ADA Presidents Album
Doctor Scherer, of Houston, became the eighty-second president of the Association at the 1944 meeting in Chicago. The meeting was originally scheduled to be held in Omaha; the change to Chicago was caused by wartime travel restrictions. Doctor Scherer, a professor of oral medicine and a private practitioner, served as president of the American Academy of Periodontology, the Houston Dental Society, and the Texas State Dental Society. At the University of Texas School of Dentistry, he served on the board of trustees and as president of the faculty. In 1945 Doctor Scherer was appointed to the board of regents of the University of Texas. He was born in Kentucky in 1880 and died in 1951.
