Dr. Noland Honored.—
At a reunion of the medical staff of the Employees Hospital (Fairfield) of the Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Company in Birmingham, May 16, more than half of the 248 interns who have worked with Dr. Lloyd Noland, Birmingham, at the hospital returned to pay him honor on completion of thirty-four years' service with the company. Part of the ceremony was in the nature of a surprise party in that Dr. Noland's six brothers and sisters, who had not been together for many years, were present. A book was presented to him, also as a surprise, containing a list of the interns and staff members with whom he had served throughout the years, and a number of medical papers published for the first time by eminent authorities. The book, which also contained a biography, had been prepared by a committee headed by Drs. E. Bryce Robinson Jr., Hillary H. Henderson Jr., Wallace A. Clyde and Russell G. Hightower, all of Fairfield. Dr. Noland came to Birmingham from the Panama Canal Zone, where he had been an assistant to General William C. Gorgas. He founded the three and half million dollar Tennessee Coal and Iron hospital. His experience in the tropics has enabled him to reduce greatly the number of cases of malaria among the company's employees.
