Part 5, the last of the series, acquaints us with the man, Fred Elliott, his philosophy, his faith, his talents and the principles that haveguided his life. Describing retirement as "freedom from the impediments of salary," Dr. Elliott remains active as a Board Member of Texas Medical Center, Inc. and a Trustee of the Johnson Foundation. He pursues the personally fulfilling benefits of creative writing in his collection called "God's Promptings." He writes in the early morning hours to clear the brain before getting on with the business of the day. Fred Elliott, a gentle, creative man is also revealed as an inventor. Among his inventions: a Wafflewich to make dripless sandwiches, a Guardog to sound an alarm for prowlers, and an alarm to warn when air pressure in an auto tire is too low. Dr. Elliott's strong influence on those whose lives he touched is easily understood from this chapter of his life. See more at https://archives.library.tmc.edu/avv-ic084-038.
