H. Jack Geiger, RIP: “The clinic ‘prescribed’ food for families with malnourished children — to be purchased from Black-owned groceries — and the bills were paid out of the center’s pharmacy budget. The governor complained, and a federal official was sent to Mound Bayou to scold Dr. Geiger for misusing pharmacy funds, which, the official said, were meant to cover drugs to treat disease. ‘Yeah,’ Dr. Geiger replied, ‘well, the last time I looked in my medical textbooks, they said the specific therapy for malnutrition was food.’
