Quotes from Biographical Sources

Because of lack of contact for many years we have little information about the life of Norbert Parker Gillem prior to his death in August 1985. He was born August 30, 1919, in Washington, D.C., where he attended Dunbar High School for three years before his further preparatory work at the Mount Hermon school in Massachusetts.

Following his graduation from Dartmouth, Bert took an M.D. degree from the Medical College of New York University and had a fellowship in medical research at Howard University. His medical service included internship and residency at Harlem Hospital in New York City, a residency concerned with chest diseases at Freedman's Hospital in Washington, and a fellowship in the American Trudeau Society of Howard University's medical school. Bert also did medical work as a first lieutenant in the military reserve during World War II.

At the time of his death Bert Gillem lived in Washington, D.C., where he had maintained a private practice. His death was indicated by the return of College mail, and there is no information about survivors.
