expand icon Biographical/Historical Note
Dr. Carl A. Moyer was the Head of the Surgery Department at Washington University School of Medicine from 1951-1965.  Dr. Moyer made important contributions to the understanding of blood volume regulation and to the treatment of thermal injury with silver nitrate. This interest led him to establish a Burn Unit at Barnes Hospital in 1964. Deeply concerned about patient care, surgical training, and medical education, he supported the training of minority physicians at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis. In 1963, the National Medical Association recognized his contribution with the award of the W. H. Sinkler Memorial Medal. Former house officers long remembered his interest in their development and the generous style of his teaching.
