George LeBoff Professorship for Research in Digestive Diseases

GEORGE LeBOFF, a highly respected senior official with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, was frequently assigned the more difficult audits of prominent national corporations. A career IRS employee, Mr. LeBoff was involved in training new agents and, by the time of his retirement, he had risen to the rank of appeals officer, an administrative judge position. As a Hopkins patient and a longtime supporter of the Division of Gastroenterology, he saved as much as possible so that he could create this chair, feeling strongly that more specific knowledge was needed to alleviate the suffering caused by gastrointestinal diseases. Mr. LeBoff died in 1997.
