It was Scouting that piqued his interest in medicine. He was only one of three doctors in Texas City before becoming a Captain in the Army during World War II. He resumed his duties as Texas City Health Officer after his service which found him directing and participating in the aftermath of the infamous Texas City Explosion in 1947. There is extensive documentation on his participation in the aftermath. This disaster caused him to partner with another local doctor to build Texas City's first hospital. He practiced medicine in his hometown until his death more than 50 years ago.
