 
Guy at the suggestion of Mr. Frederic H. 
Cox Jr., of Mar- 
cellus, Wright, 
Cox, and Smith, 
to inventory and 
evaluate the 
structural integ- 
rity of die house. 
Mr. Guy also will 
take Mr. Calder 
Loth, of the De- 
partment of His- 
toric Resources, 
of the Virginia 
Landmarks Com- 
mission on a tour 
of the house for 
photographic 
documentation. 

At a meeting 
of the Executive 
Committee of the 
Association's 
Board of Trustees 
on September 18, 
Mr. John M. 
Kudless, VCU 
vice president for 
advancement, re 

affirmed the commitment he had made 
earlier to the relocation/rebuilding of 
the Alumni House and presented an out- 
line for raising the needed monies to 
complete die project. 

Mr. Kudless and Mrs. Cheryl G. Yea- 
man, VCU executive director for devel- 
opment and director, major individual 
gifts, reported enthusiastic support for 
the Alumni House project among the 
MCV Campus deans. 



It is hoped that more detailed plans for 
the Alumni House, also known as the 
Maupin-Maury House and the War 
Memorial Building, will be available by 
the next issue of the Scarab. 

People interested in acquiring beauti- 
ful works of art for holiday gifts should 
attend the November 15 fund-raising 
exhibit for the benefit of the Alumni House

SCARAB 



D r . Trani 



By Greg Compton 



D, 



ominating the room is a semicircle 
of parlor furniture huddled around a stone 
fireplace. A desk made of fine wood juts 
out from the corner left of the entrance. 
Its polished surface gleams in between 
neatly arranged stacks of paper. Relax- 
ing in an armchair facing the fireplace is 
Dr. Eugene P. Trani, VCU's new presi- 
dent, who after only a few months al- 
ready seems comfortable in his new office. 

Until about 12 to 18 months ago Dr. 
Trani never expected to have his name 
on the door of such elegant and spacious 
accommodations. He says he was quite 
content with his job as vice president of 
academic affairs at the University of 
Wisconsin, where he was also a profes- 
sor of history at the school's Madison 
campus. But when academic headhunt- 
ers began approaching him with open- 
ings for several university presidencies, 
Dr. Trani and his wife, Lois, began con- 
sidering a move. 

For a while he was in the running for 
the president's job at the University of 
New Mexico. Fortunately, he says, he 
came in second. "They've been through 
four presidents in six years," explains Dr. 
Trani. "And Albuquerque is too far. We 
are from the East. I feel more comfort- 
able here. Richmond has class. VCU has 
class." 

The Tranis felt the best way to decide 
which opportunities they should pursue 
was to draw up a list of criteria "VCU fit 
them to a tee," says Dr. Trani. 

VCUs status as Virginia's largest urban 
university was among the items that 
matched with those on the Tranis' list. 
And when Dr. Trani discovered the re- 
sults of the recently completed Cam- 
paign for VCU, a four-year fund-raising 
effort, the scales began to tip heavily to- 
wards a move to Richmond. 

It was not just the $62 million total that 
impressed Dr. Trani. It was also the 
community allegiance represented in that 
figure. "There is so much support from 
community businesses. They believe 
the Academic and MCV Campuses are 



Anticipates 

University's 

Future 




essential to the growth of Richmond," 
says Dr. Trani. 

Still, as in most any circumstance, 
there is always room for improvement. 
Though relations between the Univer- 
sity and the communtiy are already good, 
Dr. Trani plans to make them even bet- 
ter. As Dr. Trani gets to know the Univer- 
sity, the University will continue getting 
acquainted with the community. There's 
going to be a lot of communication," 
promises Dr. Trani. 

Unclogging and maintaining fluid 
lines of communication is a mainstay in 
Dr. Trani's repertoire of abilities. While 
at the immense University of Wisconsin, 
with subsidiaries across the state, he 
learned a lot about maintaining good 
communication throughout a large insti- 
tution. He plans to use his competence in 
that area to not only continue improving 
community relations, but also to step up 
dialogue and interaction within the 
University. 

