    Occupation Practice
    • After an internship in City Hospital in Cleveland, he was a resident in pediatrics at Provident Hospital in Chicago, 1934-35. This was followed by a two-year General Education Board fellowship in pediatrics at Children's Memorial Hospital
      and Provident Hospital. During this period, he did research
      on sickle cell anemia and published in 1937 a report entitled, "Immunologic Studies in Sickle Cell Anemia."

      Upon return to his native Washington, D.C. for private
      practice, he joined the staff of the Howard Univercity
      College of Medicine and Freedmen's Hospital in
      1937 as instructor in pediatrics (part time). He was
      subsequently promoted to clinical assistant professor and
      later to clinical associate professor of pediatrics. He was
      certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in 1942,
      and bcame a fellow of the American Academy of
      Pediatrics in 1948.

      In recent years, his interest centered upon gastrointestinal
      disorders in children. For the past 17 years, he has been an active participant in the gastroenterology clinic at Freedmen's Hospital. In addition, Dr. Cardozo served for 24 years as a school medical inspector in the District of Columbia Department of Health.

      He was a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics,
      the Medical Society of the District of Columbia, the Advisory Committee of the District of Columbia Crippled Children's Society, the National Medical Association, and Alpha Omega Alpha, having been one of the Gamma Chapter of the latter honorary medical fraternity in the Howard University College of Medicine.

      He was a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity
      and an Episcopalian. His hobby was photography.

    • He had practiced pediatrics in Washington, D.C. since 1937
    • The Washington Star of August 17, 1962, paid the
      following tribute to Dr. Cardozo in an editorial:

      W. W. Cardozo
      "It was highly fitting that the memorial services for
      Dr. W. Warrick Cardozo emphasized his contributions
      to the children of this city, for they exceeded those of
      the ordinary pediatrician. Apart from his private practice,
      Dr. Cardozo spent a part of each working day for more than 20 years as a salaried pu5lic school medical examiner for the D. C. Health Department. His real love, however, was his voluntary service over the years as a one-man medical staff for the Ionia R. Whipper Home for Unwed Mothers, the only home of its kind in Washington for Negroes. The standards of medical care which he inaugurated and maintained contributed largely to the qualification of the home several years ago as an agency of the United Givers Fund.

      "Somehow, he also managed to find time to engage in a variety of other local professional and civic activities.
      including the D. C. Health and Welfare Council and the Rock Creek East Neighborhood League. The recollection of one prominent colleague in these ventures is that Dr. Cardozo was "a worker" who had little interest in honorary titles. It is for these largely unheralded services, however, that he will be widely remembered and sorely missed."
