Estate of Frank Adshead, Jr. (D’37) Funds New Faculty Lounge

Penn Dental Medicine has been the beneficiary of an estate gift of the late Dr. Frank Adshead, Jr. (D’37), funding the creation of a new lounge for Penn Dental Medicine faculty. The dedication event for the lounge was held October 12, recognizing Dr. Adshead’s children – Dr. and Didi Adshead Owens (CW’ 63), the estate trustees – for generously designating this gift in honor of their father. Dr. Frank Adshead, Jr. was part of the Penn Dental Medicine for 25 years, serving as Assistant Professor of Operative Dentistry and Prosthetics from 1937 to 1971. He also maintained a private practice in the Frankford Section of Philadelphia.
