    Biographical Information expand/collapseExpand/collapse

    Wilburt Cornell Davison, the son of a Methodist minister, was born on April 28, 1892 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He received the A.B. degree from Princeton University in 1913, attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar from 1913-1916, and was a senior instructor in Magdalen College from 1915-1917. He received a B.A. degree from Oxford University in 1915, the B.S. degree in 1916 and a M.A. in 1919. In 1917, he received the M.D. degree from Johns Hopkins University. From 1914 to 1919, Davison served with the American Red Cross in France and Serbia and as captain in the A.E.F. Medical Corps. Following graduate training in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins, Davison served from 1919-1927 as an instructor, associate professor, acting head of the pediatrics department and assistant dean of the Johns Hopkins Medical School. In 1926, Duke University president William Preston Few recruited Davison away from Johns Hopkins University. Davison's charge was to plan organize, build, and direct the new Duke University School of Medicine and Medical Center. Davison brought with him a new approach to health care and health education to Duke University; he founded the medical school and medical center with young, unproven faculty and flexible educational policies. Being a generalist, Davison believed in nurturing a small department of versatile pediatricians, sending them into the community to practice, and using them to teach the medical students. President Few had at one time told Davison tomake your own policies and when you get in trouble, let me know and I shall help you. The confidence between Few and Davison contributed to the vitality of the medical school-university relationship. Davison was so effective in both education and clinical management that within five years of its founding, Duke University was considered to be in the top ten percent of medical centers in the United States. As a result of his extensive administrative experience, Davison had concluded that there was a need for more efficient management in hospitals. In 1933, he inaugurated a formal program for the training of efficient hospital administrators. In this he anticipated the community hospital development programs being launched by the Duke Endowment in North Carolina and South Carolina and by the Hill Burton program throughout the United States--both programs required trained administrators with a comprehensive understanding of hospital and health field operations. One of Davison's lasting marks on the process of health care treatment would be the concept of prepayment for services. Sensitive to the public and hospital problem of financing hospital care, he advocated for methods of prepayment as early as 1928. Unfortunately, due to the stock market crash of 1929, his early efforts were not successful. Had early efforts been successful, the Durham Hospital Association would have been the first prepaid voluntary hospital service plan in the United States. Nevertheless, as a result of his efforts, two of the earliest Blue Cross plans in the nation were established in North Carolina; one in 1932 and one in 1935. This pioneering work of Davison's contributed to the beginnings of the national Blue Cross program. Davison authored Pediatric Notes (1925), Enzymes (1926), and The Compleat Pediatrician (eight editions from 1934-1961 and a Japanese translation in 1951). He was a member of the editorial board of many journals includingNew Physician,Quarterly Review of Pediatrics,Pediatrics Board of Health,andChild Family Digest,and also wrote over 250 articles for scientific journals. Davison received honorary degrees from Wake Forest University (D.Sc., 1932) and the University of North Carolina (Ll.D., 1944). He married Atala Thayer Scudder, also a physician. The Davisons kept homes in Roaring Gap, N.C., and in Florida. Wilburt C. Davison died of leukemia in 1972.
