    His story begins in the small town of Italy, Texas, known as "the biggest little city in Texas." Born in 1902, Dr. Fox graduated from Baylor University College of Medicine in Dallas in 1928 and did his dermatology training in New York at New York University and Philadelphia. Upon the completion of training, he returned to Dallas and held private practice for 43 years, retiring in 1975. He was a teacher of clinical dermatology and syphilology at Baylor University for eight years and subsequently at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

    Among his years as a dedicated physician and teacher, Dr. Fox's contributions to dermatology included the following: president of the American Medical Association, president of the Texas Dermatology Society, vice president of the American Academy of Dermatology, served on the AAD's Board of Directors for multiple years, member of the House of Delegates for the American Medical Association, and president of the Dallas County Medical Society.