A desire for increased interaction be 
tween University entities should not, 
however, be mistaken for an effort to 
transform them into clones of one an- 



other. It is, in fart, the diversity of the two 
campuses and the various schools and 
the wide range of ethnic backgrounds 
and ages represented at VCU that ap- 
pealed to Dr. Trani. He plans to caringly 
foster that aspect of the University partly 
by making it more accessible than it al- 
ready is to potential staff, faculty, and 
students. "How accessible are we to the 
Richmond community? How accessible 
are we to 40year-old students?" he asks, 
offering a sample of the questions he 
plans to raise in order to reach that goal. 

The discovery process is part of his 
administrative philosophy. It is among 
the first steps he will take in order to 
assure that VCU continues to strive toward 
diversity and accessibility, two of his stated 
goals. The third is continued excellence. 

One area in which VCU's excellence 
can be judged is in the quality of its 
programs. "I plan to raise questions 
about programs," says Dr. Trani. Of 
course, there are several programs he 
won't have to ask about. He is already 
well aware of their excellent reputation. 
He mentions a handful of them. "We 
have superb Schools of Art and Busi- 
ness. We have a strong School of Educa- 
tion. The Trauma Center is a tremen- 
dous resource for the community and 
the nation," he says, adding that he is 
equally impressed with the Massey Cancer 
Center and the School of Pharmacy's 
strong relationship with pharmaceutical 
companies. 

Whether he has had time to pinpoint 
programs that need help, Dr. Trani did 
not say. He did, however, mention a 
VCU stigma he plans to correct "We are 
underperceived," he states. "We need a 
better sense of self. I believe we are a 
much better University than even some 
of our faculty think." 

Besides devoting a portion of his time 
to assessing VCU's strengths and weak- 
nesses, Dr. Trani will have to counter the 
effects of reduced state funding to the 
University. He has already suggested 
three plans of action to the Board of 
Visitors, all of which depend upon the 
severity of the budget cuts. 

Dr. Trani believes strongly in giving 
consistent answers to questions, no mat-

ter where, when, or by whom they are 
asked. It is something he learned to 
appreciate while researching the life of 
Woodrow Wilson. Dr. Irani, the passion- 
ate historian, who regrets having to give 
up teaching the subject for a while, speaks 
admiringly of President Wilson. "Wilson 
had high ideals and principles. He placed 
a lot of emphasis on developing trusting 
relationships by not saying different things 
to different people," he says. 

He has also been influenced by Theo- 
dore Roosevelt. He wrote his disserta- 
tion on die turn-of-the-century president. 
"Roosevelt was an activist, a man of the 
people. He got out a lot" says Dr. Irani, 
who also gets out quite a bit. 

He has already made several im- 
promptu visits to several locations across 
the University. "I've dropped in on of- 
fices. I visited a construction site," he 
points out. "I'm going to visit all the 
schools. I'm not desk-bound." 

He is not only getting to know the 
people that make today's VCU function, 
he has also become familiar with events 
that took place inside the historical struc- 
tures scattered across the University. "I 
am very conscious of our history and tra- 
dition," he assures. 

On a recent trip to London, Dr. Trani 
visited the University of London, the 
mother institution of the renowned King's 
College. He was amazed to discover that 



the Medical Col- 
lege of Virginia is 
almost as old as 
that English uni- 
versity. They were 
founded only two 
years apart. "It 
means a lot to me 
that we have been 
graduating den- 
tists for nearly 100 
years," says Dr. 
Trani. 'The MCV 
name is part of our 
history and is 
going to stay that 
way." 

Dr. Trani antici- 
pates interacting 
with a group of 
people that is 
among the Univer- 
sity's more active 
historical guardi- 
ans. "I look forward to working with the 
MCV alumni," says Dr. Trani. "They are 
part of our history and our future. lam

Board of Visitors Approves Six Community Initiatives 




(Editor's note: Greg Compton conducted his 
interview with Dr. Trani the latter part of 
July. As the Scarab was going to press, the 
new VCU president presented six initiatives 
to the Board of Visitors that are intended to 
enhance community support for the Univer- 
sity and its programs. They are presented 
here in capsule form.) 



Community Advisory Boards 

Boards will be established for both the 
MCV and Academic Campuses. Com- 
posed of representatives of various con- 
stituencies neighboring the campuses, they 
will provide a mechanism whereby the 
University can discuss with its neighbors, 
on a regular basis, common concerns and 
objectives. 

Community Assistance Program 
The VCU Foundation has been asked to 
develop a program that will provide finan- 
cial incentives to improve and enhance the 
neighborhoods adjacent to the Academic 
Campus. 

