CAPT John C. Eason, Jr.

CAPT John C. Eason, Jr. (Ret.), was the first African-American to be commissioned by U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS). He received his commission in 1943 as an assistant sanitarian working for the Baltimore City Health Department. In 1945, CAPT Eason was selected to serve as liaison officer to the U.S. mission to Liberia. He was one of the first officers to be assigned to the Office of International Health (OIH), where assignments took him to numerous countries all around the world. After 30 years of service, CAPT Eason retired in 1974. Throughout his career, CAPT Eason rose above many obstacles and struggled for recognition, credibility, and advancement in an arena that often undervalued and underestimated the abilities of AfricanAmericans. Not only during his USPHS career, but also in retirement, CAPT Eason demonstrated leadership, dedication, and commitment to the mission of the USPHS. NEHA would like to extend its sympathies to CAPT Eason's family and friends. Source: EHOPAC-L Digest, 21 Feb 2012 to 22 Feb 2012 (#2012-10).
