Charles C. J. Carpenter Notice
Dr. Charles Colcock Jones Carpenter, Jr., a pioneering medical researcher, is remembered as a mentor to many doctors, an innovator in cholera and HIV/AIDS treatment, and a big-hearted family man. Carpenter was especially passionate about ensuring the fair treatment of all people, especially those unfairly disadvantaged by societal forces.

Carpenter attended medical school at Johns Hopkins, and became a tenured professor at Hopkins, and Physician in Chief at Baltimore City Hospital.

Dr. Carpenter died peacefully at home on March 19, with his wife and sons by his side. He is survived by Sally, his wife of 61 years; his brother, the Reverend Douglas Morrison Carpenter, of Birmingham, Alabama; sisters Ruth Pitts, of Mountain Brook, Alabama, and Alex Cole of Short Hills, New Jersey; sons Charles, of Portland, Maine, Murray and Andrew, both of Belfast, Maine; and seven grandchildren. They suggest donations in his memory to the Immunology Center Patient Assistance Fund at The Miriam Hospital, or the Southern Poverty Law Center. A memorial service will be held later, when public gatherings are more prudent.
