papers for discussion. While in
Washington, Dr. Randolph served
as President of the Washington
Academy of Surgery, Chairman
of the Surgical Section of the
American Academy of Pediatrics,
and President of the American
Pediatric Surgical Association. He
was a member of the American
Surgical Association and the
Southern Surgical Association.
He was awarded the
Ladd Gold Medal by the
American Academy of
Pediatrics for his surgical

It was a source of great
satisfaction to Dr. Randolph
that he trained more than 40
of the finest pediatric surgeons
in this country and abroad,
many of whom have become
chiefs and training program
directors. ACS Past-President
Kathryn D. Anderson, MD,
FACS, for example, was one of
his trainees and then partner.
Dr. Randolph always enjoyed
quoting Dr. Gross: “A good pupil
will always outshine his teacher.”
Dr. Randolph was a member
of the Board of Trust of
Vanderbilt University from 1981
to 2004, at which time he became
an emeritus member. He was
active in Leadership Nashville,
an independent executive
leadership program, and in 2007
he was elected to the Nashville
Public Schools Hall of Fame.
Dr. Randolph’s wife of
nearly 50 years, Comfort
Adams Randolph, died in 2001.
Dr. Randolph is survived by his
five children: Somers of Santa
Fe, NM; Garrett of Belfast,
ME; Judson Jr. (Catherine) of
Seattle, WA; Adam of Sewanee,
TN; and Comfort (Bradford
Belbas) of Edina, MN; and
his eight grandchildren.
Two memorial services for
Dr. Randolph were held—the
first on July 25 in Nashville,
and the second on August 22 in
Washington, DC—to celebrate
his personal and professional
life there for 30 years. ♦
