Robert E. Gaylord Annual Alumni Meeting 

     Each year the alumni gather for a continuing education seminar designed to bring the alumni and their families together for learning and relaxing.  For the educational portion, we are usually fortunate to be able to secure a world class speaker to enhance our clinical knowledge.  For the relaxing part of the meeting, we usually have a golf tournament, children's activities, a cocktail party and a formal dinner.  Several awards for faculty and alumni are also presented.  The Full-time Faculty and residents are also invited and encouraged to attend.  Some of the alumni remember these meetings as some of their fondest moments as they watch their children grow up within this extended "family".  Several of the children have even made it back through as residents themselves, continuing an outstanding tradition of service to the department and the profession.  Please join your fellow alumni at the next meeting as the tradition continues and the "Baylor Family" continues to grow.

Dr. Robert E. Gaylord

            The family known as "Baylor Orthodontics" is founded and largely based on the life, principles, and philosophy of Dr. Robert E. Gaylord. It is in his honor that we annually hold the Baylor Orthodontic Alumni Association Robert E. Gaylord Seminar.

            Since the department's inception in 1961, Dr. Gaylord has devoted tireless efforts to see that Baylor Orthodontics became the department with an impeccable reputation, known for being "the best of the best. " Over the years he wore many hats in this role of leadership, and received numerous distinguished awards, all of which were richly deserved. Simple words such as these cannot express the depth of thanks we, as Baylor graduates, feel for the way the "Blue Chief" influenced our lives and families.

            Our enduring gratitude must be expressed by the way each of us conducts our lives, both personally and professionally.  Dr. Gaylord created a legacy that has and should continue to be carried on throughout the years.  Dr. Gaylord, you will be missed, but not forgotten.

SERVICES WEDNESDAY FOR DR. ROBERT E. GAYLORD

By Robert Miller and Joe Simnacher

Dr. Robert E. Gaylord, one of the first academically trained orthodontists in the Southwest and a former chairman of the Department of Orthodontics at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, died Saturday of congestive heart failure at his Dallas home.

Services will be at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Highland Park United Methodist Church, 3300 Mockingbird Lane in Dallas. Dr. Gaylord, 86, will be buried at Hillcrest Memorial Park.

In addition to his academic work at the dental school, Dr. Gaylord was an orthodontist in Highland Park for nearly 50 years.

"Bob Gaylord as an incredible motivator," said Dr. James S. Cole, dean of the Dallas dental college and interim president of Texas A&M University System Health Science Center, with which Baylor College of Dentistry is affiliated. "He ...would constantly encourage those around him to share his commitment to excellence in all things."

Born May 12, 1914, in Geneva, Ill., Dr. Gaylord earned his bachelor’s degree at Michigan State University , where he was a running back on the football team. He received degrees in dentistry and orthodontics from Northwestern University in Chicago in 1937 and 1939.

Dr. Gaylord came to Dallas in 1940, while on a business trip to Corpus Christi, said his stepson, Sutart Bumpas of Dallas.

The Spanish and Mediterranean-style architecture of Highland Park Village caught his eye. He asked whether the shopping center had an orthodontist. When the center’s co-developer said it did not, he replied: ‘Well, now you have one.’"

During his half-century of practice, Dr. Gaylord was active in academics and many professional organizations. He organized the first class in graduate orthodontics at the Dallas dental school in 1961 and was chairman of that group from 1965 until 1978. He also served as president the American Association of Orthodontists from 1972 to 1973.

In 1991, Baylor College of Dentistry created its first chair in dentistry in his honor.

Dr. Gaylord was a part-time faculty member at Baylor until about three years ago but remained active with the school’s oral health foundation.

"Bob Gaylord was a real friend of mine personally and professionally for more than 30 years," said Dr. Claude R. Williams Sr., the dental college’s director of community outreach and a retired orthodontist.

"I am more sensitive to the loss because of the sacrifices he made for hire me in 1972," Dr. Williams said. "I became the college’s first African-American faculty member in a less-than-welcoming environment. Yet Bob stood solidly by my side. He was a man of great character and strong convictions."

Dr. Gaylord was also an accomplished chef and a founding member of Helen Corbitt’s Men’s Cooking Class, his stepson said.

In addition to his stepson, Dr. Gaylord is survived by his wife, Martha Gaylord of Dallas; two sons, William C. Gaylord and Robert Gaylord Jr., both of Flagstaff Ariz.; two daughters, Martha Gaylord Lidji of Dallas and Alison Gaylord Monnich of San Antonio; eight grandchildren; and a great grandchild.

Memorials may be made to the Baylor Oral Health Foundation, 3600 Gaston Ave., Suite 1151 LB90, Dallas, TX 75246, or the Baylor College of Dentistry c/o Susan Mitchell, 3302 Gaston Ave., Dallas, TX 75246.
