SCA Chirurgeon-General Names Successor

Friar Galen of Ockham, the current Chirurgeon-General of the SCA, has announced that the successor to his office has been chosen. Dame Eleanor Isabeau du Coeur, a resident of the Principality (and soon Kingdom) of Northshield, will take office at the Board of Directors meeting on April 24, 2004. The announcement was made following this weekend's Board meeting.

Eleanor was recently elevated to the Order of the Pelican for her long-standing service in the Chirurgeonate and other areas of the SCA. She has served as a Chirurgeon in several Kingdoms and also served as Acting Chirurgeon-General during the time when Friar Galen was deployed overseas on active military duty.
