Dr. H. Rembert Malloy's family china donated
The Malloy Jordan East Winston Center recently received a wonderful donation. An eight place setting of Windemere china from Dr. and Mrs. H.Rembert Malloy’s family was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Harden Wheeler. The Wheelers acquired the china in 2004 at a public auction.
The china will be added to the Forsyth County Public Library collection and will be displayed for the public.
Many thanks to the Wheeler family, and also to Mrs. Cynthia W. Jeffries, owner of Jeff's Shared Treasures, for her assistance in coordinating the efforts.
Dr. Malloy was a prominent African American surgeon in Winston Salem who practiced medicine at the Kate B. Reynolds Hospital, was one of the first African American doctors to teach at Bowman Gray and was well known in the community. He along with his father, Dr. H.D. Malloy and Dr. Charles Jordan, donated land in 1953 for what became the East Winston Branch of the Forsyth County Public Library. In April 2004, the library was renamed the Malloy Jordan East Winston Heritage Center to honor the three African American doctors.
Dr. Malloy died May 23rd, 2004 at the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home.
