RIP MAVIS P. KELSEY SR., MD

On March 11, 1938, just two years after graduating from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, a young Mavis Kelsey, MD, joined the Texas Medical Association. He maintained his TMA membership over an amazing 75-year career in Houston medicine. The health care innovator, flight surgeon, and Mayo Clinic-trained internist died last week at the age of 101. In 1951, he founded the Kelsey Seybold Clinic with Bill Seybold, MD; his brother John Kelsey, MD; and others. I am pleased that the clinic continues Dr. Kelsey’s tradition in organized medicine with 100-percent membership in TMA and the Harris County Medical Society. Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
