Former President, Rob Fish, Delivers The 7th Annual Dr. Ida S. Scudder Humanitarian Oration

On August 9, 2018 the seventh annual Dr. Ida S. Scudder Humanitarian Oration was held in the Scudder Auditorium, Christian Medical College, Vellore.  The Oration was delivered by Dr. Robert H. Fish, DMD in honor of Dr. Ida B. Scudder.

Rob was chosen for this honor not only for his years of actively and generously supporting CMC but also to honor his mother’s sister, Aunt Ida B. Scudder, who was the subject of his oration. Rob spoke eloquently and passionately about growing up in the shadow of his revered Aunt. His comments may be watched via these links:

It is a warm and moving expression by a man who was obviously influenced by the love and compassion so abundantly expressed by his Aunt Ida B. and Great Aunt Ida S. We encourage you to take a moment and enjoy Rob’s moving presentation.

This was a proud day, 100 years in the making for the Scudder Association – Thank you Rob.