Community Service Associates This 
program will provide opportunities for faculty 
to participate in approved community as- 
sistance projects. Such projects may be 
conducted in cooperation with neighbor- 
hoods, civic associations, governmental or 



professional organizations, or other com- 
munity-based groups. 

VCU Community Athletic Recrea- 
tion Efforts (VCU CARES) This pro- 
gram will extend the use of VCU recrea- 
tional facilities to organized groups in the 
surrounding neighborhoods. 

Monroe Park VCU is committed to 
maintaining Monroe Park in partnership 
with die city. This initiative will rehabilitate 
tliis vital green space as a park for the entire 
community. 

Grace Street Task Force Tliis initia- 
tive addresses the faculty, student, and 
neighborhood concerns regarding the 
condition of Grace Street between Belvid- 
ere and Harrison Streets. The mission of 
this task force will be to make the Grace 
Street co rridor a safer, cleaner, more at- 
tractive area.

Dr. Fred T. Given, Jr., 

Heads MCV Alumni Association 



By Greg Compton 



Arte 



ter years of being a surgeon and 
faculty member at Eastern Virginia 
Medical School in Norfolk, Dr. Fred 
Given (M '53) is apparently accustomed 
to having his evenings at home inter- 
rupted. When the new president of the 
MCV Alumni Association of VCU picked 
up his phone after having just arrived 
home from afull day of surgery, he did 
not suggest re-scheduling a long-distance 
Scarab interview. Though he was tired, 
he kindly asked that the caller give him 
just enough time to shower and eat Two 
hours later he was back on the phone, 
expressing his excitement about the 
Alumni Association's future. 

Dr. Given becomes president during 
a year in which the 
Alumni Asso- 
ciation is on 




the verge of clearing some hurdles that 
have hampered its progress during the 
last several years. Association leaders 
will no longer have to spend time work- 
ing out the details of an Alumni House 
land transfer with the University. That 
transaction took place on August 9. Dr. 
Given and Alumni Association leaders 
can now focus on getting the new MCV 
Alumni House open for business. 

"We plan to build a facsimile of the old 
house," says Dr. Given. "We would re- 
ally like to get the house built and have a 
presence on campus." 

For Dr. Given a working Alumni House 
is a vital key to the usefulness of the 
Alumni Association. Without a house 
the Association cannot completely ac- 
complish its mission. 

"The goal of the Association is to sup- 
port the institution, to help the school in 
any way we can," states Dr. Given. A new 
house will provide a base from which the 
MCV Alumni Association can reach out 
to MCV Campus staff, faculty, and stu- 
dents. 

According to Dr. Given, the house 
can be a useful tool in aiding recruiting 
efforts. "Competition for good students 
is fierce. The better the students, the bet- 
ter the school. We want to tell potential 
students how good MCV is," says Dr. 
Given. 

Another long anticipated change is 
taking place during Dr. Given's year as 
president "We have gone back to a dues 
structure," he explains. 

Though the Alumni Association func- 
tioned on a dues structure for decades, in 
1979, at the request of VCU, it agreed to 
give up the dues structure and be funded 
by the University. The University's think- 
ing at that time was to focus alumni 
participation on the Annual Giving Pro- 




gram which was just being established. 
The consensus of the Alumni Associa- 
tion's Board of Trustees for years has 
been that if a dues structure could once 
again be instituted, the MCV Alumni As- 
sociation could possibly improve its fi- 
nancial condition and regain a sense of 
pride and ownership in their Association. 
The expected funds will hopefully pro- 
vide extra dollars for the Scarab, for five- 
year reunions, and other programs spon- 
sored by the Association. 

The reinstatement of a dues structure 
could not have come at a more oppor- 
tune moment, with the state's cuts in 
funding to colleges and universities. Mem- 
bership fees will have to provide a needed 
buffer for the Alumni Association. 

"I just hope it doesn't affect us too 
adversely," says Dr. Given, voicing the 
common concern among all MCV Cam- 
pus-affiliated personnel, that reduced state 



16 



SCARAB 



funding will affect the schools and all 
related organizations. "It is so impor- 
tant for alumni to support their Alumni 
Association through dues and to con- 
tinue contributing to their individual 
schools through the Annual Giving 
Program." 

