Thomas H. Burford (1909-1977) received his M.D. degree from Yale University in 1936. After serving his internship at Barnes Hospital under Evarts A. Graham, Burford entered the U.S. Army Medical Corps. During World War II, he headed the 2nd Auxiliary Surgical Group in North Africa. After the war, he joined Washington University’s Division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, and succeeded Graham as division head in 1951.
