History

Franklin E. Walton was a surgeon and instructor who spent nearly all of his 43 years in medicine at Washington University School of Medicine. Born in Medora, IL in 1902, he was educated at Missouri Military Academy and Shurtleff College prior to receiving his M.D. from Washington University in 1927. Walton spent his internship and surgical residency at Barnes Hospital from 1927 to 1933, serving as one of the early resident physicians for Evarts Graham. When Walton was certified by the American College of Surgeons in 1937, there were only 46 certified surgeons in the United States. Except for a brief stint as the first visiting resident at Yale-New Haven Medical Center, Walton spent the remainder of his career at Washington University School of Medicine in a variety of positions including assistant professor of clinical surgery and assistant dean. In addition, he served in Africa during WWII, reaching the rank of colonel and chief of the surgical service for the 21st General Hospital. Walton retired in 1970 and passed away at the age of 78 from a heart ailment on February 4, 1981.
