The legacy of James Edgar Paullin, M.D.

Author information

Internal Medicine Residency Program, Georgia Baptist Medical Center, Atlanta 30312.


The legacy of the man lives on, years after his death. Physicians from his own hospital have held and will hold his former posts as president of the AMA and the American College of Physicians (Harrison Rogers and Nick Davies, respectively). Organizations that he helped start, the Southeastern Clinical Society and the Atlanta Clinical Society, continue to thrive. His high standards of medical care continue from a grandson-in-law (David Watson) and great-grandson (Brooks Lide). To quote from Dr. R. Hugh Wood's letter in 1951: "From the life of Dr. Paullin one may learn to better serve his profession and his country. Possessed of a keen intelligence, he took full advantage of his exceptional educational opportunities, and with vigor and persistence he lived a full life of service as physician, teacher, citizen, and friend."
