George W. Swift, M.D. Endowed Scholarship in Medicine
George Wilkins Swift graduated from the University of Washington in 1901, and he received his M.D. from Northwestern University in 1907. He became a prominent surgeon. His spouse, Florence Hilda Swift (née Shirker) created a loan fund to honor her husband in 1968. She made subsequent gifts to the loan fund, and, when she died in 1980, a portion of her estate was directed to support it.
In converting this loan fund into an endowed scholarship in 2008, UW Medicine pays tribute to the Swifts and honors their intention to support medical students at the UW School of Medicine.
