    Bernard Wheatley, M.D., Hermit at Kalalua

    “The turning point in his life came, I believe, in 1946, when he was rejected after applying for a surgical internship at _______Hospital in Boston. Three men were interviewed and there were two appointments made. All three men — Bernard was the only African-American — took the same test. After the test one of the examining doctors took Bernard aside and spoke to him confidentially. ‘You got the best score on the examination, but you don’t stand a chance of being appointed,’ he told him. Bernard was not accepted.
    This was the real blow that crushed him. He had a different outlook after that. He simply lost interest.”
