Room 916 was the office he worked in since 1934, but now Dr. Maurice J. Taylor, affectionately known as "Maury" to his friends, is the last of 200 physicians to leave the Boston Building.
Making a new start, Taylor, who was presented the Selective Service Medal by President Theodore Roosevelt for outstanding service in the armed forces, is relocating to an office in his home - the same house in which he was born on the first Mother's Day.Taylor has taught at the University of Utah, where he graduated, and has worked on the medical staff of the Pennsylvania Hospital and the Salt Lake General Hospital. He is beginning his 57th year of continuous service at LDS Hospital.
And he plans to continue serving.
Taylor is an active member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, the Salt Lake Medical Society and Rotary International. An owner of several beehives, Taylor has been an Eagle Scout, world traveler, figure skater, horseman, ballroom dancer and has raised prize-winning saddle-bred horses. He also was the originator of "Music of the Masters," a contemporary radio program that featured classical music twice weekly.
