Photo: Birthday wishes

Mildred Stahlman, M.D., greets longtime colleague Robert Cotton, M.D., after he spoke during her 90th birthday celebration July 31 at the University Club. A host of well-wishers greeted Stahlman, who joined the Vanderbilt faculty in 1951 and who is credited with establishing the first newborn intensive care unit in the country to use monitored respiratory therapy on infants with damaged lungs.
