Clarence Livingood’s work ethic and sense of honor and duty to his chosen profession drove him to accomplish more than perhaps all but a few of his contemporaries. His passing coincides with the end of the century and the end of the millennium and truly marks the closing of an era for our specialty. Clarence Livingood influenced not only people—the certificate of every diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology from 1962 to 1992 bears his signature—but also profoundly influenced organizations, especially the American Board of Dermatology. Clearly these influences are his lasting legacy.
