In 1987, I completed my Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship under  Drs. Howard W. Jones Jr. and his wife Georgeanna Seegar Jones, the two pioneers of in-vitro fertilization in the USA and the entire western hemisphere.

This picture was taken at their house on the Elizabeth River in Norfolk during one of the bimonthly journal clubs.  It was routine for the Joneses to host the journal clubs twice a month during which the entire Reproductive Endocrinology team would discuss interesting cutting edge research in the field.
