Inscribed on the mount by Perón in Spanish, on December 23, 1948, to the internationally renowned dentist, Dr. Stanley D. Tylman, "in gratitude for his services to Argentina and the friendliness he has shown me with his exquisite delicacy ... "

"Born in 1893, dentist Stanley D. Tylman not only taught more than 1,000 students at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in his long career as a Professor of Dentistry (1920-1962) and head of the Department of Fixed Partial Prosthodontics, but he influenced countless dentists internationally as well.

"Tylman was particularly effective as a global educational force because he spoke four languages. His international lecture schedule took him to Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, and South America--including Argentina, where he performed dental work for President Juan Peron and First Lady Evita Peron. Dentists worldwide traveled to Chicago for personal consultations with Dr. Tylman ... Tylman died in 1982." -- Wikipedia, 8/3/06.