Besides overseeing the initial plan- 
ning stages for the development of the 
new Alumni House and fine tuning the 
new dues structure, Dr. Given has other 
agenda to tackle. "I would like to find 
out some of the things that are bother- 
ing the students," he says. He is al- 
ready aware of one matter that is both- 
ersome to students. Every fall and 
spring when they return to start a new 
semester, students are faced with the 
prospect of going a few weeks without 
food service on the MCV Campus. "I 
want to work on that," states Dr. Given. 

His concern for students is genuine. 
It is one of the reasons he abandoned 
private medical practice and joined the 
Department of OB/Gyn at Eastern 
Virginia Medical School. 

The transition from private practice 
to a faculty position was not difficult 
because, says Dr. Given, "I enjoy being 
with young people." When he took up 
teaching at the Norfolk school, he was 
one of only five or six faculty in that 
department which has grown to be- 
tween 30 and 35 faculty. Today Dr. 
Given is director of the Division of Gyn 
Oncology. 

It took time for Eastern Virginia 
Medical School's Department of OB/ 
Gyn to multiply nearly ten-fold. Like- 
wise, it will take time for the MCV 
Alumni Association to build momen- 
tum in the development of the new 
Alumni House and the reinstatement of 
the dues structure. Says Dr. Given, "It 
won't happen in a year. We have to 
look to the future. We have to think 
positively."

Accentuate the Positive 



By Fred T. Given, Jr. (M'53) 



T. 



he MCV Alumni Association has begun its second century, and the 
Board of Trustees is anticipating rapid solutions to many of our problems. 

We have a new president of the University, Dr. Eugene Trani, who seems 
vitally interested in alumni relations and has encouraged us in our efforts to 
strengthen the MCV Alumni Association. 

Controversy is not new to our institution, but it always seems that we are 
able to not only survive, but prosper. We are alumni of the fourth largest 
health sciences center in the United States and, without question, the largest 
and only comprehensive health care complex in Virginia. Each of our schools 
on the MCV Campus has much to be proud of, as do the schools on the 
Academic Campus. 

The goal of alumni should be to help maintain this progress in every way 
we can: speak proudly of our schools, encourage outstanding students to 
apply, talk to legislators, and support our schools both financially and in any 
otherwaywecan. 

A dues structure for the Association, discontinued in 1979, has been rein- 
stated. There is no reason why we should not only become self-supportive, 
but also should increase contributions to the Annual Giving Program for the 
MCV Campus. There is a great need for alumni to begin again to have local 
meetings and increase their interest in what is happening in each school on 
our campus. 

Final agreement has been reached to exchange identical tracts of land so 
the Nelson Clinic Building can be enlarged with a new outpatient facility and 
we can begin to construct a facsimile of the Alumni House. It is unfortunate 
that the house has deteriorated to such a state that it seems unlikely that it will 
be feasible to move it across the street The plans are to save as much of the 
old house as possible. The University administration has promised to lend its 
support to the fund drive. A new house should certainly make us more visible 
to visiting alumni, faculty, and students. 

We are on the verge of a new day, a new century, a new house, and new 
interest in the Alumni Association. Lef s really accentuate the positive and get 
the job done!

"Old West" Medicine Man 
Entertains Elderhostelers 



By Greg Compton 

A man in a black cape and 
top hat appears before a 
hushed crowd. As he 
waves his cape dramati- 
cally, a dreadful mono- 
logue spills from his lips. 

"T 

-L/adies and gentlemen, you are all 
dying, every man, woman, and child. 
From the moment you are born you 
begin to die. The calendar is your execu- 
tioner. That, no man can change or ever 
hope to change. For it is nature's law that 
there is no escape from the individual 
grand finale on the grand stage of life." 

After several similarly gloomy remarks, 
the speaker pauses and asks, "Is there 
any way you can delay the inevitable?" 
Of course there is. And the caped char- 
acter knows just how. With practiced 
flair, he reveals a treasure trove of po- 
tions and elixirs guaranteed to restore 
health and fend off the breath-stealing 
clutches of the Grim Reaper. 

Sounds like the spiel of a slippery Old 
West medicine man, doesn't it? Well, it 
is, sort of. Except the crowd isn't the 
citizenry of a dusty turn-of-century prai- 
rie town. Nor is the speaker a wanderer 
with questionable credentials. The scene 
was enacted just a few months ago in an 




MCV Campus auditorium 
where the 1990 Elderhostel 
program was winding up a 
week of classes. The crowd 
consisted of senior citizens 
from across the country. The 
caped mystery man was Mr. 
Alvin T. Schalow (F61), 
immediate past president of 
the MCV Alumni Association 
ofVCU. 

