Lt. DeForest Lord Jr., US Navy, 1944.

Dr, Lord died in 1975 from a brain tumor, most likely caused by radiation exposure he received while removing fillings from the teeth of 7 individuals who had been injured in an explosion at Los Alamos in 1946, where he was a dentist. He was a delayed casualty of WWII.

Voces honors your memory, Dr. Lord. RIP

Family

Both sides of my family trace their roots in the Santa Fé area to the 1600s.  In the earlier years they were primarily farmers, builders, craftsmen, artists (wood carvers and weavers), and educators.  I graduated from SFHS & NMSU and received my BA & MA in Speech & Language Pathology. I divide my time between Santa Fé and the San Francisco Bay Area.
