Dr. Norman King has been involved in a lot of "firsts" in Lodi. He was Lodi's first certified anesthesiologist, now retired. He was one of the original board members for Hutchins Street Square, where he's now "king of the Knights of the Upright," also known as Vacuum Buddies. He helped start the first free-standing outpatient surgery center in Lodi, which became the first non-smoking hospital.
And he helped found the Lodi Boys' Club, now the Lodi Boys and Girls Club.
