Martin, Dr. Glen Emerson
b. & d. Wichita, A retired anesthesiologist, everyone called him "Doc". A very gentle, kind and loving man who cared deeply for his family as well as for his patients, he will be greatly missed. Doc was the son of Glen Emerson Martin and Amy Jane Stuchberry Martin. He was baptized at the First Presbyterian Church. Committed to his faith for the rest of his life, he later served as a deacon and an elder in the Presbyterian Church. Dr. Martin graduated from East High School, the University of Wichita and received his M.D. from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 1949. A talented pianist, Doc was a member of a band that performed in Wichita during his school years. During World War II, he served his country with honor as a member of the 315th General Hospital Unit stationed in the Philippines. Dr. Martin met his wife, Alice Louise Brown, at the University of Kansas. They were married in 1943 in Lawrence, Kansas and enjoyed over 61 years of a wonderful marriage.
During his early tenure as a doctor, he worked to provide much needed medical care to rural communities in western Kansas. In 1958, he began a residency in anesthesiology at St. Francis Hospital in Wichita. He founded Medical Anesthesia Services, PA to serve the Wichita area and surrounding rural communities. His company was instrumental in providing nurse anesthetists for area hospitals through the nurse anesthetist school founded by Dr. Martin. During his undergraduate days, Doc served as trainer for the WU football team. When his own young son became interested in football, Doc was one of six fathers who formed the Greater Wichita Football League, Inc, a citywide program for boys in the 6th through 9th grades. He served for many years as an active director. The program was an outstanding success and has since been incorporated into the Wichita Parks and Recreation Programs. Proud of the heritage of his country and family, Doc was a member of the Washington Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. An avid supporter of the University of Kansas, Doc was a lifetime member of the KU Alumni Association.
He was also a member of the Eastminster Presbyterian Church, the Wichita Country Club, and numerous medical societies including the Sedgwick County Medical Society, the American
Medical Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and the International Anesthesia Research Society.
