Retired MSU Assistant Professor Anton “Tony” Zembrod,
well-known for the development of the university’s radiology
program, passed away July 11, 2012, at the age of 81.
Most of Mr. Zembrod’s 17 years at the university were spent
as the Coordinator of Radiologic Technology. In a 1989 letter
to a former student, President Louis J. Rodriguez stated, “Mr. Zembrod is the one
who has built the Radiologic Technology Program at Midwestern State University
into one of the finest in our nation. He has worked hard for many years. The
numerous successful graduates from our program are just a witness to the
success that has been achieved at MSU in this endeavor.”
Mr. Zembrod immigrated to the United States in August 1951 from
Germany. “With one small suitcase and his accordion, he arrived in New York
City aboard the Queen Elizabeth,” states his obituary. He was drafted to the
U.S. Army in 1952, but he instead entered the Air Force and earned his U.S.
citizenship while stationed at Maxwell Air Force Base. His military career paved
the way for his development of radiologic technology. In 1955 he became a
registered technologist with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
From 1967 through 1973, Chief Master Sergeant Zembrod served as the course
supervisor of the radiology section at the USAF School of Health Care Sciences
at Sheppard Air Force Base. In honor of his many accomplishments, the Chief
Master Sergeant Anton Zembrod Award is awarded annually to recognize
outstanding civilian, airman, noncommissioned officer (NCO) and senior NCO of
the Air Force radiography career field.
Upon his retirement from the Air Force in 1952, he joined Midwestern State
University as coordinator of the radiology program. After earning his Bachelor
of Science in Radiologic Technology from Midwestern in 1974, Mr. Zembrod
completed his Master of Education from the University of Oklahoma in 1977.
The Anton Zembrod Scholarship was established to honor Mr. Zembrod’s
legacy at Midwestern State University. Contributions may be sent to MSU Donor
