Dr. John T. Shepherd, former dean of Mayo Medical School and a former member of the Mayo Foundation Board of Trustees, has died at the age of 92. Current dean Dr. Keith Lindor said Shepherd became dean after Lindor himself had been a student at Mayo Medical School for only a year or two. Shepherd, he said, was a great and stately man. "He just had this deanly presence about him," Lindor said.
