About the Grahams
Dr. Allan L. Graham received a degree in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois in 1954 and an MD from the College of Medicine in 1960. His wife, Mary, received her BS in 1957. Dr. Graham was a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon and practiced in Texas from 1968 until his retirement in 1994. The Grahams’ gift to support the Clinical Performance Center is a reflection of their values. Dr. Graham explains, “We are from the old school, the kind of people who believe in hard work and in giving something back. I owe something to medicine.” In recognition of their generosity, we were proud to dedicate the Dr. Allan L. and Mary L. Graham Clinical Performance Center on January 22, 2009. The dedication celebrated the renovations that have been made as well as the center’s new identity: Dr. Allan L. and Mary L. Graham Clinical Performance Center.
