# Centenarian alum remembers days as WWII medic

As a student at Cornell in the late 1930s, Cedric Jimerson ’40 M.D. ’43, started his days trekking downtown to the Cornell infirmary at 5:30 a.m., where he would deliver food to patients and help out in the kitchen. He’d then trudge back up Buffalo Street to attend classes and head back downtown again in the late afternoon for his second shift.
