description:

The medical and dental schools pooled resources together to create a memorial fund in honor of Captain Robert C. Badertscher, MD 1940, a flight surgeon who lost his life in an American Air Force bomber crash in South America. The money from this fund was made into an educational war bond. It was presented by the medical students, many of whom had studied under Badertscher's father, Jacob A. Badertshcher, on the Indianapolis campus to Badertscher's nine month old daughter Barbara Ann.
