Thomas B. Turner, 1902-2002
Thomas Bourne Turner, a centenarian whose tenure as dean of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine for more than a decade led to its unprecedented expansion, died on Sept. 22 at the townhouse he had occupied for almost 60 years in Baltimore's Bolton Hill. He celebrated his 100th birthday on Jan. 28.

Cranbrook curator to take helm of university's historic houses