The Old West medicine wagon shows 
were big events at the height of their 
popularity around the turn of the cen- 
tury. Many of them included dog and 
juggling acts and required up to 40 wag- 
ons to transport all the needed wares. 
Mr. Schalow uses the medicine wagon 
show as an illustration of how Americans 
were, and still are, susceptible to outland- 
ish promises of improved health and 
well-being doled out by entities who might 
be more interested in improving their fi- 
nancial status than improving anyone's 
health. Since he first conceived the idea 
for a Women's Pharmacy Auxiliary 
meeting several years ago, he has re- 




prised his role as the Old West 
medicine man some 50 or 60 
times. His opening words are 
part of an actual spiel used by 
renowned medicine man, P. 
T.Kelly. Mr. Schalow adds re- 
alism with an assortment of 
old elixirs and remedies he 
has collected over the years. 
Tt has grown from once or 
twice a year to six to 12 times," 
says Mr. Schalow, indicating the num- 
ber of annual requests he receives from 
organizations wanting to see the caped 
character he has created. "It's getting to 
the place where I can't accept all of them 
because of time restraints." 

But when Debbie Snyder, coordina- 
tor of the Elderhostel programs for both 
campuses, asked Mr. Schalow to do his 
show for the closing session of the 1990 
Elderhostel program, he gladly accepted. 
Elderhostels were created in 1975 by 
Marty Knowles, a social activist and 
educator, for senior citizens who wish to 
expand their intellectual horizons. Eld- 
erhostel programs abound on college 



18 



campuses and other learning institutions 
across the country and around the world. 

Mr. Schalow says he enjoys doing his 
act for senior citizens because many of 
them remember the real thing. He re- 
calls talking to a gentleman who said a 
medicine man once offered him and some 
friends five free tickets to the evening 
show if they would clean and sweep up in 
preparation for the event. 'That night 
they discovered it was a free show any- 
way," says Mr. Schalow, depicting the 
less than credible character of many an 
Old West medicine man. 

Elderhostel participants were presented 
several substances that at one time were 
supposed to have a valid medicinal pur- 
pose. Among them was the Vapo-Creco- 
lene Lantern. When lit, the lantern was 
said to kill germs. Priced at $1.50, it was 
a popular item at a time when viruses 
such as influenza produced high mortal- 
ity rates. Mr. Schalow explains that the 
active ingredient did kill germs, but adds, 
"Whether it killed germs when spread in 
the air is doubtful." Most likely, the 
magic little lantern made wishes come 
true only for the sellers, not the buyers. 

Also included in the program was a 
history of government intervention into 
the freewheeling world of the medicine 
wagon show. Until 1938 few restrictions 
hampered the distribution of products 
sold not only from the back of a medicine 
wagon but also, by that time, over the 
counter of corner drug stores across the 




SCARAB 

country. That year 100 people died 
from a toxic level of Diethylene 
Glycol, an ingredient in a j#\ 

product used to kill infec- jt // 

tions. The deaths forced the 
government to clamp down. For 
the next several decades the 
wheels of government gained mo- 
mentum and finally, in 1962, the Desi 
Review was initiated, a sweeping reform 
that had a goal of reviewing the efficacy 
of some 3,400 products. "Now we can be 
pretty well assured about over the counter 
medications," asserts Mr. Schalow. 

Some of the products examined by 
the Desi Review are still household names 
to many of the Elderhostel participants. 
A&D Ointment is one. Taken from the 
vitamins, A and D, originally present in 
the product, the name remains the same. 
But after a Desi Review once-over the vi- 
tamins were deemed inactive and are no 
longer ingredients in A&D Ointment. 
For years the makers of Listerine claimed 
their product killed germs. Just recently 
the claim was deemed inaccurate. The 
liver in Carter's Little Liver Pills was 
removed when the Desi Review discov- 
ered the substance had no effect on the 
product's efficacy as a laxative. 

Mr. Schalow adds that many prod- 
ucts which medicine men claimed would 
improve vim, vigor, and vitality, were in 
fact just laxatives. States Mr. Schalow, 
"When the medicine man said, 'You're 
going to have get up and go,' he really 
meant you're going to have to get up 
and go." 

