A Life of Leadership
Edward Cuyler Hammond was born in Baltimore, Maryland on June 14, 1912. While excelling at math and science as a boy, Hammond grew particularly interested in biology and cancer. Hammond, once a smoker, initially doubted a link between cigarettes and disease, yet took a stand against big tobacco once he discovered a correlation between the two. Across the medical field, Hammond was known for his dedication to improving and raising awareness for public health.
