Dr. Kildare Comes to Town

Richard Chamberlain, star of the hugely popular “Dr. Kildare” TV series, came to the Queen City in May, 1965 to promote his new movie “Joy in the Morning”. Teenagers went wild, and so did the women of the Auxilliary to the NC Medical Society.

I learned about this event when the young lady in the “Her Hero” photo contacted me, asking to locate the article. She turns 60 next year but remembers she “got razzed at school” when the picture ran in the paper!
