Dr. Loyal Davis’ Legacy
Dr. Loyal Davis was one of America’s most distinguished neurological surgeons of the 20th century. Dr. Davis was devoted to the highest principles of surgery that translated into superb patient care, neurophysiologic study and education. He was the chairman of neurosurgery at the Northwestern University medical school, who practiced at the University for 40 years. He was outspoken on both professional and political matters. A maverick among surgeons, he stood for principles in a world that would occasionally lose its compass. His beliefs transferred to his stepdaughter Nancy Reagan and subsequently to her husband who became the 40th president of the United States.
President Reagan implemented sweeping new political and economic initiatives; he ended the Cold War and firmly established himself as a conservative icon. In his inaugural address the president called upon Americans to begin an “era of national renewal.” He encouraged development of private sector initiatives. He fought and won expansion of the Medicare program to protect the elderly and disabled against catastrophic health costs.
Known as the great communicator President Reagan had a clear social, economic and foreign policy agenda. His sole goal he stated, “What I’d like to do is go down in history as the president who made Americans believe in themselves again.”
