Stephen [Steve] C. Stuyck, (b. 1 July 1941, White Plains, New Jersey) came to Houston in 1972 to take a job as Director of Public Information for the University of Texas Medical School and for MD Anderson. In 1975 the Information Office was reorganized, and Mr. Stuyck came to work exclusively for MD Anderson. During his forty years of service to MD Anderson Mr. Stuyck served successively as Director of Public Information and Education (1975 – 1985), Principle Investigator for the Cancer Information Service Contract (NCI, 1975 – 2012), Assistant to the President (1981 – 1986), Assistant Vice President for Public Affairs (1985 – 1988), Associate Vice President for Public Affairs (1988 – 1999), and Vice President for Public Affairs. (He received his Masters of Public Health in 1999.) Mr. Stuyck served in the latter role from 2000 until his retirement at the end of 2012.
