Historical or Biographical Note

Vernon H. Reynolds, M.D., arrived at Vanderbilt University to study pre-medicine in 1944, but was drafted into the U.S. Army and spent the next four years as a 1st Lieutenant in the Signal Corps from 1946-1949.

Reynolds returned to Vanderbilt in 1950 to finish his undergraduate education, and he also graduated from Vanderbilt Medical School 1955. Dr. Reynolds served a residency at the Peter Brent Brigham Hospital in Boston, and then served another for surgical oncology at Boston's Children's Hospital.

Reynolds joined the Vanderbilt medical faculty in 1962. He started the Division of Surgical Oncology at Vanderbilt and was chief of that division until his semi-retirement. A medical oncology program started by Reynolds became the genesis for the current Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center. Upon his full retirement, Dr. Reynolds was honored with the title professor emeritus of surgery.
