CAMBRIDGE — Milford Mace “Mickey” Foxwell, MD, and Ida Jane Baker, distinguished lifelong residents of Dorchester County, were honored in memoriam at a reception on Oct. 27 at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health at Cambridge.

Led by University of Maryland Shore Regional Health Board President David Milligan and attended by more than 50 family members and former colleagues of the honorees, the event commemorated the many years of dedicated service Foxwell and Baker devoted to advancing health care in Dorchester County and beyond. The occasion included the unveiling of portraits of both honorees, both painted by Laura Era, well-known local artist, also a friend of the Foxwell and Baker families. Foxwell’s portrait was donated by the Cambridge High School Class of 1971. Baker’s was commissioned and donated by the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary.
