About Eugene Bell Linton, Sr.

Eugene B. Linton died January 10, 2015 at his home. Dr. Linton was born to William A. Linton and Charlotte B. Linton on the Presbyterian mission field in Kunsan, Korea on April 21, 1924. He was homeschooled during his early years in Korea. When on furlough, his family lived in Thomasville, Georgia where he graduated from high school. Dr. Linton attended Davidson College and graduated in 1947.

A veteran of World War II, he was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge and was imprisoned by the Germans until the end of the war. He married Anne Ligon Linton of Columbia Tennessee in 1947. He graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond in 1951. He served as an intern in Wilmington, North Carolina and moved to Alta Vista Virginia in 1952 where he was a general practitioner.

In 1956 he moved with his wife Anne and three children to Winston-Salem to begin residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Bowman Gray School of Medicine. On completion of his training in 1959, the Lintons moved to Knoxville, Tennessee where Dr. Linton started practice at the Acuff Clinic. In 1962 the family returned to Winston-Salem where he joined the faculty at Bowman Gray. After a successful teaching career he left the medical school to start Lyndhurst Gynecological Associates in 1970. Thanks to his leadership and legacy, Lyndhurst is the longest standing private medical practice in the state of North Carolina. After the death of his first wife, he married Betty Jo Harrell of Winston-Salem.

In 1977, Dr. Linton took over as Chairman of OB-GYN at the University of Tennessee Memorial Hospital in Knoxville. The couple returned to Winston-Salem in 1984 and Dr. Linton rejoined Lyndhurst Gynecological Associates. Dr. Linton retired from practice in 1994 and moved to Arbor Acres in 2011. He was a long time member of Highland Presbyterian Church, having served the church as a ruling elder since 1956.

Dr. Linton is survived by his three children, Rev. Eugene B. Linton, Jr. and his wife Deb, of Walnut, NC, Dr. Jane L. Thilo of Bellevue, WA, and Charlotte L. Berliner and her husband Ernest, of Asheboro, NC; six grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
