LCWRT Loses Life Member Wolfe Scofield

The Louisville Civil War Round table is saddened by the death of Dr. Wolfe Scofield on April 3, 2011 after a long illness. Wolfe was a Past President and former board member and dedicated to the welfare of the Round Table. He was honored with our Life Membership in 2008. He and Tiffany were a fixture on our Spring Field Trips.

He will be missed. We extend deep sympathies to Tiffany and their son Ted.

From the Courier Journal:

"A lifelong Louisvillian, Wolfe was a graduate of Atherton High School, the University of Louisville and U of L's School of Medicine. He was honored with the Distinguished Alumnus Award and Alumni Service Award from the College of Arts & Sciences, and the Irvin S. Abell Sr. Award from the School of Medicine. Wolfe completed his surgical training at the Mayo Clinic and served as president of the Jefferson County Medical Society, chief of staff and chief of surgery of Audubon Hospital as well as numerous other medical staffs. He was very active in the community, serving as president and life member of the Louisville Civil War Round Table, president of the Innominate Society and the Woodcock Society, and leading many other local organizations. He was a member of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church and especially enjoyed going on mission trips."
