Mould Fillings, which he termed Laboratory Fillings, to be
made and cemented into place. This was the first literature

Doctor Foster has been a member of the National
Dental Association, Southern Branch, since the time of its
organization. He is still a member of the Alabama State
Dental Society and an honorary member of the North Caro¬
lina, Florida and Mississippi State Dental Society. He is a
member of the National Association of Dental Faculties,
is an ex-president of that body and has filled from year to
year other important and responsible positions.
In 1896 Doctor Foster was elected to the chair of
Materia Medica, Pathology and Therapeutics in the South¬
ern Dental College; later in the term he was elected Dean of
the Faculty and still holds that responsible position. Under his
able management the classes have grown from an attendance
of about forty in 1896 to one hundred and seventy-five in
1908. Few people possess the rare qualities and wonderful
genius of this talented man, big-hearted, jovial, gentle,
kind, and yet when need be, as stern and inflexible as steel.
A true friend of the needy, his deeds of charity and
pure benevolence, though but little known, extend both far
and wide. Doctor Foster is a consistent member of the
Methodist church, and is also a high Mason, having attained
the degree of Knight Templar and the Shrine.
A genius in business, he has embarked in various busi¬
ness enterprises, all of which are successful.
Mrs. Foster has proven a strong helpmate throughout
all his active business life; herself possessing much business
tact and ability, she is able to direct affairs in his absence .tnd
at all times assist in consultation. Dr. and Mrs. Foster live
happily in their most beautiful and comfortable Peachtree
street residence in Atlanta, where their friends always
receive a warm and hearty welcome.
