A Duke Neurosurgery Tradition Returns
Beginning in the 1950s, when neurosurgeons finished their training at Duke they became members of a group known as the OWL Society (Odom Woodhall Legion), named in honor of two founding fathers of Duke's neurosurgery program -- Guy Odom, MD, and Barnes Woodhall, MD. Membership perks included regular meetings and get-togethers and an OWL Society lapel pin.
Eventually, the tradition faded, but today Duke Neurosurgery Chair Gerald Grant, MD, is officially bringing back this society to celebrate Duke Neurosurgery’s legacy, including the more recent past leaders, Drs. Robert Wilkins, Allan Friedman, and John Sampson.
