11 Others Appointed Harold Quinn Named As Chairman of CMMC The Shreveport Times Sat., August 12, 1972 By Margaret Martin Of The Times Staff Shreveport insurance execu-tive Harold K. Quinn yesterday, 545 Lloyd Lane, was named by Gov. Edwin W. Edwards as chairman of the new Confeder-ate Memorial Medical Center board. He replaces T. B. Lanford, who has held the post since 1956. The governor also named 11 other board members, but left one position vacant. The mem-bers include three reappoint-ments, three blacks and one woman. Among those going off the board is Tony A. Pernici, vice chairman. The three blacks named are R a l p h R. Hall, 116 Piano, counselor for men at Southern University at Shreveport; the Rev. Abraham E. Davis, paster of St. Paul United Methodist Church, and Wilbur T. Purvis of Mansfield. Lone Woman Named The lone woman named is Anna Laurie Wilder of Homer. She replaces long-time member Dr. S. A. Tatum. Others r e n a m e d are Dr. James W. Tucker, 4710 Gilbert Drive, Shreveport; Dr. Jackie D. Huckaby of Coushatta and Jack Clayton of Haughton, who will be "retained indefinitely," with no explanation by the governor as to what the phrase means. Other new members are Dr. J. Dudley Talbot, 2748 Virginia Ave., Dr. W. J. Hill Jr., 6908 East Ridge Drive, Dr. Bernard M. K a l s t o n e , 6005 Southern Ave., all of Shreveport, and Andre Joyce of Minden. There is one spot yet to be filled, that of Dr. Aaron E. Ussery of Arcadia, who resigned from the board some time ago. This the Bienville Parish ap-pointment. The other old board members and their replacements follow: T. A. Pernici, replaced by Tal-bot; Dr. Andrew J. Mullen, replaced by Hill; Gen. John S. Hardy, replaced by Kalstone; Dr. Charles L. Black, replaced by the Rev. Mr. Davis; W. H. Thompson of Minden, replaced by Joyce; Roger H Silver of Mansfield, replaced by Purvis Hall took the spot formerly held by Dr. George J. Woolhandler, who died last year. There was no official com-ment as to whether Dr. Edgar Galloway, hospital director, will remain in that post or be asked to resign. A spokesman for the governor said Edwards will not recommend anyone to succeed Galloway if the new board does ask him to resign, meaning the board would make the appoint-ment. Quinn would not comment as to whether the board will keep Galloway or not. "I don't know what changes in personnel we will take," he said. "We haven't met. Galloway, 78, has been direc-tor of Co n f e d e r a t e and its predecessor since 1940, except for short periods of time. He has refused to talk about whether he plans to resign or stay, saying "I can't comment on what might happen in the future." Speculation is that he will stay, if asked to. Dr. Charles Black, assistant dean of LSU Medical School at Shreveport, who was not reap-pointed to his position on the board, has been mentioned as a possible successor to Galloway, but because of his position with the medical school, it is doubtful that he could serve. Others suggested as possible heads for the institution are Dr. Marion Hargrove, also an as-sistant dean at the medical school and head of the Depart-ment of Medicine at Confedrate, and Dr. Ike Muslow, a former head of the Department of Medicine at Confederate. In an interview, Quinn said, "The primary objective of the board is to insist that the level of patient care be very, very high and, too, we want to be sure we are responsive to the needs of the community." The new board chairman said "Confederate can be one of the greatest hospitals in the world because of the medical school.' He also complimented the visiting staff — composed most-ly of area doctors in private practice — saying, "Some of the finest minds in medicine are on the visiting staff."
