Lentz appointed to Henry Hamilton Chair in Hematology


Dr. Steven Lentz, UI professor of internal medicine, has been appointed to the Henry Hamilton Chair in Hematology. The new five-year term was effective July 1. Lentz previously held a five-year appointment to the Henry Hamilton Professorship of Hematology.

The endowed chair honors Dr. Henry Hamilton, a professor of internal medicine whose UI connection spanned nearly 50 years as both a student and faculty member. Hamilton died in 1986. The chair was established through the UI Foundation by a bequest from the estate of John and Oral Sebelin of Davenport. John Sebelin credited Henry Hamilton with saving his life. Oral Sebelin was a UI alumna.
