Roy R. Peterson was a professor emeritus of anatomy at Washington University School of Medicine. He joined the School of Medicine in 1952 as an anatomy instructor and taught in the department until his retirement in 1988. He was named an Alumni Teaching Scholar and awarded Teacher of the Year from the senior class in 1973, 1976, 1980 and 1985. Peterson became director of the division of gross anatomy in 1974. Due to his long service to the medical school, the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology now gives an award in Peterson’s honor annually to a first-year medical student for outstanding achievement in the Human Anatomy course.

Peterson earned a bachelor’s degree in 1948 and a doctorate in 1952 from the University of Kansas, where he also served as an assistant instructor in zoology, a research assistant and a research fellow. He studied at The Anatomy School at Cambridge University in England and was a U.S. Public Health Service Special Research Fellow in Anatomy in 1960.
