In 1963 my maternal grandfather served as President of the Campbell-Kenton Medical Society. He held on to many items–meeting minutes, his acceptance speech, a plaque honoring his year of service–from that time. Another of these artifacts was a packet with suggested copy for ten radio spots speaking against King-Anderson, which we now know as Medicare. Operation Hometown was in large part an effort of the American Medical Association.
A reminder that the fight about health care goes back many decades.
