In a ceremony in the Beaumont Room on May 27, Lycurgus M. Davey, M.D. ’43, HS ’52, was honored with the Peter Parker Medal for his service to medicine, the university and the medical school. “Dr. Davey’s dedication to the Yale School of Medicine and his profession continues to this day,” said then-Dean David A. Kessler, M.D. During his career Davey has won honors from medical organizations, published articles on neurosurgery and the history of medicine and served as a medical officer in the U.S. Navy during World War II. While president of the Association of Yale Alumni in Medicine, Davey, 85, reached out to graduates beyond the East Coast to bring them into the fold. Davey thanked those assembled by paraphrasing the poet Robert Burns. “It is a gift to see ourselves as others see us,” Davey said, adding that “a person is truly a composite of all the influences of a lifetime.”
