Roger L. Youmans, MD grew up in Kansas City, Kansas and attended the University of Kansas with a Summerfield and was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity for excellence in scholarship. He married Mary Winkie Stewart after his first year in the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Following his graduation and internship he became a resident in General Surgery, but after one year he took his family with him to Congo where he staffed a rural hospital for six months during the riots that followed Congos Independence from Belgium.
