Exactly. And during the era he was establishing his career that was not easy for someone from rural Louisiana.

Hmmmm.... Can't believe anyone other than Austin wants to take a stab at this. The man was a pioneer in more ways than one.

Debackey or something like that. I'm pretty sure the family Americanized the name when they came over from where ever.

Post up a new one there Sides.

You're close enough on the name. Dr. Michael E. Debakey. The Veterans medical center in Houston is named after him (among other institutions) the Dr. Michael E. Debakey Veterans Medical Center. He continued to practice all the way to his death at 100. He was of Mediteranian extract and I personally believe Klinger was made a Lebanese character out of recognition to him. Doing this on my iPhone so I'll post links tomorrow. And I'll come up with something new.
