The story of Robert T. Oliver's Spanish-American War service as an enlisted man, his role as an examining and supervising dental surgeon in the formation of the U.S. Army Dental Corps, and his rise to power as the chief of that service and president of the American Dental Association, is a fascinating tale. His successes, failures, and the achievement of his ultimate goals defines a man never a shrinking violet.
