I am a mid-20th century physician who worked for The Permanente Medical Group, Inc, at the San Jose Medical Center for 27 years until 2003. I was Chief of Urology for most of that time. Subsequently I worked part time as a Urologist at the VA Medical Center in Fargo, ND, and finally fully retired about two years ago. I never thought I would be old enough to call something “mid-20th century.”
Among other things I currently volunteer at the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor, WA helping restore the early 20th century purse seiner “Shenandoah” and return her to her former self.
