Charles E. Putman, M.D.

Dr. Putman was Chairman of the Duke Department of Radiology from 1977 to 1985. During his time at Duke, he led Duke Radiology into the highest echelons of excellence in clinical care, teaching and academics. As former Duke University President Nannerl Keohane recalled: “He was a brilliant scientist whose pathbreaking work in imaging was world renowned. While he was a national leader in research policy, he was first and foremost a physician who cared deeply about his patients. His compassionate caring for so many people and his strong leadership of the university’s research enterprise made an enormous difference to Duke. No one loved Duke more nor was more dedicated to our university than Charles.”
