In an effort to be admitted to medical school in 1948, Dr. John Galambos wrote to Albert Einstein, who had been helpful to Jewish students in America. Dr. Einstein's reply left Galambos with little hope, indicating it was unlikely a Jewish boy would be admitted to a medical school in the South. However, Dr. Galambos proved Einstein wrong by graduating from Emory University Medical School and later becoming a renowned gastroenterologist.
