Victor Clarence Vaughan
"Working in Dr. Victor Vaughan's laboratories, directed by him, in personal contact with him and his students, was more than a mere scientific experience of great value. The influence of that remarkable personality cannot be calculated. The busiest man on the campus, yet never hurried, lecturing at the College of Arts, as well as in the Medical School, looking into the face of each student present till each felt the personal appeal, he also attended to a considerable private practice, yet that equanimity was never disturbed. AND WHAT HE TAUGHT - indelible and incomparable. Such a man! If only our children could always have even one such fine figure to steer by."
Dr. Emily Chenault Runyon
"...the pioneer woman physician in Virginia"
