Dr. Elmer Lodmell


My great-aunt Lyla was married to Uncle Lodi, who was one of the physicians who attended to President Dwight D. Eisenhower after the president's heart attack in 1955. I was always fascinated by, and proud of the fact, that my uncle had served the president. I never missed a chance to ask him about Eisenhower every time we got together. He was the first person I had ever met that personally knew a president.
