The Dr. William T. Hill Lecture Series
William T. Hill, M.D., graduated from the University of Arkansas, School of Medicine. He was an intern at Pierce County Hospital, Tacoma, Washington, and following a residency in pathology at the University of Arkansas, he became an Instructor in Pathology there. He then trained as a fellow in pathology at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, under the tutelage of Lauren Ackerman, M.D., and worked as an Assistant Professor of Pathology at Columbia University, Medical School, New York City, under the direction of Arthur P. Stout, M.D. In 1958 Dr. Hill settled in Houston, became an Associate Pathologist at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital, and in 1960 joined the clinical faculty of the Department of Pathology, Baylor College of Medicine. In 1961, he started a private practice and headed a highly respected pathology group for over 30 years.
Dr. Hill was been deeply involved in the institutional aspects of pathology at both state and national levels and his memberships included the College of American Pathologists, the International Academy of Pathology, and the Arthur Purdy Stout Society, of which he was a founding member. His numerous administrative responsibilities included the Trustees of the Houston Academy of Medicine and of the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, of which he was also a founding member, the presidency of the Houston Society of Clinical Pathologists, and many others. For many years Dr. Hill devoted a good deal of effort to stimulate intellectual cross-fertilization between academic and community pathologists, and to provide a stimulus for the local residents in pathology. It is with this commitment in mind that he and his family have provided a generous endowment to the Department of Pathology at Baylor to make possible the Dr. William T. Hill Lecture Series.
