Roger Barnes

(1897-1982). Urologist. Born in Littleton, Colorado, he attended the College of Medical Evangelists (now Loma Linda University), graduating in 1922. After his residency, he accepted an appointment to the faculty of the school and served there until his death. One of his most noted accomplishments was involvement in the development of trans-urethral resections of the prostate, a procedure in which he was unsurpassed. At the School of Medicine he served as chairman of the Department of Urology for several years. He and his wife, Oca, accepted assignments to various parts of the world, including the Middle East, Far East, Australia, South America, and Southern Asia, where they helped establish and organize teaching programs in urology.
