A letter from an alum about surgeon Michael Kaplitt ’87

November 6, 2003

I read with interest your article on Dr. Kaplitt and his Parkinson's disease surgical technique. I hope you will do a follow-up article on him and his operation(s) re PD? Apparently, a number of grads are so afflicted. A roommate of mine, Bill Volckhausen, died of compllications from PD on 9/l0/0l and I noticed a grad from another class advertising in his class notes for communications with fellow sufferers from PD.

Keep up the outstanding work!

Boyd (John) Hornor '59
