A $1 million gift from Drew Bauer, part-owner of the St. Louis Cardinals, will be used to establish a professorship in transplant surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Bauer, who received a kidney transplant at the medical center three years ago, said at a gift-giving ceremony yesterday that he wanted the professorship to advance research and encourage organ donations. The teaching position is being named for his sister, Barbara Bauer Dunlop, who donated a kidney to him. "I can't think of a better way to honor my sister, who saved my life through her brave and unselfish act," said Bauer, whose transplant was performed by a team led by Dr. Stephen T. Bartlett.
