Dr. Nat Winston, recruited me as a medical director for one of the hospitals he started in the 1980's. We remained friends. I will surely miss him.

Nat and I traveled together in the late 1970's. He taught me much about developing psychiatric programs. He opened the first "open door psychiatric hospital" in the country in Chattanooga TN. He will always be remembered! Dan Page
When Nat became Commissioner of Mental Health, my grandmother (Marion Peck) was his Press Secretary. They were already good friends. They learned that their birthdays were two days apart, and Earl Scruggs' was four days after that. Great excuse for a party! I picture him now in that Great Cabin In The Sky, with Marion and Earl, and Doc Watson, and Johnny Cash, and many more loved ones, having one heck of a hootenanny!
My father, Dr. Joseph J Baker preceded Dr. Winston as the Commissioner of Mental Health and always thought well of him as a trusted colleague. Funny but I saw Dr.Winston's name this week in a Johny Cash biography and just wondered, searched the internet just now. I still have my how-to banjo record and can still pick a very things for fun with the Scruggs finger roll. God Bless
