Portrait of John M. Daly '73 by artist Peter Schaumann


Following more than eight years of leadership as dean, the portrait of John M. Daly, MD ’73, was presented to the School of Medicine on May 6, 2011. It will hang outside the John M. Daly and William N. Parkinson Dean’s Suite on the 11th floor of the Medical Education and Research Building.

During the dedication, E. Ronald Salvitti, MD ’63, chair of the School of Medicine Board of Visitors and Larry R. Kaiser, MD, current dean and CEO of Temple University Health System, spoke of Dr. Daly’s years of service and dedication to the medical school and the Temple community.

“This portrait serves as a testament to John’s service to the school as dean. As he gave his credit to so many others, it’s time to give credit to him,” Dr. Salvitti said.
Portrait artist Peter Schaumann shared how he captured Dr. Daly’s spirit and character in the portrait, and how the narrative of the image tells a story of his achievements.

Dr. Daly thanked everyone who worked with him over his tenure at the School of Medicine and credited their efforts in making change possible at Temple University School of Medicine. One of the most significant legacies left by Dr. Daly is the new building in which his portrait hangs.

“The legacy of this building is not the bricks and mortar; the legacy is the people,” he said.
