Lamar McNew

In addition to practicing medicine locally for more than five decades, Dr. Lamar McNew served as a Professor of Family and Community Medicine at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center. His father, J.T.L, McNew was head of the Civil Engineering Department at A&M and a vice president at the school. Like his father, Lamar received a civil engineering degree from A&M, but, after serving as an Air Force instructor pilot, Lamar chose to become a doctor. His service to the local community dates back to 1938, when as a six-year-old, Lamar collected signatures on the petition to incorporate the City of College Station.
