Turpin, a 1918 alumnus, was appointed Professor in 1937 and acting dean of the Dental School in 1938. Attesting to his profound devotion to Meharry's School of Dentistry, which was founded in 1886, Turpin gave his personal finances to keep the school open during the Great Depression of the 1930s. In 1942, he resigned as acting dean. Two years later, he was elected president of the National Dental Association. Turpin died on Good Friday in 1948. To commemorate his life, the Meharry Day observance was established college-wide.
