Dean C.C. Bass

Charles Cassidy Bass, M.D. (1875-1975) was Dean of the Tulane Medical School from 1922 to 1940. He was a scientist, physician, and teacher, renowned for his research in the microorganisms of tropical diseases, especially hookworm and malaria, and for the design and promotion of an effective method of personal oral hygiene. He came from a prominent medical family in Mississippi. Two of his sisters were also physicians: Mary Elizabeth Bass and Cora Bass. The bronze doors were mounted in the library in his honor and memory in 1981 through the generosity of his daughters Juanita Bass Trumbo (Mrs. Donald), Ernestine Bass Hopkins (Mrs. James W.), and Corinne Bass.
