KU radiologist gives $250,000 for professorship
A Kansas University radiology professor and his wife
have committed $250,000 for a new professorship in radiology at the KU Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan.
Norman Martin, endowment distinguished professor and Chancellor's Club teaching professor of diagnostic radiology, and his wife, Shirley, have endowed the Norman Martin distinguished teaching professorship in radiology with a gift of life insurance.
The Martins live in Prairie Village.
The fund first will be used to support a radiology faculty member who has the primary responsibility for the radiology department's teaching of medical students and residents. Among other things, the fund will provide a supplement to the faculty member's salary and will support supplies needed for teaching.
Martin has been a member of the KU medical faculty since 1970. In 1996 he was named a W.T. Kemper Fellow for Teaching Excellence.
