Cape Hatteras National Seashore was authorized by Congress on August 17, 1937, and established on January 12, 1953. As the nation's first national seashore, it encompasses 30,000 acres and crosses three islands, Bodie, Hatteras, and Ocracoke, for approximately 70 miles. Nearby Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, located within the authorized seashore boundary, is 5,880 acres. Over the centuries, the seashore has witnessed major historic events, including the landing of the first English explorers, the death of Blackbeard the pirate, Civil War battles, German U-boat attacks, hundreds of shipwrecks, and devastating hurricanes. Descended from horses brought over by Spanish explorers, the Ocracoke ponies still roam the landscape. This National Park Service unit also includes the majestic Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke Lighthouses. The seashore is a haven for wildlife and recreational beachgoers. Cape Hatteras National Seashore showcases the rich natural and cultural heritage of America's first national seashore.

In the spring of 1950, Dr. Lawson Wilkins made a presentation at the Sixth International Congress of Pediatrics in Zurich that gave birth to the new field of pediatric endocrinology. In this intimate biography, you will discover why this remarkable medical pioneer is remembered not only as a groundbreaking medical pioneer but also as a great scientist, inspiring educator, caring friend-and much more. Betsy McMaster, the doctor's daughter, remembers that momentous spring from her perspective as a young woman touring Europe with her parents, recalling a meeting in Paris with a young man who would become like family to her. She also provides biographical details about her father and reveals memories of a gregarious character who worked hard but made time to enjoy life with family and friends. In the second part of the book, Claude Jean Migeon, MD, recollects meeting with the Wilkins family in Paris as a pediatric student who had been accepted to work under Dr. Wilkins's tutelage at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He tells of the major role Dr. Wilkins played in both his career and personal life and describes his mentor's extraordinary contributions to the field of pediatric endocrinology from the perspective of a number of his colleagues.