At the end of his presentations Mr. 
Schalow always provides several min- 
utes for audience questions. He says the 
Elderhostel students had a lot of ques- 
tions. Most of them were inquiries into 
some of the remedies on today's market 
that make promises similar to those touted 
by the products of the medicine man era. 

"They asked about the effectiveness 
of calcium in treating osteoporosis," says 
Mr. Schalow. "When you're talking to 
elderly people, especially women, they 
want to feel like it helps. Once osteoporo- 
sis has taken its toll you don't really 
regain bone mass. In fact, large doses of 
calcium can be dangerous." 

They were also curious about cancer 
prevention fads. Mr. Schalow cited for 
them the recent demise of the latest 
cancer fighter, oat bran, as an example of 
how manufacturers exploit the limited 
qualities of certain substances. "It's easy 
for manufacturers to play on the cancer 



19 





Y W%#, 



preven- 
tion ploy," 
he explains. 
"There isn't an 
easy answer to it 
The fact is, it's just 
better for you to eat a 
bowl of oatmeal for NJ., : .-~. : : 

breakfast than eggs and 
bacon." J^| \ 

The questions kept coming. 
Is vitamin C good for colds? Are 
herbal remedies valid? According " 
to Mr. Schalow, Vitamin C doesn't re- 
ally prevent colds and can cause other 
problems if too much is ingested. He 
also adds that while herbal remedies 
may be good for certain ailments, it is 
questionable whether they are adequate 
for many of the maladies they are said to 
improve. 

Someone asks about the mythical 
qualities of Vitamin E. Does it really im- 
prove one's sex life? Mr. Schalow re- 
sponds that the vitamin is also supposed 
to clear up acne. He jokingly adds that it 
has only done one of those things for him. 
"As you can see I don't have any acne." 

As the questions die down, Mr. Scha- 
low feels satisfied. He has done his job. 
Elderhostel students have laughed a little 
and learned a lot To the sound of approv- 
ing applause he carefully packs away his 
collection of potions and elixirs. The cape 
and top hat are also put away and will not 
be seen again until the next time Alvin T 
Schalow, pharmacist, is called upon to 
become the colorful medicine man from 
the Old West

Alumnus Helps Build 
Habitats for Humanity

D, 



Dr. Wes Bemhart (M'53) pauses from 
his work with Habitat for Humanity. 



r. Wesley C. Bernhart (M'53) was 
in Richmond in August, working for the 
second year with the Richmond Chapter 
of Habitat for Humanity to construct new 
housing for qualified applicants. 

The program, made famous by for- 
mer President Jimmy Carter's connec- 
tion with it often enables people to buy a 
new home of their own, interest free, for 
less than they have been paying for in- 
adequate rental housing. 

A member of a group of people from 
Ravensworth Baptist Church in Annan- 
dale, Virginia, Dr. Bernhart told Channel 
12 TV last year that he "wanted to be part 
of the group from our church that was 
doing something for someone else that 
was worthwhile." 

He continues, "The camaraderie that 
develops between friends and strangers 
as they work together toward a common 
goal, the jokes, the laughs, the goofs, are 
also part of that answer. In the end, as we 
look at our effort and realize that we have 
built a house from the floor to the roof 
and, best of all, that someone is going to 
enjoy better housing than they have been 
able to afford before, the real satisfaction 
sets in." 

Dr. Bernhart notes the support from 
the Richmond church community, "Union 
Theological Seminary houses us in stu- 
dent dorms; and local churches take turns 
preparing our breakfast, bringing lunch 
to the job, and arranging for dinner. Each 
morning we gather at the work site for a 
devotional led by a local church. This 
helps keep us focused on the One who is 
really behind our efforts." 

Retired from family practice for four 
years, Dr. Bernhart is chairman of the 
Medical Division of the MCV Alumni 
Association and a member of the Medi- 
cal School Advisory Council. At the "ten- 
der" age of 70, he says, "It is still possible 
to be impressed with the goodness that is 
in the world in spite of so much that 
invites cynicism ... it is time to stop 
preaching."

MCV Foundation Commits 
Over $1.7 Million 
for MCV Campus 



R s 



sstricted allocations from the MCV 
Foundation to MCV Campus schools 
and MCV Hospitals for fiscal 1989-90 
totaled almost $1.1 million, with approxi- 
mately $62,388 of this designated for 
disease-related research. The remain- 
der of the alloca- 
tions, almost 
$600,000, came 
from unrestricted 
funds, with the 
majority of these 
being used to en- 
hance student and 
faculty excellence. 

