I am Paul Bailey Francis, Jr., great grandson of Philip Francis.  My family lived in LaFollette, TN.  I received BS and MD degrees from the University of Tennessee.  My post-graduate medical education in internal medicine and pulmonology were at Strong Memorial Hospital of the University of Rochester in New York and Parkland Memorial Hospital of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas.  In the middle of this training was a 2-year tour of duty with the US Navy, where I was stationed at the Naval Hospital, NAS, Pensacola, FL.  I began my career in 1974 in Atlanta, GA, as the Chief, Pulmonary Disease, at the Atlanta Veterans Administration (now Department of Veterans Affairs) Medical Center and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine.  After a 25-year career in academic and later, administrative, medicine, I retired at the end of 1999 as the Chief of Staff at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Atlanta) with the title of Professor Emeritus at Emory.  I have been active in genealogy and family history since 1997.  My wife, Linda, and I live in Atlanta.  I welcome comments, additions, and/or corrections to the annotations and genealogical information.
