Dr. Orville J. Stone (pictured here), the honoree of this endowment, graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1953 and from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine in 1956. He was a successful dermatologist in southern California and a former Head of the Dermatology Department at the University of California Irvine Medical Center. Dr. Stone passed away in 1992. The Dr. Orville J. Stone Professorship in Dermatology was made possible from an annonymous donor in honor of the dedication of Dr. Stone to academic dermatology and it will provide critical resources to support the scholarly, research and teaching needs of the faculty of dermatology. Dr. Lawrence S. Chan, Head of the Department of Dermatology, was the inaugural recipient of this endowment fund.
