Biographical Note

Wilburt Cornell Davison, was born on April 28, 1892, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to William L. Davison, D.D., and Mattie E. Cornell Davison. Davison grew up on Long Island, New York. He received an AB degree from Princeton University in 1913, a BA degree from Oxford University in 1915, a BS degree from Oxford University in 1916, a MD degree from John Hopkins University in 1917, and a MA from Oxford University in 1919. Davison attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar from 1913 to 1916, and he was a senior instructor in Magdalen College from 1915 to 1917. 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, Davison served from 1919 to 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; 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 to make 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 Davison's extensive administrative experience, he 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 is 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 to 1961 and a Japanese translation in 1951). He was a member of the editorial board of many journals including "New Physician," "Quarterly Review of Pediatrics," "Pediatrics Board of Health," and "Child Family Digest," as well as writing over 250 articles for scientific journals.

Davison received honorary degrees from Wake Forest University (DSc, 1932) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Ll.D., 1944).

He married Atala Thayer Scudder, also a physician, in 1917. They had three children. Davison died of leukemia on June 26, 1972.
