Tape of an interview with Lockie, conducted by Brenda K. Shelton, November 14, 1978. Concerns his education at UB and his medical career; focuses on his research of arthritis. UB Medical School as it relates to Buffalo medical community is discussed.
Overview: L. Maxwell Lockie studied pharmacy and medicine at the University of Buffalo, subsequently establishing a practice in the Buffalo area with a specialty in arthritis. From 1939-1965 Dr. Lockie also headed the University of Buffalo's department of therapeutics. He remained on the faculty of the University until 1969. In this interview Dr. Lockie talks about his education at the University of Buffalo and his lengthy medical career. Much of the interview focuses on the study of arthritis and Dr. Lockie's research in that area. The University of Buffalo Medical School is also discussed, particularly with regard to its relationship to the medical community in Buffalo.
Interviewer's Observations: The interview took place in Dr. Lockie's small study at the top of the apartment building where he lives. He keeps all the records of his personal and medical career there: the many articles he has written, the speeches he has given, newspaper articles about him, the numerous awards he has received, photographs, scrapbooks full of miscellaneous mementos, etc., and he showed most of them to me before the interview began. I suspect that his comments in the interview were a potpourri of speeches he has delivered in the past. When I asked him unanticipated questions, he was thrown off stride, and a couple of times asked that I turn off the tape while he gathered his thoughts.
