Ambassador of Egypt

Some very important people attended the 40th Anniversary of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine/Baptist Medical Center and the dedication of its two newest buildings in September 1981. Vice President of the United States, George Bush, Sr.; Mr. Gordon Gray, the last living member of the Gray family committee which made available funds from his father’s estate to bring the medical school to Winston-Salem in 1941; and Dr. Ahmed Esmat Abdel Meguid, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the United Nations. The relationship between the Bowman Gray School of Medicine and Cairo University are the clinical and research exchange between the two institutions. Egyptian physicians were able to study at Bowman Gray as part of a technical transfer program sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Shown here are (R) Dean of the Medical School, Richard Janeway and (L) Ambassador Meguid.
