L.A. Morgan Endowment

LA Morgan

On behalf of all the staff and residents of the Department of Endodontology, we want to thank you for your support of the Leslie A. Morgan Endodontic Endowment Fund. With your contributions, we are well on the way to providing an ongoing endowment to support the Advanced Education program in Endodontics (Endodontic Residency Program) here at OHSU. As of December 31st 2014, the Endowment Fund contains $396,884. Every year 5% of the fund is available for dispersal.

The proceeds from the endowment each year are vital to providing expenses for the residents to attend endodontic meetings (AAE Annual Session and Board review courses), funding for resident research projects, honorariums and expenses for consultants/speakers as well as special materials and equipment to support the residents.

As most of you know the Endowment fund was named for Les Morgan. Les was a 1979 graduate of OHSU School of Dentistry. During the summers following his sophomore and junior years of dental school he performed research for the Dept. of Endodontology. Following Dental School he spent three years in the army including a GPR at Fort Riley in Kansas. After the army Les entered the postdoctoral endodontic program at UT San Antonio. After receiving his certificate in 1984 Les returned to Portland in 1984 where he combined a love of academics and clinical practice for fourteen years until his death in 1998. Here at OHSU Les had his finger in all the Endo pies. He lectured to the undergrads and spent time in the clinic with them. His first love though was the grad program. Les mentored graduate student research, lectured and covered the clinic. He also did funded research and published many papers. He is missed by all who knew him. If you would like to make contributions to the Les Morgan Memorial Fund please e-mail us at sedgley@ohsu.edu.
