Patients taught many lessons to Dr. Radebaugh, a graduate of Harvard Medical School. He listened carefully, treated patients with respect, and was always available for house calls. He spent three years with Cesar Chavez, whose nonviolent efforts to organize farm workers, along with the grape boycott, attracted many supporters of justice for exploited workers. Humor and pathos summarize the career of a compassionate physician, dedicated to serving the poor.
