Some of the best papers of Harvey Cushing are here collected, divided into those which deal with medical education and the social aspects of medical service and those which are excellent biographies. The notes concerning William Thomas Councilman and the Mayo Brothers are of current interest. Most significant of all these essays is the one called "Medicine at the Crossroads," first published in The Journal. The entire collection is as well written, as inspiring, a group of essays as could well be accredited to any one physician.
