First Lt. Theodore Elias Corprew was the 320th’s medical officer. In 1936, he graduated from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, where black doctors were not allowed to treat white patients. He completed his Army training in 1943, the only African American in an all-white class. Officer training was a rare mixed-race preserve in the U.S. Army. After the war, Corprew moved to Washington, D.C., where he spent a long career as an obstetrician. He and his wife, Daisy, had one child, Barbara. Corprew died in 1991 at age 86.
