Deaths Elsewhere

December 08, 2003

Dr. John A. Kenney Jr., 89, a leading specialist in dermatological conditions afflicting African-Americans, died Nov. 29 of heart failure at his home in Washington.

Dr. Kenney was one of the first black doctors to be formally trained in dermatology and developed the dermatology department of Howard University's College of Medicine into a major research center, said Dr. William E. Matory, a surgeon and the director of continuing medical education at the National Medical Association, an organization of black physicians.

Many colleagues referred to him as the dean of black dermatology.
