Geocache Description:


Dr. Campos

 

Geocache com uma vista abrangente da vila das Lajes do Pico, terra adoptiva do Sr. Dr. Campos. Com tempo límpido poderá também observar uma perspectiva diferente do topo da montanha.

José Pinheiro Cardoso de Campos, médico, humanista e cidadão honorário do concelho das Lajes do Pico. Nasceu a 13 de Março de 1901 em Bustelo, concelho de Penafiel, mas foi a ilha do Pico e em particular as Lajes que tiveram um lugar especial no seu coração ao ponto de passar quase 42 anos da sua vida neste concelho, só regressando ao continente no ano anterior ao seu falecimento em 27 de Março de 1971.

Estudou medicina na Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade do Porto onde se formou em 17 de Novembro de 1925. Em 1928 por intermédio de um colega soube das Lajes do Pico e na possibilidade de vir a exercer medicina nessa vila, ao inicio, um pouco indeciso, decidiu experimentar apesar nada conhecer sobre os Açores e a 17 de Novembro de 1928 assumiu então funções de facultativo municipal interino, nomeação que passou a efectiva a 27 de Janeiro de 1929. Cumulativamente exerceu ainda as funções de Delegado de Saúde do concelho. A 3 de Maio de 1929 na cidade do Porto, casou-se com Maria da Conceição de Almeida Martins, regressando de seguida aos Açores na companhia da sua esposa a 5 de Maio do mesmo ano, união da qual resultou a sua única filha.

Pessoa considerada por todos pelos seus sentimentos altruístas, humanitários e desinteressados, compadecido pelos mais desfavorecidos, que igualava a si próprio e protegia, foi agraciado pelo Município a 2 de Junho de 1970, após deliberação por unanimidade, como cidadão honorário do concelho, sendo-lhe entregue o diploma em acto solene a 6 de Agosto de 1970.
