The New Department of Radiation Oncology 1970–1975
The Department of Radiation Oncology was established effective June 1, 1970, with separation of radiology into imaging radiology and therapeutic radiology. Accordingly, the Chief of Radiation Oncology would report directly to the General Director of the hospital, John Knowles, and serve as a member of the General Executive Committee. An interesting point is that then and for many years, the Chief of Radiation Oncology was the only oncologist on the General Executive Committee.
