research at Columbia in
the area of blood preser
vation and it's use for'

often occupied as many as
eighteen hours a day.
Drew gathered mass scien
tific data that led to a
publication . entitled.
Banked Blood: A Study in
Blood Preservation in
1940 that outlined an effi
cient method of storing
large quantities of blood
plasma in "blood banks".
He earned a Doctor ot
Science degree from Col
umbia. Prior to Drew's
work, there had been no
way to store large quan
tities of blood for transfu
sions. At the outbreak of
World War II, it is
reported that Drew receiv
ed an urgent cable from
Dr. John Beattie, director
of the research
laboratories of the Royal
College of Surgeons, re
questing 5,000 ampules of
' dried plasma. Nowhere in
the entire, world could
such amount of dried
, blood be procured.
However, heading a
"Blood for Britain" pro
ject, Drew procured
enough blood to save thei
lives of thousands of1
soldiers at the height of
the Nazi German blit-
zkreig of England in
September, 1940. ,
The following year, Dr.
Drew was selected as the
director of the American
Red Cross Blood Bank
and as assistant director of
blood procurement for the
National Research Coun
cil. This was during the
time that the Red Cross
itself would not accept a
donation of blood from.
Drew because he was a
Negro. With continued :
protests of the humiliating '
, practice of separating
Negro and white blood,
the Red Cross changed it's
Drew resigned his posi
tion at the Red Cross. He
returned to a professor
ship in surgery at Howard
Medical School with a
president . ' of the ;
Society. He received
honorary degrees of Doc
tor of Science from
Virginia State College and
Amherst. ; v
Dr. Drew continued his
research, even as he, head
ed : Freedmen's . Hospital,
until an untimely car acci
dent claimed his life near
Burlington , North
Carolina on April 1, 1950.
Popular reports of the
;time record thqit Dr.
Drew, the pioneer of
blood plasma preserva
tion, was refused admis
sion to an Alamance
County hospital because
1 he was a Negro. pr.

reports as a
Watts said there were
three physicians in the car
at the time of the accident.
They were all injured;
three were treated; Dr.
i Drew's case was critical
and he died at the hospital
in the process, of being
transported to Duke
Hospital in Durham.