Awards from 
disease-related 
funds supported the 
work of 14 princi- 
pal investigators. 
Projects ranged 
from that of Dr. 
Hanns-Dieter Gru- 
mer, pathology, 
who looked at ac- 
cumulations of a 
specific protein in 
the brain and its pos- 
sible relationship to

cal engineering, use of the foundation

involvement in juvenile rheumatoid ar- 
thritis, problems associated with aging, 
the effects of alcohol on fetal transport 
sites, and the study of commonly used 
drugs to have a better understanding of 
their effectiveness. 

Many laboratories, such as those delv- 
ing into the causes of cancer and infec- 
tious diseases, studying the immune 
system, or doing neurosurgical research, 
also were funded from restricted funds. 



The largest allocation from unrestricted 
funds was made for a campus-wide proj- 
ect. The $60,000 augmented a gift re- 
ceived from the Theresa A. Thomas 
Foundation during the Campaign for VCU. 
These funds are being used to transform 
the television studio 
in the Lyons Build- 
ing into an "elec- 
tronic classroom." 
This facility's expan- 
sion will allow for the 
provision of more 
educational, interac- 
tive television work- 
shops to health care 
professionals 
throughout the state. 
The MCV Foun- 
dation also supple- 
mented a National 
Science Foundation 
award of $30,357 for 
the purchase of a 
Preparative High 
Performance Liquid 
Chromatography 
System for biochem- 
istry. 

Other projects in- 
cluded the refurbish- 
ing of the executive 
conference room in the School of Den- 
tistry and, in honor of its centennial, the 
establishment of a pictorial history of the 
school since its founding in 1893. 

An Office of Applied Research in den- 
tistry was also established with assis- 
tance of foundation funds to coordinate

research activities with industry. Dr. 
John Gunsolley, assistant professor of 
periodontics, heads the office. 

An MCV Foundation award also helped 
purchase a Fast Protein Liquid Chroma- 
tography System in radiation oncology. 
An additional grant assisted the phar- 
macy school in its efforts to set up clinical 
teaching sites at two Richmond hospi- 
tals, and student stipends were provided 
in the Schools of Nursing and Allied 
Health Professions. 

Other foundation funds went to proj- 
ects such as a one-year pilot for the 
National Center for Nursing Research 



of awards to students whose research is 
judged to be of exceptional merit. The 
graduate students themselves decide who 
to invite as the speaker at the accompa- 
nying Forbes Day Lecture, which is sup- 
ported by the foundation. 

Awards from the MCV Foundation 
were used to support two events in the 
Department of Urology: the annual R.

Campaign for VCU 
Surpasses Goal 

The Campaign for VCU topped S62 million 
on June 30, successfully bringing to a close 
the University's first comprehensive fund- 
raising campaign. The final total of $62,052,000 
greatly exceeded the minimum goal of $52 
million. 

Alumni surpassed their goal by a signifi- 
cant margin, and the Physicians Campaign 
exceeded its goal with more than $5 million 
raised. Approximately two-thirds of all gifts 
were designated by the donors for needs on 
the MCV Campus. 

Of particular interest to MCV Campus 
alumni are the following contributions: 

Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Gumenick made 
the largest single gift to the Campaign, 
$1,050,000 to establish the Sophia and Nathan 
Gumenick Suites in MCV Hospitals to pro- 
vide home-like surroundings within the 
hospital. 

The late Mrs. Evelyn Thomas made gifts 
totaling over $2 million during the Cam- 
paign. She and her late husband. Dr. Charles 
W. Thomas (M'03) are the University's larg- 
est contributors, with total support of ap- 
proximately $4 million. They primarily con- 
tributed to the Division of Rheumatology, 
Allergy, and Immunology. 

The Theresa Thomas Foundation do- 
nated $1 million, the largest contribution 
from a foundation, to create a scholarship 
program for nurses and other health practi- 
tioners as well as educational resource cen- 
ters in hospitals located in underserved 
communities. 

The Richard S. Reynolds Foundation has 
expressed its intention to give the MCV 
Foundation $1 million over the next five 
years to create the Richard Roland Reynolds 
Chair in the Division of Neurology.
