Coston Lectureship

Tullos O. Coston Lectureship

Tullos O. Coston, MD moved to Oklahoma in 1936 from the faculty of the Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute at Johns Hopkins. He was described by his former Chairman Alan Woods as “one of the ablest technical ophthalmic surgeons in the country” and a man of “sterling honesty”.

In 1971 Dean McGee, President and CEO of Kerr-McGee Corp., developed a retinal detachment. This was successfully repaired by Dr. Coston, assisted by Thomas E. Acers, MD In return, Mr. McGee helped assembled a team of Oklahoma community and business leaders to shepherd the development of an institute. Through the efforts of Drs. Coston, Acers and Clay the Dean McGee Eye Institute was founded.

In honor of the enormous contributions of Dr. Coston a named lectureship has been established in his honor. Held at the Annual Resident and Alumni Meeting distinguished ophthalmologists are invited to share their research, interest and expertise.
