Biography* Dr. Culpepper's medical degree was earned at George Washington University. He had further training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.

Dr. Culpepper did his internship at Touro Infirmary in New Orleans. in 1931.This is where he met his wife, Amelia Leake, who was a surgical nurse there at the time. His further affiliation in New Orleans was the two year residency in pathology at LSU Medical School in 1932-33.

Dr. Culpepper taught Pathology at the Tulane/LSU University medical center in New Orleans. His credentials also included Board Certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Culpepper and Amelia Leake were married in St. Francisville, LA in 1933. In 1934 they moved to Alexandria, LA where he set up a general clinic practice, with specialties in surgery and ob/gyn.

He performed open heart surgery long before it was done anywhere in Louisiana. At the time it was not yet called open heart surgery. In the early 1940's, Dr. Culpepper opened the thorax of a Louisiana man who had been stabbed in a knife fight, and sewed him back together. He lived for many years afterward, and that is how Dr. Culpepper was selected for the American College of Surgeons at a very young age.

At the age of 63 he sold his clinic, and returned to medical school in Psychiatry, earning that certification as well. He finally retired at the age of 74 from a long and illustrious medical career.

Aside from his medical skills he played violin in the Alexandria-Pineville Symphony, and once made a violin, tutored by an Italian patient .He avidly cultivated camelias, day lillies, Louisiana irises, and was president of the state societies. He was a licensed lay reader in the Episcopal Church. He was absolutely devoted to his wife of 55 years, Amelia Mumford Leake Culpepper, and to us three children -- Richard Leake Culpepper, Mary Mallory Culpepper Pearson, and Dorothy Wailes Culpepper Buoni.

Judge William Albright Culpepper, age 99, died Sunday, October 4, 2015 in Little Rock, Arkansas with his family by his side. He was born July 22, 1916 in Alexandria, Louisiana the second child of Judge Robert and Margarete Culpepper. One of his fondest childhood memories was summers spent at the family camp in Fishville, Louisiana.

He graduated from Tulane Law School in 1939 and practiced law for many years before becoming a District Court Judge. He later served twenty two years on the Third Circuit of Appeals for the state of Louisiana.

He served in the United States Marine Corp during World War II and saw active duty in the South Pacific for three years. He was awarded the Bronze Star and retired with the rank of Brigadier General.

During his life he was very active in community and church affairs. He was an active member of St. James Episcopal Church and a charter member and senior warden of St. Timothy's Episcopal, both in Alexandria, Louisiana. At the time of his death he was a member of St. Mark's Episcopal in Little Rock. Judge Culpepper was the first Campaign Chair and President of the United Way of Alexandria-Pineville, President of the Attakapas Council, Boy Scouts of America, Chairman of the Charter Commission which drafted the Home Rule Charter for the City of Alexandria, and recipient of the Civic Oscar presented by the Alexandria Daily Town Talk. His hobbies included fishing hunting and playing golf.

Speaking on his 99th birthday, he reminded his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, that nothing you do in life matters more than love of God and love of family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Mamie and his wife of 59 years, Thelma Polk Culpepper.

Survivors include his wife, Jane Ann Foote Jarrell Culpepper; his brother, Dr. Robert Culpepper; three children, Bill (Barbara) Culpepper, Rev.
