Curt Ingraham Civin '70
Doctor of Science
A combination of research skills and intense concern for the quality of young lives led you to the field of pediatric oncology. As director of that department and the holder of the King Fahd Professorship at Johns Hopkins University Medical School, you have continued your own research, while also teaching small groups of medical and postdoctoral students. Meanwhile, caring for patients continues to be a source of satisfaction, a valued stimulus and a reality check.
As Amherst honors youa member of the great Class of 1970we
can claim credit only for the liberal arts part of your education and for equipping
you, as you once put it, with "most of the basic science" that enabled
you to survive (as you said) the rudimentary "trade school" education
you encountered at Harvard Medical School.
