Abstract

This delightful and authoritative biography comes from the skillful pen of one who first was Whipple's pupil and then faculty colleague and friend, altogether for more than 50 years. He has successfully conveyed an impression of the dignity, modesty, good sense, and practical idealism of one of the towering figures of American medicine. Written at the request of the Medical Alumni Association of the University of Rochester, the book will be read with pleasure and interest by both doctors and laymen, for it is the story of a man who made many remarkable contributions during a long and productive life as teacher, investigator, and administrator.

Whipple's professional career spans almost the entire period of modern scientific medicine in America. Thus, when in 1901 he entered Johns Hopkins Medical School (then reaching its full stature), among his teachers were the original department heads, "the four doctors," Halsted, Kelly, Osler, and Welch.
