Wagner retired from the Medical Center in December 2007. The School of Cytotechnology at North Carolina Baptist Hospital and Bowman Gray School of Medicine opened in July 1959. In 1952, Dr. Zelma A. Kalnins, an immigrant from Latvia, came to Bowman Gray and began to study pathology and cytology under Drs. Coy Carpenter and Robert Morehead. The Board of Schools of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists recommended in 1958 for a school to be opened here.
