While USC conducted a nationwide search for a dean for its school of medicine, Dr. Stephen J. Ryan stepped in as interim dean in 1991, expecting to serve for six months. He held the job a record 13 years. During his tenure as dean, it became known as the Keck School of Medicine of USC after the W.M. Keck Foundation donated $110 million to the institution, then the largest gift ever given to a medical school. Ryan was credited with raising the school's national profile, getting state-of-the-art facilities built, and expanding the level and quality of sponsored research.

Three-hundred pals of the Doheny Eye Institute were back in the saddle again Monday evening at the Beverly Wilshire--this time in black tie and with that American treasure, Gene Autry.

Fresh from announcing a record $200-million pledge for their medical school, UCLA officials Tuesday were understandably giddy.

Fans of New York cabaret star Bobby Short let him know "You're the Top" the other evening to make the third annual Doheny Award Benefit at the Regent Beverly Wilshire a huge success--400 guests for a $200,000 net. Along with Short's legendary rendition of Cole Porter lyrics (he's in his 27th year at Cafe Carlyle), the affair was music to the ears of co-chairmen Joni Smith and Ed Landry. The evening also soothed nerves: Landry is still digging out from the Northridge disaster.
