Description Transcript (34 pages) of interview by Anne Peterson with Marion Lavelle Walker on September 9, 2011
Abstract Dr. Walker was born in Columbia, Mississippi, in 1942. Most of his time growing up was spent in Clinton due to the moves necessitated by his father's military obligations. He was a very good student in high school as well as an athlete, receiving a scholarship to play at BYU. He played fullback at BYU and undertook studying pre-med. Once he returned from his LDS Church mission he dedicated most of his time to his studies rather than football because he knew he wanted to be a physician. Later at the University of Tennessee medical school he became excited about neurology. He finished his residency in Phoenix, then joined the faculty at Primary Children's Hospital in 1976 as a pediatric neurologist. He later came back to the University of Utah as a full-time faculty member in 1981. He was Division Chief for twenty eight years and served as chairman of the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery. Currently he is serving as chairman of the accreditation council for the ABPNS. University of Utah Project. Interviewer: Anne Peterson
