We crafted this stethoscope to honor Dr. William Montague Cobb. In 1932 Dr. Cobb became the first African American to earn a doctorate in physical anthropology. Cobb applied his research to challenging theories of scientific racism and fighting racial discrimination in access to healthcare.
As a full-time faculty member at the Howard University College of Medicine for 41 years (1932-73), he has touched three generations of black doctors. He also assembled a world-class anatomical collection at Howard University. Cobbs pioneering work paved the way for future generations of African American anthropologist and demonstrated that science could be a tool in the struggle for racial equality.
Cobb believes his generation can stand by its accomplishments but wants to see their spirit carried forward. "We were a generation of offensive linemen, big and rough. We had to make a hole. Now we have to have fastbacks or the hole will close in."
