In Memoriam: Martha Snavely
Martha Snavely, the wife of the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s first Department of Medicine chair, Dr. Robert Snavely, died June 8. She was 97.
“Like all the other ‘first spouses,’ she contributed enormously to the growth and progress of this Medical Center in its early days and to making the institution a part of the community,” said Barbara Austin, longtime public affairs director at UMMC. “She remained active in the Medical Center’s events and activities throughout her life.”
