College celebrated its Centennial during the annual meeting in the
historic city of Boston, the event was marked by the largest
meeting attendance ever in the history of the college.
I would invite you to celebrate ACP's Centennial by exploring an
online timeline featuring historical facts, images, and anecdotes
about the organization in a decade-by-decade format. Plus, watch a

When I look at you I try not to think
about my grandfather
Arnie, he was your age
yet I can't help but wonder if you
had his same wink or wit
had his same love of coffee, children, or the symphony.
When I look at you
I try not to think about
lying as you do
cold and chemical-soaked
but exposed as you are,
you are also adored
in the unique way
reserved for the dead.
I wish I knew more about you
so that I wouldn't think about Dick,
my sister-in-law's dad
who fell and hit his head
and never woke up.
He wanted to donate his organs
but the heart-lung death ruined them
at 6 foot 7
he was simply too big.
When she married my brother this summer
her very tall brothers walked her
down the aisle
and sat next to two empty chairs-one
for Dick, and one for her mother
long ago from cancer.
So no, I don't want to think about
anyone else when I'm in here.
I'd rather think about you
but I need more information.
Did you like fiction?
You could be a the star character
in my medical school drama:
a stoic rancher, 4th generation in this valley,
a loving husband, devoted for 63 years,
or a former professor,
still teaching even now.
Or maybe just what you are-
A man with a gift,
my cadaver guide.
I will try to honor you as I honor
who are always with me.
You will enjoy our little troupe, I think,
maybe as much
as you enjoyed
the sun rising
over the mountains
and the crisp air
of a perfect fall day
back in the great wide past.
