MEDIC'S PICTURE GIVEN HOSPITAL Scholarship Is Also Pre-sented to Charity TP 3-2-67 A portrait of the late Dr. Leo J. Kerne, director of Charity Hospital from 1956 to 1965, and a scholarship in his honor have been presented to the hospital. Dr. Don L. Peterson, vice-chairman of the board of ad-ministrators of Charity Hospital, welcomed those gathered in the hospital auditorium pointing out that many of them had worked closely with Dr. Kerne during his nine years as director of "this great institution." Dr. Edgar Hull, professor of medicine at LSU and Dr. Kerne's family physician, de-scribed the late director as a-man who "was absolutely in-tolerant of waste and inef-ficiency, of bickering and self-seeking, of ethical cornercut-ting; but . . .patient." Dr. Kerne was a man interested in peace but also in progress which for him was better pa-tient care, Hull said. Miss Margot Kerne then un-veiled the portrait of her father which was painted by John Clay Porter. Dr. Gilbert C. Tomskey, mem-ber of the hospital's board of administrators, presented the Leo J. Kerne Memorial Schol-arship to the director of the Charity Hospital School of Nurs-area, where Dr. Kerne grew up, would be the recipient of the award which covers the first year's tuition and fees. Both the portrait and th scholarship fund were made possible by donation to the hos-pital "in memory of Dr. Kerne," he pointed out. Sister Blanche reminded of the "scholarship which Dr. Kerne bestowed day by day in his generous decisions" and said that "nursing education is scholarship in every sense of the word." She expressed thanks for the scholarship and for.d memories of Dr. Kerne. Mrs. Leo Kerne said, "On be-half of my family I thank you for honoring the memory of my husband."
