Charles Drew was black, but contrary to popular rumor he did not bleed to death when a segregated Southern hospital refused to give him a transfusion after a car crash. He received timely treatment by white doctors, but died of the overwhelming injuries he suffered in the accident? Charles Drew married the former Minnie Robbins in 1939. They had four children: daughters Bebe, Charlene, and Rhea, and son Charles Jr. Charlene, then Charlene Drew Jarvis, was later president of Southeastern University? Dr. Charles Drew was honored with a U.S. postage stamp in 1981.
