John P. Loge Obituary
August 09, 1917 - July 29, 2018
John Philip Loge, MD of Redlands, California passed away on July 29, 2018, eleven days before his 101st birthday. Philip was born on August 9, 1917, in Redlands Burke Sanitarium, to Frank J. and Ruth L. Loge. He began his schooling at Kingsbury Grammar School. The following years included attending Redlands Junior High and graduating from Redlands Senior High School in 1935. Philip went on to graduate from the University of Redlands. Philip then attended Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, where he received his M.D. degree 1943. Philip accepted an Internship in Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital but changed to Internal Medicine where he felt he could be more helpful to the war effort. Philip completed his Internship and Residency at Duke School of Medicine. Active military service followed in the Army Medical Corp as a 1st Lieutenant in the 313th General Hospital in Manila. At that time a series of 1000 bed hospitals were being built and staffed to support the invasion of Japan. However, with the surrender of Japan, Philip's unit was charged to care for internees from prison camps and hospitals throughout Japan.
Shortly after the Japanese surrender, Philip was assigned to the Joint American Japanese Medical Commission to treat and study the effects of the Atomic Bombs on human health both in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Philip and the American/Japanese medical team examined several thousand patients and plotted their location from the bomb epicenters at the time of the blasts. The Joint Commission results became a template for studies on Radiation Sickness for many years after the war.
Following army service, Philip returned to Duke Hospital as a Fellow in Medicine. Philip was awarded a National Research Council Fellowship in Hematology at Washington University School of Medicine and went to Barnes Hospital in St Louis to study the anemia associated with kidney failure.
In 1950 Philip opened an Internal Medicine practice in Redlands along with Yale classmate Dr.Carl Cook. Dr. Cook moved to the San Bernardino County Medical Center as a full-time cardiologist. Philip became a part-time consultant in Hematology at the hospital. In 1968 Philip became CEO of San Bernardino County Medical Center, which had become a UCLA affiliated hospital for the training of primary care physicians. In 1974 the hospital became the clinical arm of a new UCR/UCLA Biomedical Training Program leading to the M.D. degree. After two years at UCR, students transferred to UCLA for their clinical training. This program shortened the M.D. program to seven years instead of the traditional eight years. Philip eventually transferred to UCLA as an Associate Dean.
Philip retired from UCLA in 1982 and returned to live in Redlands. He was an avid reader, loved his Great Pyrenees dogs and enjoyed sharing the cultural life in Los Angeles with family and friends. Philip is preceded in death by his first wife Helen Booker and Beverly Loge, his second wife. Children: Nicole, Mark, Tim, Frank, John and stepchildren Michael, Gary, Elizabeth and his beloved Toby who was his beloved companion.
A memorial service, followed by reception will be held on Monday August 27, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Trinity Episcopal Church, 419 S. Fourth Street, Redlands, California 92373. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to Inlands Empire Therapy Dogs. (inlandempiretherapydogs.org)
