Fier Negro Doctor See more
Dr. Roscoe C. Giles, negro, took up his duties as junior physician at the municipal tuberculosis sanitarium yesterday and was fired six hours later. Dr. C. P. Caldwell, president of the directors, did the firing after he had made an unsuccessful attempt to convince the negro physician that he should resign. "You take a cold-blooded scientific view. You don't take the doctor's view who has the good of the patients at heart," Dr. Caldwell told him. A poll of the 700 patients showed that less than five were willing to be attended by the negro.
